Every home has what is called the mains electricity, which is the general-purpose power supply of electricity. In order to access this power, homes feature plastic devices, called electrical outlets or sockets, which allow other devices or appliances to connect to the alternating current running through the structure. Other such devices that allow manipulation of the current include switches and dimmers, which allow one to cut off the power supply to a light bulb or lessen it and create a slightly darker room.

These are popular because they warm the room so stepping out the shower is comfortable and not bitter-cold and bracing. Many people forget the bathroom in their home renovations, which is a mistake, considering most people, on average, spend nearly a year and a half over the course of their lives. Read More…

arc fault breaker
Electrical arcs are breakdowns of gas that produce an ongoing plasma discharge. Essentially, electricity is flowing between two objects, usually through an electrical short. When a circuit has enough current to maintain an electrical arc outside of a normal switching device, the arc can seriously damage equipment, melting conductors, destruction of insulation, and fires.

Carbon Monoxide Detectors

carbon monoxide detector
Carbon monoxide (CO) is often called the “Invisible Killer” because it is a poisonous gas that is without color or odor and is easily produced. CO is the result of the incomplete burning of fuels, including coal, oil, propane, wood, kerosene, and natural gas. And machinery powered by these types of fuels, such as lawnmowers and cars, produce huge amounts of CO.
