Things to Remember When Hiring Electricians

Electricity is an important innovation in our world. It has given us a great deal of convenience and allowed us to do a lot of things with even just a flick of a hand. It has lighted up billions of homes around the globe — definitely, we’re now way past the “dark ages.”

However, even though you have the best technologies in your property, you can’t be certain that your electrical system will always be in top condition. Every now and then, you may experience some glitches; old appliances may start to malfunction or stop working all of a sudden.

When you experience this, make sure to call a professional electrician. Sure, you can try simple troubleshooting but remember that this is very risky. You might end up with worse damage, and you might put yourself and other people in danger.

Common electrical problems

Electrical problems are one of the usual causes of fire; that’s why it’s important to keep your appliances and electrical systems well-maintained. At the first sign of defects or failure, don’t hesitate to contact your local electricians so that they can have a look at the problem and find a safe and effective solution.

Being a homeowner for years now, you may have experienced some of the most common electrical problems. You may have panicked, or you may have simply ignored them. When dealing with electrical issues, you should keep a cool head and immediately find an electrician.

Here are some problems that professional electricians typically handle:

  1. Flickering lights
    Sometimes it’s difficult to tell if your bulb is just old or faulty. If it’s the latter, your wiring may be loose or there’s a crack somewhere in the internal components. Be careful because when a loose plug partly falls out, anyone who unplugs it could receive a shock. Changing the bulb won’t be enough as the problem may be in the light fixture.

  2. Burning smell
    When you notice any odour coming from switches or outlets, turn the power off right away and only get it back on when it has been checked by an electrician. A burning smell could be a prelude to an electrical fire, so it’s best to find an electrician as soon as possible.

  3. Sparks
    Sparks are typical when you plug in an appliance for the first time. But when it happens too frequently or the sparks are large, you may need to address a problem with your outlet or circuit. If there’s a popping sound, you may be dealing with loose wiring.

  4. Outlets are not working
    Outlets that are not working can be really frustrating, and they’re dangerous as well — they could mean a serious electrical problem. There are many possible reasons for this: It could be because of a tripped circuit breaker, or your outlets are simply faulty or burned out.

  5. Electrical shocks
    Have you ever noticed a shock crossing a carpeted surface? Don’t worry; this isn’t really a cause for concern. It’s just static, and it's very common in the winter. However, when you touch an appliance and feel a slight tingle or mild shock, this could be due to a ground fault or improper electrical wiring.

Types of tasks done by professional electricians

Apart from remedying common electrical issues, electricians are skilled and equipped to take on other tasks too. The range of work that they can do is quite broad, so it’s important to know what category of electrical work your job falls under. This will also help you in hiring an electrician who’s qualified for your needs.

  • Installations. From ceiling fan installation to security system installation, electricians can set up different appliances and electrical systems. They do power point installation too, and if you need a home theatre installer, they’re the right people to talk to.

  • Wiring and rewiring. Proper wiring is essential in any type of property, so you should get someone who is highly skilled in this type of work. Anything that is incorrectly done could lead to serious hazards.

  • Air conditioning and refrigeration. There are various types of air conditioning system, and to find the one that best suits your needs, you’ll need an expert advice from a qualified electrician. For air conditioning and refrigeration work, you should look for a specialist.

  • Data and network cabling. An electrician’s expertise may also include network cable installation, data cabling, and telephone socket installation.

Things to check before hiring electricians

Electricians are involved in jobs that are sometimes high-risk. That’s why you need to find a sparkie who can do tasks safely and efficiently. When hiring electricians, you should be very meticulous. Take note of these things so that you can be sure you’re getting a qualified person for the job:

Licence and insurance

Having licensed electricians guarantees quality work that also meets Australian Standards. In WA, four types of licences are issued to professionals:

  1. Electrical contractor licence - business licence only
  2. Electrical installation licence - required for electrical work
  3. Electrical training licence - for apprentices and trainees
  4. Restricted electrical licence (REL) - for tradespersons other than electricians (they cannot perform electrical wiring jobs, install power points and lighting, or fix electrical connections)

Meanwhile, an insurance can give you peace of mind in case an accident happens. Sometimes no matter how experienced or skilled your sparkie is, unfortunate circumstances and dangerous situations could still arise.

Customer reviews

Apart from their qualifications, you should also look into the professionalism of the businesses. You might encounter electricians with good credentials, but you might regret hiring them if you find out that they are not respectful and prompt. So before you enlist their help, make sure that they deal with their clients professionally.

You can get a glimpse on this aspect by reading customer feedback. Check out these reviews on some of the top businesses in Perth:

”Great old fashioned service. Efficient quote and timely service. Highly recommended. Also one of the few tradesmen that cleaned up properly after himself. Thanks Chris! Will be seeing you again for some more work.” - Scott from Parkwood, WA on Wheatys Electrical

”Highly recommend Scott and his team for the electrical and airconditioning work. Scott was as flexible with time as possible, the work was performed well and kept to the fixed price. Thanks Scott.” - Mark from Bull Creek, WA on Scott Thompson Electrical Services

”They came when they said they would (yay!). They were polite and friendly and didn't talk down to me. Not all of what I wanted was actually possible, but they suggested acceptable alternatives which even cost less than the original (and very reasonable) quote. They cleaned up after the job and moved furniture back into place. I recommend them unreservedly.” - Dave from Bentley, WA on Multiple Trades and Maintenance

Cost of hiring professional electricians

Electrical services usually start at $50/hr. Your sparkie may charge higher depending on the size and complexity of the job as well the materials that are going to be used. If components need to be replaced, this will definitely increase the cost as well.
