Avoid Hazards by Hiring a Professional Residential Electrician

Although many electrical projects at home may seem simple enough, they can pose hazards, as well. Each year an average of 4,000-6,000 people receive injuries in an electrical accident in their homes. Many of these injuries are from people attempting electrical projects on their own, rather than hiring a residential electrician. Damage in the amount of $1.4 billion every year is from the result of electrical fires, as well as accidents occurring in the home. These injuries and damage could have been avoided, by hiring local electricians.

university Park ElectricianJobs That Look Simple but Need a Residential Electrician

Call a University Park residential electrician, when an exhaust fan or ceiling fan needs to be installed in your home. It may look simple, but installing these on your own can pose a fire hazard. Some jobs local electricians will do for the fan is check the ceiling wire, in addition to the wiring that lays behind the switches in the wall, connecting to the ceiling wiring. The box located in the ceiling will need to be rated for safety, for use with the ceiling fan.

A residential electrician is recommended when light fixtures are in need of repair, or you want a new one installed. Depending on the age of the home, the wiring may be out dated and aluminum. This will make the job even more complex than it already is. Doing this job yourself imposes a hazard of injury or fire. The reasoning might be to save money, but it may end up costing you much more by doing it yourself. Besides the cost of materials you have spent for the project, you might end up having to pay an emergency electrician to fix the job. Call a University Park residential electrician to do the job, saving money and possible hazards from happening to you or your home.

University Park Exterior Lighting ServiceLight switches and new plugs installed are a job many homeowners try themselves. However, even though the job looks simple enough, many complications may occur. Injury and fires may happen if these are not installed correctly. Local electricians have experience to install the switches or outlets correctly. They are educated about building codes, as well. A few reasons why you may try to install new ones yourself, may be lights are flickering, or there are crackles coming from the switch. Another reason may be the outlets spark, plugs fall out of the outlet, or the power goes off frequently with the outlet. If you see sparks come out of the outlet, shut off the circuit, and call an emergency electrician. Your home may need the three prong outlets installed, because it is an older home with only two prongs available to use. A residential electrician should be called to change these outlets for you.

Barney has come through again. He is truly an electrical wizard! I was doing some demo in my home and came across an electrical issue that was going to be a big job. He was able to take care of it and the price was fair as always.

***First Time Customer***

We had a 200 AMP Panel burn early Saturday morning. My husband contacted Barney’s Electric; Barney quickly returned the phone call and agreed to come over the following morning.

Barney and Steve arrived at our home on Sunday at 7:00 AM. They completed the job to our satisfaction in a timely and professional manner.

Awesome job, definitely a "5 STAR" Company!

Thank you, Barney and Steve for taking care of us / our home. We will gladly recommend “Barney’s Electric” to our friends and family!
