Confident that you know what you’re doing? Be sure to keep these protection tips in mind to avoid hazards during your home cabling project.
1. Energy Off
Make sure the strength is off at the breaker prior to starting and use a voltage tester to verify that wire connections and/or electrical contacts are completely dead before you start working on them. Make sure everyone at home is aware that electrical work is going on. Tape the routine breaker into the off position.
2. Be Careful Everything you Touch
Never touch plumbing or fuel pipes while working with electricity they are often used to ground electrical systems.
3. Use The Right Tools
Before starting, make sure you have an idea in place as to what outlets, switches 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 & line stripper, fish & colored tape, volts tester, continuity specialist, electric & rightangle drill. You may be able to hire some of this equipment from the local hardware store.
4. Choose the Right Elements
Should you be installing new receptacles make certain the new ones match the electrical wiring in your home. A AL-CU seal of approval means it can be used on aluminum and copper mineral wiring. In case it is unmarked or there exists a cut through the AL if should only be used on copper wiring.
5. Incorporate a Junction Box
Never splice cables together and hide them within a wall without a junction box — an accessible junction package should always be used to join wires.
6. Replace Old Wiring That will Shows Signs Of Degeneration or Fraying
7. Fix Fuse and Breaker Difficulties
8. Don’t Overload.
Beyond capacity outlets or file format cords can create a fire hazard.
In case in doubt, consult an in depth reference publication or find a professional to do the work. Even if you think you received the project right, one mistake could leave a possible fire hazard lurking in your surfaces. A reputable electrician understands all aspects of home wiring and may be able to wire your home safely quicker than it takes you to learn.
