Every property, whether commercial or residential, has electrical appliances and equipment that needs to be connected to a power source and so electrical wiring and other installations are all part and parcel of this system. The flow of power through these systems is regulated by circuit breakers, which are the safety devices that stop the flow of electricity in case an overload is detected. However, there are a number of other issues part from overload that can cause problems in an electrical system. Short circuiting is one such problem that can cause a lot of damage and lead to fire as well, if it isn’t addressed on time.
Electricity is something we can’t really live without and we are so dependent on it in our day-to-day lives that we almost take it for granted sometimes. Apart from the actual electrical fixtures like the powerpoints, lights etc, all the wiring and related installations are generally out of sight. Unfortunately, this also sometimes means they are out of mind and we rarely give too much thought to them unless something actually goes wrong or an electrical point or appliance doesn’t function the way it should.
Fire is something that can cause a significant amount of damage to property and is a threat to the lives of people living or working there. Most people presume that only inflammable materials cause fires and that these fires can be controlled with water. While that is true, it’s important to keep in view the fact that fires can also be caused by different faults in electrical installations. At times the electrical devices or appliances within an electrical system cause an overload and overheating, which can result in a fire.
Electrical wiring and systems that were installed up until a decade ago were quite different from the ones used today; and there was a specific reason for this. The types of electrical equipment and appliances used at that point of time were vastly different from the ones used today and their power requirements weren’t as demanding. However, things are different now; and current day appliances are power hungry.
