A residential electrician works to plan, install, repair and maintain electrical lines and systems located within the home. Residential electricians are typically trained through an apprenticeship through a local electric company. The apprenticeship typically lasts up to three years and by the time they are done, they fully know how to install, maintain and repair electrical wiring and systems.

Residential Electricians Plan

Residential electricians are involved with the planning of all homes whether it is single family or a multi dwelling like an apartment complex. The input that they put into the job is imperative. They have to determine where the ventilation, heating and air conditioning, light fixtures and electrical outlets go. Often times, a residential electrician will set up a temporary power system so that the construction team can use it during construction.
