Absolute Electric LLC
5.0
Pipe burst in kitchen which flooded the electrical room below it in the basement. I called at 6:30 pm, after hours and was immediately connected with the on call electrician who stated he would arrive in 45 minutes. A few minutes later, Shaun, the owner called and said that due to the dangerous situation in our house he would come because he was closer. He arrived in about 20 minutes, inspected the panel and determined that due to water in panel, it was necessary to turn off the power. He pulled the meter from the back of the house and notified the power company. He also identified hazards in a subpanel that had been recently installed by another contractor. He provided a detailed estimate for cost of a new panel with necessary county permit. We signed the contract the next morning. And the following day work began to restore power to our house. (Sep review) Shaun and Absolute provided our family with caring, professional service in a difficult situation. A+ Highly recommended.

C.D. Williams Electric Co LLC
5.0
I came home from work one day to find a serious brownout situation in my end-unit townhouse. The odd thing was, only certain circuits were affected -- mainly on the first floor. The lights were on, but only at about half the usual output. Other devices were struggling -- like a Comcast TV set-top box was in a constant state of rebooting. Circuits on other floors were unaffected. I checked the breaker box and found nothing out of the ordinary there. I immediately suspected a power company problem and canvassed a couple of my neighbors. No problem there. I called my power company (BG&E) and they told me the problem was probably in my house and I should a call an electrician. I searched Angie's for the nearest A-rated electrician and found C.D. Williams. I was a little put-off when an telephone-answering service (live person) answered the call, but she said I would get a call from the company within five minutes. Sure enough a tech called. I described the problem; he asked a few questions, told me to disconnect any computers or other electronic equipment, and he would arrive within the hour. He was there fifty minutes later. First he checked the breaker box. He had to remove the outer metal frame to take some measurements with a meter. Then he went outside to take more measurements at the power company's meter. In a little more that 10 minutes he had determined that the problem was indeed with the power company and only they could remedy the situation. Since he was there, I questioned him about some other electrical work I was contemplating, mainly a heat lamp assembly in a second floor bathroom. He advised a proper heater instead, and did extensive research on how a circuit might be added (it could not tap into the existing circuit) and how to route the wires. In all he was there for about an hour. He charged me $195.00, their standard fee for emergency service, which I agreed to beforehand and thought was fair. When I presented him with a 10%-off coupon for first-time Angie's List customers. He said he could not honor it for emergency service. Instead he offered me an additional 10% off on my first regular service, and added wording to my coupon to that effect with his signature. A nice touch. I was thoroughly satisfied with J.D. Williams Electrical Service and intend to hire them in the future. They were responsive, punctual, professional and competent. Oh yeah. I called BG&E and told them what my electrician said. They sent a guy out and he arrived an hour later (I was a little surprised because on the phone they basically said he'll get there when he gets there) and he told me he found the problem and had dispatched a crew and "you'll probably have full power by bedtime". It was 8 o'clock. I didn't have full power until 11 AM the next day, but I'm not complaining. What I did complain to BG&E's billing office about was that I just spent $200 for a private electrician to tell me what BG&E should have known and they should offer me a credit on my bill. You know what they said? "Fuggedaboutit"

CDS Home Services

represensative came to our home and showed us the various generators that they install and service. We chose a GE emergency generator. Service personnel came out and laid out the bed for the generator and installed a platform around the generator bed. The generator was delivered and several mem came out to install the electrical connections. We choose the systems we wanted attached to the emergency power system and they were wired into the box.The gas company upgraded our gas meter and CDS worked with them to ensure connection to the generator. Inspections were completed and we love the security of have emergency power available. All service personnel were professional and knowledgeable and we were very pleased with their work and attitude.

DC-Electric
5.0
Our electricity went out late in the afternoon. After checking Angies List for an electrician that handled emergencies, we chose DC-Electric. I called and Dave reviewed our problem over the phone. He talked me through some things to make sure there really was a failure. Dave arranged to come that evening. He successfully got the switch reset and arranged to come back the next morning. The next morning he was able to replace the switch for a permanent fix. He opened the switch to see what might have gone wrong and found severe corrosion. The next day, Dave checked back to make sure everything was working. There are many good things to say about Dave and his service: his willingness to take an emergency call from a new customer; his guiding me through steps to make sure something was really broken before any charges applied; his determination to temporarily restore power until he could get the replacement part; his evaluation of the problem an discussion of a couple ways to make the repair; his recommending the less expensive solution; his prompt work; his checking back to make sure everything was still OK.

Wilcox Electric LLC
5.0
The electrician from Wilcox had to come three times to complete the work because parts had to be ordered and other reasons that were not the fault of the electrician. The electrician showed up at the time he said he would each time. He did an excellent job installing the new repairing the emergency lights that could be repaired and installing new emergency lights where needed.

