Qwic Electric
Called Qwic Electric to find a short in my garage wiring. We have a very large house with some 6 breaker boxes, which are not labeled. I was putting it off as I figured that just the trouble shooting was going to be very expensive. John came out within an hour of my call. He was very knowledgeable and found the short within 20 min! Very impressed as he had to work around all the junk in the garage! He fixed it, and even hung a new motion sensor light all within the hour. Very reasonable charges!! I was thrilled! I will not hesitate to call him when I have a problem in the future. Super nice guy, very professional, reasonable rates and fast! (Oh the phone # listed on yp is not current, I clicked on the website link and got (218) 590-0820. which worked)

We have used Park Electric for years and couldn't be happier with the service they provide. They are very prompt, honest and their prices are very reasonable. We have recommended them to many friends always with great feedback. SL

This honest electrician talked me through fixing my own problem over the phone, even though it would have been an easy service call and $ for him. I will definitely hire him for any future electrical problems.

They don't advertise because they are so busy without it. They're busy because they are prompt, efficient, friendly, and incredibly good. Their fees are very reasonable, especially considering the excellent quality of their work.PJ
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.
