insulated staples needed?
I am rewiring my house after a copper theft, special thanks to Vermont Mutual for denying the claim, thus forcing me to be my own electrician::>
I bought a great book from Home Depot that gives a simplified explanation of the NEC, but there are some items missing.
I need to know if insulated staples must be used (for securing type NM cable) or whether I can buy the much cheaper standard type? The house was built in 1997 and all the existing staples are the bare wire type. But, since I have to tear out all the existing wiring and redo it, must I use insulated staples on the new wiring?
I also have a few other simple and minor questions-but have posted them separately so that the title of the message accurately reflects it's contents.
They are not required by the national electrical code, but your local area may. Check with your building officials.
