Technician repaired issue with generator. However, apparently, since I wore a mask when he came into my house to test it (as I should during a freaking pandemic), that makes me "scared" of COVID. The unprofessional little *@?# doesn't know my situation of having to take care of elderly in-laws, which means I have to be extra careful. He wrote on the work order to send me the bill because I was "sc...

Had made plans with an employee who did previous electrical work to have a ceiling mounted garage heater installed at my home. I told him I'd call them when the heater arrived at my home. When it arrived, I called them and told the employee who answered the phone that the heater had arrived. He said he'd tell the person in charge of scheduling and they'd call me to make an appointment for installa...

We were never informed of the dissatisfaction of service. The unit was installed in 2012 and the customer requested annual service to be done every other year. Upon each maintenance, the technician performed the required tests and insured the unit was operational at that time. Portman Electric takes pride in our service and customer satisfaction. We would have done everything possible to rectify t...

I had a challenge finding an electrician to do this type of work (structured cabling) for a reasonable price. Portman electric charged time and materials, with me providing the majority of the materials. This ended up being far cheaper than other places charging by the job or per drop. I am happy with the job they did. They were professional and got the wires pulled quickly. There was one person w...

I needed another electrician to hook up my pool heat pump, and people I knew recommended Portman. I called, and electrician came in the same day to review the work. He had never done a pool heat pump before, but he was knowledgeable enough to know exactly what he needed to do. He jumped right in, not to the pool it was still cold, and started the internal wiring to get set up. He came back about a...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
We bought a heat pump for our pool and needed a new breaker, line run from the breaker box to outside, a wall box outside and a line run to the heater.
