6 Tips You Need to Do to Keep Electricity at Home Safe When Going Homecoming for Eid


A famous annual habit of the Indonesians is to gather with their extended family in their hometown during Eid. However, when you leave the house for a while, you need to make sure that the house is safe and protected from all kinds of unwanted occurrences, such as fire or electrical disturbances. The following are some tips for maintaining electrical safety in your home when you go homecoming for Eid.


1. Turn off all electrical and electronic equipment


The very first thing you need to make sure is to turn off all electrical equipment such as TVs, air conditioners, refrigerators, computers, lights and other electronic devices before leaving the house. This is important for you to do because even a small incident such as a short circuit can cause a fire. Don't forget to remove the plug from the wall outlet to ensure that electronic equipment is not connected to electricity.


2. Check the condition of the power cord and socket


Check all electrical cables and sockets at your home, make sure they are in good condition to avoid the risk of short circuit. Before leaving the house, replace any broken cords or wall outlets that are apparent if they aren't already fixed. This will prevent fires and ensure that all electronic equipment left behind is in good condition.


Also, do not leave power cords that are too long or entangled in other equipment. This can cause the wires to overheat and start a fire. Make sure the cable is not connected to a voltage source when leaving the house for a long time.

3. Install an electrical safety device


In order to prevent all the bad things that might happen when you leave the house, you can install an additional electrical safety device besides the MCB (Miniature Circuit Breaker), namely the ELCB (Earth Leakage Circuit Breaker). The ELCB serves as an additional safety function to cut off electricity when a short circuit or leakage current occurs which can cause a fire or other electrical hazard.


4. Turn on the lights sufficiently


During homecoming, you can still leave the house in bright light. You can turn on some lights where they need light so you don't become a target for anyone with bad intentions. Smart lights can be set to turn on at a specific time whenever possible.


5. Report to neighbors or the local RT


Even though you have done everything you can to prevent electrical problems from occurring, you still need to report to your nearest neighbors that you will be going for a long time. You can ask for help from neighbors, head of neighborhood association, or trusted relatives to check the condition of your house when you leave. By doing this, you can ensure that your home remains safe during the Eid holiday.

6. Ensure enough electricity tokens


Don't forget to make sure there are still enough electricity tokens in your house during the Eid homecoming. You need to make sure there are enough electricity tokens because not all electronic equipment in your home can be turned off, such as the refrigerator. The refrigerator cannot be turned off just like that if it is still filled with various foods and drinks.


It is important to maintain the security of your home's electricity during Eid holidays. By following the tips above, you can ensure that your home is safe and protected from any risk of fire or electrical disturbances that might occur. Happy homecoming and always be on guard!
