You may have heard these terms used before and wondered in amazement about the glamorous lifestyle of a qualified electrician in Sleaford! But what actually is electrical earthing and bonding?
Before we start, the first thing to mention is the huge importance of the electrical and bonding arrangements. They are a highly essential safety element in your home. If you are having any additions or alterations made to an electrical installation, they are one of the things that your electrician must check, as the safety of the work carried out depends on them.
Earthing is essentially used to protect you from an electric shock. If there is a fault with an electrical installation or appliance, it could become live. If you then touch a live metal part (for example the metal case on a washing machine, cooker or fridge/freezer), you could get a nasty shock. This is because the electricity is using your body as a path from the live part to the earth part.
