If you’re planning to replace wall or light fixtures, work on electrical motors or replace fuses, we have a wide range of electrical supplies and equipment to help you get the job done easily and safely.
What are the different types of electrical products?
You can separate electrical products into three groups: the most common are electrical accessories including plugs, connectors, adaptors, plug-in timers, and extension cords.
The second general type of electrical products are fixtures, which includes built-in switches, receptacles, lighting, and dimmers.
Finally, there is electrical hardware, which covers everything from fuses and breakers to wiring, cables, conduits, boxes, and electrical fittings of all varieties.
What types of electrical work can I do myself?
Small projects like replacing switches or fixtures, installing dimmers, and replacing fuses or damaged cover plates are common electrical tasks most people can do on their own.
When should I call an electrician for help with a project?
Any work that involves altering or adding circuits to your home’s panel box should always be done by a licensed electrician, as should any high voltage work. In general, unless you are an experienced electrician, hiring a professional is recommended, since electricity can be very dangerous. Electricians know the electrical codes for your municipality, as well as how to avoid wiring mistakes that can lead to damaged property, fire, or electrocution.
