Without a great electrician, you can end up with serious problems, like potential fires. Whether you need to update your fuse box to handle newer and large capacity appliances or want to install a new chandelier, an electrician is someone that you need to have. If you are new to an area, however, you’ll be wondering who you can hire. Here are a few tips to get you started on finding a local electrician.
The first thing you need to do is stay off the computer and search engines! That part will come later. Talk to as many people as you can and look for personal recommendations. Your new neighbors, co-workers, your hairdresser, just someone you have an acquaintance with. Even if you don’t find a few names to research further, you might come away with some names you need to avoid!
Once you have a few names or recommendations, now is the time to hop online and do a quick search. Most online searches these days will give you the option to search for “local electrician near me,” which can help narrow your parameters. Instead of looking at online reviews only, try and look at the websites of the electricians themselves. Learn about their experience in the area, the kind of work they do, etc.
If you are looking for a good local electrician, don’t forget about the importance of word of mouth from people with first-hand experience.
