Improper Wiring Junction Found on a Charlotte NC Home Inspection

May 11th, 2011 · No Comments


While inspecting a home in the Chantilly section of Charlotte last week when he noticed and impropper wiring junction.  All wiring junctions should be in a junction box and capped off.  If there is a surge or spark it will usually occur at the junctions.  If there is not a box to contain this spark it could land on something combustabile.  You can just join wires together with tape like you see in this picture from the home inspection.  This is a fire hazard.
