I'm swapping out the living room fan

2020-07-04 03:30:08.545278+00 by Dan Lyke 2 comments

I'm swapping out the living room fan for some serious lights, figured I was safe turning off at the switch because I wired the house and knew my hot and neutral were consistent, forgetting that the fan controller had an always-hot. Anyway, the breaker works.

Working with electricity it's a good idea to double-up on precautions.

It's amazing how often some idiot turns on a circuit breaker when you're working on the wiring...
