How to find a good electrician

Posted by admin411 On April - 22 - 2013 0 Comment

Electrician is a person who can save you a lot of moneyElectrical fires claim the lives of 286 Americans each year and injure 1,000 more. Some of these electrical fires are caused by electrical system failures, but most of them are caused by overloaded circuits and incorrectly installed wiring. These statistics explain very clearly why every homeowner should hire a professional electrician every time they encounter an electrical problem, rather than do the job themselves.

There are two major types of electrical services: emergency services and maintenance services. If you need an emergency electrical service, then I’m afraid you may not have time to do proper research so you may have to go with whatever your instinct tells you. However, there is a way to avoid this, and that’s hiring regular maintenance electrical services. Having a reputable electrician inspecting your home’s electrical system on a regular basis is the best way to avoid unexpected electrical failures.

Opting for regular electrical maintenance services gives you the chance and time to do proper research before hiring an electrical service provider. The best way to start your research is to ask your friends, family members and neighbors if there is anyone they would recommend.

Remember that word of mouth is the best way to find a true electrician.

Once you’ve gathered a few names, call them and ask these questions:

  • How many years have you been in business?
  • Are you a licensed and insured electrical service provider?
  • Can you give me some references?
  • What kind of work do you usually perform (installation, repair, lighting solutions, etc)?

The most important question of all is whether the electrical company is licensed and insured. In order to get a license, electricians have to be trained and tested by the state and other government agencies that accredit them with being accomplished and proficient at their job. IES Electrical is one of the few companies in Philadelphia, PA that only carries highly trained, educated and licensed electricians. If you’re looking for the best, they are definitely the ones to call.
