Install plug protectors if there are small children in the house. Make sure it has adequate power to the lamp. Do not use bulbs of higher power because they can overheat and cause a fire. Screw the bulb thoroughly, because if it is loose you can also overheat. Pay attention to electrical hazards at home. A flashing lamp or an extension cord coiled can cause a short circuit or even a fire. Beware bare wires or bent, reheated plugs and electric shock or tingle when you touch an appliance.

Most households have a central fuse box or breaker box, which controls power transmission to different areas of the house. That is where the total or partial electric power is interrupted. Take time to familiarize yourself with the fuse box. If fuse, keep a few extra for emergencies. Work together with other family members and label each circuit, which facilitate cutting fluid to a particular area if there is an emergency.

Differential switches include a sensor that detects fluctuations of electric current when it is triggered skip to protect against electrical shock. Small buttons or keys have colors that allow you to restore the interrupted circuit and another button that lets you test them. Check them once a month and after storms to make sure they still fulfill its protective function. Substitute if not reset the current when brakes are the test button.
