These guys are rip off artists! They charge you travel time and do not disclose it. They sent two guys and charged $80 per hour per guy. Were there less than hour and the total bill was $150. Spoke with Bill Kranz and he does not seem to care that he is ripping off older people on fixed incomes! NEVER EVER USE THESE GUYS! Shysters!!!

Hands down the WORST company in Williamsport. This guy was the general contractor who built our home and installed (if you can call it that) everything. In 6 years since construction we have had to tear out and replace 30 % of the foundation, replace the furnace and air conditioner due to improper installation, repair improperly installed plumbing causing a flood in our living room, repair electrical work, replace the dishwasher due to improper installation, replace the shutters because only some were painted and installed properly and the others caused primer to run down ands stain our siding, etc.... And the best part is that this guy lives down the street and refuses to even admit that they did anything wrong. Bottom line is they suck. And his kid who works for him was smoking pot while working in our home. We suspect that many missing valuable items from our basement were stolen by him when he was working down there.
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.
