Many homeowners don’t know why they should hire a licensed electrician for all the electrical work needed in their home. When it comes to electricity, your family’s safety and compliance with local regulations are important, and only a trained and experienced professional will be able to do the job properly. The following discusses the eight key benefits from hiring a licensed electrician.
Helps Ensure Safety
Licensed electricians have training and knowledge regarding electrical safety issues. They are required to comply with local code and regulations for residential electrical work. An unlicensed technician will not be as skilled or knowledgeable. Working with a licensed electrician helps ensure your property is protected and your family is safe.
Higher Home Resale
When you’re building a home, wiring your new home will require a permit that only a licensed electrician can obtain. If you are planning to sell your house in the future, this permit must be included in the real estate disclosure. A home with electrical work properly done by a licensed electrician, such as the installation of an emergency standby generator, will have a higher home resale value.
Liability for Unforeseen Events
If a technician is injured while doing electrical work at your home, who will be responsible for the costs of medical treatment? Who is responsible if the work performed damages your home? One way to help ensure you minimize your liability is by hiring a licensed electrician.
Work Done Properly the 1st Time
Some homeowners consider a circuit breaker tripping frequently a minor problem. Unfortunately, it can be a sign that an electrical fire is more likely. A licensed electrician will be able to diagnose the problem relatively quickly and perform the repairs or upgrades necessary to fix the problem the first time, giving you peace of mind.
