Projects That Require the Use of an Electrical Technician
Many homeowners shouldn’t attempt DIY electrical work unless they already have experience in the field. A licensed electrical technician at Brandon Electric undergoes extensive training and stays up to date on the latest electrical codes.
- Circuit Breaker Upgrades: Electrical panels will provide electricity to the entire home. As you upgrade appliances, it’s often necessary to also upgrade an electrical service panel to supply the appliance with power adequately. The job can be complicated, and it’s especially important to hire an electrical technician if you are adding a new living space or have an older home.
- Updating Wiring: Whether you are rewiring your whole home or aren’t sure about the condition of your wiring, this is not an area you want to mess with yourself. The cost to rewire a house can depend on different factors, but it’s something you want a professional to do. Signs you may need rewiring include buzzing sounds, power fluctuations, frequent circuit breaker trips, and an aging home.
- Adding Outlets: Electrical codes will require at least one outlet in the kitchen and bathroom be a GFCI outlet. However, many older homes don’t have this feature, so the existing system needs to be upgraded. Adding outlets can require cutting into the wall and replacing part of the wiring and should be handled by an electrical technician.
- Replacing Light Fixtures: Generally, you may be able to replace light fixtures on your own. However, there are some instances when you want an electrical technician. Many older homes may not have high-temperature insulation, which can be required by ceilings fans and lights. The ceiling mounting will also need to be strong enough to support the fixture.
