On average, adults sleep about 8 hours each night – spending at least 1/3 of their day in the bedroom. Unfortunately, we are most vulnerable while asleep – which is why bedroom safety is crucial. Even though National Electrical Safety Month is coming to a close, it’s important to practice these safety tips not only in the bedroom, but other rooms where these apply as well:
- Before installing a portable air conditioner, check that the electrical circuit and outlet are able to handle the load.
- Large window A/C units should have their own separate electrical circuit so the system is not overloaded.
- Air conditioners should be cleaned at the beginning of every season to keep them running safely and efficiently. https://pattersonplumbing.com/prepare-air-conditioning-summer/
- And for an energy saving tip: If you have a portable air conditioner, turn it off when a room will be vacant for a few hours. You’ll use less energy cooling the room down later than if you had left the unit running.
