The Importance of Hiring a Professional Electrician for Your Home Remodeling Electrical Needs
Summer is the best time to do home remodeling. It is important that the electrical aspects of home remodeling also be given consideration.
You should consider hiring a licensed electrician to do electric wiring, rewiring, or outlet installation work for you especially if you are changing electric outlets in location where water may be present like in your kitchens, bathrooms, laundry rooms, etc. It is important that Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter outlets or GFCI outlets are installed in these areas of your house. Protecting your circuit breaker from shorting out is possible only with GFCI outlets installed in these locations. It will also help prevent the risk of electric shock in an area where water can be a potential hazard. A GFCI outlet provides you with a localized circuit breaker right where the risk of shock is highest. This can prevent potential hazards like injury from electric shock, electric fires, and other dangers. Only the first outlet in a chain need to be a GFCI outlet. If you hire a professional electrician you are assured that your wirings are safely installed and all your outlets are up to code.
Adding a jetted tube to a new or existing bathroom will need some considerations. At least one dedicated 15 amp GFCI circuit is needed in this. You need two GFCI circuits if you are installing a heater also. From the motor to all metal that is associated with the tub, a solid no. 8 copper ground wiring should run. If you want to make sure that the wiring is done safely and up to code, then you need to hire the expertise of a professional electrician to install this for you. Installing a jetted tub gives additional load and a professional electrician ensures that the circuit breaker can handle this load.
You will be able to enhance the appearance of your home through recessed lighting. It is great to have recessed lighting since it is hidden in the ceiling and your line of sight is not blocked by a hanging light fixture. Since there are no hanging fixtures, you will have a seemingly bigger and more open space. However, you need knowledge of electrical wiring to be able to install these lights. This is the reason why you need to consult a professional electrician to make sure the lighting is installed and wired properly. Your existing lighting fixtures can be replaced with recessed lighting and you can also install new ones to brighten up a particular area of your home or to emphasize a great design element of your home. If you really want to improve the mood of your rooms, you should consider putting creative lighting.
