Safety Moment
The United States Consumer Product Safety Commission reports that 31,000 home electrical fires occur every year, and with over 180 cases involving electricity-related incidents that could have been avoided, home electrical safety is too important to ignore.

One tip for electrical safety in your home is to use the right bulbs, which can prevent electrical problems. With this in mind, check all lamps, fixtures and appliances to ensure you’re using the correct wattage.

If a light fixture has no wattage listed, use 60-watt bulbs or less. For unmarked ceiling fixtures, choose 25-watt bulbs.

PRO TIP
LED bulbs consume less power and reduce the risk of fixtures overheating.
