Host: Randal G. Winter of Randal G. Winter Construction Inc.
Topic: Grounding and bonding your electricity and light switches.
Home 411 – October 23, 2013
Jeff Saufley of Saufley Electric came on the show to talk about grounding and bonding the electricity in your home.
The ground wire is an additional path for electrical current to return safely to ground without danger to anyone in the event of a short circuit.
According to Wikipedia electrical bonding is the practice of intentionally electrically connecting all exposed metallic items not designed to carry electricity in a room or building as protection from electric shock. If a failure of electrical insulation occurs, all bonded metal objects in the room will have substantially the same electrical potential, so that an occupant of the room cannot touch two objects with significantly different potentials. Even if the connection to a distant earth ground is lost, the occupant will be protected from dangerous potential differences.
Jeff Saufley gave tips on how to keep your home safe and also talks about the different types of dimmers and switches for your lights. He does suggest have dimmers on your light switches because you could save money and energy.
Jeff Brown, from NV Landscape, also came on the show to talk about how to know what to grow in what season.
There are certain factors that need to be taken into account when you are planting different things. Be sure to listen to the whole podcast to get all of these helpful garden tips.
