A reputable and licensed electrician has had the correct theoretical and practical training that allows them to carry out their jobs in a professional and safe manner.
There are too many accounts of people wanting to DIY their electrical jobs where it ends in accidents ranging from minor electrical burns to more tragic outcomes.
While DIY projects may result in pride and sense of accomplishment, when it comes to electrical work, a simple mistake will have serious consequences.
Electricians undergo an enormous amount of training in order to earn their licenses and certifications that they need to do their work.
That's because mistakes could not only be dangerous for them, but also for anyone in the homes or buildings they're working on.
Even if you know your way around the circuit box, here's what can happen if you get it wrong;
One of the most common reasons why electrical novices attempt this sort of work is to save money. But that plan can easily backfire even if no one gets hurt in the process.
Poorly performed electrical work can spark destructive fires. It can also fry circuits, destroy fixtures and even damage major appliances. When things go wrong, the cost of repairs is usually several times what it would cost to hire an electrician in the first place.
Making matters much worse, a homeowners insurance will typically ask for confirmation that electrical work was performed by a licensed electrician before covering any damage from a related event.
If the insurance company learns that you did the work on your own to save a few dollars, you could lose your claim or even invalidate your policy.
Be sure you understand your full policy details before engaging in DIY work.
