- Part 3: Installing Electrical Wiring in an Old Home
- Bob meets up with electrician Barry Driscoll, who is wiring a third-floor subpanel. The panel feeds air handlers, bedrooms, bathrooms, and an entertainment area. When the house was built in 1892, gas was used for lighting. Electricity was not used in the home until the 1920s. An electrical inspector from Cambridge, MA, looks at the subpanel for adequate size and proper location.
