Jobs of A Residential Electricianby Thomas Electrical Commercial Electricians
As electrical equipments vary greatly in their operations, maintenance and installation, as well as their safety precautions, there are different types of specialised electricians for different purposes. Two common types of electricians are residential electricians and commercial electricians. Some electricians choose to master only one branch of the trade, while some of them choose to become ‘jack of all trades’. If you search for ‘residential electricians near me’, you shall find a whole bunch of them.
Residential electricians require a licence and thus, extensive training before they can undertake projects and work as an electrician. However, the duties of a residential electrician vary greatly as well. They need to know how to rewire the whole house as well as how to simply fix a faulty power outlet. A broad categorization of the tasks of a residential electrician might be installations, upgrades, repairs and troubleshooting.
Upgrading an existing electrical system is one of the most common duties of a residential electrician. Upgrading the existing electrical system of a home basically means two things, it is either to replace the existing equipments with modern and more efficient equipments or to upgrade the system in a way to accommodate the home-owner's needs better. This can mean upgrading the wiring of the house or creating a heavy duty power outlet at another place so the homeowner can easily move heavy electrical equipments to another place.
Another very important aspect of a residential electrician’s works is repair. We know, every machine, electrical or otherwise, breaks down or, at least, work less efficiently, with wear and tear. The residential electricians should have excellent troubleshooting skills so that they know which part or equipment, in a running line is, actually, causing the trouble. That can very well be the fault of the AC machine but the residential electrician should be able to point that out so the homeowner can cal the AC seller. They should also be adept in risk assessment because at home, we don't want anything go wrong even slightly.
Some of the residential electricians prefer to do new installation of electrical appliances, compared to repairing old, existing machines. This can mean installation of new wiring, power outlets, fuses, circuit breakers, switchboards and so on. These electricians should be able to create a blueprint of the whole electrical system according to the design of the house and the taste of the homeowner. They should also be aware of the local and federal guidelines and restrictions.
