  • 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: itworlds.info/round/g6mcnamQsLiDpIw/video

  • I was slightly terrified when I saw he was drawing around 100 amps, the breaker didn’t pop, and then casually said: “I’m sure that’s how it’s supposed to be” and moved on.

  • infrared because it heats objects, as opposed to natural gas or electric heater only heating the air and then the air heating up the people.... with heat dissipation outdoors, infrared is better.

  • There are different categories of breakers for how much current you need for them to trip. Most houses in Australia have a C type circuit breakers installed in which need 7.5 times the rated current to trip instantly.

    Connor LightConnor LightMese fa
  • i have found that living in a country that has incredibly high humidity and heat, the breakers tend to get very twitchy when they sweat - if you want to up the reaction time, try heating the breaker and spraying it with a fine mist of water a few times and then repeat the tests you were doing. Obviously this is not considered a safe, regulatory test method, but it does work! wear rubber gloves if you intend spraying water near your DB!!!!

  • 30A breaker for 16A load, seems like a bad decision to me. Sure, thicker cable is ok to use. No big deal just more money to spend for possible higher load device, but breaker breaking at 30A or 20A is kind of a big deal. You could go with 20 and when you get another heater switch it to 30A. Oversizing the breaker like this leads to longer switch off times. Sure, not that much longer but at these amps, you are going to feel every fraction of the second.

  • How did you add the MC flex connector when you started from inside the panel? Seems like you would want to run nylon ‘fishing’ sticks from the panel to the hole in the wall,and pull the MC flex ( with connector attached) from the wall to the panel. Personally, if I am using a metal switch box, I like to wrap the switch terminals with electrical tape to ensure there is no contact between the two. Are you planning on adding any temperature control to your heater? If so, which one did you pick? The only ones I have seen are over $500.

  • I have never seen something ignite under water what the fuck

  • Before putting the breaker in the panel turn it on and tap the bottom of it with some force and it should trip, I don’t know if it’s 100% fool proof but it’s just something ol’ timers tought me when I started being a electrician, hasn’t failed yet🤷‍♂️

  • Love Electroboom videos, but as a licensed, master electrician, there are a couple items not to code. But nothing too heinous. (Connector needed at panel enclosure, ground screw for EGC at J-boxes only rated for 1 wire, wire nut the others and pigtail to device. Heater disconnect to be within sight of heater, or breaker lock installed. and I know why there is an empty knockout in the 4x4 j-box. Been there...😁) Good job actually, especially fishing the MC/AC through the ceiling space. Yeah, it can be a challenge! Oh, "1-hole strap" is the term your looking for. Great info explaining circuit breaker trip curves. Many people (and electricians) don't realize that breakers are inverse trip devices. More current, shorter trip time, but not going to see instant results at 31 amps.

  • I realized something: While watching him mounting the wires to the wall, I felt so much more unconfutable compared to when he does stuff in his room. I knew nothing would happen here, but I also knew that this would end him fore sure in case the wires where live. Somehow we or maybe I developed an instinct when it comes to electricity. It's not the super high sounding volts that will kill you... When the wires are getting thick, then you know it's a zero percent chance only. _I've written that comment while stoned out of my mind and I didn't do any re-reading, so tomorrow I will read it again and so how much sense it makes 😅 _
