    I had H.O. Services come to my home to resolve my electrical issue. I had no power and needed help right away. The technicians actually came out that same day. They were very knowledgeable and very professional. They told me the price before starting the work and it was a little high. However the amount of service I received was great! I highly recommend this company to anyone looking for service. I will definitely use H.O. Services when I have an issue.
