A Helpful Guide for Electrical Safety

Ever Hired an Electrician and Thought…I Could Have Done that Myself’?

Need to fix something electrical around the house or looking to install something new?

…But you don’t want to wait around all day for an electrician to show up, only to find that it was a 5 minute fix you could safely do yourself?

And even worse, when they finish you know they’re going to hand you a bill so large it makes your eyes water.

If you’ve ever answered ‘yes’ to these questions, then The Virtual Electrician (TVE) is for you….

  Do you have an electrical job you need to do, like addressing faulty outlets and switches or sensitive circuit breakers (or any other common electrical issue)?
  Have you ever had an issue that needs fixing but didn’t want to pay an electrician hundreds of dollars for a 5 minute job?
  Do you hate taking a whole day off work to end up just waiting around for an electrician to arrive?
  Do you know you can get the job done yourself, if you just had a few pointers to get you started? (HINT: you absolutely can)

About The Virtual Electrician…

We’re a team of highly-qualified electricians who have held master certifications (the highest qualification an electrician can earn) in three states and spent almost 30 years owning and running a ‘traditional’ electrical contracting firm.

We’re proud to have provided excellent service to thousands of homeowners in our local area by diagnosing and repairing issues like faulty circuit breakers, old wiring and electrical surges, but we always wondered if there was a way we could have a bigger impact. A way we could help people all over the country not just in our local area…

…and now we’ve done it using a method that seemed almost unthinkable to us when we were first setting out on our careers… we’ve gone VIRTUAL!

Now with the help of our revolutionary streaming technology and your phone’s video function, we can guide you step-by-step to fix the problem yourself. It’s like we’re really there with you, telling you exactly what to do next from just over your shoulder.
