Question: I have got my new house electrical wiring done. But unfortunately the electrician has taken the floor routing instead of ceiling. Is it advisable to use the floor or ceiling route only please. advise/suggest asap.
PleaseÂ feel free to ask for further clarifications if any.
Thanks for your electrical question Vikas. The method of wiring is determined by examining the structure of the building. It may be cost effective to install the wiring one way opposed another. Access is very important, however one must take into consideration all the other components that will be installed into the structure as well. This is why the scheduling of individual work crews is essential to allow specific systems to be installed before another crew comes in to install their equipment. Once this process begins the electrician will determine the best path to take for installing the electrical wiring safely and efficiently.

The Safest Way to Test Electrical Devices and Identify Electric Wiring!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, [amazon.com], I use for the detection of Standard 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.
