Post How to figure the cost of electricity

cost of energy
The cost of energy is found by applying the formula;

Cost=T xW x Cost/kWh divided by 1000

where

Cost=price (in dollars and cents)
T = time(in hours)
W = watts
Cost/kWh =price/kWh
1000=constant

Example....What is the cost for operating a 200 watt lamp for 24 hrs. if the utility charges 13 cents per kWh?

Cost = 24(hrs) x 200(watts) x .13(cents kWh) divided by 1000 =.62
Cost = 62 cents

Your cost per kWh will be found on your electric bill

To find watts when amps are known......amps x volts =watts

This site has a nice listing of the important codes the average DIY'er needs to know about wiring a home. It follows the 2005 NEC code.

Among the extensive information presented are Forums with photos of "nostalgic" electrical technology, and photos of incredibly bizarre violations, installations, etc.

Changing a fuse in a fuse box

I know it sounds kind of lame but I've only just learned how to change the fuse in a fuse box. But I'm adamant that I can't be the only one who didn't know. Anyway I've also disciovered this link to a really clear demonstration and at the risk of looking like a spammer, here's the link. http://www.videojug.com/film/how-to-change-a-fuse-in-a-traditional-fuse-box.

These directions are UK based, so don't attempt to apply these directly in North America!

Smile Helpful hints for DIYrs'

1) DISCONNECT THE POWER before performing any work on these devices. TREAT the electricity with the respect it deserves. IT CAN KILL YOU.

2) when removing a light/Fan fixture-- Remove ONLY the wires connected to the existing fixture. This will make the re-install (nearly)fool proof.(even though they make better fools everyday).

3) When opening a Light/fan switch---DOCUMENT the location,color of each wire on the switch,BEFORE you disassemble it. Then draw it on paper (or other medium) for reference. Make note of the color of screws, if a three way or some other specialty switch.Identify the wires so you know where they came from and where they should go.

4)READ and understand the instructions that come with all devices.

5) Don't be afraid to admit you may be in over your head.

6) expect a few more questions from the respondants,This is how we find what you need to know.

7) Post back, so we know whether we have helped or not.
Many here spend alot of time trying to help you.

Just my thoughts.
Be SAFE. You only have you, and you can't replace your family. DO IT RIGHT.

Quote: jWhite:___Let me just add that trial and error is not the proper approach to electrical wiring. Leave trials to properly equipped testing laboratories.

Post questions in web forums, get books on electrical work, conduct web searchs for the required info, check with the equipment mfg about proper wireing methods, talk to knowledgeable people about the proper way, consult with your local building dept, etc.

And, when you go to do the work be sure you are doing it correctly.
____
BE SMART............BE SAFE !!!!
