Igor of Urban Electric Co. was friendly and professional, as was able to rush over a day earlier than expected (faster than any other professional electrician) to assess our urgent situation for a new tankless water heater when our old traditional tank unit died unexpectedly.
For several years it has been my vision to install a modern tankless water heater in our 1936 home, an appliance that would require significant new electrical wiring in our cramped old basement. His quote for my project was very reasonable, though his availability to work on the job wouldn't begin for another week. Ultimately we decided a week without hot water was too long to wait, so we replaced our old tank-style water heater ourselves with a new one of the same traditional type.
Now that I am not in a desperate rush to get hot water again, I still hope to be able to install the tankless unit in the coming weeks with more careful planning. I sincerely appreciated Igor's in-home evaluation, and would not hesitate to call him again when the time comes to upgrade.
