Electricians Toronto determines how many people does it take to change a light bulb? This question has actually been the opening for many jokes. However, if changing a light bulb involves being exposed to electrical wires, the job is certainly no laughing matter call our electricians in Toronto. As WebMD.com writes, it can lead to an electric shock:
“Many variables determine what injuries may occur, if any. These variables include the type of current (AC or DC), the amount of current (determined by the voltage of the source and the resistance of the tissues involved), and the pathway the electricity takes through the body. Low voltage electricity (less than 500 volts) does not normally cause significant injury to humans. Exposure to high voltage electricity (greater than 500 volts) has the potential to result in serious damage.”
Serious injury or not, doing electrical work is certainly not for an unskilled and untrained do-it-yourselfer. Instead, electrical work is something that should be allotted to a master electricians in Toronto to ensure safety. Unfortunately, in Toronto, some homeowners remain unconvinced of the necessity of professional electricians when they can do the job themselves and save money in the process.
Electrical work though is not as cut and dried as, say, doing laundry or cooking. In fact, according to About.com’s Timothy Thiele, many homeowners make mistakes when troubleshooting their electricity-related problems. Such incorrect practices can lead to fires and injuries.
A common DIY electrical job faux pas is using a wire with the wrong amperage when adding an outlet or circuit to a breaker or fuse. For instance, using a 14-2 NM wire that is meant for 15 amps to a breaker or fuse that’s designed for 20 amps. Meanwhile, master electricians in Toronto are familiar with amperage specifications because of their training and experience in electrical work, safety, theory and regulations.
If any electrical issue at home should involve manipulation of electrical wires, homeowners should steer clear of the job at all costs. For absolute safety, household electrical problems should be handled by trusted master electricians like the ones from Green Planet Electric.
