Benefits Of Hiring A Professional To Install Your Bathroom Lighting
Many homeowners are tempted to save a couple of bucks and DIY their interior lighting, but this can get dangerous especially if you’re working where there is water like a bathroom. Hiring a professional electrician to replace your bathroom lighting ensures it’s done safely and to code.
If you’re considering trying to replace your bathroom lighting yourself, here are 5 reasons why you should leave it to the licensed electricians at Art Plumbing, Air Conditioning & Electric.
1. Installation Will Be Up To Code
Without a licensed technician doing the job, you can’t be sure that your home’s wiring meets the standard set by the National Electrical Code and your city. Electricians know the requirements in your city, giving you peace of mind knowing that the wiring is safe.
Common mistakes that amateur “electricians” make include the following:
- overloading the system
- wiring the system so that it trips frequently
- ignore old or faulty wiring that needs to be replaced
- inadequate waterproofing
Meeting the national standard is important to ensure proper functionality and reduce the risk of electrical fires or electrical shocks. Electrical fires caused 36.3% of all home fires in the USA in 2020, which shows how easy it is for things to go wrong. Opting for professional electrical work keeps your family and home safe.
2. Energy-Efficient Installation
During their training, electrical technicians learn to wire homes as efficiently as possible. Without this knowledge, you can have excess power being sent to lights that aren’t designed to handle it. Electricians make sure that your bathroom lights do not waste electricity, which helps keep your energy bill under control.
3. They Have The Tools For The Job
When installing lighting fixtures, you need a variety of specialized equipment and skills. Aside from common electrician tools that many homeowners have, electricians also use specialized equipment to perform the following tasks:
- cut mounting screws
- cut through drywall
- extend wires that are too short
- connect new wires to old wiring
With the right tools and knowledge, they can perform these tasks safely.
4. You Save Time And Money
Without the correct training, it takes much longer to complete each task and you have no guarantee that you’ve done it correctly! Homeowners that try to save money by doing their own lighting installations frequently run into trouble a few months later with expensive repairs or full-blown replacements.
Because professional electricians know the light installation process so well, they can get the job correctly done the first time. Whether you need your guest bathroom to be ready for your family during the holiday season, or you’re just tired of walking across your home to use the bathroom at night, hiring a professional is the best way to get the job done quickly and cost-effectively.
