Landscape lighting can work wonders for your home. Besides adding to the aesthetics of your home, these outdoor electrical fixtures also make your place safer by illuminating it at night. Proper outdoor electrical wiring is needed to make these landscape lightings, pump, lawn mower, or any other electrical devices work outside. Whenever you call an Atlanta electrical contractor to install outdoor wiring, he may place the wire overhead or bury it in a trench.
The overhead wiring not only spoils the view of your home but can also prove to be dangerous; thus, burying the wire is the most popular option. Before the contractors get on with the job of digging the trenches and burying the wires, they need to take into account the National Electrical Code (NEC) and all local codes set down for choosing the right wire and the correct depth at which they need to be buried.
Keeping the safety of your family members in mind, the following facts should be noted when the wiring has to be buried:
The wire must run all through the metallic conduit before it comes out from the trench so that it doesn’t get damaged due to moisture, other natural elements, insects, and pests.
The above guidelines have been issued by the NEC, but Atlanta electrical contractors should also check the local procedures before they actually start the work.
