BEWARE. Go elsewhere or get it in writing. We called to get a well pump replaced. Our pump was working but not properly. The job took an hour but he charged us for 2 people for 2 hours. Total lie and it certainly doesn't take two people to replace a well pump to start with. The owner didn't know what he was doing as he didn't plumb in a fitting to prime the pump. They also didn't have tools they needed when he showed up. In the end we were charged nearly double for the cost of the pump, crazy inflated prices for PVC misc items, 45% for overhead, and 20% for Profit. $1500 for an hours work and a $350 well pump. This company is dishonest and will rape an unsuspecting customer. In the end the pump didn't have good pressure and we will have to get it redone. We tried to negotiate the bill to a reasonable amount and the owner is unwilling to be reasonable. He also took our old pump that was running..... we had to call and demand he bring it back since it was not his property.

John and his team redid our entire existing AC system in our home a few years ago. Since then, we have had our unit maintained by John, and I have to say, having worked for a big company that does work of this kind, it is very rare to work directly with someone who completely understands how things work inside and out. Any time an issue has come up (we had a power surge fry some elements of our unit), John has been able to find the cause and fix the problem. I wouldn't hesitate to hire him again.

Initially I was impressed that John came to our rescue on Mardi Gras weekend but when the temporary fix burst at 0530 on Sunday morning I should have cut my losses then. It took more than 3 weeks for our shower to be able to be used again. Now here I am 7+ months later just discovering that the shower drain that was leaking and lead to our original problem has continued to leak all these months. When I called John, he didn't seem to care. So I have a new plumber and spending more $$$ for a poor job.

I spoke with John about my hot water heater on Monday right before closing time, I got an appointment immediately for Tues at 9am. I can't say enough about John he was on time not a minute late and very pleasant. Came in got the job done within 30 mins cleaned up and job well done. I would recommend this company and if I need any repairs done John is on speed dial.

Live Wire Electric
Does horrible work and does anything possible to get around the job the cheapest way! I DO NOT recommend using this guy. He splices wires when your NOT even supposed to.

Gatwood Electric Inc
Called Gatwood on a Friday for a job on Monday night. They committed and said they could do it on Friday. Called back on Monday and backed out on me. VERY SLOW RESPONSE TIME. Try faster companies that don't dabble around, beat around the bush and can keep their commitments. Will not use in the future.
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.
