I recently purchased a home that was built in 1970s and had aluminium wiring. During home inspection, the inspector said the connections between aluminium wire and copper devices must be redone properly by electricians and must fall inline with ESA guidelines. So, I found this seminar listed in newspaper that was organized by Birnie electric and went with no idea. I am so glad I attended it as I got a lot of information and realized my home required work immediately. So, Michael from Birnie Electric came in for a 45 min free evaluation. He took a look around the house, made some observations and explained all the potential hazards. He explained the 3 step process - 1) An electrician from Birnie will spend a day to evaluate every electric access point and document all his findings. This is a paid evaluation. If you choose to hire them to do the fixes, a part of that fee goes toward the fix. 2) Someone from Birnie will come over to explain the documentation, what needs to be done, how much it would cost and installment plan 3) Electrician will come and do the fixes. I chose to go with the steps. During #2, when Michael explained the cost, I realized it was over my budget but I realized its an investment over longer run and also give peace of mind about safety. Marc was the electrician who came for complete evaluation and he was the one who came for the fix as well. There was another electrician (Terry) who accompanied him to help. Marc was just amazing. Very mindful of our home, leaving no mess behind. I asked plenty of questions during the work and Marc explained everything patiently with a smile. There were some new issues that he uncovered which was not in the list but yet he fixed them with a smile. It took 3 days to finish. They showed up on time and finished on time. The office takes care of everything from getting permits to scheduling appointments. I worked with Ms. Patti and she was amazing. During the 3rd day of the work, some one from ESA inspected our home, so they can issue the Safety certificate for our home, which I can use for home insurance. The work done by Birnie has 5 year warranty for parts and labour, which is amazing. The certificate is transferable too. Overall, I am so glad I chose Birnie. They are very professional and experts in what they do. I would strongly recommend Birnie for any home electric and safety work.
