Peace of Mind Home Inspections

 

Seeing Double

Often in older electrical panels. the home inspector finds a condition known as double-lugging; where two electrical wires are connected to a single screw/lug… usually done by a wannabe electrician.

Double-Lugging 101
When two wires are secured under one screw, one of the wires might be loose… especially if there were two different wire sizes used.

If a wire becomes loose, it can arc and cause a spark… and/or with a loose connection the wires can over-heat and start an electrical fire.
