Hiring a Certified Electrician to Ensure Electrical Safety

If you are a business owner, you have a lot on your plate. Your responsibilities are far-ranging, from finances to planning to administration and everything in between. But perhaps nothing outweighs your obligation to ensure your employees are working in a safe environment.  At the top of the list is fire safety and that’s why it is important to make sure all of your electrical work is performed by a professionally-licensed certified electrician.

ELECTRICAL SAFETY

For more than eight decades, Armstrong Plumbing, Air & Electric has served the Lubbock, Texas area. That includes not only our residential customers but the business community as well. Our trained and certified electricians are equipped to handle the challenges of electrical work and stand ready to help your business. Here are some compelling reasons why hiring certified electricians is a great investment in your company:

FIRE SAFETY

Most building fires are caused by faulty or outdated electrical wiring which becomes overloaded and overheated, leading to fire-inducing sparks or shorts. Certified electricians recognize the workload business electrical systems need to handle and come equipped with high-quality durable wiring and other electrical materials.

UP-TO-CODE ELECTRICAL WORK

Hiring professionally certified and insured electricians will also ensure that the work is done according to the guidelines of the National Electrical Code (NEC). 

In addition, choosing the right electrical contractor can have a big impact on your business, now and down the road. For starters, check to make sure they are licensed and bonded. This can be crucial if repairs are needed or breakdowns occur. If you hire an unlicensed contractor, you will then be responsible for any damages or injuries to employees caused by the electrical issues. This can result in costly repairs and loss of revenue, not to mention harm to your employees. Also make sure that any prospective contractors are experienced with electrical work and have a verifiable history of competent service. Check online consumer advocate sites for reviews.
