Doing electrical work on your own?

“That looks easy”, something you might tell yourself when you find a problem with your electrics.

Many people enjoy working on their homes and with the right skills and tools, DIY projects can be very rewarding. It makes us feel good and offers s a sense of accomplishment; not the mention the money you can save.

Some people perceive basic electrical work as something they can easily take on themselves – however, you may want to think again.

Handing electrical projects without the proper tools and qualifications can have disastrous consequences. Here’s just a handful:

  • Fire – every year hundreds of electrical fires are caused by improper connections and unstable wiring systems
  • Injury or fatality – without trying to scare you, electricity can cause serious injury and harm including burns and shocks
  • Property damage – Insurance companies will not pay for damage if electrical work is not carried out by a professional, licensed and insured electrician. Check the NICEIC register for registered contractors to ensure your insurance is valid.

Your desire to save money and have the satisfaction of doing it yourself can cost more in the long run. Always get a professional to complete any electrical work.
