Design Your System
When I’m looking at a client’s home, I often start by looking at locations for the outdoor electrical junction box and system controller.
Some of the factors in this decision involve the following:
- Electrical requirements: Ensure that the house can accommodate a 30 Amp breaker. This typically accommodates 300-400ft of cable and completes a typical residential home.
- Locate the starting point of the cable in an area that is best accessible from the power location. I want my cable power connection to start at a UL Listed weatherproof junction box.
