Penndel, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/28/2017 -- Home and business owners who are dealing with increased electrical outages during the fall season are encouraged to contact A-1 Electric for help mitigating the seasonal causes of power outages. There is an increased need for electrical contractors in Montgomery County, PA in the fall season because of inclement weather, increased energy usage, and animal intruders tend to make this season one of the highest for electrical interruptions.
According to research by the Edison Electrical Institute, 70% of power outages can be attributed to weather-related causes. Hurricane season can be an especially tough time of year on electrical lines, as high-speed winds and heavy rains drench the East Coast of the United States through mid-November. Short circuits are also common within homes thanks to increased energy usage and animal interference.
Fall is the time of year in which the temperature starts to drop, and animals begin looking for warm places to hibernate and build their nests. The walls of residential homes and businesses, unfortunately, provide the perfect spot for mice, raccoons and squirrels to move into. This usually comes along with chewing through wiring, which can cause increased instances of power outages.
Animals aren't the only ones spending more time escaping the cold. As people begin to spend more and more time indoors and use more energy, more short circuits will occur.
Anyone in need of electrical repair or electrical inspection in Montgomery County is encouraged to contact A-1 Electric by calling 800-401-6114 today. However, please note that we are unable to perform both an inspection and electrical service due to the law.
