Electric Wiring: Domestic
Electric Wiring Domestic is the definitive guide to home wiring to professional standards. This makes it ideal for serious DIY work, especially for letting or resale, and essential reading for professionals who are not trained electricians, undertaking the wiring work involved in plumbing, central heating, security alarms, television and aerial installation, and telephone installation. The handy format and clear, straightforward text have also made this book popular as a quick reference source for electricians.
Electric Wiring Domestic has been in print continuously since 1940. The twelfth edition has been updated in line with the latest versions of the IEE Wiring Regulations (BS 7671:2001) and includes a new chapter on bathroom wiring and a useful Appendix covering basic electrical facts and formulae.
