Your Kelowna Electrician takes the safety and well-being of your household and commercial space into the highest account. Epic Electric has witnessed and fixed many accidents and fires simply waiting to happen. We are always reminding clients to remain vigilant when choosing any contractor to ensure that homeowners know the quality of work they are hiring before securing the job. Check your references, Kelowna and don’t simply rely on word of mouth for your next recommendation.
A Simple Pot Light Replacement Yielded Dangerous Results!
Oftentimes, your Kelowna Electrician is called to complete a specific job, only to discover there has been shoddy workmanship completed prior. Our team is always on the lookout within every jobsite. We are committed to ensuring that you and your loved ones and employees are operating within a safe environment. We discovered a pot light that was very poorly installed and let’s just say, it was a disaster waiting to happen. Despite the warning label stating not to place within any location that may entrap heat, this pot light was suspended from the roof with wires and surrounded by insulation. This is never a wise plan and creates such a potential for fire. We are grateful we were able to amend the situation correctly prior to any tragedy occurring. Especially during this darker time of year when we are all relying on more lights than usual, as our Okanagan sunshine tends to be hidden a bit more these days.
Here’s an example of a previous pot light installation. This is not what you want to see when you look at one of your lighting fixtures.
Quality Work & Safety Ahead of Aesthetics
Epic Electric believes that quality work and safety do not have to compromise the overall aesthetics of any electrical project. While it may be a bit more time consuming to install items correctly the first time, we simply cannot put a price on human life. It is essential that clients discuss the pertinent details and even obtain a written quote from a reputable contractor to ensure that there is a record of the job proposal. Cutting corners on electrical safety is simply a recipe for disaster. Improperly installed items that are not up to code can lead to extreme danger and may void certain house insurance policies in the event that damage does occur.
Checking Integrity Before, During & After
A reputable contractor will be ready to explain their process and answer any questions prior to starting the job to ensure that everyone is on the same page. Our qualified team at Epic Electric in Kelowna is happy to share the outline and scope of your project ahead of time, during and after. Once complete, you will enjoy a clean, secure and finished workspace. Always check into the professionalism and experience of your hired trades ahead of committing. Know what is supposed to occur on which day so you can track your job alongside the contractor and avoid any unwelcome surprises. We understand how busy our clients are and that they are not always available to monitor every job, especially during new construction. Understanding your project ahead of time will help you determine if there are key items you wish to be present for.
