Tommy Gidman was my sales/quote person. He was great to work with. Very friendly and patient. He did a terrific job explaining to me how the system would be installed and how it would work once it was complete. He was upfront about when they could do the work since they were experiencing parts shipping delays due to Covid-19. Ashpaugh called and setup the install appointment once they received all the necessary parts. Technician arrived on time and did high quality work and left the project in a clean/organized manner. I would recommend Ashpaugh Electric to my friends.

The installers were great. Friendly, cleaned up after themselves and checked everything they could I cannot blame Dowdy for this, but we had an outage after the install but before the gas company came out to upsize the meter. We sat in the dark for about 4 hours, with a nice new generator that could not run.

Bud the sales person is very knowledgeable and he worked with me on pricing, since I am a do-it-yourself type person and I poured my own concrete slab and dug the trench for the underground gas and electric lines. The installers were very courteous and Kenny was very helpful with walking me through the generator and how it works, etc. The installers cleaned-up after themselves and wore booties when coming into the house after being out in the yard (mud from a rain). They run the lines properly and very little paint touch-up on the outside of my home. Additionally, I had Kenny worked on another electrical item, while he was there and he stayed way past 5pm to accomodate me. I am very happy with my choice with Dowdy doing the install.

Mr. Dowdy himself came out and did an inspection to prepare a quote and scope of work for me to get an automatic natural gas generator. He assessed my needs, explained everything, and explained that the gas company would have to install some regulators because of the age (1963) of my house. Staff at Dowdy helped to co-ordinate the gas company role. On the designated day, they came out, installed the generator and all of the necessary equipment, installed the transfer switch and hooked it up to my electrical panel and tested it. They then explained some of the basic operation to me. I have already needed it twice, and it worked like a charm. About 8-10 seconds goes by, and then boom--your lights and appliances come back on. When the power comes back, it automatically switches back over seamlessly without interruption.

It took over 4 months to get it installed and then installation took 5 days, instead of two. All seemed to go well, and it did work when we needed it. Two weeks ago, I tried to turn on the gas fire. No gas. Called Clif but he was too busy to come out, so I called another company, who sent someone today. He discovered the the valve had been taped closed, so the fireplace would have been useless. I was never told of this. Then this service man said the gas line was not installed properly - but we could live with it, but there were no pressure gauges for gas appliances, and that would have to be disclosed if we sold the house. He installed those. I am now $900 poorer. In addition, the wiring that was done is not according to code for the second electrical panel and will have to be redone. That will be even more. Very scary.

I wrote a review back in 2012 when Steve got my generator up and running after sitting idle for an undetermined time of at least four years. He has serviced my generator every 6-12 months ever since and I have always been pleased. After a recent outage when the generator did not engage, I was able to do a self-inspection based on information Steve has taught me over the years. I found that the battery was not making positive connection and once that was corrected, the generator fired right up. I also noticed that the battery was nearly five years old and being a standard lead-acid battery, I knew its life was short. I let Steve know of the situation, and he agreed the battery needed to be replaced. I also told him that I have been unemployed for a time as I am trying to start my own business. He was gracious enough to do what he could to keep costs down. Based on our experience, my wife and I will not have a house without a generator and if we stay within the area, Steve will be the one who installs and/or services our equipment.

Steve was very knowledgeable and patient with our questions throughout the process. He installed the pad before the winter freeze so it would be ready once the unit arrived. He was willing to work with an electrician we chose and modified his quote to accommodate that work. The 2011 east coast snow storm and power outages caused a significant factory delay in shipping our generator. Steve kept in routine contact with the factory attempting to expedite the shipment. He also kept us informed of the status. When the generator arrived, Steve came out on a Saturday to inspect the unit and place it on the pad. He seamlessly coordinated the contractors and had the unit commissioned with in a couple of days. When we had a post install question, Steve promptly came out to check that the unit was functioning correctly. He did not charge us for that call. During the entire process, Steve was prompt when answering emails and phone calls. He was professional, courteous and accommodating. Overall we are very pleased with the generator and the installation experience. We would recommend STK to anyone interested in purchasing a whole house generator.

They did a great job, came out when they said they would. I don't use their yearly maintenance schedule but they did a great job - the maintenance just seemed to be priced rather high. They also came out when I had my detached garage insulated and installed electrical plugs, wires, and switches for me.

