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.
