I installed a 4000W patio heater and wired 240 Volts! YOU make sure to consult a licensed electrician for all your local codes and regulations!

  • Ok BOOMers! Just make sure to do this kind of electrician work, consult with your local regulations and licensed specialists before setting your house on fire! I might be missing things here or there in my process... hopefully not!! And see my video at @Mehditation on how I chose the heater: roworld.info/done/video/s6rLoHe7qrqFo7w

  • As a certified Electrician i can point out many errors that would not pass inspection. No bushings on the end of your MC cable and not cutting it with a proper MC splitter is the first thing to get called out. Your installation on the heater side actually looks ok (if not missing the bushing); but your electrical box connections were piss poor. That's an illegal connection inside your panel, you needed to have a connector with bushing in the knock out; your wiring in the junction boxes was cut to short, need at least 6" outside the junction boxes. #1 you should have cut a 16" rectangle in the drywall above the panel and ran the wire from the top and than screwed the rectangle panel back into the studs. Yea, what you did will work, but damn that looks like shit. I still love ya though :)

  • As an electrician, you only broke all of the guidelines we’re supposed to follow. Running mc is fairly easy and at any point the mc is cut, a plastic bushing should be installed so that the connector doesn’t crush the metal sheath and cut through the coating on the wire... also use two “one hole straps” with one screw in between to make it look nicer coming down to your switch!

  • As a Journeyman Electrician, this video makes me extremely happy. I often have to Google some things you talk about, and somethings just go over my head, but seeing you essentially do my job and struggling a bit was a wonderful feeling. Makes up for you understanding the technical side of things so much more than I do. Plus all the other videos involving you working with power tools... I've lost a bit of my hair and fingernails watching them, but also get a kick from them! Although I do hope most of them are purely comedic, because I'm a little surprised your hands are still intact and not completely scar tissue... I love what you're doing, and am grateful to have you as a resource and entertainment. Thank you, for everything you've been doing through the years. Never got involved in patreon before, but you're a good reason to start. Hell, with what I learn from you, I may just become a better electrician, which might generate a better paycheck, which just means subscribing to you would pay for itself!

  • there is lot of type of breakers to use .. i mean ... a type B 20 A breaker will pop open faster and soon than a type C 20A breaker . type C or greater usually used for air condition units that in the beginning of compressor need hundreds of amps . a type B 16 A breaker will open immediately but type C will keep longer

  • North american electrical items are so oldschool compared to the european ones. Blank wires, only single or 2 phases, screw terminals, badly designed power sockets and plugs, weird breakerboxes with live exposed contacts, etc.etc. Europe moved on from this stuff, that to us looks like electrics from the 50s.

  • This one time, my dad had a friend over who studied electrical work or something. They were working on putting a new breaker into the panel so the microwave would be on a separate circuit. However, he had the dang cover off the fuse box with the main breaker STILL ON just like here. He accidentally caused a short or something and caused a really big spark and fell back. I heard the battery backup in the other rooms go BEEP. I was standing nearby. Thankfully he was unharmed. And, we had nothing flammable close to the fuse box for the spark to ignite (it was a really big "scatter spark" kind of like from a firework)

  • I know you will probably not see this comment, but if you do, you should consider using red hats on the ends of every armored cable run. In the US (IDK about Canada) they are NOT required by code, but they are definitely a better practice. Its a red bushing that goes at the end of the armor so that the insulation cannot get cut or damaged by the sharp edges of the ends of the armor. They're only like ten cents a piece (less if you buy in bulk).
