We had a problem with our garage and powder room electricity which would not work from time to time. Two gentlemen that came to fix the issue and they very nice and friendly. They initially fixed the problem, however, we had the same problem a few days later. They might be coming back to update the wiring, hopefully this will fix the short circuit for good.

Hello and thank you for the feedback. I believe Tyler was back on site and found the issue and corrected it free of any costs to you.

I hired HotWire twice and was completely satisfied both times. 1) Jeremy and Junior installed potlights in my main entrance hallway. Based on their recommendation on the number of potlights required, the lightening is just right. They gave me options and cleaned up after the job completed. 2) Alex and Nick replaced potlights and fire alarms throughout my home. They were efficient and friendly. All around excellent service from HotWire. I will use them for future projects.

We used HotWire to replace the old electrical panel (fuses) at our house with a new circuit breaker before we moved in. The final cost ended up being $600 higher than originally quoted because Toronto Hydro implemented a new fee for connecting and disconnecting service two weeks before we had the work done. However, HotWire showed up on time (a few minutes early, even!) and we were very happy with the work they did. The electrician even took the time to point out wiring problems in our basement that we didn't know about and sealed them off for our safety.

Overall we would recommend HotWire and will be having them back for a full assessment of our house's electrical issues.

Thank you Tanya. We truly appreciate your feedback. We are also not too happy about Hydro's latest fees

Hotwire responded to our email within a day with a quote for replacing most of the light fixtures in our home. Once we committed, we were scheduled in very quickly. Tyler and Dan W. came to the house on time during snowy weather. After a walkthrough and some discussion, we made some adjustments to the initial estimate due to some limitations on our end. (We expected these limitations, and was glad to hear what our options were, even though we decided to hold off for now.) Trevor and Dan W. were both courteous, efficient and thorough. They answered my questions and offered advice when we asked for it. When some wiring issues came up, they let me know what needed to be done and when it affected our final cost. Tyler recommended a dimmer for my dining room and was able to install one that he had in the van (at an extra cost). We expected the job to take at least a full day, but they were done in four hours. I am thrilled with the results and am happy we chose to work with Hotwire.

Office was quick to reply to my email, give an estimate and set an appointment. Junior arrived on time , was courteous and patient. Took the time to answer all my questions/concerns. He replaced a few broken switches and installed dimmers in one room for pot lights, replaced two broken pot lights and checked a couple of outlets. We are very pleased with the work done. Will use their services again. Thanks!

Hotwire was very responsive and accessible by phone and email, and the electricians (Junior and Jeremy) were very professional, courteous and efficient. They quickly diagnosed all the issues and addressed them all in a timely fashion. I will use Hotwire again.
