I was looking for an electrician to help with the remodel of my kitchen so I thought I'd give these guys a call for an estimate based on some good reviews I had read on another site. The guy came over and spent literally 5 minutes looking at a switch in the kitchen and then told me that he'd get back to me with a quote on the rest of the work. Oh did I mention that he charged me $85 bucks for the 5 minutes he was here! The worst part was I never heard back from him regarding the quote even after calling him multiple times after the fact. So that's their scam. They come out to see if they LIKE the job, charge you 85 bucks for merely looking at the job and then disappearing after the fact leaving you with no quote, and an incomplete job. Not bad work if you can get it! My advice to everyone out there is to avoid this place if you need help as they are only out to help themselves.

They were subcontracted by my swimming pool company, but so far the best experience I've had with any of the people brought in by the pool company. Although they took a bit longer to get back to my home, they went above and beyond to ensure I was happy. Ortiz and Danny are a valuable asset to this company, they are the reason why I'm pleased with RCI. They both were helpful and polite and didn't give up on the job, that was itself challenging. The owner of the company Howard, didn't talk to me directly but he was on the phone with the electricians resolving my problem as well. I couldn't be more pleased with them. I will recommend them to anyone and I wish them much success.

Phenomenal experience with Richard. Extremely knowledgable, excellent Master Electrician. His work is done meticulously and beyond expectations. He did our pool equipment hook up for Champion Pools and Spas here in Port Saint Lucie, and we couldn't find something wrong if we tried.

Paul and his assistant were at my home within 10 mintures of the appointment time. They were very efficient and completed the job required with great expertise. I have used them in the past and will continue to do so. You can't beat the workmanship and the price!!!

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.
