While we never recommend that anyone does their own electrical, we understand why you would like to tackle a few things on your own. However, there are a few electrical jobs that you should always hire an electrician for. There are many reasons as to why, but it is mainly for your own safety.
4 Projects A Miami Electrician Handles
- Upgrading Your Circuit Breaker
Your circuit breaker is within your electrical panel and it is what is used to power everything in your home. Most of the time, homeowners like yourself upgrade them, because they need more power for all the tech items in their home. However, other people do the upgrade, because they are constantly dealing with blown fuses and flickering lights.
- Adding Any Type of Outlets
You may think that it is super easy to add any type of outlet to your home, especially if you are simply replacing one outlet with a newer one that has additional features like a USB port. While it can be fairly simple, there is a chance that you will ground the wires the wrong way and that is a disaster waiting to happen.
- Adding Outdoor Lighting
We all know how important outdoor lighting is, but that doesn’t mean that you should attempt adding it all on your own. It is imperative that you call an electrician, because they can make sure the wires are grounded for the outdoors. Failure to do this can result in major issues, especially when it comes to water.
- Replacing Light Fixtures
Most of the time, replacing a light fixture can be fairly straightforward, but there are times when it is not as easy as it appears. The amps needed for the new fixture, or the wattage, may be different than the old light fixture and that can cause a host of problems when you are trying to hook things back up.
