Our Electrician Service FAQs

The cost for an electrical contractor to fix existing or ongoing electrical problems in your house varies drastically based on a wide range of issues.

There are several factors at play, including:

  • The size of your home
  • Severity of the problem
  • A technician’s diagnosis, following a thorough inspection

Providing a hard estimate is difficult without knowing any of the above.

However, we do recommend that if you are concerned about electrical problems in your home, you call in a professional to take a look; it is NOT advisable to delay or leave the problem because of worries about price. Ignoring electrical problems could lead to much more dangerous issues down the road.

If your home is on aluminum electrical wiring, you should call an electrical contractor to replace it right away.

Aluminum wiring is not safe, and most insurance companies will no longer allow for coverage of homes that still use it.

If your home is on knob & tube wiring, you might want to consider upgrading to a more modern system.

Professional electricians take pride in their work.

One good example: if the breaker box in a house isn’t square, but instead appears crooked or shoddily placed on the wall, it’s likely the home’s electrical work was not done by a professional or certified contractor.

Copper wiring will last a very long time.

Aluminum, however, will last around 20 years, and should be replaced at that point.

No, not yourself; never attempt to move or remove old wiring yourself.

A certified electrical contractor should be dispatched to inspect it themselves and confirm that it is, in fact, unused. Attempting to do so yourself is not safe and could result in severe injury or even death.
