We all look for ways to save money, and many times, it only means more money stays in our pockets.  However, there are certain things in life that just cannot be performed in your free time on the weekends.  One of those things is repairing or replacing the electric wiring in your home or business.

A professional, licensed electrician knows the ins-and-outs of all kinds of commercial and residential electrical work.  With decades of experience under our belts, you can save yourself from a potential disaster.  By opting to hire an electrician, be assured we know how to get the job done on time and at an affordable cost.

The last thing we want you to do is to suffer the consequences of handling live wiring or other electricity in your home or business.  Here are some of the reasons why you should have an electrician come out and inspect.

Current electrical wiring.  All your electric currents supplying energy to your home or business are carried through all the wiring.  Essentially, wiring is one of the most important components of your electrical work.  Many older developments can have electrical wiring thats been there for a long time.  This step is most likely the last thing youd want to do all on your own.  If you see a lot of complications in your wiring, make sure to call the experts at Lakepointe Electric.

Also, if your home or business occupies old or unused wiring, these are potential hazards if a fire starts.  We’ll make sure all the unused wiring in your home or business is cut down and taken out.  This also goes for the wiring kept outside as rodents and critters love to munch and chew wiring when you’re not looking!

Compliance with codes and regulations.  We understand that time is of the essence.  The last thing you want to discover is that a recent DIY electric repair you performed is unsafe or does not meet the regulations of your area.  This means that the time you took to work on the project went to waste, and you’ll need to hire someone out to finish the job.

Which this will directly impact the costs you put forth during this project.  Sure, you might be saving money from the get-go.  Though, should the job go south, you’ll be forking over even more cash to fix it.  Obviously, if this happens, you will need an electrician with knowledge of local codes and regulations to help you get it right.

An electrician can install additional outlets in your home or convert any of the ones you have to GFCIs (ground fault circuit interrupter).  Often, electrical code requires that at least one outlet in your bathroom and kitchen is a GFCI outlet, which are designed to shut off power if water comes in contact with the electricity or a load of electricity becomes unbalanced, preventing a shock.  However, many older homes do not have this feature.  We’ll also make sure that your outdoor electrical has all the required GFCI outlets needed.

Electrical safety.  The bottom line here amounts to the safeness of working with electrical in your home or business.  You may be unaware of a deeper problem; therefore, if you aren’t careful, you can suffer grave consequences.  If your lights flicker, outlets are fried, or you feel a shock every time you touch an electrical device, then there is most likely an underlying issue.  Here at Lakepointe, we want you to know that DIY electrical is possible.  But, we want you to be safe.  The last thing you want is an issue ensuing and compromising something important.
