Lakeline Electric & Construction Services
Lakeline Electrical has completed several jobs for our family. The owner, Robbie, is extremely courteous and professional. He always provides us with a quote prior to doing a job and shows up ON TIME, as scheduled. He works until the job is completed and charges us only what we were quoted. He stays to make sure his crew has cleaned the entire area before leaving our home. I would highly recommend Lakeline Electrical & Construction Services. They do an outstanding job every time!

A-One Electric
Karen is very reasonable, and trustworthy. She is my go to electrician. I have used her on many occasions, for small jobs and a kitchen remodel. I have also referred her to all my friends. Everyone who has contacted her for electrical services has expressed how happy they were with her work and her pricing is very reasonable. She is very detailed in her work and an excellent trouble-shooter.

Fox Service Company
My entire experience with Fox Service was very, very positive. They replaced my heat pump, ductwork, and insulation; through a subcontractor, they also put solar screens on all of my windows. All of this was done in 2.5 days. Every person working on the job was an extremely hard worker. I was very impressed with their work ethic and desire to do the job right. Well done!

Tips & Advices
Keep the following tips in mind:
  • Do not operate any electrical equipment while sitting or standing in water.
  • Don't overload extension cords or surge protectors.
  • Put caps on your electrical outlets if you have small children.
  • Call an electrician if you notice your sockets or switches are warm to the touch, discolored or if they make noise.
  • Keep electrical cords away from stoves, ovens and other sources of heat.
  • Do not use an appliance that has a frayed cord.
  • Do not staple extension cords into place or cover them with carpets or furniture.
  • When using extension cords, make sure to unwrap them before plugging them in.
  • Don't overuse extension cords. Have an electrician install extra outlets if you need a power source closer to you.
  • Only use light bulbs with the correct wattage for your lamps and light fixtures.
  • Contact a licensed electrician if you frequently blow fuses, since this can be a sign of an electrical wiring problem.
  • Have an electrician look at your fuse box to ensure you have the right size fuses and circuit breakers. The wrong size fuse or breaker can be a fire hazard.
  • If you have fault circuit interrupters installed in your electrical panel, make sure you test them at least once a month by turning them on and off.
It can cost from $40-$100 an hour depending on the job. This does not include additional costs for parts or trip fees. Make sure to ask in advance what they charge for or if they will provide a free quote.
In order to become a full-fledged professional, a person must undergo an apprenticeship with master and journeyman electricians. An apprentice needs 8,000 hours of practical work before graduating to the journeyman level. If an apprentice reaches journeyman status, he or she can complete most electrical work, but cannot design it until completing more testing along with 2,000 more on-the-job hours.
Yes. While all electricians need a license, not all of them do the same types of jobs.
  • Outside: These types of electricians work outdoors on electrical lines that connect to power plants.
  • Inside: Inside experts typically focus on commercial and industrial buildings that require a lot of power.
  • Residential: Residential electricians work with low-voltage systems and wiring to install fuse boxes and light fixtures.
Watch out for contractors that greatly underbid other electricians. If the price seems too good to be true, it probably is. Also, always remember to get the estimate in writing before settling on a company.
