Start 2022 off safely by making your home electrically safe! Almost every week, Branham Electric’s technicians visit a residence to troubleshoot a light not working. Too often, we find the homeowner has plugged the light into an extension cord to reach an outlet. We find something sitting on the extension cord or the cord being pulled too tight behind furniture to reach the outlet. Again, too often, we find the extension cord’s rubber jacket cut and bare wires exposed. These wires result in sparking and burning of the extension cord. This situation is not only a fire hazard but causes the light to quite working.
