I am giving the rating a "one" star, because it doesn't allow for a "no" star. I just purchased a residence in the Muskogee area. My credit rating is excellent...the bank loaned the money, even though I hadn't sold my other residence yet. However, the electric company has decided on their own, that I am a credit risk. Apparently, they are more knowledgeable than financial institutions.In addition, they are allowed to keep my money for an undetermined number of years, without paying any interest to me. I thought the government was the only agency that could legally cheat people.

Renfro Electric Inc
The male worker who showed up to do the job told me it would be one price. Then when I recieved the bill it was 130.00 more and when I questioned it I was told two workers were on the job and I had to pay for both. I have never in all my life had to pay for a job on how many people it took. Only by the job whether it took two or ten. I should only had to pay for the job. And the job was changing out a bathroon vent fan!! Cost me 430.00!!!!! Tell me I wasnt over charged. The vent fan itself only cost 100 bucks! So all the rest was over charged in labor!! I will NEVER refer or use this company again!!!!!!!! Takes advantage of people! !!
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.
