About Us

Chicago’s Reliable Electrical Contractors

The technicians at Arnold Electric Services, Inc. are not your typical electrical contractors. Chicago and NEC code is the minimum our Chicago electricians will deliver. As a local family-owned and operated Chicago company, we strive for a positive client experience because our clients are our neighbors, family and friends. Starting with your first consultation with a licensed technician all the way through the finished job, each client and project is performed with the highest level of care, safety and efficiency. We treat our clients like we would our own family and our reputation reflects that.

  • We focus on safety, efficiency and quality.
  • Service agreements are individualized for each client.
  • We purchase only the highest quality materials from trusted suppliers.

The Arnold Electric “Why”

Service is in my blood. It’s what electrifies my nervous system. My parents instilled the value of selfless service in me, right from the start. I got good, honest lessons in life from all angles growing up, through school and especially through Boy Scouts. I even became an Eagle Scout.

I naturally want to help people. The value of helping others without the expectation for anything in return is very important to me. Arnold Electric’s foundation is rooted in helping others. Our culture of doing a good turn each day shows in the way we treat our clients and their properties.

Just like my dad, I became an electrician. After completing the five-year apprenticeship program and obtaining three different electrical licenses as a journeyman, I founded my own business with the family name—Arnold Electric.

Electricity is the nervous system of any building. We take the safety, security, and efficiency of your homes and businesses very seriously. You won’t find another company that shows more attention to detail that we do.

To top it off we are some of the nicest, funny, normal, down-to-earth people you’ll ever want to meet. We are looking forward to serving you too.

—Jack Arnold

Arnold Electric Gives Back to the Community – It’s In Our DNA

You’ll see our staff throughout the City volunteering at community fundraising events, often spending time with our neighbors at the senior center with our local Cub Scout pack in tow.

Arnold Electric donated a new BMX bike to Taft High School in support of Principle Gersman’s initiative to get all students to show up on time. It was raffled off to kids with perfect attendance after the first semester. It was a lot of fun to be involved with!

It makes us feel good to give back. It’s the same feeling and attitude we bring to working with our clients, as well.

What Our Clients Say

Fantastic Service

I have used Arnold Electric a few times for my business. I wasn’t sure what my options were for lighting in my office. Jack was so nice to bring some samples for me to try before installing! They are wonderful!

Dr. Lauren Shultz

Reliable and Professional

The team over at Arnold Electric has been great to work with. We recently purchased a home and have had Pedro out to do a review of the electrical system, make some minor repairs and present some options to improve the out dated and DIY wiring in our home. The team has done a great job of communicating expectations and explaining everything for us.

Kirk Heavner

Excellent Work

Very easy to work with, excellent work on jobs big (new underground line to a detached garage) and small (changing the interior fixture.

Lauren Harms

Punctual, Courteous and Clean

This company is absolutely the most professional and conscientious electrical contractor I’ve ever had the pleasure of hiring. I’ve used them several times from things like replacing my electrical panel, to wiring issues, to installing a ceiling fan. I will also use them for anything else electrical going forward. They’re always punctual, courteous and clean. I’m very particular, and hard to please. I’m not afraid to call and complain about less than perfect service from anyone I hire. Arnold Electrical Service, thank you for all the jobs well done!

Debbie Neer

Fair Pricing and Excellent Work

Jack’s team came in and did a complete home inspection and repaired a light above my wife’s sink. My marriage has been saved now that the light is fixed. Very fair pricing and excellent work!

Douglas Sheehan

Reasonable Price & Professional

Joe came to my house to fix a dumb thing I did. (DON’T DO YOUR OWN ELECTRICAL WORK!) He was friendly, fast and very helpful, answering all my questions in a polite and tolerant manner.
The charges were very reasonable for the professional quality service I received. They will be coming back to do some new wiring and circuits soon. Highly Recommend!
