Q: Why should I hire a professional electrician?

A: Although many people like to adopt the do-it-yourself approach for certain home repairs or renovations, a professional electrician can provide you with industry knowledge and experience for your projects. Additionally, they have the proper training and certification required to perform electrical work.

Q: When should I call an electrician?

A: There are some electrical repairs that an average homeowner can take care of with little to no risk. However, it is very important to remember that electricity, in any volume, is very dangerous.

You should call an electrician if:

  1. An unbiased third party has advised you to contact a licensed electrician.
  2. If the repairs would require obtaining expensive tools, you will save money by letting a professional (who most likely will already have the tools) perform the job.
  3. If there is any work that needs to be done behind the walls or some other boundary, it is advised to have a professional perform the work. This will help ensure that any repairs will not be yours.
  4. If you do not have the necessary protective gear to perform the job safely, it is advised to hire a professional.

Q: How do I know that someone claiming to be an electrician is actually a qualified electrician?

A: All certified electricians should have a valid, unexpired Certificate of Qualification in their possession at all times. They should also be licensed and recognized by the Electrical Safety Authority and Electrical Contractor Registration Agency, and their license number should be prominently displayed on their service vehicle.

Q: How long have you been in the residential electrical industry?

A: Copperhead Electric is a family-run business and has over 45 years of combined experience. We are equipped to handle all of your residential and commercial needs.

Q: Do you charge for on-site estimates?

A: No. All of our estimates are completely free of charge.
