Questions for a Residential Electrician Electrician FAQ

While it's easy to write off the occasional electrical mishap, like an outlet that sparks or a breaker that trips every so often, residential electrical problems can range from concerning to hazardous. If you've never had electrical work done before, you may have a few questions about residential electrical services. Browse our electrician FAQ section below to answer some common questions before contacting an electrician. If you have any lingering concerns, don't hesitate to contact the professional electricians at Custom Electrical Services !

Frequent breaker trips are usually a sign that the circuit is overloaded. This may be because you are using too many appliances at once, or you may have a malfunctioning socket, which can be a fire hazard. An experienced electrician can inspect the circuitry to determine the underlying cause and make any necessary repairs to stop breaker trips.

A small flash of electricity when you plug in an appliance is not always a cause of concern. If there is a spark every time you use an outlet, you may be dealing with a short–circuiting outlet. If left untreated, short circuits can lead to fires as they break down insulation and wires. Contacting a professional is the safest way to diagnose the problem and find a solution.

If you're reading this electrician FAQ, one of your biggest questions may be whether your electrical project even needs an electrician. Custom Electrical Services advises homeowners to call a licensed local electrician when doing any extensive electrical work, such as electrical installation or home rewiring. A licensed electrician is trained and experienced in more complicated electrical projects, guaranteeing a thorough professional result.

Your home and your home's safety should always be the number one priority in any electrical project. While some minor residential electric projects can be managed on your own, any form of electrical work is dangerous. Even minor issues may indicate a serious problem in your home's electrical system. Contacting a licensed, professional electrician like those at Custom Electrical Services is the safest way to ensure a job is well done.

Any electrician who works on your house should be licensed in your state. Depending on the complexity of the project, an unlicensed electrician may not be qualified to meet code or state inspection requirements. You can verify an electrician's license by checking with your local licensing department.

All the electrical technicians at Custom Electrical Services are fully licensed and insured electrical technicians skilled in residential electric work, such as installing electrical, updating home wiring, and troubleshooting.

Most electrical contractors offer a warranty to guarantee their labor and the quality of work done on the job they perform in your home.

At Custom Electrical Services , we care more about your total satisfaction than anything else. Contact us today to discuss our warranty and schedule a free estimate for your residential electric project!

Periodic safety inspections are essential to ensure the safety and functionality of your home's electrical system. Suppose something in your electrical system is malfunctioning. In that case, a basic electrical safety inspection may be included by your electrician as part of the repair job. If one is not performed, feel free to ask!

Though the cost of electrical services will depend entirely upon the project, your electrician can give you an idea of the cost after they have diagnosed the problem in person.

At Custom Electrical Services , we provide our customers with a detailed quote before work begins. To discuss the estimated cost of your project, schedule a free estimate today!

Had these guys and gals help me update my electrical as well as run some power out to a shop. The whole process was super smooth, Kourtnie nailed the paperwork side of things (even got a permit and inspection that I had no idea we needed) and Cory was great to work with on the installation side of things. The price was the same from the original bid all the way to the final product, which is always nice. The work itself was exactly what we agreed upon. Really nothing but good things to say about my whole experience. Would totally recommend these guys to any of my friends!

We are so appreciative of the work that Morgan and his team did on behalf of Custom Electrical for our new home. Custom Electrical provided a thorough, exact, and honest/fair bid right from the start, and they stuck to it! We had a budget, and they respected it. They were always timely and very professional. Attention was paid to every detail, and they made sure things were just how we wanted them. They went above and beyond in so many ways, from being patient with our kids running around to coming back an extra time to make sure everything was just right. We will be recommending them to everyone we know. Thanks you guys!

5 stars and a forever customer! My family moved into an older home and we've had Custom Electric over several times to help get our home working a bit more how I would like it. I appreciate that I am always able to get someone to my home quickly- whether it's to install a light switch or rewire an entire room. Everyone who's been in my home has been professional, friendly, and consistent in their quality work. Maybe most of all, I am grateful for the honest communication and great customer service! After the last visit, I had some concerns that were cleared up right away with kindness and respect (especially for dealing with a not so electrical savvy me). I would send everyone I know and love who have electrical need to Custom Electric- they won't let you down!!

We had a baseboard heater stop working in our baby's room. Custom Electric came out and quickly repaired the problem. Scheduling was easy, the technicians and staff were all very professional and great to work with. When we need electrical work done in the future, we will definitely be working with them again.

These guys/gals are always very helpful. I got a tech out to the house same day I called to repair a GFI receptacle that kept tripping open. Cory (technician) troubleshoot the problem, corrected it and was gone in about 30 minutes. I have used them for other projects with no complaints. I use them without hesitation for any electrical issues.
