Are you frustrated by few outlets in your garage? Is the lighting too dim? Or maybe you are just looking to install a garage door opener and you need a nearby socket to plug in. If so, this post is for you. Rewiring a garage takes time, but through careful planning and work, you can create a safe, electrically modern garage that you will enjoy using for years. To successfully wire a garage, you need to follow these 8 big steps: Planning Acquiring permits Sourcing for professional assistance or advice Gathering the necessary equipment and tools Installing electrical boxes Running the wire cable; installing GFCI outlets and switches Adding a circuit breaker to the existing sub panelor installing a new one Conducting inspections. Make a plan The first crucial step is to determine your electrical needs. If the garage has dry walls, you should plan to: * Add switches and outlets using “old work” boxes. * Cut holes into the dry wall for each box. * Run new wires through the walls. Alternatively, you can use surface-mounted metal conduit with exposed electrical boxes for switches and outlets. If the garage has stud walls, you need to plant to: * Acquire “new work” electrical boxes. * Attach the boxes onto the studs directly in such way as to leave the wiring exposed * Run the wiring cable up the studs vertically, along the top plates and even across the bottom chord of the roof trusses if the wiring needs to cross the garage. * Avoid spanning or draping the wire cable across open space. Ensure you make a wiring diagram to guide layout of the wiring runs and boxes. To be on the safe side, ensure you have a 24-volt line alongside the regular 12-volt outlets to let you power 240-volt equipment. Obtain permits to ensure you are on the right track To ensure that you follow local electrical codes, ensure that you obtain a permit. The permit process also involves garage door inspection of both the breaker panel and your wiring work. Look for professional help Enlist a licensed electrician to help advice or actually install the wiring. This is especially crucial when installing a sub panel or dealing with the circuit breaker panel. A professional will evaluate the load and final capacity to ensure that he/she makes the right decisions when making the final connections. Get the right tools A proper wiring schematic lets you know exactly how many metal or plastic boxes you need, how many meters of wiring to purchase and for surface wiring, how much conduit (EMT) you require. The technician will let you know what the panel requirements are. You’ll also need to purchase: * Electrical cable *cable straps, connectors and staples * Junction boxes * cover plates for the switches * Electrical tape and wire nuts * Light switches * Receptacle cover plates Begin wiring You should only begin wiring when you are confident that you have the right tools, equipment and a schematic to guide the works. Wiring should be done in the following order: * Install the connection boxes in the garage based on your plan. When installing a garage door opener, ensure that you add a ceiling mounted connection box. * Run the connection wire from junction boxes to individual boxes then back to the sub panel or circuit breaker. * Connect and install GFCI outlets and light switches. Contact the professional, again It important that you hire a professional to make the final panel connections after you’ve run the wire and installed switches and outlets. This will make the inspection easier, as the electrician will know exactly what the local inspector will examine. Get it inspected It is your prerogative to have the works inspected for compliance. Once it is approved, you can begin enjoying you rewired garage.
