Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This revised edition of Code Check Electrical has been completely updated to the 2014 National Electrical Code (which will be released in September 2013) and the 2012 International Residential Code. Spiral bound with durable, laminated pages, this reliable resource clearly details how to avoid the most common electrical violations while stressing the central safety principles behind the National Electrical Code. The seventh edition covers every type of residential electrical system, offering the most up-to-date information on grounding, bonding, service panels, branch circuits, GFCIs and AFCIs, switches, receptacles, and so much more. Over one hundred tables and figures make this the on-the-job choice for electricians, contractors, and inspectors.

 

The Code Check series is one of Tauntons most successful book lines, selling over 1,140,000 copies. Spiral bound, with durable laminated pages, the books in this series are designed to be used on-site for quick reference, ensuring that all jobs meet the highest safety standards while drastically reducing code violation call-backs. The Code Check series is endorsed by the International Code Council (ICC).

Synopsis:

This volume picks up where the original Code Check leaves off and expands on the electrical code section. Code Check Electrical clarifies the principles behind the electrical codes to ensure safety and prevent unnecessary violations. It also explains why electrical codes call for certain specifications.
