Steps to Take When Choosing the Right Home Electrician


When choosing a home electrician, where do you begin? Some people call the first name that comes up in their online search, others pour over reviews, while still others look to the recommendations of friends and family to help them find an electrician. When you’re looking for an electrical service provider, you want to choose one that is referral based and a true craftsman- not just a fly-by-night contractor who hasn’t been trained to safely provide electrical services. What should you look for in a home electrician? We find this list of four qualities to be both compelling and useful.

  • Integrity. Warren Buffet, CEO of Berkshire Hathaway, once said that the top quality he looks for when hiring is integrity. The next two qualities are high energy and intelligence, but it’s integrity that’s most important. You need an electrician with a reputation for integrity, which translates into following through on what is promised and providing high-quality work.
  • Intent. What is on your electrician’s list of top priorities? Is the business geared more toward making money or meeting the customers’ needs? Is quality the company’s primary concern? Choose a home electrician committed to providing superior service and maintaining a staff of well-qualified professionals, licensed, certified and background checked.
  • Capability. You want a home electrician who is a true craftsman, not someone who just decided that electrical work was a good way to make money. Ask about the electrician’s educational background and whether he or she has been trained properly. Choose a company that’s licensed,insured and adheres to NEC standards.
  • Results. A craftsman is known by his results, and the work he’s already done speaks to the work he’ll do in the future. Read reviews and look carefully at what’s being said. Are there satisfied, repeat customers? Is your home electrician very busy because of all the ongoing projects from happy customers? Paying attention to reputation is important when you’re trying to find an electrician.
