  • 3 Reasons Why You Need To Hire A Professional Electrician For Your Electrical Repairs

Every home will need repairs and maintenance at some point. As a homeowner, you will have to choose whether to hire a professional to do the repairs or do it yourself. For some, the decision is easy, because they think they have the knowledge to perform the repair themselves. Simple repairs such as fixing a broken tile or re-painting a wall do not necessarily require skilled help. However, more dangerous, complicated repairs such as electrical issues must be repaired by a licensed electrician for safety concerns. Before you start poking around your walls and begin watching countless “Do It Yourself’ YouTube videos, consider the importance of hiring an electrician.

DIY Is Not Always The Best Choice

In a world of “Do It Yourself” (DIY) solutions, some things still require expertise that can only come from years of training and experience. Home electrical problems fall into that category. One wrong move and your house could go up in flames. 

Only an electrician knows how to safely resolve your electrical problem.. An electrician will ensure that:

  • All appliances are wired correctly and at the correct voltage
  • The circuit breaker will trip if the system overloads
  • Appliances are up to code
  • Wires are inspected for fraying and damage

3 Reasons Why You Need To Hire A Professional Electrician


Electrical work can be extremely dangerous. Licensed electricians know these dangers and take proper precautions to avoid injury and risks. Improper repair or installation can increase the chances of short circuits, sparking, and other issues that can cause serious implications, such as a fire. 

There are a plethora of safety regulations that electricians are aware of that you might not know about. Electricians will not just come and address your repair needs; they will also ensure the rest of your electrical devices and appliances are up to code so you can have peace of mind knowing your home and family are safe.

Save Your Time And Money

If you do not know how to perform the electrical repair needed, you will most likely spend countless hours searching the internet for “How To” videos and articles. This is a huge expenditure of your time, energy, and money, especially if you do not do the job correctly the first time. Even if you are successful with the repair, it will most likely only be a temporary fix and will require professional assistance in the future. 

Most people make the mistake of putting their double AA batteries the wrong way—let alone have the ability to carry out extensive electrical repairs. Therefore, trusting yourself with work that requires expertise is an exceptionally careless and poor use of your time and money.

Don’t Forget About Permits And Inspections

When you put in a new kitchen backsplash or re-paint a wall in your home, there is no one coming to inspect the job to make sure it meets certain requirements. Inspectors do not need to come to make sure the new wall colour matches your home or check the quality of your work in replacing your kitchen countertops. 
However, electrical work does involve permits and inspections. If you perform electrical work incorrectly, the blame will fall on you and will most likely require additional repairs done by an electrical professional. Avoid these extra steps by hiring a professional electrician the first time to save you money and future headaches.
