What to Look for When Hiring a Professional Electricians
Hiring a local electrician near you will help you to quickly resolve any electrical problems you may have in your home or business place.
Consider what qualifications your hired electrician must have before contracting for work.
1. Find an Electrician that carries a valid licence.
Choosing unlicensed electricians to accomplish even a simple electrical work, such as lighting installation, will risk prosecution and safety. Ensure that you carefully verify the credentials of your licenced electrician.
Always check the details including the licence types and/or certificates to confirm validity. You may consult the regulatory body responsible for issuing licences to check the electrician’s qualifications.
2. Has a good track record.
Check if your licensed local electrician has a good reputation. Is the electrician receiving positive reviews – online and offline – from previous clients?
Ask recommendations from friends or neighbours to refer competent contractors. You may also seek information from the contractor itself. Ask relevant questions such as the type of electrical work they usually do.
3. Quickly resolves your concerns.
Expert electricians value urgency, especially when rectifying electrical problems. If your safety switch unexpectedly trips, can you expect your prospective electrician to promptly attend your home?
This is specifically applicable to property owners needing an emergency electrician when the power is interrupted, the switchboard malfunctions or appliances need immediate repair.
Choose a local electrician who prioritises your safety, cost and time requirements.
Note: Clarify licensing restrictions before hiring. In some states like Queensland, unlicensed tasks such as authorised testing of electrical equipment are allowable under the Electrical Safety Act 2002.
