Top 3 reasons for hiring a licensed electrician

Are you considering getting some electrical work done on your house and wondering whether or not you should hire a licensed electrician? In Ontario, all electricians must be licensed, no matter what kind of electrical work they perform.

It may be tempting to save some money by doing the work yourself, or hire a friend who claims to have electrical work experience. However, you run a substantial risk of running into problems if you don’t get work done by a licensed professional. At best, you’ll run into trouble with your appliances not working, and at worst, you could be faced with an electrical fire!

These are the top three reasons why you must hire a licensed electrician in Mississauga if you need electrical work done on your home:

  1. Licensed electricians have extensive experience.
  2. You are guaranteed high-quality and safe work with a licensed electrician.
  3. A licensed electrician has insurance to protect both themselves and your home.

1. Licensed electricians have extensive experience

It takes several years to become a licensed electrician, including a lot of time in the classroom and on the job as an apprentice. A qualified electrician can do all of the following if you’re looking to make changes to your Mississauga home:

  • Provide a detailed estimate on any repairs or changes you want to be made.
  • Inspect and fix or upgrade your electrical system.
  • Fix any routing electrical issues they encounter.
  • Confirm if your current setup is up to code and what needs to be repaired or replaced.

Reliable electricity is vital to your safety and comfort, whether running your air conditioning in the summer or microwaving a cup of coffee on a cold winter day. And the best way to ensure that you can rely on your electricity is to have fixes or upgrades made by a qualified professional!

2. You are guaranteed high-quality and safe work

Another good reason to hire a licensed electrician is that you can rely on their quality of work. With electrical work, there can be real consequences if the job isn’t done safely and correctly. When you get service provided by a professional Mississauga electrician, you can count on the following:

  • Getting top-quality work. Extensive on-the-job training ensures that electricians know how to do their jobs properly.
  • Peace of mind knowing that you don’t have to worry about safety issues associated with poorly done electrical work. One of the reasons that electricians have to spend a lot of time in the classroom and then with on-the-job training is that shoddy work can have serious consequences.

3. Insurance that protects themselves and your home

Another benefit to hiring a licensed electrician is that they come fully insured. If you or an unlicensed electrician damage your home while doing wiring work, for example, it’s unlikely that your home insurance will cover the damages.

However, if an electrician damages your home—whether during repairs, general maintenance, or an entirely new installation—their insurance will cover the cost of all the damages. In addition, many electricians will offer a guarantee or a warranty on their work.

Why should I hire an electrician from Hi-Lite Electric Inc.?

Mississauga is a great place to live and work, and your home is where you go to relax and enjoy time with family and friends. To ensure that you never have to worry about the safety and reliability of any electrical work done on your home, it’s essential to hire a licensed electrician.

When you come to Hi-Lite Electric Inc., you’re getting:

  • Work done by a company with over thirty-five years of experience.
  • Access to emergency repairs that can be done the same day you contact us. People call us for same-day repair because of blown fuses, a loss of power (that isn’t city-wide), and malfunctioning circuit breakers. 
  • Quality service from qualified electricians, including electrical inspections, upgrades, and replacement of smoke detectors and carbon monoxide alarms. If your smoke alarm is constantly beeping with no apparent cause, then you may need to get it replaced.

We also install electric vehicle (EV) chargers. So, if you’ve been considering buying an electric vehicle, or already have one and want the convenience of being able to charge your car at home, then we can install a charger for you.

If you don’t have a pressing issue, but are concerned about the age or condition of the wiring in your home, then we can still check for all of the following:

  • Old fuse panels and overloaded circuits.
  • New wiring that has been installed improperly or is not up to code.
  • Any other issues that could be a fire hazard.

If you’re planning on selling your house, then it’s vital to ensure that it is up to code. Depending on the age of your Mississauga home, you may have aluminum wiring in it, which we can repair or replace as necessary.
