California Electrical Code Compliance
Keeping up with ever-changing electrical codes can seem daunting for home and business owners. With so many rules to follow, how is the average person supposed to keep them all straight? Fortunately for you, that is our job. Our team of licensed electrical experts at Home Team Electric is fully informed on electrical code compliance and can make sure your electrical installations and projects are completely safe and up-to-date.
Although there is nothing wrong with saving money and getting creative with DIY projects around your home, that doesn’t necessarily apply to electrical work. For the safety of your home and family, it is always best to leave electrical installation and repairs to the professionals. If you have completed some electrical DIY projects in the past, chances are, they may not be in compliance with current electrical codes. Schedule a consultation with a Home Team Electric employee to assess your home for electrical code compliance and find out how we can bring it up-to-date.
