I need some electrical outlets in my crawlspace so I can later install sump pumps, ventilation fan, and lights.
I assume a code compliant installation would create a new circuit breaker and put the new wires inside conduit or inside wall in the garage (where the service panel is). Once inside the crawlspace (possible wet location), the wires would need to be in conduit all the way to the outlets, right? Do the conduits and outlets need to be watertight, like an outdoor installation? Is it better to use GFCI breaker at the panel, or GFCI outlets in the crawlspace?
Although I'm pretty handy with minor electrical work myself, I think I'm going to get a few electricians to bid on the project. Are there any questions I can ask to differentiate the good ones from the not-so-good ones?
Anything else I need to know?
