The Importance of Staying up to Code

Staying up to code is important for safety and proper electrical distribution throughout your home. Wiring that is not done properly can overload breakers and increase the risk of electrical fires. If you are upgrading the electrical system in an old home or preparing for a remodel, it is especially important to hire a professional electrician to ensure all new wiring is up to code. Old wiring is not rated for the increased usage that we put on our electrical systems these days. It also is not rated for modern appliances and electronics. At Secure Electrical Contractors, we can handle all necessary upgrades and electrical inspections in El Paso, TX. 

Common Electrical Code Violations

When it comes to electrical codes, there are national and local codes that need to be adhered to. The National Fire Protection Association has established the National Electrical Code (NEC), which all 50 states follow. Each state has its own codes that need to be followed in addition to the NEC. Some of the most common violations include

  • Installing new lights and using the old wires: New lighting runs hotter than older lights. Old wiring is not rated for these temperatures, and using old wiring with new lights is a fire hazard.
  • Permanently splicing wires together: Wire should only be spliced for temporary purposes by a professional electrician. Splicing wires together creates a high risk for fires.
  • Too many wires in the same opening: There should be no more than three wires running through a 7/8-inch diameter opening. Including too many wires in the same opening can cause damage and expose wires.
  • Nails and screws penetrating wires: Nails and screws must be used in accordance with the NEC when used to secure wiring. Improperly installing nails and screws can damage wires and cause an electrical fire. A professional electrician will know all of the criteria for securing wiring with nails and screws.

These are just a few of the most common electrical violations. With all of the criteria for wiring from the NEC and local entities, it is best to always hire an experienced and licensed electrician. Trying to do wiring yourself can result in a devastating fire down the road. At Secure Electrical Contractors, we know all of the NEC and local compliance codes. We have the experience to handle any type of electrical upgrade.
