- Watch the breaker –If you breaker is tripping immediately after resetting it, that means there is an electrical problem in your home. Investigate the corresponding area of your home and diagnose the problem.
- Touch your outlets – After unplugging your appliances touch your outlet’s faceplate. A warm faceplate means that you may be overloading your outlet. Assess how many electronics you’re plugging into that outlet and make changes.
- Grab the tape – If you have any extension cords with exposed wires, make sure you use electrical tape and wrap it up. Exposed wires can cause harm to people who touch it, or damage the cord itself.
