948 Charlotte Electrical Contractors

Working with electrical systems generally isn’t a DIY job. That doesn’t include small jobs such as swapping out a front-porch lighting fixture or installing a fan, but intensive electrical work behind the walls is more of an issue. When you consider the possible consequences of a mistake, from fire to serious injury, hiring a electrical contractor seems like a wise investment. More

What Does an Electrical Contractor Do?


An electrical contractor plans, installs and repairs wiring in structures. He or she works closely with the home’s general contractor or remodeling contractor to determine the specific electrical needs for the project and to ensure that the wiring will meet Charlotte building codes. His or her job includes installing and repairing fixtures, switches and other visible components of electrical systems as well.

With today’s technological needs and advances, many electrical contractors also are trained to install fiber optic and coaxial cables for electronic equipment. They may design and install data systems and wire for security features such as alarms too. Some electrical contractors specialize in certain areas: HVAC, low-voltage appliances and systems and more.
