It is undoubtedly every homeowner’s nightmare: a structure fire. Generally speaking, more than half of structure fires can be attributed to some sort of electrical or equipment malfunction. Stove fires, oven fires, furnace and air conditioning units are just a few examples of equipment that can start a fire due to internal malfunctions. That is the sort of problem that a homeowner is likely to be unaware of until it is too late and a fire has already started. Once the fire has started, its cause is only going to be a peripheral concern.
