Why Quality Insulation Is Essential For House Wiring
Total Articles: 3
Our lives transform keeping pace with the changing technology. Our interests, preferences and perception change all with time. Though things goes haywire sometimes in life, the one factor that remains immortal to change is our affection towards our homes. A thought that each one of us can relate to is 'Home is where the heart is'. Its a feeling that continues to survive against all odds. While we strive endlessly to find a home and modify it as per our tastes, we pay little attention to how safe our home is. Safety and comfort should be the two integral aspects of every home. A house will only be called a home, when it fully commits to these factors. Though we pay little attention to the physical attributes of our homes and the tangible requirements, we often tend to ignore the intangible benefits we could achieve with the implementation of quality house wiring.
Just like our enormous planet Earth requires its atmosphere for protection against the harsh UV rays of the sun, imagine how much insulation the electrical cables and wires used in your homes would require to function without any hindrance. Insulation is important, especially when it comes to wires. The quality of insulation used in your homes should not be compromised, as it directly impacts the health of your homes. Most modern residential areas are closely knit and are less ventilated, compared to independent homes. This increases the chances of fire, accidents and electrocution as the electrical units are exposed to humidity and heat. When quality insulation is used both for the house as well as for the electrical utility outlets, a stable temperature is maintained that is favorable for the wires.
Quality house wiring and insulation forms the pre-requisite of every modern home. The wiring that we use in our homes should meet a variety of factors, apart from meeting up with the requirements. The gauge size of the wire, the insulation used, the conductor and its size, and its sheath, should match the amount of electricity supplied through the outlet. The abbreviations used in the sheath of the cables suggests the tensile strength or the capacity of the wires. While THWN electrical cables are thermoplastic heat and moisture resistant nylon-coated wires, the THHN wires are thermoplastic high heat resistant nylon-coated wires.
While the heat resisting capacity of wires that have 'H' inscribed on them can sustain upto 167°F, the ones that have 'HH' inscribed on them can bear upto 194°F. The letter 'W' stands for water resistance, and 'N' stands for the nylon coating that makes the wires resistant to gasoline and oil. Moreover, the colour used in the sheath of the wire also signifies its purpose. Improper insulation will not only waste electricity and increase your power bills, but will also put your life at risk. Hence, always seek the assistance of an electrical expert to evaluate your homes and implement the necessary measures. Using quality electrical cables with sufficient insulation will keep your homes safe and secure.
