Safety is a major priority in the industrial industry. Electricity is not only a factor when it comes to safety, but also your productivity and bottom dollar. This is why having a reliable, experienced industrial electrical company on your side is so important. Here are some tips to help you find the right electrical contractor for your needs.

What to look for in electricians

There are some things you should look for (and watch out for) when researching electrical companies.

  1. They must be able to plan a maintenance schedule.
  2. They must understand industrial electrical systems and be able to work on a variety of common and rare issues.
  3. The company and electrician you work with should understand and know all regulations related to their field.
  4. Don’t hire inexperienced electricians.
  5. Don’t hire an electrician that isn’t willing to work with you on creating a custom contract based on your needs.

Questions to ask electrical maintenance companies

To make sure you get the most information from potential electricians that you need, be sure to write some questions and answers down for each one. This will help you make your decision. You can use these questions as a foundation to make your own list.

Do you offer any warranties or guarantees?

One of the first things you should ask each electrical company you speak with is if they offer any sort of warranties or guarantees. Even experienced electricians cannot promise that nothing will go wrong. Sometimes parts are faulty or warranties on older pieces of your system will run out. You will have a better idea of what your industrial electrician can provide by asking them this question.

What are your qualifications?

Electricians must be licensed to work on your system. You should be familiar with what it takes for these professionals to work on systems in your state. Be sure to ask each company you speak with about their licensing and make sure they understand all regulations in your area.

What is your experience?

Industrial electrical systems are complicated. The professionals that install, maintain, and repair them must have extensive experience and knowledge in their field. For example, they need to know how to install new lighting throughout your property, diagnose power output issues, and know what to do in an electrical emergency. Ask about the experience of each electrician that could be working on your system.

Ask about quotes and payments

It may seem like a no brainer to ask about what a company charges, but there is more to price than a basic fee. You need to know their diagnostics fee, how much they charge after hours or in emergencies, and what a long-term maintenance contract will cost you. Professional companies should be able to provide you with this information, at least after inspecting your system.
