"I have been working with them for 15 years. They are honest, do very good work and are fast. They are professionals- they come in and get the job done in a big hurry." They always get their estimates and I have never had an issue with them.

"Horrible customer service. Lights and fans ordered arrived broken. The wrong light bulbs came with them and they lied about delivery times and ordering,
" . I would never use this company again. Their customer service was so poor that they basically did not care about the end user at all. It took them forever to replace broken parts and deliver the right light bulbs. Failure to answer phone calls and requests for service started with the technician and then when trying to get a supervisor involved for better customer service forget it. The company does not believe in customer service and it goes up the chain of command. Just don't go there.

THE Cost of the recessed light is largly determinate on Where ,You purchase the product and the number you buy .Big Box dicount stores have products made oversea's that are less expensive than those found at Custom Bath & Kitchen Stores , but the products are often riddled with problems , missing parts , defects etc,

 

A typical light will run $ 35.00 to $ 85.00

 

However , the true cost of recessed lighting is involved in getting circuits or circuity to the switch and lighting system .In NEW construction , this matter is easily dealt with by installing circuits and   hardware during framing . Whereas , with remodeling , installing new lighting into existing spaces , requires wall & ceiling opening ,closure , repair , repainting & finishing

 

I have been involved in projects where the lighting cost but $500.00 ,,

while the installation & finishing costs exceeded $ 2500.00

Here is about the same question (for 1 fan) a while back, with answer:

http://answers.angieslist.com/how-cost-install-ceiling-fan-ceiling-light-exists-q46721.aspx

Your total cost could be from 1.5-3 times that shown in the answer, depending on how much of the wiring for the three fans he can combine - i.e. can he easily run one power circuit for all 3 fans, then just tap off that for switches and runs to the fans, are they fans only or with lights (double the wiring and switches), etc. Note the costs do NOT include drywall/panelling repair or painting to match. Also, you are going to be near the top end of the estimates, because in all probability your access is poor, and 3 fans are almost certain to require a totally new run from the breaker box.

Unless you have an open exposed-joist attic above where the fans are to go AND the top of the walls the switches will go in, you can expect substantial holes in walls and ceiling to pull the wires and fasten them - by code, you cannot just pull wires between joist and let them lie on the top of the ceiling drywall - you have to staple them to joists every few feet, so you end up with several 1-2 foot holes typically near top of the wall (to drill through top plate), near side of ceiling to grab and bend wire coming up wall, and maybe one mid-ceiling to reach in and fasten wire, then of course the two openings that are ultimately fully concealed by the switch plate and the fan mounting plate or dome.

Before you get into this project I would check with the condo management if you are allowed to do this - there are limits to how much you can modify your condo and how much you can modify or add in the way of electric circuits.

Depends a tremendous amount on access - if accessible from exposed-joist in attic above, then you might get this for about $300-500 or so for the wiring and installation, plus $200-400 for the materials and dimmer switches, plus the cost of the light fixtures themselves. Probably about $100-150 to repair ceiling if single hole for one fixture, to $200-300 if existing trough-type flourescent fixtures. Painting the repair could be $100 - 250 depending on whether he can match the patch, or has to repaint the entire ceiling to get a uniform effect - which is more common in kitchens, which usually have untextured ceilings and gloss paint. Another alternative it is have the hole patched and prime and plain paint it yourself, then cover the area with a decorative emblem or crest to avoid having to repaint the whole ceiling. Personally I would just put a compatible style fixture in its place, which you might or might not choose to use, so you avoid the cost of repairing the hole and painting entirely, as that is "lost" $.

If the kitchen/dining room ceiling is not accessible from above, then the electrician will have to tear into wall and ceilings, so installation labor might go to $400-600, and drywall reapir and painting probably to about $400-600, depending on how many holes the elecrtrician has to put in and assuming entire surface painting to get a uniform paint look on each disturbed wall or ceiling.

One possibility for savings might be low voltage lighting for some of the kithcen fixtures, which might reduce your wiring cost and number of holes if you do not have attic access.

Be careful on the dimmable LED bulbs - be aware that dimmable bulbs generally cost a lot more, and many brands don't perform well in dimming mode because they are designed to run at a constant voltage, and a lot will not dim past about 40% power before they flick out or start flickering. Some will actually fry the electronics and burn up at lower voltage. Also, there are three different types of dimmers and different bulbs need a different type dimmer switch, so you will have to be careful to always buy the right type bulb, and use all the same type bulb in a given circuit. Here is an article on the types of problmes you can have with LED dimming, even with bulbs designed to be dimmed -

As soon as they came in he immediately tried to upgrade me to an
Delmar Lighting Companies Provider Name Locked
package. I informed him I was not interested. It was ok they only had a B rating. He faked the whole thing and rigged it himself. I felt that I was conned and he scared me. I never had an electrical short before. I upgraded my package with them. They showed up on time and they did clean up but I still was not happy only because I felt that he staged the whole thing. One week later one bulb blew out and I did not bother contacting them again. I checked it myself and replaced the bulb. The guys were nice and respectful. They did a lot of good things but I did not like how he staged the short and he scared me and tried to con me into buying surge protection for my electric panel.

Receptionist informed me company would call 30 minutes before scheduled appointment on 3/17/15 that was scheduled between 2-4pm. Employees were banging on the door at 12:45 pm with no call before hand. Also wanted access to inspect my electrical box as a courtesy. Advised would think further about using this service provider.

got it done and tested the fan before he left. My Mom was quite pleased and glad that the attic fans were fixed before a fire could've started in the attic of her house. I've already asked

I was not at the house when the work was performed but the technician was able to send me pictures prior to installing the lights. The work came out good and I would recommend them.

The contractor Bill
Delmar Lighting Companies Provider Name Locked
did not give an estimate of the work after repeatedly asking him for it.
He did not return calls. Had two appointments with him and he never showed up.
A professional person would have better responsibilty if they want to stay in business.
Angie's list should never promote contractors who are not responsible.
One good thing I never paid any money up front.
