Choosing an electrician.

Hello! Many of you have ordered parts but often pondered - "now how in the heck am I supposed to install this?" And that is more than okay. To be fair, 97% of us lack knowledge on an intercoms, bathroom fans, and central vacuums. So you plan to hire an electrician, but cant figure out whats fair and not in the world of hiring help. Here are some tips to help you find a quality hand to enter your home and offer aid.

Keep in mind there are many different contractors out there that have varied experience and knowledge so be sure to ask and ask again to make sure everyone is on the same page. Google will undoubtedly be your best friend here. Look for a website, yelp reviews, or anything else you can unearth on said contractor. If your man has wronged someone in the past, then there most certainly will be information regarding it. Always compare estimates for the job so you get a ballpark figure of what your going to be spending. Get an early sense of your electricians grasp of what exactly he knows, as many can bluff their way to getting knee deep into something they know nothing about. Ask someone who has used him before. Even in this age of having an abundance of knowledge at our fingertips, word of mouth is still a powerful tool.

So there you have it. Make sure to review everything before hiring help! It could save you from quick and painless to tiresome and frustrating. Hope this helps! Good luck DIYers.
