6 Steps to Choosing the Right Electrician


When you're looking for an electrician, look for someone with whom you can form a long-term relationship. It's going to save you a lot of time and money if you can find someone whom you trust to get the job right the first time and give you the right price.

Step 1) Find Recommended Companies

You can get recommendations for electricians from friends and neighbors. You can also search on-line for electrician Los Angeles or electrician Burbank, and so on. If you add the word reviews to your search, you can look through company reviews.

Another approach is to search websites that feature reviews. Reviews appear on many websites including Google Places, Yelp.com, AngiesList, and CitySearch.

When looking at customer reviews, take a look at the big picture. Is there one bad review among the many good ones? Is it just a grumpy customer? Is there a company reply that clears things up or says that it has corrected its employee?

Once you have three or so recommended electricians, take a look at their websites.

Step 2) Check the Electrical Company Website

· Is it presentable and well-maintained?

· Easy to find what you're looking for?

· Friendly, helpful, and not cluttered with hard-sell advertising?

· How many good testimonials?

If the website checks out, it's time to interview the electrician.

Step 3) Interview

When you talk with the electrician, pay attention to how comfortable you are, including your trust level. I've listed questions that you can ask. If you've already gotten glowing recommendations or it's a small repair job like fixing a broken light switch, you probably wouldn't want to ask them all. But if you aren't talking with a recommended electrician and you're planning a remodel, ask away.

· Experience with your type of work

· Years in business. Most companies which have stayed in business a long time have managed to keep their customers satisfied. They've also gathered a lot of useful experience and competence.

· Contractor's License Number

· Liability Insurance and Workers Comp Insurance. It's desirable that the company carry at least $1 million in liability insurance to protect your home should their work create property damage. Workers Comp provides for medical care for the electricians should they be injured on your job. Again, this protects you from liability.

· Guarantees. Some companies offer a lifetime guarantee on their work. This wouldn't generally include the electrical parts that they install - that's covered by the manufacturer's guarantee. However, the electrician should give you at least a several-year guarantee on labor. A guarantee up to the life of your home is best.

· Better Business Bureau (BBB) rating. Ask for the exact company name that you should look and in which city. Sometimes, the BBB will use a slightly different name, possibly the formal legal name of the company.

· Pricing

· Website address if you don't already have it

· Names and contact info for five clients

Take notes on all this, particularly the License Number. If you decide to go ahead, you may wish to check some of what the electrician has said. If you decide not to go ahead, no need to proceed any further with this electrician. But save the notes so that you can remind yourself later of which companies you've already ruled out.

Step 4) Look and Listen

While you're gathering this information, listen to what is said but also pay attention to how the electrician acts and makes you feel. If you meet with the electrician, keep your eyes open, too.

· Do you like the electrician?

· Do you feel comfortable and not under pressure?

· Does the electrician inspire your trust?

· Do the electrician and company employees seem to know what they're doing?

· Do they seem to operate legally and behave ethically? Are they acting the way that you would want them to act towards you?

· Do they return phone calls promptly?

· Are they timely when meeting you for appointments?

· Do they listen to your questions and concerns and answer them in a way that is forthcoming and that you can understand?

· Does the electrician dress neatly and have a vehicle and tools that look well-maintained?

Electricians who are bidding jobs are on their best behavior. If you already notice that an electrician treats you or others in ways that concern you, better to find another with whom you feel more comfortable.

Step 5) Check It Out

· If you haven't already, check customer reviews. The first section of this article gives details.

· Enter the Contractor's License Number into the Contractor's License Board website for your state. See if there are any "black marks."

· Check the company's rating at the Better Business Bureau at http://www.bbb.org/. Ratings run from A+ to F based on customer complaints made to the Bureau. As a note, an "A" reflects the same level of customer satisfaction as an "A+." The "A+" is earned by an "A" contractor becoming a paying member of the Better Business Bureau, which supports the Bureau in its work.

