Tips For Choosing The Best Electrician In Calgary

Choosing the right electrical company for your commercial or residential project is incredibly important to ensure that the work is performed correctly and that proper safety protocols are being followed. A simple google search will return hundreds of results of companies claiming to be the best, the most experienced, the most reputable. But how do you know which electrical companies actually have these qualities?

You may need to do some independent research before selecting the right Calgary electrical company for the job. These 4 tips will guide you to find the most competent and qualified electrician for your next project.

How To Find The Best Electrical Companies In Calgary

When looking for an electrician in Calgary, you want the best person for the job. To do this, take the time to check:

  1. Word Of Mouth. When you’re first looking for an electrician and feel like you don’t know where to start, it’s great to ask around. Ask a family member, fellow business owner, or a social media community for their recommendations. If they have a person they highly recommend, that is a great start. And if you know the person making the recommendation well enough, you may even be able to see the project outcomes for yourself. You can also ask local hardware and electrical supply stores and they’ll likely have several businesses to recommend.
  2. Reviews And References. If you don’t have anyone who can recommend an electrician, check for online references. It’s relatively easy to find reviews online through the company website, community pages, Yelp, or Google. Ask the electrical contractor for references, particularly for past clients who had projects completed similar to yours. Talk to their clients about cost and timeline, and their level of satisfaction with the work done.
  3. Licensing And Insurance. Not all operating electricians or electrical companies are properly licensed or insured. Choosing an electrician who is certified and who is properly licensed and insured protects you and your property. To hire someone without these credentials puts you and your business at risk of not being covered by insurance for any damages caused by improper work, as well as legal ramifications if the electrician has an accident or injury while working at your home or place of business.
  4. Credentials, Training, And Experience. Not only should the electricians be licensed, but so should the company. There are various qualifications and licenses electricians can have, and the qualifications required will depend on the type of job that needs to be done. Discuss with the electricians you want to hire and make sure their company can perform the tasks you need. Don’t be afraid to ask for qualifications.
