A/C Current Question

I totally love this, but as a group, let's all admit that sometimes we forget that people are trying to learn or glean useful/helpful info for what they are trying to accomplish. Not bashing anyone, but when you think about it, it's funny the way electrical professionals can get to arguing (and learning!)!

Take care John and all the regulars,

I agree about the chance to learn something from each other. No harm in that at all. I enjoy reading the knowledgeable posts that sometimes spin off a simple question.

I wonder though, how many DIYers enjoy reading our technical posts just for entertainment. For example, no DIYer will ever connect a 15,000HP motor to 13,800 volts, but I wonder if it's interesting to them to know what's out there, or the technical end of how something works.

On the other hand, we could just be wasting our time.

Yeah, like explaining how it has to meet code, but then the HO finds out its way to expensive to do it to code so they hack it in anyways...

Way too common!!! Sometimes they make headlines in the local newspaper though.

I like the way most electricians on this forum will take time to explain the reasons behind a code article to HO's rather than just tell them "it's code." I think that helps a lot. Sometimes knowing why you are doing something a certain way makes the extra cost easier to accept. Just my opinion.
