    What Qualifications Should an Electrician in Chandler Have?

    As we covered previously, the first thing you need to know about hiring an electrician is that you need to look for one that is licensed, bonded, and insured. This provides you protection in the event that there is any kind of accident or mishap while the electrician is working on your home. Did you know that if an uninsured person you hire to work on your home gets hurt on the job you could be held liable for their injuries? When you hire a professional electrician that is licensed, bonded, and insured you are protected from this type of scenario. A properly licensed electrician will also carry insurance that covers you in the event that they damage your property while working in your home.

    Of course, making sure that a residential electrician contractor has the right credentials should only be the first step in the process. Taking a little time to research any electrician you are considering hiring can save you a lot of headaches down the road. Once you find a qualified and reputable electrician, you can rest assured that any work they do in your home will be safe and up to code.

    How Do I Know If My Electrician Is On the Level?

    Make sure there aren’t any complaints at the Arizona Registrar of Contractors or whatever the licensing body is for your state, county, or municipality.   Another good source is the Better Business Bureau.

    This is important advice.  Trust your gut feelings.  If something seems dicey about the electrician you’re looking at hiring, then do not hire them, particularly is there is  any sort of irregularity with their license or qualifications.  Why?

    Well, electrical injuries are one of the most commonly reported household accidents every year.  If someone is ‘lucky’ they might get a mild shock.  If not, they could end up in the hospital, or worse the morgue.  And it’s not just injuries that you have to worry about.  There is also the risk of electrical fire.

    Let’s say you hire someone simply because they claim to know how to wire a home.  They have an expired license or worse, no license at all.  And they wire your home, and mix aluminum and copper wire together.  There doesn’t seem to be a problem, and everything is working okay, but did you know that you can’t mix those two wires together?  Over time, they can interact and create a chemical reaction that can trigger a fire?

    So stay safe, only hire a licensed electrical contractor in Chandler.
