Residential electricians are responsible for all types of electrical work such as assembly, rewiring, repair, testing, installation, and maintenance of electrical systems and components. They work with wiring and control equipment through which electricity flows. Electricians also install equipment, or fixtures based on job descriptions and local regulations and state code/law.
Commercial electricians primarily install electrical wiring systems in factories, businesses, and new homes. They often work in large structures such as office buildings, factories, shopping malls, sports fields, and college campuses.
Electricity is nothing to play with. If you hear “humming” coming from your wall, getting blue sparks when trying to plug things in your wall or just not feeling safe around your outlets?

In addition to electrical wiring, home electricians may also be responsible for installing security cameras, phone lines, backup power, security systems, and air conditioning systems. An electrician is trained and licensed to work on electrical systems, circuits, and appliances – they work both indoors and outdoors so that lights, televisions, industrial equipment, home appliances and more can be used.
A service electrician can replace items such as circuit breakers, fuses, switches, electrical and electronic components, or cables. Part of an electrician’s job is to make sure your commercial and home electrical installation is safe and functioning well. Electricity is dangerous and electricians are trained to recognize these risks and act with care. Working as an electrician puts you at greater risk of injury and/or illness due to the nature of the job – that’s why it is important to hire a licensed contractor for all your electrical needs.
During a power outage, qualified electricians are constantly working on other projects, such as rewiring equipment or fixtures, checking electrical components for safety, installing wiring, and lighting, and troubleshooting electrical problems. Electricians have the authority to inspect electrical components such as circuit breakers and transformers and use various test equipment to detect electrical problems and must repair or replace equipment or wiring.
