Grounding Rules

Since you don’t want your appliances or yourself to have this situation, a grounding wire is needed to be added to your home. It offers all that electricity the perfect chance of escaping through a wire attached to your home’s electrical system that is submerged securely in the ground, the best reason why it is called “grounding.” Both your home’s electrical box and your home’s outlets need to be connected to this grounding wire to be correctly and safely grounded in your home.
