Spring is the time when most homeowners begin thinking about cleaning, do-it-yourself (DIY) projects, and remodeling. Most of us here in Bryan/College Station would like to take care of these projects before it gets too hot to think. But before you rush into anything, consider checking with professionals before you tackle a home wiring project. Mistakes can be costly, or even deadly.
It may seem perfectly obvious to exercise extreme caution while working on an electricity project; however, thousands of DIYers receive electric shock injuries each year. To avoid becoming a statistic, always turn off the circuit breaker (or remove the fuse) before working on or replacing electrical equipment. If your home is pre-1940s, as many of the beautiful homes in historic Bryan are, be aware that you most likely have more than one breaker box.
Some other useful facts to keep in mind:
Most importantly, if you are not certain about what you are doing, it is best to consult an electrician or a licensed electrical contractor. We have plenty of experienced professionals here in the Brazos Valley ready to help!
