Most Common National Electric Code Violations
Many problems stem from new additions to the National Electrical Code (NEC), while some common mistakes violate codes that have been on the books for years.
Don’t Choose the Wrong Circuit Breaker
To help you understand which electrical protection goes where, consider what each type of breaker was designed to do and make sure to follow the national electric code
Standard circuit breaker
Circuit breakers protect home electrical wiring and equipment like furnaces, air conditioners, dryers and stoves. Standard circuit breakers are better at protecting wiring and equipment than preventing fires and protecting people. That’s why they have largely been replaced by GFCIs and AFCIs. There are only a few places left where standard circuit breakers can be used, typically for large home electrical appliances.
Ground fault circuit interrupter
Ground fault circuit interrupters (GFCIs) protect people in areas where they are likely to be using small appliances and where water is present. GFCI breakers and outlets have been around for a while, and most people know they’re required in bathrooms, kitchens and outdoors, but our experts are still finding home electrical violations, especially in these areas: garages, crawl spaces, storage/work areas in unfinished basements, wet bars (within 6 ft. of a sink), and sump pumps. And don’t forget that GFCIs need to be readily accessible in order to be reset. This means they shouldn’t be installed on the ceiling or buried under a hydro massage tub without an access panel.
Arc fault circuit interrupter
Arc fault circuit interrupters (AFCIs) prevent fires in all living areas where appliance cords are prone to be pinched or crimped, or chewed by pets.They used to be required only on bedroom circuits, but the National Electrical Code now requires AFCI protection in all living areas. They’re equipped with sophisticated electronics that can detect an arcing condition (like in a frayed lamp cord), which may not be detected by a standard circuit breaker until after a fire has started. AFCI protection is not just required for new construction; it’s now also required where branch-circuit wiring is modified, replaced or extended into existing homes.

GETTING STARTED CHECKLIST
Write a loving letter to whomever you’re renovating with for future reference and put a bottle of wine and candle away to light and enjoy a dinner with midway through! This could save marriages!
Work together on a budget and ensure you stick to it (spreadsheets are great for this).
Decide what you will do yourselves and where you need to outsource. Make a list.
Discuss together what design options suit all parties (contemporary, modern, rustic, shabby sheek, etc.).
Each room has a purpose, think about the who, what, when, where and whys of the renovations. Ensure you’re renovating for what you want.
Do you need to plan with an architect, designer or builder? Make a list of prospectives and questions that you want to ask them in a meeting.
How eco-friendly are you wanting to go? It is definitely worth investing time and energy into this (did you see the pun there?). Are you putting in solar? There are many new features that can improve energy, water and waste usage.
Home automation is a great feature to add when renovating, it’s also eco-friendlier and helps save on those bills! Not to mention it’s something to wow your guests!
Is your home safe to renovate? Does it have mould? Asbestos? Does it need new structures? Are the rooms of legal sizes? Etc. Ensure you do your homework on QLD Government legislative requirements for your home or office.
If you’re doing any renovations yourself, it might be worth completing a white card certificate, so you know, you don’t lose a finger for not knowing the basics.
