2. What’s Your Skill Level?
To do any electrical project, you are going to have to have some basic knowledge of electricity, how it works and how to work on it safely. Remember that when you tear anything apart, you’re the one who has got to put it back together. Don’t forget to draw yourself a wiring roadmap!
Most electrical repairs can be learned from my step-by-step guides. If you tear into a switch or outlet, look at it and scratch your head for more than five minutes, then I’d suggest calling a professional. This project is not for you.
