As a homeowner, it is best to be cognizant and respectful of electrical power that allows you to operate so many things in your house; you should always keep safety in mind. Basic rules of thumb when it comes to electrical safety in your home are important and easy to follow.

It is important to do your own checks to identify any potential issues, so they do not become serious problems. Symptoms of electrical hazards in your home include things like warm or discolored outlets or switches, odd sounds such as buzzing or crackling coming from outlets or switches, loose fitting plugs in outlets, electrical breakers getting tripped often, etc. If you notice any of these symptoms, call in a professional electrician to address what could otherwise be a disastrous situation.
