Electrical work is not to be taken lightly due to the risks involved. Faulty wires can cause fires, live wires can shock you, and an overloaded circuit can cause your whole electrical system to trip. Because of the number of dangers involved with electrical wiring, household circuits require special inspections to ensure that everything is safely operating. Needing to pass inspection? Have your wiring done with the expertise of a licensed electrician!
When doing electrical DIY, the risk of hurting yourself is high. Ladder falls, life-threatening electric shocks and sharp tools are all part of the risk. If you have kids or pets, this job will be even harder if they are around to distract you, and they could potentially harm themselves in the process too. On the other hand, electricians have safety checkpoints to ensure that their job has been done correctly and prevent potential dangers. They are also highly trained and skilled in their profession and are able to spot (and negate) potential danger before the average homeowner could.
Besides the benefit of safety, there are several reasons why you should hire an electrician:
Being an electrical technician requires a lot of experience to detect issues and solve problems safely and efficiently. You must be able to identify potential risk areas, find the most effective solutions, and know what is available in the current market. Electricians will be able to pinpoint problem areas that you might have missed, as their years of experience in diagnosis and repair can help get the job done more efficiently. Home owners don’t have the range of specialized knowledge that electricians have, and so most end up frustrated with unresolved issues, while wasting time and wasting money.
Electricians can offer the latest (and greatest) technology! Being actively involved in the industry means that they are up to date with new trends, and will be able to offer a range of products and services. For example, at Art Plumbing, AC & Electric we offer advanced risk-detection technology, such as thermal image inspections for detecting faults that are invisible to the naked eye. We also offer surge protection for the whole house, eliminating the risks that come with voltage spikes. We are also able to assess your home and give you advice on indoor and outdoor lighting solutions, and different types of electrical repairs needed for your home.
Having your house correctly wired the first-time can prevent problem areas from arising, which will in turn prevent more repairs bills over time.
Professionals are insured, which means that they are accountable for any loss/damage caused through faulty wiring. Doing it yourself (or having a friend do it for you) without a permit can cause problems in the future if something goes wrong. Who will be accountable for the loss or damages? Hiring a licensed, insured and experienced electrician means you can relax knowing that you are properly covered.
Without the right knowledge trying to fix anything on your own will take more time than it would for someone who actually knows what they are doing.
