Additional Notes / Comments regarding Wiring Done Right'
The information on this website is to provide you with the knowledge & understandings of how to work with electricity in the home, and to keep your family safe at the same this information is not intended on being a replacement for professional advice and help. As a founder of this website and author of these self help documents it was done with the intention of saving lives through education and knowledge and not intended as a way to put electricians out of business.
Rather the profession likes / approves it or not, every day home owners do some of their own electrical work, I am not here to promote the practice, I only acknowledge the practice is happening all the time. I have had comments before from people in the profession that people like me are putting electricians out of business, I would like to reply to those questions that people like me are saving lives, and giving people the knowledge that will help those you would try and do at least some of their own electrical rather this website existed or not, these types of websites at least lessens the chance that they will do something that could harm or prove fatal to them or their families.
Next I would like everyone considering doing any of their own electrical themselves to evaluate their own comfort level and their knowledge level before starting any electrical project. As with me their are things I will not touch, one of those things are gas pipes which I would use someone who is an expert in that field to perform those tasks in the home, please know your abilities and limitations; do not tackle beyond those comfort limitations that we all have. Some people do really well if they are able to gain some direction and knowledge, others no matter how much knowledge is out there from places such as this website they will still not comprehend it fully that is not something that diminishes you as a person as everyone has their weakness and strengths, we just have it in different areas. Electricians have to go through formal classroom training as well as years of on the job training and experience before obtaining a full electricians license.
I am not afraid of electricity to a point, as a homeowner the utility power meter is off limits, and the main master breaker cut off (likely a 200 amp main breaker if you have 200 amp service) at the service panel is off limits to me, as that is a direct connection to the utility company that I cannot shut down on both sides of this, the power lines coming from the utility to the home is also off limits.
I would like to point out I am not a licensed electrician, but still maintain a broad range of knowledge on electrical subjects, I have previously co produced and sold websites on electrical subjects, my co producer of those websites was an electrical & building inspector in the United States (I live in Canada), unfortunately he is now deceased, during the many years that I worked with him building electrical websites I benefited from increasing even more my knowledge on electrical subjects. I hold a amateur radio license, and consider myself highly technically minded, I have done some electronic repairs myself but I am not an electronics technician and work in operations side of broadcast television.
The poorer section of the population, young families that are starting out do not have a great deal of money and are therefore more inclined to do their own work including electrical because when it comes down to it living pay to pay, and barely making it to the next payday, feeding and meeting the day to day needs of their family as well as paying the utilities and mortgage is always at the priority and little money is left to cover the cost of bringing in a professional.
Self Help websites do not exist to take away the livelihoods of professionals, I hope that some knowledge gained on this website and others like it that we will help families live a longer life and keep them safe.
