You know how to do more than change a light bulb and are able to make some electrical repairs or upgrades yourself. Other repairs require using a licensed electrician. Consider a faulty switch, or non-functioning outlet, for example. It's not a difficult job to buy a new one from a hardware store and replace the old, but do you know what caused the failure in the first place? It may have been a one time power surge, but it may be a short in the wiring leading to the failure. A professional electrician can determine the cause and assure the safety of your family rather than fixing the symptom and hoping for the best.
