Video doorbell installation

Needed some help with a video doorbell installation in an old house and contacted The Honest Electrician thanks to the positive reviews on Homestars. Kyle was very transparent on the phone about costs and even alternatives that may not have required hiring an electrician. Due to the age of our existing electrical system and wiring we decided to go ahead with Kyle and we're so glad we did. He was a real pleasure to deal with and nice to have in the house. We will definitely use The Honest Electrician again!

Fix lights and more

Kyle is knowledgeable, effective, and systematic in his ability to solve electrical related problems. He fixed my pot lights that were defective (which was why he was called), but went above and beyond to fix a longstanding problem with our plugs, door bell, and a couple light switches.

New outlet installation

New outlet installation.
Kyle did a great job installing an outlet which was required for my new Telus panel installation. He came right on time, was very personable, cleaned up the drywall mess when he was finished, and left me feeling confident with his work.
I would highly recommend him, especially for any complicated electrical jobs that are required.
He also gave me a senior’s discount.

Commercial Case Study: The Honest Electrician Helped Mountain Mercato in Canmore Stop Experiencing Power Interruptions While Using Their Induction Hot Plates
The specialty food market and café were constantly tripping their main breaker anytime they used their induction hot plates for cooking, which caused everything in the store to come to a standstill. Fed up with the problem, Mountain Mercato called The Honest Electrician to see if he could help. The Honest Electrician immediately recognized the issue; a previously installed 120/208VAC three-phase power system had been poorly balanced. The Honest Electrician spent two hours taking various readings, then moved some breakers around to better balance the system. Mountain Mercato hasn’t tripped their main breaker while using induction hot plates ever since.
