Conejo Valley Electric
Outstanding! We are very pleased with the work Billy and his team from Conejo Valley Electric did at our home. We needed 3 light fixtures upgraded to LED recessed lights and an additional 8 lights added. CVE We also relocated 2 lights and added 4 ceiling fans which required wire runs, ceiling boxes and switches.I had several bids but elected to go with Billy due the reviews I read on Yelp as well as the feedback I received from neighbors. In addition, Billy is one of the few electricians who will finish the job so it is paint ready. In fact, my painter is here now touching things up and is so impressed with the paint ready finish work that CVE did that he has asked for their contact details. Billy’s pricing was very reasonable and the quality of work was fantastic. As other reviewers have indicated his guys show up on time, they take care to drape and cover the adjacent work area to minimize dust & mess and they clean up after themselves. They were professional courteous and they worked hard. We are very happy with the results and we will defiantly be calling Billy and the guys at Conejo Valley Electric for any future electrical needs. Highly recommend!

Priority Electric
I highly recommend Priority Electric. Mike is very professional, informative, does good work, neat, polite, on time, and has reasonable rates. He recently replaced light fixtures in my 2 bathrooms. A few years ago he replaced light fixtures in my hallway, as well as, patio lights. I'm glad I've found an excellent, reliable electrician to call upon when the need arises.
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.
