Whether your outlets aren’t working, your circuits keep tripping, or your living room is in desperate need of a ceiling fan, the first person you call is likely to be a residential electrician. In days past, you’d probably pick up a phone book and call the first listing you saw. In this day and age, you’ll probably grab your smartphone and see what Google can dig up for you.

The truth is that it’s easier than ever to find a local electrician that is licensed and certified thanks to the internet. It also means that you can weed out the questionable choices by taking a look at their reviews. Sure, it’s important to read some of what people have to say with a grain of salt, but it certainly does help to narrow things down.

But once that’s done, what else should you look for in the company that you’re going to be working with? At Delta Electrical, we’ve been in our industry for long enough to know which crucial qualities an electrician should display. We’ll be breaking them down below, so keep reading to learn more!

Your Electrician Should Display…


First and foremost, you want the company that you choose to have a reputation for being honest. In our line of work, there are plenty of things that can go wrong if someone takes a shortcut, and that means that knowing someone is honest goes a long way. From quoting prices for the work that you need done to doing the work, if you are able to find someone that’s honest, you’re setting yourself up for long-term success.


Honesty and integrity go hand in hand. Integrity in our industry means taking the extra steps to make sure the job gets done the right way. It means staying late to ensure that you’re leaving a person’s home safer than when you entered it. It’s being upfront about costs and striving to do the best work in the industry.


Professionalism means showing up on time to get our work done. It means being polite to our customers, doing our work non-intrusively, and cleaning up after ourselves when we’re done. It also means getting the job done the right way the first time around rather than cutting corners.
