help of a reliable electrician

Here at Mister Sparky by Wise Electrical Control Inc., we understand just how much you depend on your electrical system. It keeps your home comfortable, lights your space at night, and prevents your food from spoiling. Naturally you want to do what you can to prevent your system from malfunctioning, but even if you are completely on top of every single maintenance and protection measure, there’s still a chance that something could go wrong. If that happens, then you will need the help of a reliable electrician, and in this article we at Mister Sparky by Wise Electrical Control Inc. will give you some tips on what to look for in order to know if you have found one.

  • License and Insurance- The first thing you should ask an electrician before you hire them is whether they are licensed and insured. A license certifies that the electrician has done the right coursework and has the necessary practical experience to do the job safely and correctly, and the insurance guarantees that you will be financially protected from any injuries or damage that occur during the course of the job.
  • Communication- Having any kind of work done on your home is a stressful prospect because you are so invested in the outcome. Because of this investment, it’s important to find a professional who will communicate with you and keep you informed of everything you need to know about the project and how it’s coming along. If a potential electrician is slow to call you back or makes you dig for answers, you are better off with someone else.
  • Qualifications and Experience- In addition to licensing, there are other types of qualifications that are worth asking about and can make a candidate more attractive. For example, an accredited master electrician is guaranteed to have at least three years of experience and to offer a 12-month guarantee on their work. Our master electricians here at Mister Sparky by Wise Electrical Control Inc., will provide effective, long-term solutions to any electrical issue you are having.
