An electrical contractor that is well trained and certified to do work in your area is who you should hire when you are renovating or upgrading your home. Why do you have to make sure they know what they’re doing? Read on to see the full benefits of hiring a regulated company.
An electrical contractor that is certified is required to keep your home safe from problems like fires. If someone is not aware of the correct safety procedures, & the correct wiring protocols you could easily turn your house into a ticking bomb. If you are placing heavy electrical loads onto sub-par wiring systems it can be more than they are capable of handling. Whilst good circuit breakers will cut out your power, you are setting yourself up for trouble and possibly the burn out of your new power hungry appliances. Oh and would you trust an unqualified technician to make sure your circuit breakers are installed correctly?
Appliances have gotten more power hungry as they have been improved upon over the years. Electric showers are now so powerful they needed to have commercial grade wiring to cope with the power they require. If you use a new shower with wiring that was done over 15 years ago you can short circuit your shower and actually end of burning out its heating element. That wont be covered by warranty so you will just have to buy a new one. You may have to lift tiles and floorboards and also install the correct wiring so its is time to call in a professional electrician.
A professional can be found by asking to see some kind of proof that they have the right kind of training or state related certificates. Each state has different requirements but many companies can work in multiple states. You can also try looking online for a list of who has the legal requirements to work like this, and if they have a registry the public can look at. Sites like www.hvacinstantair.com provide a list of registered companies all over the U.S. Tell them your zip code and they will hook you up with a regulated repair contractor. If you would rather wait until you find someone via word of mouth, be sure they have the appropriate license and credentials, and not forgetting insurance to work in your state. Otherwise you could have to fit the bill again if it all goes badly wrong.
Having a professional do electrical repairs and work in your home makes it worth more in the future. Why would someone want to buy something from you if it needs money spent on it to bring it up to legal requirements? A survey by the mortgage company will show up any work that needs attending to and this will automatically lower your asking price. Some people panic in theses situations and drop the property price way too low to compensate. If only they had paid for the repairs from a proper company in the first place.
If you have had work professionally carried out you can point this out to whoever comes to inspect the property if you are selling it. It will definitely bode well for the sale and give the buyer more confidence in your property.
