Here are some effective tips on house wriring this rainy season to keep your home and family safe:

Electrical house wiring is an integral part of a safe home. People often take care about the exterior beauty of their home, and ignore the use of quality wires to save some extra bucks. If good quality wires are not used the chances of short circuit rises during rainy season, that can lead to fire. It is highly recommended to use quality wires that are verified and tested by a trusted company. It is also necessary to check on the electrical wiring just before the start of monsoon. This gives enough time to the qualified electricians to replace the damaged wires with the new ones and ensure that the house is waterproof and safe.

Make sure that the area around the electrical circuit or switch board is dry. There are times, if the walls are not well maintained the rain water comes in through the wall and damages the area around the switch board. This makes the area wet or damp making it dangerous and shock prone. It is important to check on the quality of walls and house electrical wiring, to keep your home and family safe. If you think the area around the switch board is wet, do not touch the switch board or insert any electrical applaince, without wearing rubber gloves or chappals.

The first thing you need to remember while handling any electrical equipment or inspecting wires, is to check the power source. The main power outlet should be turned off and the plugs of the machines should be removed from their sockets. Secondly, you should wear protective gear like rubber gloves and slippers, safety glasses and dust masks. Never touch any electrical appliance directly, always use a quality tester to check the electrical unit or the appliance. If you want to inspect wires and cables, then make sure to get enough knowledge about the electrical codes.

Knowing electrical codes is very important, when it comes to checking wires and cables in electrical circuits. Electricity can be dangerous; if handled incorrectly, it can put both your life and that of your family members in jeopardy. Hence, learn about the local codes and regulations, and follow them religiously. When it comes to electrical house wiring, there are three basic components that you need to familiarize yourself with - the service entry, panel board and branch circuits.

Signs That Suggest Your Electrical House Wiring Needs A Change

electrical house wiring

Accidents at home can be avoided, if we pay attention to our electrical house wiring. Regular inspection and electrical maintenance can prevent many electrical hazards.

Circuit breakers and fuses play the most important role when it comes to preventing electrical accidents. They trip when the circuit is exposed to more electricity than it can handle. While fuses and circuit breakers perform the same task, the fuse requires a replacement whenever it is blown out, whereas the breakers can be used multiple times. If the fuse or the breaker blows out even when the number of amps passing through the circuit is low, then the electrical cables that connect to the circuit have multiple issues.

All About Electrical Cables

During building construction or house electrical wiring, it is important to use these cables carefully. The electrical cable jacket material is a potential source of adding fuel to the fire. Use of cable coating materials or cable jackets that are inherently fire-retardant, are beneficial to limit the spread of fire. During the time of installation, the plastic covering metal-clad cables are stripped off to reduce the fuel sources of fire. Another way to reduce the chances of a fire outbreak is, to use inorganic coatings and boxes around cables; this will safeguard the adjacent areas from fire threats. It is also important to have a thin layer of protection, as a fat layer can cause a heat trap.

Every wire company in India, makes sure that they provide their customers with the safest wires and cables. They possess a wide range of cable types like Heliax cables, flexible cables, direct buried cables, communication cables, coaxial cables, metallic and non-metallic sheathed cables, shielded cables, etc. These are the various types of cables that are electric in nature and are available in the market. It is very important to give safety the first priority, and ensure that our house is wired with great safety for a healthy life.

Why Quality Insulation Is Essential For House Wiring

House Wiring Solutions

Quality house wiring and insulation forms the pre-requisite of every modern home. The wiring that we use in our homes should meet a variety of factors, apart from meeting up with the requirements. The gauge size of the wire, the insulation used, the conductor and its size, and its sheath, should match the amount of electricity supplied through the outlet. The abbreviations used in the sheath of the cables suggests the tensile strength or the capacity of the wires. While THWN electrical cables are thermoplastic heat and moisture resistant nylon-coated wires, the THHN wires are thermoplastic high heat resistant nylon-coated wires.

While the heat resisting capacity of wires that have 'H' inscribed on them can sustain upto 167F, the ones that have 'HH' inscribed on them can bear upto 194F. The letter 'W' stands for water resistance, and 'N' stands for the nylon coating that makes the wires resistant to gasoline and oil. Moreover, the colour used in the sheath of the wire also signifies its purpose. Improper insulation will not only waste electricity and increase your power bills, but will also put your life at risk.

Color Codes In Electrical House Wiring

House Wiring Solutions

A color scheme for insulation on power conductors was introduced for safety purposes, and easy identification of the right wire. A formal color coding is mandatory for standardized electrical code, while the rest are optional. Codes are modified as and when they are revised, which results in different colors for older installations. Due to insulation exposure to heat, light and aging, the shades and colors of the codes may sometimes vary. The local rules are different in every area, due to which exceptions exist in the colors of wires and cables.
International standards were adopted because of its distinctive appearance, which reduced the likelihood of danger. To identify the safety of a wire, simple color codes are used. Through these codes, people can now easily recognize the wire that is safe. Awareness of simple codes like a yellow wire wrapped around a green wire is the the earthing wire. This wire is also known as the grounding wire, one that leaves the current in the ground causing zero harm to a person while handling it. There are people who cannot recognize the color red and green because of color blindness; hence, the color yellow was finalized as the color for earthing wires. When people work on house electrical wiring, they can work without any tension, when they see a yellow wire wrapped around the green wire.
