Ultimately, the owner. Most contractors will include the cost of the temp power in their charges.

What is this "simple tester"? If you are using a proximity (induction) tester and are getting a "hot" reading, then I would suspect a loose neutral...
Are all of these receptacles on the same circuit? If you have fuses, replace the fuse since sometimes a visual inspection doesn't tell you it is b...
You may find it easier to use 1/4" drywall instead of 3/8". This may eliminate the need to adjust trim as Bill points out. You will still need the ...
Code requires the outside receptacles to be GFCI PROTECTED, not necessarily be GFCI receptacles, so the setup is OK. If the GFCIs are only trip...
The instructions with the fixture state "max 8 #12 conductors" That means you can run 4 12/2 or 1 12/2 and two 12/3 into this box. That's a little ...
That's the obvious solution. If a new bulb doesn't help, try this. With the power off, try raising the center tab in the light socket slightly so t...
You will need 8/3 w/ground cable on a 40A double pole breaker. Connect black to black, red to red, etc.
If by double switch you mean a breaker that has two handles and takes up two spaces, then this is a 220V heater. You may be able to use a 110 heate...
Remove the wire from the fused screw and replace in a new hole. This shouldn't be a breaker issue based on your description. Do your work in the pa...
With the power off, switch the wires on the brass screws (two black or one each red and black). Changeover done.
Those are classic signs of a loose neutral. Check where this circuit originates for a loose wire on the neutral buss.
Assuming you are really checking between hot and neutral, what you describe is indicative of a lost neutral. Check all your connections at the swit...
The nameplate on the compressor should state what the minimum wire size should be (minimum circuit ampacity).
Have you checked for any tripped breakers? Cycle them all the way off then back on. If things are still not working, contact your power company and...
as long as the existing citcuit isn't already grossly overloaded. The numbers Bill cites are a good rule of thumb, but for a dwelling, are not mand...
This is usually a case of a bad connection between the main and the buss. Unfortunately, it may require removing the meter to repair. Not something...
Are there other receptacles on this circuit? Do some or all of them not work also? If so, you may have a loose connection on one of these, most lik...
