Five Star Mister Sparky Electrical Grounding In Richmond, VA
Grounding Updates Keep Your Electrical System Safe
A properly grounded electrical ground helps prevent electrical shocks and fires. That’s why Five Star Mister Sparky Electrical ensures your system is connected to a ground that reduces voltage down to zero. Proper electrical grounding provides added security and peace of mind if an electrical short occurs.
Older buildings in Richmond, especially those built 20 years ago, are prone to grounding issues. If you often hear a low buzzing sound of electrical current or feel small shocks when touching metal like your pipes or other appliances, this is a warning signal that you may have grounding problems. Count on Mister Sparky Electrical to troubleshoot and correct this critical issue promptly.
Importance of Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters (GFCI)
Water and electricity don’t mix. Whether in the kitchen, bathroom, or other areas on your property with a water source, ensure that you have a ground fault circuit interrupter or GFCI installed in your outlets by Five Star Mister Sparky Electrical. Similar to your circuit breaker, a GFCI outlet stops or trips the flow of power as soon as it senses any abnormality.
GFCI outlets installed by Five Star Mister Sparky offer many advantages, including:
- Protect you from shocks and electrocution
- Prevents electrical fires
- Protects your electrical appliances from surge damage
Contact our Richmond electricians right away if your home or business is not outfitted with ground fault circuit interrupters. Five Star Mister Sparky Electrical can provide a thorough inspection and pinpoint the different areas requiring GFCI for your safety.
