					What Electricians Can Do

If we did not have electricians then there would be no lights, computers or TV's in our homes anywhere.
Electricians are skilled professionals that bring electricity in to our homes and make everything operate and
work properly. They safely install wires that carry all the electricity through our homes, offices and also the
factories we work in. Electricians are able to fix any kind of electrical problems we have in our homes and
our businesses. They are skilled workers that have been trained to know how to deal with all electrical
problems and fix them properly and safely.

Electricians may start off by reading blueprints that shows just how electricity flows. These blueprints will
show them where to put in wiring, electrical equipment and even outlets for the plugs. If electricians get a
job where they work on new buildings they draw up new blueprints. Electricians install pipes and tubes
inside of the walls. And put boxes up on the walls to hold all the switches and outlets for the walls. They
pull wiring through the tubes to connect up to the boxes. This makes a path that the electricity will be able to
follow. And this path is called a circuit.

The electrician will add circuit breakers, transformers and other items to control the flow of the electricity.
Electricians always make sure that the right amount of electricity runs to the machines that use it.
Electricians have to follow strict rules when they are going to wire a building. When the electrician is done
with their wiring, they use instruments like ohmmeters, voltmeters, and oscilloscopes in order to measure
how much electricity is running through the system.

Electricians do a number of things like installing wires for a telephone, computer, fire alarm and a lot of
other things in your home. Maintenance electricians can fix electrical machines and also broken wiring.
Some electricians focus only on houses. They can rewire homes and can also replace an old fuse box if
needed. By replacing a old fuse box it upgrades the electric in the house where more appliances can be ran.

Some electricians work mainly in factories. Fixing such items like motors and generators. It is also the
electricians job to inspect equipment and repair it before it breaks down. They will inform managers on
when to replace old equipment. And will install all the new electrical equipment back again. Electricians
may use tools like wire strippers, knives, hacksaws and several power tools. Electricians tend to do a lot of
standing and climb ladders. Electricians work in all weather conditions. They often work in dirty conditions
with hot temperatures. And then sometimes they will work in clean conditions with comfortable

All electricians everywhere should be careful on the job to avoid falls, cuts and electrical shock. They need
to have good hand eye coordination and must be good at seeing the different colors of wiring. Some
electricians often work during the night and also on weekends. Some electricians travel far distances to get
to different jobs they are doing.
