Finding an electrician is easy, but finding the right electrician can be a difficult task. Some electricians may cut corners and charge you a hefty amount, while others will safely perform the work while offering fair pricing. Here are 5 questions to consider asking before hiring an electrician:
Are you licensed?
In most states, electricians are required to be licensed. The two levels of licensure include Master Electrician and Journeyman electrician. A master electrician is required to have at least two years of professional experience and can both design an install electrical systems, while a journeyman electrician is licensed for installation only. The Always Affordable team is fully licensed and insured.
Are you insured?
Always make sure the electrician you choose to hire is insured. The electrical contractor you choose should carry at least $500,000 in liability and workman's compensation. The Always Affordable team is fully licensed and insured.
What kind of experience do you have?
There are different levels of electrician certification that can be obtained based on training and experience. It's always a good idea to check that your electrician has experience with the type of electrical system in your home.
What projects are you most familiar with?
Like many other contractors, electricians often specialize in one area of work. For example, if you need ceiling fans installed, it's probably not best to choose an electrician who has only worked on lighting on outdoor billboards.
Who will perform the work?
Some electricians may send someone that you didn't originally hire to complete the work. It's always good to check who will be performing the work so you know exactly what to expect. Always Affordable Electric will always be happy to let you know which technician will be performing work in your home.
