How much does it cost to run the electric wiring to a new home?

Depending on the size of the new home, it will cost between 1,500 and 3,000 dollars to run electrical wiring. The switches, boxes, and other materials will cost more or less depending on the number needed. <<>> On the average estimating a new home is $200.00 an outlet and $15.00 an amp for the service installation. At these prices you will get a qualified journeyman licensed to take out permits and a contractor that will stand behind his work if something should go wrong. Remember to tender the job to at least three different contractors for pricing before committing to let the job. The first question to ask the contractor is do you need a permit. If the answer is no, move on to another contractor. Every job needs to be inspected by an electrical inspector, your safety is at stake. Also when dealing with insurance companies, if there is no permit of inspection then there is no claim paid out to the home owner should damage be done to the home because of the non inspected wiring.

There isn't a good way to do that without knowing what you are building. Most good eletricians charge by the hour or a flat fee per job based on the type of work and working conditions.

How do you change electrical wires in the home when there is sheet rock on the walls?

Generally, you cannot change wiring in a home with sheet rock without significant damage to the sheet rock. If you abandon the existing wiring, which is technically a code violation, you can drill through the bottom or top of each outlet or switch box into a basement or attic and rewire that way. Replacing lighting wiring in a ceiling without an attic above cannot be done without damage to the sheet rock. An alternative is to surface mount new wiring and boxes. This adds significant cost.

When wiring a new home can the amount of electrical wire used for the home affect your electrical bill?

Not really. The amount and size of wire is governed by regulations in each country. Using thicker wire would produce slighty lower power losses but not enough to make it worth the effort.
