Hire the right electrician
It isn’t uncommon for people to ignore minor issues that appear in their homes. When it comes to electrical problems, however, it pays to be quick and proactive. Exposed wiring or faulty electrical heating can end up making a property unlivable, and even unsafe appliances can incur significant fines for landlords. Property owners are also encouraged to book regular electrical safety checks, with the typical rate being once every five years for tenanted properties and once every ten for owner-occupied homes.
Most electricians will have completed either apprenticeships or college-level courses to learn their trade. Those who work on electrical heating systems will have obtained at least a level 3 qualification. Home Solutions takes things a step further, requiring all partner electricians to also be certified by the National Inspection Council for Electrical Installation Contracting (NICEIC).
Typically, the cost of an electrical service will depend less on averages and more on the little details involved. As useful as average prices can be, they can only tell you so much. For example, an electrician may need to bring in additional parts, or they may need to pay for parking if a client cannot provide enough vehicle space. Some electricians will also charge higher rates for work that takes place during weekends, evenings or national holidays. What matters most is getting an electrician who will confirm all costs with you well in advance, while also offering a market-leading price. This is always guaranteed when you choose Home Solutions.
Prices on the Home Solutions website are based on either fixed costs or bespoke quotes. Small and simple electrical services have standardised prices which are listed on the John Lewis website. Larger projects, on the other hand, will require you to contact an electrician in order to discuss the details. Once they have the information they need, they can then write up a bespoke quote for the job. Remember, depending on what kind of work is required, your electrician may well ask to visit your property in advance for an inspection.
