Your electrician has to have an an electric plan in order to help you undertake major electricity projects. One common issue is the overuse of individual outlets by plugging in multiple adapters. Nowadays, most houses have a feature on their meter boxes that will turn off power to individual circuits if their amperage reaches dangerous levels. Circuit breakers, power boards and fuses are all various mechanisms for preventing too much electricity to flow through your home’s wiring.
- Plugging too many power strips into an outlet can bring the voltage too high and create a fire risk.
- Circuit breakers, fuses and power boards all serve the function of protecting your wiring from a power surge or overload by interrupting the circuit.
- It’s very important to have a licensed electrician conduct regular maintenance on your electrical system, as failure to do so can create a fire hazard.
“Traditional types of homes normally have only one electric outlet in every room. This is because electricity before was only intended for providing power to lights and a few appliances.”
