Why It’s Important to Hire a Licensed Electrician

Electrician

When you need something done to the electrical system of your home, it’s important to hire a licensed electrician. There are several reasons these are not do-it-yourself projects.

Safety

Working with electricity can be dangerous if you aren’t a licensed electrician. When you don’t know what you’re doing, the result can be short circuits, fires and getting electrocuted. Your homeowner’s insurance policy likely won’t cover damage to your home if electrical work isn’t performed by a licensed electrician.

Liability Insurance

Licensed electricians carry general liability insurance. This means that if they don’t do the job right and damage results, their insurance will cover it. An electrician that isn’t licensed doesn’t carry liability insurance, so if they mess up the job you’re going to have to pay out of pocket for any resulting problems. Most licensed electricians are also bonded, so they need to do the job right or get your money back.

Better Use of Time

Licensed electricians have spent years learning their craft. This includes ongoing education. Watching a YouTube video about how to fix an electrical problem simply can’t replace actual experience and knowledge. A licensed electrician can fix your problem efficiently and correctly in a way you or an unlicensed electrician can’t.

Cost Control

Everyone wants to save money. Sometimes, the desire to save money ends up costing more than if you had just gone about things in the right way. If you hire an unlicensed electrician, they may leave the job unfinished or do it wrong. You’ll have to pay a licensed electrician to fix any problem.
