How Often Does an Electrical Panel Need to Be Replaced?

The National Electric Code (NEC) provides the minimum standard for circuit panel installation and repairs in Apex, NC.

How do you know if it’s time for a new circuit panel installation? First and foremost, you should consider the age and amperage of your breaker box. Electrical panels usually last between 15 and 30 years and range from 100 to 200 amps. If your breaker box is reaching the end of its lifespan or your home is on the lower end of the amp range, you may need to upgrade the panel to fit your family’s needs. With the safety of your family being a priority, having an upgraded electrical panel will bring more peace of mind to your home.

Signs You Need a New Circuit Panel

When it comes to electrical issues, finding a solution can be complicated. Thankfully, understanding when you need to reach out to certified electricians for circuit panel installation and repairs in Apex, NC, does not have to be confusing. There are several telltale signs it’s time to change your electrical panel. Here are the most common signs that indicate you need a new circuit panel installation in your home:
  • Corrosion or rust is around the breaker box:
    Any signs of rust on your electrical panel indicate the panel has been exposed to water. You’ll need to replace the panel as soon as possible, as well as figure out how the water damage occurred so that you can protect your new panel.
  • A bad smell is coming from the breaker box:
    If you notice a burning smell near your breaker box, this is always an immediate cause for concern. A failing circuit panel can cause house fires from melted insulation and wires.
  • You experience frequent and unexplained outages:
    When your breakers keep tripping, it’s not merely a nuisance. It’s also a clear indication that something is wrong with your electrical panel. It may not be able to handle the demands from all your modern appliances and devices, or it may have faulty wiring. In either case, you’ll need professional circuit panel installers to upgrade your system.
  • Your lights keep flickering:
    Do your lights flicker when you turn on an appliance like the microwave or plug in a new device? There’s likely nothing wrong with the light itself. Rather, this is a sign that your circuit panel is outdated. Looking at the tag on the voltage box will give you a clue if it is time to call circuit panel installers for an upgrade. Older homes will usually have panels that top out at 60-100 amps. If your home is still relying on an old-fashioned panel, then it is time for an upgrade.
  • The breaker box is warm to the touch:
    An electrical panel is designed to trip whenever a circuit becomes overheated to protect your home from an electrical fire. However, if the panel is faulty, it may not be able to prevent the system from overheating. When this happens, the box itself may feel warm or hot to the touch. You’ll need a professional electrician to replace the circuit panel as soon as possible.

We had a great experience with this company, and with Chris in particular. Chris was very polite and extremely knowledgeable. He listened to our needs and gave us three quotes with different tiers of work to be performed. He even assessed our home and suggested some safety upgrades. Chris, and another technician Steve, installed three ceiling fans and rewired one outlet. Everything came out perfect. They worked quickly and neatly. Unfortunately, one fan has a manufacturer defect. Chris diagnosed it for us, suggested what we should do, and said he will install the replacement fan once we get it. We are extremely pleased with the service we received from Chris and Steve, and also the communication and updates from AstroWatt. We will definitely use them again in the future.

30Apr2024 We have used AstroWatt several times and they never disappoint. We just moved into a new home and Colby installed an EV charger and a whole house surge protector. Thank you for your professionalism and expertise!18Dec2023 - Matthew was so professional and did a great job replacing a LED light in our laundry room. We have used AstroWatt several times and everything they have provided 5 star service.9May2023 - We had 2 ceiling fans removed and new ones installed. Chris (electrician) did a wonderful job! We have used AstroWatt three times now and Chris has always been the electrician; which is nice to have the same person!!We contacted AstroWatt online late afternoon Sunday to have an EV charger installed. I received a call early Monday morning and was able to schedule an appointment for Wednesday morning. I later received a call asking if I was available today for the technician to come out which worked perfectly with my schedule. Chris (tech) and another gentleman evaluated the area and provided feedback not only for the EV charger but a general electrical review. We decided to go with the WallBox charging vs the 240 wall outlet. He was able to get one and had the whole process completed in 4 hours (which also included a whole house surge protector). Both were very professional and provided information on the various ways we could proceed. I would definitely recommend AstroWatt Electric.

I contacted Astrowatt Electric because I needed a new outlet put in. Stephen came out, on time, went throughout my home and checked all the outlets and made sure everything was as it should be. He explained what he would need to do in order to add a new outlet (and breaker). He was very thorough. He did a wonderful job(and cleaned up afterwards). I actually had him add a whole house surge protector as well. I contacted AstroWatt and chatted with Thomas beforehand, via text (which I prefer) to go over what I needed done. He was very thorough as well. I’m so glad I contacted them. I will be using them in the future for any electrical needs.

