ElectricalWhat Are 3 Qualities to Look for in an Electrician?

Hiring an electrician is about more than finding something to come to your home and figure out why turning on your ceiling fan trips a circuit breaker. You need to find an electrical service that looks at your home as a full electrical system and can approach repairs with the long goal in mind.

There are so many companies advertising their electrical services today, and so many ways to find them, that cutting through the dross to locate the company that will take care of your needs for electrical services in Everett, WA might seem impossible. However, if you narrow your criteria down to these three important qualities, you’ll have an easier time trimming away the unsuitable companies and pick the best one for you.

At G&S Heating, Cooling & Electrical, Inc., we feel confident that we’ll make your final list, and that you’ll join our long list of satisfied clients.

3 qualities you want in an electrical service

  1. Longevity: This should always be the top of the list of criteria for any professional service. A company with a long history indicates numerous positives: experience, knowledge gained from in-field work, ability to relate well to customers, and community trust. A company with only a year or two on its resume may have talented electricians on staff, but the assurance of quality is far less. Look for a company with at least a decade of time in the business.
  2. Licensed: We put this second because… well, if a company has a long history of service, it will of course be licensed with state as electrical contractors. Still, this is something you should always make certain of. An electrical service must produce its license on request to show that it is up-to-date. You can also check online with the state licensing board to see if an electrical service has a current license. Most contractors will list the license on their website.
  3. Offers extensive services: Any electrician can fix a few broken wires and a broken fuse box. But you’re not just looking for “an electrician,” you’re looking for an electrical service. You want a company that can live up to the “service” with the skill to do jobs both big and small, as well as installation of electrical appliances and replacements for major components. Look over what a company can offer you, even if it isn’t a service you need at the moment. You never know in the future when you may require whole-house surge protection or a revamp on your outdoor lighting.
