Understanding a Residential Electrical Plan
Below is an example of the electrical legend found on most of our house plans.
To help you understand these symbols, below is an explanation of each:
So lets look at a sample plan. After understanding the symbols, we can pretty well tell what's going on with the plan.
The electrical part of the plan and the symbols are actually quite easy to understand once we know what they mean.
Look in the Living Room section of the drawing and you'll see why symbols are used instead of labels.
The image above should help you see more clearly what the electrical is for this part. If the drawing consisted of nothing but labels, there wouldn't be much room on the drawings for anything else.
Notice the symbol outside of the Utility Room. This is the meter base location. Behind it in the darkened area is the circuit panel. By the note to the left of it we can tell it is a 200 amp service box.
Also notice the GFI circuits at the washer, and around the sink. The general rule is to have a GFI anywhere within 6 feet of a water source if an outlet is needed.
Look at the circle with the letters W.H. This is the water heater. If it is gas, it's usually noted. If electric, just the circle with initials. Very seldom will the drafter, designer or architect place more than a symbol for a water heater to show wiring for this appliance.
The dishwasher also is usually just the symbol and the GFI receptacle over it is just an outlet in it's general vicinity. At the dryer and range you see a 220 volt receptacle designated by the circle with three lines.
The rest of the house is standard electrical and can be easily understood if studied. If you want to learn to draw residential electrical plans, please click here...
