Here are a few facts from the U.S. Fire Administration regarding house fires.
During a typical year, home electrical problems account for 67,800 fires, 485 deaths, and $868 million in property losses. Home electrical wiring causes twice as many fires as electrical appliances.
December is the most dangerous month for electrical fires. Fire deaths are highest in winter months which call for more indoor activities and increase in lighting, heating, and appliance use. Most electrical wiring fires start in the bedroom.
#1 Electrical Wiring
Most electrical fires result from problems with “fixed wiring” such as faulty electrical outlets and old wiring. Problems with cords and plugs, such as extension and appliance cords, also cause many home electrical fires.
In urban areas, faulty wiring accounts for 33% of residential electrical fires.
Many avoidable electrical fires can be traced to misuse of electric cords, such as overloading circuits, poor maintenance and running the cords under rugs or in high traffic areas.
#2 Home Appliances
The home appliances most often involved in electrical fires are electric stoves and ovens, dryers, central heating units, televisions, radios and entertainment areas.
- Routinely check your electrical appliances and wiring.
- Frayed wires can cause fires. Replace all worn, old or damaged appliance cords immediately.
- Keep electrical appliances away from wet floors and counters; pay special care to electrical appliances in the bathroom and kitchen.
- Don’t allow children to play with or around electrical appliances like space heaters, irons and hair dryers.
- Keep clothes, curtains and other potentially combustible items at least three feet from all heaters.
- If an appliance has a three-prong plug, use it only in a three-slot outlet. Never cut the ground prong off.
- Never overload wall sockets. Immediately shut off, then professionally replace, light switches that are hot to the touch. Call us if the cords are frayed or cracked.
Need a Second Opinion? Call Us!
At Dave’s Electric Services, we understand that spending hundreds or thousands of dollars can be unexpected. We recommend getting a second opinion for any large job. Even a third opinion is a good idea. Upgrading or adding to your existing electrical system is a major decision. We offer free estimates. Here are some things to look for when comparing estimates:
– Are all companies reputable and experienced?
– Are all estimates for the exact same work? Make sure you are comparing apples to apples.
– Check warranty information. How long a company stands behind their work is often a good sign.
– Are all estimates relatively close in price? There is an industry average for electrical work. Bids that appear to be too high should really be examined closely.
There are many companies working illegally without insurance, licenses, or a Master Electrician who charge extremely cheap prices. There are also companies who charge three times the average cost of work and hope you pay because you don’t know any better. If you have a question or just want to know if your estimate is in the right price range, give us a call and we will be glad to help you.

“I would like to compliment you on the service call that was conducted by (your tech) today. Extremely polite and very helpful. I will file your phone number away for any electrical work.”
I just wanted to thank you for the excellent work that you and your crew did when they rewired my entire house. We feel so much safer having an electrical system that is modern and up to code. We were worried about having a fire with this old wiring.
Your men were here when they said they would be and finished on time. Why, they even cleaned up after themselves.
Thank you again for the wonderful service and a reasonable price.
