New Home Wiring - Seeking Expert Advice
I'm a retired USAF aircraft maintainer (have knowledge of aircraft wiring requirements, but only passing awareness of NEPA 70 and ANSI/NECA 1-2006, etc.)
After taking posession of a newly constructed home I noticed the Attic Wiring "appears" to have "issues" ... BUT ... the builder (Del Webb/Pulte) /sub-contractor says its ok.
1. Wiring for HVAC Flow Valves rest against a threaded down-rod for the air handler support.
- Wiring is held about a foot from resting arc, so there is constant contact and very slight pressure.
- Air handler vibrates when in operation.
- Appears (to me) to be an eventual shorting/fire hazard.
- Also: Is there a maximum allowable distance between supports for an electric valve control wire?
2. Wiring for recessed lights (for rooms below attic) contacts with sharp edge of the metal plates used to support the joints in the pre-fabricated rafters.
3. Wiring for the HVAC Fan is looped through a rafter, with no staples or other securing devices in the last 10 feet or so.
All of these seem to be either a violation of code or at the least not neat and workmanlike, but I'm far from an expert. Can someone educate me?
