Choosing an Electrician

Do you know what to look for when you are choosing an electrician?

If you type “electrician in Coventry” into your search engine there will be hundreds of results to choose from. So, how can you tell the good electricians from the bad? Electrical Experts have earned a reputation as the trusted, go to expert electrician in Coventry. We have put together this guide to choosing an electrician to help you make the right choice. 

Choose a Qualified Electrician 

Working with electricity is a dangerous task and it shouldn’t be attempted by anyone but a qualified electrician. Much of the electrical wiring in your property is hidden from view and it can be hard for you to tell if something has gone wrong. This makes it especially important that the person working on your wiring knows what they are doing. If work is of a poor standard, you and your property could be left in serious danger of either electrical fire or shock. Qualified electricians are highly trained to work safely and competently with electricity. They will work in compliance with current regulations and will exercise best practice to keep you and your Coventry property safe. 

Choose a Registered Electrician 

A qualified electrician can register with one of two governing bodies, either NICEIC or NAPIT. They rigorously assess an electrician’s competence and guarantee their compliance with all current regulations. Both governing bodies operate within the Competent Person Scheme to support Building Regulations and their members are permitted to self-certify their work. By choosing a registered electrician you can rest assured that they will have demonstrated high levels of technical competence and will meet strict standards for safety, quality and compliance. Electrical Experts Coventry are proudly registered with NICEIC and can be found on the Government-endorsed Competent Person Register, meaning all our work complies with building regulations. As NICEIC registered electricians we are covered by their Platinum Promise, covering us for up to £2,000,000 public liability insurance. By choosing a registered electrician you can be certain that you are in safe hands. 

Choose a Recommended Electrician 

As with most small businesses, reputation is everything for a local electrician. When you are looking for a reliable local electrician, ask your friends and neighbours for their recommendations. You will find out quite quickly which electrician provided them with great service, and which ones should be avoided! You can also ask local, trusted tradespeople who they would recommend. Good tradespeople like to work with members of other trades whom they can rely upon to provide a professional service. 

If personal recommendations are not forthcoming, then online review sites such as Google Reviews and Checkatrade can also provide a valuable insight into an electrician’s working practices. My team and I at Electrical Experts are proud of our 10/10 Checkatrade score and 5-star Google Review rating. You can view some of our customer testimonials here.
