Tom Jackson of Vacaville Electric is not only knowledgeable in his field, but very professional and great to work with. I had a minor job that I had started myself and since I was dealing with electricity, I did not want to take any chances! I called Tom and he came right out to help me complete the task.

The "mood" is now set for my next dinner party!

Global Shop 2010 held in Las Vegas was a great success. The first and certainly not the last time MODA will be there. MODA was in full force with our large lounge style booth displaying probably the world's brightest LED down light collection. If you stopped by our booth, thank you. We hope you enjoyed the experience just as we did! See you next year at Global Shop 2011!

Are All Electricians the Same?

The easy answer to this question is no, all electricians are not the same. This is true on two fronts, firstly each electrician may be a specialist in a particular area, and secondly, every electrician like any other tradesmen or professional have individual skills and personality traits that may make them more or less attractive to you.
For many people, choosing an electrician is as simple as ringing up the first number in the Yellow Pages, but for other more savvy consumers the choice involves a little more research to ensure that they get value for money and the right expertise for the job. It is true that a qualified electrician will be equipped to take on the task at hand with relative ease, but where job is a more complex one you may wish to ensure that the person you'll be hiring is not only able to perform the job competently but also be able to understand your particular requirements and be able to communicate effectively with you.
Let's take a look at the various types of electricians which will make your understanding of the trade more complete.
* Household electricians. This group of tradespeople are the most common electricians and will be the ones listed most prominently in local newspapers. They will be qualified to perform most of the jobs you need to have done around the house and will be able to offer a complete rewiring service if necessary.
* Construction electricians. As you would expect, this specialist group of tradespeople work in the housing industry construction area and are normally private contractors who work with developers and builders during the construction of a housing estate.
* Auto electricians. Once again, as the name implies, auto electricians specialise in car electrics and will often be called upon to perform the more complex tasks required during car maintenance or, in some cases, car stereo systems.
* Electrical fitters. This group of electricians usually work in the installation and maintenance of electrical systems in large industrial type instalments. This is a specialist area which requires physical endurance as they may have to work in confined spaces and an unusual hours.
* Maintenance electricians. Maintenance electricians usually work in large factories or manufacturing plants maintaining equipment and removing old equipment and installing replacements.
* Mining electricians. With their natural resources boom in Australia, many opportunities have arisen in mines for specialist tradespeople including electricians. These electricians usually specialise in the types of equipment used in large mining concerns including machinery and underground cabling.
* Electrical engineers. Typically, an electrical engineer is qualified through the completion of an appropriate university degree and is quite separate from the normal electrical tradespeople. They will be involved with the design of electrical installations and will also work alongside other professional engineers in complex electrical services project work.
This brief summary will give you a better idea of how the electrical trade is divided into various specialties and give you an insight into the broad spectrum of work they perform.
