Why is it important to get adequate maintenance?
Carrying out periodic maintenance checks in a building allows you to prevent serious unforeseen events related to electricity. Timely detection of this type of mishaps translates into savings in unexpected expenses, which can be very high, both in repair or even replacement of the equipment seriously affected by simple problems that could be detected and solved before.
Proper and convenient maintenance of key electrical components in the home is important in terms of home safety, as it not only guarantees multiple ways of protection but also their safeguarding. Here are four key points where proper and timely maintenance translates directly into home security:
Air Conditioning and Heating Ventilation (ACHV) Systems
The proper functioning of your home’s ACHV system is, in general, a convenience. However, there are cases in which the proper functioning of the ACHV could become a necessity.
Consider, for example, that extreme temperature variations, whether higher or lower on the thermometer in a home with young children, the sick or the elderly, increase the risk of life-threatening complications. These extreme temperature changes only depend on the malfunction of the ACHV system. This can be completely avoided with proper planning of the check ups to all its components at the right time, for instance, before hot or cold months begin.
Ensure that your walkways and patios are well-lit for you and your guests at night, greatly increasing the security of your home.
When there is good lighting in the front of the house, it helps to deter thieves who always prefer to act when it’s dark. However, it is a fact that light fixtures, bulbs, and lines of your outdoor lighting require periodic maintenance and replacements.
Hiring an electrician to carry out regular checks will ensure permanent external lighting.
Home fires can be devastating to a homeowner, not to mention the possible loss of human or animal life.
Wiring-related problems are one of the leading causes of home fires caused by electrical breakdowns. The increase in temperature in the wiring can, over time, degrade its protective covering to the point of breaking it completely, causing failures.
If this happens, the uninsulated wires are at risk of coming into contact with each other, creating short circuits that start fires right there, inside your home’s walls, or in other areas where these lines pass. Some signs that your wiring is deteriorated and old are occasional electrical shocks that occur when plugging in an appliance or simply touching it while it is plugged in, constant tripping of breaker switches and brown and aged plugs or sockets.
