Mainstream Electric
Absolutely terrible experience with Mainstream Electric. First of all, its correct that the company discloses that there will be a charge of $52.97 ($50 + tax) for them to come out to give you an estimate. I am ok with that BUT when the estimate that they give you is REDICULUS!!!! There is no way that I would aver spend the amount they have quoted me. So, when you are presented with an absolutely outrages estimate and then they charge you $50 for them to tell you that, that to me feels as a rip off. I called someone else, who did the job in a fraction of a cost. Just for an example: they quoted me over $8000 for a job. The other company, showed up on time and fixed everything for $1785. That's a huge difference in price. Just beware of this company, they might do good job, but even in Nordstrom prices a reasonably priced.

I had the same experience as rathdrum77. Yes, I am a real (potential) customer, but luckily I cancelled my appointment before they came out and charged me $50.00 just to get a quote on the work I need done. Walmart vs. Nordstrom....Please! This company thinks a little too highly of themselves. I am not saying that they aren't good but I am saying that there are other company's on par with them that actually want my business. The service manager that I spoke to on the phone told me to read their reviews. She must have been talking about the testimonials on their own website, because I know 2.5 stars on Yelp and Google is not favorable. I don't remember the last time I went to the grocery store and had to pay to find out how much the Haagen Dazs was before agreeing to buy it instead of Ben and Jerry's. Oh, wait!...It hasn't happened. As far as I am concerned If you want my business and feel so confident that you are as reasonably priced as you say you are, you wouldn't have to charge me a fee to find out because there would be no doubt in your mind that I would choose you to do my work. I wouldn't mind an additional $50.00 tacked on to the price if I elect to use your services, but just for a quote....waste of my money. Good luck getting new customers with that business model; repeat business is all you will get. ~Not a new customer

Merit Electric
Being a first time home owner, I was very nervous having to hire an electrician with the recent electrical issues my new house had - outlets not working, dishwasher ckt not working, outside motion detector lights dead and flat out - bad electrical from previous homeowner.I hired Merit Electric. They were affordable (financing!), service manager super friendly and they got me in right away!! When the electrician showed up, he was kind, punctual and actually spoke to me in Layman's terms too. Bravo! Will hire again (but hopefully not too soon!..LOL). Highly recommended.

All American Electric
I have used All American Electric for going on a year at Geiger Grove Storage out by the airport. We have done about seven different projects and most of our jobs were done on a time and material basis. I found All American Electric on Craigslist and could not be happier with a vender. Reasonable. Competent. Responsive. .
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.
