    1. In most cases, shouldn't the wires just be de-energized? I know there are some situations when that's impossible, but I think it can be done the majority of the time. And it's an easy way to stay safe. http://electricalchristiansburgva.com

    2. Like you say, if you are ever working on the electrics in your home you should turn off the power. That will prevent anyone from getting electric shocked. I've been shocked before, and it really hurts. Not something that I want to experience again anytime soon. http://www.live-electric.ca

    3. I love how all of your advice goes beyond just turning your breaker off. It sounds like turn it off and wait a considerable amount of time before I start to do the electrical work that I need to do. My wife has wanted a new ceiling chandelier. The one we chose required more electrical power.

    4. Bryan is right, this advice is so much deeper than just turning the breaker on and off. It really shows you all of the things that you should watch out for. A lot of people don't realize that they can get hurt by something even if it isn't plugged in. A lot of times the capacitor still holds a charge, so you should always have a professional do this for you. http://www.bandlelectric.com/residential-electric/3033221

    5. In general, how long does it take for the circuit to de-energize. I really appreciate the idea of waiting until I have evidence of the all clear, before I start messing with electrical products. Sadly, money is tight, so I am not really able to turn this task over to an expert to worry about. This just means that I will have to learn important measures that will help me stay safer when dealing with electricity.

    7. I personally leave all of these electrical problems up to the professionals. If there is an emergency, I know how to shut off the breaker, but that is about it. Even when something is unplugged, it can still be dangerous and hold a charge. I'm glad that I found this article though. At least now I know that I am doing the right thing by leaving these repairs to the pros. http://www.live-electric.ca/electrical_services.html

    10. It is very important to don't execute any kind of electric work before the circuit is de-energized, secured and also tagged out.
