Why Hire an Electrician?

Homeowners in Dubai are almost entirely dependent on electrical systems for their daily needs. From simple things like charging your cellphone and switching on a light to running the Air Conditioning or installing that new sound system- electricity keeps us charged and ready for life! Though we may see pretty light fixtures, easy-to-use appliances, and neat little plug points, there is a lot of wiring, grounding, and insulation work behind the scenes. When you move into your new home, making sure the electrical systems are tested and up to the mark will ensure a safe and comfortable stay for you and your family.

Not all of us possess the skills required to inspect circuitry and replace faulty wires. We strongly recommend hiring an expert to do this for you, to avoid any mishaps and ensure everything is where it’s supposed to be. We at Octopus are here to help you light up your home without facing unnecessary resistance! 

Here are a few good reasons to hire a professional electrician: 

Safety

The most important basic requirement in a home is safety. Your home should be a safe space for you and your loved ones. You should be able to rest easy without the fear of live wires, unsafe appliances, and the possibility of electrical fires. Precautions such as avoiding pressing switches with wet hands or touching exposed wires can be followed to ensure your safety at home, but we recommend digging a little deeper to ensure all your electrical components are quality checked and safe for use. Our experts at Octopus will visit your home, conduct on-site inspections, run diagnostics on existing electrical systems, identify potential hazards and replace or upgrade electrical components if required. The ideal time to conduct this safety check is before moving into a new home. However, regular checks are recommended to ensure that all the wires and circuitry are intact and working without a glitch. Our experts will make sure that all the unseen electrical components in your home are A-Okay while maintaining the aesthetic appeal of visible electrical fixtures like switchboards, sockets, and outlets. 

Expertise

Just as it takes a doctor years of education, training, and practice to master his craft, it takes education, training, and experience to be an expert electrician. You wouldn’t call just anyone to take a look at an injury or find the cause of that fever, right? Similarly, you shouldn’t try and fix electrical issues by yourself as this could put you in danger. Call our experts at Octopus who are trained and experienced in their craft. You can rest assured that they will expertly inspect your home electrical systems and rectify any potential problems, without leaving a single wire out of place. It takes an expert’s touch to sort out circuitry and ensure that the wiring stays put in the long run. You wouldn’t want fuses blowing and wires dangling out of place, now would you? When in doubt, always turn to the experts!

Installation and upgrading

Have you found the perfect house with just the right number of bedrooms, the most beautiful views, and the ideal location? Now all that’s left is to turn it into the perfect home for you and your family. The walls, doors, and windows form the body of the house, but electricity is what runs through its veins. Electricity is a basic necessity, from the time we wake up till we shut our eyes to sleep. Call one of our expert electricians at Octopus to help sort out your electrical systems and prepare your house to be lived in. We can install lights, fans, and electrical appliances such as washing machines, dryers, refrigerators, computers, heaters, sound systems, and televisions among others. If you plan to give your home a makeover by changing some of the light fixtures, give us a call and we’ll send over an expert to get the job done. 

If you feel that your electrical systems seem to be sucking too much electricity and running up your bills, it might be a sign that they need an upgrade. Old electrical units tend to yield to wear and tear over time, reducing their efficiency. Our expert electricians will run diagnostics, identify weaknesses in the electrical systems and upgrade or replace components as required. This will not only keep your home energy efficient but also reduce your electrical wastage and keep your bill low.

Energy Efficiency

In today’s world, it’s our duty and responsibility to try to cut down the impact we make on our environment. Electricity production is one of the leading contributors to our Carbon Footprint- the number of Greenhouse gases generated by our actions. Inefficient electrical appliances can unnecessarily increase our electricity consumption, leading to wastage. This could increase your family’s Carbon Footprint. You can take precautions to guard against wastage by switching off appliances when not in use or switching to more energy-efficient options. Call our experienced electricians at Octopus to help you swap out your outdated appliances for more environmentally conscious ones. This will not only help our environment but also cut your electricity bills down.

When was the last time you had your electrical systems checked?

We take electricity for granted because we’re surrounded by it all the time. However, we must not forget that it can be dangerous if not handled properly. We strongly advise against inspecting or tampering with your electrical systems on your own- leave it to the experts at Octopus.  A preemptive inspection and regular quality checks can be vital to ensuring your family’s health and safety.
