Timothy S Evans Electrician
After a crazy storm that caused a piece of our siding to blow off and our upstairs to lose power we called Tim. He responded to email right away, came out quickly, gave us a free estimate and then came back promptly to complete the project. He found the problem so fast it was incredible. He even labeled our panel for us. Very helpful, very nice to work with and super reliable. We will use him again soon for sure!

Dave Gallant Electric & Alarm
My wife and I own a 1917 craft house that still had a lot of knob and tube. Dave was affordable and his crew just finished tearing it out, rewiring and installing a new service. Dave was helpful and affordable and the crew that worked here was courteous, hardworking and took pride in their work. We will recommend Dave to anyone and will use him again if we have more work.

Needing some help with setting up lighting and plugs in my attic, Dave and his help provided exceptional service. He was very affordable, was punctual, and left no mess behind. If I have any electrical needs in the future I will be sure to use Dave and his help.

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.
