Preparing Your Electrical System for Winter

Most homeowners are aware of the importance of preparing their property for winter weather. Unfortunately, many people neglect to include electrical maintenance. The harsh temperatures, heavy snowfall, excessive use of heating appliances and a large amount of electrical holiday decorations can put a lot of stress on your system. At Mr. Electric of Katy, Texas, we strive to help local home and business owners achieve a safe and efficient electrical system. We want you to have the same results for your household. Here are a few tips on how you can properly prepare your home for the coming season. 

Schedule an Electrical Inspection

A major priority should be to ensure the safety and effectiveness of your electrical system by investing in a professional electrical inspection once a year. Fall inspections provide the perfect opportunity to repair any issues before the heavy demands of winter approaches.

Install Whole Home Surge Protection

Winter storms and system overload can lead to powerful surges. Many homeowners attempt to avoid surges by using power bars or outlet strips. Sadly, this won’t protect your most valuable tools, equipment and appliances from damage. Whole home surge protection defends your entire property against the perils of electrical surges, so you can extend the longevity of your most expensive electronic investments. 

Perform Routine Maintenance on Heating Appliances

Your family will rely on heating appliances more when the temperature drops. Make sure your water heater, radiant floor or HVAC system is functioning at peak performance. If there are maintenance tasks or repairs needed, be sure to complete them before the first frost. 

Ensure the Safety of Outdoor Outlets

Do you love decorating for the holidays? If you like to be brightest home in the neighborhood, you’ll likely have an overwhelming amount of string lights, laser lights and animatronic characters. All these items will need to be plugged into an outlet. Be sure you have enough outdoor outlets and take extra precautions to protect them from exposure to rain and snow.

Invest in a Standby Generator

Snow and sleet can cause big issues for the electrical grid. Many people find themselves in the middle of a power outage for hours or days thanks to bad weather conditions. Protect yourself from the stress and inconveniences of an outage by investing in a standby generator installation. Doing so will ensure that your heating system, refrigerator, cooking appliances, water heater and other important items are working despite having problems with your electrical lines.

  • Car Charger Installation in The Woodlands

    Electric cars provide a lot of great rewards for their owners. They are environmentally friendly, economical and are now available in a range of attractive models. While millions of drivers around the world have begun to embrace electric vehicles, some are still reluctant because they are not sure how charging their car will fit into their daily schedule. 

  • Do You Need to Replace Cloth Wiring?

    If your home was built in the 1960s or earlier, there is a good chance cloth wiring was used in the electrical system. As the name implies, cloth wiring is an older type of wiring that is insulated with cloth.
