5 repair you should never do yourself

Electrical shock is serious. It can make your skeleton shine in a flash of light, after. Or maybe that is just from the cartoons. In the actual world, a fantastic zap is far less cool, even though it's theoretically possible for the hair to smoke. So what is the best way to stop a life-threatening jolt? Call an electrician, naturally. If you do not like that program, at least do anything you can to prevent the subsequent no-nos, and understand that this isn't a complete list.

5 repair you should never do yourself

Electrical shock is serious. It can make your skeleton shine in a flash of light, after. Or maybe that is just from the cartoons. In the actual world, a fantastic zap is far less cool, even though it's theoretically possible for the hair to smoke. So what is the best way to stop a life-threatening jolt? Call an electrician, naturally. If you do not like that program, at least do anything you can to prevent the subsequent no-nos, and understand that this isn't a complete list.

1. Mess with the support lugs at a breaker box

To begin with, if you do not know what support lugs are, you should not be doing anything on your breaker box (support panel) except resetting tripped breakers... if that. If you happen to know that the lugs are the huge screw terminals or posts procuring the service cables, you also need to know that they are always hot (energized), even after you shut off the primary breakers. You should stay away from the cables attached to the lugs.

2. This is just another one for the"do not even think of it" category. Because this is part of your property, you may be tempted to vertical the pole if it is leaning or tighten a bolt here and there.

3. Do some wiring with the energy on

If you are a reader of builders' magazines, you have certainly seen photos of a person doing something harmful without the recommended protective equipment, as well as the caption: "Do not do what this man's doing." The point is, simply because electricians occasionally work with hot wires does not mean it is safe for you to do it. It is not safe for them.

4. Repair appliances

Appliances are secure as long as you switch off the power or pull the plug? It's a system that stores power to help enhance the startup (and other purposes ) on some appliances, especially large ones such as air conditioning units. Cutting the power to the appliance does not discharge the capacitors, but a metallic tool touching the contacts certainly will. Yow.

5. Tinker with electrical (or hybrid) cars

On the heels of this year's auto show--and the new electric vehicles--bear in mind that the electrical systems in both hybrid and plug cars are not just complicated beyond your wildest nightmares, they are also very dangerous if you do not know what you are doing.
