Electrician in Sidcup
OK, we know that home electrical wiring isn’t the most inspiring topic to talk about, but this doesn’t mean that the subject isn’t worth discussing. When it comes to getting those boring electrical jobs done around the home, it can be easy for you to think that the first electrician in Sidcup that turns up on a Google search will be a good choice. However, relying on internet searches isn’t the best way to choose your electrical service provider.
You also may be very tempted to look for the cheapest possible quote for your electrical work. However, skimping on your budget could actually cost you more money in the long term. Simply going for the cheapest quote in an effort to save you some money that you can spend on a pizza or a night out may sound like a good idea, but that £30 you saved may cost you a hefty repair bill when you need to call someone out to fix a dodgy electrical job.
Homeowners are really taking a dangerous risk by using an unregistered electrician in their homes. Simply going on the price of a quote for the work isn’t enough to guarantee you will get a competent job that leaves your family and home safe from electrical risks.
Check whether an electrician is registered
The first thing you should check is whether an electrician is registered and qualified. This is actually very easy to do. Electricians that are registered with a Government-approved scheme will appear on their register. If you cannot find them, then ask for proof on their registration. Should they fail to do so, walk away – fast!
Risking hiring an electrician because they are cheap can leave your at severe risk of electrical damage being done to your home, not to mention the dangers of electrocution for your family and yourself. Do you really want to put the safety of your family at risk for the sake of a few saved pounds? No, we didn’t think so. Shoddy electrical workmanship can not only burn a hole in a wall of your home, but also burn a hole in your pocket too.
When do I need the help of a qualified electrician?
To be on the safe side, we would recommend that you use a genuine registered electrician to do all electrical work within your home, including any external electrical wiring for porches, garages and sheds. When it comes to upgrading your old home wiring, installing new wiring to an extension or loft conversion, or even adding extra plug sockets to your kitchen to accommodate new kitchen gadgets and phone charging sockets, you cannot take a chance on a DIY enthusiast – this could be extremely hazardous to your health and safety when done incorrectly.
