Proper grounding is one of the most important parts of your electrical system. The ground wire is an additional path for electrical current to return safely to the ground without danger to anyone during a short circuit. Without a ground present, metal appliances or objects have the potential to carry electrical current allowing whoever touches them to be at risk for an electrical shock. A properly grounded system is not only for safety but also helps reduce the amount of electrical noise certain electronics, motors, or appliances cause on your electrical system which is a major cause of hum or interference on audio or video equipment. In our area, the most common type of grounding is by ground rods or a grounding electrodes. It is now recommended that you install two ground rods to achieve you correct grounding potential.
