When I first moved into my forever-house, I realized that there were more than a few electrical problems. After dealing with non-functional outlets and more than a few lights that didn't work, I decided that it might be a good idea to go through and try to fix a few things on my own. Unfortunately, since I didn't know the first thing about electrical repair, I quickly realized that I was out of my league. Instead of continuing to work on the project, I hired a trained electrician who know what he was doing. After repairing my house, things were much more functional and I felt a lot safer.
