There is no guarantee that if once a person moves into a house and buy home appliances one will not experience any problem in future. A fault can arise anytime with the electric wiring or home appliance. One may be lured to save the repair costs by having an idea to dabble repair by himself first. And, if one is not successful they will get the job done by a non-licensed electrician.

It may seem like a good idea but it is not. A certain job is best done if undertaken by a professional. All sorts of electrical work must be carried by a licensed electrical professional. In Singapore, the Energy Market Authority (EMA) is the governing body that issues the electrician license. It is due to the fact that there is a different level of voltage and power supply that is consumed by the domestic and commercial market. Therefore, an electrician having the domestic license cannot undertake commercial repairs and vice versa.
