Any shortcuts you take can result in fires, short circuits, and electrocutions. The following is one of the most common errors that people make. We will also talk about what you can do to overcome it.

Not installing a junction box

Fail to install a junction box is a big issue. Other names for these boxes include connection and electrical box. They are affordable components that can safeguard connections and also take care of heat or sparks in the event of a short circuit. Introducing a steel or plastic protective part adds a stage when placing a fresh light fixture or outlet, but it is worth it.

While we’re on the subject of junction boxes, another mistake people make with them is installing one behind the drywall. It is no use having the box if it is not in the right place. You need to ensure that it is flush with your drywall. If you don’t do this, then you may expose combustible materials to sparks. If you have recessed your box into your wall too much already you can resolve the problem. What you need is a box extension.
