The Process For Home Electrical Wiring Upgrades
Background: Anthony, a Homeowner from Lorain, Ohio
Question: I have very old wiring on this home so I decided to redo all of it and my question is should I run my wiring straight to the breaker box for each room or can I do multiple rooms to the same breaker? (taking into consideration that each room has ceiling fans). The box is in my basement and the rooms I’m working on is in the second floor.
Additional Comments: I love the website its so informative.
