Like many highly skilled professionals, residential electricians can choose to focus on a specific area in their field. You’ll always benefit from your solid foundation of knowledge, but you can concentrate on a certain area of the industry to shape your career. Here are a few of the options open to residential electricians.
Service and Replacement
Service electricians are the industry’s troubleshooters and problem-solvers. Service electricians work in existing homes. When something’s not working, they’re called in to trace the problem back to the source, which involves working around the décor and lifestyle of the homeowners. Service electricians work in their community each day and are trusted to keep homes, and the homeowners, safe and healthy.
Unlike service electricians—who mainly work in existing homes—new construction electricians install new electrical wiring and components from top to bottom before construction is complete.
