Useful Electrical Tips

Light Bulbs

Light bulbs are the single most common electrical fixture in homes, and proper light bulb safety can keep them from becoming a common electrical hazard.

  • Use bulbs that have the correct wattage requirements for each fixture -- using a higher wattage bulb can cause the fixture to overheat.

  • Consider switching to more efficient compact fluorescent bulbs that provide the same level of light at a lower wattage level

  • Always screw bulbs in tightly; a loose bulb can cause sparks or shorts.

  • Be sure to unplug or turn off a fixture completely before changing light bulbs.

Contact Haskins Electric at 623-937-3999 to find out your cost to switch out your incandescent bulbs to higher efficient compact fluorescent bulbs or even LED bulbs.

Tripped Branch Breaker at Main Service Entrance (Panel)

  • Haskins Electric strongly suggests against resetting a branch or main breaker. Each breaker in your panel has been designed to detect different types of faults and current and will trip when those levels have been met or exceeded.

  • If a short is detected and you reset the breaker back to the on position you put yourself at risk for injury caused by sparks.

  • When breakers trip they are doing their job and detecting a PROBLEM, please contact Haskins Electric so a qualified electrician can diagnose the problem.

Electrical Fire Safety Tips

When an electrical short or spark does happen, it is vital to understand what to do to prevent or put out an electrical fire to keep the damage and devastation from spreading.

  • Call 911 or other appropriate emergency services immediately in case of electrical injury or fire.

  • Never touch anyone who is being shocked; the shock can spread through body contact.

  • Do not put water on an electrical fire; use a dry fire extinguisher or baking soda instead.

  • Never attempt electrical repairs or rewiring without proper certification and experience
