The possibility of water and electricity mixing, is one of the most life threatening combinations in our homes today. The modern home on the other hand demands an array of high tech equipment, ranging from the purest juicer to the broadest toaster not even naming the kettle, grill and bullet blender. All of this equipment shouts for an outlet that needs to be safe and available.
Below are a few rules and regulations:
Are you willing to risk the safety of your family and home to save money, is the first thing you should ask yourself before embarking on an electrical DIY afternoon. In most states the homeowner can pull his own electrical permit for work in his single family home, however in the case of damage or fire caused by his work, the homeowners insurance will not pay. Home insurance will only pay if the work is done by a licensed electrical contractor. It is also a violation for a licensed electrician to connect wiring that has been done by an unlicensed electrician, so anything you attempt at home will have to be re-done regardless. Over and above the financial implications there are potentially deadly consequences to doing your own electrical work, from high-voltage shock, internal injury or even nerve damage.
