Pro Electric
So we are diyer's with no idea about electric, so in the midst of our kitchen we called Pro Electric for advice. They can out, explained to us all the quirks of our older home and could give us a history of work that has been done over the years based on looking at the wiring. Michael showed us what to do and even walked our home to point a couple of things out. The first thing was our panel was Federal Pacific, which he told us was a fire hazard, the second was that the pole on our roof was creating a leak and needed to be returned to its original placement. When he left it was like we had taken a whole course in electrical, we felt comfortable with the small jobs and were able to determine what was too big for us. The price was very reasonable and we set up an appointment for his suggested improvements. After he left, we wanted to verify everything he told us, especially before paying for such a large improvement. Our google search confirmed everything he said about our panel and pole and the price quoted was extremely fair. So if this review isn't updated you can assume they can, they worked and the service is still five stars.

All City Electric
Owner came out to do inspection of breaker box when I was selling home . Determined electric panel needed replacement. The damage was extensive and obvious to even me. In fact, had the buyer not requested the inspection, would have never known my home could have caught fire. Home insurance denied my claim because guy they sent out said damage from lightning and not covered. Wrote out estimate for replacement that was double that from City Electric. Needless to say, had panel replaced by City Electric, which did the repair within two days of my call and performed total home inspection of every outlet, appliance and electrical system. Also wrote letter to my insurer to help me appeal its denial as City Electric did not agree that damage was due to lightning. This company did excellent work at a reasonable price promptly and professionally and went out of its way in helping me deal with my insurer. Highly recommend. Patty

Osborne Electric
I called Osborne one day and they came to my house the next morning at 8:00 a.m. I had them put an electrical outlet on the outside of my house in the back yard. Juan showed up on time, was courteous, explained how it would be done and did the job in the amount of time he said. I was very pleased with the entire experience. I will use them again and recommend to all my friends. Thank you.

Osborne Electric
My overall experience with Osborne Electric was great from the estimate to the installation. Every representative I dealt with was very professional explaining the worked involved and answering all the questions I had. They were on time to every appointment and even gave me cost saving ideas as we discussed my various projects. I plan to us them in the future for all of my electrical needs.

We had to have them come out to install a box for a new electric water heater. Turns out we had to get a whole new electrical panel. Jason was the technician we had and he did an outstanding job. Courteous, professional and honest. I would recommend them to anyone.

Douglas came out and put in a few lights, a ceiling fan and a new switch or two. Excellent job, this was over one year ago; everything still works great. No issues; good company, great price.

Justin identified the source of the problem and repaired it. Possibly prevented a fire in my home. Very nice and professional!
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.
