Overview

‘Electricity & Household Wiring – What You Need to Know’ describes the way electrical service is delivered, and the way a structure properly receives, distributes and manages electrical power. It provides you with the background to understand how and why the electrical systems in your structure do or should function, assists you in understanding your electrical system, and gives you a firm foundation in how domestic electrical power is safely provided. It will allow you to evaluate your electrical systems with a knowledgeable eye as to what might be an incorrect or even possibly dangerous condition, and prepare you for talking to and understanding an electrician should you ever need one.

The book provides an overview of the Electrical Grid, how your structure or property relates to it and the electrical connection it has with it, standard safety equipment and how it protects you and your structure, the various kinds of wiring you might have in your structure, and how to evaluate them in terms of condition, safety and suitability.

The purpose of this book is to provide you with an introduction to the general subject of electricity in a residential or small rural environment, and to serve as a consolidated, condensed source for this kind of information. It is a companion book to other Urban & Rural Homestead Survival Guides. Other books in the series provide in depth information that compliments the general information in this and other introductory volumes.

Meet the Author

Donald Worthington has a degree in electrical engineering, and has spent many years practicing the skills contained in the Urban & Rural Homestead Survival Guides. Raised in a rural environment in Washington State, he started working for an electrical and plumbing contractor when he was sixteen. Following college, where he also studied forest management, and a military assignment, he has lived and worked in many parts of the world, pursuing a career in high tech and computer engineering, while focusing on self-reliance and sustainability. He is the founder and a principal contributor of CurmudgeonCookery.com, a website that promotes these principals while adding knowledge, tools, tips and techniques for not just surviving, but flourishing in the environment, while also providing insights and a lighter look at how people, “curmudgeons,” have accomplished these things during their lives.
