So much information needs to be known before carrying out electrical installations at home, ranging from type, function, to the network of electrical wires. Electrical installations that are done alone are not without risks, errors in workmanship can result in electrical short circuit and accidents that threaten personal safety. That is why it is always better to use the service of professional residential electrician Lexington SC.
But, if you plan to do the electrical installation at home independently, it is important to understand the basics of electrical wiring. Getting to know several power cord terms and being able to identify the types and uses of electric cables can also help solve electrical problems that occur after installation. In determining the right type of electrical cable, you need to pay attention to the size of the cable diameter, capacity, and usefulness of the cable you need.
