Electrical System Routine Maintenance
Be careful not to plug too many appliances or devices into one circuit. Being aware of this can prevent power outages.
Use the self-test button on the ground fault circuit interrupter/arc regularly to maintain optimum performance.
Use a voltage tester to make sure electrical connections are dead before working with any wires or other electrical components.
The National Electric Code requires that ground fault circuit interrupter outlets be used where dampness has occurred (basements, bathrooms, outdoors, etc.).
If you're working on a circuit, leave a warning message and tape the circuit breaker so it stays in the OFF position. Take the fuse out when working with a fuse box.
Do not touch plumbing or gas pipes when working with electricity. The pipes are used to ground the electrical system.
When working with overhead electricity, do not use metal ladders.
Flip the circuit breakers off and back on again once a year. This will help keep them working properly.
Rather than overload an outlet with too many devices, hire an electrician to install more outlets on a different or new branch circuit.
If you must use an outlet for more plugs than it contains, a power strip is preferred over an extension cord.
Don't put too much stock in a circuit breaker that is part of a power string or surge protector. This only protects the device itself. You should still be careful not to use too many outlets or power strip spots on the same branch circuit. Too many devices requiring power, with or without surge protectors, puts you at risk for overloading the circuit and causing a fire.
Do NOT run appliances or extension cords under carpet. Cords are designed to be kept cool by the movement of air around it, keeping it from overheating.
