What Exactly Is Electrical Grounding?

Grounding prevents appliances in your home from becoming charged due to lightening strikes or other power surges. It directs extra charge away from appliances like your refrigerator by using wiring. Those wires are then led outside and planted into the ground to discharge. Your appliances are literally being connected to the ground outside.

There are several ways to install grounding systems, depending on your home. Wiring in the home, known as branch circuits, should have its own ground located in the cable or conduit.

How Old is Your Home?

Depending on when your home was built, it may or may not have a ground wire. The lack of a grounding wire may have met the minimum safety standards when your home was built, but it may not meet today’s current safety standards.

For this reason, it is always a good idea to have a complete electrical inspection if your home is over 30 years old. You should always consult a licensed Sarasota electrician to verify if your grounding system is current to today’s minimum safety standards.
