Hire a Professional Electrician for Your Home Remodeling

If there is any good time to remodel your home, it is during the hot summer months. When you make remodeling plans, you should never neglect at the electrical needs of your home.

You should consider hiring a licensed electrician to do electric wiring, rewiring, or outlet installation work for you especially if you are changing electric outlets in location where water may be present like in your kitchens, bathrooms, laundry rooms, etc. It is important that Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter outlets or GFCI outlets are installed in these areas of your house. GFCI outlets are designed to give the circuit breaker in your home protection from shorting out. This type of outlet is important where water can be a potential hazard because it prevents the risk of electric shock. To prevent electric shock, the GFCI outlet has a localized circuit breaker right where there is a high risk of shock. Potential hazards like injury from electric shock, electric fires, and other dangers are prevented by this installation design. Only the first outlet in a chain need to be a GFCI outlet. Wirings can be safely installed and outlets all up to code if you hire the services of a professional electrician.

Adding a jetted tube to a new or existing bathroom will need some considerations. The requirement for this jetted tub is at least one 15 amp GFCI circuit. Two GFCI circuits are required if a heater is also being installed. There should also be a solid no. 8 copper ground wire running from the motor to all metal that is associated with the tub. Installing this needs the expertise of a professional electrician to make sure that the wiring is done safely and up to code. Installing a jetted tub gives additional load and a professional electrician ensures that the circuit breaker can handle this load.
