How is electricity installed in a house?
Your home’s electrical system plays a significant role in the functioning of our home. From your heating and cooling systems to your home appliances, electrical devices, and more. But how exactly is electricity installed in your home? Let’s take a closer look at how this is done.
Simply put, your home’s electricity enters into its interior through what is known as a service head. This service head is directly connected to underground wires or numerous above-ground power lines. Generally speaking, the service head attached to your home should consist of a neutral wire and two standard 120-volt wires. These are what deliver electricity to your lights and home appliances.
Further, on the outside of your home, you will notice there is an electric meter. This meter is responsible for measuring the amount of electricity that enters into your home. It also measures how much energy you and your family use throughout the year.
On the other hand, there is an electrical service panel, also known as a circuit breaker, that is installed inside your home. This breaker is responsible for supplying electricity to your home’s appliances and outlets. In addition, your electrical service panel is also a safety feature for your home. When one of your circuits is using too much power, it will shut off and cut the power. This prevents the possibility of someone in your family being electrocuted and the chance of an electrical fire occurring.
Grounding is the process used to connect your home’s electrical system to the earth using a thick wire. This grounding method is crucial in protecting you and your family from experiencing an electric shock or electrocution. Essentially, a grounding rod provides a third pathway for running electricity should your electricity experience a short circuit or an overload of power when your appliances are running. In addition, grounding will protect electricians performing work on your electrical system and any devices and equipment connected to it.

How much electricity do I need for my home?
All homes and homeowners are different. Therefore, the amount of electricity you need for your home will vary depending on your lifestyle and the type of home appliances, electrical devices, and features you have installed throughout your home. Because of this, it can be difficult to estimate your home’s electrical intake throughout the year without performing an inspection in person.
As such, if you are concerned about how much electricity you are currently using and whether your home is suited for your energy consumption, we highly recommend that homeowners in the Hamilton, Ontario community book an appointment with a professional electrician as soon as possible. Using too much energy than what your home is able to handle can lead to severe risks, including electrical fires and the possibility of electrocution to occur. Therefore, conducting a maintenance check and repair of your home’s electrical system frequently, especially if you are installing new appliances, is key to ensuring your home is safe for you and your family at all times.
Should you require any electrical assistance, homeowners are urged to book an appointment with us. Electrical work is highly complex and should only ever be performed by a professional who has the required certifications and knowledge of how to complete the project. Without any prior experience, homeowners are at risk of suffering severe bodily harm or death and can put their homes at risk of suffering damage from an electrical fire.

“We had an excellent experience using Boonstra. We needed a whole new furnace and A/C, as our existing was over 20 years old. We first met with Steve the service tech, who was very knowledgeable and helped us to choose what system was suitable for our house. They scheduled the install very quickly. The installers, Daniel & Michael, were friendly and skilled. They worked diligently to get the job done as quickly as possible. They protected all our surfaces and left the site perfectly clean. The whole system comes with a 10 year parts a labour warranty. If you want the job done properly, fast, and efficient, call Boonstra.“
“Starting with Salesperson Mike, and ending with tech installation team, Gareth and Lucas, the entire project was seamless. No pressure sale with genuine care and expert advice, offering next day install at a fair price. Promptly on Sunday morning, Gareth and Lucas showed up, and didn’t stop until the install was complete. Friendly, knowledgeable, considerate and professional, all attributes indicative of Boonstra. System works great and I am extremely pleased with the service, price and overall experience.“
