Check the max recommended wattage on light fixtures to avoid overheating. Using a bulb with too high of a wattage can lead to fires. Most fixtures are labeled with the highest wattage bulb that should be used.
LED bulbs run cooler than other bulb varieties. Because they use less energy, LED bulbs are less likely to overheat or cause socket issues that can lead to dangerous electrical faults.
Plugging too many lights or electrical devices into a single outlet can overload the circuitry. Signs of an overloaded outlet include frequent popping of the breaker, flickering of lights, and warm or discolored outlets.
Install plastic or metal bulb guards over exposed light bulbs to prevent direct contact with the hot bulb. This prevents burns from accidental touching of hot bulbs.
Never keep lamp shades or light fixtures in direct contact with fabric, clothing, curtains or other flammable materials. The heat from bulbs can ignite them.
Inspect lighting cords to ensure they are not frayed, cracked or damaged. Damaged cords present a fire and shock risk. Never attempt to repair cords yourself.
The moisture in bathrooms can damage lighting fixtures and create electrocution risks. Opt for lighting labeled suitable for damp locations.
Recessed can lights can get very hot. Ensure all recessed lights have protective covers over the bulbs to prevent direct contact and fire risks.
By following basic lighting safety tips such as using the right wattage bulbs and keeping lights away from flammables, you can enhance safety in your home's lighting design. Protect your home and family by prioritizing lighting safety with a licensed electrician in Monmouth County.
