Jake & Son Elec Collaboration
We got such quality electrical work from Jake and Son Electric. They came at their scheduled time and rewired my home from front to back. They are a very friendly company of people who actually care about the quality of their work and their customer service was the best. They called back the next day to make sure their work was satisfactory. They told us if we needed any more work done to not hesitate to give them a call at any time and we did call them back a year later to wire our storage house so we could have electricity there also and they did a wonderful job on our storage house as well. We wouldn't dare call anyone else for the job. Jake and Son did just what their ad said, "they did the job right the first time." God bless all of you at Jake and Son and keep up the excellent work.

This company did an excellent job installing my new air conditioning system. They cleaned up after themselves and kept me up to date with all details of the job. I will use them from now on and refer them to anyone who needs electrical, HVAC, or generator work. They were honest and up front about all pricing and the ONLY company i know that doesnt charge by the hour. GREAT work guys!!! :)

Electric Pro did a wonderful job installing my outlets in my master bath. They cleaned their mess and I love their up front pricing. Not like the other company's who charge by the hour.

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.
