There are some aspects of electrical work that you may be able to complete yourself but just because you can change a light bulb, doesn’t mean you have the expertise required to install a spotlight. We know that the money you can save by attempting electrical work yourself can be very tempting but, some projects require professional assistance and can even be dangerous if you attempt them yourself.
In the age of Google and YouTube tutorials, we understand that the DIY electrical repair route might tempt you. But DIY electrical repair could cost you more in the long run, including your life. Building Vision London have put together a convincing list of reasons why you should put down your tools and call in an experienced electrician.
When it comes to electrics, the wiring may look simple, but actually it’s connected to a much wider interdependent network. For this reason, working with electricity can quickly become very complicated.
It isn’t uncommon for people to start work and find themselves getting into additional systems and circuits that they weren’t aware of. This is never a good sign, you can quickly make things much worse and cause a bigger problem than you had in the first place. This often ends up with you needing to call an emergency electrician, costing you a lot more in repairs than the initial job would have cost.
Everyone knows that dramatic events such as lightning strikes can cause a power surge but, not many people are aware that your own appliances can cause damaging power surges too. Power surges occur when the flow of electricity is interrupted, then started again, or when something sends electricity flowing back into the system.
If your home has faulty or weak wiring due to incorrect DIY, it might not absorb the surge of electricity when an appliance is switched on, this can trip your breakers and damage your electronics. Not only is this expensive to correct but it is also incredibly dangerous.
The safety of yourself and your family is usually always top of your list of priorities, don’t compromise this safety with hazardous and incorrect electrical work. Electrical problems cause tens of thousands of home fires yearly and faulty wiring or improperly installed electrical devices cause many of these fires. Fires aren’t the only issues that may arise from poor electrical work, electric shocks are also a lot more common than you may realise. An electric shock can land you in the hospital with major injuries and can even kill you.
A professional electrician knows how to keep both you and themselves safe, even in dangerous situations. They have the equipment and training required to ensure that all electrical work is completed correctly and safely which might just save your family’s life. When the stakes are high and your family are in the firing line it isn’t worth the risk.
When you work with an experienced reliable company one of the major benefits is having the professional guarantee for the work. This provides you with peace of mind that not only is your work completed to a high standard but if any problems were to arise then the company will ensure that they are quickly rectified.
Along with professional guarantee, electricians will also be insured. This insurance will cover both you and your property in the incredibly unlikely event that something bad happens either during or after the work is completed. You won’t need to worry about a thing.
Really, there is no questioning whether when it comes to electrical work you should hire a professional or not. The risks just aren’t worth it and the benefits greatly outweigh the costs.
