Home Projects that Require an Electrician

Unless you have years of experience completing professional electrical work, you should never attempt a do-it-yourself electrical repair job. Not only residential and commercial electrical systems complex, but they’re incredibly dangerous if you don’t know what you’re doing. Choosing the incorrect circuits or incorrectly securing connections can prove dangerous for you, your family, or your business. While some electrical jobs can easily be done at home, here are some common types of home projects that require the experts at LiveWire Electrical.

Installing Light Fixtures080828-F-6737G-005

 While replacing a light fixture seems straightforward, if you’re not confident with your electrical capabilities, you should always call a professional electrician for assistance. It’s important that the wattage is compatible with the amperage of your circuit breaker.

If your fixture’s amperage is too high, there won’t be enough power routed to the new fixture. In that case, you’ll have to have an additional wire installed from the circuit breaker to the fixture, which requires a professional electrician.

Replacing Wiringelectrician-729240_960_720

 Regardless of your project, replacing or upgrading wiring is incredibly complex. Whether you’re remodeling your bathroom or completely overhauling your business’ electrical system, you should always contact the professionals at LiveWire Electrical if you need to upgrade or replace your wiring.

There’s a much higher risk of electrical fires when wiring is not installed by professional electricians. Additionally, insurance companies typically will not pay for electrical fires that are caused by an incorrect installation by an unlicensed contractor.

Replacing Circuit Breakers296-1268138698MrGV

 Certainly one of the most complex electrical jobs out there, replacing your service panel is how you’ll keep your electrical system running smoothly. The panel is what provides electricity to your home or business, and a faulty panel can cause power shortages, blown fuses, and even dangerous electrical fires.

Incorrect installations can cause wiring to heat up, which can put your family or business in danger. While you might save some money with a do-it-yourself repair, it’s never worth it. If you notice that your circuit breaker isn’t running as efficiently as it once did, contact our team to schedule an upgrade.

Choosing the Right Electrician

 With so many electricians out there, how do you know you’re choosing the right one? There are a few signs you should look for when choosing your next electrician.

Licensed and Insured

 The first thing you should be looking for is if the company is licensed and insured. The license shows that the team is qualified to be working with complex electrical systems, and the insurance protects you and the company if there is an accident on the job.

Positive Reviews

 There’s no better way to find out if an electrician is right for you than to check out reviews from real customers. Customers are honest about their experience with local businesses, and a good electrician is going to have consistently good reviews and recommendations.

Years of Experience

 Like any service, you want a team with years of experience. An electrician with multiple years of experience is going to have the skills and expertise to get your job done right the first time.

Bobby was terrific! I got the appointment set up with him and he was prompt,
professional, and very communicative. Very reasonably priced as well!
I would recommend him to family and friends. He installed my Tesla wall charger
very quickly and perfectly and that’s all I can ask for! Great guy.
