When it comes to choosing the right electrician, the options can be a bit overwhelming. With so many tradesmen on offer, it’s essential you pick the right one. Electrical work can be dangerous, and if poorly installed it can even jeopardise the safety of your home.

With this in mind, we’ve put together this guide on how to make the right decision, so you can be confident in all circuitry within your property.

What Makes A Good Electrician?

The competency of an electrician can be broken down into the following three categories. By assessing these qualities, you can determine if your chosen contractor is the right fit for you.

Knowledge & Qualifications

First and foremost, expert knowledge of all domestic and commercial electrical works is essential for any competent electrician. Furthermore, you can determine this by asking questions about the work you require.

If you receive an informed response, you can be fairly certain their work will be to a high standard. Additionally, it’s important to ask for proof of qualifications, such as a City & Guilds certificate. This way you can rest easy knowing they’ve been well-trained.

Accreditations & Reputation

An Electrician who has been in business for a long time will usually obtain a good reputation along with solid accreditations. Endorsements from previous customers and governing bodies can assure you that the work they carry out is of a consistently high standard. We advise looking online for reviews, speaking to previous clients and keeping an eye out for accreditations such as NICEIC to bring you peace of mind

Communication & Punctuality

Lastly, it’s important to evaluate an electrician’s communication and punctuality. After all, it’s no use being an expert with all the appropriate qualifications and certificates if you’re always late and communicate poorly. Fortunately, you can assess these qualities from the very beginning of your interaction. If your contractor turns up when he says he will and clearly communicates the quote, timeframe and when the work will commence, you can be confident they’ll continue this work ethic through to the end of the job.