Step 6) Call References

Don't hesitate to call references. Customers are usually happy to give a good recommendation to help a deserving electrical contractor. You can return the favor later should a homeowner call you. Ask:

· How did your job go?

· Was your job done right the first time?

· If a return visit was needed, was the electrician easy to work with and prompt?

· Was company pricing competitive?

· Was the electrician within budget and schedule?

· Would you be happy to continue to use this electrical company?

Speak with at least three references. Listen carefully for enthusiasm or lack of enthusiasm about the electrician. Clients, past or present, may not feel comfortable saying anything negative. If they express little enthusiasm or say something negative, take this into consideration when making your decision.

A Final Tip: Don't Automatically Choose the Low Bid

A bid may be too low. How can that be? An electrician may intentionally omit items that the job requires, only to come back later saying that additional work needs to be done. On the other hand, some electricians may unintentionally bid low through inexperience. Either way, the electrician may ask for more money to finish the job or may leave you with an incomplete project.

Price is important, but judge the entire picture an electrician is showing you -- character, expertise, the ease of working with him or her, and overall value. A large part of an electrician's value is that he/she gets the job done right and safely without taking too much of your time and inconveniencing you. A very competent electrician can save you money by suggesting more efficient ways to do a job or to save on electricity. When you enjoy a good relationship with your electrician, it can save you both time and money.

AFCI Electrical Safety - Hints For Homeowners - NAPS TV



SAFETY-CONSCIOUS HOMEOWNERS EQUIP THEIR HOMES WITH SMOKE ALARMS AND ESCAPE LADDERS SO THEY ARE PREPARED IN CASE THERE╩╝S A FIRE, YET MANY ARE UNAWARE THAT INSTALLING ANOTHER DEVICE COULD ACTUALLY PREVENT FIRES FROM HAPPENING.

ARC FAULT CIRCUIT INTERRUPTERS, OR AFCIs, ARE DEVICES THAT REPLACE STANDARD CIRCUIT BREAKERS IN AN ELECTRICAL SERVICE PANEL. THEY ARE DESIGNED TO DETECT HAZARDOUS ARCING CONDITIONS AND SHUT DOWN THE ELECTRICITY BEFORE A FIRE CAN START. AN ARC FAULT IS A DANGEROUS ELECTRICAL PROBLEM CAUSED BY DAMAGED, OVERHEATED OR STRESSED ELECTRICAL WIRING. IT IS ONE OF THE MAJOR CAUSES OF THE FIFTY-ONE THOUSAND HOME ELECTRICAL FIRES IN THE U-S EACH YEAR.

THE U-S CONSUMER PRODUCT SAFETY COMMISSION ESTIMATES THAT INSTALLATION OF AFCIs COULD PREVENT MORE THAN FIFTY PERCENT OF HOME ELECTRICAL FIRES. THE NATIONAL ELECTRICAL CODE NOW INCLUDES EXPANDED REQUIREMENTS FOR AFCI PROTECTION IN ALL NEW HOMES. MANY EXPERTS BELIEVE THAT OLDER HOMES WITH AGING WIRING SYSTEMS CAN ALSO BENEFIT FROM THE ADDED PROTECTION THESE DEVICES OFFER.

Call An Electrician For Outdoor Projects


Should you call licensed electrician for outdoor projects? While some wiring projects in your yard are good DIY projects for those who are handy and who can follow instructions, there are others that are best left in the hands of a licensed electrician. It is important to recognize the difference and plan on the cost of having a professional do the job when it is warranted.

Considerations When Doing the Job Yourself

In doing any job, it is necessary to be aware of local codes and the National Electrical Code, both of which lay down specifications for materials and guidelines for work processes when working with outdoor power. Outdoor wiring is exposed to temperature and moisture. By using materials such as fixtures, switches, and cable fittings that were designed for indoor use, you can subject yourself to shock hazards and excessive wear. The codes are very clear regarding the materials you need to use.

