3 DIY Projects That Are Best Left to an Electrician, Fort Dodge, Iowa

Doing projects around the house yourself can save you a lot of money, but in some cases, it’s better to hire a professional. The staff at Bemrich Electric and Telephone in Fort Dodge, IA, has seen DIY projects gone wrong, and they don’t want you to get hurt. Here they list three projects you thought were DIY projects, but that should really be left to an electrician.

3 DIY Projects That You Should Hire an Electrician For

1. Installing New Wiring

Code regulations require you to hire an electrician to install new wiring, but it’s also necessary to get an expert for your own safety. The same is true for installing a new circuit, because there is a lot involved to ensure that you’re not placing too great of a load on that circuit. Finally, installing new outlets also seems like an easy project, but since it involves playing with wiring, it’s best to hire an expert before you accidentally burn down the house trying to do it yourself.

2. Fixing a Short

However, if there’s a problem with the electrical wiring in your home that results in shorts, it’s best to call an electrician. Otherwise, you may end up in the hospital because playing with wiring is dangerous for the untrained.

3. Electrical Work in the Kitchen or Bathroom

Electricity and water just don’t mix. The potential hazards of doing anything electrical in the wettest rooms of your home, mainly the kitchen and bathroom, are too great to make this a good DIY project. Whether you need to replace an outlet or a light fixture, it’s best to call an electrician for the job.
