Your home is a complex system of interconnected electrical components and appliances. When one element of this system is not working properly, it can have a ripple effect that impacts the rest of the system. Therefore, it is so important to maintain your home electrically and to keep your electrical appliances in good working order.
Your home’s electrical system is responsible for powering everything from your lights and appliances to your HVAC system and security system. When one of these components is not working properly, it can cause a disruption in your home’s power supply. This can be not only inconvenient but also dangerous. A power outage can leave you without heat or air conditioning in extreme weather, and it can also disable your security system, leaving your home vulnerable to break-ins.
When a fuse or switch fails, because it has been sulphated or burned, it may not be something noticeable at the moment, but even so it may be seriously affecting your electrical system in terms of consumption, thus affecting household appliances or deteriorating the efficiency of the normal consumption that before was enough for the whole house, and now much more energy is needed, as well as any of the above at the same time.
A poorly made splice can also cause serious problems at home or business as far as consumption is concerned, making splices is an important issue since an inadequate or poorly made splice can make bad contact and cause the installation to fail. If the current is high and the splice is loose it will get hot. Sparkling or heat from a bad splice is a common cause of many building fires. Before working on the electrical installation of a building or electrical/electronic equipment, who will check the system must have the necessary technical training, for example, the regulations of many countries prohibit the use of splices in some situations for safety reasons. It is common to prohibit joints where flammable gases can accumulate.
In addition to the potential hazards posed by a power outage, electrical problems can also lead to fires. According to the National Fire Protection Association, electrical fires account for an estimated 51,000 home fires each year, resulting in nearly 500 deaths, 1,400 injuries, and $1.3 billion in property damage. These fires are often caused by electrical appliances that are not properly maintained.
Due to issues of time, stress and tranquility, attention is not paid to those details that are always of interest and play an important role in our day to day. There is no better way to feel really calm, comfortable and safe knowing that your home or company is free of dangers and electrical risks; After ruling out and/or repairing any failure, if there is any, it is good that a next visit be scheduled at the reasonable time in which a check-up is required.
So, as you can see, it is very important to keep your home secure.
Request a visit from a technician to assess the status of your electrical system.