As a weekend DIYer, you can find clear direction about materials and procedures that will enable you to run wire from your home to outside lighting. You should always check with your city to see if you need to get a permit before doing specific exterior electrical work.

Jobs that Merit a Licensed Electrician

For many exterior electrical projects, calling in a licensed electrician is the best move. Keep in mind two basic tenets:

If you are doing something that you are not familiar with, call in the pros.
If you are doing a project that is costly, plan on the help of a licensed professional.
Three of the most costly projects that fall into this category include:

Outdoor kitchens. Whether you are talking about adding a stone fireplace that is built outside your home or a full outdoor kitchen with appliances, water lines, electricity, and gas lines, using a licensed electrician will make sure that everything is done according to the codes that pertain to each part of the project. A fully equipped kitchen can cost thousands so skimping on the electrician is a poor choice.

Underground pools and spas. Adding pools, hot tubs, spas, and other water features is often a joint effort between designers, pool contractors, and landscapers, who work together to make sure that the lighting used around or even inside a pool is safe and installed according to code. As with an outdoor kitchen, pools can be expensive to put in and maintain. You don't want to have to pay the pool contractor to redo your shoddy electrical wiring.

Building a porch, patio, or deck. A DIYer might be able to handle adding a flood light mounted on the house to illuminate a patio. However, the more lights you want and the more artful the arrangement, the more important it is to have a professional on the job. A licensed electrician can safely mount a ceiling fan and put the lighting in place that is required by international building codes and local regulations that govern outdoor lighting and proper illumination of stairways.

When you are planning outdoor wiring work, consider hiring a local licensed electrician. They can help with permits and expertise to be sure the job is done right.

5 Reasons to Hire a Professional Electrician


While at home, you may be need of an electrician to help you with several tasks that revolve around electricity, lights, electronic appliances, etc. Apart from that, they are the ones who would help you to install a new electric appliance which is something that is impossible for you to handle. For several, attempting to handle issues related to electricity and is something that is easy and can readily handle them without any qualms. As they are issues related to power which may turn fatal, it is always realistic to hire a professional electrician who can help out in solving all your issues.

While you ponder over the fact that there is no reason to hire a professional when you can easily follow manuals to install electronic equipment and take care of other minor tasks all by yourself. Here are a few reasons why it is feasible to choose a professional electrician to help you out.

Can understand the root of the problem at once - While you hire a professional during a fault in your electrical connection, they would at once understand your problems and not hover around looking for possible areas that may be the reason for the fault.

Trained in their job - No one can claim to be a professional electrician unless they have the necessary training to be one. They need to undergo several training sessions and exams that would finally give them the license to be a professional.

Would do their job well - While they detect the problems with a single look, they are bound to restore the problem in the fastest time possible. You can rest assured that the job would be done right without having to spend time and money by doing it yourself in the wrong way and suffer endlessly.

Protected appliances - While they come over to install or repair your tools, you can rest assured that it would stay protected without any damage. This is because they know the functionalities of most electronic appliances and thus would help in protecting its parts in a better manner.

Saves up on money in the long run - While you intend to conduct electrical repairs at home, the professionals would ensure that the best parts and wires are used to complete the tasks. Allowing people who aren't professionals to take care of such tasks may turn out to be a loss where they wouldn't know the parts that are right for use and thus making you spend all over again whenever there is a problem faced.

Electrician Shopping - 6 Steps to Choosing the Right Electrician


When you're looking for an electrician, look for someone with whom you can form a long-term relationship. It's going to save you a lot of time and money if you can find someone whom you trust to get the job right the first time and give you the right price.

Step 1) Find Recommended Companies

Another approach is to search websites that feature reviews. Reviews appear on many websites including Google Places, Yelp.com, AngiesList.com, and CitySearch.com. AngiesList.com is an excellent source of recommendations for contractors but requires a small annual membership fee. On AngiesList, you can see how customers rated their contractors, including electricians, and details of how their jobs went.

