4 Qualities of an Effective Commercial Electrician

Before choosing an electrician for your commercial project, it is important to take the time to determine if they have the following qualities:

1. References and Positive Reviews

References and user reviews from previous clients can give you accurate insights into the effectiveness and quality of the services provided by an electrician. If an electrician has a low user rating or has many negative reviews for the work they perform, they are likely not worth hiring for your project. Should an electrician have many positive reviews for the services they provide, it is likely worth contacting them to learn more. If an electrician does not have many user reviews, ask if they can provide references from previous clients. After reviewing these references and reviews, you should be able to determine if they are worth hiring.

2. Experience and Knowledge

Experience and knowledge are vital for commercial electrical projects. For example, if you are looking to have an electrical service upgrade performed for your facility, it is often worth hiring an electrician that has successfully completed similar projects to a high standard. This experience can be invaluable for navigating unforeseen challenges while ensuring that the job is done right the first time.

3. Effective Communication Skills

Communication is crucial for any commercial electrical project regardless of the size or complexity. Effective communication starts long before an electrician arrives at your facility to start work on your project. Take note of how an electrician communicates over the phone or email and how well they explain their process to you. If you are left with several questions or feel as though they were not honest about their process, it may be best to contact a different electrician.

4. Insurance and Licensing

Commercial electrical projects can be difficult and potentially hazardous, especially for older properties. That is why it is crucial to only consider licensed electricians that have proper insurance for the work they will be performing. This will ensure that you are not held liable for potential injuries while eliminating any uncertainty for permitting or electrical code requirements.
