New Electrical Work in Bathroom

Bathroom GFCI outlet

Older bathroom don't always have outlets in them. There two ways to add a new outlet. The best way would be to run a new circuit from the main electrical panel. This way there will be no problem when using hair styling appliances like curling irons and hair dryer. Remember anything that produces heat or cold with electricity uses a lot of power.

This bathroom was only a powder room. The purpose of the outlet is general utility. For that reason the outlet was added off of the lighting circuit. A new wire was ran to the light switches. This supplies the new GFCI outlet 120volts of power. This outlet will be used for a night light and an air freshener.
