The Basics of Home Electrical Wiring Diagrams


The important components of typical home electrical wiring including code information and optional circuit considerations are explained as we look at each area of the home as it is being wired.


The home electrical wiring diagrams start from this main plan of an actual home which was recently wired and is in the final stages.

A Series of Articles about How to Install Home Electrical Wiring

Your home electrical wiring diagrams should reflect code requirements which help you enjoy lower energy bills when you implement energy efficiency into your the electrical project design.

Wiring Diagrams, Device Locations and Circuit Planning


A typical set of house plans shows the electrical symbols that have been located on the floor plan but do not provide any wiring details. It is up to the electrician to examine the total electrical requirements of the home especially where specific devices are to be located in each area and then decide how to plan the circuits.



The installation of the electrical wiring will depend on the type of structure and construction methods being used. For example, a stick frame home consisting of standard wood framing will be wired differently than a SIP or Structured Insulated Panel home because of access restrictions. This electrical wiring project is a two story home with a split electrical service which gives the owner the ability to install a private electrical utility meter and charge a renter for their electrical usage.

Due to the separation between floor and the rental possibility this project was just like wiring two homes because there were separate services for furnaces, air conditioners etc.
