ELECTRICAL RESIDENTIAL INSULATION RESISTANCE MEGGER TESTING SERVICES!

What Is An Electrical Residential Insulation Resistance MEGGER TEST?

          Over eighty percent of electrical testing and maintenance involves evaluating the insulation integrity of the electrical wire conductors.  According to the American National Standards Institute, National Fire Protection Association 70 (ANSI/NFPA 70), and the National Electric Code (NEC), every home electrical wire cable is to be carefully wrapped and protected by some type of nonmetallic insulation that has a high resistance to the electrical current flow of a specified voltage rating.  The most commonly used home electrical wiring is Type NM-B nonmetallic-sheathed cable, referred to by the electrical industry as “Romex”.  Type NM cable is in accordance with the National Electric Code under the product category “Nonmetallic-sheathed Cable” (PWVX).  The Electrical Residential Insulation Resistance (IR) Test, also known throughout the electrical industry as the MEGGER TEST.  This test is an on-spot electrical insulation test in which we evaluate and inspect the integrity of the thermoplastic insulation on each and every one of the nonmetallic-sheathed cables’ (branch circuits) electrical wire conductors throughout the entire home or residence from the main electrical distribution panel.  Once completed, the Electrical Residential INSULATION RESISTANCE MEGGER TESTING SERVICE results will determine if the insulation on the electrical wire conductors are safe to continue normal use in the home according to the National Electric Code (NEC). Always keep in mind that when it comes to Electrical Residential Insulation Resistance MEGGER TESTING SERVICES, Peoples Choice Electric is among the leading electrical contractors throughout the United States.

PEOPLES CHOICE ELECTRIC “THREE POINT” ELECTRICAL RESIDENTIAL INSULATION RESISTANCE MEGGER TESTING SERVICE PROCEDURES!

Visual and Physical Inspection of Main Distribution Panel & Home Electrical Status

In the preliminary sector of the “Three Point” Electrical Residential Insulation Resistance MEGGER TESTING SERVICE, we perform a very intense visual and physical inspection of every switch and outlet receptacles inside and outside of the home, as well as the main electrical distribution panel. The visual and physical inspection allows us to locate visual evidence of any type of damages due to a possible power surge entering the homes’ electrical system.  The damages would include, but not limited to, arcing, burning, and/or charring.

Circuit Testing of each Branch Circuit

In the subsequent sector of the “Three Point” Electrical Residential INSULATION RESISTANCE MEGGER TESTING SERVICE , we apply a highly regulated amount of stabilized DC voltage across a dielectric to each branch circuits’ electrical wire conductor.  Once the DC voltage is applied, a resistance measurement is then calculated using “Ohm’s Law” to evaluate the integrity of the nonmetallic insulation of the electrical wire conductor.  A high level of resistance signifies there is very little current escaping through the thermoplastic insulation. On the other hand, a low level of resistance indicates that a substantial amount of current may be leaking through and along the nonmetallic insulation.  With that being said, anytime there is a lack of integrity with the insulation of an electrical wire conductor, it results in current loss which will eventually cause your electrical system to perform insufficiently.    

Visual and Physical Investigation of inadequate readings

During the final phase of the Electrical Residential Insulation Resistance MEGGER TESTING SERVICE, a visual and physical investigation is often required on some branch circuits when the initial readings are low.   During the investigation, we find that most of the time a low initial reading is due to, but not limited to, loose wire connections and splices, ceiling fan motors, bulbs, night lights, outlet plug-ins, or electrical appliances or devices plugged into a hidden receptacle.

LIGHTNING STRIKES HOME/PROPERTY

What Happens to The Electrical System When Lightning Strikes Your Home/Property?

         According the Insurance Information Institute (III), in 2016 there were over 100,000 homeowners’ insurance claims filed due to lightning damage throughout the United States. This representation does not include those that were uninsured and those that were unaware of the damage, and therefore did not file a claim.  IMPORTANT: If at any moment your home or property has just been struck by lightning, get out and immediately call the Fire Departmentas It is very common for fires to ignite within the attic and walls of the home after a lightning strike.  Considering the temperature of lightning at 90,032°F, which is 9 times hotter than the surface of the sun, lightning strikes create a huge power surge that can cause significant amounts of damage to electrical wiring, electronics, and electrical equipment as it travels through your homes electrical system.   It is imperative to know that not all lightning strike damages may be evident to the naked eye as the damaged areas may be hidden within the walls and attic of the home.  It is a common, yet costly misconception that if your home or property has been struck by lightning, you should have all the electrical wiring replaced.  This assumption is far from the truth. There are electrical tests that have been put in place to evaluate and determine the need to repair or replace any of the electrical wiring conductors in the home or residence.  Therefore, it is very important to hire an experienced qualified Electrical Residential Insulation Resistance MEGGER TESTING SERVICES company such as Peoples Choice Electric to perform a “Three Point” Electrical Residential Insulation Resistance MEGGER TEST to determine the extent of the damages to the insulation on the electrical wire conductors. In the event of a lightning strike, give us a call by dialing (9739)-MEGGER or (973) 963-4437.  Under certain circumstances, most homeowners’ insurance companies cover Electrical Residential INSULATION RESISTANCE MEGGER TESTING SERVICES due to lightning striking your home or property. 

WHAT IS AN ELECTRICAL POWER SURGE

How Can an Electrical Power Surge Cause Damage to Your Home Electrical System?

