This is the second time we used Dalton Electrical Services and again they delivered very professional service. Second time we called them for Electrical Safety Inspection and fix 4 spotlights. The property didn't pass the inspection in the first round, but electrician fixed the faults with no hassle or worries to us in a tight timeline and provided all the documents we needed the same day. We will definitely use his services again.

Bayshore Electric
I recommend Bayshore Electric. I needed work done on residential ceiling lights quickly. The elecrtician was able to fit me in at a time that was convenient and they didn't keep me waiting. They also offered a reasonable price compared with other quotes I'd received. The work was done well and quickly. He knew what they were doing and cleaned up afterwards. I'm very happy with the outcome.

Bayshore Electric came to install 4 external lights on my property. I was extremely satisfied with their work. They explained what they were going to do and were very informative about what they would do. In fact I was so happy with their work I used them for some further electrical work the following week. Definitely someone who will do further work on my property. Highly recommend them.

We found Dalton Electrical Services as we needed some work done at our new office space.The electrician and his helpful team were able to install a complex system of down lights, as replacement for the nasty 7-eleven style fluros that came with the space.Great job and really happy with the work,He even showed me how to change a downlight halogen so we can sort it out in the future.

Needed a light fitting replaced, but ended up finding out that the problem was much more serious, the wiring itself was burnt due to an electrical fire. Despite this, Dalton Electrical Services didn't charge any extra for the unexpected hurdle, and got the job done efficiently. Super friendly, fair and definitely concerned about customer service. Would definitely recommend them.

Obviously very professional, easy to communicate with and the 2 technicians who installed the downlights were fantastic, polite and considerate. Great to deal with them. I would recommend them to others.

Smith Electric Services and their team are incredible. I cannot recommend highly enough. They installed 30 LED lights in my deck, 2 outdoor lights, an outdoor timer socket, 2 indoor wall fixtures and 6 dimmer switches. All done flawlessly, timely and cleanly. I wish I had more electrical work for them to do. Thank you team.

Dalton Electrical Services was always punctual - both when providing a quote and for the work itself - and helpful and informative about what was required. The work was done efficiently with a minimum of interruption and the place was spotless on completion. Highly recommended and I will be sure to use again in future.”

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.
