Schwartz Electric Co Inc
I recently had Schwartz Electric replace the multiple boxes and meter on the outside of my 105 year old house into one breaker box. They did an excellent job and even had a carpenter come repair the damaged siding behind the old boxes they removed. I was left with the extra capacity I needed to install a second water heater as well as spare wiring that was run by Schwartz into the basement and the attic. The young men that were at my residence were polite and professional. We will certainly use and recommend Schwartz Electric in the future.

I know Max Pitts personally and have for several years. There is NO way anyone can say this man does drugs and/or alcohol and would be on a job that way. Anyone who knows Max and his business, knows beyond a doubt, this is garbage. I have used Springhill Electric and happily refer them at each opportunity. I've never heard a complaint from anyone who called them. Sometimes it's not the contractor....

Patterson Electric
I've had nothing but great service from this company. I've worked with them for over 8 years and wouldn't trust any one with my electrical needs other than Patterson electric. Their technicians are so courteous and helpful as well as knowledgeable about the jobs they do. Their prices are fair and the work is high quality!

I can recommend Schwartz Electric without reservation, they did a great job changing our fuse boxes to circuits. The technicians were professional, the prices competitive, and the follow-up outstanding.

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.
