Never do business with this company or Chris Pelletier. He is constantly moving his business to avoid bill collectors and process servers. Go to the Charleston County Clerk of Court website and search his personal name along with his company, and you will see the long history of how he scams people. For those that have already been scammed, please write a formal complaint to the SCDLLR, contractors board. If enough complain, then this clown will be forced out of business.

Can't say enough good things about Mr Sparky. I needed power run to my hot tub on my back patio and some dimmer switches installed. I called on a Friday and they sent out a technician (James). James performed the work requested in a professional and timely manner. The installation looks great and performs perfectly. Kudos to James and Mr Sparky ... and by the way, I was able to enjoy the hot tub that night.

Omni Construction Services
Avoid. In it for as much of your money as they can squeeze out of you. Nothing more.

William came to my house as soon as I called him and had a very quick fix for my problem. I was so impressed by his thorough attention; he even pointed out a problem with my smoke detectors that will save me a great deal of future headache. I would definitely recommend this company for any electrical problem!

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.
