Fuse Board Replacement and Earthing

What is earthing in electricity?

It is rightly critical to understand what Earthing entails – beginning with its definition as “the method of transmitting the instant electricity discharge directly to the ground through low resistance wires or electrical cables.” Why do you require earthing? In simple words, the main essence is to prevent the peril of electric shock which may result from current flowing through undesired pathways from the ground. More so, it is done to prevent an increase in the potential of a conductor (beyond its planned insulation) in respect to the ground.

Let’s bring it home; earthing protects your building and equipment from serious damages and breakdowns as the quality of power supplies into the building can be significantly corrupted should the earthing be faulty. This is why the job, however simple, requires skillfulness. GAB Electrician has the know-how and required devices to properly plan and skilfully execute this job.

Electrical Fuse Board

What is a fuse board and why should you bother replacing it? You may know a fuse board as an electricity board or a mains fuse box; it is designed to distribute electricity around your house and to offer protection services. The fuse board consists of three main parts: the Main Switch which allows you to switch off power supply to the house. The second is like it: Residual Current Devices (RCD) which is used to disconnect a circuit from power supply in situations of electric fault. The third part is the MCBs or Circuit Breakers which automatically cuts off a circuit when an electrical fault is detected.

You should replace fuse boards for fire protection, electric shock protection, and for additional circuits for more appliances. It should take GAB Electrician a day to replace your fuse board and test it to ensure everything is in fine working condition, although it may take a moment longer should the electric meter be located away from the existing fuse board.
