With the same innovative "hands-on" approach and task-focused organization that made the first edition so popular, Residential Construction Academy: House Wiring, 2E has been updated to reflect the most current electrical wiring practices in use, including the 2008 National Electrical Code.
Designed to highlight the principles and practices used in the installation of a residential electrical wiring system, as well as how to effectively put them into practice, this book provides a valuable resource for learning the basic skills required of an entry-level electrician.
Beginning with the preparation and planning tasks and moving forward to cover service entrances and equipment, rough-in and trim-out, and concluding with a section on maintenance and troubleshooting, the topics progress logically to provide readers with a strong sense of the tasks involved in a residential wiring project, from start to finish.
Section I: Preparing and Planning a Residential Wiring Job
Section II: Residential Service Entrances and Equipment
Section III: Residential Electrical System Rough-In
Section IV: Residential Electrical System Trim-Out
Section V: Maintaining and Troubleshooting a Residential Electrical Wiring System
