What do licensed electricians 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 Houston building codes. An electrical contractor’s job also includes installing and repairing fixtures, switches and other visible components of electrical systems.

With today’s technological needs and advances, many electricians in Houston also are trained to install fiber optic and coaxial cables for electronic equipment. Certain electrical companies may design and install data systems and wire for security features such as alarms too. Some electrical contractors specialize in specific areas, such as HVAC, low-voltage appliances and systems and more, so be sure to ask about their training to see if it fits your project needs. You can find more electricians in Hillshire, Houston, Bay Area Houston, Pasadena and Sugar Land.
