Confident that you know very well what you’re doing? Be sure to keep these protection tips in mind to avoid hazards during your home wiring project.
1. Power Off
Make sure the energy is off at the breaker prior to starting and use a voltage tester to verify that cables and/or electrical connections are completely deceased before you start working on them. Make sure everyone in your house is aware that electrical work is going on. Tape the routine breaker into the off position.
2. Be Careful What You Touch
Never touch plumbing or gasoline pipes while dealing with electricity they are often used to ground electrical systems.
3. Use The Proper Tools
Before you begin, be sure you have a strategy in place as to what outlets, buttons and fixtures will be involved in your project. Help to make sure you have all the appropriate tools, including but not limited to: needlenose pliers, wire blades, cable & wire stripper, fish & colored tape, voltage tester, continuity specialist, electric & rightangle drill. You may be in a position to hire some of this equipment from your neighborhood hardware store.
4. Buy The Right Parts
In case you are installing new receptacles make sure the new ones match the wiring in your home. A AL-CU seal of approval means you can use it on aluminum and water piping wiring. If it is unmarked or there exists a slash through the AL if should only be used on copper wiring.
5. Add a Junction Box
Never splice wires together and conceal them within a wall without a passageway box — an accessible junction box should always be used to join wires.
6. Change Old Wiring That will Shows Signs Of Deterioration or Fraying
7. Fix Fuse and Breaker Issues
8. Don’t Overload.
Overloaded outlets or file format cords can create a fire hazard.
In case in doubt, consult an in depth reference book or find a professional to do the work. Even if you think you obtained the project right, one mistake could leave a potential fire hazard hiding in your walls. A reputable electrician understands all facets of home wiring and may be able to wire your home safely in less time than it takes you to learn.
