Grounding Electrical Wiring

The Importance of Grounding in Your Home's Electrical Wiring System

In every modern home, electrical grounding is a necessity. Grounding is beneficial in many ways, but most of all, it ensures that your home is protected from power surges, which sometimes, can cause you damages. If, for instance, a problem arises in your wiring system, the grounding wire serves as an alternate pathway for electrical current to be channelled away from the building.

What is Electrical Grounding?

Electrical grounding is a backup pathway in your home’s wiring system, which provides an alternative route for current to flow to the ground in the event of a fault occurring in the wiring system. The absence of electrical grounding is in fact, the source of many electrical fires and electrocutions. Electrical grounding basically connects your electrical system to the ground, which is a safe way to prevent power surges from getting into the building’s electrical wiring.

How Electrical Grounding Works

Remember that your home’s wiring system has a negative wire, a positive one, and a ground wire, which provides a pathway for current to flow back into the ground. This arrangement ensures that things are running smoothly without any disruptions. 

If your power supply develops issues, excess current flows through the entire electrical system, including devices and appliances in your home. This is what an electrical grounding prevents, as the excess current is safely conducted by the ground wiring back to the ground. When your home’s wiring is properly grounded, you don’t need to worry. 

However, if you think that your home’s wiring system is compromised or you don’t have any in the first place, now would be a great time to call Merv Electric for a consultation or rewiring.
