Electrical Jobs That Should Be Left to a Professional and Why

In modern times, the possibilities of expanding your knowledge are endless. By way of the Internet, we are able to explore, problem-solve, and learn how to do things alone that we never thought were possible, a.k.a. the evolution of the DIY-er. One should be cautious, however, as to the tasks they decide to conquer without the assistance of a professional. Let’s explore electrical jobs that should always be left for a highly trained electrician, and why.

Replacing or Installing a Light Fixture

So maybe you’ve updated your kitchen with all stainless steel appliances and are looking for more ways to upgrade your home. Installing a light fixture for your dining room may first appear as a quick and easy solution, but the task couldn’t be more misleading. With online tutorials and booklets included with our purchases, we often receive the generic instructions. The reality is there are a lot of different types of homes and construction which means there are different types of problems that may arise that aren’t included with the how-to’s. A common bump in the road includes issues with light fixture wiring. So before you rush to swap your basic single light fixture for your artsy multi-light installation, consider calling a professional to save time and money.

Adding Cable and Data Lines

Historical homes may be charming but they can also cause headaches when it comes to installing your new flat screen TV or data network. There are codes and ordinances that MUST be followed while upgrading your home network system. Failing to do so will prove to be very costly. A qualified Atlanta Electrician will know these laws and will have the permits necessary to complete the task.

Expanding Circuits

Often times, a home will have a fuse box with every single circuit already assigned but what happens when you want to expand? More often than not, homeowners may plan for the present only and not consider future construction/electrical needs. Most of us know to check the breaker box when we there’s an outage but beyond that, its functions are completely foreign. Leave circuitry to a professional in order to avoid overload and extremely costly repairs.

At Kalahari Electrical, we want to keep you educated about all things involving your home’s electricity. Give us a ring if you are ever hesitant about any repair/remodeling issue. You can trust us as your highly trained, Atlanta electricians.

From the Owners

Our customers here are our number one concern: we treat them as if it was our own home. We pride ourselves on being on time. We give a standard hour window and work to meet you within that time. One of the owners, Joseph Cloer or Jan Rossouw, normally answer the phone so you do get to talk to an electrician directly and discuss your problem with us so we can give you advice over the phone. We have a saying here: we would rather over-do it than to have to do it over. If you are in need of an electrician, give Kalahari a call. We will take care of your residential, commercial, and emergency electrical needs.
