Electrical Maintenance
Home electrical safety misconceptions that are common

Oftentimes, homeowners are not aware that their electrical systems are outdated. Or, they are aware but do not understand how important it is to use up-to-date electrical hardware. 

One of the most common misunderstandings we encounter is that it isn’t necessary to switch from an old fuse box to an electrical switchboard because it’s in working order. The problem is that fuse technology is well over 100 years old, and fuse boxes were designed to handle the electrical needs of a different time. Today’s electrical switchboards, which come with circuit breakers and safety switches, are safer and more reliable. They’re also easier to maintain and quite affordable.

Another misconception is that safety switches aren’t needed when you have circuit breakers. Yes, circuit breakers protect electrical circuits from damage caused by overcurrent or overload. However, they do not prevent electrocution, as they are not adequately sensitive. Safety switches are, cutting power to a circuit almost instantly when electrical current leakage to earth is detected.
