House Of Lights
We have purchased lighting from House of Lights on on a few occasions over the years and have been very satisfied. There were never any issues and it was simply a positive buying experience.Our recent purchase was more complicated in the sense that we purchased a kitchen ceiling fan, installed it but were disappointed with the light distribution. Suffice it to say that their management worked with us to reach a proper and satisfactory solution. Extremely nice people to deal with! That was the real test: How they handled a situation that went beyond a normal sale and into negotiating territory. I highly recommend them for outstanding customer service and quality merchandise (which is competitively-priced).

Harmony Electric
Tech came out and gave an estimate and called back same day to schedule for the next day. I planned my entire day around this appointment at 3:30, I receive a call at 4:00 stating sorry not going to make it can we reschedule. If your time is valuable, call someone else.

Dana Barcelo Construction Company
I originally called on a gutter-cleaning ad that I found in the Plain Dealer. He was very quick and professional and only charged $60 for my entire house. The second time I called, it was for a deck extension; he brought out a partner and they were both there only a couple of days after I called. They took a couple of days longer than I expected, but they didn't goof around and once it was done, it was really well-made and they gave me a reasonable rate.

Brown & Son Electric
Dave is rude, I called for an estimate, he cut me off the whole time I was trying to tell him what I needed. I left a message at first and he called me back on an unlisted number. SKETCHY. Would not use.
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.
