OC: The Components of Electrical Systems

For most, living in a home without electricity, or another power source, is unimaginable. In such a house, all of the appliances that make living more convenient would be useless. This house has no lights at the push of a button or flip of a switch; no refrigerator to keep food and drinks cool; and no radio, television, or computer.
Because so much of the home is affected by electricity, the home inspector must have a basic understanding of electricity. As always, safety is of paramount importance when dealing with this potentially dangerous form of power.
