We Energies Customer Service
Customer service is horribly rude...kept interrupting. We Energies does not care if you have small children, they will make you freeze all day until they feel ready to turn the heat on at 8pm. Very unhappy with them. Horrible experiences everytime I have to deal with them...not to mention they had the wrong number on my it wasnt even me they were calling.

An endless tiresome misdirection from the answering machine. Very unhelpful but in Milwaukee they have a monopoly but still there is simply no excuse for a phone tree that seems designed to frustrate callers. 51 minute wait time? Maybe you should hire some real people to answer the phones, real people who can make decisions based on talking to your real people customers?

Best Electric Service Inc
Recently had Best Electric do some miscellaneous electric work , including dishwasher and garbage disposal connection, dining room fixture, ceiling fan and added some outlets. The person who did the estimate was on time, courteous, and prompt with the estimate. The electrician was the same--punctual and did great work. We were selected for a City of Milwaukee followup inspection and the inspector said a tricky outlet installation was done "perfectly...text book." Would absolutely use again. A pleasure to work with.

I would give Engler Electric high marks all around. The customer service person who took my call was knowledgeable and courteous. I had 4 separate issues in my home, and they were all taken care of the same day I called. The electrician was fantastic!
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.
