Did You Know??? Air Conditioners Are a Major Fire Hazard
In Nigeria, air conditioners have been found to be the most frequent cause of fire in homes and offices. This is due mostly to the unstable power supply system as well as substandard cables with which such air conditioners are installed by vendors. Fires caused by air conditioners (ACs) are more common in Nigeria than previously thought. In 2010 alone, roughly 7,400 fires were as a result of the operation of faulty air conditioning systems.
Most air conditioner fires in Nigeria are caused by a short circuit in the wiring which causes the appliance to overheat and subsequently ignite. Frequent power surges or fluctuation in the amount of voltage the air conditioner receives can also overheat the unit.
