Electrician in simple language

Electricity is the foundation of civilization. It creates comfort in homes and apartments, gives us the opportunity to work in factories and offices, helps to relax and have fun in the evenings. If life is arranged, we use electrical appliances without thinking. Problems arise when we start renovating an apartment, build a new house, or once, by pressing a switch, we find that there is no light. In such a situation, people call an electrician and expect a solution to the problem that has arisen within a reasonable time frame with minimal cost. If an electrician is difficult for you to understand, is associated with danger or hateful physics lessons at school, there is nothing wrong with turning to professionals. Unfortunately, even a good specialist works first of all for himself, and only then for us. In addition, the market is full of amateurs, lazy people and just unscrupulous people who are always ready to cash in on someone's technical illiteracy ...

In any non-trivial situations, the result of an electrician's work will largely depend on your ability to correctly set a task, agree on a way to solve it, if necessary, control the process and ultimately accept the job. Understanding how modern electrical wiring works, why you need a circuit breaker or an RCD, what is inside the electrical panel, will help you not only save time, nerves and money, but also ensure the maximum possible comfort and safety for your family.
