Electrical Wiring in the Home/Increasing amount of electricity being used.
Hi I have a question that I have a hard time finding an answer to online. I have a bunch of reptiles that have lights on them. They are growing so when they grow I need to get a bigger habitat and a stronger light bulb to heat up the habitat. The thing is with having a lot of lights and I know if I upgrade the lights I would put a lot of strain on the wiring and their could be a risk of fire. So my question is, Is their a way to upgrade the wiring to handle the amount of electricity? I donít know anything about this subject Iím not going to do this myself I wanted to talk to an expert first about this subject to see if thatís possible. And if so who do I call to help with this, I would think an electrician or is their someone else that specializes in that? Thank you for your time.
An electrician is exactly who you want. Lighting, and wiring for lighting, are among the things electricians install.
Prevention of system strain is contemplated in the design by the installation of current limiting devices at the service panel, fuses and breakers.
How much light are you talking about?
