How can you tell you may need electrical services in Cincinnati? Electrical work is, for the most part, not a do-it-yourself project. That’s why most building codes require a professional electrician for most electrical repairs and upgrades except the very simplest and minor. Electricity can be hazardous to work with and also present dangers later on, such as fire, if the job’s not done by a qualified pro. Your house may be letting you know that you need electrical services in Cincinnati if you see these kinds of warning signs:
Circuit Breaker Trips
A tripped circuit breaker is telling you something. It may be as simple as too many devices connected to a particular circuit, or something more urgent like deteriorated wiring that’s short-circuiting or an aging power panel that can’t handle household demand anymore. Whatever the case, the message should not be ignored. If you have to reset a circuit breaker more than once or if several trip at the same time, consult a qualified electrician now.
Flickering Or Dimming Lights
When some heavy-duty household appliance that draws a large amount of current switches on, lights connected to that same circuit may dim or flicker. This is a sign of overloading on the circuit and should not be accepted as “normal.” Any device that draws large amperage should have its own independent circuit and not share with other parts of the house. Another possible cause of overloading is that the appliance itself is defective and needs to be repaired or replaced. A professional electrician can add additional circuits to handle high-demand devices as well as identify any that are defective.
All parts of a household electrical system should be room temperature. If you notice that switch plates or wall outlets feel noticeably warm to the touch, that’s a red flag to call an electrician. Similarly, if any parts of your electrical system — or any devices connected to it — give you a shock when touched, no matter how minor, you need professional electrical services now.

"Ernie & Mike did a superb job on my new furnace and A/C installation. Despite having more than a day’s work to do, they came in and stayed until the job was done. They were organized, efficient, and protected the rest of the house well. Got both furnace and A/C installed the same day. Ernie was courteous, informative, and clearly knew his job better than anyone I’ve encountered before. The units look so good guests now get The Tour of our new system. Apollo is clearly not a fly-by-night company. I would recommend them to anyone in need of a new furnace and/or A/C."

"I called Apollo because of a water leak I thought I had in our upstairs shower going into the kitchen. Robbie came and assured me everything was fine & looked at all the other plumbing. He ended up changing a few pipes for our washer & clearing a drain. He was very nice & knowledgeable with all my questions. I ended up signing up for the care plan & was very happy with my service."

"The team at Apollo exceeded my expectations. As a business owner, my attention to the details and commitment to providing excellent service is high. From the sales rep. to the installation team, everyone’s performance was outstanding. For example, the installation team went to great lengths to protect our floors, placing floor runners and across the wood floors and up the stairs. They even were spot washing walls upon their departure. I highly recommend this company."

"We scheduled an estimate AND a tune-up. We knew something was wrong with our furnace, but hoped we could make it through the rest of the season. Upon telling Bill what our furnace was doing, he warned us immediately what the possible outcome was going to be; a cracked heat exchanger. He watched the flames roll backward, tested carbon monoxide levels, which were so high they meter’s last reading was 5,600 before saying “high”. He immediately shut it down, tagged it, and explained that with levels that high and children in our home he wanted off right away. He continued his inspection and showed us via a camera that not only was it cracked in multiple places, but had holes all over it. He gave us a few options for repairing it; his knowledge as well as genuine concern was beneficial and refreshing. Luckily we also scheduled an estimator, Micah, to come too and we were able to get costs between repairing and replacing (with several options). We decided to replace with a much higher efficiency furnace and one sized properly to our home. Hands down, not only did they both provide us great service and knowledge, but without sounding dramatic, they may have saved our lives. This was our first time calling Apollo, but it won’t be our last."

"Apollo is an excellent company. I always receive great service. Alex A. was professional and friendly. He kept me informed during the process of checking my furnace and heat pump to make sure they were working properly. The company makes sure you are notified who is coming and when they are on the way. All my interactions with the company have been wonderful."
