What should I look for in an Electrical Contractor?

When looking for an Electrical contractor in Manchester and Liverpool, it is important to find a company who has a long and varied background in electrical installations. You will often come across electricians that charge substantially less than other contractors in the market, and it is important to ask why.

There are various ways to check if you are getting a reputable contractor, starting with asking for customer testimonials. Any good contractor will be more than happy to provide you with at least three references from the last six months. Online reviews can also be very helpful in understanding the level of work contractors carry out.

Whether it be on Google reviews, Yelp or otherwise, people who tend to leave online reviews are more likely to be honest in their opinions, particularly if they were less than impressed with the work carried out.

Whilst it is advisable to carry out these checks to ensure you will receive a professional service, with the work being carried out correctly the first time around, there can be those who tend to slip through the cracks. It can be difficult to understand what is required of a good electrical installation if you don’t have experience and therefore, aren’t sure what to look out for.

And so, to help you out below is a concise list of things you can check yourself, to ensure the work has been carried out correctly:

  • Check your plug sockets for any obvious signs of overheating, cracks, discolouration or other damage. If you do come across any of these issues, it would be advisable to have someone other than the electrician who installed it to look at it as soon as possible.
  • Check that all your lighting fixtures are working correctly. Be sure to replace any fault electricals and again, you should inspect your lighting for any discolouration, cracks etc. You will also want to listen out for any buzzing and vibrations, as these are signs that your lighting fixture may be overheating and needs to be replaced as soon as possible.
  • One of the best and most advisable steps to take is the regularly check the origin of your electrical installation. This will be located near to the meter or main distribution board. Around this area, you can typically find a label with a date of when your next inspection is due. Ensure that you get this booked in for the exact date with a trusted electrical contractor. They will happily carry out an Electrical Installation Condition Report to ensure everything is working correctly within your property, keeping your home and family safe.
  • Finally, another quick and effective way of checking your electrical installation is by using a Residual Current Device (RCD). Within every installation, you will find one of these devices, and so to check everything is in working order, this should be tested every three to four months by pressing the T button. This button will cause the RCD to trip, allowing it to think there was an earth fault so that all of your devices will turn off and on again.
