Earth in the house: On stormy days, especially during the rainy season, if there is moisture on the walls of the house, it is a shock! Do you know why this is happening? This happens because the soil of the house does not collapse. Whether you have electronic devices or gadgets in your home, earthing is very important. Why is earthing important in your home? If you have high power appliances in your home from washing machine to AC then let’s know why earth is needed.
Sometimes we feel a slight shock of electricity when we touch a laptop or washing machine after touching the floor! Even when we step on the ground, we feel a strange electric shock. This is because we don’t have an Earthring in our house. Whether it’s earthing at home or malfunctioning electrical equipment, sometimes the current goes into the ground. As a result, when you touch an electronic device, you no longer feel any shock.
When an electrical appliance is damaged or the appliance’s cord is shorted, current flows from the outside. In such a situation, if someone accidentally touches the device, they may receive a severe electric shock. The degree of shock is so great that the person may die. In this case, you understand how important the earth is to your home.
When the main wire of a heavy voltage appliance like AC touches the body of the air conditioner, the wire connection loosens. At that time, current flows through the metal body of the AC. If an electrician tries to fix it by hand in such a situation, he may get a shock! But if the house is earthed, current flows through the wire and there is no possibility of shock.
Therefore, earthing is very important while wiring the house. Earth protects us from such electrical accidents. In the event of a fault in the equipment, it acts to absorb the current flowing through it. There are many species on Earth. But basically four types of soiling are done at home. It includes bar, plate, tube and strip earthing. You can make any earth as per your convenience and requirement. You should always consult a trained electrician for earthing.
