Electrical plans are very important elements of new home plans. After a house design is established, and the architect has drawn the floor plan and exterior plans, the next documents created are the interiors sheet, the spec sheet, and the electrical plan.
Electrical plans for new homes show builders and electricians where to locate lights, outlets, smoke detectors, carbon monoxide detectors, switches (three way, four way, timer switches), TV and computer receptacles, lighting fixtures, phone outlets, outdoor switches, meters, generators, breakers, panels, and much more. Electrical plans show which switches control which lights. Electrical plans shows also the type of outlet or lighting component, such as fan, recessed can, incandescent, fluorescent, track lighting, and other. The electrical plan also can include specifics on “smart home” technology.
A good electrical plan outlines up light switches so that you can walk from one end of the house to the other end without having to back-track to turn off lights behind you. Any special electrical outlets or fixtures that the client wants in their home are also shown on this plan.
