The electric work in your home or business is something that should only be completed by the professionals. So, where do you turn when you need an electrician? Do your research ahead of time, so you have a reputable company with an experienced team of electricians ready to call in the event you need something fixed or installed quickly. Here are some reasons to put your confidence in a trained, licensed electrician this year.
Did you know that 15% of electrocutions are related to wiring hazards, such as faulty household writing or damaged and exposed wiring? In addition, there are more than 360,000 residential fires in the United States every year, and the leading cause is from malfunctioning electrical work. Taking on a do-it-yourself electrical project is never a good idea. Most homeowners do not have the training or expertise needed to work on their electrical system safely. That makes you at greater risk of getting injured or electrocuted. Not to mention, you could be opening up the potential of damaging the overall structure of your home.
Just like an athlete trains for hours upon hours to hone their skill, so do electricians complete extensive training and education programs to enter their career field. In fact, a general journey level electrician must complete at least 8,000 hours as an electrical trainee under the supervision of a certified electrician. At least 4,000 of those hours need to be spent working on industrial or commercial jobs. Individuals also must finish 96 hours of classroom instruction. Each our union electricians have completed these required programs and trainings. That means they are able to handle various types of commercial and residential projects – big or small.
A doctor gains experience by working with patients. Kids learn to ride a bike by getting experience riding around sidewalks and streets. Electricians get hands-on experience by working on different jobs each day. Many of our electricians have decades of work experience in the electrical industry. Experience goes hand-in-hand with knowledge and skill, and that’s something that you can rely on when it comes to your home or commercial space’s electrical projects.