When looking at customer reviews, take a look at the big picture. Is there one bad review among the many good ones? Is it just a grumpy customer? Is there a company reply that clears things up or says that it has corrected its employee?

Once you have three or so recommended electricians, take a look at their websites.

For Commercial Pre-Wiring Use A Licensed Electrician


Commercial pre-wiring is an ideal way to make sure that your new office space is ready to meet your power, phone, and data needs. By working with your landlord, you can often obtain turnkey space customized for you, or an allowance for a commercial build-out that includes both construction and wiring. Using a licensed electrician for commercial rewiring can facilitate your move and prevent your business from skipping a beat as you relocate.

Commercial Pre-wiring of Tenant Build-outs

When you rent space, landlords who hope to keep you there for the long run often agree to build-outs that customize the space for tenants. Some landlords prefer to manage the project themselves with their own contractors who will follow your requirements and specifications. While this can work out well, budget- conscious landlords may spend the least amount possible, which can leave you displeased with the quality of the workmanship done on your behalf. Many tenants find that negotiating an allowance for improvements and then working with a preferred license electrician offers better results. If your company has extensive commercial pre-wiring needs, the allowance will cover part of your cost, and you will be responsible for the rest.

In planning for your wiring needs, whether you work with the landlord's contractor or with your own, consider the installation of:


  • Additional 110 volt outlets placed where you need them
  • 220 lines, depending on the type of equipment you need to operate
  • Electrical Panel dates
  • Custom signage
  • Internal custom lighting
  • Outdoor lighting for parking lot security
  • Landscape lighting
  • Access Control Systems
  • Security Cameras (IP & Analog)
  • Data (Cat5e/Cat6)
  • CaTV/Satellite (RG6QS)
  • Intercom Services (Selective & Broadcast)
  • Central Vacuum Systems

Selecting the Right Commercial Electrician

By having this commercial pre-wiring work done prior to your move in, you can prevent disruption to your own workflow and ensure continuity as you move into the new space. If you have offices and workspaces redefined with walls and partitions, you need to make sure you have all the electrical, phone, and data connections right where you need them. As you plan out how you will arrange the equipment and furniture in the facility, you will see where you need to have outlets, phones and other access located.

When you select a versatile electrician to handle your commercial pre-wiring, you can also lock in a good source for your ongoing electrical needs. The electrician you select should be an experienced and competent asset for your ongoing needs, and by utilizing the same vendors, you can build respect with your landlord that you have the building's best interest in mind anytime you make upgrades or repairs. Your building owner will expect anyone who works on-site to be knowledgeable, treat his property with respect, and not bother other tenants during business hours.

Whether you are a building owner or tenant looking for a contractor, a qualified commercial electrician can manage your needs for commercial pre-wiring of workspaces.

Different Types Of Fire Alarm Systems For Your Business


There are many different fire alarm systems to choose from when it comes to protecting your business and valuable assets in the event of a fire. Not all are created equal and depending on the nature of your business there are many considerations when choosing a system that is right for you.

For most office buildings, the standard fire alarm system is adequate protection in the event of a fire and usually involves a centrally located panel that controls the system. Utilizing sprinklers to put out the fire, the sprinklers are activated when a fire is detected through the use of a smoke or heat detector. Since most smaller office buildings don't use chemicals to suffocate or smother the fire, this is usually the least expensive and cost effective solution.

For larger companies with varied work environments, the fire alarm system must be more sophisticated and designed with diversity in mind to protect not only the structure itself, but also the equipment and data it contains. In the case of a datacenter, standard sprinklers would cause significant damage to computer systems so many companies use a fire suppression system that removes oxygen from the room, effectively starving the fire. This method leaves both the equipment and data in tact and in most cases only leaves a fine powder to clean up after deployment. Since this particular method deprives the area of oxygen, there would need to be some sort of warning mechanism in place so that employees would have time to evacuate the area before deployment.

