Christmastime has come once again! It’s around this time that we dust off our Christmas trees and hang garlands in our homes. Malls will be packed more than usual as people rush to take advantage of the crazy sales and finish Christmas shopping on time. Every house in the neighborhood will be displaying bright and colorful Christmas lights at night.

However, don’t get carried away with lavish displays of lights this December. Every year, incidents of fire are recorded during the Ber months due to faulty wirings and electrical energy via wiring devices in the Philippines.

Electrical Wiring is essential in our day to day lives. We use it every time we turn on the lights or use the microwave. Here are some signs that you should look for when considering whether or not you should replace your home’s electrical wiring:

 

Breakers and Fuses Blow Often

Both breakers and fuses protect your home when there is an overload in your circuit. They do this by ‘tripping’ or ‘blowing out’. If your breakers and fuses blow or trip often, it could mean that there’s a problem in your wiring.

Dimming Lights

Do you lights flicker or dim when you use another appliance? If this happens more than occasionally, you may have a faulty wiring or a breaker that needs to be replaced.

Scorch Marks on Outlets and Switch

Watch out for scorch marks on your outlets or switches. This might be caused by faulty wiring in the circuit near the switch or outlet. In this case, you should replace the switch or outlet immediately.

Burning Smell

If you notice a burning smell when you enter a room, call an electrician right away. Turn off your breakers and remove your fuses just to be safe. The burning smell might be caused by a short in your outlets or switch.

Damaged Wires

Sometimes, wires fray over time. In other cases, the damage on your electrical wiring might be caused by rodents. Either way, damaged wires are dangerous and should be replaced immediately.

 

Keep Your Homes Safe From Electrical Problems

It would be best to let a professional deal with your house’s electrical wiring. Especially if you are not knowledgeable about these things at all. If your house is old, it’s likely that your wiring is also old and outdated. It would be safer to pay an electrician to inspect the status or condition of your electrical wiring.

However, you should still take some precautions to avoid accidents from happening. Check the signs listed above and coordinate with your electrician to keep your house safe from electrical problems.

When ignored, faulty wiring can lead to worse problems such as fire. Be safe this Christmas by replacing your old electrical wiring before it causes any more damage and replacing them with more durable ones.

I can vividly recall one of my family’s pre-Christmas bonding: decorating our Christmas tree. The lights and different ornaments simply enchant you and get your creative juices flowing while you put them on the tree. I remember spending the whole day in front of it, checking if the decorations are in symmetry. Sometimes, we need more than 3 pairs of hands to finish the Christmas tree.

Now, times have changed. As we all grow up, we have different priorities. Taking out one day from the busy week is too much to ask just to decorate a tree. It may come as very tedious job to pull out a big box full of lights and ornaments. You have to dig your way into the attic to get your Christmas stuff. As I look back, it was hard work.

I am aware that a lot of families are probably experiencing the same things now, what with the fast-paced environment we have now.

Some of you might have even forgot that they should be putting up a Christmas tree by now, and thinking “Great. Do I even have the time to pull out those boxes?”

Here is a good news!

Meiji Philippines is offering a fuss-free way to put up your holiday tree with the Pull-up Tree! In less than 5 minutes, you can already display a decorated tree in your living room, without the mess and hassle and hours to waste. Assembling the Pull up Tree is as easy as 1, 2, 3, literally…

Just follow these 3 simple instructions:

  1. Assemble the posts for a stand
  2. Pull up the Chrsitmas tree
  3. Place on the first-assembled stands and plug in an outlet

Modern Pull-up Tree

It is very evident that you get to save on a lot here.

First, you conserve the energy to get you moving and set up your heavy tree; cleaning the dusty decorations and Christmas light you stored in the far corner of your storage room.

Second, you do not need to spend more money on new decors or lights if you found some of them already broken (By now your money should already be going straight to Christmas shopping).

Third, you can set up your tree even before you go to work, or before you go to bed. You can do it alone, too!

Finally, after the festivities are over and it is time to pack up again, less than 5 minutes is only needed to clean up and put the tree back to its box. It can also save space, as you only need to store it in one area with no other boxes labeled as Christmas Decorations, Christmas Light and Christmas Tree. One container is all it takes!

 I think we all agree that as joyful as the holidays are, it is also tiring and stressful. So cross out one of those chores by getting yourself your own Meiji Pull-up Tree now!

Happy Holidays!

The Christmas bells are ringing, the Church choirs are singing, and the Christmas lights are blinking. It’s the season again, and you feel it come in all senses. You see all the decorations, you hear all the Christmas music, you smell the Christmas food which you also can taste, and you feel the coolness of the wind as the frigid breeze touches your skin. So along with the coming of this time of year, you join with the rest of the world. Maybe you’re planning on setting up a Christmas tree, extremely decorated, and spun around with flashing Christmas lights. Perhaps you’ve already even set it up. Well that’s a good thing, but have you ever considered the pros and cons of the traditional Christmas lights in light of fiber optics?

Traditional Christmas Lights               Advantages

 Traditional incandescent Christmas lights are very easily obtained. In any store, mall, or bazaar, you’ll be sure to find them there with a great variety to choose from. It ranges from the color, bulb size, wattage, and of course, price and quality. Versus fiber optics, the traditional Christmas lights are way easier to find in order to purchase.  In the context of illuminating Christmas trees, any regular Christmas tree, be it an artificial plastic one or a real pine tree, can be decorated with blinking, flashing ornaments.

Usually in decorating Christmas trees with fiber optics, the fiber optic system itself is built from the base of the Christmas tree to along its branches. If you were to illuminate a Christmas tree by the use of fiber optics, you would have to buy another tree. Another advantage of the traditional Christmas light is that you can put them along the border of the fence, by the roof of your house, or along around the edges of your windows. They’re very flexible and you can put them anywhere.

Disadvantages

However, traditional incandescent Christmas lights gravely lose to fiber optic technology. Why? It’s because of a few reasons that are essence. Let’s look at this in the context of lighting a Christmas tree. Incandescent lights are not very efficient. Fiber optics are more efficient since it only needs one light source, and the fiber distributes the light to different points, unlike the traditional ones where each point that light emanates from is a separate light source.

Fiber optics can display different colors even though it’s just from one set. Traditional Christmas lights may vary in color, but the color of the set that you got is like that forever. The best it can do in variation is by how it changes the pattern of its blinking. How boring!

Most importantly, Christmas lights heat up. Fast. They’re the most common cause of fires in households. On the other hand, fiber optics don’t heat up at all. You can touch the glowing ends and you can still keep your fingertips unburnt.  Ever had an experience of being burnt by an incandescent light bulb from a Christmas light that’s as hot as an iron? Yeah. You know what I’m talking about.Fiber Optic Christmas Trees

Also, Christmas lights lit up through fiber optics don’t have to be turned off during the night. It saves so much energy and it so not prone to heating up, that you can keep the happiness lit up all throughout the night. Unlike Christmas trees lit by traditional Christmas lights, you’d have to unplug the lights throughout the time you sleep for safety and economical reasons.

Meiji Electric offers a choice of Fiber Optic Christmas Trees. You may deem it unnecessary to buy another Christmas tree, but this is an investment. Imagine the slash it will give your electric bill. Imagine the colors it can showcase off. Imagine the safety that you can have.

Here at Meiji Electric, your consumer delight is our prime priority. And it would be a shame to see your bearing with something that can be improved. So why don’t you give up using unsafe, low-tech incandescent Christmas lights and switch to Meiji Fiber Optics?
