Oak Electric Service has the combined experience of over 30 years of providing quality electrical service. If you’ve ever contemplated tackling basic electrical tasks yourself, we highly recommend that you use an experienced, licensed electrical contractor. Here are some reasons why.
First of all, a licensed electrician knows the laws and regulations and you don’t. The National Electrical Code regulates the standards for installation of electrical wiring and equipment and each state either adopts this code as law or has its own codes and regulations. If you are not a licensed contractor you probably are not aware of these laws, which change periodically.
The next reason is quality. You may be good at odd jobs and small tasks around the house like painting or landscaping. But electrical work is a different story. If you make a mistake while painting, you either live with it or call a professional. But even a small wiring or lighting mistake can leave you without electricity.
Overloaded circuits, poor connections, broken conductors, and worn or damaged insulation can all result in electrical failure. This means no lights, no washer or dryer and no heating or air conditioning. In addition, your boiler won’t work so there will be no hot water, and if you have a sump pump, that won’t function either. This can lead not only to a temporary power outage, but it could cause long-term damage and necessitate an expensive rewiring or electrical panel replacement.
Finally, and probably most importantly, working on electricity is extremely dangerous. Connecting the wrong wires together, touching an exposed wire, or a host of other mistakes can lead to injury or start a fire. If you do not have experience dealing with electricity, leave it to a professional.
Oak Electric is staffed by seasoned electrical professionals who attend classes and seminars regularly to stay on top of regulations and procedures. We require monthly safety training meetings for all employees We meet or exceed NEC standards (National Electrical Code).
