I have numerous electrical devices that have a three-prong plug, but most of my outlets only accept a two-prong plug. Should I use the adapters, or consider rewiring some outlets1?

I smell something burning, but I don’t see a flame. Do electrical fires have a peculiar smell?

I want to install a ceiling fan where a ceiling light fixture is. How difficult is the task? Should I call an electrician?

When I am cooking, washing clothes and have the television on occasionally a circuit throws. Do I need a new breaker in the breaker box?

I use an extension cord for a few items in my house/office. One of the extension cords gets warm to the touch from time to time. Is this something I should be concerned about and if so what should I do?

Are surge protectors beneficial? Which type of electrical devices should I utilize through a surge protector?

Are there other ways to protect my electrical devices without using a surge protector or in combination with a surge protector?

Is there an unsafe length of extension cord, or combination of extension cords, to use?
