Reviews for Generator Installation in Long Beach

Intelectric, Inc.
5.0
After the most recent extended power outage I decided that I wanted (actually, needed) to be able to hook an emergency generator to my home. Based on their close proximity to where I live and the reviews I read on Angie's List I decided on Intelectric. I called and made an appointment with a two hour window for them to come out and give me a bid. Mitch Weiner, the president of the company, arrived right at the end of the window. I explained what I wanted, and what appliances, devices, lights, etc. that I wanted to be able to use during an outage. We went around and added up the wattage, verified that the generator I had purchased could carry the load, and decided that a six circuit transfer switch would do the job. After seeing the existing main service panel Mitch suggested that I do a Google search on the manufacturer of the panel. It turned out that the panel has a long and known history of breakers not always tripping when they should, sometimes resulting in electrical fires. I decided on my own, with no up-sell pressure from Mitch or anyone at Intelectric, to have a new main panel installed as well. The electrician, Jose, showed up on the day work was scheduled to begin right on time. Throughout the project, Jose (and his helper Mario) showed up as scheduled. On the few occasions when they were running late Lorraine from the office kept me informed on what was going on. They gave us at least an hour's notice when they had to turn off the power, and always cleaned up at the end of each day. The work was done professionally and passed city inspection with no problems. Working with Intelectric was a pleasure from start to finish. I will not hesitate to call them again should I need an electrician in the future.

Everything about this job rates at least an A+. Jeff has to be the most professional and accommodating contractor I've ever dealt with. He was quick to get back to us every time there was a question or concern. He even dug the trench for the gas pipe himself so the plumber could save a little on his bill and didn't add anything to his own bill. He spent all the time needed to explain everything he was doing and provided a detailed explanation of the function and operation of the generator when he was finished. I would absolutely not hesitate to use (or recommend) Jeff for any electrical needs in the future.

First, Nick installed our new generator and gave us a lesson. Then, about a month later, Chris performed a home safety inspection, & although the service was free, things were found that we wanted to be corrected. Chris also gave us a second lesson on the gernerator.

High Volt Electric

High Volt Electric (lic 963370) recently installed a Generac standby electrical generator at my home. They did a great job. Owner Karo Gyonjyan made sure that the infrastructure was installed well (including subcontracted plumbing for the natural gas connection), that our solar-panel system was safely accommodated and that local permit and manufacturer requirements were fully satisfied. Tradesmen always showed up as scheduled with a can-do attitude, worked adeptly and maintained a clean and orderly worksite. Projects at older homes always include a surprise or two and this one was no exception, yet Karo addressed each to my full satisfaction. A standby generator is integrated into a home's electrical system and ready to automatically fire-up following an electrical service interruption. Having one installed seemed prudent given recent severe weather, a vintage local grid and an ongoing nuclear power plant shutdown. Researching generator technology and brands identified Generac products (made in the USA) as the apparent industry standard. Unfortunately, each of the retail dealer/contractors listed for SoCal on the Company's website whom I contacted charged $125 upfront for an estimate -- except for one who required a very large down-payment (well in excess of what his state contractor's license allowed). Each was haughty about their terms and surprised when I objected. Fortunately, a few web searches of local electrical contractors with generator experience identified several solid hits. High Volt stood out because of both their generator experience and extensive success with commercial work of similar scope. And among bidding contractors, Karo seemed to have the best grasp of the project's work demands, challenges and permit requirements. His terms were reasonable, he always conducted himself in a professional manner and he didn't let me down. What more could you ask of a contractor? I look forward to working with High Volt and plumbing subcontractor Drainmaster LA (Drainmasterla.com lic #947437) in the future.

Today’s date is 11/22/19. I checked the mail because Christina from LT generators called me and told me to go check the mail that there would be $1000 check in it and a letter of apology written by Lenny the owner himself. Despite the company's promise to return my deposit, all I received from them was a torn refund check. There was no letter of apology, and it’s clear now that these people are intentionally screwing with me and not only are they not sorry for what they have done but they have no intention of returning my deposit.

I dealt directly with Lenny Tedeski, who came to my house. When he was done looking around after about 45 minutes he gave me an estimate for $36,000 and change to install a generator and an extra $9000 and change for to 120 gallon propane tanks installed. I gave him $1000 deposit and he promised that me it would be done in two weeks. The next day after they cashed the deposit check someone called the mother of my children and told her it was going to be 4 to 6 weeks but that they would try to do us a favor and get it done in three. I told them that that didn't work for me that I didn't negotiate the price which I believed to to have been grossly inflated and so I'm not going to negotiate the time that was promised. Instead of calling me to work it out or at the very least apologize and return the deposit. Lenny never bothered to apologize or offer to work it out BUT kept the deposit.... I checked the unit that they were selling me a 27 kW Generac generator, on Generac's website is $10,999. Then they needed another part (for sale at Home Depot for $2645 that was a 400 amp 120/240 V single phase no breaker) And to load shell modules for 120 bucks each. That's under 14 grand. They charged me over $36,000 for this? 22 grand to install a generator? Dealing with Another company I was told by the owner that a 27 kW generator is commercial grade and that 22 kW generators are used for 10,000 square-foot homes... I have a 3500 square-foot home, so I guess I was upsold in addition to the price gouging because evidently that wasn't enough. The difference in the two units was $5000. Oh and remember the $9000 for the two 120 gallon propane tanks? $419 each... That's for 200 gallon propane tanks so I assume 120 gallon propane tanks will be cheaper. Does it really cost $8000 to install two propane tanks? I would stay away from these folks.

I purchased a Generac Guardian 6244 Generator for my residence to support a home-based business in the event of an outage. Being a sizable investment, I researched many options, received bids from several companies, and ultimately chose LA Generators. Kevin and his team were very professional from start to finish. Kevin personally came out to give me the bid and inspect my property to make sure the generator I had in mind was appropriate for the situation. He also thoroughly explained the process, was able to arrange for the gas line and concrete work that my particular situation required, and secured the necessary permits from the county. All of the work was performed flawlessly, on budget, and on schedule. I now have a quality backup system in place that has added value to my home as well as my peace of mind. I can even help neighbors power their refrigerators, recharge their cell phones, etc. in the event of an emergency. No more worrying about spoiled food, lack of phone or Internet service, a disabled security system, or any of the numerous other things that we don't always think about UNTIL the power goes out. Now when I hear the news reporting an outage in my area I rest easy knowing a Guardian is protecting my home and business! Thanks, Kevin and Generac!

I have used this electric company now three times in the past 6 months. Each time they have been professional and performed well completing all tasks assigned. Having a good experience with two previous jobs I was willing to try this more involved home electrical project. They allowed me to upgrade the back up generator project from the special promotion and accomplished the work as promised. They were courteous, provided quality workmaship, were patient when necessary and cleaned up after themselves showing respect for my home. They appear to have many electricians at different levels of expertise and coordinate well depending on complexity of the job. I am happy to recommend them and will use their services again as needed in the future.

Went well. Tom and assistant did in two visits and they were clean and very professional. Called if they were going to be late and explained what they were doing and how to use the new ceiling fan and generator hookup. I will call for all future electrical issues going forward. Will recommend to others.
