Electrical Services FAQ | Sacramento Electrician Answers

Can’t I just call a handyman to fix minor electrical problems? You seem busy with bigger issues.

You can use a handyman for just about any electrical job that you feel they can handle. Perhaps they don't have the time or the right tools, for example replacing a switch or dimmer. Unfortunately, handymen don’t have specialty training in electrical work. Although most have basic electrical skills, that may not be enough to ensure safety and accuracy, which may increase the risk of electrocution or an electrical fire. It is best to get a professional and skilled electrician to ensure the job will be done right the first time.

How do you handle emergency electrical issues?

We prioritize safety and customer satisfaction above all. Our professional and skilled electricians are always available to respond to electrical emergencies promptly, day or night. Like with any electrical work we do, we begin by assessing the extent of the problem, and then breakdown exactly how we will fix it, how long it will take, and the cost. We are transparent and upfront about our pricing so there are no surprises. If you have any questions or concerns, we will be happy to address them.

What are some signs that I need electrical repair work?

Generally, regular inspections, troubleshooting, and routine maintenance can help to reduce the need for major electrical work. However, unexpected problems can arise, in which case you can contact Griffin Electric for emergency repair work. Some reasons to contact us include:

  • Constant flickering lights
  • Poor lighting quality
  • High energy costs
  • Installation, repair, or maintenance of equipment or appliances
  • Power surges and regular tripping of circuit breakers
  • Major home/property remodeling

Do I need to be present when your team is working?

We know that you are busy. So once we assess the problem together, you will not need to be present as we do our work. We will take care of your valuable items and property while we work to ensure that everything is in order after we are finished.

What electrical services do you provide?

All electrical equipment and appliances need adjusting, maintenance, or replacing at some point. Our skilled electricians can assist with any residential, retail, or commercial electrical job, from wiring and equipment installation lighting retrofits and service upgrades to repair and routine maintenance to ensure optimal performance and reduce the risk of sudden shutdown or electrical accidents caused by standard wear and tear.
