Your home’s electrical devices provide safety and convenience, so it’s important to keep them powered and up to date. Make sure you have plenty of spare batteries around for smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors. Check all your flashlights as well to ensure they’re in proper working order. Other items like clocks, calculators, and your electronic bathroom scale will also require periodic battery replacement.
You’ll need extension cords and surge protectors for your media player and speakers, and good solid TV mount for your flat screen. AV accessories are also essential for your home entertainment centre. For your laptop or computer station, it’s always a good idea to have extra cords, cables and other peripherals on hand in the event of a faulty connection. If you have a video recorder, make sure you’ve got some extra memory cards to use when needed.
