Electrical work can be very dangerous. The pros spend many years working and studying before they become licensed and certified. That knowledge and training can help them work safely and perform the job without harming themselves or your home. 

Even a small wiring repair job can be unsafe if not done correctly. Hiring someone that has specialized training on how to do each specific job is the safest choice.

What questions should I ask an electrician?

Here are a few questions you should ask any electrician you’re considering hiring:

  • Are you licensed or certified? A professional electrician should have this information ready and up to date. 
  • Do you have any references? Ask for references to learn about their work history from previous customers. You may be able to look online at reviews, but it’s also good to speak to someone to find out their experience with this electrician. 
  • What types of services do you offer? Whether you need repairs or installation services, make sure the electrician can perform the work you need.
  • How long will the job take? This will help you set expectations and rearrange your schedule (if needed).
  • Can you send me free estimates? Request a job quote or estimate. This will help with comparing different electricians. The numbers may vary, but be sure to factor in the experience of each person, as well as the scope of electrical work you’re asking about.

Do electricians offer remote or virtual services?

While electrical work is typically performed in person, you may come across some electrician profiles that state the pro is offering remote services. If you do, contact local electricians to discuss your particular project and what type of remote services they may offer.

Anthony was very responsive and troubleshoot our electrical issues. He repaired 3 out 5 outlets and provided additional information to the other 2 outlets that required further repairs due to unforseen circumstances. Anthony was easy to work with and even took time to address other electrical needs. I recommend his services and would use him in the future.

If I was able to choose all five attributes I would. I had a serious problem with my dryer outlet on a Saturday around noon. J&J were able to come within a matter of hours and do outstanding work making the repair. They were also able to repair something else I thought might be related! J&J will be my go-to for all electrical work in the future.

John was a God send to me. He came on a Saturday morning at 8:00 am, which was awesome for me. I tried to do some electrical work DYI and that did not work out so well. John repaired my mistake and did a beautiful job. Very professional. His card is now taped inside my kitchen cabinet!!! I will call him again when I need electrical work done, for sure.

Scott and his associate were extremely knowledgeable, professional and their work exceeded all of our expectations. Scott customized the job to meet our short and long term home maintenance needs and provided valuable insight and explanations as to how and why we might or might not want to repair and maintain certain of our older electrical fixtures to meet those needs going forward. Scott went beyond the call of duty and even helped provide a recommendation for a (really good) HVAC repair man, who we were able to hire expeditiously and whose work was also top notch. I highly recommend Scott and Old-Fashioned Electric and will definitely hire again.

Nick and his associate came the same day I called, and did an amazing job for a very reasonable price. They went right to work, and even made an accurate analysis of a TV issue that saved us from a useless TV repair visit. Will hire them immediately for any electrical issue in the future. Fantastic job!

J&J came out and ran my entire electrician punch list. I have new bathroom vents, lights, dimmer switches, repaired outlets, and more. They were courteous and put a full day of work in, rarely needing anything from us. I will definitely go to J&J for future electrical work.

Daniel was excellent. He arrived on time and completed the job within an hour. I had him install timers on several light switches throughout the house. He was easy to talk to and answered all of my many questions about the functionality of the units. He also made sure that the job was completed to my satisfaction and assisted me in setting up the timers and doing a “test run” to ensure that everything worked as planned. I will call Daniel in the future should I have any electrical repairs and recommend him to all of my friends.

We were so pleased we chose to work with Phillips Electrical, and all of our issues were fixed so well and in just a few hours. We had issues with flickering lights and multiple trips on our breaker, which was a big safety concern for me. DJ responded immediately and fit in an appointment with us the very next day. He diagnosed the problem, and was amazing about explaining the issues in detail, explaining the necessary repairs and provided a reasonable quote. We felt so much trust in his expertise based on how well he described the issues and suggested repairs. He also recommended (without pressure!) a surge protector for our breaker box to better protect the house long term. He followed up with a call later in the day after GA Power checked a few things (DJ’s suggestion) and followed up again the next day as well to ensure all the flickering lights were still fixed. We loved his support and professionalism. Highly recommend!

Where do I begin with Mr. Marks... First off, I had 24 hours to get this job done and this was the weekend. He reached back out to me quickly and we were able to schedule and appointment SAME DAY. Not only does he have great experience, but he truly cares about his customers and getting the job done right. He communicated very effectively— even sending me his ETAs when en route to my home. Friday, he came to assess my breaker/outlet due to my lights cutting off. Within 20 minutes, he knew what the issue had been and fixed it. He was patient and even showed me what the issue was and how he was going to repair it. After, he tested to make sure everything was fine and gave me his business card just in case I had any more electrical issues. FIRST specialist on Thumbtack to do this. That evening, I noticed the my lights had cut off again. I text Mr. Marks, to advise him of the issue again. He immediately texts me back to tell me that he could come first thing Monday. When I told him I had a very short period of time to get this job done, he modified his schedule and came the next day—Saturday. Although he had been all booked, he still went above and beyond to come out again to reassess the issue. He figured out what else had triggered the issue and fixed it. Duration: < 30 minutes. My lights never cutoff. Thank you again,Mr. Marks for your level of expertise and professionalism. Highly Recommend!
