    Hey all, I'm adding a 60A sub panel directly next to a main panel and will be connecting the two with a 3 inch rigid nipple. The panels are exterior but recessed between studs. My question is, I have some 6/3 romex on hand and I only need about 4 feet of 6awg wire to power the subpanel. Can I...

    I'm in the middle of pouring a slab for a new freestanding garage and I'm running 4 wires 100' of #3 AWG THHN/THWN in 2.5" sch 40 from the main to a new sub in the new garage. So far I've run about 30' underground from the new garage and up the side of the single level existing house about 10'...

    I'm putting a new down flow air handler in my house and am trying to get the wiring done asap. Originally had a 10kw heat kit which had a set of two breakers and electrician said would require a 6/2 run. Now I'm thinking of bumping up to 15kw or 20kw. If I go 20kw would I likely just do a...

    I'm running some 8/2 NM-B to a new pullout disconnect about 35' from my panel. My most direct route is definitely through the crawlspace. First question is does 8/2 qualify as a large enough cable to run on the bottom of joists or does it fall into the same category as 12/2 and require running...

    Hi, I’m going to install a sub panel in my detached garage and I would like to make sure everyone agrees I’m doing this the correct way and asking for any ideas for improvement. I’ve recently trenched from the house to the garage and installed 1” PVC Schedule 40 conduit. My main panel has...

    Hey, today I was running individual conductors through 40 feet of emt for receptacles every 10 feet. I ran 4 wires to the end, but pulled one back through the last two boxes as I only needed 3-wire for the last two. Anyway, when I pulled the one wire back I realized that the clear, outer...

    I am installing an Air Conditioner 60 amp disconnect on the side of the house and running it up and into the attic in conduit and then over approximately 50 feet and down to a 50 amp feeder breaker with no conduit. What is the correct way to wire this. I would like to make one unbroken wire...

    Currently used bedroom, but trying to convert a corner for hobby work and etc. I want to install another outlet and a switch for an overhead light. The room is on a 15a. breaker that shares with a bathroom light only. So I shouldn't have a problem with overloads. Although, when the house was...
