What does An electrician do?

Their job is to plan, install, and maintain electrical and power systems across multiple environments. These systems could be located in residential homes, commercial or industrial buildings, as well as large pieces of equipment like industrial machinery. Electrical technicians are divided into two major categories: inside wiremen and outside linemen. Those working inside often focus on the wiring of buildings. They install electrical systems in buildings, troubleshoot problems, and replace older systems. On the other hand, outside linemen install and maintain outdoor electrical power lines. They work with transformers, traffic signals, transmission lines, and so on. While these two are the main concentrations, these experts are responsible for more specific jobs depending on the industry and their specialization.

Common tasks of an electrician in Amsterdam

The daily life of these professionals is never the same, considering the wide variety of electrical work that needs to be undertaken. Especially not in Amsterdam, since the houses are very diverse and so are the people. In general, they:

  • Read blueprints to determine the location of circuits, outlets, panel boards, load centres, and other electrical components.
  • Install and maintain electrical systems.
  • Test, inspect, install, maintain, and repair/replace electrical equipment.
  • Inspect electrical systems to ensure they are operating properly.
  • Repair short circuits, and so on.

It's quick, easy, and we only need a few details to get started. The first step is to select the job or service you need. Then, enter your location and telephone number for easy communication. Be sure to give as many details as possible about the job you need to be done.

The pros of hiring via Zoofy

There are several reasons why you should hire an electrical technician via Zoofy, including:

  • We work with reliable and experienced local experts.
  • No call-out fee.
  • Pay securely after the work is done via iDeal or Tikkie.
  • We ensure you get the best available price.

The cost of hiring an electrical technician

Most experts charge an hourly fee, plus the cost of materials and parts if needed. Expect to pay €65/h incl. VAT. This cost will, however, vary depending on the type of project you're looking to have done. For instance, small jobs like installing or repairing outlets or switches will cost less than extensive electrical work like replacing an electrical panel. Sometimes, you can recover the amount of money spent on such projects on home insurance. For instance, if damages are caused due to a short circuit or other faults that aren't your doing. This will depend on the coverage and policy values, of course.
