great video.

Manny Calderari says:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RzoTs2o3CJE&feature=player_detailpage Check out my video; Electrical connections tutorial.

Norinn Radd says:

How does this type of outlet differ from a GFCI? And what circuit analyzer would you most highly recommend for professional use?

Daniel Bishop says:

Wrong!!!!..The recipticals should be upside down where the ground plugin is on top.Because if the plug started to pull out and an object small enough fell through there and touched the ground,It ill be fine.But if the ground plugins were at the bottom and the plug started to pull out and an object small enough touched the hot then it could lead to a fire.

EurekaRecycler says:

Is the “Hot” side also called “Line”? Thanks!

dana miller says:

Hi Guy Brown,  Question; if it is AC 60Mz. why do we still call it Hot and Neutral?  What is the difference? I mean if it switches polarity 60 times in a second, it sounds like they are both hot.

Peter Staub says:

Hello Mr. Guy: obviously these are questions not comments. 1 can you use carrier’s non-programmable digital thermostat with carriers single stage 16 seer units? 2 will this void the warranty or make buying the performance or infinity series design features not work? so i am trying to ask if you want a simple original equipment thermostat do i have to stick with the comfort series. the final free question is are the higher level units built with better parts. thank you.

IsawThisAlready says:

Great vid.

Gustav Babic says:

Great video! However, I have a stupid question. Why is the hot side of the circuit the only side that is dangerous, while the neutral side is not? If AC current is truly alternating, then shouldn’t both sides be equally dangerous as the current cycles back an forth? Probably something about AC current that I’m not completely understanding?

Electrician Dallas Tx says:

Thanks for the suggestions you have shared here.

osmani enriquez says:

robert jimenez says:

great job man keep the vids comming 

Charles Tait says:

That is not a “plug” it is a socket! The plug plugs into a socket. The plug is on the appliance cord.

Michael Lemontzis says:

black on brass to save your ass

Chidam Kandaswamy says:

Well done. Thanks for basic information

nic wright says:

The reason the ground is supposed to be up, is so if something falls over the plug, it doesnt short out the common and neutral and instead safely hits the ground side.

Chris Nissen says:

thanks!!

phillip charo says:

thank you . these are so good.. really helps

Adderley Music says:

I love this vid learnt a lot black on br ass the save ur ASSP

Dan Flores says:

@Guy Brown i’m very interested in becoming an electrician right now and i’m super curious where to start. As to whether using your courses to become selft taught and build my own projects and portfolio for employers or to just get an apprenticeship. Its been hard on me to find anything in Texas because i’m not sure where to start. Feed back is appreciated.

Ransom Sumpter says:

I needed a good mnemonic for which wire is hot. “Black on brass to save your ass”. I’ll never forget that. Thanks!

MiWilderness says:

Black on brass to save your a**. I like that. Thanks for the electrical tutorials. We’re looking at doing some major electrical work here and this will help. Any tips on installing 220 economically? Our current breaker box isn’t big enough I’m told. Plus we have old electrical with just the two prong outlets with no ground.
