Why You Should Only Hire a Professional for Your Electrical Work

why-you-should-only-hire-a-professional-electricianAt Dalton PHC, we’ve been providing exceptional heating, cooling, and plumbing services to our clients for years, and soon will be introducing our electrical services in Waverly, IA and beyond. In the meantime, we want to stress just how important it is that you only trust a professional for this type of work.

As you may already be very well aware of, in order to maintain optimal electrical safety, it’s vital that you not attempt jobs of this caliber on your own. You could do more harm than good—plus you may injure yourself or create an undue fire hazard. Instead, you should rely on the services of a licensed, professional electrician for whatever your residential electrical needs may be. What do get though, when you hire a licensed professional?

Liability Coverage

First off, do you think your homeowner’s insurance will cover a house fire that you caused on your own, during your very well-intentioned DIY electrical project? We have a very good idea that no, they won’t. Additionally, if you accidentally injure yourself or another person, you are financially liable for the medical bills. However, if you have a licensed professional on the job, they are covered by their company.

Safety First

Safety goes hand-in-hand with liability. Not only are professionals covered for safety hazards, but they know how to avoid them to begin with. Professionals are required to follow safety regulations set forth by the industry. This keeps them safe, you safe, and gives you a peace of mind that your home is in a great condition after the electrical job is complete.

Building Codes and Current Technologies

When you make any adjustments to the construction of your home, it requires the approval of a building inspector. Not only would it be inconvenient to get through an entire remodeling project to have a building inspector inform you that you violated a building code but it could be very costly as well. Our professional technicians are required to keep up-to-date with these building codes as well as current technologies to help us do our job accurately and efficiently.

No Problems Selling Your Home

If you ever plan to sell your home in the future, you’ll find that you run into problems if you made any structural changes without the right approval. The wiring in your home requires a permit, and when you sell your house you need to disclose in the real estate documents whether you have a permit or not. Not having such permit impacts the value of your property.

A Job Done Right the First Time

Expert electricians have a vast knowledge and experience when it comes to completing residential electrical jobs. This means that when they come to complete a job, they’ll get it done right the first time. You won’t have to worry about mistakes and delays when you have the right electrical team on your side–our team.
