        @MaverickBlue Worth noting that the plastic connectors aren't good for armoured cable because the armor can't be bonded

        THE ANTI SHORTS ARE THE ONE GIVEAWAY I COULD USE! Oh come on ELECTROBOOM! I’ll never ask for a scope!

      5. nào ! chill


    2. Seth Tynan

      I absolutely love your videos!

      30 amp breaker is the correct breaker for the device you can only load a breaker to 80% of its raiting. Source is im a journeyman electrician in canada.

    4. Daytime Vlogs

      Lmao u forgot anti shorts where the wire clamps onto the heater itself

    5. Tintor HD

      You use the breaker to protect the wiring and not the device

    6. Izan Robles

      It would be great to see a new Tesla Tower, made step by step

    7. Nathan Rodgers

      An electrical engineer is not an electrician, so that's why he misses some the things that you guys think are obvious.

    8. Goat Sinker

      You guys use black and red colored wires..... Looks like you have DC powered household. 😆😆

      What country is this in ive never seen of half of this stuff

    13. Vincenzo Marra

      A breaker's purpose is to protect the wiring inside of the walls. That's it. It doesn't protect idiots from causing a fire using 16 gauge extension cords on a 30 amp breaker

    14. Kriste Isopahkala

      Why cannot the outlet be rated for higher current?

    15. Cdev Lentil

    16. Georgy Farniev

      Is there something different from DIN rail in Canada?

    17. HighVoltageMadness2300

      Our house has terrible wiring fire risk. The gfci outlet stopped working. The reason was someone before us had replaced the outlet and they had spliced aluminium wiring to copper wiring with wire nuts. The plastic wire nut connections had started melting over the years, there was even evidence it had caught fire at some point. finaly the connection gave up causing the outlet failure. I just redid it using a receptacle designed for aluminium wiring and no issues.

      Love those metal boxes and open contacts in your installation - you would go to jail for trying to purchase these in germany ;-P Nice vid, always enjoy

    23. Steve Jones

      That metal clad wiring is nothing like what is used in the UK. Here it would be armoured cable with special glands which is much more work to install.

    24. Dylan

      Wait, arent you and electrical engineer. Shouldn't you have known all this stuff already. If I'm wrong please do tell.

    26. Paradox Edge

      Man, whoever buys your house after you either have to move or you pass away are going to be dealing with a *lot* of weird electrical installations that can be dangerous to them. :P

    27. SancheZ

      North American electrics are so barbaric and complicated. I’m glad that I’m working and living in Germany as an electrician 😅

    28. Noah Reeverts

      its easy for someone that lives in a warm climate to shame people for heating their patio. Come visit Minnesota. In the winter it rarely gets above 10°F, and occasionally down to -30°F for days at a time.

    29. Jean Louis Ordehi Peña

      you miss the one on the lamp.....

    30. Lukas Sprehn

      All extra electricity contributes very minimally but increasingly to global warming. Come on, BOOM, you already know that electrical power comes from, among other things, the burning of trash, fueling generators.

    32. Davey Jones

      you fell for the pandemic bullshit? so... what have you learned?

    33. CraziMayur Gaming

      he opened the fuse box just to talk about it loll

    34. The Dark Flame Knight

      Thanks for the video Mehdi. Love your work. If you want a heated patio you go ahead and do it. Don't listen to the belly achers. "saving the planet" (or rather saving ourselves) is going to involve much bigger changes at the nationstate level, hopefully without shooting ourselves in the foot.

    35. matthew hwang

      Awww dang I was really looking forward to winning an anti-short

    36. Aeroscience

      1:16 That's not how global warming works at all, I'm honestly kind of surprised you said that... do you not know the basics? It's not a heaters literally heating the air that causes it to contribute to climate change, it is the fact that it is powered by emission of co2 from what would otherwise have been a stable carbon sink (fossil fuels). This is true weather the heater is gas powered or electric running of a gas powered grid. Now if you're breaker is powered off a nuclear plant or similar, then that's a different story.

    37. Rohit Nath

      Auntie shorts 😂

    38. Chris Goodluck

      Anti-shorts... why does north america use such bonkers cables? Steel-wired armoured cable would be so much safer and easier to install. Baffling.

    39. Всеволод Лобов

      hole in lever is for lock in OFF position with breaker lock so you can be sure that no one will turn it on while you working with wires

    42. KillerCornMuffin

      I appreciate that your more knowledgeable fans are chiming in with tips so you don't burn your house down, but do they need to be so aggressive about it? Sheesh guys, chill.

    43. 2E0PZM

      Why is it domestic electrical outlets n stuff in Canada and Merica!, look like they were designed in the 50’s ?

    44. Ghost Bird Lary

      ppl really saying that hes heating outside and burning the planet lol

    45. H maddox

      Breakers aren't truly rated for long term maximum amperage they are rated for 80% continuous load so basically 16amps for 20 Amp breaker so your breaker isn't rated for continuous max settings of your heater it will trip eventually or degrade the breaker with constant heat output generated along the wire due to resistance but it might be ok as you don't plan on having the heater on all the time and probably on for a max of a few hours every once in awhile so it might be fine just wanted to point that out to you also its dependent on the breaker specs I didn't get to study them in your last video to the full extent so it's unclear if they are 100% continuous rated or 80% continuous rated

    46. Fuze

      Would the melting wires not cut the circuit eventually anyway?

