Jack was amazing! We needed circuit breakers replaced to resolve a double tap in order to sell our home, A & R electric was out quickly and repaired for us within days of calling right before the holiday. Very professional and knowledgeable.

We used Jack and his team based on a coworker's past experience with him, and they DID NOT dissappoint! They did an awesome job and did all of this work over a few different visits in the first year we were in our house. We have some more electrical to do in the house (our house was built in 1972 so lots of things to be fixed) and will definitely use them again.

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
We had Jack and his team rewire our basement, install ceiling fans/rewire the rooms so the fans would turn on with the lightswitch, install exhaust fans in the bathrooms, ground the electrical, and fix a couple of outlets shortly after we moved into our house. Replace a blown breaker.

Had A & R out to tune up my natural gas generator, which was an offer I purchased through Angie's List. The only downside was that scheduling was a bit difficult, however once we connected, I was very pleased. I forgot the name of the tech who came, but he was very nice, explained everything, and tuned up the generator. He then showed me how to test the transfer switch, and didn't leave until he t...

From the initial estimate, to answering our many questions, to the installation and follow through, Jack has been great. Jack's price was lower than all of his competitors but he gave us many local references who all had only positive things to say about Jack. On the installation day, a rainy day, Jack and his assistant worked to keep the mess outside; they were very conscious of keeping the insid...

Jack was awesome! I can't say enough about him. His communication prior to the work being done was excellent and his response times were very quick even when I know he was probably in the field. The generator was installed quickly, efficiently and more importantly cleanly. I had a quote from a different company that would have run the gas line for the generator on the outside of my house making it...

Jack did a great job both quickly installing a 16kw generac generator and also installing an exhaust fan to circulate air in my deck.  He had a great deal of expertise both with the generator and also the wiring of the fan.  Overall everything looks great and he did a great job.

Jack came out promptly as promised when we requested an estimate. A&R?s estimate was the lowest of the estimates received. Communication with A&R was very good. Three weeks before the work, they obtained the permit from the city. On the scheduled date, Jack and his associate arrived promptly at 7:30 a.m. They were pleasant and professional, as well as careful to lay down drop cloths. They worked s...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
Upgraded a 50-amp, 16-circuit fuse panel, replacing it with a 100-amp circuit breaker panel that provides space for an additional 12 circuits for future use. Replaced all the screw-in glass type fuses with circuit breakers. Corrected electrical wiring in the basement, where lights and outlets had been wired using a non-metallic electrical cable known as Romex, which is not permitted under the city building code. Replaced all of the outlets in the basement with code-compliant outlets, including GFCI outlets wherever there was risk of electrocution due to the presence of water. Performed additional work to ensure that the overall electrical system of our house was grounded properly per electrical code. Drove an exterior copper ground rod into the ground next to the electrical meter and wired the copper ground rod to the circuit breaker panel. Indoors, electrically bonded the cold-water pipe coming into our house from the city water supply and bonded our natural-gas water heater.

After a thorough due diligence, I elected to contract with A&R Services to install a Generac Generator. With an "apples to apples" comparison, Jack was far and away the most competitive and responsive. The day of the install Jack arrived with a crew at the exact commitment time of 7:30am and began to work immediately.  Jack explained the entire process - when the gas and electric would be shut off...
