Why to Hire a Licensed Electrician

Electrical Safety | 7 July 2022

Whether you are looking to upgrade your home’s electrical panel or need new light fixtures installed for your commercial building, the electrician you choose will have a direct impact on the quality of the work performed. While it may be tempting to hire a general contractor or local handyman to complete your electrical project, this can drastically increase the risk of electrical issues or safety hazards due to low-quality work. As a leading team of commercial, industrial, and residential electrical contractors, BNR Electric knows how detrimental poor workmanship or attention to detail can be for any electrical project. That is why we have compiled a list of reasons why to hire a licensed electrician and ensure that the job is done right the first time.

4 Reasons to Hire a Licensed Electrician for Your Project

Licensed electricians provide the following benefits for residential, industrial, commercial, and agricultural projects of all sizes:

1. Training & Expertise

Before receiving their certification, every licensed electrician needs to complete many hours of training and assessments. This training provides crucial knowledge that helps to ensure the smooth handling of complex electrical projects or unexpected issues that may arise during a seemingly straightforward job. The knowledge provided in this training also ensures that all work is completed to local codes and standards, ensuring consistent quality. This is especially important for work performed on commercial and industrial facilities as these properties are subjected to frequent electrical inspections.

2. Quality of Work

In addition to the knowledge of electrical codes, licensed electricians have been taught how to complete various jobs to the highest standards and the importance of attention to detail. This ensures that you are getting a high-quality solution that meets leading safety standards instead of a partial solution from a hobbyist that may increase the risk of electrical fires or other hazards.

3. Guarantees & Insurance

Most licensed electricians will offer some sort of guarantee or warranty for any work they perform. This can range from guaranteeing to pass your next inspection to providing guarantees on their work for a set amount of time. Licensed electricians are also insured, which is a vital quality for commercial, industrial, and agricultural projects.

4. Safety

Hazard awareness is a key part of every licensed electrician’s training and certification. Before beginning any electrical work, a licensed electrician will identify all hazards that could cause harm to the property and its occupants. This means that you can rest assured that all safety issues will be addressed, keeping your property and everyone in it safe and secure.
