West Houston Electric, Inc.
I don't normally take the time write reviews for anyone and don’t always have confidence in who is writing some of the reviews I read. I had to take the time to recommend this company due to my COMPLETE satisfaction. I had 3 projects I wanted to bundle together to get done all at one time and went out for 4 estimates. I was amazed with the difference in both the strategy/engineering and the PRICE differences. Randy Deyo, the owner of West Houston Electric came to my home and surveys the work and came up with the most logical and efficient solution. He also had pretty close to the best price but his professionalism and ability to understand my needs and offer the right solution was unparalleled. One estimate I got was 3 times the cost! The story doesn’t end there..When his team of 2 guys came to my house they were great and followed Randy's plan perfectly. The work was extremely neat and done well. They even took the time to explain everything to me. I will never consider using any other electric contactor other than West Houston Electric.

I would recommend them to anyone, they helped my mom with her house when she had a fire and they were reasonable price. I had different estimates and they were the least expensive and their people were very helpful when dealing with the city of Houston. I had an estimate, with beginnings with J and ends with Moore and they wanted $3,800, for the same job they charged me $780, yeah!

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.
