Some years back, smart home automation was considered a luxury for the rich. But today, almost every home has at least one smart home automation system. As you head into the future, you can be sure that having a smart home will almost be a necessity. If you haven't made the switch to a smart home, here are some things you're missing. The Safety of Automated Door Locks Have you ever arrived in the office only to begin wondering if you locked your home front door?
Most people are, rightly, a little bit scared of electrical problems that their home may have. After all, unlike issues with your plumbing where you may get a bit wet, electrical problems can and do injure and sometimes even kill people if you are not careful. That is why it always pays to go above and beyond to make sure that you call a professional electrician, no matter how small a problem seems to be.
A good number of people don't know much about their electrical system. Perhaps this is the reason why some electrical fire accidents occur. While some fires are due to poor wiring, some are caused by the homeowner's mistakes, either knowingly or unknowingly. An example is when you overload your sockets. As a homeowner, it is paramount to learn the causes of electrical fires so you can take the necessary preventative measures.
Jonathon here. I am currently completing my electrical apprenticeship and I have to say, it has been a challenge. Before I started, I didn’t realise that there was so much involved in wiring a house or building. Safety, efficiency, aesthetics and costs all have to be taken into account. My boss is so patient. One customer asked us to leave electrical wires exposed because he wanted an “industrial effect”. My boss explained that it would be illegal and they compromised. I have really learnt that electrical installation is one area in which people should not take short-cuts or undertake home handiwork. This blog should help you to gain a little more insight into electrical installation and its intricacies. I hope you find it enlightening. Thank you for stumbling into my corner of the blogosphere.
