At some point, you will need the services of an electrical contractor. My need for an electrician was due to a lightning strike on my house. Most of the electricians in the area would come out in two to three days. When I explained the situation to Mr. Beach, that the house wiring was comprimised, he arrived within an hour. He checked out not only the house wiring, but all the appliances. I would not use another alectrician.
