What does electricity sound like? Is it possible to hear electricity? Ever wondered what is that indistinct humming sound coming from your electrical appliance? People with a sensitive hearing report that they can “hear” or even felt electricity in devices. Ever noticed overhead fluorescent lights or high-voltage power lines emitting a faint buzz.
Humming electricity sounds are all around us at all times. The incessant buzzing noise even has its own name: “mains hum.”
Did you know that the humming noise we hear is the by-product of electricity which occurs when the alternating current (AC) flows through an appliance or electrical panel. Usually, electrical appliances that run in high voltage will produce more audible sound than the ones running on lower voltage but in the case of low voltage appliance only people with sensitive hearing or when the appliance has some issues that need to be fixed.
Have you experienced an interruption while watching TV? A burst of static interrupting your good TV time is also a cause of electrical noise. Interference such in appliances like hair dryers or power drills sometimes interferes with your television when both are being used at the same time. Don’t worry, to protect your appliances companies have your sensitive electronic devices connected to surge protectors and power conditioners can greatly reduce this phenomenon and keep your devices functioning properly.
So hearing electricity is quite normal, right? No, not always! The low, steady humming or buzzing in household appliances or devices doesn’t pose any hazard to nearby people but it is wise to know when to call in the professionals to take a look. If any electrical appliances at your home or in the office are making sounds louder than usual, or you hear crackling, sizzling, or come across other unusual noises, unplug the device immediately and have it inspected by a professional before further use.
Next is the circuit breaker panel, always pay special attention to your circuit breaker panel if you hear a quiet, steady hum that can only be heard when you are in close proximity is considered normal while loud buzzing, sizzling, or sparking indicates damaged wire or circuit breaker. Never try to fix the problem yourself as it is hazardous to you and your surrounding. Always choose the right and safe way to electrical problems and promptly call a professional electrical contractors to investigate the issue and fix the problem!
When it comes to electricity and expensive electrical devices, ignorance is never bliss. A lot of danger such as electrocution, fire breakout lies in damaged electrical wires, and attempting to fix faulty appliances on your own may void your warranty.
