3 Things to Look for in a Quality Electrician

Dependable Service Since 1926

With the possible exception of the plumbing, your electrical system is arguably the most important of your home. It provides light for your to see, power to run vital appliances, and even heat to keep you warm as our Colorado fall turns to another snowy winter. When your electrical system runs into problems and you need repairs — or even if you’d just like to perform a little upgrade to your system, such as running wire to a new outlet to make plugging things in more convenient — then you need to rely on a professional electrician. Electricity can be dangerous without the proper training and experience, and while enthusiastic do-it-yourselfers can successfully take on a number of projects, that shouldn’t ever extend to electrical wiring. Whether you need a big repair job or just a little home improvement, always trust a professional to do the job.

Having said that, which electrician should you choose? There are a number in the Denver area, and they all should be properly licensed and qualified to do the job. (If they aren’t, it’s time to look elsewhere immediately.) Beyond that, however, there are several criteria you should look for to determine the right electrician for you. Only you can determine who will do the job best for your unique circumstances, of course, but we’ve provided three quick qualifications to help guide your search.

1. Affiliations

Every reputable company will post positive reviews from their customers, and such reviews are a great way to evaluate the quality of the work being performed. But great companies have affiliations and endorsements that go beyond that. Look for the seal of approval from objective third parties such as the Better Business Bureau and local Chambers of Commerce. In addition, North American Technician Excellence, or NATE, provide objective evaluations for companies in this field. A company with NATE certification meets the very highest standards for quality.

2. Guarantees

Not every repair job or installation goes exactly as planned, but a good company is dedicated to your satisfaction regardless of what happens during a given operation. That means up-front estimates and 100% guarantees, all made well before any work gets done. It also means things like 24-hour emergency services made anytime, day or night. Those are the marks of a company that wants your business for a long time to come.

3. Longevity

There’s nothing wrong with calling on an electrical service with only a few years’ experience. We all started somewhere, after all, and new services are often eager to prove their bona fides by doing an excellent job. But a company with a long history of service has built up a customer base that depends on them year in and year out, and wants you to turn to them whenever you need them for as long as you own your home.
