|Money Saving Tips
Bundle Jobs Together
To save money and time on electrical work, bundle projects together. Anytime you discover an electrical problem, put it on a list. When you feel it's time to call an electrician, review your list and then conduct a mini-inspection of your home. Look for faulty switches and dysfunctional or crowded outlets. When the electrician comes, you'll save money and time by getting everything taken care of at once.
The less time the electrician spends dealing with inconveniences, the more you will save. Before the professional arrives, prepare a precise list of items you want serviced. Also, make sure the electrical panel box is accessible and clear away fragile items and knickknacks from areas where you expect the electrician to work.
Capture Offsetting Financial Pluses
By switching from ordinary incandescent fixtures or bulbs to fluorescent ones, you can substantially reduce energy consumption in your home. Also, motion detector switches can help you save money on outdoor lighting while at the same time providing very cost-effective security to your home. Finally, creative landscape lighting and indoor accent lighting can make your home more appealing to you, your guests and potential buyers in the future.
Check For Up Front Pricing
Don't let low hourly rates make your decision on which contractor to hire. Their may be fees added on to offset the low rates and with an hourly job the longer they take the more money they make. Ask for Up Front pricing so you will know exactly what a job will cost you before they start.
