Specific to Ez-forums (the forums site)
The forum site is a public question and answer
discussion forums related to the subject matter covered by certain
sections of the
'Self Help MEGA'
websites' although our aim is to provide useful
information to questions asked, the use of the forums is provided
on an 'as is' basis without warranty or any guarantee of accuracy
in the information provided, use at your own risk.
Personal information is in the control of the user,
caution should therefore be exercised when using using the forums,
general information in regards to the area in which you live is
often required to give better answers relating to the jurisdiction
where you live but specific address is never required and the user
name does not have to be your real name.
The information on this website is to
provide you with the knowledge & understandings of how to work with
electricity in the home, and to keep your family safe at the same this
information is not intended on being a replacement for professional
advice and help. As a founder of this website and author of these self
help documents it was done with the intention of saving lives through
education and knowledge and not intended as a way to put electricians out
Rather the profession likes / approves
it or not, every day home owners do some of their own electrical work, I
am not here to promote the practice, I only acknowledge the practice is happening all the time. I have had comments before from people in the
profession that people like me are putting electricians out of business,
I would like to reply to those questions that people like me are saving
lives, and giving people the knowledge that will help those you would try
and do at least some of their own electrical rather this website existed
or not, these types of websites at least lessens the chance that they
will do something that could harm or prove fatal to them or their
Next I would like everyone considering
doing any of their own electrical themselves to evaluate their own
comfort level and their knowledge level before starting any electrical
project. As with me their are things I will not touch, one of those
things are gas pipes which I would use someone who is an expert
in that field to perform those tasks in the home, please know your
abilities and limitations; do not tackle beyond those comfort limitations
that we all have. Some people do really well if they are able to gain
some direction and knowledge, others no matter how much knowledge is out
there from places such as this website they will still not comprehend it
fully that is not something that diminishes you as a person as everyone
has their weakness and strengths, we just have it in different areas.
Electricians have to go through formal classroom training as well as
years of on the job training and experience before obtaining a full
I am not afraid of electricity to a
point, as a homeowner the utility power meter is off limits, and the
main master breaker cut off (likely a 200 amp main breaker if you have
200 amp service) at the service panel is off limits to me, as that is a direct connection
to the utility company that I cannot shut down on both sides of this, the power lines coming from the utility to the
home is also off limits.
I would like to point out I am not a
licensed electrician, but still maintain a broad range of knowledge on
electrical subjects, I have previously co produced and sold websites on
electrical subjects, my co producer of those websites was an electrical &
building inspector in the United States (I live in Canada), unfortunately
he is now deceased, during the many years that I worked with him
building electrical websites I benefited from increasing even more my
knowledge on electrical subjects. I hold a amateur radio license, and
consider myself highly technically minded, I have done some electronic
repairs myself but I am not an electronics technician and work in
operations side of broadcast television.
The poorer section of the population,
young families that are starting out do not have a great deal of money
and are therefore more inclined to do their own work including electrical
because when it comes down to it living pay to pay, and barely making it
to the next payday, feeding and meeting the day to day needs of their
family as well as paying the utilities and mortgage is always at the
priority and little money is left to cover the cost of bringing in a
Self Help websites do not exist to take
away the livelihoods of professionals, I hope that some knowledge gained
on this website and others like it that we will help families live a
longer life and keep them safe.
