We love to serve our customers, and a big part of that is leading you to the best approach to fixing things around your home. While we focus on home maintenance and small fixes, sometimes we get questions about other larger projects. For instance, you may want a new ceiling fan. Or perhaps, you have an electrical outlet that no longer works. These projects seem like an easy fix, but things never are as easy as we want to think. All the above require a licensed electrician and here is why.
We live in the wonderful state of Florida, so to suddenly decide you want a ceiling fan in the center of your living room is completely understandable. If you already have a light or something requiring electricity in the place you want the fan, chances are a handyman will be able to replace the light with your new fan. However if you have nothing already in its place, you need an electrician to go into your attic, install new wiring and connect them to the spot of your choice for your fan. Complicated right?
Or, you have an electrical outlet giving you a hard time or some of your lights no longer work. An electrical outlet seems small and simple but whenever you are dealing with anything beyond the external portion of the outlet (aka the cover), it’s a delicate situation. Not to give you too many boring details, but there is a lot going on behind that outlet and you would sleep much better at night knowing a licensed professional did your repair.
