It’s always nice to DIY home improvement projects when possible. You can save money on labor, and have fun doing it! There are times when it’s best to leave the work to the professionals, however. Here are four projects that are best left to a professional electrician.
Outlet replacement on its own actually isn’t the most challenging DIY project under the sun. If your outlet is currently operating without any issues, you can feel free to complete a replacement if you feel you are experienced enough to do so. However, it makes sense to call a professional when the outlet is displaying signs of underlying issues. If an outlet appears burned, blackened or even hot to the touch, that’s a great sign that your best move is to call the pros. If your electrical system has underlying issues, you don’t want to band-aid the situation with an outlet replacement. Instead, let us discover the root of the matter!
Circuit Breaker Work
Whether your circuit breaker needs repair or replacement, we recommend seeking out a professional electrician for the job. While they may seem easy to understand on the surface, circuit breaks are essentially the nervous system of your home’s entire electrical system. Any errors here can cause power surges at best, and wiring damage throughout your home at worst.
Wiring replacements are simply too complicated to risk figuring out on your own. While you just might get it right, there is far too much that can go wrong to justify that risk. The worst of these risks will be starting an electrical fire, which occurs roughly 51,000 times per year. Don’t risk becoming part of that statistic!
Installing Dedicated Circuits
During kitchen renovations, you may discover that your new appliances require dedicated circuits to provide the necessary wattage for operation. However, don’t waste time, energy and money with a complicated dedicated circuit installation. Instead, call your local professional electrician! A job like this usually only takes an afternoon of work and will likely save you a lot of stress.
