1. 插座安装 & 更换
有很多博客文章, 文章, and videos online claiming that installing or replacing your own electrical outlets is safe and easy. All you have to do is turn off the room’s circuit breaker, and the rest is simple, right? 错误的! Installing or replacing an electrical outlet or light switch is a project that requires a trained, 授权的电工. 布线很容易出错.

在最好的情况下,一个线路不好的插座根本不会工作. At worst, it will cause a short that can damage your hardware or even cause a fire. 不值得冒这个险!

2. 灯具维修 & 更换
新的灯具能改变房间的面貌. It’s a surprisingly cost-effective upgrade that can brighten your home’s interior and create a premium look that potential buyers will love. 但, 它真的像移除旧设备那样简单吗, 把几根电线缠绕在一起, 安装新的固定装置? 它不是. In reality, there’s a lot that can go awry if you wire and install a new light fixture yourself.

和电源插座一样, a DIY light fixture replacement risks everything from a nonfunctioning fixture to serious damage to the fixture and your wiring to shorts and electrical fires. 不要用你的新灯具偷工减料! Just call CMC电, and we’ll provide a fast, affordable professional installation.

3. 吊扇安装 & 修复
A ceiling fan can make a room much more comfortable on a hot day, potentially saving you money by keeping the AC off longer or running less overall. It may seem obvious that ceiling fan installations aren’t a DIY project, but a surprising number of homeowners attempt these projects themselves. 这不仅是潜在的危险, it’s actually against the law to run new wires yourself without a license!

4. 配电板的工作
Electrical panels take the electricity from the grid and splits it to the various circuits throughout your home. 它们还通过断路器来传输电力, which cut the electrical flow when a short or surge is detected. 这些都是非常重要的系统, and they’re also highly technical pieces of equipment that are very easy to install incorrectly. Faulty electrical panel wiring can lead to poor power quality, 不可靠, or even dangerous faults that can cause expensive damage or even a fire.

If you’ve recently installed an addition on your home or are considering running power to your backyard shed, 别拿你的线路冒险. It can be tempting to run an extension cord to your shed or detached garage, 但这实际上是违法的!
