  • J3 Power Electric, LLC

    "I hired Jaime to replace my electrical panel, and he did amazing work. Jaime was prompt and professional in his communications, provided me with a turn-key proposal, worked with me to install exactly what I wanted, and quoted a very reasonable price. Jaime took care of all of the county permits and inspections and provided me with everything I needed to get my projects approval from my HOA. Jaime finished the job on time and left my home in better shape than he found it. I would absolutely recommend J3 to others, and Jaime will be my first call for future electrical work."

Rudy installed a new outdoor light post for us as well as several dimmer switches and fan timers. All jobs were done in a timely manner and exceeded my expectations.

There are numerous reasons you may need the services of a skilled electrician. If you've built an addition, need upgrade outlets to include USB ports, or are looking to upgrade your electrical panel, you should get quotes from several experts to ensure the job is done safely, correctly, and for a good price. On the other hand, if you're seeing problems like flickering lights and circuits tripping frequently or you have no power to something critical like an appliance, you should find an electrician near you who can quickly get started on repairs.

In addition to being able to respond quickly in many cases, electricians familiar with the homes in your neighborhood may be able to offer advice to avoid future issues. For example, they may know that homes in your area were built at a time when households drew less power so you should upgrade your circuit breaker panel. Or they may recommend whole house surge protectors if surges are common in your area.

No matter the reason you need an electrician, here are some questions to ask before you hire.

  • Do you have a license?
  • Are you bonded and/or insured?
  • Do you offer a warranty?
  • How much will I pay for the project(s)?
  • Will you be doing the work or someone else?
  • Will you pull all necessary permits?

When comparing contractors, be sure to ask about their specialties, especially if you need help with a larger project like installing power in an addition or a commercial building or upgrading old knob and tube wiring.
