CANNOT SAY ENOUGH GREAT THINGS ABOUT RUSSELL! Our electricity started flaring back and forth. We left a message (Sunday) and thought for sure we'd be that way a whole nother day. Nope! He called shortly after and asked simple questions over the phone. I took some pics and sent him and he was on his way shortly after. I had a house FULL OF SCREMAING CHILDREN. My husband and I were babysitting, of course, when all this happened and Russell wasn't phased for a second. He gave kids stickers and flash lights when he turned the power off. Lol. Great guy, explained everything as he went along. I feel so at ease now that he's looked and repaired our breakers. Even seeing things that never should have been! Even apologizing for people and their work, even though he had nothing to do with it. Loved this guy. This place is our go to electrician now for everything. We just got an electric car too so as we chatted about what was needed. I know who I'll be hiring for that job! Russell...hands down. Guys a genius electrician. Don't think I can trust anyone else now lol.

I normally don't write reviews but had to applaud this business. I had a list of electrical problems that have built up over the years. I called and talked with a very friendly gentleman. He called back and came over sooner than promised. He explained my options for each problem and was very knowledgeable. Now everything is fixed and I feel safe. This is a great company. Will call again and recommend to others.

Wish I could give More Stars. I'm not good with electricity. Our kitchen fixture began to blink and we were worried. I called and left a message and Able got right back to me. He came out before he had promised because he was in our area. He replaced the parts inside the fixture and now everything works perfect. We are very pleased with the job. Thanks Able Electric!

We tried someone else first but they said the wait time was a week. Russel came right out the same day and fixed everything. He was super friendly and had everything on his truck. Very professional and knowledgeable.

We found these folks online. They came out quick and got us fixed up. I was really happy with the service and the price. It was a difficult problem that has been plaguing us for some time. Other companies had tried but failed. This is definitely who we will be calling in the future.
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.
