Whether your lights are flickering or you need to install a few new outlets in your home, you might be tempted to tackle the project on your own. You’ve watched a few videos, read some books, and consider yourself pretty handy. What could go wrong?
The answer to that question is simple: A lot!
Even if you are a self-proclaimed DIY expert and you’ve done tons of research, unless you are actually experienced, electrical work is best left to a professional. Why? – Keep on reading to find out five reasons why you should hire a licensed and experienced electrician and contractor for your electrical needs.
If there were only one reason why you should hire a professional electrician, safety would be it. While electricity certainly makes life more convenient, it can be extremely dangerous. Even if it’s something that seems as simple as installing a new outlet, you could put yourself at risk of a serious injury if you try to do the job yourself. For example, connecting the wrong wires could result in electrocution, or a faulty connection could spark a fire.
Don’t put your safety at risk! A licensed electrician will not only have the necessary experience, but will also take every precaution to ensure that the job is completed safely.
When installing electrical wiring, strict codes must be adhered to. These codes are designed to ensure the safety of anyone who is within close proximity to the wiring, including those who reside in your home, and your neighbors.
Failure to adhere to these codes could result in serious injuries. Furthermore, if you happen to be lucky enough to avoid safety issues, not following electrical codes may detract from the value of your home. For instance, if you were to sell your house in the future and an inspection revealed that your electrical system was not up to code, a potential buyer may offer significantly less than you are asking – if they decide to make an offer at all.
A professional electrician will follow all electrical codes, further ensuring the safety of your home.
Knowledge and Experience
No matter how many how-to videos you watch and books you read, nothing can compare to the knowledge that is obtained from a formal education. Licensed electricians must complete a formal education. In fact, they cannot be licensed unless they have completed the necessary education. Additionally, a professional electrician will have hands-on experience that can be applied to the work that you need to have done.
With a formal education and hands-on experience, a professional electrician will have the knowledge that is necessary to ensure your electrical needs are safely met.
Problem Solving Skills
Even if you consider yourself very good at troubleshooting, you may not be able to find the answers when an electrical problem arises. Because of the advanced knowledge and experience a qualified electrician has, a professional will be better able to diagnose any issues.
Thanks to their advanced problem solving skills, a licensed electrician will be able to save you a lot of time and money; not to mention headaches.
You might assume that you’ll save yourself some money by trying to DIY your electrical work; however, that usually isn’t the case.
If you end up making a mistake or buying the wrong materials, you could end up spending a lot more than you would have it you hired a professional in the first place. By hiring an electrician or a contractor, you’ll not only save money in the long run, but you’ll also save valuable time. The job will be completed much faster so you can start enjoying the benefits sooner; plus, you won’t have to worry about spending your valuable time on doing the job yourself.
When it comes to electrical work, you want to make sure that the job is done safely, responsibly, efficiently, quickly, and affordably. That’s exactly why you should hire a reputable electrician.
