An electrician can ensure quality electrical installations and repairs, eliminating the risk you take on by doing electrical work yourself.

Amateur electrical work can lead to many hazards in your home, such as panel overloads, misplaced hot wires, and fire hazards.

Because it’s so important to have a licensed professional do your electrical work, we prepared a list of questions you should ask when searching for an electrician to hire.

Are You Licensed & Insured?

Hiring an insured contractor means that you and the company have an extra degree of protection should any property damage or personal injury occur while they are in your home.

Your electrician needs to be licensed to do the work at hand, and license requirements vary by state.

HELP electricians are fully insured and licensed in Ohio and Kentucky.

What Is Your Availability?

Contractors don’t always have predictable schedules or hours resembling the typical 9 to 5.

Ask about service hours and availability to determine if they can provide the service you need in a timely manner that works with your schedule.

At HELP Electric, we know that electrical issues require urgent attention. We’re available from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. seven days a week and complete 99.6% of services on the same day they are requested.

We are committed to always being on time and never late, so you don’t have to wait for your electrician to arrive.

What Electrical Services Do You Offer?

Asking this question when you first call to schedule your appointment will determine if the electrician can provide the service you need.

Most residential electricians offer circuit breaker services, electrical repairs, and home rewiring, but HELP Electric offers services many companies don’t provide, such as:

What Training and Experience Do You Have?

Electricians perform a highly specialized trade. They need to complete initial training and licensing along with continuing education to stay up to date on the latest building codes, tools, technology, and safety protocols for the job.

When hiring an electrician, ask about their experience and any ongoing training and certifications they pursue.

All HELP technicians are Trust Certified™ and complete more than 200 hours of training each year to keep up to date on new technologies, which makes us the best of the best in the Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky area.

Do You Offer Any Guarantees or Warranties?

Insurance helps protect against damage that occurs while the work is being done, but a warranty or guarantee protects you and your home after the work is completed. Different companies have different guarantees, so it’s always important to inquire about them.

At HELP Plumbing, Heating, Cooling, Electric, and Drains, our guarantees ensure our customers are well taken care of with our Property Protection Guarantee and 100% Satisfaction Guarantee.
