“Are they any safety concerns with our current electrical setup?”
Perhaps there’s a stray wire somewhere or a pesky flickering light. If you have an inquiry related to your electrical wiring, never be afraid to ask! Consult this guide from the Electrical Safety Foundation International and ask your electrician for a second opinion if anything alarming catches your eye. Your electrician should take your concerns seriously and be able to explain any issues in terms you can understand.
“How can I keep this from happening again?”
Has the electrician come to fix a critical issue? It may be helpful to ask for preventive measures for future reference. Your electrician should be able to help you plan and quote out any future projects. They should also be able to reference recent similar projects so that you know what to expect.
