Replacement of switches and receptacles.

I am very satisfied with the quality of Salter Electric's work. The owner, Steve Salter is highly professional, knowledgable and efficient. He responded to my call immediately, and was very punctual. He diagnosed and repaired my faulty home switching and receptacle issues rapidly. I would not hesitate to call Salter Electric again, and highly recommend this company.

Modifying wiring in our home to meet today's ESA requirements

I have absolutely no hesitation recommending Steven of Richard Salter Electric Ltd. There were 2 issues of immediate concern, consisting of repairing a faulty circuit that cut off electricity to half of our upper floor, and replacing overhead neon lights in a basement office. He did these tasks at our first meeting. Impressed with his work, we engaged his firm to take on a major job of modifying each outlet of our two story home affected by aluminum wiring. All workers had to meet local health regulations imposed by the current pandemic. His crew arrived in 3 weeks, moved what had to be moved, and were finished in 8 hours.

Living Room Pot Light Installation

Right from the get-go Steve was a pleasure to work with. From the quote to setup, he was professional and friendly. They did a great job getting the pot lights installed and cleaned up everything before they left. I'm thrilled at how quickly the turnaround was as well!

There's no doubt I would hire these guys again for any other electrical issues or needs that pop up.

Basement reno

We recently finished our basement and needed it fully wired including a rec room, bath, sauna, bedroon, workshop and sauna. The guys from Salter electric did everything beautifully, were efficient, very courteous and
finished the project within budget. The pot lights they installed are amazing and transformed our basement into a great living space. I will definitely go with Salter electric for my next project.

Quick, efficient and friendly service

Very quick and reliable service. The electrician helped to install a new light fixture and fix a dimmer switch on an existing fan unit. I was impressed by how friendly and knowledgeable he was and his price estimate was ban on. Would certainly recommend this company to friends and neighbours.

Replace a pony panel

Am installing air conditioning and needed to add room to an existing pony panel. Salter Electric removed the old pony panel, installed a new one and cleaned up. Got everything done on time and budget. Provided cost saving advice
