Electrical reviews in San Diego


Overall I feed I got a great value. However due to some confusion at the beginning of the visit and lack of follow-up I downgraded the ranking. The electrician showed up on time and was polite and professional. The initial confusion was that the deal I bought was supposed to include a whole house inspection, a report, plus one hour of labor. It was not until the end of the first hour - when he mentioned he was ready to leave - that I realized the electrician thought the whole visit was supposed to be one hour. I had confirmed the deal with

before I bought it, so I called him and he straightened things out with the worker. However, I never got a "report" other than the electrician said he found a open junction box that needed a cover, but missed another one. Since the previous owners had put solar panels on the house I had some questions about the wiring and how the solar panels were doing. He said the wiring was OK (?) and he didn't know much about the solar set up (OK, that's fair as he doesn't install them). So in the end, I am not sure if he ever did a "whole house inspection." The other issue was I emailed

about this twice (14 and 17 of

) and never got an email back. Frankly, I was satisfied with what I got so I didn't pursue it. Again, I feel I got a great value and the worker did a good job, it was just less than what I expected based on the coupon (thus the B ranking).

contacted me to set up an appointment and get an idea of what needed to be done. I had purchased 2 hours of electrician work for $79. I had a list of five things that needed to be done. There were several things my home inspector noted that were unsafe, While

was in the attic working on one open junction, he found 2 others that the inspector didn't mention, and he fixed those as well. He gave me an estimate on the replacement of my breaker panels, fixed a bedroom outlet that had been wired wrong and was not working. He also checked my light fixture boxes to see if they would support fans, and verified that there was electrical run to the dining room where there is no fixture yet. He also repaired the GFI circuit to the pool light which was wired wrong and was dangerous. At this point we ran out of time, but agreed to over an hour to replace the pool filter timer and close up the pool light circuit, making it safe. We agreed he would come back after I obtained a new pool light to install the new light and run new wiring to the switch at that time. The wires were stripped inside the conduit, and the boxes at the pool switch were

was very professional, on time and clean and tidy. He was very knowledgeable about what he was doing, and it really does seem he loves his work, and he takes pride in what he does.I know I have some more electrical work that needs to be done over the next few months, and I have no doubt

The installer was fantastic. The fan was installed in the living room ceiling and was a very difficult location with no attic. However, the installer did not give-up and worked three hours to get it in. Definitely use this company again.

I have used

The lights look beautiful and provide excellent light throughout the room. I had very poor lighting from 2 lamps prior. I have 4 old canned fixtures in my kitchen and 3 more in the hall that I'm going to have switched over to the new

's. The worker was polite and very adept at his job.

I initially had this provider come for a basic outlet install when he uncovered per-existing wiring that was faulty and not to code, he discussed my options and quotes, no pressure to use his services, and completed all the work (staying until 8:40pm!) at my request. The provider was professional and did good work, explaining the process every step of the way.

They were very responsive at first in an effort to schedule service. Communication was not great, the deal was confusing about what they would provide for the one hour of service after the inspection. Communication dropped off after owner was unable to keep appt due to family emergency involving another employee. Received no response to a couple more efforts then requested a refund. At that point, owner was willing to reschedule appt. However, lost confidence in them by then-

He was great. Arrived on time, explained the pros and cons of the locations I proposed, and then installed the outlet. He also cleaned up thoroughly and provided bids for other projects I'm considering. I would use him again.

Two electricians arrived (I forgot their names, unfortunately). Both were friendly and got right to work after explaining every process and my options.
These guys were absolutely great in every respect. Both worked efficiently and quickly, both were friendly and good communicators. They kept me updated on timing estimates as projects were finished. And the quality of work looked excellent. They cleaned up after themselves, installed wall plates were properly (i.e., straight), they patched any drywall holes the made (and some holes that others had made). They were flexible about taking lunch (i.e. going off the clock) when my wife needed to run to pickup a replacement part from the hardware store. They quickly troubleshot a particularly hard to find intermittent problem. I can't be sure if it is fixed, since they just left and it was intermittent, but they certainly found some loose wiring that seems very likely to be the culprit.
I couldn't be happier with the level of service.
They got a B for punctuality because they showed up 15-30 minutes after the scheduled window; though I received a call well inside that window letting me know that they were going a little bit over on the prior job. Though not ideal, it is reasonable to expect, and they communicated promptly without me having to wonder where they were.
They are extremely easy to get a hold of, proactive about calling with confirmations, etc.
Note: although I do not think this is an issue to be reflected in the grading, they are a bit overbook due to the success of their Angie's List deal, so my appointment was scheduled roughly 3 weeks after I bought the coupon. None of my issues were emergencies so this was fine, but for an emergency it could be problematic.
Basically, if your job can wait long enough to fit within their current availability, these are the guys to use.
