We’re ready to take on the new year at GEN3 and we hope you are, too! As the year quickly draws to a close, we’ve got some special tips and suggestions for you so you can get your home in order and save a few bucks next year. See below for five tips to get your home’s electrical system in tip-top shape:
1 - Stop Buying Inexpensive Chargers
We’re sure you’ve heard the saying “you get what you pay for” and it definitely holds true when it comes to electronic device chargers. Trust us when we tell you it’s worth shelling out a few extra dollars for an original equipment replacement.
There are millions of counterfeit products on the market that will save you some money, but they can severely damage your electronics or even cause a fire.
2 - Check Smoke & CO Alarms
Make it a goal of yours to check your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors at least once a month. This will help ensure you’re protected from danger should an unfortunate situation arise.
3 - Swap Out Old Light Bulbs
We’ve been telling you for a few years, but if you still haven’t done so, now is the time to switch out your out light bulbs for LEDs. They may cost a bit more now, but they’ll save you a fortune over the lifespan of the bulbs.
4 - Have A Whole-House Surge Protector Installed
Power surges often come without any warning and they can wipe out your entire electrical system if you’re not prepared. With whole-house surge protection, it’s one less thing you’ll have to worry about each night.
5 - Cut Back On Overall Energy Usage
Sit down with your family and make a pact with each other to cut back on energy usage as a family. Remind them to turn off lights and devices when they’re not in use and you’ll all reap the benefits this year!Ready to make some electrical upgrades for the new year?
