With the coming of summer, when we start using electrical equipment such as air conditioners, fans, coolers, etc., energy consumption increases exponentially. The emerging “work from home” trend has increased the electrical load used by devices such as laptops, mobile phones and televisions. Increased power consumption may increase the risk of electric shock. According to the National Criminal Records Bureau (NCRB), at least 3,000 people nationwide die each year in electrical accidents during the power season. Therefore, the electrical infrastructure must be synchronized with the growing loads in the room. Unfortunately, people either don’t know or ignore this basic information, often leading to life-threatening accidents. To provide a safer home for our families, we need to equip our homes with devices that act as safety barriers to protect us from the dangers of electricity. Here are 4 safety tips to help our loved ones stay safe this summer.
One of the most underrated devices in the home is the RCCB or ELCB, a vital piece of equipment that prevents electric shock by opening the circuit within a fraction of a second in the event of a current leak. While this device can prevent electric shock and save precious lives, almost 90% of households do not have one. Many state governments/DISCOMs have taken the right steps to enforce the RCCB/ELCB, but this makes it difficult to ensure the necessary installation of the RCCB. Today, however, innovative ELCBs easily provide outlet-level leak protection in the form of plugs or adapters and can be installed with washing machines, air coolers, water heaters (geysers)—virtually all equipment that is more sensitive to water. Interaction between people. VDTs are often referred to as personal protective equipment and are mandatory for every family.
Often older buildings do not have surge protection built into the electrical circuitry. According to the ICA in India, about 35% of short circuits and fires occur in buildings with old electrical circuits, in the absence of a surge protection device in the circuit, frequent power surges can instantly disable all electrical appliances in the house. Surge protectors protect valuable electronic equipment by suppressing transient voltages and bypassing surges to ground.
In modern homes, the use of more and more electrical equipment can lead to electrical overloads. Homes with a wide variety of electrical and electronic equipment require the right mix of switchgear to isolate circuits and protect electrical equipment (and precious human life). Therefore, the installation of circuit breakers (MCB) in junction boxes provides protection against current overloads and short circuits. These circuit breakers have different ratings for different types of loads, so the right quality, the right company, and the right load must be used.
Electrical wires are the “veins and arteries” of our home and should be treated with the same care as any other electrical element in the home. Failure to use electrical wires of the proper rating, quality, and health is the biggest cause of electrical hazards in the home. Usually little attention is paid to it after installation, and it is returned to only when replacement or repair is required. Nearly 13% of accidental fires are caused by short circuits and poor wiring. If a home is over 20 years old, it may not have enough wiring to connect the growing number of appliances in today’s average home, such as computers, wide-screen TVs, video and game players, microwave ovens, water heaters, and air conditioners. . air conditioner. We now have electrical wiring devices that can instantly detect changes in electrical current and control them to avoid accidents. They are better suited to coastal areas and places with high rainfall.
First of all, safety must be ensured. It is always better to use the highest quality electrical equipment than to end up paying for the damage caused by a sudden electrical accident. Just a few electrical modifications to your home can save the lives of loved ones and provide peace of mind.
