New and Additional Wiring

First and most importantly all new and additional wiring must be up to code and pass ESA inspection.  Secondly the uses of the wiring have to be taken into account so that you will be able to have circuits that will perform their task without any problems.  Do you need 15 Amps, 20 Amps or 40 Amps?  Do you need to install GFCI’s or AFCI’s.  Do you need 120 Volts or 240 Volts?  How many receptacles or lights or devices should you have on a single circuit breaker?  Do you have enough space in your electrical panel for the number of new circuit breakers you will need?  Even the number of wires put together through a hole in a stud is a matter of concern.

     While you may get offers from a handyman to run new and additional wiring for you, that is taking a risk that you shouldn’t take.  Get the work done by a licensed electrician, there is no substitute for proper training and years of experience and familiarity with the applicable codes that you get when you hire a Master Electrician.  That is what you get when you call HouseDepot.

Once the wiring is in place and the drywall put up it is much more difficult to change, add to, or correct.  You need to have it done right the first time.  Your only assurance that that will happen is when you get a properly licensed and trained electrician.  If it was simple and could be done by anyone there wouldn’t be rigorous training and testing to get a Master Electrician license and there wouldn’t be such a strict set of codes that were applicable to any possible electric configuration.  Quite simply, the electricity that most of us take pretty much for granted, is dangerous if not properly provided for.
