ELECTRICAL MYTHS – TRUE OR FALSE

Posted on Nov 06, 2014

Electrical Myths-True or False

 

There are many common myths when it comes to electricity. Read the information below and test your knowledge about common electrical myths.

 

1. True or False? “Wood is an Insulator.”

False. Actually, wood is a conductor-but not a good one. The molecules in wood are far apart so it’s hard for electricity to move from one to the next, but the higher the voltage, the easier it becomes. If the wood is wet it becomes a very good conductor, even at low voltage.

 

2. True or False? “Rubber gloves or rubber soled shoes insulate.”

This is true and false. This is true only if they are one hundred percent rubber. Household gloves and shoes are not made of pure rubber. Often, additives are mixed in with the rubber to make them more durable and marketable, making the gloves and shoes conductors.

 

3. True or False? “Live wire will spark when it falls.”

False. A power line only sparks if it falls to the ground and does not make firm contact with the ground or other material. When it makes firm contact it will often make no noise or spark, and will give the impression of being de-energized.

 

4. True or False? “Only high voltage is dangerous.”

False. Voltage is not the amount of electricity in a given spot, but the pressure that pushes electricity along. Amperage (amp) is what can hurt or kill you. It takes less than one quarter of an amp to put a heart into ventricular fibrillation (irregular beating).

 

5. True or False? “Not all power lines are insulated.”

True. Actually, most of outside power lines are not insulated. And, lines that are insulated are exposed to all kinds of weather so you never really know what condition the insulation is in. You should always assume the line is not insulated and not safe to touch.

 

6. True or False? “Tires are NOT electrical insulators.”

True. Tires are conductors, not insulators. You are safe in your vehicle when a live wire falls on it because the path of the electricity will run on the outside of the vehicle, through the tires, and into the ground. As long as we don’t provide the electricity a path to the ground through our body, the electricity will not enter it. You should remain in your vehicle until emergency services arrive and the power is shut off. If you have to get out of your car because of an unsafe situation, jump with both feet together, making sure that you are not touching any part of the vehicle when your feet touch the ground.

3 Key Considerations for Your Commercial Remodel

Posted on Aug 26, 2014

3

1. Clientele: It is vital that property owners consider the type of tenants they intend to attract, and/or keep, before making any changes to the building. Different industries and company cultures require different spaces, and the aesthetics of the building in which they inhabit are an inevitably an extension of who they are as a company.

 

2. Precise Scheduling and Planning: Having clear deadlines and timelines for each stage of the remodel is important when accommodating current, or prospective, occupants, to ensure that the remodeling process does not have a negative impact on their company’s livelihood.

 

3. Quality over Price: Be sure not to allow budgetary concerns persuade you to get involved with unqualified contractors. The cost of reworking or costs associated with a hazard are much more expensive than getting the job done right the first time.

Why Not to Choose the Billboard-Advertised Electrician

Posted on Aug 13, 2014

2Have you ever seen a billboard for an electrician and thought they must be the ones to call for my next job? Marketing is highly effective in attracting new business. However, electrical companies that use big billboards and other large-scale advertisements typically spend lots of money and time on marketing themselves, rather than investing that time in producing quality work that speaks on its own. This results in lower quality work for higher costs, to fund those big billboards. For your next commercial electrical project, choose a company through referral with lower-grade marketing tactics for a more quality work-centric approach.

3 Ways to Prevent Pipe Freezing

Posted on Aug 13, 2014

1

  1. Insulation: The best way to protect your pipes from freezing come wintertime is to keep them properly insulated. Insulation keeps the cold air from infiltrating pipes, so the water inside stays liquefied.
  2. No Power? Drip Water: If your property looses power, always let your sinks run a bit. A slow drip keeps water flowing through piping, preventing ice buildup, which can increase in-pipe pressure and cracking risk.
  3. Heat Tracing Cables: Heat tracing cables maintain a minimum temperature within a building’s pipes, to prevent against freezing and cracking. If your building is at risk for frozen pipes, consider installing heat tracing cables.

Would you like to install heat tracing cables in your next commercial construction project? Trademark Electric offers quality heat tracing cable installation services, to prevent your property’s pipes from freezing.
