Don’t DIY: 4 Critical Reasons You Need an Electrician

You have decided to remodel your home and are doing your best to cut corners on cost when and where you can. Repairing drywall, painting, replacing a faucet or putting in new flooring are all tasks that you can probably handle on your own. However, there is one area that you should not cut corners on and that is electrical work. Let’s take a look at some important reasons why you need an electrician.

Permits and Inspections

In order to get the job done, and have it done correctly, you will need to pull permits before starting any electrical work. When hiring electricians, be sure to hire a licensed and insured professional. They will be sure to pull the correct permits needed for the task at hand, especially because they know what types of permits will be needed for the job. After the work is done, it will need to be inspected by the county. This can be a nerve-wracking experience for the typical DIY-er but if you hire an electrician it will be their responsibility and not yours to get it right.

They Know What They Are Looking For

When hiring an electrician, you know that they have experience and have likely seen similar projects like yours before.Your home’s electrical system is a complex network and if you aren’t familiar with wiring you may quickly find yourself in over your head. If a problem arises while an electrician is working, they will know how to fix it and avoid costly mistakes that you may inadvertently make.

Get it Done Right the First Time

When hiring an electrician you are gaining peace of mind that they will be able to get the job done right and will save you time and frustration. Although you will likely have plenty of tools for getting small jobs done around the house, an electrician will have the specialized equipment needed to guarantee success.Another benefit to hiring an electrician is that they can test your house’s wiring network, allowing them to find and fix any other issues there may be within your system.

You Need an Electrician to Keep You Safe

One of the most important reasons to hire an electrician is to keep you and your family safe. When doing electrician work, you are handling dangerous wires and can run the risk of electrocution. Also, when you don’t quite know what you are doing you may create faulty wiring and run the risk of a short circuit, this can result in a fire in your home and can put your family at risk.You and your family’s safety is more important than cost-saving and cutting corners, hiring electricians will ensure that your electrical project will be handled in the safest way possible.

I have been a client of Advantage Security for years now and am always satisfied with the services they provide. I started with monitoring just at my shop and then was so pleased I also have my house being monitored. They were able to use the same partitioning board that was set up at my shop by just adding a new code for my house so I didn’t have to pay for the system twice. There prices are very affordable and there service is outstanding.

We had our old aluminum wiring replaced with copper wiring, as recommended by Dave at Advantage Electric. Without his professional inspection, we wouldn't have known we had outdated wiring in the first place. Thank you, Dave! Highly recommend this company if you need a certified electrician in Hamilton.
