As you and your family head into the Christmas Season, and you feel the urge to dig out the Christmas lights, think of the lessons that your favourite holiday movies teach you.
The watch like horror films for your home’s electrical infrastructure. From overloaded outlets, to bad wiring, to poor exterior light choices, our holiday movies are littered with electrical disasters.
Christmas trees are full of beautiful, bright, swinging lights. Perfect toys for your cat. It’s important to hang them well, careful to keep them out of your pet’s grasp.
Your home’s electrical system does not end at the outlet. It extends out from the wall, snakes across your floor, and climbs up your Christmas tree.
Anywhere along the way, you could be at risk of frayed wires, loose connections, faulty bulbs or electronics. All of these can be dangerous for you, your pets and your children.