Apex Design Build

I initially purchased and Angie's list Big deal for 2 hours of electrical labor for $99. The ad stated it was for labor only but I bought it anyway knowing that I would have the cost of materials to add to the deal. I was contacted by Apex's owner David Wilson and he informed me that this Big Deal was labor only and that he would need to have someone come out and do an estimate for a bid contract which would include materials. He said he would apply what I had already paid toward the work. What he didn't say was that he would apply it at the regular labor rate so that I would only get 1 hour's worth of labor when I expected 2 for that credit, but more to follow on that point. I accepted his bid estimate for installing the generator connection to the house electric panel based on his technician's (Jason) estimate that it would probably take 4 hours to complete the job due to having to drill through masonry and cut some drywall. The bid estimate was $442 for material and labor. Unfortunately the bad weather in the Indianapolis area created difficulties for the Apex team getting to the house due to too much snow and ice. After a second power outage my wife and I decided to invest in a whole house generator instead so I emailed David and informed him that we wanted the generator connection done to the barn electrical panel instead of the house panel. I informed him that this should be an easier job that would take less time since the barn was open access and no drilling or cutting was required. At this point the original bid estimate was no longer valid since the scope of the job had changed, but he did not indicate he was going to reduce the price for the work. Knowing that I had 2 hours of labor pre-paid with the Big Deal I had anticipated only paying for the material cost when the work was done. Jason and Mike were the electrical team who came to do the work. Jason was the one who did the initial estimate for the work when we were thinking about installing it on the house. These guys were totally professional and did a great job and these ratings should not reflect on them. They arrived around 2:15 PM and were finished with the installation at approximately 4:20 PM, basically 2 hours of labor. Overall I was very pleased with the job and wished I had done it before all the bad weather. I initially provided a stellar report on this website based on the great work of Jason and Mike. I am now revising this report based on my less than satisfactory dealings with David, the owner after receiving the an invoice for $366 ($465 - $99 pre-paid). After getting the invoice I sent David an email asking him to call me since I had questions about how much it was given the labor time should have been zero based on my pre-paid Big Deal so I was only expecting material costs. This is when the trouble began with him. He sent a reply to my email stating several things as justification for the extra labor costs that were completely false. First he said the team had to make a trip back to pick up extra wire since the original job only called for 5 ft and the new one took 18 ft. I called him on this because the team had the wire when they got here and before they arrived they didn't even know how much would be needed. He next said the team had to wait on me for an hour because I was on a conference call and couldn't tell them where to put the generator plug. Once again I called his bluff because I knew my wife had let them into the barn and they were in the process of installing the interlock switch when I arrived to show them the location of the plug. He then proceeded to say that he had to charge extra labor because they had gotten stuck on the previous trip out and he had to pay them for their time. Actually, I missed a client call due to having to help get them unstuck from the snow in my drive which several other cars, including my own had been able to navigate. Even if this had been the case that he had to charge me, he never informed me of this ahead of time or I would have carried the electricians and their gear on up to the house in my own truck. The last straw came when he said that he had to charge me labor for ordering the materials himself since I didn't have them already. As I thought about this I agreed he might have a point until I took time to research the average cost of the items used on this project and found that even taking time to go out to the barn to ensure I had the correct material descriptions, it took me less than 30 minutes to put together an entire materials order (and I could get it all delivered with no shipping charge). Based on this little exercise, and my conversation with Jason the electrician afterward, I found out that only two of the items had to be ordered (the interlock kit and the plug box) which should have taken even less time, and I found David had over-estimated the material cost on the original bid by roughly $50 dollars. The rest of the story is that I received a call from Jason the electrician saying David was not going to pay him until I paid David. This is just one more example of not only poor leadership on David's part, but also is a good indication of his lack of character. As a result, I paid the invoice as written and decided to use the power of Angie's List to get the word out to be careful when purchasing services from Apex. If you need a good electrician go to Jason direct. If you see a Big Deal from Apex buy it with extreme caution since it will end up costing you much more than you bargained for in the beginning. I will not recommend Apex to anyone and while I had asked Jason about other services they provide based on his excellent work, I will now take my remaining business elsewhere. For the additional $200 he got out of me for this project, he is losing the potential for several thousand more in planned renovations we are doing this year and next. The nice thing about the Big Deals is that you get to try before you REALLY buy. I guess the silver lining is it worked in this case since we now know to stay away from Apex.

Recent Review: Chris was amazing. I only had planned on getting the tune up done today. I mentioned the fact the generator was sitting too low, but figured he would just give me some suggestions. Instead, he comes with a pad for it to sit on, eliminating the problem. He spent time answering all my questions, many of which I am sure were stupid. He suggested improvements to better utilize the generator. He will be back in a few weeks making those improvements. Great, great experience!