For businesses dealing with hazardous chemicals such as in the case of manufacturing, there are fire alarm systems that are specialized to effectively suppress fire that involves toxic chemicals. Understandably, there are tighter laws governing the use of these chemicals and the fire suppression technology needed to insure that any fire in this environment poses a minimal risk to employees and the public in general. Many of these chemicals can be explosive in nature when on fire and it is essential that all safety precautions possible be utilized when providing protection for the business.

Obviously the larger the business, the more complex the fire alarm system would be. Often, the system is set up to monitor and deploy only for specific zones. This way, if there were a fire in one side of the building, the sprinklers or fire suppression chemicals would only be deployed to that portion of the building. This minimizes damage to valuable equipment and furniture by fire retardant or water in locations that are untouched by the fire.

An important aspect to any fire alarm system is the human element involved. Yes, you want to make sure that assets are protected as much as possible, but you also need to consider the impact of any fire  suppression deployment on anyone who might be in the location at the time of deployment. Obviously water is the safest for human exposure in the event of a fire, but safety becomes even more paramount when using chemicals. Additionally, there should be visual indicators of fire in addition to audible alarms. This way, those who are hearing or vision impaired will be notified of the fire and know that they need to evacuate the building. Most fire alarms involve the use of audible sirens or bells, but having visual indicators such as flashing lights assists those who may be hearing impaired.

Completing a careful analysis of what has higher priority in terms of needing protection in the event of a fire will help you determine which of the fire alarm systems will provide you with the protection you need while keeping your costs at a minimum. Keeping the company's essential data protected should be a high priority as equipment and furniture can be replaced but customer lists, accounting data or inventory numbers can be impossible to replace. Fire alarm systems are an essential and often legally required way to protect both your business and the people who work there in the event of a fire.

Electricians - What Their Work Includes


Electricians do a variety of work in the home and in commercial premises to ensure the electrical installation operates efficiently and to the correct building regulations. Electricians also operate to the right British Standards.
Testing & Certification
Electricians must make sure that electrical installations are safe in the home or commercial premises. Electrical testing should be completed by a qualified electrician at specified periods and is dependent on the type of property being tested. Electricians will check for any deterioration and also on any new work, which is required to bring the installation up to current standards.
Electricians should test and certify electrical work in accordance with the British Standard BS7671. As with any British Standard BS7671:2001 is being always updated to ensure the electrical safety of your property. Electricians will also inform you of any other British Standards which are applicable to your electrical installation. Work carried out by electricians should only be done in accordance with the appropriate regulations.
Electricians are continually trained on the latest regulations which impact on both domestic and commercial properties. Various training centres are available throughout the UK to support electricians with new regulations for testing and certification and other electrical requirements. Certificates provided by the electricians will be from one of the awarding bodies such as the NICEIC, ECA, Elecsa, Napit or Select depending on the electricians choice.
Rewires & Wiring
Many home owners take electricity for granted. With older properties the wiring may need to be replaced by a competent electrician. It is easy to forget over time the cabling in a property becomes outdated and for safety reasons will need to be replaced. So electricians do rewiring predominantly for safety reasons because old wiring can cause fires and electrical shocks. Here are some reasons why you may need a rewire:
  • You currently have switches in the bathroom
  • There are sockets on the skirting
  • Green residue is found on the wiring
  • Wiring is covered in cotton
  • Rubber cables are black
  • The sockets are the round pin variety
Electricians offer lots of support with rewiring to ensure that you get the right solution. Electricians provide domestic electrical reports to show you the current state of the electrics in your property. This will show you any potential electrical problems. Electricians recommend that this check is performed at least every 10 years.
Fuesbox / Fuseboard Upgrades
Electricians should also offer fuseboard upgrades to further enhance the safety of your electrics. New fuseboards offer different electrical safety devises including RCD's, MCB's and RCBO's. As part of an upgrade to wiring new properties new fuseboards are often offered to enhance the safety of your property. In addition to these services electricians also do the wiring to new build properties, extensions, & conservatories. Any electrical work electricians perform in these areas will be tested and certified by qualified electricians. Again this certification will uphold the requirements of the British Safety Standard BS7671:2001.
Lighting Installations
Lights should be installed by an electrician in most circumstances in the home and also in commercial properties. No only can people enhance the surroundings and interior of their property with carefully designed interior lighting, but electricians can also advise on how to save energy and money with the right energy saving fittings. Lighting is great for security also and electricians will offer solutions for security lighting. Many people also want to have lighting which improves the outdoor appearance of their property. Garden or any other outdoor lighting can be installed by electricians.
Electricians will use their extensive experience in domestic lighting to provide a solution that is right for your home. Electricians will plan the lighting installation with you and complete any installation and testing required.
Security System Installations
Home and commercial security systems can be designed by electricians to suit the requirement of the property. The specification can vary greatly in costs and also the complexity of the installation. Experienced and qualified electricians can provide a solution that will fit with your requirements and personal needs.
Even the most basic of intruder alarms can assist your security, however more expensive intruder alarm systems installed by electricians will offer more opportunities. You can have fully monitored alarm systems, which offer an even greater deterrent to burglars. Monitored alarms have the ability to contact the Police, when a break-in has occurred and also offer fire safety options in some circumstances.
Electricians also install door entry systems, much like the ones you see in hotels and student accommodation. These systems can also have audio and/ or audio plus CCTV additions if required. Electricians will design a system to fit with your domestic or commercial premises and can be integrated with alarm systems. Electricians also combine these solutions with outdoor lighting to offer greater security.

