Tips to Help You Choose Electricians in Loughborough

It could be a simple light fitting that needs changing, or a fuse box that needs to be replaced. When it comes to electrical work, from the smallest job to something far more complex like a complete rewiring, the services of a qualified electrician are essential.

Choosing an electrician

Finding the right electrician for the job can be a little daunting. Type “electricians in Loughborough” into any search engine and you’ll be faced with thousands of results. So how do you go about finding the best one?

An Accredited Electrician is a Good Place to Start

There are industrial bodies such as the National Inspection Council for Electrical Installation Contracting (NICEIC) and the National Association of Professional Inspectors & Testers (NAPIT) who will have a list of accredited electricians in Loughborough. An electrician registered with one of these organisations will carry out work of the highest standard and their work will last for years, Before hiring an expert you should ask whether they are Part P approved. This means they have been certified and the work they undertake is safe and legal. Accredited electricians will have this certification, but you will need to ask if you’ve found a contractor through word of mouth.

Ask Around for Recommendations

You will know plenty of people who have had to call for the help of an electrician. Friends and family can be a good source of information. There aren’t too many people competent enough to tackle electrical jobs alone, so you’ll have plenty of people to ask for a recommendation. Ask about any horror stories as well, because uncovering those with a bad reputation is equally helpful. Other sources can be local estate agents, property maintenance companies, work colleagues and neighbours.

Ask About Prices

Once you’ve found a number of qualified and accredited electricians you can start asking some pertinent questions. Work out what you want to have done and give each of them a written summary or the work you require. This will allow you to easily compare quotes. It will also help the contractor because it will be clear what is required and they can be informed of any special instruction ahead of time.
