What electrical work should I attempt on my own?
At the present time Louisiana laws allow you to do whatever you want in your own home.
But, doing electrical work yourself is dangerous and could result in costly repairs as well as making more problems within your home’s system.
How much are you willing to risk to save money?
There is a reason why it takes so much training to become an electrician.
Do not make a mistake by taking electricity lightly, even the smallest job could be a safety hazard.
Why take a chance?
Get a professional to do this work.
What are the liabilities of me doing my own electrical work?
Although, as a homeowner, you can pull your own electrical permit for work in your single family home, in the event of damage or fire caused by your work, your homeowner’s insurance will likely not pay.
They will, however, if the work is done by a licensed Electrical Contractor.
The most dangerous time is when you think to yourself, “This is easy. I can do it myself. Why should i get an electrician?”
Then, when you don’t remember where all those wires went or your hair is standing straight up, you say to yourself, “Well maybe we better call someone to straighten up this mess.”
Now it will cost you double what you thought you were going to save in the beginning.
Save yourself time, money, and potentially your life by hiring an electrical professional.
