    Common Causes for Electrical Fires Include:

    • Old wiring: Electrical systems have an average lifespan of 30 to 40 years. If you know your system is older than this, it’s vital to have its safety inspected. It is common for many homes in Kansas City to have wiring that no longer complies with the National Electrical Code, which could lead to potential fire hazards.
    • Faulty outlets: Many house fires are caused by connecting old appliances to malfunctioning outlets. The electrical system may not be able to handle the higher power demand of these products, causing the outlet to fuse.
    • Extension cords: Although extension cords help to simplify our lives without the need of an electrician, they should only be used temporarily. Extended and over use of extension cords can overload your circuits, leading to fires from overheating and sparking.
    • Light fixtures: Another common reason for electrical fires is lighting fixtures. Often people install light bulbs without noting what the appropriate wattage for the fixture is. Using a higher wattage what is marked safe for the fixture can cause the overheating and melting of the wiring and surrounding materials. This can lead to severe fire hazards.
