replace outlets

Had a problem with one of our old outlets, was creating a spark and beginning to burn when other appliances were turned on, on the same circuit.
Captain electric came and replaced the old faulty outlet and checked additional ones. Replaced four of the old outlets to be on the safe side, now have a little peace of mind.
Extremely polite and conscientious.

Thank you for the positive review. We were glad to help. Replacing old and worn receptacles at the first sign of failure is always a good idea. I am pleased to hear that you found our electrician polite and conscientious. Thank you again, and we look forward to being of service in the future should the need arise.

Electrical Repair

Company's rates are upfront and very reasonable for the work performed. Serviceman (Dave) was very professional and accomodating. Work done in good time and for a good price. Will definitely use them again in the future as they offer additional services that would be useful, especially to a new homebuyer.

Thank you for the positive comments. We appreciate the reference to the 1950's. [I remember this myself - when full service at a gas station meant checking the oil, topping up fluids, checking tire pressure and cleaning the windows]. I believe every business could learn something by reflecting on this aspect of old fashioned service.

We truly do care about our customers, this is our culture at Captain Electric. My father taught me to "always do the Right Thing." Helping people, serving others, making their life and their home a little better, or a little safer - gives us great satisfaction, especially when it is appreciated by great customers like yourself. Thank you again.
