What Is a Single Bond Connection?

Among the services that your residential electrician near Columbus can offer is the proper bonding and grounding of your home’s corrugated stainless steel tubing (CSST) gas system. Having a properly bonded and grounded CSST system is important because this may reduce the risk of damage and electrical fires caused by lightning strikes.


Bonding is a practice that is typically used to reduce the risk of electrical shock for people, and in the case of a CSST system, it is used to both help prevent shock and protect the system from the dangerous electrical surges that can be caused by nearby lightning strikes. For single-family homes, a single bond connection is typically used for this purpose. In this way, a single bond connection can help reduce the risk of fire and gas leaks for your home. If you're unsure whether your home has a CSST system or if it is properly grounded and bonded, then speak with an electrician to schedule an inspection for your home.
