Mike & Michaels Electric LLC
Mr Michael has always been able to come out any time I need him for my home or business, He is so knowledgeable of rewire options and really helped me save money and keep my insurance up by bringing my house up to code. And when I call him after hours he always comes quickly for my business and is the best I have seen for tracking down a short or electrical problem and fixing it to my satisfaction without costing me my whole payroll for the week . I would highly recommend Him for all phases of electrical work ion Pensacola!

Selectricity
I recently requested some estimates for some electrical work at my home. After receiving four estimates Selectricity was far lower than anyone else. They showed up when they said they would, completed the work in a timely manner, and did a very nice job. Thanks!

This company wired my new Deck and my new Dock and later repaired all the damaged that I sustained from a lightning strike and did an outstanding job. I would strongly recommend them for any Electrical job!

They made a new outlet for pool, fixed sunroom outlet, and garbage disposal for about the same price as another company that was only going to install outlet for pool. Amazing company, will recommend.

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.
