Electrical Repairs – Did you Know
The Yale School of the Environment has found, American homes today, consume the same amount of electricity as in the 1970s despite enormous improvements in energy efficiency. A research story by the Washington Post attributes this energy phenomenon to the increase in number of electric appliances, and personal electronics in modern homes. Energy intensive cooking appliances, and comfort systems use nearly half of the electricity than older equipment from decades ago. However, nearly all of those energy savings have been offset by increases in the quantity of in home electric appliances and devices. The United Kingdom’s Energy Saving Trust, found the number of electrical appliances in a typical home have tripled since the 1970s. For existing homes, older wiring may not be adequate for modern power needs. The change in electrical demand from a few high powered 240-volt circuits, to more electrical load being shifted to lower power 120-volt circuits, poses some risk for existing residential wiring and fixture infrastructure. Generally, older homes contain fewer electric circuits in total, and are often supplied with lower amperage service. By adding more devices to an existing homes electrical circuit, an overload could result, tripping circuit breakers and fuses, or risking an electrical fire from overheating. Even if an appliance is more energy efficient, more devices on a single circuit increase the total real power demand, through an additive effect.
All electrical wire is rated for a maximum safe operating current. Ampacity ratings are effectively determined by heat dissipation, how well wire insulation gets rid of heat given the amount of current flowing through the wire, and the conditions of use. More electric appliances connected to a single circuit increases amperes and therefore heat which can damage conductors. This is particularly acute in older homes with fixed wiring infrastructure. The outcome of many home fire investigations are recommended changes to the National Electric Code (NEC), or development of safer electrical equipment. To deliver better protected homes and prevent overloads, the NEC specifies the location and minimum number of receptacles per room, the minimum number of circuits for certain pieces of equipment, the wiring methods and type of material that may be installed. As the nation transitions more transportation and home heating and water heating from gas to electricity, power demand and energy intensity of homes will increase, necessitating wiring upgrades, additions, and modifications.
