Shea Electric
BOTTOM LINE: He dragged out a fairly simple fan installation over a month. We agreed on a price, then the day before he was to do the work he emailed to renege on the agreement. DON'T DO BUSINESS HERE. DETAILS: I had read online that he had flaked on others, but I wanted to give him a chance. My bad. I bought a deal for two hours work on LivingSocial ($250) from Shea Electric on Nov/12. Called the same day. Owner Kevin Shea asked me to call back. I did. He said he'd call me back. He didn't. Called again, told him what I needed done (each time I told him about the deal I bought). He said to email him the details of what I wanted done. I did. He emailed a time for an estimate. That was fine but I wanted him to call me first. He said to call him in the morning which I couldn't do. Finally got hold of him days later. Employee Erich came for the estimate Nov/18. He was great but had never installed a fan on a patio like mine. I listened while Erich called the owner to get a quote and explained precisely what it was I wanted. The quote seemed too high. I told him I would install the fans myself. Erich said if I did that it would be considerably less. I was happy. I talked to Kevin and he told me someone would come out to do it next week. Never heard back from him. Called him two weeks later (Dec 4). Phone tag. Once he remembered who I was, he apologized about not getting back to me. Still needed to write up an estimate. I told him he already gave me a verbal estimate but I couldn't find the exact amount. Said he'd send the estimate within the hour. Two days later I got it. It was the expensive price with all the work. I let him know that I had spoken with Erich and he said it would be quite a bit less if I put the fans in. Kevin said the estimate he gave didn't include the fans (even though the estimate explicitly says it does). He was emphatic that I would never have been told that. I told him that I felt like he was saying I was lying. Kevin said he was willing to knock it down $100. I was agreeable. He resent the estimate with $110 knocked off. I was happy. It was to be done on Dec 10. On Dec 9 I received an email saying he was not going to do business with me. I was completely baffled. I now think he realized he wasn't going to make as much money as he wanted because I was using a living social coupon. Whatever... DON'T DO BUSINESS WITH THIS MAN.
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.
