Hi, everyone! Today we're talking about a new package Gloudeman Electric offers called the Home
Safety Test Package. This package consists of two tests which use highly sophisticated electrical equipment. These two tests will give us an idea of how safe your home's electrical system is, and what can be modified or replaced to improve the electrical integrity throughout your home.
1. Circuit Analysis: During our circuit analysis, we use a sophisticated plug-in tester that analyzes outlet circuit wiring conditions and alerts Andrew to conditions that are potentially hazardous or detrimental to power quality. It can detect circuit and wiring problems such as poor ground impedance, false grounds, missing ground fault protection, low voltage availability under load, and high ground-to-neutral voltage. This is important preventative maintenance.
2. Ground Rod Test: We use another computer device that induces a voltage on the homeowner's ground rod (rod that is outside your home, which diverts stray voltage from harming your system, into the ground) and reads the resistance to ground. What we are looking for is a low-resistance path to ground, so that the voltage has a safe path back to the transformer. Having a low-resistance path to ground prevents shocking hazard, and lessens harm from surge (especially when paired with a surge protection unit) and lightning strikes. The ground rod is one of the most important parts of your home's electrical system.
Here's an example of a burning receptacle that can be detected through our Home Safety Test.
