When was the last time you gave your home’s electrical system a second thought? When it comes down to it, most of us don’t pay much attention to our electrical systems until something goes wrong. But considering the electrical system in your home is so important, finding the right electrician is necessary. After all, botched electrical work can damage your home and your electronics on top of being a potential fire hazard. If you’re in need of any electrical services, here are four things to consider before hiring an electrician.

1. Is the Technician Licensed and Insured?

One of those first things you should ask a potential electrician is what credentials he or she has. In the case that something goes wrong, it’s important that your electrician is licensed and insured. If they aren’t, you could be left shelling out lots of extra cash to cover expenses for damages.

2. Do They Offer a Warranty?

Some electricians offer warranties, which cover parts, labor or both. Make sure you find out the details about the warranty offered and how long it lasts before you hire an electrician.

3. How Much Experience Do They Have?

Before hiring an electrician, spend some time researching his or her background. Ask about the electrician’s education, training and experience. An electrician who has continued their education and has multiple years of experience will most likely knows the ins or outs of different electrical systems.

4. Are They Up to Code?

Whenever you have an electrician perform any electrical services in your home, the most important thing is safety. Unfortunately, not all electricians are created equal and some aren’t up to code. Before you hire an electrician, make sure he or she complies with all of the codes set forth by the National Electrical Code and National Fire Protection Agency.
