Summary: The new, 5th edition of BLACK+DECKER Advanced Home Wiring does more than simply make incremental changes to match new national electrical codes. It includes several never-before-seen projects that will challenge even the most experienced home DIYer. Some of these include: a step-by-step demonstration of the right way to wire a three-way switch in any situation; a closer look at new "available neutral" requirements and how they impact traditional wiring configurations; new information on weatherproof boxes and conduit; a primer on three-phase power; and a guide to 240-volt circuitry that eliminates all the confusion. These are higher-level projects, but ones that offer high rewards when they are done right. The latest home wiring products and techniques are also featured in this new edition. If you already have a good understanding of the basics of home wiring and electrical systems, this is the book you need to take your game to the next level.--Provided by publisher.
