A good electrician isn’t defined by their technical skills alone. There are also personality traits and work ethics that separate the good from the not-so-great. And the electrician who’s right for someone else may not be the best for you.
Here’s what you want to look for in your search for a good electrician who meets all your specific need.
Excellent Problem Solving Skills
Good electricians independently make decisions about both the basic and complex problems they encounter on the job. They should be well-trained in a multitude of electrical issues and know which tools and repairs are required. And when they don’t, they should be able to quickly find the information they need. Equally as important as finding an electrician who knows what they’re doing is hiring one who knows when to ask your approval before starting a repair or replacement.
Good Time Management
It’s a genuine skill to be able to estimate and finish a job in the timeframe promised. Not only does it show an electrician values your time, it also keeps labor and other costs accurate. Another key element of time management? Showing up when they say they will!
Attention to Detail
When your electrician focuses on the details, problems get solved more quickly and the work you receive is higher quality. A good electrician pays attention. They aren’t constantly using their phone to text family, friends, and other clients. They don’t blast music that can distract them from the task in front of them.
Dedicated to Safety
Hand-in-hand with a detailed-oriented approach is placing a high priority on job safety. A good electrician not only understands regulations and safety procedures, they’re also mindful to work in ways that keep them and their customers safe. The non-profit organization The Electrical Safety Foundation International takes the issue so seriously it devotes the entire month of May each year to promoting electrical safety in homes, schools, and workplaces.
Qualified electricians also know how important it is to their customer’s safety to stay up-to-date on the latest electrical technologies and innovations. Devices that were once state-of-the-art are constantly being replaced by new ones that don’t work in the same way. If you hire an electrician who relies on old technologies and techniques you could be putting your home and yourself at risk.
