How to Draw Wiring Diagrams for a Home Electrical Project
- This question has me very curious: How can you be wiring a house if you do not already have a wiring diagram?
- I ask this because the electrical layout diagram or set of blueprints are usually drawn up and should have been approved before you begin to wire a home.
- If is a school project then you may be starting with a empty home layout where you are required to add the electrical devices and circuits.

The Safest Way to Test Electrical Devices and Identify Electric Wires!The Non-Contact Electrical Tester
This is a testing tool that I have had in my personal electrical tool pouch for years, and is the first test tool I grab to help identify electrical wiring. It is a Non-contact tester that I use to easily Detect Voltage in Cables, Cords, Circuit Breakers, Lighting Fixtures, Switches, Outlets and Wires. Simply insert the end of the tester into an outlet, lamp socket, or hold the end of the tester against the wire you wish to test. Very handy and easy to use.
