It is common to hear homeowners talk about spring cleaning when the weather starts to warm up, but don’t think that you need to stop at cleaning out the garage when it comes to springtime home improvements. Sure, it’s great to clear out some of the old items that have accumulated and to get the lawn ready for summer. You may also want to consider upgrading your electrical system once spring arrives as well, though. This is a great way to add value to your home while also making it a safer, more efficient place to live. Contact the Redmond, WA electrical technicians at G&S Heating, Cooling & Electrical, Inc. to learn more.
A very basic, but very beneficial, electrical upgrade that you can make throughout your house is to replace any old, two-pronged outlets with more modern GFCI (ground fault circuit interrupter) outlets. These outlets will protect you from electric shocks should any current leak out. Protect yourself and your electrical equipment by installing grounded outlets this spring.
You may also want to consider upgrading your breaker box if it is getting older.
