					What An Electricians Job Is Like


Without electricians we would have a hard time living in our homes. We are so use to having our lights,
computers, TV's and other handy items that run off of electricity around our homes. Electricians help to
bring all of this into our homes. They wire our homes for electricity so we can live easier and function better
in our homes. Houses, offices and factories run smoothly because of the work of electricians. Electricians
can do many useful things for homes and businesses alike. Electricians are needed to fix, repair and maintain
electrical items in our homes and businesses.


Electricians read maps that are also called blueprints. These blueprints show how electricity flows.
Blueprints show where to put wires, outlets and also electrical equipment. When ever a electrician goes to
work on a new building, they draw up new blueprints for the project. Electricians run tubes through the
walls. And small boxes on walls to hold outlets and switches. They connect the boxes by pulling wires
through the tubes to make a path for the electricity to follow. This is called a circuit. Electricians do many
other jobs including adding circuit breakers, transformers and other equipment to control the flow of
electricity. Electricians make sure that machines get the right amount of electricity that they use. Electricians
are skilled and qualified professionals.


When wiring a building electricians follow strict rule about how they do it. Electricians use voltmeters,
ohmmeters and oscilloscopes after they finish wiring to measure how much electricity that is running
through the system. Electricians can install wiring for telephones, fire alarms and computers. They
sometimes use fiber optic cable. Maintenance electricians fix electric machines and broken wiring. Some
electricians focus mainly on houses and rewiring a house. Electricians replace old worn out fuse boxes with
new fuse boxes that can run more appliances. Some electricians work in factories and fix items such as
generators, robots and motors. Electricians have training and knowledge of their work.


Electricians inspect equipment to make sure it is operating properly. And if it is not they will fix it before it
breaks down. They inform managers of when to replace equipment and they also install new electrical
equipment. Electricians use different tools to work with like knives, wire strippers, power tools, and
hacksaws. Some electricians will stand for a long time doing their work and climbing ladders. Electricians
often work in dirty and dusty areas. But then some work in clean areas. They sometimes work in hot and
cold temperatures. Electricians should try and be careful doing their work to avoid accidents such as falls,
cuts and even electrical shock.


Electricians need good hand eye coordination. They must also be able to tell what the different colors of
wire are for electrical work. Some electricians work during the night and sometimes on the weekends. Some
electricians travel far distances to get to their job site. While other electricians do work in their local area.
Electricians are dedicated professionals that keep our homes and businesses running smoothly.
