We Care About Your Safety
The world is moving at warp speed, with new electrical innovations arriving daily, like electric cars, battery-operated lawn equipment, robot vacuums, and smart plugs. These new products make life easier for us, but we need to ensure that we use them in the safest way possible.
These rapid advancements require further electrification and safe, efficient devices supporting the increased energy demand. Here are a few ways you can prepare your home.
Are you thinking about purchasing an electric vehicle? Make sure your home is prepared for EV charging. When doing the research, you will notice different levels of charging stations; level 1, level 2, and level 3; most homes will opt for a level 1 charging device. Before plugging in, make sure your home is ready. Have a qualified electrician complete a site assessment of your home or business to ensure you have proper electrical capacity for EV charging; check your charging cords to see if they are certified by a National Recognized Testing Lab; clear an ample space for your EV charger, and have a licensed electrician install your new charger.
Be Smart About Outlets
Worrying about whether or not you left the coffee pot on during the day is a thing of the past when you add Smart Plugs to your home. These devices take safety to the next level. You can turn off home devices from anywhere by plugging these into your existing outlet and downloading an app on your phone, which alleviates the worry when you are away.