Dixie Electric, Inc.
5.0
I originally called Dixie to service my old legacy emergency generator. I was impressed by their service technician/electrician, Dave, who was both knowledgeable and provided useful advice on my house wiring. At no time did he try to sell me anything or encourage me to buy new services or products that I was not interested in. He was thorough, professional, and patiently answered all my questions. Later, when I decided to upgrade my emergency generator and do some related re-wiring, I called Dixie and accepted their bid. It took a fairly long time to get appointments set to get the work completed. Dave did most of the work, but another electrician also did some of the final wiring. The quality of the work by both electricians was extremely good and they were able to re-work a few areas in my house wiring that were not what they should of been. The final appearance and placement of the generator and the appearance of the visible wiring exceeded expectations. While onsite, the Dixie electricians worked hard. The solution they delivered for some of the other wiring issues I requested to be performed worked out very well. Everything works perfectly. Although I would have liked the system to have been installed sooner, I was extremely happy with the final result. I have complete confidence in Dave's work and my discussions with the Dixie office staff, senior management, and other technicians were always professional and productive. There were no surprises between what I was promised verbally and in writing and what Dixie delivered. I would not hesitate to recommend them to neighbors, especially for projects like mine.

J & G Electric Co Inc
5.0
Over the weekend, lights throughout the house began to dim and flash on and off. I called for emergency service, and J and G called me back immediately. They arrived exactly on time, worked with shoe covers (very clean) and were highly professional and courteous. They showed me exactly where the problem was so I could see it for my own eyes (turns out it's a Pepco issue, not something I can get them to handle.) Despite spending a good amount of time figuring out the problem, the diagnostic price stayed at $29 dollars. I would highly recommend them.

KOLB ELECTRIC
5.0
Kolb was great. Person who responded to our call identified problem and gave solid info about potential cost (and need to cut into the wall). The techs who did the install were careful and worked diligently. They took care of the work site (living room) and had us back in safe operational mode within 4 hours.

FAB Electric Inc
5.0
Granted I did not have an emergency call, but my hot water heater was aged and declining. I called Fab to purchase a replacement before the HWC began to leak. They helped me select an appropriate size unit that was efficient, Energy Star qualified and within my desired price range. They accommodated my desire to complete the work on a day I had already taken off work. They arrived on time, completed the work with ease. The employees were professional, competent and neat. While I may have been able to save a little money by shopping around, I would not sacrifice the professionalism and reliability afforded by Fab.

John Nugent & Sons Inc
5.0
We had our 20 year old water heater replaced today. The installer was knowledgeable, efficient, polite, customer-friendly, and the installation was a breeze. Good price and an Angie's List coupon as a bonus! We've used Nugent and Sons for most all of our plumbing, A/C, furnace, and water heater needs in both our home and our rental property. They do excellent work whether or not it is an emergency situation. Today's was not an emergency, just necessary to keep an emergency from happening. They have, in the past, quickly repaired our A/C and then when the time came, replaced the unit completely - again in an emergency situation. They are easy to work with for scheduling and prices are still reasonable in these cases. Highly recommended overall!

4 Service Pros
5.0
Ice/water dispenser on our refrigerator door was possessed last night. Just crazy!! Water coming out all by itself and we could not stop it!! Thank goodness we were home and awake at the time!! I ran down to the basement to turn off the main water line then called 4 Service Pros, my "go to" company. Head plumber, David, was great. He came out promptly and dealt with all our crazy refrigerator issues and got us set until an appliance repair company can come out and have a look. I have dealt with 4 Service Pros on several occasions and have never been disappointed. Love their professionalism, humor, and the fact that they are available 24/7. Wish more companies were this awesome. Highest marks for these guys!!

Dave and Edgardo arrived within an hour or so (they were already taking care of another customer when I called). They replaced the burst pipe section quickly, tested it, and winterized the pipes for me. These guys are gems! I had called several plumbers prior to this (it happened about 10:30 pm) and Dave and Edgardo were the only ones that could come out even though they were very busy with other calls as well. Definitely want them back to work on the water heater as their schedule permits.

Hawkins Electric Service Inc
3.0
We called at around 4 pm and they said an electrician would be out in 1-2 hours. I called again at 6 pm to check on status and talked to their answering service, who couldn't give me information. No one called me back for 45 minutes, at which point she said that someone would come in 45 minutes. The electrician finally arrived at 8 pm, at which point he said the problem was probably with Dominion Electric Power Company, which turned out to be the case. So, I'm unhappy that it took so much longer than estimated to get an electrician to my house and they could have told me from the beginning to call Dominion instead.

Wilcox Electric LLC

Outstanding service! The owner himself - Steve Wilcox - came out on a Sunday night for an electrical outage call. Steve was there before Pepco even called back. He was professional, thorough and very personable. He took the time to walk me through the problem in the breaker box and gave me options for repairs. He fixed the problem on the spot and on top of it, we had a great conversation. I highly recommend Wilcox Electric and will use them in the future for my rental properties and for home improvement electrical issues.

During an electrical emergency you don't have time to sift through reviews to objectively pick the best local pro.

Here are a Few Tips to Help You Quickly Hire a Good Electrician:

Before You Call Any Pro Be Sure to Check:

  • It's not an area blackout - check with your local utility before calling a service expert
  • It's not a tripped circuit breaker - flip all of them off and then on again - they might have tripped and it doesn't look like it

How Much Do Electricians Cost?

  • Electricians cost between $50 to $100 per hour
  • There is probably a service fee just to come out