    47. Attila Futó

      8:04 I jumped 😂

      And here I thought anti shorts were simply used to expedite priest & altar boy relations.

    52. Kurt Farrugia

      Mehdi, if you are looking to install solar panels, I highly suggest to you APsystems microinverters with your solar panels. APsystems microinverters have an independent MPPT tracker for every solar panel and they have their Quad QS1 microinverter which is very cost effective and very reliable. Therefore you will be able to capture the most energy from your roof. For solar panels, highly recommend LG or Canadian Solar panels. Trust me, I have 12 years of experience in the solar industry. If you need any help, just contact me and I will be very happy to help you.

    56. Patje Huitinga

      Amazing how in US and Canada uses metal tubes for the wires. And metal enclosures for the walloutlets...

    57. Faizul Firhat

      Nice. You put the red antishort on your steel jacket. Also... Place the new outlet please :D

    58. nathee92

      woaaahh, In my opinion almost all of the equipment used were pretty cheap? or just shitty.. :P We use such a different standard on everything here in Sweden.. .:P

    63. TipoVitão

      Oh my, and i was thinking that everybody around the world were using DIN standards. Why do use rigid conductors and NEMA breakers/systems there ? Here in Brazil, every single installation using NEMA breakers/systems are being replaced for DIN /flexible conductors. Here we see a house with rigid conductors and say "thats freakin' old! Time to replace to DIN" hahaha!

      What is this electro boom video without mehdi getting shocked imposible

    69. Andrew Colucci

      You calculated the size of your breaker incorrectly. The size of the breaker should be in line with maximum capacity of the cables as mcbs are there to protect the cables and the RCD is to protec you. I. E cable can has a max of 22a use a 20a it will trip before the cable is damaged. Ha finally putting my electrical nvq into use!!

    70. Slifer

      Hmmm by the time you posted this video you probably bought a tesla

      Doesnt BC get all of its electricity from hydro....use as much as you want lmao.

      It is amazing that each country has different standard of what is important and in each country there are a lot of people saying that it is SO important that their standard code is followed, otherwise everyone will certainly die. And the people saying the code is important usually have no clue of the real reasons for them.

      If the rating is 50Amps, then you have (NO ISSUES) as what is to be "RATED" is the wire that feeds it and the breaker which was correct. The fact the actual receptacle can take 50amps+ just means at a 30amp breaker "POP" situation, the outlet is nowhere near the damage rating point of 50+amps it is rated to. I think you have a bunch of people not reading the NEC codes correctly. Just because a receptacle is rated at "X 30 AMPS" doesn't mean you have to use "X 30 AMPS" if you already have or can insert "Y" 50 AMPS which can handle even more amperage. The main thing is the feed wire rating and breaker amperage rating is rated for whatever is plugged into said receptacle.. The receptacle is again, along for the ride just like the wire. For instance... If you wished to run a 6ga wire to your heater rated at 50amps-60amps instead of the 10ga wire you did run, yes the "WIRE" at 6-2 or 6-3 is rated for 60amp (MAX) breaker, by using the 30 amp breaker instead just means the wire can handle the load of the 30amp thus is (PERFECTLY FINE) and can easily handle the load, overkill yes, but perfectly fine with "CODE" again because you have a breaker rated at wire specs or "more", it's your breaker amperage mated to the appliance you wish to protect. The wire just needs to be able to handle the "AMPERAGE" said appliance pulls, and is along for the ride just like the receptacle.

      Buying any products from the store has a good chance of contributing to global warming. You give the people who use the factories that produce CO2 to produce the product money which stimulates them to make more. Shut up

    91. Jackie Butters

      I may have pressed the Like Button, however I do not like that you are doing your own Electrical work, not only because your work scares me, but because you are taking our jobs, Durkherdur. Always hire an authorized and qualified individual to perform any electrical work. Don't try this at home.

    92. iCombustibleLemon

      US installations. its so terrible to see, if you work all day with EU regulations. like in the 80s!

      1. Andy

        Pfff, here in Mexico, at least in my home, we only have a couple separate breakers for the garage door and the A/C / Heaters, both floors are a single breaker.

      Ok so, if anyone is good at electrics or anything that would be great, I went to heat up my tea in the microwave earlier, so I stuck it in, shut the door and everything was ok until I went to turn on the microwave at the plug (I'm in the UK), my right hand was on the microwave not sure if it was the metal side panel or the buttons, and I turned on the plug with my left, and I got a pretty bitching shock on both my fingers, anyone have any idea what the hell just happened? The microwave was ok to use after that, and heated my tea up alright with a couple plastic gloves, but still kinda worried about using it from now on. It was pretty shocking I guess you could say
