How to Hire an Electrician

Hiring a qualified electrician in Melbourne Florida can be challenging and you may have a number of questions. Although, electricians have more rigid licensing guidelines than some other professions it can still be hard to make the right choice. When hiring an electrician always ask to see their license and proof of insurance and make sure these documents are up to date.

There are two levels of experience to consider when hiring an electrician.

Master Electrician
Passed the test and has at least two years of experience
Knows National Electrical Code as well as state specific modifications
Can plan, design, install and maintain the electrical system for your project

Journeyman Electrician
Hasn’t qualified for the master license yet, still licensed by the state
Cannot design systems but can install wiring and equipment

Electricians often have specializations. They might strictly perform commercial work, new construction, service calls or general electrical work. If you have a trustworthy contractor or HVAC person they might recommend an electrician for you. Tell them what kind of work you need done so that you can get matched to the appropriate electrician.

Always ask for license and proof of insurance and follow up with references. The references should be verifiable and can show that the electrician was professional, reliable and courteous. You also want an electrician who will offer a guarantee for his work. Most electricians should offer a warranty for their services.
