Electric Patio Heater Wiring and Installation

I installed a 4000W patio heater and wired 240 Volts! YOU make sure to consult a licensed electrician for all your local codes and regulations!

    Ok BOOMers! Just make sure to do this kind of electrician work, consult with your local regulations and licensed specialists before setting your house on fire! I might be missing things here or there in my process... hopefully not!! And see my video at @Mehditation on how I chose the heater: hrhave.info/mate/gtmaoH6JrbeH0pE/video.html

    why wouldn't you put the switch closer to the porch? now someone has to go inside and into the garage to turn the heat on and im sure that heater will have little effect anyways considering heat rises and the heater is on the ceiling lol

  16. ElectroBOOM

    ElectroBOOMPrije 11 dana

    1) Switch is inside so when we are not home someone can't just turn it on and camp there! 2) That's why this is a radiation heating heater, not an air circulating heater

    It's a shame we can't use fuses anymore, they react in as little as 1/4 of a wave cycle, where as a breaker can take as much as 1 and 1/2 waves. Also if a breaker ever trips a single time it's impossible to know that its rating hasn't been changed and the more it trips the more likely it is to have changed.

    Great videos Mehdi, you always get a laugh out of me. You should get yourself an arc welder (stick welder) for high current testing. The older ones work best. You can short circuit the secondary of the welder and adjust the current with the transformer yoke on the welder. Stay safe mate

I approve of all fuse tolerance videos as the 10A fuse for my outdoors IP44 stuff can apparently take my 2.8kW pool heater, my box freezer and a few led lights for what is now weeks... Ok, the only wiring really not up taking 230V/13A in my circuit is the extension cord between my outdoors outlet and the heater.. It's only getting warm.. not hot. (safe as fu..)

    Rule of thumb: Always work in the panel last. You don’t want to have any risk of someone accidentally turning on the breaker while you are working on the circuit. Journeyman taught me that years ago.

    Another great video. Watching Mehdi build stuff at home is always a treat. But as a former Aussie Electrician, I always cringe when looking at American wiring. The hideousness of all metal unsheathed gear that makes everywhere it goes look like a military bunker. The switches, sockets and switchboards here look so much nicer once wired in, it's incredbile.

    I didn't look through comments but a regular breaker doesn't protect you it protects the correct rated wire from burning up so 10ga wire needs a 30 Amp breaker to protect the 10ga wire if you could connect 12ga wire to the end of the wires and run 25 amps in example thru the circuit the 12ga wire could burn up and the breaker wont trip until it dead shorts if it ever dead shorts before your house is burned down also some breakers get damaged over time and stay locked into the on position and you can weld the copper wires to grounded steel and never open ive seen it in person its scary and replace breakers over time

    also .. the breaker does not trip without groud wire to return to the source, FOR 240V LOAD..GROUND WIRE GOES TO SHARE NEUTRAL/GROUND BAR ...and i question..how do the sourcE trip our breakers ??? good mystery...is there someone behind the substation looking at the screen...and sending a signal to trip your breaker..or its all MYSTERIES FORCE THAT CAN'T BE SEEN...
