Grounding and Bonding in Philadelphia Homes & Businesses
Grounding and bonding are some of the most misunderstood concepts of electricity that are still integral to the safety of a home or business. While each are different, they both serve to prevent electrocution and fires.
Bonding is the act of connecting materials capable of conducting electricity, so that all carry the same electrical potential. This greatly reduces or removes the risk of electrocution since energy can not build up in one object and not another.
Grounding means connecting a conductive part of equipment to the earth, in order to provide a return path from the machine to the power source, and prevent power overload caused by a surge.
Both measures are important in the safety and effectiveness of a building’s electrical system, and it takes a licensed and trained electrician to be able to perform an inspection for proper grounding and bonding, as well as bring you up to code.
