When you walk into a dark room and turn on a light, you probably don’t spend much time thinking about how your electricity works. But by gaining a better understanding of it, you can improve the way you use your residential electrical system. Watch this video to see how electricity turns on your lights in Tampa as well as all of your other items that require power.

Electricity is created long before it actually reaches your residential electrical system. Coal, natural gas, and other energy sources are used to create the electricity that is eventually sent to homeowners. This electricity is then carried to individual communities through the use of power lines and utility poles. Once the electricity reaches your home, your electrical panel then distributes it throughout your house so that you can use it to keep your lights, appliances, and more turned on. If you have any problems or questions regarding your home’s electrical system, contact a licensed electrician in Tampa.