AstroWatt Electric is our go to and I would highly recommend this company and its electricians for any service you need! I’ve used their services multiple times.

We used AstroWatt to install a 30amp. The technician was efficient and friendly. They gave us a quote and were able to complete the work in the same day. They later sent a hat to my father in law after he voiced interest in one! Great customer service and we will 100% use them in the future for any electrical needs!

I highly recommend AstroWatt for your electrical needs. I plan on leasing an electric vehicle, so I researched several home chargers. I contacted AstroWatt based on their strong 5-star reviews. I spoke to Paul several times, helping me with my charger selection and scheduling of the charger once received. He was very polite and accommodating since my charger was delayed in shipping and had to reschedule the installation twice.Chris, their electrician, showed up on time and was very attentive and helpful in discussing my location options along with the costs. They even send you an email before their arrival with the photo and information of their employee so you are aware of who's coming to your home. Very nice.Chris and I found a way to minimize conduit and holes being drilled so Chris took the time and patience and accurately installed the wiring, conduit and charger within hours of arriving. He also cleaned up everywhere and answered all of my follow-up questions.I decided to get an in-home surge protector based on their recommendation, since I recently replaced my HVAC systems and refrigerator and don't want to chance them getting damaged by an electrical spike/surge.I should also mention that AstroWatt permitted the work, including scheduling of the inspection, which occurred only 3 days after the installation. Their labor has a lifetime warranty, and staff is knowledgeable and helpful but never pushy. I'll be recommending this company to friends needing electrical services.

It’s scary when you have an electrical issue and you have no experience with professionalproviders. I found AstroWatt online and contacted them around 9:00pm. I immediately got an email saying they would contact me the next morning. And they did, and it was a kind, professional whocommunicated what I could expect and set up an appointment for the next morning.Technicians called 20 minutes prior to arriving looking and acting very professionally. I explained my issue and they did their best to diagnose it and did not recommend unnecessary fixes - they were conservative in their approach and I appreciated that. They also did a safety check which gave me peace of mind. Then they installed a surge protector and my Tesla wall charger. Couldn’t be more pleased with service and price! Can’t say enough great things. Don’t hesitate to call AstroWatt, a local privately owned company.

First time customer and this company is just amazing!! From the beginning, they were very responsive and extremely professional. I needed an EV charger installed and after the first call they even sent me information about EV chargers and the installation process which was a nice addition. They text you, email you, and even send you a picture of the technician that is on the way. My tech Jacob came first day and assessed the whole situation including creating a load assessment which showed I was almost at max power capacity in my sub-panel. He then presented me with 3 options and quotes which would require upgrading my sub-panel breaker and cables. Other electrician’s I had out didn’t even fully check this, so I felt confident this company knew exactly what they were doing. Normally they can perform the work same-day, but with my situation it was requiring him to return another day. Once I decided on the best option for our situation the office contacted me and was even able to squeeze me in ahead of schedule to get this work completed.Jacob came back out and performed the work and did an amazing job. The job did take longer than expected, but he stayed late into the night to make sure the job was done and completed correctly! He is very detailed, extremely knowledgeable, and even explained a lot of the process with me to help me learn all he was doing.Jacob is a top-notch electrician, and I would highly recommend this company and will be using them in the future. Thanks for providing great overall customer service!

We had Grant come out to install some fixtures in our new home. He was on time, kept us updated on his arrival, cleaned up as he went, was courteous of our home, and most of all kept us updated on the process/ costs/ timeline as he went. We felt well informed and were so pleased with his work! We were impressed and will definitely be recommending this company to our friends!

This is without a doubt one of the best companies I have ever used. I used them a few years ago to install outside lights and timers on my home and had the same impeccable service. This time I had a few safety concerns with my outlets (Christian did a thorough assessment and even discovered my iron was using an extremely high amount of amps for the outlet it was on (enough for the whole circuit so be aware of this yourself!) and we decided to run a special circuit and outlet for peace of mind since I do a lot of ironing. Another concern was that one of my light switches wouldn’t stay flipped on so he investigated and realized the wires connecting to the outlet hadn’t been wrapped correctly (an issue likely throughout the house) and some of the wiring connecting to the outlet was damaged. I was also interested in having a whole home surge protector installed which he did as well. He answered all my questions and gave me different levels of service price points before proceeding. In the end he customized the estimate to get me to a price point in my budget which I very much appreciated. Also, he was extremely respectful of my time (in order to finish the job he called in a crew of several cheerful excellent team members at 5:30pm to help him work until 9pm). I just went about my business while they worked throughout the house and I felt completely at ease that they knew what they were doing. I rarely feel this way about a company but I do with them. I wish all businesses had this much integrity.

