Why Megger Tests Are Needed?

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.
