Electrical Upgrades-Shock Prevention Devices
What if you actually had a way to help protect your home and your loved ones from electrical shock? Now, what if we told you that there actually already is a way. The threat of electrical shock is very real. It can come with serious consequences.
Although the amount of shock can vary depending on degree of exposure, as well as other factors, it is not something that you want to have to deal with. The resulting physical effects can range from mild muscle dysfunction to more serious cardiac arrest. So, this means it can go from painful all the way to deadly, neither of which is anything you should want to deal with. It only makes sense to want to know more about shock prevention devices and what they can do for you.
Here is some information you should know about shock prevention devices for your Keller home.
Installing A Shock Prevention Device
Shock prevention devices are an essential tool to keep you and your loved ones safe. Aside from shock, these devices can also help to reduce your risk of an electrical fire. Each year, more than 40,000 homes are impacted by accidental electrical fires. This can cause serious injuries in addition to sufficient property damage and loss. Yet most of this could be prevented or minimized by simply installing an electrical shock prevention device in your residential or commercial structure.
There are two main types of shock prevention devices to install:
Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters, or GFCIs, and Arc Fault Circuit Interrupters, or AFCIs. The first type works to prevent accidental electrocution from happening by detecting electrical current leakage and then disconnecting the circuit. The other shock prevention devices are designed for fire prevention and work by detecting electrical arcs and then disconnecting the circuit before it can develop into a fire.
The bottom line is that you now have options available to you in order to prevent exposure to electrical shocks or fires resulting from unintended arcs. Is there really any reason not to implement this into your home and make a difference with your safety? Get in touch with our pros today and let us take care of your Keller electrical service needs.
