New Office Construction

Oris and his team really do understand and execute the concept of excellent customer service. They LISTEN, follow-up promptly, be there when they say they will be there and gladly answer questions. They offer their expertise and suitable recommendations. They are competitive and honest. I would definitely recommend them.

Installation of new potlights

Based on reviews on Homestars, I had contacted another highly rated electrical company to provide a quote on potlight installation. After 2 emails quotation requests and 2 calls with no return messages, I contacted Hotwire and I'm glad I did. Oris, Chris and Grant did an excellent job - they showed up on time, were very personable and finished the work and cleaned up efficiently. Oris explained why our previous lights didn't work and made recommendations about LED bulbs in the future. At the office, Hannah was very personable and efficient. It was a pleasure doing business with this company and I would recommend them without hesitation.

Outdoor Pot light installation

I often turn to for company reviews and referrals and HotWire was no exception. The perfect 10/10 score stands true and I may as well join in to recommend Oris and his crew to anyone requiring an honest and reasonably priced electrician. If you can wait the 2-3 weeks required to book HotWire, it's worth it. As other reviewers have stated, you can certainly find lower quotes elsewhere, but I truly believe 'you get what you pay for', so buyer beware!! You should have no such concerns with these folks. Great job HotWire, thanks!!

Potlights, Switch Re-Wire, Panel Upgrade & Other Work

I retain numerous Contractors and Trades annually for work on various projects. Oris at HotWire is WITHOUT QUESTION the best Electrician I have ever used. I will be referring him to all my clients and utilizing him on all my future projects. The work is clean, the guys were easy going and professional. They discussed better solutions to what we were doing and implemented same quickly. I was blown away by how clean the work area was, both during and after the work. I would be happy to provide a more detailed review to anyone who wants one - feel free to call me at 416 710 0304. OUTSTANDING. Don't be fooled by these other trades that quote cheap and then end up putting in an inferior product and/or charging more when on site because they found "problems". GET HOTWIRE and get it done right the first time!!!

When I deal with a trade, there are a few things I look for. My trades must be pro's, my trades must come quickly, and they must never leave me with a head ache. I have been on this site for quite some time now, I hire lots of trades from here. Orris has been the best. I was disturbed to see a review that was so out of character with all of the others that Orris and Chris have earned. I hope that one crack pot loser will not be taken seriously, look how many people have loved his work.... doesn't take a genius. I have been thrilled to have a trade as reliable and proffessional as Orris. I will hire them for all of my projects, they are that good.

Any advice to offer fellow homeowners facing a similar project?
Orris would be great for homeowners, I've met electricians that will insist that you mark on the wall every single switch and plug. Orris will just put them where you need them. If you want a good job done, and you don't know much about what needs to be done he is your man.

The truth is, my wife can be a bit of a penny-pincher. She had 5 or 6 other electrical companies come out here to give us reviews and all that stuff.. I saw 5 electrical companies in 1 day with her and Hotwire’s price was not the cheapest. My wife wanted to go with a cheaper guy and we did. He installed our panel and disappeared. Then when it came time for inspection, he didn’t show up and the inspector gave us a few defects on his report. I tried to call him but he never returned our calls. I looked him up in Homestars but he isn’t listed and now his # doesn’t work either. We found him on craigslist. I decided to get Hotwire back in here for a further review of the work, Hotwire wasn’t as cheap as the Craigslist dude but he passed inspection and completed the work as was required. I think maybe just maybe my wife can agree with me on this one too:: sorry for writing so much

Home Lighting

Good Day, I usually dont write reviews but Oris was surprisingly quick on the job and had lots of knowledge on how to set the system up and suggested some changes to make the Lutron Radio Ra system we installed much easier and user friendly. We spoke to a lady Hanna which arranged the date to install and set up our lighting system, and on that date (March 3) at 10 A.M. like we agreed Oris showed up with the right tools. 3 hours later the system was up and running, then which we walked through to each dimmer to set up the system to our liking. It was great in the fact that he knew the Lutron system and was quick to install and program. Thanks you two!! P.S. My kitchen is being renovated in september so I'll be calling....

My custom Home at last: I contacted Oris from Hotwire via our electrical supplier (they recommended him) so I figured I would refer him to my custom home builder who has had experience with electricians and we would give him a try. My last electrician wasnt that stellar. I was building a custom 4680 sqft home and Oris was to do everything. From 200amp service to 96 Contrast brand potlights, custom dimmers and switches and all state of the art theatre system. Needless to say, I dont take time to write these reviews (ever) but this is the first time that an electrician looked at the schematics and without 1 error got it 100% correct. Sure he isnt the cheapest. But he arrives when he says he will, he completes what he says he will and he is ALWAYS on TIME. Which for me and my GC is $$$$.
I will be using him on future projects. I hope this review doesnt mean he wont have time for me in the future.
