Finding an electrician

An electrician is a qualified specialist in all things electrical to do with an average home, whether it be changing a light switch, rewiring an appliance or repairing an electrical fault. Finding a well qualified electrician that you can also trust to do your job well can be tough, but Plentific can take the time and stress out of your search. The Plentific website can quickly generate a contact list of the best electricians in your local area, each of which will have a Plentific profile displaying their qualifications, customer reviews and past projects. Finally, each and every job booked via Plentific will also be covered by the Plentific Guarantee.

What do you need to know about finding a local electrician?

Electrical work goes beyond the DIY spectrum and therefore it’s essential a professional is contracted. A way of measuring the credibility of an electrician is to ascertain whether they are registered with a government-endorsed competent person’s scheme. The website Electrical Safety First provides a search tool to verify this – accreditation can be with NAPIT, NICEIC or ELECSA.

When you are trying to find the best local electrician always ask to see proof of your electrician’s qualifications. Those working in England and Wales must comply with Part P building regulations. Furthermore, in order to protect yourself and your home, ensure that your electrician has the paperwork confirming that they have public liability insurance and a warranty police - should anything go wrong.

You also need to find an electrician who specialises in the projects you need doing – is the work focussing on installing, maintaining or troubleshooting the wiring in your home? Planning is key when hiring an electrician as part of a larger project, such as a renovation. Electricians will work from plans generated by a designer or architect – these plans will show locations and fixture types for outlets and switches and will need to be supplied to your electrician.

Plentific also recommends obtaining quotations from at least three separate electricians in order to gain some clarity of the market rate.

Once you have your quotations, ask to obtain references from previous customers. Electricians can often receive work through word of mouth but this is not a guarantee of the quality of their work.

What does an electrician do?

Electricians can carry out safety tests, installations and maintenance on your home’s electrical system. This includes assembling, installing, test, and maintaining electrical or electronic wiring, equipment, appliances, apparatus, and fixtures as well as using hand tools and power tools. An electrician can also diagnose malfunctioning systems, apparatus, and components, using test equipment and hand tools, to locate the cause of a breakdown and correct the problem. In terms of testing, they can also assess the continuity of circuits in electrical wiring, equipment, and fixtures,

How much does it cost to hire an electrician?

Most electricians charge by the hour and they will invoice you for the number of hours they predict the task to take. There are flat-rates for electrical safety tests but there will be additional charges, should there be an out-of-hours call or an unforeseen problem in the project that requires extra time and expertise.
