I think that RobFurn gave you a good advice. There are many things that you should know before you do this kind of a job. There are certain ways to terminate , extend or cancel a circuit or part of it. If you do not follow the regulations you might put in danger your family or any one who comes to the house and if something happens; not only that you might hurt someone but your insurance will not cover you.
