Ting Fire Prevention Can Save Lives

Ting Fire Prevention for Homes

Protect your Loved Ones and Your Home with Ting

Home fires are a major cause of preventable injuries, death and property damage each year in the Delaware Valley and across the United States. Thankfully, taking just a few steps right now can reduce risks and save lives. At Oliver, we’re committed to your total home comfort, and this includes providing you with peace of mind in knowing that you’re protected against things like dangerous fires with the Ting fire prevention system.

How Does Ting Fire Prevention Work?

The Ting fire prevention system proactively monitors your home through the use of sensors that are installed across your electrical network. These sensors monitor for faults and other indicators that an electrical fire may be imminent. If an issue is detected, an alert will be sent to your smartphone, tablet, or other connected devices. Your Ting system can also notify an electrician to ensure that the problem is repaired quickly. While traditional smoke detectors only work once a fire has started, Ting gets ahead of the problem and allows you to have electrical repairs performed to prevent fires before they have a chance to start.

Additional Benefits of Ting Fire Prevention

Another exciting benefit to having a Ting system installed is that you can receive free lifetime replacement of any sensors, and you also receive a $1,000 credit toward any electrical fire hazard repair performed by Oliver. This is an added layer of protection for you and your loved ones, but it can also save you money now and in the future.

What Happens During an Electrical Safety Inspection?

…And Why It’s Important

Do you know when your electrical system was last inspected for safety? Was it when you bought your home? Many times, this is the case – major systems are checked for safety when the home changes hands, but otherwise are only looked at when the homeowner notices a problem. Unfortunately, this is not the best path to take when it comes to electrical safety in your home.

According to the U.S. Fire Administration, electrical fires account for $1 billion in property loss, 1,000 injuries, and 280 deaths in a year; these fires are caused by a mixture of system failures and avoidable misuse of electrical equipment.

When homes are inspected prior to sale, the home inspector reviews the overall safety of the home according to current codes. The two potential problems here are:

  1. Most home inspectors are not experts in each individual system, so they may not recognize all of the warning signs that a specialist looks for.
  2. Codes change frequently as new technology becomes available and data is compiled about potential risks and hazards.

Oliver’s trained electricians perform an electrical safety inspection that focuses on the safety and stability of your electrical system and identifies the most common warning signs of electrical fire hazards. We also look for ways that you can save money on your utility bills by eliminating so-called “vampire loads” and utilizing dimmers, timers, and energy efficient bulbs. Once the inspection is complete, the electrician gives a full report to the homeowner. If there are any suggestions for improvement, the electrician will prioritize them in terms of potential impact and any other factors that are unique to your situation.
