You might see an electrical issue at home and think, “Hey, I can fix that!” And that’s pretty neat, because it gives great satisfaction to look at something you’ve done. It’s also a great way to save money – maybe. You see, electrical repairs can be a lot more tricky than other types of home repairs. For instance, when fixing the counter, you probably will not be electrocuted if you make a mistake!

Electrical Repairs – Some Risks


There’s a reason you see a fire station in nearly every neighborhood! Each year, hundreds of fires are caused by improper electrical connections. Unstable wiring is another common cause. Unless you really know what you’re doing, it is probably best to forgo doing it yourself.


Trouble with electricity is that it gives quite a bite! You can easily end up in the hospital – or cemetery – when a little detail is forgotten, or the knowledge base is not quite up to speed.

Property Damage

It is possible to melt wires to appliances or your computer, or even the wiring within the walls by faulty wiring in the house. In fact, that’s how the electrical fires stated above begin. The sad fact is, if you wire your own house, or even a portion of it, your home insurance will not cover you. They require an electrician, professional, licensed and even insured. It is due to knowing not only how electricity works and the harnessing of it, but also the codes and city permits.
