Avoid the Most Common Electrical Code Violations

You depend on electricity to smoothly move through your day, but is your home in tip-top-shape when it comes to electrical wiring? You may be committing an “electrical sin” without even realizing it. Aside from causing you to be out of compliance with the National Electrical Code (NEC), violations put your family’s safety at risk.

The most common electrical code violations are caused by anything from an outdated system to tampering done by an inexperienced handyman. Some of these violations have to do with knob and tube wiring, new lights installed onto old wiring and overcrowding wires. An electrician can best determine whether or not your home complies with electrical code.
