Why is level 2 electrician different from normal electrician job?

Electricity matters are sensitive matters that should not be handled by untrained persons. The power of electricity is so strong that it can electrocute one and lead to death. Statistics also show that most home fires are caused by electricity.

Poor wiring, a faulty electrical panel, loose power switches, and malfunctioning ground fault circuit interrupters (GFCIs) are warning signs of a dangerous power electrical system and should not be taken lightly. An electrician is a person who specializes in the installation, repair, and maintenance of an electrical system.

There are three types of electricians, normal (level 1), level 2 and level 3. In this article, we will see how level 2 differs from the normal work of an electrician.

Normal electrician

The normal electrician focuses primarily on the repair and maintenance of the electrical system at home or at work. If you have an emergency in your home, you can contact a regular electrician to conduct an electrical inspection.

A regular electrician will help repair loose faulty switches in the house, replace a faulty wiring system, install or repair ground fault circuit interrupters (GFCIs) for wet areas of the house, and replace broken circuit breakers.

Normal electricians are trained and licensed to expand the interesting network to connect your property and increase the capacity of the electrical network.

Electrician Level 2

The main difference between a normal electrician and a Newcastle level 2 electrician is the level of training and license they possess. Level 2 electricians are better trained to handle not only repair and maintenance, but also to perform installations.

Level 2 electricians can handle overhead and underground electrical services between the customer, their home or business, and a utility grid. Below are the services provided by Level 2 electricians.

1.  Meter installation

The level 2 electrician is licensed and authorized to install a power meter in your home. You need a meter to keep track of your energy usage and billing.

2. Disconnection and re-connection

Electricity distributors may authorize the disconnection of the power supply to a customer due to various reasons such as; security measures or if the customer has not paid their electricity bill for a long time. To do this job, power distributors will send a level 2 electrician to disconnect the power supply because they have the skills to do so. Once the issues are resolved, they will also send a Level 2 electrician to reconnect the power source.

3. Underground and overhead power supply

Electrical energy is transmitted through two ways, underground or overhead. Both types have their own advantages and downsides and there are special cases where one among them will be recommended to the other.

Underground power supply involves the use of cables that run underground, while overhead cables use poles and electrical cables to supply power. Level 2 electricians can install an overhead or underground power supply. They also replace faulty power poles or wires.

4. Improve power

Electricity is connected in single phase or three phase. Single-phase is mainly used for domestic use, while three-phase is used for industrial or commercial use. The single-phase has two wires, the live and the neutral, while the three-phase has 3 active and one neutral. If you need to change your electricity supply from one phase to three phase, you can contact a level 2 electrician who will do so with confidence.
