Work Description: New service feed and 100 amp panel for old vacant house and complete install with new breakers.Comments: Called Paul via a friend recommendation and his communication is prompt and excellent both initially and throughout the job. Work completed in very timely manner and all works well so far. Electrical inspector said; "Good job - beautiful install". Highly recommend Paul and crew.
Work Description: Overhead lights went out after a light was shorted out and would not come back on. The breaker was reset and the lights still would not come on. We knew that there was probably an open wire somewhere but could not find it.Comments: I called and left a message with Price Light and was contacted by Paul within 5-10 minutes to schedule service. An electrician was here early the next morning and problem was fixed shortly after. I thought the price was amazingly fair and my husband and I are very pleased and so glad that we are finally out of the dark. Will highly recommend this company to all of our friends and relatives
Work Description: Installing whole house Surge protectors to various residents in this condo. He and his installer made sure the correct breaker was installed as there are several types of installs. They worked professionally and well. They fully explained the install and how it would function.Comments: This is the first this company was used and I am pleased with the results and workmanship.
Work Description: Bad circuit breaker main switch.Comments: Paul of Price Light arrived the day I called. He quickly diagnosed the problem - half of main circuit breaker switch was not functioning - and temporarily fixed the problem with a 60 amp switch that he had on hand until he could return with a new 100 amp. I highly recommend Price Light - after many calls to my regular electrician, and other companies, Paul was the first to respond and did an excellent job.
Work Description: Replace main feed breaker. Inspected and tightened all other breakers and connections. Replaced two marginal breakers, separating service area I=within the house. All work requested by me.Comments: Prompt, excellent service at a reasonable price. Paul was very informative and didn't try and sell me something I didn't need. We use him again. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.
Work Description: They called promptly to see about coming out to solve the problem. He suggested first that we call the electric company to see if it is an outside connection. We did and didn't need the electrician at all.Comments: He did not have to suggest the electric company first. He could have come out looked around charged us for the trip and then told us to call the electric company. I will certainly call them again.

Work Description: I had a problem with one of my breakers that kept tripping and the front half of my house was losing electricity.Comments: Paul from Price electric was very professional. He asked the right questions and genuinely seemed to want to diagnose and fix the problem. He figured out that a line I have that runs out to a light pole in front of the house was causing the issue. I had replaced a sidewalk about 7 months ago and had to have the line respliced after hitting it when I was digging out for the sidewalk, he asked me if the splice had been covered with a water proof container. He was able to figure out that with the recent rain we've had that the splice in the line had gotten wet which caused a short in the line, so he disconnected that line and gave me other options for outside lighting that I could do. I was also concerned about my electric panel because I was previously told by another contractor that it will need replaced. Paul checked it out and advised me that it was fine and that there was nothing wrong with it. Very honest and professional and I will definitely call him for any future work that I may need.
Work Description: We lost electricity to HALF of our house.Comments: I called Price and they promptly returned my call. They arrived shortly thereafter. They were professional, friendly and determined the cause of our problem quickly....trouble at the pole. I would HIGHLY recommend this company!!!
Work Description: We lost electricity in HALF of our houseComments: We used your website to find an electrician. Price light called us in a very short time.
We lost electricity in HALF of our house.....Price came and inspected our electrical box, checked connection outside and finally told us it was the pole outside.
These gentlemen were so polite, professional and friendly. They called when on their way.....which was a very short time, and we're extremely fair in what they charged us.
I would recommend VERY HIGHLY hiring this company for absolutely any electrical problem!
Also, we thank you for this great website! We would have no hesitation in accessing it for anything.

Work Description: I had an odd breakdown of outlets and switches that lasted for several days. But the night before Price was to come, the problem disappered. I asked the techniciaon (Ron) to check things out anyway and all was well, so I was relieved. He was quite thorough and easy to work with.Comments: This was over the holidays, so I was leary of getting any help at all. Price showed up at 9:00 A.M the day after I called as promised.
Work Description: Half the electric in my house went out and I couldn't figure out why.

Work Description: Update our electrical service from 100-200, install several outlets indoors and out, installs outlets for two kilns.Comments: I highly recommend this company for any electrical work needed. We updated our service and had several outlets installed (replaced as needed), both indoors and out. Paul has a great work ethic and his fees reasonable. He kept me informed about everything he did and if I had any questions or concerns he addressed them immediately. If Paul noticed something that did not look right he corrected it. I appreciated his thoroughness and thoughtfulness and would have him return to do any other electrical work needed. Definitely a five star company!
