Electrical contractor 37 years. Electrical inspector 2 years
The other day I was working on a fire damaged house. It did not have to be but it wound up being a complete re-wiring of the house I think because of who and where it is. It is located in a low income area with many illegal apartments. This house was a single family house but was broken up into 4 apartments. The whole job is a nightmare. It was this past week that I come to the realization that some people should not be homeowners or renters for that matter. Maybe I should say cannot be homeowners. They do not comprehend safety no matter how many times or who explains it to them. You cannot put 4 ranges and 2 dryers back in. You must use AFCI. Cheap light fixtures bought on Amazon that are not grounded. No, you can't have a bedroom in the boiler room. This is a three bedroom house and not 7. My point is that most people know how to use a gas range but many low informational people do not. If they say gas stoves are unsafe or dangerous I can see why.
