Top Reasons to Hire an Electrician Before Your Next Home Renovation Project

Home renovation projects can be exciting – but overwhelming. Before you take a hammer and start knocking down some walls, hire an electrician. One of the most important steps when doing work in your home that’s often overlooked is your electrical.

There are many risks involved when working with electricity, so you should always leave it to the pros. Here are the top reasons you should hire an electrician before your next home renovation project.

Installing Additional Outlets

You may need to install additional outlets in a room that needs more outlets or lacks proper access. Sometimes, outlets are placed in awkward locations too. When renovating your space, it’s a good time to decide if you want to install new outlets and remove old ones. Installing new outlets requires the help and expertise of an electrician to prevent a potential fire. Electricity needs to be properly grounded. Electricians have the skills and training to ensure your safety and the safety of your home. If you live in an older home that lacks GFCI outlets, also, it’s the perfect time to have an electrician install some of those. They are required in several states.

Upgrading Electrical Panels

If you’re upgrading your home, chances are you need to upgrade your electrical panel too. Most older homes were designed to use approximately 30 to 50 amps of power, which is way less than homes today. If your home requires more power than your electrical panel can handle, you’ll start noticing lights flickering, frequent power outages, damages to your appliances, and more serious electrical issues.

Replacing Light Fixtures

Chances are you have design and aesthetics on top of your mind when starting a home renovation project. Proper lighting is essential for decoration and overall aesthetics. Consider switching to LED lighting to not only help you enjoy brighter lighting but to also save on energy consumption. Whether you’re looking into indoor lighting or outdoor lighting, you can’t go wrong by hiring a professional electrician.

Rework Your Electrical Wiring

If your home renovation project requires the tearing down of walls, then you may also be required to rewire your home. This can be quite the task, but there’s no job too big or too small for the pros at Spark Daddy. Have an electrician conduct a full inspection of your wiring system and look at installing new wires, switches, and circuits to keep you and your home safe.
