Confident that you know what you’re doing? Be sure to keep these security advice when mind to avoid hazards during your home electrical wiring project.
1. Strength Off
Make sure the strength is off at the breaker before you begin and use a voltage tester to verify that wires and/or electrical cable connections are completely dead before you start working on them. Make sure everyone at home is aware that electrical work is going on. Tape the signal breaker into the off position.
2. Be Careful Whatever you Touch
Never touch plumbing or fuel pipes while working together with electricity they are often used to ground electrical systems.
3. Use The Right Tools
Before starting, be sure to have a plan in place as to what outlets, switches 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, voltage tester, continuity specialist, electric & rightangle drill. You may be in a position to hire some of this equipment from the local hardware store.
4. Purchase the Right Elements
Should you be installing new receptacles make positive the new ones match the wiring in your home. A AL-CU stamp means it can be used on aluminum and water piping wiring. When it is unmarked or there exists a slash through the 'S if should only be used on copper wiring.
5. Include A Junction Container
Never splice wire connections together and cover up them within a wall with out a junction box — an accessible junction container should always be used to become a member of wires.
6. Replace Old Wiring That Shows Indications of Deterioration or Fraying
7. Fix Fuse and Breaker Difficulties
8. Don’t Overload.
Beyond capacity outlets or extension cords can create a fire threat.

Even though you think you got the project right, one mistake could leave a prospective fire hazard hiding in your wall space. A reputable electrical contractor understands all aspects of home wiring and may be able to wire your home safely in less time than it takes you to definitely learn.
