Summer Electrical Tips for Cuyahoga Falls

Staying Safe for the Summertime


Can you think of a more highly anticipated season than summer 2020? We’ve been cooped up since March, and people in Northeast Ohio are ready to get out and get some sun. Summer is also a great time to check the health of your home’s electrical system.

At Blue Collar Electricians, we are all about keeping our customers safe. We know that inspecting your Cuyahoga Falls electrical system every summer to make sure it’s in working order is critical. Here are some things you can do to practice summer electrical safety in Cuyahoga Falls this year:

Make sure that you have GCFI outlets anywhere there is water in your home.

From your bathrooms to your kitchen, having GFCI outlets is key to being safe. Basements and laundry rooms should also have these outlets installed. It is also important to ensure that any outlets that power your pool or hot tub are grounded.

Check all of your extension and electrical cords for fray and damage.

Cuyahoga Falls is known for some great barbecues and summertime soirees, and that means many people will be running extension cords to the patio or yard to power radios, cooking equipment, air compressors, and whatever else is needed to entertain the neighborhood. When pulling out those cords for the first time of the season, it’s a good idea to check them for damage to avoid fires. 

Make sure that all of your major appliances are grounded.

Summer is a great time to upgrade your patio and garage outlets to ensure that they are grounded. If your Cuyahoga Falls patio has a fridge or appliances on it, make sure that you have those appliances plugged into outlets that are safely grounded!

These are just some tips to help our friends in Cuyahoga Falls safely use their electrical systems this summer. As always, let the experts at Blue Collar Electricians pay a visit to perform an inspection to make sure you are safe this summer. We are waiting to book your visit today!
