Genesis Electric really helped my wife and I when we were in a pinch. They came out in the middle of a big snow storm for emergency service at 10pm. All the other emergency service companies didn't even answer their phone. Price was very reasonable (under $200) to fix the short from our electrical box. We than used them to fix a number of repairs needed to sell our house. These repairs included replacing 10 outlets, updating parts of our electrical box, installing two ceiling fans with a new electrical outlet w/conduit, and installing two new outlets. Price was only about $1200 including all parts and labor. We than used them to do an almost whole house rewire on our old 1920's bungalow. This included many new runs of outlets, switches, electrical panel, fixtures, etc. All done professional with permits. Price was around $7000, which was way lower than the competitors. The owner is very down to earth, and explains what they are doing, and any other issues to consider. No pressure at all. We found them online, had never heard of them prior, but after six houses where we've had many other electricians, Genesis Electric is the best by far when it comes to price, professionalism, and quality of work. I highly recommend their work and will use them again.

Crown Point, IN Out of the last several technicians that have come to our house over the past years, whether for HVAC, or Water Heater, or whatever...this has been the best experience. Dean was courteous, professional, friendly and helpful. It was nice to have that, and although we couldn't get the issue resolved (due to it being a defect in my HVAC), it was a pleasant experience and I would recommend to anyone. You don't see that very often these days. Thank you.

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.
