A complete, no-nonsense guide to safe residential electrical wiring. First published in 1996, this critically acclaimed reference is revised to account for changes made in the electrical code. Master electrician and home wiring veteran Rex Cauldwell gives you the benefits of his professional expertise along with tips and tricks he’s picked up from over 20 years on the job. Recognized as one of the most knowledgeable practical electricians in the country, Cauldwell takes the mystery out of every aspect of wiring a house, from wiring a panel to installing a light switch. Writing with a keen attention to safety, Cauldwell’s “code-plus” approach to home wiring shows you how to choose the best tools and materials, which materials to avoid, and how to wire any room. You’ll learn how to install main and sub service panels, receptacles, GFCIs, simple-to-complex fixtures, and every type of appliance. You’ll also find out how to ground a house properly, how to run wire in existing walls with minimal damage, and how to meet and beat national code requirements. New material covers home generators, lightning protection, and wiring “above code.” An essential reference for everyone associated with residential construction. 256 pp.
