The Wonder That Is Electricity!


Unless you or, somebody you know has been subject to the dangers of being electrocuted, it probably isn’t something that you have given any thought to on a day-to-day basis. There may however, come a time when you wish to undergo some household maintenance or renovation and, unless you have a very newly built home the chances are your electrics might not be installed in an orderly fashion. Nor will you have any idea of where any additional wiring loops go. So how do you reduce your chances of getting zapped?  (Also Know About How To Enhance Your Vehicle’s Electrical Safety And Security)

What Exactly Is Electricity?

Quite literally, as any Level 2 Electrician in Sutherland Shire will be sure to confirm, everything around us is powered by or uses electricity to operate. The very basis of electricity and, where it gets its roots is also closer than you might think…. Both people’s and animals’ bodies move in conjunction with electrical pulses that are created when they want to move! Furthermore, because brains pretty much run on electrical power, even thoughts can be electric! 

Electricity truly is one of the most amazing of nature’s creations, giving us things like lightning in thunderstorms, and the ability to power electrical machines including bikes, computers, air conditioners, lights, soldering irons, and mobile phones. Electricity is such a massive part of human life that it would be extremely hard to go a day without coming into contact with or avoid using something that is powered by electricity. It really is that much of an integral part of each and every person’s day-to-day life that it’s hard to imagine a world without it! 

With that said, if you’ve ever experienced a power cut, you’d be one in a million if you didn’t have a mini panic attack whilst wondering what to do next. (Excited to know about Facts You Need To Know About Electrical Fires & Safety)

How Could You Go Without?

If a power cut does take place, most people automatically think of the things that they use the most, things such as the TV, the computer/laptop and or stereo. It normally takes a little while for it to sink in just how important electricity is, especially if you’ve just filled your freezer up with goodies. Sadly, if the outage lasts some time and, unless there is some kind of backup power in your living area then your frozen goods will surely be unfrozen before too long!

Another afterthought tends to be something like the washing machine/dryer because, it’s not until something like a power cut takes place that the penny drops, no power no clothes and, if you were halfway through a wash, forget getting your clothes back until the power returns!

How Can Something So Dangerous Be So Safe?

It’s an interesting quandary and a fair one at that, certainly considering how deadly electricity is. It’s nothing short of a miracle that more people aren’t electrocuted as they carry out their day-to-day routines. 

Stay Safe

Most people have been educated well enough to stay well clear of live electricity, however, there are a handful that continue to ignore its tremendous power. For those people, be sure to stay away from train tracks, water and electricity at the same time meaning no diving contests in the middle of a storm! (Interesting Topics For You Reason To Hire A Qualified And Experienced Electrician)
