Reasons to Hire an Electrician

Whether your electrical need is for an addition, a repair, or an upgrade when a home needs electrical work is the time to put away the card for the handyman and call a licensed electrician. Here are some reasons why you need an electrician.

To save money

Saving money is always a great thing, but not advisable when it's on electrical work. By hiring a neighbor or handyman, you may be liable for the hospital bill when the guy working on your ceiling fan gets shocked, falls off the ladder, and ends up in traction.

Because a licensed electrician carries insurance to cover accidents, mishaps, and just common mistakes, you as the homeowner are not subject to the errors of your repair person. If an event occurs during or following a repair done by a handyman, you don't want to be stuck with the results of an accident.


Who knows more about your electricity than you do?

The answer is, "We do."

The reason is that a licensed electrician can't get a license unless he passes the licensing exam. Because we are licensed, we have a stake in the game, since our reputation and our livelihood is riding on excellent work faithfully performed without a problem every single time.


Who else considers this license to be significant? Your insurance company. Why is what your insurance company thinks important? Because if there is a fire, an accident, or some other mishap down the road, you can show that you have exercised due diligence and had your electrical repairs performed by a licensed electrician.


Other than a full range of electrical expertise, a licensed electrician also has an ongoing awareness of new technology in the electrical field. For the homeowner, this knowledge is meaningful because your licensed electrician can be expected to keep on top of new advances in electrical technology especially those that might make your home safer, more liveable, or more economical than ever before.

As licensed electricians, we are proud of what we bring to the table when we serve our customers, whether it's a simple repair or a full-blown electrical retrofitting. Paying a little more money guarantees the quality of the work performed, your satisfaction, and a safe product which you and your family can enjoy for years to come.

We hope you'll consider us for your next electrical job because we can save you money, offer expertise, and give you peace of mind.
