Advantage Service Company
I have used Advantage before it changed it's name. I have used them for plumbing and heat and air. They cost a little more than some individuals, but the service is fast and reliable, and I have never had issues with any of their installations. Well, I had to change my rating. NEVER trust the scheduling. I scheduled the install of a new Heat and Air system, having to wait a week to get it installed the next Monday. When I talked to them later, they inform me the scheduling was never done, and now the next available date is the following Friday. Five more days in 100+ degree weather because someone dropped the ball on a $4,600 job.I guess if I have a small emergency job, I would use again. Otherwise, I think I may try to find someone that can keep a schedule.

An exceptional job by a exceptional team. We had an issue with a 240v wire, breaker and outlet. They arrived quickly and immediately assessed the problem. And, they were great about explaining what was wrong and how they were fixing. We could not be more pleased. We highly recommend them.

Our house was struck by lightening in a recent storm. We called Chapman Service and they were able to come out and repair our electrical issues the same day! I would recommend them to anyone that asks. Their electricians are very knowledgeable and easy to work with.

Woke up in the middle of the night and my heater wouldn't turn off. I went to the thermostat to fix it and it didn't work. Called Chapman Service, they found the problem. Had the part to fix it in his van. Didn't have to wait long!

They came to my house a hot holiday weekend. They put freon in my unit and didn't charge me an arm and a leg on a weekend. I will be sure to call them again if I need anything else.

Our attic fan quit working. I called Chapman Service, they found that the receptacle wasn't working. They happily replaced the receptacle. Wonderful service! Keep it up.
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.
