You can only go so far with DIY YouTube videos until you need to call in the experts. Small repairs can often be handled by savvy homeowners, but there are a few major electrical projects best left for a licensed electrician.
Upgrading the electrical wiring in a home, whether modifying or replacing electrical wiring, can be very dangerous. The risks of poor wiring include electrocution and even fire. You could also end up with a failed inspection when trying to sell the home.
Don’t risk your family’s safety — call in a licensed electrician to upgrade or replace your home’s wiring.
Electrical panel work
Modern life is powered by smartphones, laptops, tablets, video game consoles, digital appliances, and other devices. An outdated electrical panel will struggle to keep up with the electrical power demands of modern day life. Eventually, the time comes for an electrical panel upgrade. The process is highly technical and risky for inexperienced installers. That’s why this job is best left for the experts.
Circuit installation and updates
The more electronic devices are in a home, the more outlets are necessary to power and charge them. If you don’t have enough outlets in a room and find yourself relying on an extension cord, then that’s a sure sign you need more electrical circuits installed, and possibly an upgrade to your home’s entire electrical system.
As you know, you can’t simply plug a ceiling fan into an electrical outlet because that’s not how it works. There are wires that need to be connected and homeowners could run into complications in their DIY installation project. For example, a gap between the ceiling and fan could create a constant vibrating noise.
An improperly installed exhaust fan, on the other hand, could release fumes back into the home and cause mold growth.
Electrical service upgrade
Licensed electricians are required to keep up with updates in electrical work. They routinely work with complex electrical systems and face a variety of electrical challenges, making them the best at what they do. So don’t DIY — call Blue Apple Electric for professional service.
