The Possible Dangers of Do-It-Yourself Electrical Projects
One of the joys of owning a home for the first time includes planning beautification and repair projects in almost every area of your home. While landscaping and other smaller DIY jobs are not likely to cause you harm, electrical work can present dangers if you lack the proper knowledge, including:
- Electric shock
- Fires caused by improper wiring
- Circuit overloads
Calling in our handymen for electrical repair services can keep you safe and prevent serious hazards that may cost you significant time and money to repair later on. We offer a wide selection of services that can improve or replace any electrical system in your home, keeping you safe and providing you with the peace of mind that comes with knowing your handymen arrive insured, background checked and ready to perform the work needed.
Installing Outlets and Switches
If one or more of the rooms in your new home needs more outlets and updated electrical switches, our handymen can inspect and recommend placement areas, such as near nightstands, home office desks and study spaces for the kids. They can also repair or replace loose outlets, damaged switchplates and outlets discolored by age or past outlet overloads that may cause fires or spikes in electricity that could damage your home's appliances
Adding Under-Cabinet Lighting in the Kitchen
If you or any family member enjoys spending time cooking and baking, then under-cabinet lighting can enhance the quality of lighting at counters, making it simpler to read recipes and ingredient lists. This type of lighting also saves space, so you can keep all your kitchen appliances at hand without requiring room for additional lighting, such as unsightly clip-on lamps.
Installing Light Fixtures and Ceiling Fans
When we send out an electrician in McKinney, Texas to install lighting fixtures and beautiful ceiling fans, you can rest assured our contractor will not only provide you with professional and quality workmanship but also can also answer any questions you have about the electrical repair services before, during and after the project. Proper wiring and installation ensure that these devices work correctly and safely, no matter their location.
Adding Recessed Lighting
Recessed lighting provides your home with rich, customized lighting while it conceals the wiring and, in some cases, the fixture itself so only the light source remains visible. The result is a smooth, professional-looking finish that can add flare to any room. This type of lighting often requires complex wiring and handling of the specialized fixtures, and we can provide you with a handyman in McKinney, Texas who has the experience to do so.
Surge Protectors and Ground-Fault Interrupters
If you purchased an older home in Collin County, then call us to inquire about adding surge protectors and ground-fault circuit interrupters. Both of these devices can protect your home and family from fire and electrocution. A surge protector protects your outlets and electrical devices from an overload or change in voltage in case of a power spike, such as from an overloaded outlet. GFIs switch off all electrical power in your home in case of a ground fault electrocution. Our electrical repair services can add these devices as part of a remodeling