So happy I found AstroWatt Electric and I would recommend them for any project. Their communication / scheduling and customer care are top notch and their work is extremely clean. Chris from AstroWatt installed a whole home surge protector, exterior 240V outlet for a car charger and a dedicated 240V outlet for my home business (with a lot of conduit ran through the garage and crawl space) and the work was phenomenal. I appreciated the time spent on the quote with multiple options presented to find the best fit for me. Cheers.

Every single person involved in my transaction were STELLAR. The office team was great, Christian our estimator was incredibly meticulous (in a great way) and our installers (Adam and Ken) were superb! We had new outlets run, 3 light fixtures installed, new dedicated circuits run, code violations corrected and a few other things. Had the estimator not been as through as he was we would have missed a couple of items that were true safety hazards. Adam and Ken did a fantastic job of explaining everything they were doing and provided really great suggestions for improving functionality. You won’t regret using this company. Top notch customer service across the board!

Would recommend AstroWatt to anyone. Adam came over to our house for service and was very friendly, detail oriented, and customer centric. Communication leading up the appointment was great as well as reminder emails. They go as far as leaving an extra door mat and and ensuring they wear booties every time they enter your house. Will be using AstroWatt for any future services.

Matthew was excellent!! I originally booked the appointment to have a ceiling fan installed. I mentioned to Matthew that I will be using them again to have my bathroom light fixtures installed. I already had them on hand but I didn’t mention it because I wanted to be respectful of his time since I only booked a service for the ceiling fan. Matthew actually saw some of the lights under my Christmas tree and offered to have them put up the same day as well. He did an excellent job of installing my lights and fan. He showed me how the fan worked with the remote. He didn’t leave a mess behind!

We have used AstroWatt several times over the past 1 1/2 years and we are always pleased. Our most recent call involved a buzzing and crackling noise. The owner called us while he was out of town and told us he was escalating our job due to the nature of the issue. We very much appreciated that. Christian has always been our electrician and is very professional and knowledgeable (and he loves our dog!). We really like that they are respectful, cover shoes and vacuum up after they’ve completed their work. Some of the work they have done for us includes, installing LED lights, installing dimmer switches, installing timer switches, installing sensor on our front light post, installing surge protector, installing our new stove vent, and doing a bit of re-wiring to fix our latest issue. Boy, it sounds like we might be their best customers!! Based on our experience, we highly recommend AstroWatt Electric.

First time customer and will definitely call again. The fact that the company recognizes and offers a military discount is a plus. I had an outdoor porch light changed which is about 30’ up over the door. Finding a company that is on time, returns a phone call, follows up and provides a lifetime warranty is invaluable.

He thoroughly went through and gave us all possible options for the work we wanted done and offered other suggestions to improve our home. Took time to explain everything he did, how it worked, and wanted to ensure we were happy with the finished job. Was a bit pricier but overall well worth it- we would use them again and highly recommend.

When I started looking for an electrician for a large project to turn a shed into a pottery studio, the goal was: find someone good enough that will get the job done. I found Astrowatt from their reviews on Google-they not only "got the job done", but went ABOVE AND BEYOND all expectations.Astrowatt is what every company should strive to be. They were punctual, they were friendly, they were accommodating and professional and fast. They cared about the work they were doing, and ensuring it was done right. They offered different to choose from depending on what I wanted for my project, and were knowledgeable about what i needed for setting up a kiln and getting a pottery studio up and running.From the time I called to schedule the estimate, to the time the project was done and inspected, was less than a month. They didn't "just get the job done"-they were genuinely enjoyable to work with. I literally cannot recommend them enough.

AstroWatt Electric was able to schedule us for service in a timely manner before we did other work on our kitchen. First we saw Christian who came to our house to assess how our house was setup and he gave us a few estimates for service. Once we selected the services we wanted, we were scheduled to complete those services within a few days of the initial visit. Adam and Ken completed the work. All technicians were on time, professional, and thorough in explaining the work. We appreciate their help with updating our kitchen lighting and we’ll use them for any other electrical needs.

