Who needs this book?

Anyone installing electrical wiring in a residence is required to comply with electrical Code rules to ensure safe and legal installation. If the installation will be inspected, (technically, all electrical installations, of any size, are required to be inspected) it must pass inspection, or the installer may need to rewire some of their job and pay for a re-inspection. This additional expense is often more than three times the cost of this book. Electrical Code Simplified is the only book that can help you meet this tough standard.

Clear, Straightforward Instruction

This book speaks clearly to the point. The legalese used in the Code is replaced with easily understandable explanations. Never dry, this instruction book is actually enjoyable to read.

Reliable and Proven

With this book you will follow time proven instructions developed over many years by electrical contractors. Electrical Code Simplified has been in publication for 50 years with a million copies in print.

Fast Answers

An exhaustive index helps you to quickly find answers to technical questions and relevant Code rules.

Full Coverage

Every step for partial wiring, or whole home wiring, is clearly indicated. Starting with the basics, like service size, the book walks the reader through each step in wiring installation. Code rules are also given beside each instruction, so that every detail is clearly supported in regulations. A large number of illustrations are used for clarity.

Code Regulations

Instruction books which do not reference the appropriate Code standards can be misleading and dangerous. Instructions within such books cannot be easily verified to ensure they are, in fact, safe or legal. Electrical Code Simplified books have always provided Code rule references to ensure that your installation is safe, legal and fully approvable on inspection.
