Asking the Right Questions before Hiring an Electrical Contractor in Calgary

When you have an electrical problem in your home, it’s a very good idea to pick up the phone and call an Electrical Contractor Calgary. That’s because the electricity in your home is certainly not something to try to handle yourself. If you do, then you could get electrocuted, and you could even put your home at risk of fire. It’s just a bad idea to consider electrical wiring as “DIY” in any way.


“Not all electricians are created equal. When you need to hire an electrician for a residential or commercial project it’s important to not only solicit multiple bids but also to consider a range of factors in your decision.” (6 Questions to Ask Before Choosing an Electrical Contractor)

One good way to choose the right Electrical Contractor Calgary is to ask the right questions. A quality electrician will be more than willing to answer any questions you may have and to give you honest information. If you need help determining what questions to ask, here are a few ideas:


Are You Bonded and Insured?

The electrical contractor you are considering should answer this question without hesitation. It really should be a given; and “insured” should also include workers’ compensation insurance. If they don’t carry a policy of this sort, then anyone who is injured in your house during the electrical work will be able to file against your homeowners’ insurance policy.

Do You Have Proper State Licensing?


It is required by the state that any electrician have licensing. However, that doesn’t stop some people from advertising on websites like Craigslist and not holding the proper licensing. Never work with an Electrical Services Contractor Calgary if they don’t have licensing or you could end up with a big problem if they do poor work.


Is Your Company a Drug-Free Workplace?

Not every company will actually have a drug policy, but it is a good idea to check. You obviously will not want people who could be taking drugs working on the electrical systems in your home.


Can You Provide Me with References?

A quality Electrical Services Contractor Calgary will be more than happy to provide you with references, and it is a good idea to check them as well. A good reputation is one of the best signs that the company you consider knows what they are doing and will do the work well. If a contractor balks at the idea of providing you references, then you may need to do some more research before hiring them.


Electrical work is not easy. It is dangerous and can be very complicated. For that reason, you will want to find and hire the right Residential Electrician Calgary. This is the best way to ensure everything is done properly and professionally in your home. Don’t attempt to do electrical work on your own either. It’s always best to leave these things to the professionals.
