Ever since Thomas Edison invented his famous incandescent lamp in 1878, electricity has not only firmly entered the life of modern society, but has become an indispensable part of it. Electricity is used not only for almost all household appliances (irons, kettles, hair dryers, food processors, televisions, computers, etc.), but also for industrial equipment. Therefore, even an accident at an electrical station can paralyze the life of an entire city, and a good residential electrician is worth his weight in gold.
The first electricians were highly respected in society. Electricity seemed like a kind of magic for many people that time. They entered the homes of aristocrats, where they not only installed lighting, but also served as consultants. Professional duties of modern commercial electrician have significantly expanded and become much more complex. Today they:
- carry out installation, adjustment and repair of electrical networks (including overhead and underground lines);
- maintain good condition, reliable and trouble-free operation of electrical equipment;
- identify the causes of wear and take measures to eliminate and prevent them;
- ensure the correct operation of electrical networks;
- eliminate malfunctions in the operation of devices.
In addition, an electrician has to clean parts and contacts, draw up sketches, diagnose faults in electrical circuits in various devices and repair them. If earlier, to become an electrician, it was enough to understand primitive circuits, now such specialists must understand the drawings, be able to provide first aid and know the technical characteristics of many devices. That's why you need to trust professionals to work with electricity, but not to do it yourself.