Is Automation Of Industry Good For Us?


The companies matters most in making more money and they are always on the lookout for ways to minimize the costs to make the profits for the products they make. This is where factory automation comes into play. A factory that relies heavily on automation minimizes their expenditure as they have not to pay the labor costs, to produce products thereby increasing profits all the way around.

For every new innovation implemented there is always a debate on the pros and cons of it. So let's discuss over here the advantages and disadvantages of the industry innovation over here.

Automation relies on programmed machines to perform tasks which were performed by a human before. One of the problems is that these machines cost in the millions of dollars, which means a very high initial investment for the company before it starts. Now the investment which is made is meant to be recovered. Now the investor's thinks to recover it fast in the mode of profits but it's necessary to get the investments back either if it's in fast or slow mode. Now it's depend on the way the production is done or starts and how the work gets completed in the right time to get it delivered to the market to earn good profits to recover the investment. So it is very important to choose the way of production to turn the organization into profits. In theory, the investors can make the investment back in a few years by not having to pay an employee to do the job, who was replaced by the machine. But what if the job becomes unnecessary? This means that they spent a lot of money that was not needed. This money can be invested in the other part of business to develop the organization, like hiring skill workers in other departments where machines can't replace human.

The other debate can be as these machines are machines which can replace man but never can replace the brain of man. It is the human who can react to any debacle happen at any time of production, but whereas the machines don't have the much knowledge to react at any debacle till the program for the machine is not structured to do so. Most of us think that the machines are perfect to replace human but it is not the case. The machines have to be updated every time a debacle occurs so that the machine is ready for the next time so that the loss does not occur next time. Whereas the human is always ready for anything and to sort out the problem anytime required.

The other biggest factors affected by the automation of the industry are the humans, because of loss of work. It takes jobs away from the people who need them badly. It does harm the economy because the more people that are out of jobs the worse the economy is. This can change the face of the region.
So there are many advantages and disadvantages of automation, but this has to be utilized limitedly for the benefit of human kind but not to worse hit the human life. Utilize it for the best cause to serve human in the best way.
