Answers to Your Electrical Questions from a Master Electrician
March 24, 2007
I’ve created this post because I receive numerous emails from everyone trying to figure out how to ask their electrical wiring questions on this blog. I’ve tried instructions in the side bar in text and audio and this did not work. I downloaded an awesome plugin that creates a very simple form, but Yahoo! does not allow PHP mail from any email address that is not on my domain. In my opinion this is useless. Why would I want a contact form for other people on my domain to contact me only. The other people on my domain are employees. They already know how to contact me. Oh well, enough with my rants; there is no negotiating with Yahoo!.
Where can I get help with electrical questions?
You may submit any residential electrical wiring question in the comments section of this post. You may also submit your question in the comment section of any related post on this blog. I will answer the first residential electrical wiring or troubleshooting question posted to this blog daily. I will answer your electrical question within 24 hours. If you need immediate assistance, please visit DIY Electrical Help.
What kind of electrical wiring projects can you help me with?
At this time I will only offer help for residential electrical wiring projects. I will not offer help for commercial or industrial wiring projects as you are required to be a qualified electrician to do this type of work. However, in most areas, homeowners are permitted to complete electrical wiring projects on their own homes. Please check with your local building codes department before beginning your wiring project to ensure you are legally permitted to do this type of work in your area.
What kind of experience do you have?
I have over 21 years experience in the electrical trade. Where I have worked on a wide variety of projects from small jobs like adding receptacles to large industrial projects like a co-gen power project and most everything in between. In my opinion the co-gen power project was the coolest job I had the opportunity to wire. I was a working foreman on this project and managed as many as 20 other electricians and apprentices. This project was at a landfill where we used the methane gas the degrading trash creates as the fuel supply to power two – 1 megawatt generators and feed the utility company 35,000 volts.
I will answer your DIY electrical wiring question either in a separate post by itself or in a “Q&A” post with others.
