Bulldog.com offers a basic explanation of electrical information in an MS Word document; however they do not supply charts or schematics. Two other sites that I found to offer great information were Freeauto.com and 12voltresource.com. Freeauto.com provides complete color diagnostics for most makes and models. What I found interesting(?) is freeauto will provide you these color automotive electrical charts and all the other information on their informative website for $11.99. They also assist you with basic electrical theory, electrical harnesses and test equipment.
Most notably, while utilizing residential electrical wiring does not forget one essential saying "Electricity can kill." It is vital you fully respect it when focusing on electrical wiring in your home. In many municipalities do not even be allowed to operate on it, and generally you will need a permit at least. Within my experience local building inspectors provides homeowner has permits for small projects once they present an electrical wiring diagram plan that will demonstrate some level associated with basic electrical wiring understanding.
I found myself with a decision to either, break down and spend $100 an hour for a so-called expert to look at it and try to repair it, or I could learn how the electrical system of my car worked. Considering my level of ignorance I probably was going to try to conquer the impossible. After all the only thing I knew about electrical systems is that AC/DC was a rock band and that dummies and wiring usually did not get along. However despite my reluctance, I set out to learn what I could about automotive wiring. I quickly learned that there is a huge supply of information available on the subject of automotive wiring. A quick search on Google provided me with an array of information. There are many different levels of sites offering information.
Use separate circuits for lights. Even if the breaker of a wall outlet trips because of overload, the lights will remain on. Label the switches in the breaker box. It is necessary for emergencies when you do not need to waste time to figure out which switch controls what circuit. The labeling will also help during upgrades or reinstallation of electrical wiring. Installing an electrical wiring layout is not the job of an amateur. Leave it to an expert electrician who will know the best about the placement and installation of the instruments. However, you should be a part of it to have a better understanding of the electrical system of your house.
A Single-Pole Switch provides switching from one location only. "Single-Pole" may sound simple, but there are different ways to wire a Single-Pole Switch and a set of electrical wiring diagrams will explain each of them to you clearly. 3-Way Switches are used to control one or more fixtures from two locations. This is a common configuration in hallways and staircases. There are many ways to wire a 3-Way Switch. The power can start at a fixture or either of the two switches. Without a wiring diagram it can be very easy to make a serious mistake. A wiring diagram will even take the mystery out of wiring a 3-Way Dimmer Switch. What a great way to enjoy softer light and a reduced energy bill!
Remember that wires of the same color connect to each other. Basically, electrical wires are color coded to prevent wiring errors. White wires are normally used to connect to other white wires or to chrome terminal screws on switches and receptacles. Black wires in the cables are intended for connecting switches. However, there are cases where a cable is extended. If this is the material, white wires are often used instead of black wires. To be able to prevent future wiring errors, try to paint the white wire black.
Install the GFCIs. The ground-fault circuit interrupters are a must for affirming the electrical safety in wet locations. They cut the power to the circuit when there is a power short. They reduce electrical hazards significantly. Determine the best height for the receptacles. You will need to install them at heights comfortable for you to reach. For example, place them at the waist or desk height if you do not want to bend over to plug or unplug everything. On the other hand, a knee height makes sense for items such as floor lamps, TVs, etc. If it is a workshop, install them higher on the wall than in a home setting. Such a place uses lots of small power tools, and higher outlets are convenient for plugging and unplugging such equipment.
