I had my panel and external service replaced. Cindy helped with scheduling and arranging for the inspection afterwards. On the day of the scheduled work, Evan arrived promptly, did a great job with the work, and answered all of my questions. Evan had also been out previously to give the quote for the work and was very thorough in his inspection and explained the reasons for all of his recommendati...

Corey and Ed were personable and polite electrical professionals. They showed up on time, worked hard and cleaned up when they were done. I received a text both mornings when they were on their way and they kept me informed as they progressed through the job. At the end, they walked me through the completion of the items on my invoice and explained the next step of having a finisher scheduled and ...

I put my home rewiring project out to bid and got the best/most comprehensive bid from Gen 3, and hired them. I paid a 30% deposit as requested and paid the balance at the end of the work on 10/26/2020. Gen 3 sent me text messages well in advance reminding me of the visit. The electrician and his assistant came at the appointed window of time. The electrician said the work would take about six hou...

Emergency AC repair service was provided very quickly on a sweltering summer day. Gen3 tech Justin identified and clearly explained the problem and then did the repair, restoring cool air to my overheated home. Excellent experience! Based on this, I called Gen3 for my fall furnace check-up. Travis did a thorough inspection, identified potential future problems and provided a clear explanation of t...

The technician, John, was very friendly. He showed me what needed to get done and what he would do. I mentioned than Gen3 would send out an electrician next week to install a new breaker He told me he was qualified to do it and he did!~ All within an hour's time. Now I can cancel the Gen3 appointment next week and save money. Thanks, John! And we have plenty of hot water now.
