If you’re not an expert about electrical installations, outlets and wiring, then you should never attempt to tackle electrical works on your own. This may seem obvious but you would be suprised about how many times we get asked if hiring a qualified electrician is “worth it”.
If you had a leaky kitchen tap then you can figure out how to undergo a DIY job to fix it. This is not the case with electrical works! You must use a qualified electrician to handle all installations and repairs relating to any form of residential or commercial electrical works.
Here are 10 reasons why you should use a qualified electrician:
Healthy & Safety
Electrical safety is a big issue and is one that Complete Connectrix Ltd takes very seriously. With an ever growing problem, we make sure we make you aware of safety issues and the best way to go about them – we give you tips and information about electrical safety and how to fix your home’s electrical system to make it safe and fit for purpose.
Avoid improper installations
If done improperly, electrical work can cause serious damage to your home. Do it right the first time. It’s therefore important that you let the experts tackle your electrical rewiring and electrical installations by our experts at Complete Connectrix Ltd.
Generally, a job carried out by a DIY-er can lead to breakdowns in circuits which may cost you more for remedial repair than it would to cost to hire a qualified electrician in the first place. If not configured correctly, it can cause overheating and is usually not detected until there’s a shortage and fire breaks out.
Get right the first time
A professional electrician will get your job done for you far quicker, with the peace of mind that everything is done safely.
Ofcourse, working with a qualified electrician can be more costly than doing it yourself. However, as discussed above, When you hire us, you get the confidence that the work has been completed properly. We provide support throughout the process, to make sure you are comfortable with getting the job done right.
There are several routes a professional electrician can take to become certified. Any professional electrician will be more than happy to show you their qualifications. It is always best to have an industry recognised qualification.
Our electricians at Complete Connectrix Ltd are fully qualified, trained and hold the most reputable certifications including NAPIT, ECS, Electrical Registered Competent Persons and proudly endorsed by Trustmark. Get in touch with us so our contractors can come out and assess the situation and go from there.
Apart from the qualifications, it’s important that the electricians you choose to work have enough practical experience working on all types of projects. Having gained years of experience from learning from other electricians and from work experience, you can have the peace of mind that your installation is being carried out by a fully qualified professional.
Experienced electricians understand how to work safely, provide competent service, and meet the needs of each customer. At Complete Connectrix Ltd, we are staffed with professional electricians who can make informed recommendations, any electrician you choose will be able to improve your home’s safety and performance.
Fault finding is an extremely complex area to become fully qualified in. Having to search for an electrical problem can be stressful. It may also damage other appliances nearby.
Troubleshooting electrical issues can be tricky and could potentially cause harm. It makes more sense to trust a professional electrician to find an electrical fault in terms of both time and money.
If you don’t have the skills or knowledge required to look for problems in your electrical system, then it can be much cheaper and safer to call a professional electrician to do the work rather than try it yourself.
In some instances, you may find that the fuses blow out or the light trips out more often than you would like. It’s important that you do not ignore the problem as it could only get worse which may lead you to spend more to get them repaired.
At this stage, it’s more cost effective to hire a professional electrician who can help when things don’t seem to be quite right in your home. They can identify and fix problems in your light and power systems and prevent future problems from cropping up.
Before you do any electrical work in your home, you need to ensure that electricians are certified by a fair and independent organisation to ensure the safety of your home. This will provide you with an assurance that your electrical works are carried out by experts.
Additionally, this will be useful upon selling your home in the future as they are likely to require that you meet certain regulations. As identified above, Complete Connectrix Ltd are registered with NAPIT providing you that extra assurance when you work with us.
Upon taking on any electrical work, you need to check if your electrical contractor provides guarantee for the work that they carry out. This will once again provide you with a peace of mind as you can always call them up if there are any issues.
Most professional electricians, including Complete Connectrix Ltd, offer full workmanship guarantee for all their customers.
By using a registered electrician, you will have access to an independent complaint procedure should anything go wrong. This is extremely important especially if you are faced with faults in the electrical installation or appliances. This is however only available if you got work carried out by a registered electrician.
