by Chris Patt
It becomes very important to ask a few questions whenever hiring an electrician for any electrical work after all it’s a matter of safety to find the right electrician or electrical contractor. Electrical problems such high electricity bill, circuit overload, tripping, lights flickering, electrical shocks and fires etc. can happen anytime.
Ask the following questions to avoid inferior electrical work:
For fixing the electrical problems or issues, we hire an electrician and its good. But before going further, do ask them some questions first so that you can get a genuine and licensed electrician with the right experienced for electrical works.
Are you a licensed electrician?
In true sense, a licensed electrician has the right to work in their field while certified one recognizes their experience levels. After knowing them, you will easily understand what is right because there are many electricians who call themselves a licensed electrician but they are not actually. So, always ask as much as possible questions to get the job done in the right way.
Are you covered by insurance?
The works your hired electrician will do could damages your residential, commercial and industrial properties e.g. houses, buildings, apartments, plants or factories etc. if things go wrong. If the hired electrician and electrical contractors are not insured, it can cost you too much.
An insured electrician always take care of these things and are ready to offer quality electrical services with the updated documentation (license, a legal agreement and covered insurance). Ask this question whenever planning to hire an electrician or electrical contractors for electrical works.
Do you offer a warranty?
Always ask for the warranty and look for whether the electrical parts or its services are under the warranty and how long it is effective. Only certified and licensed electrician can offer such a warranty.
Who will do the electrical work?
Ask electrician frequently, who will do the electrical work? After getting the answer to this question you will be able to decide who is going to do the job if he gets hired. It could be the owner, employee or sub-contractor but everything has its own limitations and preferences.
How many years of experience do you have as an electrician?
Experience is as important as having a license because it may be that you are very educated, but without any experience, they are all useless and not of any use. What happens actually? An electrician who has done proper education in the electrical field know the code but he has no idea and doesn’t know completely how to implement them whenever it needs due to the lack of experience. Never forget to ask this question to the electrician or electrical contractors before their hiring.
Only an experienced and certified electrician can understand the importance of quality electrical services and keep the customer away from unexpected electrical expenses and its repairs.
