Initial phone call to request electrical services to have simple rope lighting installed underneath kitchen cabinets not returned for five weeks. Once first appointment set up, the worker did not show. No phone call as to why. Worker showed up next day unannounced. No phone call to inform us. Worker in home for 8 hours and at end of day stated he could not work with the current wiring. Eight hours to figure that out?? Worker left with us having less working lights than when he first arrived. Worker left all supplies which were pulled for our job. Worker told me to call office next day to reschedule another appointment. Made that phone call next day - took one week to get that phone call returned. We were told worker would be there next day at 8am. No show again. Rescheduled with Beacon for next business day. Received phone call that day from Beacon that an emergency occurred and work could not be done that day. At that point we cancelled the job with Beacon. Two days later we had an $800 bill from Beacon in the mail. On that bill was $230 worth of supplies which were never left at our home the first day. Called Beacon with the intent to speak with "BJ" about the bill. He was too busy to speak with me at that time. He called me back and asked when I was going to pay the bill. I attempted to discuss the missing supplies we had been billed for but not in our possession. I also offered to pay a portion of the bill (more than 50%) and BJ became verbally abusive towards me. I could not get him to rationalize, he just kept screaming and threatening me over the phone. I terminated the conversation. Very unprofessional and incompetent behavior from Beacon Engineering and BJ.

I'm a big believer in giving kudos when they deserved. These guys deserve some serious kudos!! I just moved into an older home and quickly discovered I had an electrical problem that needed to be fixed fast. My friend referred me to Big Mountain Electric. These guys were on time which was great so I wasn't wasting my time waiting around for them. They quickly determined what the problem was and fixed it on the spot. I was a little nervous what my bill was going to be, but I was pleasant surprised how affordable it was. If you need an electrician for a big job, or to just help you hang a fan give these guys a call. You won't be disappointed!!

All of the power in my house went out yesterday after plugging in my range after a remodel. After checking the 'usuals', I called Black Diamond and Dan answered immediately and was great. Power restored quickly and we were able to enjoy the rest of the day.

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.
