How To Choose A Reliable Electrician


I was very happy with the electrician, Jack D. He was very helpful on the phone and showed up as very professional. He took time to read my note as I could not speak. He also took a lot of effort by writing back with the answers I asked him. He also found what went wrong and fixed my issue. He did clean up afterwards. I would recommend this guy to anyone who need some electrical work.” – Stephanie S. Five Stars, Google Reviews

We received this review just a few months ago. We wanted our prospective customers to understand that we go the extra mile here at Electric Masters. Not only do we put our considerable experience and industry knowledge to work from you (something not uncommon in our field), but we do our best to go above and beyond what our customers expect. This has to do with attention-to-detail, punctuality, cleanliness, and being communicative about the customer’s options. At the end of the day, we want to empower you with the information you need to make the right decision regarding electrical services in Cincinnati.

Stephanie, thanks for taking the time to let others who were once in your same shoes — looking for a certified electrician in Cincinnati — know about what kind of experience and results they can expect from Electric Masters. We appreciate it!


We’ve done enough talking about our own qualities (for now), for we have a promised blog topic to get to! As the title of today’s blog already conveyed, we’ll be discussing how to choose an electrician in Cincinnati! Well, we should add a caveat to that, before we get started. We’ll provide some practical tips about choosing the right electrician in Cincinnati and beyond. We’ve got Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky pretty much covered already.

No matter what part of the country you hail from, it’s important that you find an electrician who showcases the following qualities:

Protect Yourself And Your Home With A Certified Electrician

While it might sound strange at first, many of us forget just how dangerous working with electricity can be. That’s why you should never try to fix an electrical issue on your own — there’s plenty that can go wrong and the stakes are high! But just the same, you shouldn’t ever trust an electrician who isn’t certified. While not every local electrician is going to be able to boast the same amount of experience that we have (20+ years), it’s a good idea to make sure the electrician you are considering is licensed and certified.

Has A Solid Reputation At The BBB

We spoke about online reviews a bit earlier, but there is no better objective authority out there than the Better Business Bureau. And while every company is going to have a mistake from time to time, (some customers are looking for things to complain about and simply want to pick a fight), the BBB will reveal exactly what kind of contractor you are dealing with. For the record, as of 1/30/2019, Electric Masters has a BBB rating of A+.

Punctual & Prompt

Arriving on time and prepared is one thing, but being prompt when your house has lost power? That’s something else altogether! Quality electricians understand they need to provide expedited, efficient services if they are going to make it in this industry. When our customers need us most, that’s when we’ll be there. Well, we can’t speak for every electrician out there. But we can speak for ourselves when we offer emergency electrician services — just call (513) 268-6384! What’s more, we offer services calls for just $59! Call us 24/7, and we’ll do our best to be at your door as soon as we can!

Honest & Communicative

This might be the most important point we can emphasize. While most people know to look online for a few reviews before committing to a contractor, not everyone will pay specific attention to how the company interacts with you on the phone. That said, it’s a flag with a pretty glaring shade of red when the electrician you’ve contracted is defensive or doesn’t have time for your questions. If they are combative, that’s even worth. What’s more, the electrician you have in mind should be open and upfront about pricing. It’s a tell-tale sign of a bad electrician if they aren’t interested in speaking with you about your problem just because you might not be able to pay for the electrical service required at that time. Make sure you protect yourself by paying attention to how you are treated throughout the process.

Unfortunately, most folks don’t realize they’ve hired a jerk until it’s too late! Do yourself a favor and look for the clues, early and often.
