ELECTRICITY:
Always be particularly careful when working on electrical projects and with electrical equipment.
Be sure to positively identify each circuit with an electrical test meter or instrument and Turn Off Electrical Circuits BEFORE proceeding with any electrical work. Always use common sense. Never work when fatigued or tired.

The advice and guidance and other information provided here-in on the ask-the-electrician.com web site. or within any of the publications cannot completely anticipate or predict your exact situations.
If you are at all unsure about completing any aspect of this or other home wiring projects, consult a qualified electrical contractor to perform the service(s) for you.

National Electrical Codes, local building requirements and planning commission regulations specific to your area must always be held in compliance and considered before undertaking any home electrical project. Contact your local electrical authority and your insurance company to ensure that your project meets all policies, warranties, regulations and authorities concerning this work. Insurance companies and their agents and carriers should be contacted for compliance issues relating to your policy.
When adding new electrical circuits and devices to your home electrical system you will need to obtain a permit from your local city or county building department or the equivalent authority having jurisdiction in your area. In most areas the homeowner is allowed to work on their home electrical system. Check with your local authority to verify the limits of homeowner allowed work. Some areas may limit the homeowner to work on branch circuits only and not the main electrical service or panels or meters. Some areas issue permits that will allow the homeowner to build their entire home. Check with your local authority to verify your allowed level of work.

The utility or company which provides electrical power to your home electrical system commonly assumes responsibility to the point of your electrical meter. In the event that your electrical system has a failure that involves any portion of the utility side of the electrical service requires that the utility company be notified immediately for assistance. Do not attempt the repair of any abnormalities until the utility company has been on site to inspect the situation. They will then advise you of the necessary repairs needed to take place.
