How to Create House Electrical Plan Easily
What is A House Electrical Plan?
A house electrical plan, also called the house wiring diagram, is the visual representation of the entire electrical wiring system or circuitry of a house (or a room).
The purpose is to distribute energy that can be used to power the various equipment and appliances around the house through proper installation and operation of the different elements included in the design such as electrical outlets, meter base, switches, breakers, and more.