Christian and Adam have been absolutely fantastic & easy to work with. They were professional and super thorough in their work. They even caught a huge issue with the electric panel in our new home and immediately communicated the situation, coordinated getting permits/inspections, and expedited getting it replaced for us. Their entire team was knowledgeable, respectful with our home/cleaned up after jobs, and even hauled away our old fixtures for us. It’s been pleasure to working with them and we’ll be continuing to use them as our go-to electricians moving forward!

Only an estimate so far so I can't rate the quality or value yet. However, I was very impressed with Adam (the technician) on the first visit. He checked my issues, was obviously knowledgeable and very willing to walk me through my questions. A+ service. Will follow up after the work is done ✅

Grant did an excellent job installing Wallbox Pulsar 48A EV charger in the garage. He did a thorough job of checking the power line and supply amps to make sure it is a correct EV charger for our home. He also checked the electrical wiring in the house and offered different options for house in general. He was quick in installing the charger and also cleaned up the work area after the installation. The cost was very reasonable comparing the quality of work. He is very professional and pleasant to work with. Overall excellent work in our house.

Is it possible to give six stars? Ten? Consider it done!From last Saturday, when we lost power due to a tree branch falling on our power line, everyone at AstroWatt has been amazing. First, Tom, one of the owners, called us back on Saturday evening (when he should have been out dancing!) and talked us through what we'd need, and set up an appointment for first thing Monday morning, even though they were booked solid.Then, Chris, wonderful Chris (who plays guitar, likes tacos--which we know because AstroWatt sends out a picture and bio to customers for their technicians as they're heading over to your house), contacted us Monday morning and offered to pick up something for us from Starbucks on his way--an offer we gratefully accepted. And that was just the beginning of Chris's fabulousness! He talked us through everything we needed repaired to pass inspection and get our power back on, gave us options, and approached everything he did with an eye to doing it in the safest and most elegant way possible, including dealing with Duke Energy and arranging the inspection. Honestly, he's given new life to our almost-100-year-old-house, and we feel safer than we have in years. And he was such a delight to be with, too!Ken, who worked with Chris, was also wonderful: friendly, kind and fun. Chris and Ken left the house spotless, and we now have two gorgeous new electrical boxes (one inside and one outside) with room to expand--maybe even charge a future electric car.And finally (though only for the moment, as we'll be hiring AstroWatt again to do more work very soon and know we'll meet more people) Nathan, the technician coordinator, wrote a delightful note to us this morning about our final inspection, breaking the news--with grace, humor and wit--that one of us would have to be here all day for whenever the inspector came.We love AstroWatt and will be recommending them to everyone, as well as hiring them ourselves for our electrical needs. They are wonderful human beings who happen to offer some of the best customer service we've ever seen.

I had a great experience with this company. They installed an outlet for an EV charger in my garage and it only took about an hour. Didn't even have to turn the power off. They were professional and thorough in their explanation of the install process.

My experience with AstroWatt was the best I've ever had with a service provider! Charlie arrived right on time and was very professional. He took the time to assess our electrical system and explain any concerns without pressure to commit to the additional work. Charlie installed the ceiling fan and light ahead of schedule within just a matter of a couple hours. He even installed a bracket to hold the remote on the wall. Charlie and the AstroWatt team went above and beyond to provide excellent customer service. I will definitely work with them again!

We used AstroWatt Electric multiple times for our electric needs/ service upgrade in 2022 and car charger installation in 2023. We have been pleased with the quality of their work- service upgrade included new underground wire and installed of new electrical panel. Company was very helping in coordination Duke/inspection and installation. Employees are very polite and provide detailed estimates prior to starting. Updates were given during each project and at the end of each day, work site was cleaned up nicely We plan on using company for any future electrical needs

The company was very responsive and was very professional about giving me feedback on my project. I got a fast response, which was excellent. I thought the price quote was vey reasonable. I really liked the way I was contacted after their visit just to follow up and make sure we were happy with the visit. We decided to wait on our project at this time, but AstroWatt Electric will be first on our list in the future.

Christian is great. Having just purchased our home, we had a long wishlist. We were provided an itemized estimate so we could prioritize our needs/wants within budget. Christian and Grant then got to work, keeping us apprised of their concerns and progress. All of the work was completed in a timely manner and the work areas left clean & shiny. I highly recommend this local company. I know we will be using them again!

