It’s easy to take our home’s electrical system for granted, but that can be dangerous. Most of our electrical system is hidden behind drywall, leaving the complex parts of the system out of sight and out of mind.
It’s going to take some visible signs of a malfunction to alert you that anything is wrong with your electrical system at all. But even then, it’s easy to ignore these signs entirely! We might not think of flickering lights or a tripping circuit as “normal,” but since it’s not causing any damage, we tend to tolerate it.
The problem is that whatever’s causing these annoyances might pose the risk of electrical fires or electrocution.

When it comes to fireplaces, that can be tricky. Even though they do provide the important function of keeping your home warm, it’s no secret that many homeowners want them simply because they look and feel nice.
Balancing the “need” vs. “want” in this way is something unique to fireplaces. Fortunately, we have a few perspectives that might help you decide.

Fireplaces are wonderful additions to your home for their aesthetic and functional charm. Styles range from rustic and traditional in appearance to sleek and modern. As for the type of fireplace, there are the traditional wood burning kind, gas-fueled, electric, wood-stove… the list goes on.
Regardless of which kind of fireplace you choose, however, an important thing to keep in mind is how that new fireplace will affect your indoor air quality. While modern-day fireplaces are incredibly safe to operate, some of them need to be operated according to their respective instructions. Failing to do so can create risks like polluting your indoor air with harmful exhaust.
Today, we’ll go over some ways that you can keep your air quality intact while using a fireplace.
