My husband and I moved into our new — well, new to us, not literally new — Los Angeles home right before our first baby was born. We came from the east coast and although it was a bad time to move, we had to because of his job. Getting settled into the house and setting up the nursery in time was going to be tight, but thanks to H Electric — a licensed and bonded electrician in Los Angeles CA, everything got done on time.
The set up of the house really wasn’t ideal for me, and it was an older house. But, we really didn’t have the time to invest in finding just the right place, not with having to get settled so that my husband could get right into the flow at work and fully prepared before the baby came. So we took the house, despite my worries about an older electrical system and the way the bedrooms were set up. Some serious electrical work had to be done by a competent Los Angeles electrician before I’d feel safe about having the baby in a separate room.
We started asking around about a reputable Los Angeles electrician right away. Our realtor suggested H Electric, saying that a lot of her clients had been very happy with the quality of their home rewiring work and custom lighting projects. My husband said he’d heard about this company at work because H Electric did a lot of commercial electrical work for his company over the years. He was surprised to find out they did residential electrical work as well as pleased, because he was so confident that H Electric was a Los Angeles electrician we could trust.
The H Electric Los Angeles electrician was wonderful to work with, very helpful and very patient. I was nervous about the electrical system right from the start, because a couple of the outlets had scorch marks. They were light, but they were there. And, the lights flickered when our refrigerator kicked on. My clothes drier didn’t seem to work as well as it should, either. There were a lot of little things that made me worry, because you hear so often about house fires starting from electrical safety problems.
During our initial telephone consultation, after hearing about my concerns with the electrical system, our Los Angeles electrician suggested that I visit the H Electric’s website and read the free help section with information about electrical safety. I found useful information there that made me feel more comfortable. During our conversation, I learned about their affordable home electrical safety assessments, and we decided that should be the first step, with special attention to be given to the nursery area.
We ended up saving a lot of money by using H Electric. It turned out that instead of needing a full home rewire, we only needed some new electrical circuits and a partial rewiring. Our H Electric electrician in Los Angeles showed us exactly what needed to be done, and he didn’t try to up-sell us. He showed us which parts of the electrical system were newer and in fine condition and which parts were older and needed some new electrical rewiring.
H Electric also had some great ideas about custom lighting for the nursery, which was a big relief. However, while that was nice, the suggestion H Electric made about having hardwired smoke detectors installed into the electrical system of the house really gave me peace of mind. Our Los Angeles electrician said we should keep a battery operated one in the nursery just in case of a city wide power loss, and told me his wife also kept a carbon monoxide detector in each of their children’s rooms.
All the work our Los Angeles electrician did for us came with a lifetime guarantee, one we could believe in because H Electric has been serving this area for so many years, plus they have a excellent review on the Internet. We’ve really been happy with our H Electric experience, and this electrician in Los Angeles is absolutely going to be our choice in the future.
