Discount Electric
Best electrician in town with the best price. Michael came out on a Saturday morning when he doesn't take jobs. He put in a new electric panel, helped my dad with a siding, reinforced the electric poles at a low cost. Excellent job! I am very happy with his service and would refer him every time. Don't hesitate to call Discount electric. You won't regret it. I'm a very satisfied customer!

I called them for pricing to install some deco lights in front of my house. They stopped by gave me a quote and the rest is history. I can say work was done pretty good for the price they gave me!!! Finally, in front of my garage isn't dark anymore! Thanks Scott Electric! :)

Called Discount Electric after the company that I use didn't show up after calling them for two days. Discount showed up within one hour, fixed the problem in two hours! Very professional. Price was cheaper than expected. Excellent company.

I needed them to come in 3 hrs before I worked and they got here and did the job. I was so relieved to have my electricity working again. It was cheaper than I expected. Thanks. Mike Gonzalez knows what he is doing.

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.
