Why It’s Never a Good Idea To Carry Out DIY Electrical Work

WE SERVE YOUR AREA!

Sorry! We don't service your area.
 

Many homeowners like to start small home improvement projects around the house and spend some of their weekends in the upkeep and overall maintenance of their home. While it’s perfectly fine to undertake some small DIY gardening, carpentry or painting projects in your home, it’s never a good idea to try to fix electrical problems or handle electrical upgrades on your or own.

One of the primary reasons why property owners try to tackle some of these jobs themselves is because they feel it can save them some money. But the fact is that electricity is never something you can experiment with and only a licensed and trained electrician should carry out electrical jobs. We at Quick Connect Electrical always recommend to our customers that they should hire professional electricians for these jobs.

Not only is it the safer but you will find that it’s also a cheaper option in the long term. This is because only experienced and skilled electricians can ensure that all the work is completed safely and is up to code. We provide excellent, prompt, professional and cost-effective electrical services to residential as well as commercial customers.

DIY electrical tasks can prove to be dangerous

Let’s understand why DIY electrical jobs can pose a danger to you and your property:

  • It’s not legal in Sydney to carry out any type of electrical work by yourself unless you’re qualified and have a license, and you risk being slapped with a fine or even being prosecuted if you attempt to handle these tasks yourself.
  • Incorrect techniques can result in electrocution and sometimes can be fatal too.
  • A large percentage of electrical fires are actually caused by individuals that have attempted to fix electrical problems on their property; and so when you try your hand at DIY electrical jobs, in effect you are putting at risk the lives of people that live in your home. Electrical fires can also cause a considerable amount of damage to your property.
  • If there is any electrical-fire related damage caused by wiring or any appliance installed by you, that can affect your property insurance coverage.

A novice isn’t aware of all the basic safety measures they need to take while handling the electrical job. Aside from this, many of these tasks can prove to be more complex than they seem on the surface; and only a skilled and experienced electrician would be able to assess and identify the root of the problem and provide a suitable fix. We can handle all types of electrical installations, repairs, and replacements to your 100% satisfaction.

MICHAEL CHEN

Very happy with the great service and professionality! Mohammed was very patient and meticulous, going (quite literally) above (our deck's roof) and beyond to find and fix problems with some existing bad wiring. Explained all the problems in a very clear and informative way. Would highly recommend this service to friends and family!

"I would highly recommend Karl and his team for any work his professionalism and dedication to his work is remarkable.

We are currently building a 225sqm complex extension in Strathfield and he has continuously offered great advice on how to proceed with all things electrical from led lights and power points to HDI cables for the TV. He has always been on time and has gone above and beyond expectation. He and his team even worked 10hrs on a day that was 45 degrees. Once again I would highly recommend Karl"