Chris returned to complete the job as scheduled and was as helpful and informative on all he did. Helped to fix minor other issues. And we will have him back in the future as needs arise. Completed the job as expected. Chris offered his experience solutions and spent the amount of time necessary to solve the initial problem and solved it. And provided information in solving the future needs.He did not do a selling job on anything that was not necessary. He was providing solutions and I felt they are necessary for our needs.I would highly recommend Chris for his skills and communication style. Thank you Chris.

This is my second time working with Charlie Hester to replace a ceiling fan with a light/remote. He is a very professional, neat, and a polite gentleman. Charlie was punctual and thoroughly explained the process that would take place from beginning to end. He installed my ceiling fan with care. I will definitely use AstroWatt again, as I have 1 more ceiling fan to replace. If Charlie is available, I will request him. Thank you Charlie for a pleasant experience!

Excellent local company with exceptional dispatching, communication, transparency, and service. Offered us multiple solutions but didn't try to upsell or push unnecessary services. Our tech was extremely knowledgeable and professional. It can be difficult to find reputable and fair companies who provide this great customer experience. Highly recommended for all your residential electrical needs. Outstanding!

This is my first time use AstroWatt and am pleased with their responsiveness and professionalism. Chris was very thorough and patient in diagnosing the issue. He explained to me the options and resolved the issue very fast and on quality. The price is relatively high but workmanship is very good. Thank you Chris!

We had a great experience with AstroWatt and would definitely use them again in the future! Our technician, Chris Crammer, did a thorough inspection of our electrical system because our light bulbs blew out too frequently. He offered us many different options and even put into consideration how long we plan on living here. He discovered some wiring issues with our outdoor outlets which he ended up repairing and replacing. He also installed a whole home surge protector for us. It was a really hot day but he just kept working! It was our first time using the service and we would definitely use them again! Also, they offer financing through GreenSky. Very accommodating company. Thanks again!

We were looking to install a receptacle and improved lighting in the garage and gave AstroWatt a call. Adam came out for the estimate and was thorough communicating what was possible and not possible. When we decided to install, we accepted the estimate and within a couple hours, someone reached back out and scheduled us for the following day. Installation was completed and we couldn't be happier! Highly recommended for anyone needing electrical service!

This company was great about getting me scheduled for a quote. There was clear communication from the front desk staff the whole time. Chris did our quote and was very professional and went over all of our options in detail. We did not end up going with the company only because it was a bit more expensive than anticipated to complete some of the safety suggestions. Otherwise, I’m sure the company would’ve delivered quality service work.

Chris was prompt, knowledgeable, efficient and courteous. He had done work before and was familiar with our home, and that helped him evaluate what was needed today. We would use Chris again (but Astro Watt Electric prices are a bit high!)

We had AstroWatt come out to update a panel and install a surge protector for the house. The electrician explained everything in great detail and was able to schedule the work very quickly. Absolutely perfect work and will be working with them again in the future!

It's not often you run into a company that operates the way that AstroWatt does. From the beginning, they were responsive and extremely professional. When installing an EV charger they handle the permit and inspection which is not something all companies do. I ended getting quotes from a few electrical companies and AstroWatt was the best quote. While you may be able to find cheaper if you decide to go with a handyman or smaller company the professionalism and quality of service as well as transparency pays for itself. My technician Adam was very knowledgeable and made sure I had no unanswered questions at every step of the process. I highly recommend this company and will be using them in the future. Thanks for providing great customer service!

I worked with three gentlemen at thus company as well as their scheduling team. Everyone was friendly, positive, and easy to work with. They showed up quickly, explained my issues very well along with the capacity available on my home. They installed an EV charger for us and it was extremely tidy work. They also fixed a poorly backstabbed lightswitch which was a huge headache for us.They were also super good with our 100 lb pyrenees and put me totally at ease with her being around. They tried to upsell me a little bit but that's honestly just how contractors work. They get limited facetime and they want as much work as they can get so I don't hold that against them. The work they did was phenomenal, their attitudes were good and they were prompt. I don't know what else you can ask for.Incidentally they also sent us brownies afterward and I gotta tell you that is a heavyweight move. The brownie is was solid. Ate it with chocolate milk. Would recommend.

