Be Responsible with Coachella Valley Solar Energy and Other Utilities

June marks National Safety Month, a wonderful reminder of how important it is to prioritize safety with utilities at home. Coachella Valley solar energy and others are so part of our everyday lives, it’s easy to forget they come with risks. Learning how you can be responsible with your utilities helps them function properly and, most importantly, keep you and your loved ones safe.

Practicing safety with utilities keeps you and your family out of harm’s way. Contact Stada Energy today to learn how.

Let Experts Install Your Solar Panels

Everyone respects the do-it-yourself type. One who has no problem taking matters into their own hands. If this describes you, know we admire this quality but still recommend you let Coachella Valley solar experts install your solar panels.

They’ll ensure your residence’s solar panels are correctly positioned and exercise safe installation practices. Not knowing how to install solar panels can lead to injuries like sprains and pulled muscles. Stepping aside and letting the professionals install your panels helps everyone remain unscathed.

Unplug Unused Appliances

Just because an appliance is off doesn’t mean it isn’t using power or a potential safety hazard. Unplugging unused appliances lowers your residence’s energy usage, and lower energy usage equals lower energy bills. In regard to safety, unplugging these appliances:

  • Prevents overheating
  • Lowers your utility bills
  • Makes your home safer

All are wins.

Double Check Wattage

Unused appliances remaining plugged in isn’t the only way overheating can happen. When lamps, light fixtures, etc., have bulbs with the incorrect wattage, overheating and other electrical problems can occur.

Most lamps and light fixtures will tell you what the correct wattage is. If for some reason yours don’t, remember the majority of lamps can handle 60 watts, according to HomeServe. Also remember less wattage is safer than more.

Communicate Potential Hazards with Your Entire Family

None of these safety precautions are worth much if everyone in your house isn’t aware of them. Similar to how it’s important to teach your children about renewable energy, it’s just as vital to teach them and the rest of your family about utility safety. Make June the time you address these topics with everyone under your roof.
