Various Electrical Projects

Kyle is our "go-to" electrician. He's been to our house at various times over the past few months as we work through different upgrading projects in an older home that we purchased. Kyle has replaced faulty electrical outlets, removed unwanted outlets, capped off unwanted wall sconces, upgraded light switches, added dimmer switches and installed various light fixtures. He is always punctual and is efficient in getting the jobs done. He knows his trade well as is competitively priced. Besides this, he is always pleasant and provides helpful advice. Kyle is one of the "good guys" out there who lives up to the name of his company.

Electrical work

Kyle was very prompt in his reply to my initial enquiry and had Mike complete the work the same week. We needed a new outlet and an additional potlight. The quote was very reasonable and the work was done quickly and professionally. I highly recommend this company, fantastic work and very courteous service.

Installation of new light fixtures on two floors

Emailed Kyle and he got back within the day to discuss the project. I was ready to replace 7 new light fixtures around my house and one outside. I also needed some work on one of my bedrooms that seemed to have a broken dimmer switch.

Kyle organized to have Mike come out and he was able to install the 8 lights in a little over two hours including one light that was very high up in my stairwell. Mike was great to work with and he even helped to cleanup the old fixtures and took them with him at the end of the job.

Kyle and Mike were great with communication, they both gave me phone calls the day of the installation to let me know when they would arrive and Kyle sent me a copy of the invoice in advance so I would know the amount to expect. He even made some adjustments the morning of the appointment as I had made some small errors in my count of the number of lights we needed to work on.

In the end we didn't need to install the dimmer switch after Mike found the issue with the light in bedroom and Kyle refunded the difference within the same day.

Would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a high quality and reasonably priced electrician.

Amp upgrade and new switch placement

Kyle was diligent, honest, and respectful of our home. He did such a tidy job and was transparent with us about his process and about the amount of time things would take. He has great advice and is willing to take the time to make a personal connection to truly fullfill his clients needs. We will for sure recommend him and hire him again for anything electrical.

Panel Upgrade in our home and a full rough in of our newly built shop

Kyle provided excellent service for us. He provided a quote within a reasonable amount of time after I contacted him. The quote he provided was very reasonably priced and once hired he dealt with all the permits needed and started work quickly. He was honest and efficient with his work. We are very pleased with the services provided and will be using Kyle for any future projects we will have.

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.
