Adding/moving electrical outlet

rocks911January 2, 2013

I need to install an electrical outlet higher on a wall than an existing outlet. I am wanting to mount a television mid-wall in a room but dont have an electrical outlet mid-wall. There is an electrical outlet at the base of the wall, in the usual place, a couple of feet off the floor. This is an interior wall and I can access the attic above the wall.
Is there a tutorial on the web that explains how to do this?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Pick up a copy of "Wiring Simplified" at one of the big box stores.

It will give you enough information to get it done and is a great resource for understanding basic residential wiring.

Good Luck,
