Code Check Electrical 8th Edition is a field guide to common code issues in residential electrical installations. It is based on the 2017 National Electrical Code (NEC). Significant changes in the 2017 NEC and the 2014 NEC are highlighted throughout the text and summarized on p.31, so this book is current for areas using either the 2014 or 2017 NEC. Before beginning any electrical project, check with your local building department to determine the code edition used in your area. In addition to a model code, energy codes and utility rules may also apply to electrical installations. The smoke and carbon monoxide alarm rules here are from the 2015 edition of the International Residential Code (IRC), published by the International Code Council.
