How exactly does electricity work? 

When you think of the electrical wiring system of a house, you might know it consists of wires and circuits. These wires and circuits provide a path of leaving and returning of electricity from the main electrical panel to an outlet, or circuit of outlets and switches that operate appliances. The electric circuits in a standard house electrical wiring system in America is generally comprised of 120-volts or 240-volts.

Circuits and Wiring

House electrical wiring in the United States is governed by the National Electrical Code (NEC), which is published by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA 70) and is the basis all electricians must follow. It is update and revised continuously over the years which require continued education for our career electricians.
