Converting Your Bulbs To LED!

 

At ARC Electric Company we are urge our customers to take an initiative with LED bulbs, LED bulbs have become an energy efficient option to lighting your home.
 

GO GREEN, GO LED
 

The pricing for LED bulbs has drastically dropped in the past few years, this energy efficient option lasts considerably longer than traditional bulbs. While the upfront costs may be a bit more than expected, the overall savings is worth it. Consumers are reducing their monthly power bills and re-coping their upfront costs.

Testing Your Smoke Alarms Monthly
*Smoke alarms should be maintained according to manufacturer’s instructions.
*Test smoke alarms at least once a month using the “Test” button.
*Make sure everyone in the home understands the sound of the smoke alarm and knows how to respond.
*Follow manufacturer’s instructions for cleaning to keep smoke alarms working. The instructions are included in the package or can be found on the internet.
*Smoke alarms need a new battery at least once a year. If the alarm chirps, warning the battery is low, replace the battery right away.

 

Testing Your CO Detector
*Test CO alarms at least once a month using the “Test” button to ensure it is drawing electrical power. It will emit high-pitched, loud beeping, usually louder than a smoke detector. During this test it will also speak to you.
*Make sure everyone in the home understands the sound of the CO detector and knows how to respond.
*If the audible trouble signal sounds, check for low batteries and replace. If it still sounds, call the fire department.
*Replace CO detectors every 7 years.

Electrical Safety Reminders to Keep Your Family Safe this Winter!

I want to continue to showcase the ESFI “Warm Up to Safety this Winter” campaign, this can be found here. We try very hard to send out a monthly reminder to please check your Smoke Alarms. Just trying to relay important tips to keep you and your family safe this Winter!
 
Smoke Alarms
* Smoke alarms save lives, reducing the risk of dying in a home fire by half.
* Purchase smoke alarms from reputable retailers(or installer) that you trust. Choose alarms that have the label of a recognized testing laboratory.
* Have working smoke alarms on every level of your home, outside each sleeping area, and inside each bedroom. Interconnected alarms offer the best protection.
* Check your smoke alarms at least once a month by pressing the TEST button on the alarm. Replace batteries at least once a year.
* Smoke alarms should be replaced at least every 10 years.
* If the smoke alarm sounds, the whole family should follow your escape plan and go to your outside meeting place.

 
Space Heaters
* Heating equipment is a leading cause of home fires, particularly during the winter months. Understanding how to use portable space heaters safely is very important.
* Never leave a space heater running when you exit the room or go to sleep.
* Do not use space heaters in rooms where children are unsupervised.
* Keep space heaters at least three feet away from anything that can burn— furniture, bedding, clothes, curtains, and papers.
* Put the space heater in a place where people will not run into it or trip over it.
* Heaters should be placed on a flat, level surface. Do not place a space heater on furniture.
* Do not use a space heater in damp or wet areas—like the bathroom.
* Do not use your space heater with a power strip or extension cord.
* Unplug the space heater when not in use. Inspect the cord regularly for damage.