I want to give a huge thanks to Chris, Alex and Zach from AstroWatt for coming out to upgrade our service. From the very beginning it was a great experience. With such an old house, there was a lot to consider. Chris came out to give us a quote and spent time going over all of the upgrades, options and packages. He took time to look at all of the concerns we had and was extremely thorough. We didn't have to wait long for the installation, with Alex and Zach coming out the following week. They arrived on time, and were setup and ready to go when the power company pulled up. Both guys introduced themselves, told me what to expect, and answered all of my questions along the way. After the job was complete (same day) we chatted for a bit about their work. They really do love what they do, and it shows. I wouldn't hesitate to use AstroWatt again when we do some additional upgrades down the line. Big thanks Alex and Zach, you guys are pros.

We had a great experience with Tom and Alex! We have never had an electrician as good as AstroWatt. We have used them for residential and commercial needs. They were professional and on time. When we were not satisfied with our original quote price, they were able to readjust the quote and take care of our needs with a quote we were comfortable with. They were concerned more with safety than getting our business and provided recommendations that would make our house safe. Alex (who did the electrical work) was very knowledgeable, reliable, professional, and kind. They have a customer for life with us. We would recommend them highly. You will not be disappointed.

When my dishwasher suddenly stopped working because of an electrical issue, I contacted this company based on their stellar reviews alone. Let me tell you that they absolutely did not disappoint. From the friendly service received by Crystal (sp?) on the phone, to the high-tech appointment texts, to the in-person customer service, the entire experience was top-notch. Both Tom (a co-owner, I believe) and Patrick were friendly, great at explaining detail & setting expectations, and skilled at completing the work quickly. They even wore shoe coverings and cleaned up after themselves.Having never used an electrician before, I can’t really speak to value, but the end price seemed very reasonable to me and I appreciated how multiple service tiers were offered. I now have a properly wired dishwasher, up-to-code outlets, and a whole house surge protector. I plan to only use this company for any future needs. Highly recommend!

Happy to report the 5 star ratings for Alternate Current Solutions are well deserved. Great experience every step of the process. Working with Crystal to schedule the appointments, Craig on the estimate, and Chris completing the work. It was all Customer First, on time, and as promised. Exceeded my expectations and they set a high bar for other contractors. Will definitely use them again, and would not hesitate to recommend them to others for electrical work.

Christian was fabulous! My dad and I attempted installing a chandelier with a ceiling medallion on our own and we learned the hard way it is better to get the experts involved. Christian arrived on time, was super polite, helpful in explaining what he was doing and what had gone wrong before. They were able to get someone to my home within 72 hours of me calling them so I am super appreciative of their quick work and prompt response in scheduling my appointment. Thank you for your help. I highly recommend Christian for any of your electrical needs and will be reaching back out when I want additional lights installed.

This is the best electrical company I have ever dealt with. Alex was awesome! He assessed my problem and provided me with a quote and completed the job to my satisfaction. He was very courteous and was very patient with my questions. Also, the scheduling was quick and I didn’t have wait forever for someone to be sent to address my issues.

From introduction to installation, very professional and polite. Wore their shoe covers to protect my floor without me having to ask. Went over the service to ensure I understood what to expect from the service and the pricing. The most superb service I’ve had in a long time. Installation was quick and easy. Awesome Job Christian and Wes!! Thank you !!

Matt and Wes did an outstanding job of not only replacing my entire Electrical Panel, they also were great guests, very polite and professional and even showed all my pets love to make it a peaceful visit! They were quick to fix everything, walked me through everything the did at the end and answered all my questions with ease. Even during the diagnosis, one of the owners came to my house to help assess what needed to be done and what would be the best option for me and my budget. Highly recommend ACS.

I was impressed by how responsive they were. I submitted a request form late at night and had a call from them first thing in the morning. Within the hour, they had arrived to provide an estimate. The work was completed less than 24 hours later.The service was timely, which is remarkable when so many service providers are booked months out. The crew was over-the-top kind, never mansplained to my wife (ha!), finished with their work quickly, and cleaned up thoroughly. We've had no issues with their installation, and would be likely to reach out to them for work again.

Excellent service and business! Lisa(?) was very helpful on the phone, and Tom was quick to come out and give us a reasonable quote for installing 4 ceiling fans and a few switches. Alex and Colby then did a great job with the installation. Very happy with the work! We'll be back in the future when we decide on some new light fixtures, and any other work that comes up!
