How Does your Electricity Flow?

Power or Electrical Power

Electrical power is defined as voltage times amperage or VA. Power is also defined as the potenial in the system to produce or create motion for motors, heat for heaters, and light for lamps or bulbs. Power is measured by the rate at which electrical energy is converted to one of these forms. Every day your home uses power to run motorized appliances, heaters, and lighting. As the size of your home increases, you may mimic the words of Tim, The Tool Man, Taylor, “It needs more power!” and an electrical upgrade may be in order.

I hope this helps to explain some of the terms you may have to deal with while dealing with electricity. Once you understand the terms and know a little bit more about electricity, it isn’t such a mysterious thing afterall.
