I hope you like the electrical formulas, codes, symbols, and diagrams here in this download. This makes up a small part of home electrical uses for several common circuits.
This page brings in a lot of traffic from outside sources that haven’t seen my other home electrical pages. I practice safety all the time and I want my site visitors to be safe all the time.
Make sure that you understand the wire sizes and the amount of current they will safely carry. When wires overheat due to bad calculations, bad things happen.
This is just a quick and dirty wiring guide. For more info on wiring, please go back to my
main electrical page
and scroll to the bottom of that page to find links for each aspect of home wiring.
***REMEMBER SAFETY FIRST***
You know what they say about electricity right?
“Electricity can cook a man’s dinner or it can cook the man.”
Always have circuit breakers off and keep good communication with other fellow workers or family members if you’re working on your own home, about what you are doing with the electrical circuits.
Electrical safety is important in all types of wiring. Doorbells and phone wiring systems have low voltage, but in the right conditions, both can cause harm.
120-volt lines and especially 240-volt circuits need to be wired with the utmost care and safety.
