Electrical emergencies are one of the scariest encounters you can have in your home. Whether it is a sparking outlet or a full-blown electrical fire, chances are you will reach out to the first person you come across to help you mitigate the problem. However, simply calling on the nearest electrical contractor may not be the best course of action. It is judicious for homeowners to seek the services of a licensed electrician exclusively, especially during emergencies, if you want to avoid a host of trouble down the road.
Jonathon here. I am currently completing my electrical apprenticeship and I have to say, it has been a challenge. Before I started, I didn’t realise that there was so much involved in wiring a house or building. Safety, efficiency, aesthetics and costs all have to be taken into account. My boss is so patient. One customer asked us to leave electrical wires exposed because he wanted an “industrial effect”. My boss explained that it would be illegal and they compromised. I have really learnt that electrical installation is one area in which people should not take short-cuts or undertake home handiwork. This blog should help you to gain a little more insight into electrical installation and its intricacies. I hope you find it enlightening. Thank you for stumbling into my corner of the blogosphere.
