## SCHEMATICS – How 3way and 4way Switches Work

This episode goes further in depth on how 3-way and 4-way switches work. This is for those visual learners out there that need the logic drawn out so they can see the whole circuit in front of them. This ties in really well with the other 3-way and 4 way videos I’ve done. I...

## SCHEMATICS – How A Switch-Loop Works

For those of us that are more visual learners, I’ve made this show one that can be followed visually.  In this episode I draw out on the white-board how switch loops work, and how to wire them. The part that confuses most people when wiring a switch loop is that you’re twisting together a...

As electricians we use the term impedance more than we use resistance, as impedance refers to AC circuits – whereas resistance refers to DC. Resistance and Impedance are...

## Electric Current (Amperes/amps)

Electric current is one of the hardest things to wrap your head around when you’re first getting into the electrical trade.  Many apprentice electricians get confused with the difference between current and amps.  Well, that’s because people talk about electrons and charges and interchange the terms without really knowing what the difference is. Electric...

## Difference Of Potential (VOLTAGE)

Voltage is an electromotive force created by a difference of potential. Therefore the terms voltage and difference of potential can be interchangeably used. The term “difference of potential” is often used in describing the ability of an electric circuit to create movement. Just like in Physics you have potential energy and kinetic energy, in...

## RESIDENTIAL MATERIALS Apprentice Electricians Should Know

If you’re about to get into the residential electrical career path, there are some materials you should become accustomed to.

## ELECTRICAL ROUGH IN – Ripping Out Switches

After you’ve roughed-in all of your wires you need to start “ripping-out” all of your devices to get them ready for inspection and device installation (trim-out). Let’s see how we rip out single-pole switches.

## How To Wire For and Install A Switch

On Facebook: www.facebook.com/theelectricianu This episode covers the basics of installing an electrical switch. I cover mounting boxes, drilling holes, running 12/2 romex from a power source to a new switch box. From that switch box I install another piece of 12/2 romex to a light above. After wiring and rough-in...
