We called Salter Electric to wire the new office addition on our home. Steve came by gave us a quote and we scheduled the work. all the work was completed on time and on budget. The staff even cleaned up beyond expectation.
You cant ask for a better electrical contractor.
We would not hesitate to use Salter Electric again.

Salter electric figured out the problem that others could not. Very quick diagnostic and repair making for a more than reasonable cost and less shop downtime. Thank Steve for your fast response and excellent service.

Basement reno

We recently finished our basement and needed it fully wired including a rec room, bath, sauna, bedroon, workshop and sauna. The guys from Salter electric did everything beautifully, were efficient, very courteous and
finished the project within budget. The pot lights they installed are amazing and transformed our basement into a great living space. I will definitely go with Salter electric for my next project.

Quick, efficient and friendly service

Very quick and reliable service. The electrician helped to install a new light fixture and fix a dimmer switch on an existing fan unit. I was impressed by how friendly and knowledgeable he was and his price estimate was ban on. Would certainly recommend this company to friends and neighbours.

Replace a pony panel

Am installing air conditioning and needed to add room to an existing pony panel. Salter Electric removed the old pony panel, installed a new one and cleaned up. Got everything done on time and budget. Provided cost saving advice

Reliable and capable electrician

The company replaced malfunctioning electronic switches in our house this week. We have used Richard Salter for several electrical jobs in our house, and have found them to be punctual and efficient, and carry out the work required very well.

Electrical Service

Recently moved to Ottawa, had no idea who to call. Found Salter Electric online, very happy I did!
Steve showed up on time, was pleasant, respectful, and personable, and stuck to the quote he had given me over the phone. He answered all my questions and gave recommendations.
Steve was very professional, knowledgeable and completed the work quickly and efficiently.
Most excellent customer experience! I will recommend, and will call back if I need additional work in the future.

varied electrical work in an old house

I bought an older house (1930s) and the inspector said there might be aluminum wiring that would need to be pigtailed. Richard was able to come give the house a look and give me an estimate right away and within 4 days I had two of his guys in my house. He also told me that some of the things noted by the inspector can wait, so instead of trying to push to sell me more service, he actually tried to make sure I got what I needed.

They worked all day, from 9 to almost 4, no breaks, and confirmed that there was no aluminum wiring but replaced at least 12 ungrounded outlets with gfci, installed a bathroom fan and did the rough in electrical work for a whole bathroom, moved an outlet that was too close to the kitchen counter, fixed some wiring that was coming through the floor and going back on the wall.

We were very happy with the service and will A) recommend their service to our friends B) call them again to finish a couple of things in the next few weeks.

Great service at a great price. 1.6k for two guys includes taxes and materials used. Can't beat that.
