A couple of ceiling lights didn't work. It's an old house, so thinking that it was a problem with the circuit, I called Hotwire via HomeStars. Their crew of two showed up on time, were very pleasant, and explained how they were going to troubleshoot the problem.
It turned out the problem was just a couple of faulty switches that coincidentally failed at the same time. It's certainly something I could have changed myself, but I have no regrets calling in the pros. I was not looking forward to troubleshooting old ungrounded house wiring attached to an unlabeled breaker panel.
They were up front about the pricing structure, which I appreciated and found to be fair. They're a small business, and I'm happy to pay them sustainable rates, especially in these times.
