Electrical Wiring – Saratoga – Adding a New Circuit
The first article in this series on electrical wiring acts as the table of contents for the series.
Adding a new circuit is conceptually similar to extending a circuit, with the one critically important difference that the circuit starts at a circuit breaker in the panel.
If you are comfortable with how a panel is laid out (where the hot buses are), removing and/or installing a circuit breaker is safe.
If you are NOT comfortable with this, don’t experiment.
Either get education through home wiring instruction picture books (the Black and Decker series is very good), or hire a professional, even if you only use them for this one part of the project.
In general, the hardest part of installing a new circuit is running the wire, not the electrical part, and it just takes time.
If you have electrical wiring needs for which you want professional help, we would appreciate an opportunity to be of service.
