Using an extension cord safely is important as you do not want to hurt yourself or your home. First, you need to understand that an extension cord is just a temporary solution, so fix your outlets or electrical system if needed for the long-term. Make sure not to use your cord outside when it’s raining as water and electricity is obviously very dangerous. It’s also important to only purchase cords that have been safety approved and not use off brand cords. Finally, pick out the cord that best suits your needs as cords are as short as 20 feet and as long as 150 feet.
- Extension cords must be used with caution and they are only a temporary solution, not a permanent one.
