Though there are many home improvement projects that intrepid homeowners can complete on their own, such as painting walls, refinishing floors, and even repairing drywall, all electrical work should be left to professionals. Installing a new lighting fixture or a new outlet is no simple task, and if not done precisely the results can be dangerous or even illegal. Hire an electrician to avoid:
Building Code Violations
In order to reduce the risk of electrical fires, buildings must comply with both local and national electrical codes. This applies not only to commercial properties, but residential ones as well. Violating code, whether knowingly or unknowingly, can hurt the resale value of your home, as potential buyers can demand that you fix the problem or lower the asking price.
Risk of Electrical Fire
Building codes are not arbitrary—they are designed to reduce the danger of electrical fires, which can be set off by improperly insulated wires or other code violations. A small spark can cause a fire inside your walls, which may not be visible or produce any smoke until it has already caused a great deal of damage. An electrician will take all steps necessary to minimize the risk of fires when installing new outlets or fixtures in your home.
Initially, it may seem less expensive to attempt electrical work yourself. If you are not a trained electrician, however, you will inevitably make mistakes, even if you study electrical codes diligently. If your wiring is faulty, it may not cause a fire, but you may have to rip it all out and start over again if the installation attempt fails, which can be expensive and time consuming. Professional electrical work often comes with a service guarantee.
Since 1956, Denver-area homeowners and property owners have entrusted their electrical work to McBride Lighting & Electrical Services. Our electrical contractors provide prompt, professional service. Schedule an appointment with us today by calling (720) 250-9777.

Older homes and commercial properties in the Denver area are often equipped with high-wattage lighting fixtures that consume more energy than necessary, or with fixtures that take outdated fluorescent bulbs that flicker and make some people feel ill. If you would like to save money on your electric bills and be able to use newer CFL or LED bulbs, you should consider having your lighting retrofitted.
During a lighting retrofit, an electrical contractor will remove all outdated fixtures in your home or commercial property and replace them with the latest energy-efficient fixtures. This extensive job requires professional knowledge, as the wiring inside your walls may need to be replaced and new circuits may need to be added, and you may even need a new master control box in order to bring your property up to code
To schedule a retrofit lighting consultation, contact McBride Lighting and Electrical Services at (720) 250-9777. Our family-owned business has proudly served Denver for over 50 years.
