Tips for Hiring a Qualified Simi Valley Electrician

It may not be something you think of when things are running smoothly, but the truth is, at some point in the life of your home, you’re going to need an electrician. The electricity that makes our lives comfortable and simply makes everything work is a major component in every home. Of course many homeowners are knowledgeable enough to do some of the small things themselves, such as rewiring a wall switch or replacing a ceiling fixture. But for the rest of us, anything electrical that requires repairs, upgrades or hard wiring is going to demand the services of a certified Simi Valley electrician.

Finding an electrician shouldn’t be difficult. Finding one that you feel is right for your specific project may take a little more effort.

Where to Look for a Qualified Simi Valley Electrician

Ask family, friends, co-workers or neighbors for possible recommendations. Most people that have hired a Simi Valley electrician in the past will be happy to share their experience with you. If someone’s had a bad experience, they’ll probably be glad to tell you about it. Likewise if someone’s had a good experience with a Simi Valley electrician they’ll probably give him a glowing recommendation. People are often ready to brag about what great service they received. You'll find that we have a good reputation and take pride in our work.

When you find a Simi Valley electrician you’re interested in working with you’ll need to do a little background checking. Call the Better Business Bureau to see if the electrician has ever had any complaints filed by customers. Ask if these complaints were resolved and if it was to the customer’s satisfaction. It’s not unusual for a reliable Simi Valley electrician to get a complaint or two, but what is important is how they handle it. An electrician with a number of unresolved complaints is most likely someone you’d do best to avoid.

Getting a Bid from a Simi Valley Electrician

Once you have a few electricians in mind you can interview each one and discuss your project with them. Ask about experience; we'll be happy to explain to you how a Simi Valley electrician can meet your needs. We offer a quality of service that you will not find elsewhere. After the project is complete, you'll be happy we sent an expert Simi Valley electrician.

Have each electrician do a walk through with you and ask them to explain what they believe should be done and how they would handle your project. Describe what you hope to achieve and express any concerns you might have. Taking a little time with each Simi Valley electrician will help you get a sense of how well you will communicate and if there is potential for a good working relationship. If you feel uneasy about any electrician or have doubts, simply move on to the next one. Remember this is someone that you’ll essentially be relying on for the future of your home.

Find out the estimated time for project completion as well as the cost. Obviously a Simi Valley electrician can’t give you a correct estimate until they work up an in depth quote. Give each electrician a list of what you want included in their bid. The bid should explain the work that will be involves along with the cost of materials and labor. You’ll want to know your payment options. Small jobs usually require payment at time of completion while larger projects are usually made in installments as the job progresses. A time schedule for completion should also be included in every bid.

Making Your Final Selection of a Simi Valley Electrician

Once you have a bid from each Simi Valley electrician it’s time to make some comparisons. An extremely low bid may be tempting but you need to be cautious. A low bid may be nothing more than that but if it seems unusually low it may also mean the electrician is cutting corners, something you certainly don’t want where electricity is involved. If the bid is from an electrician you believe to be reliable you need to ask him how he was able to underbid the other electricians. The fact of the matter is that when deciding on the Simi Valley electrician you want to hire, you should not only choose the bid that’s going to save you the most money but the one that is going to supply you with the most reliable service.

Remember when choosing a Simi Valley electrician, you aren’t looking for the cheapest method of getting the job done. When dealing with electricity, you have to think about the safety of your home and family. You want a Simi Valley electrician that will be thorough, reliable and will take the time to do the job right the first time around. The future of your home and family depends on the reliability of the Simi Valley electrician you hire.

I am very satisfied with the work Alex did for us. He installed to ceiling fans, pointed out and corrected some minor deficiencies needed to bring the system up to code, and was true to his estimate when the job was completed. Courteous, careful, and timely. We definitely plan to call on Econo Electric again.
