The electrical installation in my house… what do I need to know for the protection of my children?
Everyday gestures such as plugging in the tablet to charge, turning on a light or opening the freezer to get an ice cream… Would you let your children do it, what danger are they in, how are we protected?
The electrical installation in Valencia or Spain of our house, premises, industrial premises or warehouse, no matter what, is one of the most important and most dangerous elements that we use every day without realising it, and for this reason it must be made and designed by professionals.
In an electrical installation of any home, located in Spain, Valencia or anywhere in a developed country, we should find basic electrical protection elements.
Check that your house has the electrical protection elements!
To know how the electrical installation protects us, let’s give a simple example:
If we follow the wire of the lamp that your child lights to do his homework, we can find the elements that make up the electrical installation and that protect us.
If we follow the cable of the lamp that your child lights up to do his homework, we can find the elements that make up the electrical installation and that protect us.
First of all we find the wire, if the wire, the wire protects us! a quality wire with the right thickness already starts to protect us, because if it had a too small diameter it would catch fire due to the overheating produced by the electric current when passing through.
Following that same wire we could find a fuse, which is the next element of protection. And what is a fuse? Well, a smaller wire, which is insulated, and before the wire of the electrical installation we are touching burns out the fuse, when it burns out, it cuts off the passage of electrical current and therefore no longer produces a possible FIRE!
When we connect the lamp cable to any socket in our house, we are joining two wires together. But the cable of the electrical installation that is hidden behind the wall should be “fatter”, so that it can support the passage of the electrical current that supplies our electrical installation to different lamps or devices that may be connected at the same time.
