Electricity: both an asset and a source of danger
Renovation projects touching on electricity should never be botched, as a simple mistake can lead to severe consequences. Even years later, a faulty connection can cause circuit problems or worse, fires.
Finding a general contractor that offers electrician services
Are you planning a large-scale renovation project? Hiring a general contractor can be a good option in this case. They have the right skills and most of all, the authorizations to carry out projects that imply different trades. The general contractor and his employees will complete the tasks that are a part of their specialities and for the rest, they will rely on trustworthy sub-contractors. This means that if they aren’t qualified for electricity projects, they will find the right people.
3 things you should know about electricity work
- Even though you aren’t allowed to complete the work yourself, you can still try to find the source of the problem, if said source is not obvious at first glance. For example: the main signs that indicate a problem with an electrical panel, leading to it needing repairs or a full replacement:
- If the panel is equipped with fuses instead of circuit breakers (this technology is considered obsolete)
- Lights and appliances that flicker
- The presence of water or rust
- Short circuits that occur on a regular basis
- Some circuits are not working anymore
- Modernizing your electrical system can have a positive impact on your ecological footprint and on your utility bills. When the opportunity comes up and such options are available, it is recommended that you go for systems that favour energy conservation.
- Time permitting, get several electricians to check out your problem (3 being the ideal number), in order to compare prices that each company charges for the work. Don’t forget to take into account everything that is included in the quote, to get a better idea of the work that will be carried out.
