    Wiring Devices & Light Controls – The Home Depot - February 14, 2021 by Mr HomeBuilder

    There are a range of different light switches to choose from based on the functionality youre looking for. Certain switches offer special features that can make your home more convenient and energy-efficient.

    Types of Light Switches

    Single-pole switches are the most common electrical light switches youll find in a home. They control one fixture from a single location, offering an ideal solution for small spaces such as bathrooms and closets. Their simple operation makes them easy to install and replace.

    For hallways and staircases, consider three-way switches. They can control a fixture from two locations. Install these light switches on both ends of your hallway or staircase so you dont have to walk in the dark to find a switch in the middle of the night.

    Four-way switches are used to control lighting from three locations. While theyre not as prevalent in the home as single-pole or three-way switches, these light switches are a suitable option for large rooms with multiple entrances. Be aware that you must use one four-way switch alongside two three-way switches in a four-way circuit.

    Dimmers give you more control over your lighting. They allow you to adjust a lights intensity via a slider, dial, button or other control without completely turning it off. Since dimmers consume less electricity than standard light switches, they can help you save money on your energy bill. Dimmers also extend the life of your light bulb because they put less strain on the filament.

    Other Types of Switches

    For even more personalization, enhance your home with smart light switches. You can easily turn your lights on and off or adjust the brightness and color from anywhere in your home using your smartphone. Many smart switches are also remote light switches, giving you another option to control your lighting without carrying your phone.

    Think about your needs when installing or replacing light switches throughout your home. For no-frills operation, opt for standard toggle light switches. Dimmers and smart home electrical switches are perfect for anyone seeking personalized control and energy savings.

    Our Types of Light Switches guide provides even more features to personalize your switches by including timers, motion sensors and time delays.

    The 411 on Electrical Burns – University of Utah Health Care - February 14, 2021 by Mr HomeBuilder

    Feb 12, 2021 2:15 PM

    Our lives are dependent on electricity, 24 hours a day. It is such an important part of our day to day living that it is almost impossible to fathom a world without electricity. Even while we sleep, electricity is keeping our food cold and our security systems operating. Throughout the day, throughout the year, we tend to take electricity for granted.

    In the United States, on average 400 die from electrocution and 4,400 are injured each year because of electrical hazards. Of these, 180 are related to consumer products. Another 325 die and 4,000 are injured in workplace electrical accidents, according to data published by the National Safety Council.

    Electrical burns, as their name implies, are burns sustained when a person comes into contact with an open current of electricity. The electrical current runs through the body, damaging internal tissues, muscles, organs such as the heart and kidneys and/or the nervous system, often without doing any major harm to the epidermis (the outermost layer of skin). In some cases, electrical burns can render a person unconscious.

    There are 6 main classes of electrical burns:

    There are many circumstances that can lead to a person suffering any of the electrical burns mentioned, such as chewing on wires, using frayed wires, approaching downed power lines, attempting to do the work of an electrician when you are not one, and sticking a knife or fork into a toaster oven. These burns can also result from submerging electrical devices in water or even from simply using these devices near open or still water.

    Treatment will depend on the type of electrical burn you sustained. Some burns may require surgery to treat internal damage, while others only require topical ointments and creams to address external damage. Since it is difficult to determine the full extent of an electrical burn on your own, it is advised to consult a medical professional. They can help you uncover any internal injuries and set you on the quickest path to recovery.

    The University of Utah Health Burn Center is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. If you have any questions, call 801-581-3050.

    Pair of electrical fires prompts warning on the use of space heaters – The Hutchinson News - February 14, 2021 by Mr HomeBuilder

    By The News staff| The Hutchinson News

    Hutchinson firefighters have battled two house fires in two days blamed on overloaded electrical systems, prompting them to caution residents about the use of space heaters.

    The latest fire was reported at 10:50 p.m. Wednesday when fire crews responded to 118 E. Ave E on a report by the residents of smoke in the house.

    Firefighters detected light smoke showing from the attic and upon investigation found a fire in the walls and attic near the electrical panel, according to a report posted by Battalion Fire Chief Jeremy Unruh.

    While crews made access to the fire quickly, they could not put out the fire entirely until Evergy arrived on the scene to disconnect the power to the home.

    The first fire was reported at 5:44 a.m. Tuesday at 209 W. 11th Ave., again after light smoke was detected by residents in the house.

    As fire crews searched in the ceiling for hidden fire, it became apparent that the fire had been burning for some time in the concealed spaces between the first and second floor, the report stated.

    Fire crews performed an aggressive interior attack by using multiple handlines and were able to contain the fire in the room of origin. However, fire crews had to perform extensive salvage and overhaul to locate all hidden fire in the ceiling and the home sustained smoke damage throughout.

    The Red Cross was notified to assist the occupants.

    Fire investigators determined the cause of this fire also to be electrical. It was reported that the homeowners' furnace heat exchanger had cracked, which made the furnace inoperable. To heat the home, the owner used a stove and multiple space heaters. This combined approach overloaded the old wires in the home, causing the wood ceiling joists to start on fire.

    The Hutchinson Fire Department wants to send out a warning about portable heater use in the home, Unruh said in his release. These small units can quickly overload your electrical system and cause electrical damage, which most of the time can go unseen until it is too late.

    The appliances draw an incredible amount of energy and using more than one at a time can overloadyour home wiring, especially in older homes, fire officials warned.

