The forecast is calling for above average temperatures. Your home is becoming uncomfortably hot and you to start sweating with every move you make. What do you do? Chances are, you head for the thermostat or turn on the ceiling fan, but did you realize cooling devices can be very dangerous if you don’t use them correctly?
While we understand that routine maintenance on your air conditioning system is required in order for the equipment to operate efficiently and for years to come, exercising extreme caution is a must! According to the CPSC, 15% of consumer-product related electrocutions are attributed to large appliances.
Lots of times homeowners attempt maintenance and repairs on their own, without having a decent understand of how these devices work or the necessary precautions. For this very reason, we highly suggest having qualified electricians install and service any electrical equipment in your home. This includes ceiling fans!
Some of the leading types of injuries faced when dealing with air conditioners and fans include lacerations, contusions or abrasions and strains or sprains. Don’t take the risk – leave it to the pros at Lon Lockwood Electric!
