Positricity is your local Clearwater FL electrician. We frequently hear from new customers that they were not sure if they needed a professional electrician or not for the work on their house. We wanted to list some of the common reasons homeowners tends to contact us. No job is too big or small for us. We’re happy to help you with your issue.

When it comes to many changes in your home, it’s best to leave the electrical work up to the professional Clearwater electricians at Positricity. It is important for homeowners to understand the benefits of a residential electrician and to prevent novice electrical mistakes that can be dangerous.

You probably need an electrician for your Clearwater FL home if:

You are replacing or installing home accents like light fixtures, switches and ceiling fans. This kind of work can be dangerous due to the wires leading back to the electrical panel. If you didn’t wire the house yourself, you could mistakenly think an outlet or wire is safe, even with the switch turned off. We’ve seen many creative, and dangerous, ways houses and add-on rooms have been incorrectly wired over the years.

You are remodeling or adding a room to your house. Our electricians are frequently called to visit Clearwater homes when the homeowner wants to install new appliances for their kitchen remodel. These changes can create an inappropriate load on the circuit in the main electrical panel. The whole panel, breaker (or fuse), wire, device (outlet, light fixture), circuit (with several devices) may not be designed to take on the additional load of the additional room.

We’ve also found some people looking to save money by thinking they can work on their electrical panel. This is one of the most dangerous ideas, because the “hot” line coming in from the electrical pole (service) to the house can easily severely injure a person not trained as an electrician.
