The holiday tunes are filling the air, the shopping lists are growing, and plans are going in place. It sounds like the holiday season is in full swing, so keep the ABCs of electrical safety during the holidays in mind.
Assess your decorations before plugging them in.
Most people keep their holiday decorations for many years. They pull them from the attic or storage annually to commence the holiday tradition of untangling, checking for dead bulbs, and arranging.
If you have just recently started to notice that the lights in your home are flickering, you will want to figure out what the cause might be so the issue can't be fixed as soon as possible. Some causes of flickering lights can be easy fixes and nothing dangerous. On the other hand, there are some causes of light flickering that can be very serious and that will require the immediate assistance of a licensed electrician.
