In the early autumn, the weather is getting colder and colder, and many people will gradually organize light and light clothing in summer. In fact, in addition to clothing, household appliances also need to be reorganized.
But you know what? There is also particular attention to the cleaning of electrical appliances during the season. If it is not handled properly, waste of electricity is a trivial matter. In serious cases, it may become a “time bomb” at home!
1. Recycling “overage” electrical appliances
The most typical cause of electrical fires is the overage use of household appliances!
The safe service life of household refrigerators and air conditioners is 10 years; the safe service life of household washing machines/dryers, range hoods, household gas stoves and water heaters is 8 years.
If the “aging” electrical appliances are not maintained or replaced in time, the electricity bill will increase when they are used again in the coming year.
The old air conditioner not only consumes electricity and electricity, but also brings out dirt and bacteria when the wind is out, which is harmful to health.
Refrigerators that normally run well begin to show poor cooling effect, excessive noise, and even slight vibrations, which may be caused by “aging”.
If the “aging” refrigerator continues to be used, not only will it consume electricity, but the food storage function will also be degraded, and refrigerant leakage of the refrigerator may also occur, polluting the food environment.
Problems such as water seepage, water leakage, electricity leakage, excessive noise, and unclean laundry are all signs of “aging”. In severe cases, explosions may even occur. The first time you need to check whether the washing machine has been used for longer than the service life.
When the color of the screen is dim and the picture is blurry and jittery, you must pay attention to it. In addition to considering the quality of the TV itself, it is also necessary to check whether it is “aging”. In addition to the increase in power consumption of “aging” TV sets, spontaneous combustion or explosion accidents also occur from time to time.
“Aging” water heaters will have abnormal noises during operation, and safety devices will also have malfunctions. The accumulated impurities and dirt in the inner tank will not only pollute the water quality, but may also leak electricity.
3. Seal up “idle” electrical appliances
Many people think that just unplug an appliance that hasn’t been used for a long time, and it will still look like new when it is used again, but in fact, unused appliances can easily break. Why? Can it be broken if it’s not used much?
Electrical appliances that are not used for a long time will fall into dust over time. Once the dust accumulates, it will hinder the operation of internal parts, making the electrical appliances run without being smooth and causing damage to the electrical appliances.
The air environment where it is placed is relatively humid, which is likely to cause the household appliances to generate steam during use, which will accelerate the corrosion of the components over time, and even cause the whole machine to fail.
There is electrolyte inside the capacitor in the circuit board, which can easily cause leakage or performance degradation if it is not energized for a long time, which will affect the use of electrical appliances.
