Wiring a modern home

Wiring a modern home takes careful thought and planning.

Some of today's residences range from 1,500 square foot custom homes, to as much as 35,000 square feet on some mansions.  Add to the growing size of homes the sheer diversity of electrical equipment that has arrived on the residential scene--such as home theaters, home automation systems, security systems and outdoor lighting--and you might as well be wiring a small commercial building!  Gone are the days of providing a few extra circuits, looping the telephone wire from room to room, or installing simple dimmer controls.  Today's electrical contractors must understand and manage a plethora of subsystems that include everything from emergency generators to lighting control systems.  Where there were once traditional switches on the wall, you now find keypads and touch screens.  Standby generators have become the norm, rather than the exception. 

Going green How we light up the places where we live and work makes a big impact on how we feel. It also makes a big impact on the environment.

The kind of bulbs, the kind of fixtures, the kind of power, and the habits we keep can all add up to a very significant greening. Start with the fact that a conventional incandescent bulb turns only around five to ten percent of its consumed energy into light, the rest goes out as heat. From there, there's no limit to how green your lighting can be.
