Hence, learn about the local codes and regulations, and follow them religiously. When it comes to electrical house wiring, there are three basic components that you need to familiarize yourself with - the service entry, panel board and branch circuits. The service entry should be 10 feet above the ground, and refers to the main power grid of your home. The panel board is the control center that distributes electricity to other appliances. The branch circuits refer to those areas, where electric current is distributed from panel boards.
There may be some loose connections. If a set of lights simply goes dead, circuit breakers and Ground Fault Receptacle Interrupters (GFCI) need to be reset. You can try to reset your circuit breaker; if the problem persists, you call a professional electrician for solution.
Here’s the good news: Most electricity-related fires can be easily avoided by following a few simple preventive measures. For instance, you should always be watchful of electric hazards around your home. When a fuse box melts or when a plug produces sparks when you try to plug it in to the wall socket, call an electrician right away. Unless you are a qualified electrician yourself, you should never try to tinker with your home’s electrical wiring; your noble efforts might cause even more damage than good. Hiring a professional to do the job will cost you a few extra bucks, but this expense is worth the added protection you can give to your home and your family in the long run.
How Do You Wire a Switch? One of the most common electrical wiring questions is on how to wire a switch. While using switches at home is quite easy, wiring one may not be that easy for everybody. An ON-OFF switch is actually quite simple to wire. There are different types of switches, but for this example, let’s say you are installing a single-pole toggle switch, a very common switch (and the simplest). There are three colors of wires in a typical single-pole toggle switch: black, white, and green. Splice the black wire in two and connect them on the terminal screws - one on top and the other on the bottom screw of the switch. The white wire serves as a source of uninterrupted power and is usually connected to a light colored terminal screw (e.g., silver). Connect the green wire to the ground screw of your switch.
