Electrical for Kitchen Reno

We had Kyle do some electrical work for our kitchen reno. We had 6 pots lights installed, and added 2 plugs to our kitchen island (1-for microwave, 1-new one for island). Kyle did a nice job with the install. He came on time, cleaned up the area after words, answered my questions, offered good suggestions and was polite and professional. He was also very gracious when I wanted to make some last minute adjustments.

He is very knowledgeable and great to work with!

Misc. Electrical Work

Honest Electrician performed some work around the house recently (potlights, wall sconces, plug work, etc). They gave a straightforward time and materials rate prior to starting the job and showed up as planned. No surprises and great work. Really appreciated the service and we will definitely use again. I recommend others consider them for their electrical work.

Multiple Residential Jobs

We had Fraser come by to take care of various jobs around the house, including:
- replacement of two bathroom fans
- installation of 4 pot lights in various rooms
- installation of an outside wall light
- fitting a keyless light in the basement

Not only were the jobs done well, he was able to accommodate some additional work during the same visit. Fraser was able to answer all my questions and provided great suggestions for future jobs I had in mind. Would definitely recommend.

Panel

Mike, the electrician, was professional and quick. I explained the issue and he knew immediately how to fix the problem. I would call The Honest Electrician again without hesitation and would definitely recommend them to others.

Replacing circuit breaker, panel, outside stack, aluminum remediation.

It was delight to have Kyle work for us. We love supporting small businesses like The Honest Electrician who do what they say and know their craft. Kyle was professional, amicable, and the only downfall is that Kyle is a Sask. Roughrider fan:) I would recommend Kyle to anyone needing electrical work done.

Electrical Service Upgrades

Kyle and his team upgraded the service and some of the wiring in our 100-year-old house. He completed the work on time and even went the extra mile, completing some items that weren't in his original scope. One had one minor issue with the electrical inspector, which he remedied immediately. I highly recommend Honest Electrician.

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.
