When it comes to picking a good electrician there are several things to consider. In turning over the electrical issues of your home to someone, you certainly want a reputable and experienced electrician that will do the job right, following all the local and state code requirements.

Here are some easy tips to follow when selecting your electrician:

 

Ask Questions

Don’t be afraid to ask a lot of questions. You are the judge, and asking questions will help you determine just how reliable this person is with electrical work. Ask how long he has been in business. Does he require payment up front? What type of jobs has he worked on? Listen to how he responds. It doesn’t take long to read someone and just how good they might be.

Ask for References

Check out customers they have done work for.

Check with the State

Check with the licensing authority of your State to make sure they are licensed, and if they have any complaints filed against them.

Trade Associations

Ask if he is a member of any trade associations. A good electrician will usually be a member of a local or national trade association. If it is a local association, call them to see if he is a member in good standing.

Get Bids

Don’t settle on just checking with one electrician. Ask for a bid, and get bids from several others. Be careful in taking the lowest bid. They are typically desperate and probably do not do quality work. You will usually get what you pay for.
