One of the best things about being in the repair business is all the exciting tools that we get to work with on a daily basis. When our electrical contractors are on the job we often get asked about some of the tools that we use for our work so this month we wanted to discuss some of the top electrical tools that we at AllGood, your Atlanta plumbing, and electrical specialists’, think every homeowner should have to help accomplish minor jobs.
Cordless Drill/ Drill Bit Kit
The cordless drill is one of the most used tools that we own and that we can suggest to homeowners. You can not beat the convenience factor of being cordless. There are often hard to reach spots when doing repair jobs that require cordless tools! Along with your cordless drill, make sure that you have an adequate drill bit kit. A drill bit kit can help transform your drill into an do it all machine that can drill into a variety of different surfaces.
A flashlight may not be as exciting as the cordless drill but its an absolutely essential tool when dealing with most household repairs. If you can’t see what you’re trying to do it will be difficult to complete the job!
An electrical cord that is rugged and can be used both indoors and outdoors can be very handy for jobs. Make sure the cord is well insulated. This is very handy if you have to do repairs outdoor or in the yard.
Wire Strippers are also extremely useful when performing electrical work. It allows you to cut a wire to a proper length and you are also able to score the insulation around the wire so that it can be pulled off.
We hope that this is a good start for some tools you need to get some minor electrical work done around the house. For your bigger issues, do not hesitate to call us at AllGood Plumbing.
