2. What do
the colors of the plastic insulation mean on wires?
They are designed to indicate their use. In Canada, the wires carrying
current at full voltage are usually red,black and blue. Neutral wires
are usually white. Ground wires are usually green or yellow with a green
stripe. Much caution must be applied, because wires are not always hooked
up correctly. Sometimes there are also older houses wired with the “old”
3. Only part
of my home has electricity – what should I do?
If you've lost power in a portion of your home it's likely the result
of one of the following:
You've blown a fuse or tripped breaker
You've broken a connector
There's a faulty wire at one of the service leads to your home.
4. What does
A light fixture has a bulb with a higher wattage than the fixture is designed
for. The bulb’s intense heat can scorch or melt the socket and insulation
on the fixture’s wires, which increases the risk of arcing —
sparks that jump through the air from one wire to another — a chief
cause of electrical fires. Stay
within the wattage limit listed on all light fixtures made since 1985.
For older, unmarked fixtures, use only 60-watt bulbs or smaller.
5. I have aluminum
wiring in my home. What should I do?
You have a type of wiring, used in the 1960s and '70s as a cheap substitute
for copper, that is no longer considered safe. Aluminum corrodes when
in contact with copper, so connections loosen, which can lead to arcing
and fires. If you notice any signs of a problem, have a qualified electrician
determine the cause. DO NOT TRY TO DO IT YOURSELF. You could be electrocuted,
or you could make the problem worse. Signs of electrical system problems include hot-to-the
touch face plates on receptacles or switches;flickering lights; circuits
that don’t work;or the smell of burning plastic at outlets or switches.
6. Can I simply
upgrade my breaker to one with a higher rating, so to keep it from jumping
all the time?
Definitely not! Each breaker in your panel is there for the sole purpose
of protecting the wires that run through that particular line. If, for
example, the wires are a size that need a 15A breaker to protect them,
and you were to switch the breaker to a 20A, you would be causing a potentially
dangerous situation. There would be nothing to protect the wires from
burning up and taking the whole house with them.
