Safe Wiring Practices

Always use the correct size wire for your circuit. If adding onto an existing circuit make sure to match the existing wire size and type.

Install wiring so that it is protected and will not be damaged by dry wall or wall covering fasteners such as screws or nails.

Drill holes in the center of the framing stud. Before drilling holes look on the opposite side of the framing stud to be sure it is clear of other wiring, pipes or any other existing such system device components.

Always use Metal Safety Plates to protect the electrical wiring where it could be damaged from wall covering nails or screws.

Great Electrical Wiring Question - Here is the Answer!


There is no limit as to how many Romex wires you can run between two rooms, the home wiring method would be the factor when wiring remodel construction projects.

The path for the Romex wiring must be installed using methods which will protect the wiring from nails and screws used to install sheet rock and other wall coverings.

Drill the holes for the Romex in the center of the wall studs or framing material used for your remodel construction. If the holes get too close the outside of the studs, then be sure to protect the home wiring or Romex by using Safety Plates, also know as Nail Plates.

Below you will see some home wiring photos of recent remodel construction projects that I have selected to help you with your project.

In areas where the home wiring may be vulnerable to harm of sheet rock screws or nails, always install Safety Nail Plates to protect the wiring!

When remodeling, routing wiring through corners is a special area of concern because the sheet rock will be anchored securely in this area.

The electrical wiring should be back 1-1/2' away from both nailing surfaces - Interior and Exterior.

Flickering Light Fixture Problem

Samiksha asks:
Since a few days the lights in my whole house flicker ( suddenly turn off and on) for less than a second. it happens 5-6 times a day. I installed a chandelier few days ago and I think it started after that. is it possible that in case I did something wrong with the wiring in the chandelier, the lights throughout the house can be affected? or is it an indication of some other major issue?

Dave’s Reply:
From what you have described, if the all of the lights in the house flicker, and there are problems with receptacle outlets as well, then it is very possible there is a problem within the main electrical system at the condo.

The wiring connections for the new chandelier should be checked to make sure there are no loose wiring connections, because if there was a problem it would only affect one or possibly two circuits in the condo.

If the light fixture wiring looks OK, then notify the condo complex property manager about the problem so they can investigate the problem further with a qualified electrician.
