Confident that you really know what you’re doing? Be sure to keep these safety tips in mind to avoid hazards during your home wiring project.
1. Power Off
Guarantee the power is off at the breaker prior to starting and use a voltage tester to verify that wires and/or electrical contacts are completely deceased before you start working on them. Make sure everyone at home is aware that electrical work is going on. Tape the circuit breaker into the off position.
2. Be Careful What You Touch
Never touch plumbing or fuel pipes while working with electricity they are often used to ground electrical systems.
3. Use The Correct Tools
Before you begin, ensure you have an idea in place as to what outlets, changes and fixtures will be involved in your project. Make sure you have all the appropriate tools, including but not limited to: needlenose pliers, wire blades, cable & wire stripper, fish & colored tape, volt quality tester, continuity specialist, electric & rightangle drill. You may be able to lease some of this equipment from your local hardware store.
4. Purchase the Right Elements
In case you are installing new receptacles make positive the new ones match the wiring in your home. A AL-CU seal of approval means it can be used on aluminum and water piping wiring. If it is unmarked or there exists a reduce through the AL if should only be used on copper wiring.
5. Add a Junction Package
Never splice wires together and hide them within a wall without a verse box — an accessible junction container should always be used to sign up for wires.
6. Substitute Old Wiring That will Shows Signs Of Damage or Fraying
7. Fix Fuse and Breaker Difficulties
8. Don’t Overload.
Overloaded outlets or extension cords can create a fire risk.

Even though you think you received the project right, one mistake could leave a potential fire hazard lurking in your walls. A reputable electrical contractor understands all areas of home wiring and may be able to wire your home safely in less time than it takes one to learn.
