Suretest Resistance Meter Helps Prevent Electrical Fire

Prevent Electrical Fire - Call Dixie
Here is a sobering fact: Alabama leads the nation in house fire deaths. A big reason why is because many home electrical systems in the state are the originals installed in the 1960s and 1970s using aluminum wire instead of copper, putting these homes at risk of electrical fires. If it has been more than a year since your electrical system has been inspected, your home could be at risk.
At Dixie, we know our most important job is to ensure the safety of our customers. That’s why we’re the only company with the Safe & Sound Service, aimed at preventing a deadly fire in your home. The cost is small compared to saving your home and family. This “pre-disaster” detection process uses highly sophisticated technologies including Ultrasonic Arc Detection, Infrared Thermal Imaging and Circuit Tracing, tests that can detect problems before disaster strikes. We also use a Suretest Resistance Meter, which tests voltage levels and drops. If there is a high resistance in any connection due to a bad splice or loose connection, or because of a damaged conductor, its condition will be revealed in this test, potentially averting electrical fire.
Our electricians are standing by 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to help our customers with any electrical emergency. Schedule your Safe & Sound Service today. The cost is small compared to saving your home or your family and for a limited time, free safety consultations are available. Call Dixie, and it’s done!
