Becoming a fully qualified and licensed electrician requires years of training, testing and certification. Any local electrician operating in Toronto must have the credentials to be legally allowed to install, maintain and repair everything from comprehensive power systems to simple lighting fixtures. This is because the stakes are very high when it comes to electrical safety.
ELECTRICAL HAZARDS LURKING IN YOUR TORONTO PROPERTY
They say lightning never strikes twice, but in a building with faulty wiring, electrical fires are a very real and constant threat. Worn out electrical plugs and sockets, outdated circuit breakers and fuse boxes, and any other neglected parts of your property's electrical system are ticking time bombs. Many homeowners and business owners in Toronto fail to realize, for example, that overloading a circuit with too many extension cords in order to expand the number of available outlets will result in “octopus connections” that increase the risk of electrical accidents.
AMATEUR ELECTRICIANS ARE NOT WORTH THE RISK
DIY electrical projects often lead to non-compliance with installation codes. This is not only a severe safety risk, but also a direct violation of the National Electrical Code (NEC) which is the law in most states and local jurisdictions, including Toronto. Attempting to do any rewiring or electrical installations on your own or with the help of an under-qualified cheap contractor may not turn out to be so cost effective once you're faced with denied insurance claims and costly electrical repairs for damaged circuits.
