There are reasons why these are the most commonly asked electrical wiring questions. One, many think it’s simple to do, and two, these are the common electrical tasks at home. But then you should not put your safety at risk in your goal to save money. The stakes could even be much greater if you try to save money and do an electrical wiring job without sufficient knowledge or experience.
Doing electrical wiring by yourself can be tricky. This is especially so when you lack the knowledge and the experience in electrical stuff. The thing is you cannot do a trial and error method when dealing with electrical wiring. Mistakes could cost you a fortune or even your life. That is why before starting any do-it-yourself electrical repair, you have to ask some electrical wiring questions just to be sure you know what you are doing. One thing about electrical wiring is that wires are usually color coded. Thus, it is actually easier to know which ones go with which. Below are the most common electrical wiring questions whose answers generally involve colors to help you identify each particular wire.
Although household electricity is nothing to play around with, in many ways, wiring is simpler than other repair and remodeling skills such as carpentry. Once you’ve learned some basic skills such as installing boxes, running cable, and splicing, you just need to determine which wire goes where. This is why a good wiring diagram is important for wiring your home safely. Keep your diagrams near-by. You’ll want to refer to them often as you work on your project.
What are Electrical Panels? Electric panels are connected to the service meter or the electrical disconnect. Each panel has varying wire size and the size depends on the electrical panel installation and the size of the meter. Typically, a household uses 100-amp and 200-amp breaker panels and the power comes from service drops, which are split into separate circuits or sub-panels. Though it is not a common practice among homeowners to explore what is inside their electrical service panels, it is a good idea to evaluate the inner section of the electrical panel, taking all due caution. Be reminded that working outside of your scope can be dangerous. You need to take proper care to ensure there is no risk of shock produced by the lugs that connect to the service drop as the consequences of contact can be fatal.
