Every homeowner knows that keeping up on electrical work and maintenance is a necessity but can be pricey! The good news is that there are several ways you can keep electrical costs low.

Here are three, money-saving tips to keep in mind before starting your next electrical project.

Combine Electrical Jobs to Save Costs

You can save time and money on electrical work by bundling projects together. Keep a running list of electrical problems or needs in your home. Then when you call an electrician to do a walk-through of your home, you can take care of all your issues at once. You will find having the electrician attend to several smaller needs in one visit much more cost-effective.

Invest in Cost-Efficient Electrical Upgrades

A good way to combat rising electricity costs is to switch from incandescent bulbs to fluorescent CFL bulbs or even LED bulbs. They provide the same lighting but use less electricity. Another consideration is putting motion detector switches on any outdoor lighting. You’ll save money while enhancing your home’s security. Attractive landscape lighting is another investment that you can enjoy now and also benefit from when you sell your home.

Ask About Flat Rate Electrical Pricing

In selecting a contractor, it is not a good idea to pick one based on the hourly rate alone. Ask questions. Contractors with low hourly rates may add on separate fees or take longer to get the job done to offset the lower rate. Ideally, it’s best to protect yourself by requesting a firm quote for work you want done upfront.

"My families a/c went out randomly today. I went around the house troubleshooting what I could. It got to the point where we had to call someone. We called the first places that showed up on google. Most places either wanted tons of money just for diagnostics, or couldn’t come out today. We called Tiger they went over the cost and they got someone out to our house in 45 minutes. Josh Moravec was our tech and was super professional, kind and intelligent. He was here for about 15 minutes before he figured out our issue. He went over in depth the cost and verified everything was good before getting started to resolve it. There was no pressure to buy the service if we didn’t want to. He went back down and in 15 minutes the a/c was running strong! He asked if we had any questions and then was on his way! He was great with our kids, very polite and courteous of me and my wife. He answered all our questions, and the price was more than reasonable. We definitely recommend Tiger, and make sure you ask for Josh Moravec if you can!"
