My brain, frankly, just hurts right now. I’m not sure yet what exactly wrong with the electrical. I’m not sure what has to be done to fix it. I did find out yesterday that our electrical board is one of two brands that lost their UL certification, so that makes me oh so pleased about it. Not. Regardless of what we find out about our specific current problem, that gives me pause about keeping the board at all if we can help it. Argh.
And I have decided that hiring a home inspector when we were considering buying the house was, apparently, in our case a total waste of time and money. For I am not sure he did much of anything past come for a visit and get paid to do so. I still love my house. But it is trying my patience. I’m not sure how we could have done better with a home inspector but obviously the one we picked didn’t do much.
So this post – not very useful. I have no idea how to pick an electrical contractor. If I ever figure it out, I will be sure to tell you all. Many of them want to charge a trip charge just to come out and do an estimate. I understand why, but it doesn’t please me. But I can tell you one thing for sure. The one my spouse called yesterday that said they could do it without a permit for one price, and if we insisted on having permits then it would be a lot more, well…
We won’t be going with that one.
