Alamo City's Elite Electric
I called Alamo City's Elite Electric today, Saturday, October 31st. Since it was a Saturday, I was not expecting much help. Boy, was I wrong! Scott Garcia, an employee of Alamo City, kindly answered my phone call right away. I explained to him that Alamo City Elite was the company that did the electrical for my new home in the River Chase subdivision of New Braunfels, TX. I also told him that I had an outside outlet stop working during the major flooding and rains yesterday. He walked me through the process of finding the GFCI resets and we finally found the problem. Over the phone, this employee was so patient in helping me track down and rule out possible issues that would cause my outlet to quit working. It was a big deal as that was the outlet that my internet and cable plugged in to, so they were not working either. It turns out, the reason my outside outlet quit working temporarily was actually a protective measure for homeowners. So he explained to me what I needed to do which was to locate and reset the appropriate GFCI switch. This was all news to me, but am thankful these measures are in place in my home. He was so professional, helpful, courteous and knowledgeable that I was able to cancel my call to the cable/internet provider as he fixed my issues and gave me back my connectivity to cable, internet and my entertainment systems. Thank you Scott Garcia, for answering the Saturday morning phone call, and troubleshooting our electrical problem; you were/are a bright and shining light and we appreciate your patience. As customers of Alamo City's Elite Electric, you have definitely earned our loyalty and respect!! Keep up the great work, Scott and Alamo City's Elite Electric!!

I was having issues with our outlets in the garage this happen on Friday evening called was able to get the emergency phone number. I spoke to a supervisor. He was able to help me out I explained I had a freezer plugged in and it tripped the gfci and none of my outlets were working. He stated that my freezer needed a dedicated line couldn't be on a regular outlet that it would eventually burn it out. But as a temp fix he walked me thru how to reset the gfci and said they could come out to give me an estimate for a dedicated line. Who knew you needed a dedicated line for a freezer in garage never was told this I lived in a house that was 30 yrs old prior to this new one but it makes sense now new guideless to keep our houses from burning down. But I MUST SAY ALAMO CITY'S ELITE ELECTRIC HAS GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE.... THANK YOU.

Triple R Electric
Lino came out and looked at the problem, tore it apart himself and told me he was going to put it back together so we could use it while he sent his employer Jimmy to pick up a part and come back and finish the job. They were fast, they charged us 1/6 of what another company quoted us, and told us that they would bill us, that they just wanted to get us up and running. With this heat he didnt want us to do without air conditioning. The guys were great, very polite, and did a great job.

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.
