Burnt Electrical -
Notes and Photos by Able Group Inc.
This page shows examples of electrical over-heating conditions in areas normally going unnoticed. Over heated wiring and electrical components are primarily the results of age or the lack of a good connection. All power usage generates heat in varying measures. A poor connection will multiply that heat many times, which in turn makes the connection worse, which in turn creates more heat. Heat related damages are normally a long time in the making. Burning electrical issues rarely cause a fire because fixtures and electrical enclosures are designed to contain sparks and melted insulation.

K.
Burnt electrical wiring due to damp conditions in areas rarely seen. Burnt wires, electrical fire inside a large wiring splice box due to continued water entry.