    "Because they draw so much electricity they are also expensive to use, so a lot of the time it's cheaper and safer to turn up the thermostat instead," the release said."But if you have no other option, please only use one at a time, keep it at least 3 feet away from anything combustible, and turn it off when you're not in the room."

    Fire officials also issued a warning to watch for frozen furnace exhaust vents. Because of the extreme cold, moisture in the exhaust can freeze inside the exhaust piping. Not only can this cause a fire, but if the exhaust is blocked, it will not allow deadly carbon monoxide out, which will build up in the home.

    Anyone with questions may call 694-2874 to talk to fire officials.

    Family displaced after early morning electrical fire in Evansville – Eyewitness News (WEHT/WTVW) - February 14, 2021 by Mr HomeBuilder

    EVANSVILLE, Ind (WEHT) An early morning electrical fire Friday has left one family temporarily displaced from their home.

    Firefighters were called to a home in the 2300 block of Tennessee St. around 2:16 a.m. for a possible house fire. Crews said they saw smoke upon arrival and were able to extinguish the fire within 15 minutes.

    Fire officials say the children noticed the fire first and told their parents, who unsuccessfully tried to put the fire out before leaving the house. Everyone made it outside without injury.

    Fire investigators say the fire was an electrical fire that started in the attic space. The damage was contained to the attic space and ceiling of the back room and limited to wood structural components and insulation near the fire.

    The American Red Cross was called to help the occupants of the home, who will be displaced until electrical service can be restored. They stayed with family overnight.

    Photo supplied by: Little Visuals/Pexels

    As temperatures dip, its important to stay safe while keeping warm inside.

    The Province has partnered with Technical Safety BC and the BC Professional Fire Fighters Burn Fundto raise awareness about preventing home fires and injuries.

    The annual Burn Awareness Week campaign kicked off on February 7th, and it runs until the 13th. This years theme is Electrical Safety from Amps to Zap!.

    While it says electricity is not often given a second thought, the Province is reminding you to stay cautious and aware when plugging in devices to charge, watching TV, or snuggling under a heated blanket.

    Electrical burns are basically burns that result from an electrical current passing through your body and causing damage, says Campbell River firefighter,Jeremy Fyfe.

    That can occur from touching live wires, from a young child putting something into a live electrical outlet, or even just from touching electrified water.

    Fyfe says this can result in not only burns to the surface of your skin, but also deep tissue damage or even organ damage.

    According to the Office of the Fire Commissioner (OFC), B.C. saw a total of 12 injuries and two deaths related to electrical fires last year.

    In order to prevent electrical fires and burns, the Province urges you:

    The OFC has launched new social media channels, and its teaming up with Technical Safety BC and the BC Professional Firefighters Burn Fund on a smoke-alarm giveaway via Facebook. Find more detailshere.

    ELE department renamed as Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering – The Daily Princetonian - February 14, 2021 by Mr HomeBuilder

    The formerly-known Department of Electrical Engineering (ELE) will now be recognized as the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE), the University announced in a recent press release.

    Explaining the transition, the department wrote in the announcement that the renaming better captures the departments range of strengths and impacts. It then went on to say that computing has always been an integral component of the ELE department and that the change was only natural.

    "The discipline of electrical engineering is exceptionally broad and has always been the nexus of innovation in new generations of computer and information technologies, added Dean of the School of Engineering and Applied Science Andrea Goldsmith in the announcement.

    The decision received approval from all voting members and was viewed favorably by faculty and administrative staff throughout the department.

    Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering Niraj Jha expressed his agreement with the renaming, highlighting how it aligns with the variety of courses and research within the department.

    Including both Electrical and Computer in the title better reflects what our department does, he wrote in an email to The Daily Princetonian. Various activities in the Computer Engineering part of the department include courses and research on Computer Architecture, Circuits, Security, Machine Learning Accelerators, Formal Verification, THz Electronics, Smart Healthcare, Power Electronics, etc.

    The announcement shared a similar sentiment as it mentions the various research projects currently undertaken by professors in the department, which includes communication networks as well as computing platforms and applications.

    While the ECE department is pleased with how the renaming will impact faculty, the announcement also expressed excitement for the opportunities it will offer students within the department.

    In the announcement, ECE Department Chair Sharad Malik said the renaming will expand opportunities for our students entering the workforce and makes a statement to our external partners about Princetons strengths in transformative technological innovation.

    Darren Chiu 23, who declared ELE as his concentration last spring, is satisfied with the renaming of the department and how it now more accurately reflects his coursework.

    To Chiu, the departments renaming did not come as a surprise as he reflected on his realization of the major role computing played in the department.

    I also thought that it was a mind blowing experience seeing ideas from ELE 206 [Contemporary Logic Design] make their way into and support certain concepts in COS 217 [Introduction to Programming Systems], he said. The change also aligns more with what I have always been interested in, being that combination of programming and hardware.

    According to Jha, the department also hopes to attract more prospective concentrators with its newfound emphasis on computing, which may entice students who did not previously consider entering the department.

    The name change makes it possible to more easily convey information on this range of Computer Engineering activities to those not that familiar with the department, Jha wrote to the Prince.

    ECE Undergraduate Program Coordinator Jean Bausmith echoed Jhas statement in an email to the Prince.

    I personally am very happy with the change to the new name, she wrote. I look forward to meeting the first-years at our spring open house who might be interested in exploring what ECE has to offer.
