How do I choose an electrician ?
Personal recommendation is always a good starting point and approach at least two companies for detailed estimates before making the final choice.
Make sure that they are members of at least one of the following professional trade bodies.
National Inspection Council for Electrical Installation Contracting [NICEIC] www.niceic.org.uk
Electrical Contractors Association [ECA] www.eca.co.uk
Both of these bodies insist that members carry out work in accordance with the Institute of Electrical Engineers [ IEE ] Wiring Regulations and will investigate complaints about members work. Lists of members can be found on their respective websites.
