MS Electrical Contractors - Electrical wiring codes

This month MS Electrical, based in Ashford Kent reports on the Electrical Wiring Codes that business and home owners should be aware of.

Most municipalities across the country have adopted the international building code, which also includes the international residential code. So there's the code that applies specifically to commercial construction, and a code that applies specifically to residential construction, and particularly on the electrical systems that are located commercially and residentially, they tend to be a little bit different, so there are some unique aspects to that. Now, with the electrical code, there are minimum standards that are required, and some of this has to do with providing consistent power through out the home, but also to provide safe wiring and safe praxes to ensure fire safety, or fire protection. And part of this is a combination of regular one twenty voltage wiring that comes in to the house, and also low voltage devices that you would find, such as smoke detector systems, or alarm systems, or such like that. So, whenever new construction is planned, or renovations that involve electrical circuitry are planned, what it requires is that you pull those plans together, it typically requires a licensed electrician such as MS Electrical in Ashford Kent, or some kind of sworn statement that the home owner is going to be doing certain renovations. And with renovations, or changing circuitry, there is a scope of work that home owners are allowed to do, and then there's a certain scope of work that only licensed electricians are allowed to do. If you have questions about that, you can contact your local building codes department, and they can guide you through what those various constraints are for what you can take on as a home owner, and what will require a licensed electrician in Ashford to do. So when ever you're planning to either develop new construction with electrical components, or do a renovation that has electrical components, you will need to submit plans and get approval from your local codes department to make sure that your plans meet the minimum building code standards. MS Electrical Contractors, Ashford Kent can provide useful information as well as practical help on this matter.
