Are you considering calling an electrician for a home project, but aren’t sure if your specific needs are something they can handle? You’re not alone in your concern. Many times, a homeowner isn’t sure if what they require would be worth the time of a
professional electrician. Today, we’re here to debunk that concern. The truth is that your electrical system, if not installed properly, can be a safety hazard. It’s always better to be safe than sorry. Here are the tasks that a residential electrician can perform for you.
Lighting installations and upgrades
Would you like to install some recessed lighting? Or does the ceiling fixture in one of your rooms lack an electrical box? Maybe you simply feel that the lighting in one of your rooms is too little for what it needs to be.
Lighting installations and upgrades are the first of our seven primary tasks that residential electricians perform for their customers.
Installing backup generators and solar panel fields
We lump both of these into the category of “secondary power supply.” The second task that a residential electrician can do is ensure that you have a backup generator in place or that you have a solar panel system that meets your home’s power needs.
Replacing dated electrical panels or installing secondary system panels If you’re still using a fuse box, you should contact a residential electrician to have them swap it out with a newer breaker box. Likewise, your existing electrical panel may not be sufficient for your planned home upgrades. An electrician can fix this for you.
Making your home EV ready
If you’ll be buying your first electric vehicle soon, you’ll need a home charger. Another task best handled by a residential electrician is to make certain that your home is EV ready, and able to charge your vehicle with ease.
Trenching, backfilling, and other outside feature installations
Any type of external feature will most likely require power. Some of these will require trenching and backfilling. Others will necessitate secondary sub-panel setups. Working with a residential electrician will help ensure these are up to code.
Layout and design
A quality residential electrician can always help with layout and design. They understand how to work within blueprints and home layouts to ensure the most efficient wiring setup while providing ample power to your rooms.
Residential electrical troubleshooting
We saved the most far-reaching task for last. Electrical troubleshooting covers a wide variety of problems ranging from outlets that won’t stay connected to breakers that
keep tripping and so much more. If anything, consider this the catch-all task: a professional electrician can tackle anything related to your home’s power needs.
