Mr Mighty Electric
We had a technician Jay, he was an awesome! Very professional and did not act like he just wanted our money. He actually cared about us and our safety. I have had previous technicians who did not care and just wanted our money. Jay is an awesome asset to your team! I will continue to contact mr mighty for all my electrical work, but I would personally only ask for Jay! :)

Quick phone response. After calling they did come out and the electricians were there waiting for us. They replaced the fuse box and outside service and brought it to code. They cleaned up behind themselves too. The work was done quickly and we felt we were only being charged for work that was needed- no hidden extras and no unnecessary repairs or replacements. Thanks!

Great Company to work with.. Hired them to rewire my building and did a wonderful job. I have a 3 unit building with basement. The electricians are very courteous and professional and cleaned up after work was completed. I would definitely recommend them to others.Thanks STS Electric for doing such a wonderful job. Keep up the good work.

I have used Sts Electric twice in the past 4 months ( two different issues ) and both times, the electrician, Mike, was on time, courteous and quick to find the problem and fix it. I will recommend to anyone who asks for a good electrician. The dispatcher even calls after to confirm the my job was done to my satisfaction.

I called STS Electric for an emergency electrical situation at my home. In my experience, I could not have done better. STS management, technicians, and office personnel are extremely knowledgeable, skilled, and thorough. I highly recommend STS for all and especially emergency electrical issues.

The technician came out and installed a new panel in my home. He was very professional, answered all of my questions, and finished before the estimated time. I would recommend this company. Their prices are fair, and technicians are knowledgeable, and work fast.

Great guys. Contacted them for an emergency. There was a strong burning smell from the electrical panel. They found the problem right away and had all the material to fix right then. John was very professional and courteous. Will definitely use them again.

Dreisilker had what I needed when I needed it. And the price was very reasonable. I didn't have to wait long and the atmosphere was friendly.
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.
