Some changes aren’t always better.

Categories: News & Stuff

This Table from the Florida Building Code has been removed, and replaced by the new calculation using 83% for residential services.  Just as they did in the NEC the FBC removed an easier way to size residential conductors and overcurrent devices by replacing it with a calculation.  All changes aren’t necessarily better.  The table shown not only gives us the conductors and overcurrent device sizes it gives us the grounding electrode conductor size also.  Make a copy and stick it in your code book for easier reference or Email me and I’ll send you a PDF.

Till next time be safe work safe, and Happy Birthday to our son Aaron who turns 26 today.

Happy Birthday we love you.

Jake
