When to call your Edmonds professional electricians. When you have a problem, do you call a professional or a handyman? How do you think of a professional vs. a nonprofessional? A nonprofessional may perform work that is not up to code. A nonprofessional might tap one wire to another without using junction boxes. A nonprofessional may perform illegal work by not following National Electric Code. A licensed electrical contractor will only perform work that is guided by the N.E.C.
A licensed electrical contractor who has dealt with a lot of problems in the past can find and identify a problem quickly. One time a painter was refinishing the floors for a homeowner and his equipment would not work. He told the homeowner that the problem was in a receptacle in the floor. The problem was not with that receptacle. It was the painter that was using old equipment while he plugged into a circuit that he overloaded. They were using faulty extension cords and faulty equipment which lead to tripping the breaker.
An electrical contractor must guarantee his work. A handyman may not be a professional and he may not guarantee his work. A handyman will perform a little carpentry work, a little air conditioner work, or maybe a little plumbing. But he should not perform your home improvement job if it requires re-wiring or new wiring. If you have a problem, can they fix the problem that exists or just patch it?
If a handyman is called out to perform a simple job like change a receptacle, does he know what the codes are? Does he know if that receptacle was originally installed correctly? A handyman does not know what the codes are for the box fill or any codes for installing a new fixture. For instance, do you know if a handyman can install a fan on any box in your home? The answer is no. The box must be capable of handling 50 pounds of weight. Can your handyman hang a fixture anywhere? No, he can not.
