  • A good reputation – Often the best way to choose your electricians is through word of mouth. Following a referral from a previous customer gives you a good idea of what to expect from a company. If not, look for (or ask for) reviews and testimonials.

  • Safety First – All electricians in Leicester and beyond should be registered with NAPIT. NAPIT is an organisation committed to householder safety in the domestic sector and ensures that all work carried out in customer homes complies with the relevant regulations. Always ask to see your electrician’s NAPIT registered card. This will list services they are qualified to carry out. All work carried out by a NAPIT registered electrician in Leicester is covered for your safety and peace of mind.

  • Specialists – Don’t leave your electrical needs up to a plumbing, HVAC, or handyman company. Their training may only include fundamental electrical knowledge. With the National Electrical Code being updated every 3 years and with ever changing technology available, it is imperative that your electrician be well trained and have the licensing necessary to provide a safe and reliable product.
