Electrical Wiring – San Jose – Romex
The first article in this series on electrical wiring acts as the table of contents for the series.
Romex is the name giving to wiring that is specially made for homes.
It has a vinyl jacket that covers the individual wires, all but one of which is further insulated.
It is designed to provide reliable and long lasting insulation, so even after years and years, the hot wires stay nicely encased in their insulation and do not become a danger to you and your family.
It is labeled with the wire gauge and number of conductors.
The example in the picture is 12/2, which means the wires are twelve gauge, and there are two of them, not counting the ground wire.
The most common romex used in homes is 12/2 (for outlet circuits) and 14/2 (for lighting circuits).
When you need electrical wiring services from a professional, we would very much appreciate an opportunity to be of service.
