WARNING: The information provided and depicted on MrElectrician.TV is NOT a substitute for having a trained, licensed, bonded, and insured PROFESSIONAL ELECTRICIAN work on your home’s electrical wiring. Homes and buildings burn down, and people get injured or killed due to faulty electrical wiring and bad wiring installations.
It is NOT recommended that a non-professional without assistance, training, experience, credentials, proper tools, safety equipment, or oversight attempt to do electrical wiring to his or her own home or a home or building that belongs to someone else.
This website was created to assist those willing to take the time to learn correct electrical wiring installation techniques and are willing to assume a great deal of risk.
If you are serious about learning correct wiring methods, reading the National Electrical Code (NFPA 70) published by the National Fire Protection Association is an excellent place to start. Abbreviated Electrical Code pocketbooks are available for those planning to do a limited amount of electrical work.
Many electrical instruction books are available online and in home improvement and hardware stores. I have not read them all, and I cannot make any recommendations at this time. However, one thing that I noticed from the books I have previewed is the people who wrote them are authors and writers, not full-time electricians.
It would be best if you also studied construction safety. Even if you are experienced with wiring, getting injured or killed while doing electrical work, or any other type of home improvement is still possible.
I have a few articles about safety, but they are not everything you need to know.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has its own construction regulations that all employers must abide by. Read 29 CFR 1926 OSHA Construction Industry Regulations.
I have over 30 Categories of electrical wiring blog posts.
