Top 5 Electrician Myths Debunked by Our Electricians

Top 5 Electrician Myths Debunked by Our Electricians

Table of Contents

Electricity is not a child’s play, and you should stay away from all the so-called DIY hacks available online. Therefore, to keep you and your family safe, you must hire a professional electrician for all your electrical needs.

No matter how small the problem might sound, never do DIY electronics. There are higher chances that the wrong DIY tactic might lead to bigger problems in the long run. When you face any problem, then feel free to call our electricians, who are ready to fix any problem on arrival.

In this article, we are going to discuss the top 5 electronic myths that prevent you from calling a professional electrician.

Top 5 Myths that stop you from calling a professional electrician

First of all, doing DIY in electronics is illegal by law, but still, thousands of people do it anyway. Most of them are motivated by common myths full of incomplete/wrong information. Such myths make electronic work like a cakewalk, but in reality, it can harm you.

Hence you need to call a pro electrician, and our electricians are ready to help!

Myth 1: Following DIY videos on YouTube

The power of the internet has made every person capable of doing their work. All you have to do is search for a topic, and there are hundreds of videos available. One common thing about these videos is that they make everything look easy. It creates excitement and confidence in you to take the task in hand and do it. 

On the other hand, the reality is quite the opposite and electronic work is never simple. Most homes and businesses are old, and there are chances that the electric work might have been done multiple times.

Any kind of mish-mash in electric wiring/fitting can lead to complications. It requires hands-on experience, training, and specialization in electronics.

YouTube DIY tutorials can never teach you enough to do the job the same as an experienced electrician can do because they won’t teach you the Queensland building codes. It is also illegal and violates regulation leading to a heavy penalty. You can avoid all this and call our electricians, and get the job done!

Myth 2: Electricians are not professionals, and they are rude!

Most people hesitate to consult electricians because they think that they are not professionals, and are rude to their customers.

Well, this typecasts all the electricians under the same category. But, we are proud to claim that our electricians are polite, punctual, approachable, tidy and courteous.

All electricians are experienced, well-trained professionals who take it as a mission to provide the best services to our customers.

Myth 3: Electricians damage your home

When most people hire electricians, they think that they will damage your home, and then you again look for some DIY hacks.

Well, the DIY electric steps might damage your home rather than solving any problem. Instead, you should consult with an experienced electrician and ask them to do the job with the minimum damage possible.

Also, this is quite illogical for people to think that for the smallest of repairs, an electrician will damage your house. Not every electric work will damage your house. You just have to hire an experienced electrician, and your job is done!

Myth 4: Experience electrician means qualified 

There are a lot of self-proclaimed electricians that claim to have enough experience to tackle any electric work. Also, many people think that they are as good as a qualified electrician and they are the right fit for any electronic work.

The straightforward answer to this is that not all electricians are equal! There are different licenses allotted to different electricians with specialized training.

Almost every license holder can do domestic electric work. But for advanced work (factories, offices), you are required to have a specific skill set for the same. You can explore different licenses here, and when you contact an electrician make sure that you ask for a license!

Myth 5: Electricians Overcharge!

This is one of the most common myths among people that electricians will overcharge you, especially when you have an emergency. It is the reason why a lot of people hesitate to call an electrician even during an emergency.

However, at LiVE Services, we are committed to providing the best quality services at the most affordable rates possible. Our emergency electricians provide transparent and upfront pricing.

Also, in case you try any DIY hack, the problem seems to be resolved for now. But there are chances that it is still there in the background, which becomes worse over time and leads to a bigger problem. That will cost you way higher than hiring professional electricians.
