Circuit breakersAn electrician is a person who installs, maintains and repairs electrical wiring and fixtures in private homes and business facilities. An electrician can do tests and inspections, wiring and rewiring, lighting installation and fuel box upgrading.

Here are all of the responsibilities a licensed residential electrician has:

  • To pull wire through conduits and through holes in walls and floors.
  • To join and connect wires to fixtures and components to form circuits.
  • To provide preliminary sketches and cost estimates for materials and services.
  • To replace or repair equipment, wiring, fixtures, using both hand and power tools.
  • To connect electrical power to sound, signaling devices, heating, and cooling systems.

In order to perform all these activities, an electrician normally comes with his own tools and equipment that include: pliers and cutters, screwdrivers, fish tape, hammer, flashlight, meters and gauges, AC/DC volt meter, and scissors.
