3 Signs of a Trustworthy Electrician

If you are experiencing electrical problems in your home, or perhaps maybe it’s just time for an upgrade, you should always hire a qualified electrician. Performing DIY electrical work is dangerous for yourself and your family.

The downside to this is that finding a quality electrician is often easier said than done. Ask around and chances are good that someone you know has been ripped off by a shoddy contractor. With so many services to choose from in your area, how can you determine who is trustworthy? Just look for these three signs…

The Basics

Electricians are really no different from any other business. You wouldn’t give hundreds of dollars to a random person with no company affiliation, would you? Any reputable electrician should have these three things:

  • Proper licensing and insurance
  • A dedicated phone line
  • A website


When searching for a service, one of the first things homeowners do is look at reviews. There are no shortage of online directories to help connect consumers with service providers in their area. Angie’s List is a great place to start doing your research on prospective companies.
