- Limit space heater usage
Prolonged usage of a space heater is one of the main reasons for electrical fires. Make sure you’re using them only when a room is occupied. You could also run them at half power–this will still warm your room while significantly lowering the risk of overheating your outlets.
- Invest in a monitored smoke detector system
Although this won’t prevent an electrical fire, it can greatly reduce the damage caused by one. At the first sign of smoke, our 24/7 monitoring center will alert both you and the fire department at the first warning signs of a fire.
