Wiring of kitchen, basement, outdoors....

Oris' team wired our new kitchen, our new laundry room, put in some new boxes, installed new pot lights, removed some electric baseboard heaters, connected our underfloor radiant heat, wired a couple of outdoor sconces, installed a couple of outdoor GFI outlets, installed under-cabinet lighting and cleaned up the wiring to our panel. They did a great job, including moving boxes they had just installed, when our kitchen cabinets turned out to be different sizes then what was ordered. We will be asking them to come back when we renovate our second floor.

Troubleshooting, new recepticle

Oris and Chris came by to do a few small jobs:

- Fix a 3-way switch
- Fix another switch
- Install a new recepticle
- Fix a problem with the length of a wire

Not only were both Oris and Chris awesome to deal with, they were very efficient too. They even found a problem with the wiring in my bathroom (low gauge wire) and fixed it. They even did some extra work that I hadn't planned for: installing a few new recepticles. Also fixed a recepticle that I had installed correctly which was repeatedly blowing a fuse.

Fast, friendly, efficient and good quality of work. I'll definitely be using HotWire for any electrical needs.

Getting rid of Knob and Tube

We have nothing but great things to say about Hotwire Electric-All. We've used Oris a few times before, but this was definitely our biggest job yet -- getting rid of knob and tube wiring. Plus, we needed it taken care of FAST as we were in the middle of renovations. Oris moved his schedule around to fit us in, for which we are extremely grateful. And just like every other time he has been to our home, he was respectful, professional, knowledgable and just an all-around great guy. We trust him completely. It was a pain getting rid of the know and tube, but now that it's gone, we're thrilled with the results. We'll definitely be using Hotwire again when it's time to tackle the basement. Believe the glowing reviews -- once you've tried Hotwire, you won't be using anyone else. Thank you, thank you Hanna and Oris!!!

Electrical Repairs & Fixture Installations

I contacted Oris at Hotwire after another electrian bailed on me. With the insurance company breathing down my neck to have electrical repairs completed at my new house I was in a jam and Oris helped me out. He came to see my place a few days after contacting him, provided an official quote by email and then scheduled the work to completed a couple weeks later. I even took the opportunity to have most of my fixtures replaced and I was pleasantly surprised to find all the work was completed quickly and professional.

Upgraded panel from 100 to 200amp

Hotwire came by provided an estimate and were able to start working 2 days later. With minimized inconvenience since both my wife and I work from home, he was able to perform the upgrade quickly and cleaned up after himself. Moreover, I have now referred him to our close friend who has a large plastic extrusion business and he performed a large commercial job and my friend is very pleased.

Hotwire, for our next project we are planning on installing outside potlights and you are my supplier of choice.

I expect to see you soon.

Thank you from John.

Custom Home complete electrical install

I contacted Oris from Hotwire via our electrical supplier (they recommended him) so I figured as a custom home builder who has had experience with electricians I 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 is $$$$.
I will be using him on future projects. I hope this review doesnt mean he wont have time for me in the future.

They were friendly, professional and hard working!
