Smoke and Carbon-Monoxide Alarms
Could you escape if your home caught on fire?
According to the National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA), 3 out of 5 home fire deaths result in homes without working smoke alarms, and occur when most people are asleep.
Are your smoke alarms expired? If your smoke alarms are 10 years or older they need to be replaced.
Smoke alarms should be installed in every bedroom, outside each sleeping area, and on every level of the home. Additionally, at least one carbon-monoxide alarms should be installed on every level of the home, including the basement.
Your risk of dying in a home fire is cut in half in homes with working smoke alarms (NFPA). Protect your family by having The Happy Outlet install smoke and carbon-monoxide alarms.
How much can you afford to lose?
As a homeowner you have spent thousands of dollars on products that rely on electronics. Catastrophic damage can result from a nearby lightning strike; however it is often the repetitive small surges that end up destroying your electronics over time. It is estimated that over 80% of the surges are actually generated from inside your home.
Many people have already taken the first step towards protecting a few of their electronics by using surge strips. However, to provide complete protection for all your electronics and appliances, surge protection must be installed at the breaker box. Call our experienced and professional team at The Happy Outlet today to discuss your options.
Did you know…ground fault circuit interrupters, or GFCIs, protect you and your family from electrical shock?
GFCIs should be installed in areas such as kitchens, bathrooms, outside, and anywhere water may come in contact with the outlet.
Many older homes lack these inexpensive, life-saving devices, and should be installed. Contact The Happy Outlet today to have GFCIs installed in the proper locations throughout your home.
How safe is your home?
Did you know that over 50% of home fires are caused by faulty wiring, and could have been prevented by arc-fault protection?
An arc fault is a dangerous electrical problem caused by damaged, overheated, or stressed electrical wiring or devices. Arc faults can occur when older wires become frayed or cracked, when a nail or screw damages a wire behind a wall, or when outlets or circuits are over-burdened.
When you install AFCI circuit breakers in your electrical panel you are protecting from dangerous arcing conditions that standard circuit breakers and fuses cannot detect. When the serviceman from The Happy Outlet leaves your home, you can have peace of mind knowing that the AFCI breaker will monitor your wiring 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
