Why Hire a Licensed Electrician?
Hiring a licensed electrician shouldn't just be saved for electrical emergencies. Hiring a licensed electrician is a wise choice even for more mundane electrical work, such as installing a new ceiling fan or adding landscape lighting, Hiring a licensed electrician is a better, safer bet than hiring a handyman or even performing the work yourself. Here are some of the reasons why:
When you want it to be safe and up to code
Saving money is a great thing, and thriftiness is admirable. But in the case of DIY electrical work (or having that handy friend do it), there can be problems. For example, adding a ceiling fan to your home requires a permit. Outdoor lighting has to be able to withstand rain and sprinkler water without shorting out.
Electricians take responsibility for problems since a licensed electrician carries insurance to cover accidents, mishaps, and common mistakes. You, as the homeowner, should not be subject to the errors of your repair person. If an event occurs during or following a repair done by a handyman, you, the homeowner, are liable for the mishap--injuries, lawsuits for lost wages, etc.
When an electrician works on your property, you can be confident that, in the event of a problem, it will be covered. The reason is that a licensed electrician can't get a license unless he passes the licensing exam. We have a stake in the game since our license, reputation, and our livelihood is riding on excellent work faithfully performed without a problem every single time.
Being prepared when dealing with your insurance company can save trouble in the event of a fire, accident, or other mishaps. You can show your insurance company that you have exercised due diligence if you've had your electrical repairs performed by a licensed electrician.
Why else might the hire of a licensed electrician to be to my advantage?

Merging the understanding of modern technology with the old will make your home safer, more liveable, or more economical than ever before.
