installing a bathroom heater (Step1)
at the risk of ridicule, let me ask a few questions about installing a basic bathroom heater.
1. is it insane for a non-electrician to do anything with 220v-240v power? I mean, I don't mind learning a few shocking lessons on 110v but can't 220/40v kill you?
For instance (and I think I am probably answering my own question) before I ask about hooking this thing up,
can I use a regular multimeter to test the presence of current on the line before I start hooking things up?
120v, no problem. I set the thing to 200v, stick the black and red in the slot and presto, it shows me 118v.
but I am really nervous doing the same thing with a 240v circuit.
120 volts kill you just as dead as 240 volts.
Just make sure the breaker is off, and you run the correct wire for the heaters.
