What to Consider Before Installing Telephone Wire – New York Wiring

Wiring in New York

Some people are building a new home and a New York telephone is needed. Since these phones are new and you haven’t had any telephones in your home before, you will have to get wiring done. You might be wondering how they do this. Let us teach you.

The first step of installing the wiring for the telephone is to know which type to use. If there was wiring already there, it’s just your best bet to use the wiring that they used. However, if there is no wiring for whatever reason, you’ll want to use EIA/TIA T586A. You’ll also need to know where to run the wire. Some homes that were built in the 1970’s ran above ground while other homes you can run the wire underground. Newer homes that are just being built will probably have breakout boxes and therefore the wiring will be underground. Above ground wires go through telephone poles and you might need the help of your local telephone company.

Despite which sort of home you have you will need to install a network interface device. This allows you access to the wiring and all that if you need to fix something. There is a screw that you just screw off. This just attaches to the outside of your home.

You’ll also need to install phone jacks. These New York phone jacks just mount to the walls and allow you to plug in the phones. When you do the wiring note that it has to reach these phone jacks. For all your main rooms, there should be at least one New York phone jack. Normally in the living room or family room there are a few of them.

So, what are some things to remember as you are wiring?

  • The first thing to remember is to install where there is low voltage wiring. If you don’t, there could be some interference with your telephone.
  • Use inexpensive wire strippers and when you are placing wire around a screw, make sure to wrap it counter clockwise.
  • For a complete step by step guide go to your local library where you can obtain specific information and detailed drawings to help with your New York telephone wire installation.
