Power to the People: Understanding Your Home’s Electrical System

  • Boston Building Resources 100 Terrace Street Boston, MA, 02120 United States (map)

Starting out with how electricity comes in to your house, and ending at the light bulb and outlet, we will go over how wiring works, and why sometimes it doesn’t. We will examine different wiring methods found in older homes and learn to recognize which projects you might attempt on your own, and which you shouldn’t. Changing a switch, changing a light fixture—some say it’s easy. Is it really? The class will combine show and tell, hands-on learning, and information you can take home to minimize some of the hazards you may have.

Peg Preble has been working as a licensed electrician in the Boston area for more than 20 years. Previously, she was an auto mechanic, which is where she discovered her love of wiring. Peg specializes in older houses.
