6 simple tips to bear in mind while working on electrical wiring

Electrical wiring is a potentially dangerous task if done improperly. One should never attempt working on electrical wiring without knowing the below tips and tricks followed by even the most experienced electrician.

Here are 6 tips from NextGen electricians in London.

1. Power Tests

Always check and test wires and devices for power inside the box you are working in to prevent electric shock before working on them. Sometimes, even if you shut off power, some wiring may be connected to another circuit & hence may still pose a threat of electric shock.

2. Uncoil Cable

The best way to easily instal cables is to straighten them out first. Pull the cable from the centre of the coil and lift a handful of coils. Next step is to toss them across the floor as if you’re throwing a coiled rope. Once untangled, it helps in easier handling and neater storage.

3. Amperage Rating

Amperage Rating or Amp needs to be checked for all electrical wiring and devices. Before installing or changing wiring, one must have the appropriate amp rating for all circuits. For example, a 30-amp circuit must have a right-gauge wiring to prevent fire hazard.

4. Grounding Wires

Grounding provides a safe path for extra electric current to pass in case of a fault or any other issue. Follow the manufacturer’s wiring diagrams and understand grounding systems.

5. Boxes and Clamps

You need to ensure enclosing all wiring connections in appropriate electrical boxes or clamps. Enclosures protect the connection as well as the people from accidental contacts with those connections.

6. Right Wire

There are various different kinds of wires available in the market – Heat Resistant, Flame Resistant, Industrial Grade etc. Make sure to choose the right wire for your need.
