F.H. Furr's Plumbing, Heating, Cooling & Electrical Insider Blog

A New Weapon To Fight Electrical Fires

Did you know that home electrical fires account for an estimated 51,000 fires each year? That's just one of many frightening facts from ESFi. At F.H. Furr, we understand the importance of keeping your home safe from the dangers of electrical issues.

Although we can help to prevent electrical problems through annual Electrical inspections, we can take it a step further now, with our Electrical Hazard Detection test. 

Unlike most electrical contractors, our electricians are CurrentSAFE® certified experts in electrical hazard detection, highly trained in all aspects of electrical safety and testing.

When you make the decision to invest in your home safety with an EHD test, our electricians thoroughly inspect, test, safety check, and evaluate all of the electrical components of your home. We don't guess or speculate when it comes to accurately diagnosing issues and recommending cost effective solutions. The result of this comprehensive evaluation is an understanding that your electrical system is safe for you and your family, while delivering clean power to your home. 

When you get an EHD test in your home, you'll have peace of mind and assurance of your family's safety from electrical hazards. The test will:

  • Greatly reduce the risk of an electrical fire in your home
  • Identify dangerous shock hazards
  • Assure clean, dependable power to home electronic equipment

Our non-destructive testing procedure requires no cutting, drilling or removal of wall materials and is normally completed in less than a day!

F.H. Furr utilizes revolutionary methods of testing and diagnosing electrical problems in your home that could lead to dangerous shock and fire hazards. 

Our CurrentSAFE® trained electricians utilize newly developed technology that essentially allows them to look behind walls, pinpointing wiring problems that can jeopardize your safety, including:

  • Low Voltage Condition 
  • Overload Circuits
  • High Resistance Connections
  • Short Circuits
  • Malfunctioning Circuit Breakers
  • Undersized Wiring
  • Overheating
  • Loose Connections
  • Improper Grounding
