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.

Safety

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! Licensed electricians over at Fielack Electric will not only have the necessary experience but will also take every precaution to ensure that the job is completed safely.

Codes

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 of your town, 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 formal education. Licensed electricians must complete 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.

Some Information about Jericho

Jericho is a hamlet and census-designated place (CDP) in Nassau County, New York, United States, on the North Shore of Long Island, approximately 29 miles (47 km) east of Midtown Manhattan. Its population was 13,567 as of the U.S. 2010 Census.

Located mainly in the Town of Oyster Bay with a small part in the Town of Hempstead, Jericho was part of the Robert Williams Plantation in 1648. The English families who settled in Jericho were, or soon became, Quakers, members of the Society of Friends. Many fled from persecution in England and in the New England Colonies. They sought a peaceful existence as farmers. The name of the area was changed in 1692 from Lusum to Jericho after the town in the Middle East near the Jordan River mentioned in the Bible as part of the Promised Land.

Elias Hicks married Jemima Seaman in 1771 and moved to her family’s farm in Jericho, where he soon became a noted preacher of Quaker doctrine. All the Quakers suffered during the British occupation of Long Island in the Revolutionary War. The practice was to quarter troops in homes of residents, who had to provide room and board for them. The Quakers continued to protest the entire concept of war itself. After the war, peace returned to Jericho, and the neat farms and businesses began to prosper. A Friends Meeting house was built in 1788 in Jericho that is still used in the 21st century. A Quaker school was built in 1793, the Charity Society of Jericho and Westbury in 1794, and slavery was abolished in 1817, with Hicks’ help.

A post office was established in 1802, a cider mill in the mid-19th century, the first public elementary school in 1905, known as the Cedar Swamp School. Improvements to infrastructure were made with the founding of the Jericho Water District in 1923. As the population increased, a new elementary school was built in 1953 (Robert Seaman School), and a Volunteer Fire Department established in 1938. The population kept increasing until the last elementary schools in Jericho were built, the George A. Jackson Elementary School in 1957, the now closed Robert Williams School in 1961 and the Cantiague School in 1963. When the Village of Muttontown was incorporated, the cider mill was within the village limits. Because most Gold Coast villages wanted to remain business free areas, many do not have their own post offices or ZIP Codes. Therefore, Jericho Post Office which serves this area of Muttontown is displayed as the official USPS mailing address and leads to the misconception that the cider mill is in Jericho.
