Fast, prompt and informative service. Electrician took the time not only to explain why something wasn't working, but how he was fixing it. He arrived exactly on time and resolved all issues quickly and professionally. I would absolutely use

, the electrician from
Washington Electricians Provider Name Locked
was wonderful. I will never use anyone else again from
Washington Electricians Provider Name Locked
.
He analyzed the problem with connections outside and fixed the cable and two electric outlets. I had been told there were real problems and it would take considerable time to fix as there were damaged wires due to rodent issues. (Why would an animal chew electrical wires and get electrocuted?) He looked and said there were no rodent issues. Another electrician told me my low light/fan levels on a ceiling fan/light meant it needed to be replaced. He found that the dimmer switch was malfunctioning and he fixed it in a nanosecond. I took the new fixture back and saved over $200.

The electrician was on time and did the work efficiently. I had some questions about how the wiring worked, and he helpfully answered my questions. It was a pretty straightforward job and everything was smooth from start to finish. I bought my own smoke alarm/CO detector, so I paid only for labor. I am very happy with the services performed.

's had some scheduling difficulties, so after a no-show, they rescheduled to stop by my condo "after noon" on the next Wednesday.
I asked for their "smartest electrician" because the switch box was a Gordian Knot of wires that had been tangled by the previous condo owner.
An electrician named

arrived, quickly identified the problem, and in a jiffy rewired the 3-gang switch box so that my kitchen lights worked perfectly. He was smart, experienced, highly-professional and knowledgeable. I was ecstatic to finally get the lights working right.

's to be sure they get your phone, address and appt time correct; it's well worth the effort to get a top-notch electrician on the job.

One thing I do not understand about electricians (all I have encountered so far) is they rely on the client to purchase the parts needed, even when the client does not have the technical knowledge to purchase the correct parts.
Washington Electricians Provider Name Locked
and a colleague (with a
Washington Electricians Provider Name Locked
British accent) came for two relatively
Washington Electricians Provider Name Locked
electrical items, but I was informed that they couldn't install the dimmer in the bathroom because I hadn't purchased the dimmer switch in advance. I hadn't realized this was expected of me.
Washington Electricians Provider Name Locked
recommended that I go to Home Depot to purchase the dimmer switch because prices there are significantly less expensive than at the neighborhood hardware store. I went to Home Depot - where the aisle with dimmers, swtiches, plates, etc. is a hot mess, a jumble with items in the wrong place and tons of missing stock - and couldn't find the kind of dimmer switch I wanted. I texted
Washington Electricians Provider Name Locked
a photo of the best dimmer switch I could find and he immediately texted back that this would work. When he came for our next appointment, I informed
Washington Electricians Provider Name Locked
this really wasn't the dimmer I wanted. In my opinion,
Washington Electricians Provider Name Locked
WENT ABOVE THE CALL OF DUTY BY WALKING WITH ME SEVERAL BLOCKS ON A HOT SUMMER DAY TO THE LOCAL HARDWARE STORE AND CONFIRMING THAT THE KIND OF DIMMER I WANTED (which this store, unlike Home Depot, had in stock) WOULD WORK. I was a much happier customer having the kind of dimmer I wanted installed, and I appreciate that
Washington Electricians Provider Name Locked
was willing to go the extra mile (literally and figuratively) to make this happen.
Post Script: I decided to install a dimmer in my bathroom because I had read in books about energy efficiency that this is a cost-saving measure. However, after the dimmer was installed, my bathroom was too dark when the dimmer switch was up as high as it could go. I asked
Washington Electricians Provider Name Locked
about this, and he advised me to change out the bulbs with brighter bulbs. This worked. I learned through some follow up research that it's normal to
Washington Electricians Provider Name Locked
brightness with dimmer switches compared with regular on/off light switches. I suspect that I'm not achieving an energy savings because I have to use higher wattage bulbs. Even if so, though, dimmer switches do give more control. Sometimes in a bathroom you want full brightness so you can see clearly and other times, such as in the middle of the night, you might want the least amount of light needed.

It went great! They were in and out in about 20 minutes. Kind, knowledgeable, and professional, they expertly installed our fan and also gave us some ideas about increasing our air conditioning efficiency. This project would have cost me 3+ hours plus a little bit of my sanity; glad I went with the pros.

Horn arrived on time and had my motion detector up and and ready within an hour. I was impressed by his professionalism and attitude. The light works great, the price was right and the attitude of the electrician was fantastic! Will definitely use MFE for my future electrical needs.
Thanks!

provided a detailed and timely estimate for the work. The
Washington Electricians Provider Name Locked
team (Fatmir and
Washington Electricians Provider Name Locked
) were personable, knowledgeable,
punctual and reliable. The work was completed on-time (3-week job) and
on-budget. Despite being a challenging, and sometimes frustrating job
(figuring out 100-year old circuits is no walk in the park!), Fatmir and
Washington Electricians Provider Name Locked
remained cheerful and always presented a can-do attitude. I have
great confidence in the quality of their work.

The technicians were great (
Washington Electricians Provider Name Locked
&
Washington Electricians Provider Name Locked
) and they worked quickly and professionally to install all lighting fixtures as the charge is based on the 1/4 hour. The tall ladder fee of $159.00 was a bit excessive, but I was very pleased with the work.

We were very impressed with the service received in spite of the fact that the fixtures we provided to the electrician (ordered from Amazon) turned out to have faults that complicated installation. In fact,
Washington Electricians Provider Name Locked
Electric came back when we encountered a problem and solved the problem even though it was inherent in the fixture not in their work. We were charged a very nominal additional fee. So, our purchase of the "deal" was truly an excellent deal and we will use
Washington Electricians Provider Name Locked
Electric again, for sure.
