Work Description: Determine reason for no current at an outlet in kitchen. Having been fairly knowledgeable of home electricity, I had already eliminated every reason I remembered to check for the reason, but to no avail. Being 72, and that many years have passed since my active application of what I knew, I was very embarrassed when he located 2 GFIs outlets in the circuit that I was having trouble with. He re-set one of them, and I was back in business.
Comments: Although I had agreed to the quoted price, I feel that the electrician should have had a little authority to make an adjustment to the quoted price. He was in the home for less than an hour, and the labor actually performed minimal, to say the least. He should have been able to call his office to advise them of the simplicity of the work involved, and suggest an adjustment to the price quoted. I AGREED TO THE QUOTE BEFORE THE ELECTRICIAN ARRIVED, SO THAT WAS MY CALL. I am satisfied with everything else.

Work Description: Installed 220 plug in for electric cook stove, but the huge job was running the wire from the electrical box to the room where the stove was. (through the ceiling, etc.)
Comments: The owner and his assistant were both very courteous, careful, clean and prompt. I highly recommend them. Their price was my best estimate.

Review by: Tom N
Work Description: Ran a new 20A dedicated circuit for over the range microwave.
Comments: Would rate 99% of the work as exceeding expectations. One minor nit - didn't clean up wood shavings after drilling through the joist. Price changed several times for "added" work and since I thought it was high to begin with, was a little annoyed. Nice work otherwise.
Review by: Scott from Saint Michael MN
Work Description: Tested circuits that we were having power issues and located problem outlet. Replaced outlet to fix problem, and presented options to fix the problem from happening again. We will look at these options and have the necessary work done at a later date. We were pleased with the professionalism of the tech. and the quick response. It was a matter of minutes from the time I sent the email, to having someone call me. It was 20 minutes later we had the tech in our home correcting the power issue we were having.

Review by: Brett Brett Klooster from Saint Louis Park MN
Work Description: Changing a hard-wired oven connector to a plug-in connector.
Comments: I appreciated the ability of them to be able to get a technician out there same day so that I could hook up my new oven. I took a day off work to receive the oven and didn't want to take another day to wait for an electrician. I was very happy with the speed of which they were able to service me. I was pushed back ETA-wise until late evening which was originally early in the afternoon, but the fact that they could get to me same-day was still a lot better than others quoted. I paid $200 dollars for 1 hour of work. However, the technician was nice enough to hook up the new connector and help me install the new oven and move out the old one. However, due to the way that the outlet plug was placed they had to tape it to the floor which wasn't an ideal situation. However, it's a plug to an oven that no one will see until they put in a new one so I can't really dock them much on it. I would say overall it was a good experience, I wish it was a little cheaper but I feel that the service was very prompt and quality of the service was high.

Review by: Kim Olson Olson from Minneapolis MN
Work Description: Upgrading an old electrical panel with breakers.
Comments: I received a call to set up an estimate only a few minutes after sending the email requesting one. Nick came out and gave me a few options, then I called a few days later after receiving several other estimates and choosing Affordable Electric. The work was done quickly and well the only mix up was a plug in that wasn't grounded correctly and once it was noticed they came out within a few days to fix it. Overall it was a pleasant experience.
