Are you on the lookout for a qualified, experienced and reliable electrician in Cardiff? Looking after the electrical wiring and appliances in your home is essential, but trying DIY work without the right tools and training can end up causing expensive damage, not to mention serious injury.

Finding the right tradesperson can be tough, especially if you have a particularly busy schedule. With Home Solutions, you can not only book your service quickly, but you are also guaranteed to be working with an expert. Each of our electricians has passed a strict five-stage vetting process, which includes an examination of their qualifications, experience, past work and customer reviews. To make sure you are completely satisfied, you will also be provided with a 12-month guarantee for your services.
Wherever you are in Cardiff, Home Solutions has you covered. Our electricians are available in outer boroughs such as Rumney, Gibbons Down, Barry, Lavernock, Newport, Caerphilly, Pontypridd and Wenvoe, as well as central areas like Saltmead, Eastbrook, Cogan, Cardiff Docks, Adamsdown, Roath, Cathays, Victoria Park, Fairwater, Pentrebane and Danescourt.
When it comes to the electricity in your home, it is important never to take chances. This certainly applies to installation or repair work, which can go disastrously wrong if attempted without the right tools and training. It also applies to ongoing maintenance. Homeowners are advised to book electrical safety checks every five years for tenanted properties, and once every ten years for owner-occupied homes. Remember, issues like exposed wiring are not only dangerous, but they can also make a property illegal to let.
To learn their trades, electricians will usually complete college-level courses or apprenticeships, though some may train directly with an employer. Not only has each and every Home Solutions electrician had their qualifications vetted, but we also check that they are certified by the National Inspection Council for Electrical Installation Contracting (NICEIC).
While giving yourself a good idea of the average cost of hiring an electrician can be useful, you should remember to take any figures you find with a pinch of salt. The main reason for this is that prices in Cardiff can vary significantly from national averages. Another reason is that the little details of an electrical job can have a big impact on the final quote. An electrician may need to bring in additional parts, charge for parking and so on. Candidates may also have higher rates for work that takes place during evenings, weekends or national holidays. With Home Solutions, not only can you be sure of getting an excellent price, but you will also be informed about all costs well in advance.
When you book an electrician via Home Solutions, you will have two options for payment. The first will be to book a service with a standardised cost. Most of these services are small and fairly simple. You will be able to view a list of them on the John Lewis website. Option two, which is better suited to large-scale projects, will be to contact an electrician directly via Home Solutions in order to discuss the details of the work you have in mind. Once your candidate knows what your job will require in terms of parts, time and so on, they will then be able to provide you with a bespoke quote. Your electrician may well as to visit your property in advance for an inspection before giving you a price.
