Host, Sarah Rutan: Due to the complexity of your home’s electrical panel, it’s important to pay close attention to critical aspects like wiring. To learn more, we’re in Rohnert Park with Estevan Alvarez of Reyff Electric, speaking on behalf of Diamond Certified Expert Contributor Chet Heenan.
Estevan Alvarez: All right, so today we’re going to talk about proper wiring in your panel for safety. This is important because you can have an electrician or a handyman come to your home and do some wiring that will be done improperly and it can be a safety issue for you and your home. So, one of the issues we face in older panels is a double lugged breaker and what a double lugged breaker is when you have two circuits going into one circuit breaker. This is a problem because this can cause over feeding of your wires and this can cause this breaker to trip prematurely.
Another issue we can do is the wrong size wire in the breaker. This is a size 14 wire installed in a size 20 amp breaker. This wire is only rated for a certain amount of power to flow through it. Installing a large breaker to get more power out of it will cause the wire to break down prematurely and can cause it to short out or lose power. Another issue is grounding, over here you can see grounding come out of the panel, but there is no ground coming into the panel. So, you need proper grounding in your panel for safety and to protect you and your home.
So, another problem here is this Romex. So, the problem here with this Romex is there is no bushing or connecter, like you see here, this is a Romex connector. This protects the Romex from any damage that can be caused by rubbing against the edge here which can cut into it causing arcing, a tripped breaker, and will cause you to have problems in your circuits. So, this is what you will find behind your meter, there are your meter jaws which allow electricity to pass through to panel and into your home. Over time these can become lose and what has happened here is heating and arcing has been going on and caused a power loss most likely in this panel. So, this is all very important because you want safe wiring done in your home. Safe wiring in your home will ensure that all your appliances, your lights, your plugs all work properly and keep you and your home safe.
