One of the main reasons that reading up on electrical safety tips is so important is to prevent fire hazards. One aspect that more homeowners should consider is their exhaust fans. Not all appliances have exhaust fans, but those that do need to be kept clean. One example of this is your clothes drier. This is just one reason cleaning out the lint before each new load is so important.

Keeping the exhaust clean also helps to lengthen the lifespan of your appliances. This, in turn, saves you money that you can spend on other important aspects of improving your home. If you’re not sure which appliances use exhaust fans, check the manuals or do a quick internet search for each one, then keep a list handy for future use.