          According to the National Electric Code (NEC), the electrical wires in homes should be rated for at least 6oo volts of electrical current. In the event of an electrical power surge, the voltage will be altered.  An electrical power surge is a sudden burst of voltage in the electrical current of your homes’ electrical system that is extremely higher than the regulated amount of 600 volts.  According to the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), power surges are classified into two categories, Internal Power Surges and External Power Surges.  Over half of power surges in the home are from internal forces.  They take place throughout the day, typically from electronic equipment, devices and appliances during start up and shut down periods, diverting electricity to and from other electrical equipment, appliances and devices.  Internal power surges may be very damaging to sensitive electrical equipment, appliances, and devices, but the damages are not detrimental to your home’s electrical system.  On the other hand, external power surges can cause an incredible amount of damage to your home’s electrical system, frying out electrical circuits, melting and burning the electrical wire conductors and insulation.  There are many reasons why your home may experience an external power surge.  External power surges are typically caused by lightning striking your home, property, or utility power lines, power grid switching at the electric utility company, overheated transformers, broken utility power lines, tree limbs coming into contact with the utility power line, or a small animal entering a transformer.  If your home has experienced an external power surge, it is imperative to hire an experienced qualified Electrical Residential Insulation Resistance MEGGER TESTING SERVICE COMPANY such as Peoples Choice Electric to perform a “Three Point” Electrical Residential Insulation Resistance MEGGER TESTING SERVICES to determine the extent of the damages to the insulation on the electrical wire conductors, if any at all.  For a free consultation, contact Peoples Choice Electric at (9739)-MEGGER or (973) 963-4437.

FIRE DAMAGED HOME/PROPERTY

How Can a Fire to Your Home/Property Cause Damage to your Home Electrical System?

          Just about every home in the United States contains an electrical wiring system.  Therefore, if any section of the property containing electrical wiring has been subjected to fire damage, more than likely the electrical system may have been compromised.  During combustion, fire can take some pretty unusual paths as it spreads across the internal and external structure of the home.  Just as the copper wire in the home’s electrical system is a great conductor of electricity, it is also a great conductor of heat as well. With that being said, a great deal of heat damage to the electrical wire insulation can extend deep into the walls and ceilings of the home.  It is very possible the heat could have caused damage to the electrical wire insulation in areas of the property where there is very little to no sign of fire damage from the surface.    For this significant reason, before you move forward with restoration and repairs, it is critical to consult an experienced qualified Electrical Residential Insulation Resistance MEGGER TESTING SERVICE Company such as Peoples Choice Electric to perform a “Three Point” Electrical Residential Insulation Resistance MEGGER TESTING SERVICE to determine if there is any damage to the insulation on the electrical wire conductors.  Keep in mind that some segments of the insulation on the electrical wire conductor may be damaged due to the water exposure from firefighting.  If you or any agency suspects that fire has damaged your home electrical system, contact us   by dialing (9739)-MEGGER or (973) 963-4437.

WATER EXPOSED ELECTRICAL WIRING

What to Do If Your Home’s Electrical System Wire Cables Become Exposed to Water?

          Many homeowners are not aware of the possible damages and dangers they may face as a result of their home’s electrical wire cables being exposed to water.  Water exposure to an electrical wire cable can degrade the insulation and possibly corrode the conductors.  Section 334.10(A)(1) of the National Electric Code (NEC) states that PVC insulated Type NM nonmetallic-sheathed electrical wire cable (used in most homes) shall be permitted for use in generally dry locations.  Article 100 of that same code states that “dry location” is a location that is normally not exposed to dampness or wetness.  That location applies to the inside of the walls of almost every American home.  There are uncontrollable instances where your home’s electrical wire cables may become exposed to water.  All electrical wire cable conductors with PVC insulation and jackets can handle being immersed in clean water free of harsh chemicals for a very short period of time without undergoing any damages, as long as the ends have not been immersed and the wires are not damaged.  The National Electric Code (NEC) does not prohibit the temporary exposure to water as long as the ends of the electrical wire cable conductors have not been exposed, the wire not damaged, a dry out period has been attained and an Electrical Residential Insulation Resistance MEGGER TESTING SERVICE has been performed.  For example, a home building may experience rainfall during the construction period, a pipe may leak or burst within the walls or ceiling, or the home may experience water exposure from firefighting, and water may come in contact with the outer jacket layer of the nonmetallic-sheathed cable.   According to the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA), all electrical wire cable conductors that have been listed for dry locations only, may become an electrical shock hazard once reenergized after water exposure.  Therefore, it is necessary that you contact Peoples Choice Electric to perform a “Three Point” Electrical Residential INSULATION RESISTANCE MEGGER TESTING SERVICE to determine the extent of the water damages to the insulation on the electrical wire conductors.

WHY YOU SHOULD HAVE AN ELECTRICAL RESIDENTIAL INSULATION RESISTANCE MEGGER TEST PERFORMED ON YOUR HOME?

An Electrical  Residential Insulation Resistance MEGGER TESTING SERVICE may save your life!

          It is  imperative to understand that as soon as electrical insulation is made, it begins to age through a process called deterioration.  Therefore, Peoples Choice Electric along with top electrical engineers across the globe, respect and understand the importance of having the proper Electrical Residential Insulation Resistance MEGGER TESTING SERVICES performed on your home periodically as a measure of preventative maintenance.  This is an absolute way to monitor the progression of deterioration to the insulation of the electrical wire conductors in your home.  As deterioration occurs, the performance of the electrical insulation begins to decline which in time will lead to a lack of integrity.   Once electrical wire insulation loses its integrity, electrical currents can leak out causing the outer parts of the wire to become conductive leading to a home electrical fire.  According to the United States Fire Administration (USFA), fire departments respond to approximately 26,000 home electrical fires each year.   As a result of home electrical fires, about 280 people lose their lives, 1,125 are injured, and about $1.1 billion occurs in property losses.  Now you may have a better understanding on the importance of having a company such as Peoples Choice Electric to perform a “Three Point” Electrical Residential INSULATION RESISTANCE MEGGER TESTING SERVICE on your home.
