Every house uses electrical supply. Electricity performs multiple functions such as lighting, heating, cooling, using electrically powered appliances, etc. Electricity can be effectively harnessed by using proper wiring, power points, safety devices etc.
Some common electrical aspects we encounter in our daily lives are:
House Wiring/RewiresHouse wiring system is a complex system of carefully designed wiring to fulfill your power needs in a safe manner. The basic electric system in a home consists of a line from the electrical pole to the MCB (Main circuit breaker) panel. From the MCB separate wiring is provided to different rooms, various outlets, light fixture boxes, and various hardwired appliances.
• Different types of house wiring include:
• Wiring for lighting and power distribution;
• Portable and permanently installed appliances;
• Wiring for heating and ventilation
• Telephone wiring
• Wiring for home theatre
• Wiring for computer networks
Additional Power pointsMost old homes have limited power points or socket outlets. Hence, there is a need to install additional powerpoints. Installation can be expensive or cheap depending on the cable run required. It is good to seek the help of an electrician for installation.
Commonly used power points:
Single: These have a single socket.
Weatherproof: These are suitable for outdoor mounting as they are weatherproof.
Double: These powerpoints have two sockets.
Double with a switch: These are power points with additional switches, reducing the clutter on your walls.
USB: These power points have USB ports for charging various gadgets.
Garden Lighting InstallersGarden lighting installers entail the illumination provided in the garden area of your home. The lighting in the garden area needs to be designed according to the flora and landscaping of your garden. Illumination used to beautify the garden area is a blend of dim and bright lights to achieve the desired effect.
Safety SwitchesThe function of a safety switch is to safeguard your home from accidents caused by electricity. It provides protection from fire, electric shock, injury or death by switching off the electric supply when an electrical fault is detected.
Surge DivertersThe function of a surge diverter is to protect electrical devices from spikes in voltage supply. It protects the device by blocking or earthing voltages above the safe threshold level.
SwitchesA switch is a device which makes or breaks an electrical circuit. This is achieved by interrupting the electron flow in the circuit. Switches are binary in nature. They are either completely closed or completely open.
Down LightsThese are lights which are mounted in the ceiling and they throw light downwards in a narrow beam. The illumination from downlights is different from that by traditional lighting.
DimmersThe function of a dimmer is to lower the intensity of light. A dimmer reduces the brightness of a lamp by changing the waveform of the voltage applied.
Ceiling FansA ceiling fan is an electrically powered mechanical fan that circulates air. It is suspended from the ceiling of a room. It has rotating paddles for circulating air.
Electricity is essential for the everyday functioning of our lives. However, it needs to be handled with care. The same electricity which brightens our lives can be hazardous for use. If safety precautions are not followed, it can cause serious accidents and even lead to death. Moreover, electricity is generated using various natural resources. Hence, it should not be wasted.
So, illuminate your lives using electricity wisely.
With the rise in the number of gadgets and appliances, there is an increase in demand for electricity. Older homes not only have to increase the number of connection ports but also update them according to the latest technology.
Internet and Data PointsAn internet point or data point can be defined as a physical infrastructure through which internet service providers exchange Internet traffic between their networks. They are provided in residences by internet service providers to facilitate the use of the internet. The most common ways of data delivery are:
• ADSL service which is coupled with telephone cabling.
• Cable modems
Television PointsThere are two types of television connections in homes. They can be free to air or paid connections. The connection system varies for both these.
In the case of a free to air connection, there are three elements:
• Antenna: It is mounted outdoors at a height.
• Coaxial cable: It is a twin lead cable from the antenna to the television.
• TV outlet: It is an F connector mounted on a face plate. For multiple connections, an RF splitter is used to split the connection.
In the case of a paid connection, there is a digital set top box which comes with a connector known as Belling Lee. Hence, the cable used for connection will have an F connector at one end and a Belling Lee at the other.:
Telephone PointsTelephone wiring is provided in homes from telephone company’s service entrance and different locations within the home.
A domestic telephone socket comprises a master socket provided by the service provider. Additional sockets can be wired off from the main socket.
The latest technology in LED LightingLED lighting or Light emitting diodes used for lighting are energy saving, environment-friendly and long lasting. However, advancements in technology enabled these lights to evolve with better benefits.
Some of these are:
• LED can now communicate with other devices.
• They can be connected to the internet of things.
• Since they do not need to be replaced frequently, they are being used as built-in lighting.
• LEDs are able to work on a wireless system which is RF based.
• Applications of LEDs are increasing.
Hot Water ServicesHot water services are required by most households for various applications. Hot water is needed by many appliances and equipment in a household. It is required for refrigeration, cooking, lighting, etc. Maximum usage of hot water services is in the bathroom.
Types of hot water services used are:
• Gas heating
• Solar heating
• Electrical heating
• Heat pump
Hot water services are one of the major causes for greenhouse gases. Therefore, it is recommended to use a service with the minimum greenhouse effect. It is also a good idea to minimise the usage of hot water services.
As technology advances, we will be exposed to more appliances to ease our lives. But, it is essential to be aware that electricity is not a renewable resource. Hence, it should be used with care.
