How to Choose the Right Toronto Electrician

All too often Toronto electricians are seen as a dime-a-dozen as trades people or contractors in the home renovation industry.

As the number of electricians continues to grow, homeowners need to be aware of how to choose a qualified and certified service pro who won’t short circuit them in a quick-fix or unexpectedly zap them with unnecessary costs in a home renovation.

EiEiHome spoke to Hotwire Electric for some tips and ideas for homeowners looking for help with wiring, installation and professional advice. A qualified Toronto electrician should be able to provide support and service through every detail of your project.

“A qualified and expert electrician is sure to go above and beyond standard electrical code by providing exceptional customer service.” says Hanna Taylor. Hotwire Electric sets themselves apart with their simple moto, “Clients come first!”

“A well rounded Toronto electrician has a skill set not limiting their expertise to just pot-lights or pools.” she added. Service pros at Hotwire offer a broad range of specialties, with well-trained and qualified staff, who can deliver diversified services. A qualified electrician should be able to install wiring and lighting to pools, panels, pot-lights and solar — whether to a customized home or commercial property.

Hotwire Electric has been in business for over a decade. Their team provides services to homeowners and business owners whose needs vary from basic and combined lighting installations, to designing a multi-purpose dream home.

Toronto electricians must be registered with the Electrical Safety Authority (ESA) in the Authorized Contractor Program (ACP). Hotwire Electric is a member with elite standing, that is granted by the governing body to electrical contractors with a very low defect ratio. This special ACP status sets Hotwire Electric and others apart, allowing for faster inspections and smoother process due to consistent compliance to the ESA electrical code.

When searching for the right Toronto electrician, ask about their member status with the ESA. Know what to expect and ask questions that will help you understand the scope of work to be completed and always get a quote prior to the start of any job.
