    Finding electrical contractors in Cincinnati


    Cincinnati residents with homes of all ages and types call electricians. Common residential electrical jobs in Cincinnati deal with:

    • Power supplies and panels
    • Lighting, indoor and outdoor
    • Switches and outlets
    • Smoke detector and carbon monoxide detector installations
    • Home network or telephone wiring
    • Backup generators
    • Surge protection
    • Electrical appliances
    • Spa and saunas
    • Emergency services

    Homeowners in older neighborhoods like Columbia-Tusculum and Clifton contact electricians for safety inspections and wiring upgrades. Those living in newer developments in southwestern Ohio or northern Kentucky reach out to electricians for help setting up custom-built homes.

    Qualifications are just as important as price when considering an electrician in Cincinnati. Electrical contractors need licenses in both Ohio and Kentucky. Ask for copies of these licenses and proof of insurance.
