Ehinger Electric electrical service in San Luis Obispo

Electrical Safety- 

Electrical safety is Ehinger Electric's top priority. Electricity kills hundreds each year, and most deaths occur with household voltage. Some of our clients have been under the impression that household voltage isn't dangerous, nothing can be further from the truth. Electricity is all around us and is quite safe when installed following code, however, electricity is a force. Like water or fire it can get out of control and do serious damage to homes and even cause injury or death. Unlike water or fire, dangers from electricity cannot usually be seen. Electrical hazards wait unseen for days, weeks, and even years and give little or no warning before they strike. We want to be a part of stopping electrical hazards. Ehinger Electric offers clients regular home safety checks and would also like to help bring awareness to home safety features. Below are some videos from Electrical Safety Foundation International and Eaton that explain in detail the benefits of GFCI's, AFCI's, and Tamper Resistant Outlets. If you have any questions please contact us.
