If for any reason a circuit is interrupted allowing a current to travel down an unintended path that is known as a short circuit.

In high power situations, this can produce catastrophic results. Around the home a short circuit can be dangerous, not to mention rather harmful to someone’s electric appliances and devices. The most common cause of a short circuit in the festivals is worn insulation around wires allowing contact were it shouldn’t happen. Someone can cut the risk of damage to your appliances and electronics by using some very simple yet effective methods.

  • Try to remember to unplug electrical items when not in use. Many of the electrical items are still using power even when you have turned them off.
  • When it is time for movie night or presentation on a big screen, take a moment to examine the power cord and look for cracks, especially where the cord enters the plugs. This is a common place for short circuits to occur.
  • Ensure that the customer has grounded outlets is an inexpensive way to reduce risks – especially when it comes to appliances that develop an internal short circuit.
  • If you are a home owner who is serious about safety and home energy efficiency. A home energy audit will provide you with information on where and how energy is being lost in your house, as well as which electrical systems are operating inefficiently or may be a hazard.
