The truth about sparkies: Our electricians bust 5 electrical myths

The truth about sparkies: Our electricians bust 5 electrical myths

Table of Contents

In almost all of our articles, we have emphasised that DIY should be the very last thing when it comes to electrical maintenance.

Electricity is more dangerous than you think. If you want to keep yourself safe and prevent lasting damage, it is mandatory to get in touch with a professional electrician and not carry the electrical tasks independently.

But the problem is that many people still prefer to do the electrical tasks independently and avoid calling electrical experts for electrical and data solutions.

Remember that this type of behaviour can lead to the worst cases. However, we are not discussing the worst scenarios in detail and only suggesting you reach out to the expert electricians for the electrical fixes.

What are the electrical myths that stop you from calling a pro?

When it comes to electrical work, you should be aware that DIY electrical work does not make sense.

If you are hesitant to call an electrician in Queensland, we believe that you rely on the myths that are stopping you from getting professional help.

Once you take services, you will know why it is essential to take the assistance of an electrician.

Myth 1: You can learn anything with a YouTube tutorial, including DIY electrical work

We cannot deny the fact that you can learn a lot of things from YouTube. However, when it comes to electrical maintenance, requires practice, experience, and expertise, which you can not gain through YouTube tutorials.

Electrical work is not that simple and requires detailed knowledge of circuits, wires, and other things regarding electrical equipment and fittings.

However, you should remember that YouTube tutorials are not the ultimate solution to your problems, and they will not teach you about Queensland building codes either. It means that a YouTube tutorial may be against the regulations.

So, it is one of the big reasons to call a registered electrician whenever an emergency occurs.

Myth 2: Electricians are rude, dirty and messy

You may have seen the electricians with dirty clothes and working like rude and nasty people. However, when you reach out to professional electricians, they have lovely habits like cleanliness, approachability, politeness, punctuality and courteousness.

For example, the electricians available at Live Services Group are very polite, respectful and clean. They can provide you with exceptional customer service even if you do not want to get their services.

Myth 3: The electrician will damage the structure of your home

Have you ever heard that the electrician will damage the structure of your home? It is a great myth that electricians will disturb the construction of your home, and you will need to reinstall or rewire all of your electric setups.

Remember that YouTube tutorials are most likely to damage your home. However, if you consider having the experienced and qualified sparky, you will quickly get to know the quality of their services and how they benefit your electrical system.

Myth 4: An experienced electrician is always qualified

Electricians always claim themselves to be highly expert and efficient in their fields. But the fact is not all electricians have certifications and electrical licences.

These documents enhance the electrician’s credibility and make you more confident to hire a particular domestic/residential or commercial electrician.

It is also worth mentioning that not all electrical licences are equal. All according to their work hold different licences. Some licence holders are only allowed to perform domestic electrical tasks. In contrast, other advanced electrical certifications make electricians eligible for commercial tasks or tasks requiring specific skills such as data cabling.

Myth 5: Electricians charge a lot during emergencies 

It may happen when you get in touch with a non-professional group of electricians. However, the electricians available at Live Services Group have fixed rates and always keep their prices reasonable. They do not charge extra for emergency services and always complete their commitments to the customers.

Now, you no longer need to worry about the expensiveness of the electrical repairs at the time of emergency.
