Why Are Electrical Grounds Important?

Electrical grounds are one of the most essential safety components of a home’s electrical system. Why do you need to ground electricity and what does this entail? A ground wire connects the outlets in your home to the electrical panel; this wire is dug into the ground surrounding your home. The soil that surrounds the wire acts as a kind of surge protector. If an excessive amount of electricity flows through the grounded wire the positively charged ions within the wire are attracted to the negatively charged ions found in the surrounding soil. This allows for the excess energy to dissipate into the ground instead of overloading the electrical system, which could create fire hazards and damage home appliances.
