Why You Shouldn’t Do DIY Electrical Repairs
Attempting do-it-yourself (DIY) electrical repairs at home is not only risky but can also lead to severe consequences. Here are some risks associated with DIY electrical repairs:
- Electric shocks. Even a minor electric shock can cause severe injuries, including burns, muscle contractions, and even cardiac arrest. In the United States alone, around 1,000 people die each year due to electrical accidents, with many more suffering injuries (ESFI).
- Fires. Electrical fires account for approximately 51,000 home fires in the United States each year, resulting in roughly 500 deaths, 1,400 injuries, and $1.3 billion in property damage (NFPA). Many of these fires are caused by DIY electrical repairs that were performed incorrectly or with substandard materials.
- Electrocution. When working with high-voltage systems, there is a risk of electrocution, which can be fatal. In 2019, 166 workers died from exposure to electricity in the United States (BLS).
- Damage to your electrical system. Incorrectly performed electrical repairs can cause damage to your electrical system, leading to costly repairs or even the need for a complete rewiring of your home.
It is also important to note that professional electricians know and adhere to struct guidelines and codes when completing electrical work. These regulations are continually updated to reflect the latest safety standards. Most homeowners and DIYers lack the knowledge required to understand and apply these codes, which can result in dangerous situations when attempting DIY electrical repairs.
What Is an Electrical Emergency?
An electrical emergency refers to situations where there is an immediate and potentially dangerous electrical issue that requires urgent attention. Examples of an electrical emergency include:
- Electric shocks. If someone experiences an electric shock, turn off the power source immediately and call for medical help.
- Power outages. In case of a power outage, check your circuit breakers and contact your utility provider to report the issue.
- Electrical fires. For electrical fires, never use water to extinguish the flames; instead, use a fire extinguisher rated for electrical fires or smother the fire with a heavy blanket.
- Fallen power lines. If you encounter fallen power lines, maintain a safe distance, and call your local power company to report the situation.
Warning signs of potential electrical problems may include:
- flickering lights,
- buzzing sounds from electrical outlets,
- burning smells, or
- circuit breakers that frequently trip.
In an electrical emergency, it is crucial to remain calm and take appropriate measures. You should also contact an experienced professional as soon as possible to address and rectify the issue.
