How To Run Electricity In Your Home

When you want to remodel or finish a room in your house, you will need to update or run electricity to the space. If you have some experience in this area, you can have things set up and power in your new area quickly. Here are a few steps to follow. 

Purchase Supplies

Before you start working, buy the supplies you will need such as wire, electrical conduit addison il, and anchor boxes. You should have tools like wire cutters, tape measure, screws, and a screwdriver. Order these ahead of time so you will have them when you plan to work and have them in the room with you so they are available when you need them. 

Install the Boxes

Determine where in the room you want to have the anchor boxes. You will want to mount them where they will easily meet up with the other wiring in the house. Use a level as you line them up then mark on the wall with a pencil to indicate where it will go. Keep in mind where it is in relation to the floor and ceiling and that the openings for the conduit are in the correct place. With a screwdriver, secure the box to the wall.

Set Up the Conduit

Stretch out the conduit along the wall to ensure that it lines up between the boxes. Feed it up to the box and mark on the metal to indicate where you will cut it. Using a saw, cut the conduit where you have drawn the line then smooth down the exposed cut so it is dull and safe for the wire insulation. Thread the tube into the box that you installed then tighten the set screw around it to keep the conduit in place. If you need assistance to secure it, use a pair of pliers or a wrench to twist the screw.
