Choosing an electrician for your home or business need can be a daunting task, but armed with some basic knowledge about how to differentiate one from another you can get plugged in to the right contractor choice.
NECA, a national organization with a chapter locally in the Mahoning Valley, is the voice of the electrical construction industry. Its contractors set industry standards for traditional and integrated electrical systems and lead the industry in the practical application of new technologies.
Electrical systems are growing more complex, and repairing older systems can be riddled with safety concerns and electrical code issues. The best option might be to enlist the help of a qualified electrical contractor, and since most are specialists to one degree or another, according to NECAnet.com, it helps to identify your particular needs before you start reaching out to local contractors.
What kind of work do you need?
Electrical contractors are classified by the work they do – generally, “outside” or “line” contractors are responsible for high-voltage power transmission and distribution lines; “Inside” electrical contractors provide electricity to buildings and structures; and “Integrated building systems” (IBS) or “Voice/Data/Video” (VDV) electrical contractors.
Are they qualified?
Once you have defined your specific need, your goals are to ask the right questions to ensure your contractor is technically proficient, reputable and financially stable, and has a thorough understand of your business or project.
Are they NECA contractors?
NECA contractors are your best option because they are committed to the latest technologies, training techniques, billing methods and safety updates. Further, they are experts at energy solutions.
