Electrician

Terin was punctual, professional and informative. He went above and beyond in terms of service snd value. Terin installed a new plug, helped me figure out the best lighting options in the basement and installed an extra pot light at no charge. I would not hesitate to recommend Terin for any electrical issues you have. This is the second time I have used The Real Canadian Electric Co. and will not be the last!

Replace exterior outlet

Terin is awesome! I needed an exterior plug replaced, he explained the problem to me and tested the other exterior plug while he was here. He also took the time to inspect my breaker box and gave me some advice on that, as well as recommended new smoke/CO2 detectors & the brand/type I should pick up. He answered additional questions about some lighting in my house as well. I will definitely be using him in the future!! Thank you Terin!

Garage lighting

30 year old fluorescent lights in the garage - dim and dingy looking. Terin assured me prior to the visit that he had what I needed - bright efficient lighting. And he delivered! Work quoted and accepted before he transformed the space into the garage that I can work in and see what I'm doing - no comments on the quality of my work! Terin provided me top quality work in a timely manner. I'm now excited to get into the garage! Thanks to Real Canadian Electric!

Above and Beyone

Terin was the utmost professional from start to finish. He corrected the installation (by a previous contractor) of the Telus PureFibre box on the exterior of my house. He fished the fibre cable from the outside through to the basement of my house to the electrical panel. All the work he did, inside and out, was secured neatly. Terin is very competent and knowledgeable and took the time to explain options and expenses. I would definitely recommend Real Canadian Electrical to complete your projects!

Exceptional Service - Don't Go Anywhere Else for Your Electrical Needs!

This is the second time we've had Terin come out to service our electrical needs. The first time was to fix our main bathroom fan. Of course, the parts were no longer available but Terin worked his magic and found a replacement fan that was more powerful than what we had. Secondly, there was condensation along this bathroom's walls so Terin went up through the ceiling panel in the main bedroom closet to re-adjust our insulation that had been moved to one corner of our house by the gusty wind over time. He discovered that the condensation wasn't moldy and needed a top coat of sealing paint only (thank goodness). Meanwhile, he also replaced our smoke detectors with smoke/CO2 detectors on all 3 floors and ensured that our electrical panel had surge protection on it. Finally, he replaced our kids' bathroom with a fan that had wifi ability so that our kids could listen to their music while in the bathroom. All of this for under $1000!
This time, when we replaced the batteries in the thermostat, it began to smoke so we called Terin. He installed the new thermostat that we bought (after a discussion with him), re-routed wires from our electrical panel and connected the new thermostat to the house fan - all for under $200!
If you want a trusting, reliable and knowledgeable electrician who returns your call the same day that you call, who thoroughly explains what the problem is and how he will fix it, who tells you up front what the cost will be and who, more importantly, is willing to do the repairs the day after you call him, then Terin is your guy!

Additional outdoor plugs

I needed to add in 3 new plugs outside, I live in a fully developed house and was told by another electrician that the only way to do this without making a lot of holes inside and a lot of labour was to run conduit around the home.

Real Canadian Electric came out and said no problem and no conduit run around the home, they just needed to add one access panel, they gave me a quick quote and got started right away.

Everything was done quickly and to a high standard, even kept the doors shut to keep the AC in on a very hot day.

They also gave me suggestions on other electrical issues or options and found some issues from a previous electrician.

I have already booked them in for some more services to clean up the problems from the previous electrician, very reasonable rates and personable.

Expert Advice & Exceptional Customer Service

Terin came to our home to help us diagnose an issue with our basement bathroom fan and install a replacement light fixture in our ensuite bathroom.

He was extremely knowledgeable and took the time to explain what his services entailed and the costs associated with each of them.

I particularly appreciated his attention to detail and the time he took to thoroughly inspect our electrical panels and provide interim and longterm recommendations.

I would highly recommend Real Canadian Electric; many thanks for your superior service today!
