What type of wiring is used in new homes?
There are many types of wires to choose from when wiring a new home. Electrical wiring can be made from copper or aluminium and suitable for indoor or outdoor environments.
The most common wiring used in new homes is Non-Metallic (NM) Cables. There are different wire gauges and amperages for different uses. For example, smaller gauge wires are used for light switches and power outlets, whereas larger gauge wires are used for high power appliances such as air conditioners or electric stoves. Cables are colour coded to indicate the gauge size and amperage of the electrical wiring.
NM is primarily used for interior residential electrical wiring, however electrical wiring can be installed in a flexible metal or plastic tubing for outdoor electrical wiring, where cables could be exposed to the elements. NM cables are designed as a permanent wiring solution for new homes.

When you’re building a new home, you want to make sure that everything is done correctly the first time. No-one wants to fork out more money to fix dodgy building efforts.
Here’s a guide to future proof the wiring design for your new home:
- Install multiple power outlets to power all electrical goods, appliances and TVs
- Create a lighting design with enough light switches to suit the needs and mood of each room
- Place the telephone cable and network cables in places most suitable to your needs
- Decide if you will need air conditioning, heating or ceiling fans
- Install smoke detectors and rangehood/exhaust fans in the kitchen
- Take caution with electrical wiring in the laundry, bathroom and kitchen. Any electrical wiring near water needs to be safe and secure to avoid electric shock
- Consider outdoor lighting and security systems
