5 Steps to Hiring an Electrician
  1. 1. Search for nearby pros

    It’s safest to leave the repair of electrical systems to experts. Begin searching for licensed electricians near your location as those from further out may charge you for travel.

  2. 2. Do research beforehand

    Ask about rates and if the rates include the materials needed in fixing your switches and outlets. Ask about their experience, if they are licensed and have insurance and if they give guarantees.

  3. 3. Take notes and share them

    Provide your electrician with helpful information about your electrical needs by doing some simple troubleshooting.

  4. 4. Try common fixes first

    Once you have determined whether the problem is localized only to a switch or an outlet, or if it is more widespread, check the circuit breaker panel to see if any circuit breakers were tripped.

  5. 5. Do regular maintenance

    Apart from fixing broken switches and outlets, it is important to have a pro do regular maintenance on your electrical wiring system. This is very important for older homes.
