A few odd jobs done well!

I contacted The Honest Electrician after some glowing reviews from some work colleagues, and they were spot on! Timely communication, upfront estimates, and all my small jobs done quickly and completely. Fraser knew his stuff, and worked efficiently! Couldn’t be happier, and will definitely use and recommend in the future!

New Staircase Chandelier Wiring and Support

Prompt and clear communication from Kyle. He did not attempt to underquote to secure the work, requested photos, listened to some of my anticipated concerns of this 75yr old house and responded to them providing clear detail of what to expect for the work, selected site and budget.
Day of the electrician, Fraser, was courteous and considerate of working around me working from home and familiar with working around 2 cats. Arrived on time, prepared for the project based on good communication with Kyle. I never saw him without a mask on, and he did a thorough clean up after the work was complete.
Work was completed as budgeted, with no additional costs added or overruns. A great process from start to finish!

Condo reno

I can honestly recommend these guys. Fraser and Kyle did an excellent job installing pot lights in our condo and a couple other tasks. They were flexible and worked with us as our ideas on how and where to install the lights changed. Their prices were very fair, and there was no surprise when the invoice came. The contacts I had in Canmore had not heard of The Honest Electrician before, so I was a little nervous. But there was no reason to be, as these guys were very a solid professional bunch. I would use them again the next time I need an electrician.

Electrical Panel Upgrade

Kyle was awesome. He had a great price and offered some clever solutions to our electrical panel upgrade in our 100+ year old house in Mission. I would definitely recommend his services. Check out his instagram for a view of his work (thehonestelectricianinc)

The Best Electrician!

I called The Honest Electrician - booked an appointment & within minutes Kyle figured out what the two issues were. He not only tested an outlet and resolved no power for my dishwasher, but he did not charge me! Fast service, punctual, and HONEST. I will refer all my friends & will call Kyle the next time i do need an electrician. (He did not charge me but i forced to put in a dollar amount)

Bedroom light repair

The light in my daughters bedroom was not working. Fraser came out and had it working in no time. We found him very friendly and knowledgeable. He answered some other questions and gave us some good advice for future renovations. Would definitely recommend The Honest Electrician.

Misc. Electrical Work

Honest Electrician performed some work around the house recently (potlights, wall sconces, plug work, etc). They gave a straightforward time and materials rate prior to starting the job and showed up as planned. No surprises and great work. Really appreciated the service and we will definitely use again. I recommend others consider them for their electrical work.

Multiple Residential Jobs

We had Fraser come by to take care of various jobs around the house, including:
- replacement of two bathroom fans
- installation of 4 pot lights in various rooms
- installation of an outside wall light
- fitting a keyless light in the basement

Not only were the jobs done well, he was able to accommodate some additional work during the same visit. Fraser was able to answer all my questions and provided great suggestions for future jobs I had in mind. Would definitely recommend.

Electrical for Kitchen Reno

We had Kyle do some electrical work for our kitchen reno. We had 6 pots lights installed, and added 2 plugs to our kitchen island (1-for microwave, 1-new one for island). Kyle did a nice job with the install. He came on time, cleaned up the area after words, answered my questions, offered good suggestions and was polite and professional. He was also very gracious when I wanted to make some last minute adjustments.

He is very knowledgeable and great to work with!

Commercial Case Study: The Honest Electrician Helped Mountain Mercato in Canmore Stop Experiencing Power Interruptions While Using Their Induction Hot Plates
The specialty food market and café were constantly tripping their main breaker anytime they used their induction hot plates for cooking, which caused everything in the store to come to a standstill. Fed up with the problem, Mountain Mercato called The Honest Electrician to see if he could help. The Honest Electrician immediately recognized the issue; a previously installed 120/208VAC three-phase power system had been poorly balanced. The Honest Electrician spent two hours taking various readings, then moved some breakers around to better balance the system. Mountain Mercato hasn’t tripped their main breaker while using induction hot plates ever since.
