The 8 Most Common Electrical Code Violations DIYers Make

All switch locations need a neutral wire. This electrical code was mainly implemented to accommodate potential future uses. Electronic switches require a small amount of constant electricity and therefore need a neutral wire run to them. There are exceptions to this code, but if the walls are currently open anyway, don't make the next person fish in a wire. Do it right and make sure there's a neutral wire in the box.
