Boykin Electrical & Assoc
I was pleased to find Brian Boykin. He gave me a reasonable rate and we scheduled an appointment. He called the evening before to confirm, which I appreciated. He seemed very knowledgable and did all the work I asked for, and even a little more. I was happy with the placement of the new lighting in my garage. He also added an electrical outlet and two cable outlets inside the house. All required that he access my attic. He did a clean job and everything works perfectly. Brian also was happy to answer questions about other electrical concerns we had with wiring and our electrical panel and lines coming to the house. I would highly recommend his work.

Shields Electric
I recently moved into a new house and had Jeff Shields take out the ugly fluorescent light in my kitchen. The new recessed lights he installed provide me with a well lit kitchen. I would recommend Shields Electric to anyone who wants friendly, prompt service.

Our company used Griffin Electric to replace an outlet. They came in for a free estimate and gave a fair price. They were finished very quickly, within 15-20 mins, and did a fantastic job! Thanks Griffin!

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.
