Wire Like A ProWiring is never easy, but if you own an old house or want to rewire a kitchen or new addition, there’s a good chance you’ll need a little extra instruction to get the job done. That’s where Advanced Home Wiring comes in. Hiring a professional to handle your total wiring needs often costs a few thousand dollars or more; with Advanced Home Wiring, you’ll keep your attention on your project and not on your pocket book. In this updated 3rd edition, you’ll find an all-new troubleshooting guide that helps you find safe solutions for when your wires get crossed. We’ll teach you how to upgrade a main service panel from 100 to 200 amps, and show you firsthand how to rewire your dream kitchen (although we can’t help you with the cost of a six-burner stainless steel range and granite island unit.) Other projects that are tailor-made for more seasoned DIYers include: DC solar circuits, updating grounding and bonding for your electrical system, and using diagnostic wiring tools.
