Electricity is a wonderful thing. It powers our homes and provides light and heat. However, electricity can also be very dangerous. If you are planning to carry out repair or installation work on your property's electrical system, it is important that you understand how to stay safe. For many years, I was wary of the electrical system in my home. However, one day when a contractor was replacing a section of wire, we started talking. He gave me lots of great advice which gave me the confidence to start doing little DIY electrical jobs. I decided to start this blog to ensure other DIY enthusiasts stay safe while working with electricity.
