Electrical

Circuit breakers protect electrical wiring from overloading. Frequent tripping of circuit breakers or blown fuses could result from faulty appliances and should be investigated.

Some appliances have special power requirements, i.e. if the stove does not work, the fuses within the stove should be checked in addition to the owners manual.

Care should be taken not to overload or bypass electrical circuits. Personal injury or fire can result. Household wiring is installed to accommodate typical residential electrical loads.

Many fires occur each year from improper wiring. It is strongly recommended that if a home owner undertakes any additional electrical work, a certified electrician be contracted.

Ceiling fans will have a certain amount of vibration which is considered normal. Fans constantly operating at high speeds may become unbalanced, resulting in excessive vibration. Refer to owner’s manual for regular maintenance.

All bathroom plugs, exterior plugs, and kitchen plugs are provided with GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter)protection. These plugs protect against shock caused by a ground fault in tools and appliances. If there is no power at these plugs one can press the reset button at the receptacle to get the power back on. If the GFCI plug keeps tripping using the same appliance, then the appliance should be checked. There may be only one plug with a reset button that works for several plugs on the same circuit (eg. if the GFCI is tripped in the 2pc bathroom, the reset button may need to be pushed in the ensuite bathroom to restore power to the plug in the 2pc bathroom).

For efficient range hood operation, the grease filter must be cleaned frequently. Potential fire hazards are created by grease accumulation on filters. Filters should be washed periodically in mild detergent and dried thoroughly.

C.O. alarms are installed at all bedroom levels and smoke alarms are installed on every other floor level. They are all interconnected and hard wired. There is a back up battery in the C.O. alarms that will require periodic changing. Regular dusting of the sensors is recommended using a vacuum cleaner as the sensors are very sensitive to dust. This should be done at least twice a year. It is easiest to remember to clean them when changing the clocks back and forward (read the users manual). C.O. alarms should be replaced every 7 years. Smoke alarms should be replaced every 10 years.
