Reasons Why You Need A Level 2 Electrician

Jan 26, 2021 | Electrician

Making use of a level 2 electrician means you have more knowledge and expertise to rely on when you are in need. The main difference between a normal level contractor and this higher grade is the amount of training. They also hold a different licence, and can perform different work. They are trained to handle not only repair and maintenance style workloads, but also full installations of systems. This stage gives the workman the allowance to handle overhead and underground electrical services between your home or business. Keep reading to better understand the difference.

1) Meter Installation

At this skill stage, the professional on hand is qualified to install meter boxes for your home or building. This task requires a special skill set as they are dealing with the public power grid as well as your building wiring. Without the proper knowledge there are many things that could go wrong here. This requires precise knowledge of the mechanisms they are working with as any mishaps could cause issues for not only you, but the entire connected grid section – in the worst case scenarios.

2) Disconnection/Reconnection 

Disconnection of power to a building can be due to various reasons. Disconnection can happen due to safety measures or if the customer has not paid their bills. Connecting and disconnecting power to a building requires a set of skills that most base level service providers cannot provide. This qualification is needed when dealing with these elements, otherwise a lower level electrician risks damage to the surrounding area or individuals.

3) Underground And Overhead

Power to any building is supplied through one of two ways, either underground or overhead. Both types have their own advantages and disadvantages and there are certain and specific cases where one of them can be recommended over the other. As expected from the names, overhead travels above ground in cables, running along wires supported by poles. Underground offers a tubed system of mass wiring that can be laid underneath the ground fed to areas. With a higher skill level you can work on all of these types to get the job done right no matter the circumstances.
