As we near the halfway point of 2019, it’s a good time to take a look at what’s happening in our industry. Here at Polk Electric, we want our electrical contractors to stay on top of the latest trends so that they can provide the best possible service to all of our customers. Here are some things today’s electricians have identified as major developments in the field.
- Modernizing matters: Just like with any other part of your home, you’ll need to update your electrical system from time to time. Whether it’s rewiring your home or installing more energy-efficient light fixtures, these updates are becoming a bigger and bigger part of the average electrician’s business. Why? People are choosing to remodel rather than build a new home from scratch.
- Repairs and maintenance continue to drive business: When it comes to how an electrical contractor spends his or her time, it’s safe to say that repairs and maintenance lead the way. While some companies may have working arrangements with builders, the frequency of those jobs is almost always outpaced by repairs. The good news for homeowners is that certified electricians are able to handle a wide range of repairs and offer you cost-conscious options if more intensive work is required.
- Safety first: Safety is non-negotiable when it comes to working with electricity. Make one wrong move and it could cause a serious injury – or even loss of life. Thankfully, the electrical contracting industry is always working to find new tools and resources to help keep electricians safe. Integrating smart technology into safety gear is a trend that we predict we’ll only see more of in the coming years.
