flowing through your walls has the ability to seriously injure you in
a split second, and could even kill you in serious situations. You should

improper installation, which can ruin your brand new device, and may even
void the warranty on it in some situations. If you want your new home
appliance installed correctly, trust a professional to do it right the
Hundreds of fires are started by faults in electrical systems every year,
such as shoddy connections, low-gauge wire choice, or even loose wires
left dangling. These are not only against code, but extremely dangerous

home considerably. A professional Marietta electrician is well-versed
in the ever-changing electrical code rulebook and can do the job you need
while adhering to these rules and minimizing your fire risk.
