Don is the man and I give him my highest recommendation. He is easy to work with, knowledgeable, reasonable in his pricing, a real nice guy and goes above and beyond to do the job right. So far he’s hung a ceiling fan and installed low voltage landscape lighting for me. Both were done very well and within budget. I will be using his services for other projects and recommending him to friends. My only reservation in recommending him is that I’m worried he’ll be too busy when I need him! I’ve worked with a number of electricians and other contractors and Don is someone I have no doubt you will be happy you hired.

5 out of 5 stars because JOSE is incredibly knowledgeable, crafted, creative and SKILLED! After years of needing to update our aging electrical main panel and home re-wiring, we finally got it done. Finding and selecting an electrician without having any background in electrical matters, I worried about finding a professional who was knowledgeable in the field, familiar with city requirements, fair pricing, honest and delivered quality work. Researching and searching area electricians and contractors - I came across JOSE from ONE GOOD ELECTRICIAN ! From the first telephone inquiry to the final walk thru and switching on our new lights, we were completely SATISFIED and overwhelmed with gratitude. JOSE - is one heck of ONE GOOD ELECTRICIAN! He is the constant professional, extremely knowledgeable with electrical needs and requirements, practical recommendations, but also aesthetically/design wise on what 'looked' best. As someone who had little knowledge about the various ways I could layout the electrical outlets around the house, JOSE offered creative suggestions about what would work and would not work based on our family's lifestyle and living habits. JOSE, truly knows his craft with practical and creative ideas. His work ethic was admirable as he was up and under the house simply 'getting the job done' within the promised time and with quality every step of the way. It was great to find a professional who takes pride with the details of his work, dedication, trustworthy and at the end of the day making sure all that was promised was delivered. With all sincerity, One Good Electrician deserves a 5-star rating, plus some! A complete electrical panel was installed, rewiring done, recessed and under shelf lights added which truly made my house a HOME! As a woman, I felt comfortable having him and his loyal assistant in my house, for those that have that concern. Thank you JOSE for your diligence, creativity, affordability and great professional care and courtesy! Looking forward on working with you again!

Harry stayed with me until the problem was resolved. It definitely took some troubleshooting but he may the trips necessary to get it right. I went over what I had expected to be the price by about $80. However that's just me and my thinking about what services should cost. It's a trade I know a little about and depend on electricians for help.

Andy came out to give me a quote on installing a new EVSE (an electric car "charger") for me. I needed a new 40A, 240V circuit added to the house's main panel, as well as the EVSE itself mounted on the wall. His quote came in quite competitive to prices I received from non-licensed electricians and almost half the price of electricians I called or emailed from Angie's List. His assistant/main electrician Juan actually did all the work. Andy's sole contribution was running to Home Depot to pick up the correct (antiquated) circuit breaker for my house's 30-year-old GE panel and briefly discussing with Juan the scope of the work. Juan was excellent! A very friendly, knowledgeable guy. He was done with the entire project in about an hour and fifteen minutes, then we chatted for at least another half hour about various electrical things. I learned more about electrical stuff from watching him work and picking his brain on stuff like GFCI outlets and whole-house 100A->200A upgrades than I'd learned in years of home ownership. Though it was a very straight-forward project, I was really impressed by Juan's professionalism and how much he cared to do his best, instead of taking shortcuts. Would definitely recommend Andy and Juan for anyone on the fence about hiring them.

HG Electric spent four days installing new wiring during my home remodel project. After considering quotes from three local contractors I chose HG based on their experience, friendliness, and time spent estimating the job to ensure my needs would be met. The result was a clean and professional installation that meets the current code.

I cannot rave enough about the service I received today from Aaron Massella. He was prompt to communicate and willing to come to my home immediately. Here is what happened... The Problem: I had a random loss of power in one bedroom and the bathroom next it and the switch on my breaker box for that room was sluggish. I called up a couple different electricians, and I had my assistant get quotes from some other ones. They were all expensive and had sour attitudes. I then went to Thumbtack, and didn't love the first message I got (quote was expensive and vague), so I then read Aaron’s message. He sounded efficient so I called him up. On the phone, he was so friendly, so efficient, and talked me through the problem. He then gave him his rates clearly: one hour of troubleshooting rate, rate after troubleshooting, and emergency rate (service RIGHT NOW). I loved how clear, informative and friendly he was so I booked him for 8am this morning. He then showed up EXACTLY on time and got to work figuring it out, getting the facts, and educating me the whole time. I cannot emphasize enough how much I appreciate his education of what he was doing step by step. The Diagnosis: a bit of plastic broke on a mini circuit breaker, and the wire had loss connection to the switch. I have an old Zinsco breaker box so if I wanted to replace the mini, I would have had to get a whole breaker box or hunt down this obsolete part. He said I most definitely don't need to get a new breaker box - we can still use the mini because, besides the bit of plastic, it's in fantastic shape, not a danger, and just needs to be reconnected. I LOVE that he said this because I hate wasting a perfectly fine breaker box and I don't want to spend money I don't need to. What a difference from the building handy man I had come in and say I should definitely get a new one just because mine is old. In the end, with education and all, he fixed it in less than 45 minutes. He even provided an extremely detailed receipt of the work he did. I ADORE DETAILS. Last amazing thing about him, he drives a truck filled with obsolete parts for people like me with very old circuit breakers. He didn't have the one I needed, but he still has a ton. Summary: If I could, I would give Massella Electric 10 stars. I am literally in the best mood and glowing from his fantastic service. Thank you Aaron for the thorough education, reasonable price, detailed receipt, and fantastic attitude!

Carlos gave very reasonable estimate. I hired him without looking for another estimate from other electricians. He did come with me to home depot for parts for little additional $ for his time. He also installed my new electric car charger for little additional $. Work : New 14-50R receptacle, new 50A circuit breaker. Some arranging of circuit breakers in panel to make space for new breaker, wiring

I hired Hugh to paint my Living & Dining rooms. I discovered that he is an artist with a designer's eye! He helped me select a classic color and the rooms look beautiful! Being experienced in the business, he helped me organize my projects and recommended an outstanding Electrician & Carpenter team who installed recessed lighting, hardwood floors, crown moulding and baseboards. In addition, he has painted my kitchen & bathroom, transforming their appearance! I am so pleased with his work! He pays attention to detail and insures that jobs are done right the first time! He is trustworthy and demonstrated leadership qualities when the teams were coordinating their work. Hugh is also a Handyman and I have a few more projects I'd like completed around the house. Of course he'll be the one I hire! His prices are very fair for the quality of work.

Had Clay wire in a master breaker and a sub panel. Was very knowledgeable and up front. Gave me several options and ideas, and then the associated price. Did not try to sell me on an option, let me decide what was best for my application. Was very patient and allowed me to ask questions. Highly recommended and if i need an electrician, ill call him again.

Everything about this contractor is great! Taylor installed 2 TVs (mounted on wall), re-wired and organized all wiring and media boxes, performed electrical work on lighting fixtures, provided troubleshooting where needed, and gave a full explanation on all services completed. Taylor not only showed up on time and was fully prepared, but he is highly professional and did the job fantastically with no mess afterwards! Definitely calling BCS again!
