Sds Electric
I used SDS last year when I purchased my home for two small projects. They were prompt, professional, and efficient. If I need an electrician again I'll definitely be calling.

Vk Engineers Inc.
Horrible experience with this firm. Took weeks to prepare for a simple gable carport and then took just as long for one simple correction. THEN charges one fee at the beginning and adds additional fees for corrections from both plan check and inspector because his work lacks information needed from the get go. Shady and cash gouging engineer!

His work is impeccable and is renoun throughout the community. No job is too small or too big. His exquiste craftmanship leaves no room for error. Perfection is his middle name. Do it right the first time as there is no room for error.

Voltech Electric
I just finished using Aram of Voltec last week to install a Level 2 Electric Vehicle charger. Aram gave good advice on how to save some money on a related repair, and he was professional and a very good attitude. I also got a several quotes from others and Aram was quite competitive. Highly recommended. Good guy.

Called him for a leaking faucet, less than 1 hour later, when he's finished, he charges me $375!! Who makes that much per hour? And he wanted cash! Seriously?

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.
