Can you imagine life without it for even a second? The good news here is that home builders and electrical contractors are building homes with electrical outlets every 6 feet throughout the home. More than just coverage, the recommendations for home electrical wiring are: A properly designed whole house surge protection network with transient voltage surge suppression devices (TVSS) at the service entrance and point-of-use TVSS devices located strategically throughout the home behind PCs and entertainment centers, in home theaters and at major appliances. After the wires are run, you need to staple them down. Stapling keeps the wires in place so that they don't come out of the electrical boxes. It also holds them up and out of the way of the dry-wallers and so that they don't hang down in the ceiling. You should always staple the wire right before it enters an electrical box, and also right after it comes through the hole in the floor. When running a wire along a stud, try to keep the wire centered in the stud. That reduces the chance that a nail will go through the wire from either end. For many wires, you can nail the staple into the joist/stud and the use a wire tie to attach the wires to that staple. This method also ensures that the staples cannot damage the wire. If the end of the wire does not terminate in an electrical box, then you will need to measure the location of the wire. Measure from the closest corner of the room. Do not measure from a window. Also record if the wire is on the left or right side of the stud. For example, if the wire is attached to the left side of a stud, and you record that the wire is 90' away from the wall, when looking for that wire later your stud finder will tell you that there is a stud at 90'. You won't know which side of the stud to cut the drywall on. For complicated runs, you may even want to use a digital camera to record the location of wires. Also remember to add or subtract 3/4' from the measurement to account for the thickness of the drywall where you will start your measurement. Make sure you are dealing with quality Katy Electrician before starting any electrical upgrade. After running the wires through the electrical box, be sure to shove all of the wires in the box. Dry-wallers want to work fast, and any wires sticking out of the box may just get dry walled over. They could also get cut as the hole is cut for the electrical box. The builders will probably not take the time to place the wires in the box themselves. Also, if the wires stick out of the box or are very close to the front of the box then they will get covered in paint and may cover up your labeling or the labels could get torn off.
