What electric items can cause a fire to your Brookfield, MA home

1/21/2021 (Permalink)

We love our technology but having many electrical items may even cause a fire.  Electrical fires involve electrical failures or malfunctions when least expected. 

  • Space heaters

Many people have a space heater they use in their homes. Be conscious of where you place your space heater and watch its surroundings, also make sure the cord isn't plugged into a cord strip as well. 

  • Cords and Electrical circuit overloads

The most common one is cords and electrical circuit overloads. It is common to have many cord strips around the house and most of those cord strips have all 5-6 outlets with a cord plugged into them. This is why it is important to make the effort to never overload your outlets.

  • Light fixture

Another cause is lighting fixtures, both caused by the light bulb or by items near the light fixture. One thing that causes light bulb fires is when you install the wrong light bulb or watt size. The other cause is when putting materials such as fabrics or cloth near a lamp causing overheating.
