Harmon Electric Inc
We had just moved into our new home in Electra, TX when we encountered a problem with flickering lights & the microwave in the kitchen not getting enough wattage. We tried a different microwave & it also wasn't getting enough power so we knew it wasn't the microwave. My father-in-law knows a little about electrical work so we had him come over & he said the same thing happened to him & it was on the city's end. We got in contact with City Hall which had SWRE come out. We specifically requested that they call us when they got to the location so we could show them the problem but they didn't. They checked the meter & said it was not on their end, it was the house & that they had been to this same house several times in the past. That obviously made me feel not too good about buying the house. :( We then contacted Rick of Harmon Electric & within the 1st 5 minutes of being there he confirmed it was in fact, on the city's end. He also said that whoever did the electrical in the house did a really good job so that made me feel happy & reassured about our new home. :) We told the city manager who once again had SWRE come out & finally fix the problem. We couldn't move in the rest of our appliances until the issue was fixed. Rick of Harmon Electric was very professional & we were so impressed, that we had him come out on 2 more occasions to install a ceiling fan, chandelier & vent-a -hood. All done professionally, promptly & affordably. Just learned my bathroom heater doesn't work so as soon as I get a new one, I am definitely calling Harmon Electric to install it. TEN STARS
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.
