In a world full of DIYs and YouTube how-to videos, a lot of people assume they can repair everything themselves. It’s true, to some degree, that a lot of home repairs don’t require a professional. However, when it comes to electrical work, it’s best to call in the experts. Attempting electrical repair on your own is dangerous due to the complexity and fire or shock risks, so safety and precision are very important in order to get the job done correctly. 

Benefits of Hiring a Residential Electrician for Electrical Wiring Services

Rather than risking injury or damage trying to solve electrical problems, it’s best to hire a professionally trained residential electrician for any electrical wiring work you plan to do throughout your home. Here are a few of the benefits of relying on an Atlanta certified electrician for your electrical services: 

  • Professional Training: The team at Pat Murphy Electric is extensively trained to handle all of your residential electrical needs.

Top Causes of Electrical Accidents

There are approximately 1,000 deaths each year as a result of electrical injuries in the United States. There are at least 30,000 shock incidents each year that aren’t fatal. This is why it is so important to trust your electrical repair to trusted certified residential electricians like those at Pat Murphy Electric in Atlanta. Here are some of the top causes of electrical accidents in the United States:

  • Electrical cords and plugs cause the majority of civilian deaths related to electrical accidents. Never use plugs or cords that have evidence of burning, melting, or any other visible damage. Never use extension cords as permanent power hookups and never conceal extension cords beneath carpeting. 
  • Fixed house wiring is the second leading cause of electrical-related house fires. Overloaded circuits, damaged wires, loose connections on switches or outlets, and various other potential wiring issues can create a hazard. Having your wiring inspected by a professional residential electrician can help prevent these accidents.
  • A misuse of lamps and light fixtures is another main cause of electrical accidents. Using a higher wattage bulb than a fixture is designed for can melt fixture wiring, creating a major hazard. 
  • Any potentially wet areas of your home - such as a kitchen or bathroom - should be fitted with ground-fault circuit-interrupter outlets. If you don’t have these types of outlets, a residential electrician should be called to install them ASAP
