Afailure or malfunctionwithin the electrical components of equipment or machinery can cause electrical fires. Electrical fires originate in electric wires, cables, circuit breakers, and within electrical components. Fires start in electrical panels from overloaded circuits or age of the panel. The panel and circuits become overloaded when the distribution of electricity is inadequate. Occasionally, lighting equipment acts as a source of heat that is too close to easily combustible materials.Common causes of electrical fires
In 2018, our global consumption of energy was 62 billion kWh per day. We rely heavily on electricity to power our businesses, homes, and, for a growing number, our cars. Don't assume your electrical systems are functioning properly because they work on a day-to-day basis with no issues. Electrical systems pose an ongoing fire risk. Understanding common causes of electrical fires and following preventive measures to maintain your electrical systems will mitigate your chance of a fire.Poor maintenance
Poor maintenance is the leading cause of electrical fires. Performing regular maintenance on electrical panels will reduce the risk of fire. Maintenance includes removing dirt and dust and inspecting and replacing faulty circuit breakers. Kinks in wiring cause electrical resistance within the wire, which creates heat and could cause an electrical fire.Arcingcan lead to a fire and occurs in electrical panels and enclosures, frayed wires and extension cords, and even in damaged phone chargers.
For 24/7 protection for an electrical panel, an automaticfire suppression systemis the ideal choice. The pneumatic fire detection tubing is routed through the electrical panel and connects to a cylinder that contains the fire suppression agent. In the event of a fire, the tubing will burst and deploy the agent to suppress the fire. For electrical panels, we recommend using aclean agent. The clean agent leaves no residue and is not harmful to people. It is nonconductive and noncorrosive and will not damage the electrical panel.
As a residential homeowner or commercial business owner, electrical fires pose a real threat. Unfortunately, they are a common occurrence. You should keep this in mind when installing or upgrading your electrical system and when performing general maintenance. Taking preventative measures will reduce the risk of a fire in an electrical panel.
