Whether it is for a commercial or residential purpose, having electrical work done is usually a must. Through some of these questions that were asked, and then answered by a professional Nashville electrician, you can have the peace of mind you’re searching for, and also a little more knowledge on the electrical industry.
What is an Electrical Contractor?
An electrical contractor is a business, or professional that specializes and is certified in designing, installing and maintaining all electrical work throughout commercial and residential buildings and structures.
How Much Does a Nashville Electrician Normally Charge Per Hour?
The maintenance, installation or repairs of electrical work is generally performed through a licensed, certified electrician. The work provided will be done according to code, which can require more or less work, depending on the specific project. This price does not include parts or materials, but only the labor (use of the electrician doing the work). It is also a rough estimate of what the general charge is, though it can be more or less – $75-$95 per hour.
What is a Part P Certificate and When is it Required?
The Part P Certificate is required to work on all dwellings, commercial and residential properties that require electrical work. This work is then set to a certain standard, which means that it has to be done correctly, and up to code and not done in a manner that does not comply. This applies to existing electrical work that is being done, and not new installations, though new installations have to follow a certain set of other standards.
All work that is performed by an electrician is generally done according to codes and standards that they’ve learned in the past. These standards and codes were put in place to ensure that the properties are adequately equipped with electrical components that are not hazardous and are safe to be used.
