In the dark about how to take care of electrical problems--and worried about handling breakdowns safely? Teach yourself! You know you could replace a faulty receptacle, add a dimmer switch, or install a recessed light...if only an expert would show you how. That's exactly what this all-in-color book, packed with charts, diagrams, and photos, does: it gives you a thorough, yet amazingly easy-to-understand, overview of basic home electricity. No other manual makes everything from blown fuses to circuitry simple and clear, so that you have the power to take command of the everyday glitches that arise. Get the basics of working with wire, cable, and conduit. Do emergency repairs on breakers, blown fuses, frayed cords, and plugs. Test switches and receptacles; install boxes for light fixtures; and add outlets. Replace ballasts; mount track lighting; and extend circuits. Run cable through a wall, and to the ceiling. Every part is identified and every function described in a wonderfully straightforward way. All the fundamentals are covered--even how to select inexpensive specialty tools. It's the one book you need to learn all the basics.
