Why You Should Hire a Licensed Electrician

At Expert Electric, we know that hiring a licensed electrician for both residential electrical services and commercial electrical services can help ensure that the job is being done safely and properly the first time around. If you have an electrical project that you need help with, here are some of the reasons why you should hire a licensed electrician to help.

1. Training & Expertise

Licensed electricians have undergone a series of training and testing standards that are necessary to get the job done safely and correctly. This includes mastering skill requirements and completing a set number of hours of practical work, and have learned all about the local safety codes for the province they are working in.

2. Quality of Work

Since licensed electricians have undergone rigorous training to earn their license, you can expect a higher quality of workmanship and results. Choosing to work with an unlicensed electrician can be a tossup between good work or an electrical overload that results in a house fire; whereas, choosing to work with a licensed electrician means quality work every time.

3. Guarantees & Insurance

In many cases, licensed electricians will offer some kind of guarantee associated with their work, ranging from guaranteeing to pass inspections or guaranteeing warranties on their work for a set amount of time. Licensed electricians are also insured, which means that you will not have to worry about any damage being caused to your home during the electrical work.

4. Safety

A critical part of the training process for licensed electricians is learning to be more aware of any potential dangers on a worksite. Before beginning any electrical work, a licensed electrician should identify all hazards that could cause harm to the home and its occupants. This means that you can rest assured that all safety issues will be addressed, leaving your home safe and secure.
