Beaverton Electrical Contractor for Holiday Safety

November 29, 2013

They’re here. The holidays. The lights. The shopping. The food. The lights. The shopping. The lights. The fragrance. The lights.  Santa Claus. The lights. Holiday parties. The lights. The nativity.

Did we mention the lights? Of course, as electrical contractors in Portland, Oregon and electricians in Vancouver, WA we kind of focus on the lights.

Now that Thanksgiving has passed, everyone is putting up their beautiful  trees and stringing twinkling strands everywhere.

So once more we want to talk to you about electrical safety.  It is possible to create really great light displays, but you need to keep a couple things in mind.

You can only put (3) 100’ strands of lights on each 15 amp plug – that’s it.  Most of your receptacles are a minimum of 15 amps.  It’s the safest way to go. Now if you do decide to go all out and plan out and extravagant holiday display, you might want to give Amp Electric a call.

Happy Holidays from your Amp Electric team!

Amp Electric recently came to my home to assist in my remodel of the kitchen. The work they did with all of my lighting was phenomenal. I look forward to hiring them again when I redo the entertainment room!
