It’s interesting. We find there are more people around the Albany area seem to be willing to do their own electrical work. They are more inspired to do so with all the YouTube videos available on everything electrical. If you are one of these individuals, and have the appropriate tools, the necessary capabilities and follow a rigid process to ensure safety, it can be a very enjoyable experience.
We thought, seeing you want to step outside of your comfort zone, to share some of the risks that you need to be aware of to ensure your safety.
The last thing we want to do is scare you from working on your home. We simply want to ensure you are safe and know what you are getting yourself into. DIY work might not be worth the hassle if things get messy and out of your control. At the end of the day, it is best to hire a licensed Albany electrician to help you. It will save you time and money in the long run and will give you peace of mind that the work done is done right the first time.
