How do you find an electrician who’s willing to do small electrical jobs?

Small electrical jobs such as installing a light switch or a wall light can often present home and business owners with a problem: How do they find an electrician who’s willing to come out and do it?

At Electric City we believe that no job’s too small and we’re happy to pop in to homes and businesses in the York and North Yorkshire area to make sure the task is completed safely and professionally.

It can be quite a lot of trouble finding an electrician to attend to a minor task. Many companies are not willing or able to resolve an issue with a light switch, or to just call in and install a light fitting.

That’s not the case with Electric City. We’re friendly, helpful and – most importantly – happy to carry out all types of electrical work, from small maintenance jobs to large installations. In fact, we’d even go so far as to say that no job is too small for us!

We believe that if electricians only take on bigger jobs, homeowners may be tempted to try and do it themselves.

But why not just do it yourself?

You may be tempted to have a go at some electrical DIY, particularly if there’s just a small issue to be sorted out. You may think it’s not worth finding – and paying – a professional just to install a light switch, for example. If you’re considering it, you need to be wary for a number of reasons.

Firstly, most electrical work generally needs to be carried out in accordance with BS 7671 wiring regulations, as well as complying with Part P building control. When you move house, or if you want to rent out a property, you will need to have certification for all the electrical work that has been carried out. Another thing to bear in mind is that if uncertified electrical work causes any damage to a person or property, your insurance could be invalid.

Secondly, remember that – as with most things – what looks simple when undertaken by a professional can actually turn into an amateur’s nightmare. Faulty electrical work can not only be costly to rectify, but it can also be a potential fire risk.

So it really is best to use a qualified electrician for any electrical work, no matter how small. And that’s where we can help!
