I recently bought a home that has a hot tub. The previous owners had not gone to the trouble or expense of getting the tub hooked up properly, to it's own outlet with GFCI breaker and had it rigged up to an extension cord, which eventually caught fire!! I called one electric company and they came out to look at the job and obviously took me for a fool and tried to rip me off like you wouldn't believe! Then I called Sherman Electric and the owner was very knowledgeable over the phone and assured me the job would get done. They charge a reasonable hourly rate plus cost of parts. Keith was the technician who came out, right on time! Despite the extremely complicated nature of the job, with many hurdles to overcome, he was able to figure out a way to get the hot tub on it's own breaker and outlet. This company knows what they are doing and I am highly impressed with their skill and expertise. Keith got the job done in a very reasonable amount of time. He worked very hard, non stop until the job was done. I highly recommend this company.

Had a vaulted ceiling put in and had to have all the wiring redone. When the ceiling was pulled down we had a mess of wires running everywhere! They were very knowledegable, jumped right in, and made it happen. I highly recommend this company.

The electrician (Keith) was very efficient. He walked with a purpose taking no cigarette or lunch breaks and got the job done very professionally. They tell you what to expect and get the job done to code. I highly recommend this company.

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.
