When to Call a Pro
Beware of handy men, painters, carpenters and others that 'are electricians too'. The National Electrical Code is a big fat Code and Safety Book, written to SAVE LIVES! Certified electricians are required to know the codes and safety procedures. I hope you call us to do your electrical work, but if not, please call a licensed electrician!
Besides the documented training required to perform electrical task, liability insurance is specific to the work you are licensed to do. I spend most of my life in the attic or under the house and I see sub standard wiring almost everywhere, I can tell immediately if an electrician did the work or not. I also am called to make 'corrections' when the 'HOME INSPECTOR' is involved, so chances are good you get to pay twice to get the same light installed correctly.
HOMEOWNERS, I'm sorry, I don't encourage you to 'practice' wiring in your home. There is too much at stake. I know the guy at the hardware store told you exactly how to do it, but DON'T, unless you have a CERTIFIED ELECTRICIAN supervise or inspect your work.
Here are a few of the questions that we get asked on a regular basis.
Why are the lights in my home flickering?
This may just be the lightbulb. Check that the light bulb is properly screwed in and if there is no difference, then replace the bulb. Is it still flickering? This is an indication that there is a loose wire which should be handled as soon as possible. If you can, try to not use the light until the electrician arrives as loose wires can lead to fires and/or personal injury.
How do I reset a breaker?
When looking at your electrical panel there should be one switch that is not aligned with the others. If you look closely it should show that it is in the off position. To turn the breaker back on you will need to push the breaker towards the off position first and then turn it back towards the on position. The breaker should click back into alignment with the rest others.
What is a GFCI outlet?
Standing for “ground fault circuit interrupter”, a GFCI is an extra safety measure to protect people from potential danger. GFCI are used in bathrooms, kitchens, unfinished basements and any place where the outlet may come in contact with water. The outlet has a mechanism that will turn off the circuit if it detects electricity going down the incorrect path, for example through water or a person.
