Wires are an essential part of all homes and form the backbone of our electrical systems. Yet, it is an aspect that is often ignored and overlooked. We should keep in mind the importance of wiring and make sure that it is up to the mark to ensure our safety. In this blog, MESCAB, the top wire manufacturer in Kolkata, shall take you all on a quick tour of what to keep in mind while wiring our homes and avoid common mistakes.
Points to Note in Home Wiring:
Earthing: Earthing is one of the most crucial factors to consider while wiring our homes. It provides a path for the fault current to flow, preventing electric shocks and fire hazards.
Colour Coding of Wires: Wires can be available in various colours and this is important for easy identification and troubleshooting. It can be really helpful to keep in mind the colour coding of wires while installing or repairing wiring in your home.
Load Calculation: It is important to keep in mind the number of appliances that will be used in your home while installing the wiring. This will help in determining the load on the electrical system and ensure that the wiring is adequate to handle the load.
Concealed Conduit Pipe Wiring: Concealed conduit pipe wiring is not only aesthetically pleasing, but it also reduces the chances of getting electrocuted. This system is made water-tight to prevent the entry of moisture and is safe from mechanical damages.
Common Mistakes to avoid
Working with wires requires caution to avoid common mistakes that can result in damage to the wire or equipment. Some common mistakes to avoid are:
Choosing the wrong size wire for the application can cause overheating and potentially start a fire. Always check the amperage rating of the circuit and use appropriately sized wire.
Over-bending wires when routing them through tight spaces can cause them to break or become damaged. Take care to route them smoothly and avoid sharp bends whenever possible.
Plugging too many devices into one outlet or circuit can overload the system, causing damage to the wires and potentially starting a fire. Make sure to distribute your devices across multiple circuits to avoid overloading.
If you notice any signs of frayed wires, loose connections, or other electrical issues, don't ignore them. These warning signs can indicate a serious problem that needs to be addressed immediately to avoid further damage or danger.
By avoiding these common mistakes and following proper wiring practices, you can help ensure the safety and longevity of your electrical systems.
