The wiring diagram also becomes a valuable way to test, monitor and troubleshoot the electrical circuit and all the various electrical components involved.

Safety precautions should always be taken while being extremely careful with all electrical installations.

Electrical wiring can be explained in several ways. Lets look at a few ways I will use to diagram electrical wiring to help you understand.

Caution:Never work on live or energized circuits.

One way to diagram electrical wiring is through what is known as a One-Line wiring diagram.
Here is an example of a one-line wiring-diagram:
wiring-diagram-1
This is a really great way to see the whole circuit and its controlling devices, however it will not explain the types of wiring methods used and where the various wiring is installed. An understanding of Electrical Symbols and how electrical controls function is necessary.

Next is the blue print and its guide to diagram electrical wiring.
The typical set of home blue prints is the complete representation of the whole building project which shows how the home is to be built from the ground up, giving full details from start top finish.
A typical full set of blue prints contains the following:
[trade sets and more]
Here is an example of an electrical blueprint:
home-electrical-blueprint
What a blue print will not show is the methods involved in how each trade will actually install their parts into the home building project. This knowledge comes through various forms of education and several years of on the job experience. Every trades person knows that each building project comes with its own set of challenges and requirements. This would be the difference between building a track-home and a Custom Home, or a stick-frame home and an energy efficient Green-Home project.
Another yet more practical way to diagram electrical wiring is through a visual explanation where showing all the electrical components of the circuit and its connected and the devices installed can be easily understood without knowing all the theory about why the electrical circuit works, but rather give you the "how it works" explanation.
Here is an example of a visual-wiring-diagram:
visual-wiring-diagram
I will explain both aspects as I diagram electrical wiring in a way that will show you how the various components of home electrical wiring is installed correctly and to code.

Electrical Tips to Help You Wire it Right

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.

The Quickest Way to Check for Faulty Electrical Wiring!

The Plug-In Outlet Tester
This is the first tool I grab to troubleshoot a problem with outlet circuit wiring. This popular tester is also used by most inspectors to test for power and check the polarity of circuit wiring.
It detects probable improper wiring conditions in standard 110-125 VAC outlets Provides 6 probable wiring conditions that are quick and easy to read for ultimate efficiency Lights indicate if wiring is correct and indicator light chart is included Tests standard 3-wire outlets UL Listed Light indicates if wiring is incorrect Very handy and easy to use.

Strip Off Wire Insulation without Nicking and Damaging the Electric Wire!

The Wire Stripper and Wire Cutter
My absolute favorite wire stripping tool that I have had in my personal electrical tool pouch for years, and this is the tool I use to safely strip electrical wires.
This handy tool has multiple uses:
The wire gauges are shown on the side of the tool so you know which slot to use for stripping insulation.
The end of the tool can be used to grip and bend wire which is handy for attaching wire onto the screw terminals of switches and outlets..

The wire stripper will work on both solid and stranded wire. This tool is Very Handy and Easy to Use.
