Electrical Grounding

Electrical Information

Most homeowners know grounding as the third prong on your electrical devices and outlets designed to protect your electric appliances and electronics. Grounding is a topic that is much more simple than it appears to be. Electrical “ground” refers to the ground that we walk on, the soil, the earth. In fact, European countries refer to “electrical grounding” as “electrical earthing.” The earth makes a fantastic reference point for our electrical system, because of its constant electrical potential.

The following websites can explain the science behind electrical grounding:

For homeowners, electrical grounding is very important to ensure that you do not receive stray voltage spikes in your home which can harm your sensitive electronic equipment. As electricians, we will install a proper grounding system as part of your electrical service to protect your home and your electronics from electrical hazards.
