Electricians are very professional, showed up on time and gave us a free quote for the work we wanted done. The day of the work, he was very friendly and knowledgeable about the work he was doing. Kept us informed and the price was reasonable. Piece of mind doesn't have a price tag and now I know our family is safe. Definitely will use them again!

Brad, the electrician, was great. He arrived immediately to give us a free quote and advice. He came the next day to make repairs and was very professional. We would use them again! The inspector that came to our house stated that he was impressed with his work and that it was nice to see a job well done. Thanks Brad!!!

I am very happy with the services I received from Splice. They came out same day I called and the work was completed the very next day. The electrician (jeff) was very friendly and helpful. I will always use this company for my electrical needs and I would recommend them to any of my family and friends.

The electrician was very helpful and knowledgable. He showed up at the time scheduled and had our power back on within 15 mins. The total cost with materials was less than 100 bucks. I was truly floored. The best experience I've ever had with any home service. Very Happy.

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.
