Gave me peace of mind

We had several older light fixtures acting funny and burning out bulbs. Kyle responded very quickly to my email query and fit me in within a couple of days. He checked the panel installation, found the voltage coming in a wee bit high (which I will be mentioning to ENMAX), checked all the fixtures and replaced them with new ones. Our greatest concern had been we might have an electrical issue that could cause a short, but Kyle set our mind at ease as everything tested well. He was friendly and effcient. I would highly recommend Kyle!

Wiring and cabling

They moved power and a/v wiring to along a couple of walls to fit with a new built in wall unit we installed. They were timely, professional and clear about costs.

New power panel install in existing building

Kyle was responsible for new wiring, and adapting existing wiring. Kyle installed a new power panel, running several large cables (to supply a small bakery). Kyle is always professional, punctual, efficient, and cognizant of our operating business (much of the work was conducted when our business was open).

New electrical service, meter move, rewire old home

Kyle was excellent to work with. He was efficient and professional. I learned much during the project as I was working on separate wiring and asked questions throughout. Kyle took time to answer my questions and offered recommendations that were simple and cost effective. All of the work was completed in a timely manner and he worked around my schedule. Kyle and his workers were good to clean-up and make sure all was working before leaving. I appreciate the work that was done as it gets me on track with continuing my other projects. What I was quoted for the work was what it cost and that was a very fair price. I would recommend Kyle, The Honest Electrician, for anyone who has challenging electrical work to be completed for sure! I look forward to working with him again on future electrical projects. Thanks for being my dog’s bestie too!

Bathroom fan install

Michael showed up on time and completed the installation of my new bathroom fan in less time than expected. He made sure it was properly vented and cleaned everything up. It was a very professional job. He even helped me fix a problem I was having with a light bulb which I greatly appreciated. Without being asked, Kyle reduced my invoice. The Honest Electrition truly is and I highly recommend them.

Light fixtures,dimmers

Excellent service, prompt and timely on time. The quality work was second to none and at a very reasonable rate. I have done some electrical jobs myself but I will definitely call Kyle again; big or small he will do it all.

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.
