Electrical work

Kyle showed up early and honoured his quote even though one of the jobs turned out to take more time than anticipated. He totally cleaned up afterwards and we are very happy with the work he did. I will definately call him again for any more work.

Garage Wiring and Sub-Panel

Kyle and Darcie, thank you both for doing an outstanding job on wiring and installing a sub-panel in my garage. Both Kyle and Darcie were friendly and spent the time explaining any questions I had. You can easily see that both Kyle and Darcie take great pride in their work. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone. I was very happy with their work and I will be calling them for future electrical projects.

the name is true

Installed a bathroom fan and it turned out to be a tougher job than any of us thought. The original estimate was honoured, even though they worked much longer than anticipated. Very happy with the service. I'd call again for sure.

Proper kitchen electrical wiring of appliances

Kyle and Darcy were amazing folks to have working on a large scale project on numerous residences and for the entire facility area. They were kind and professional and pleasure to have working on the house. In addition Kyle went above and beyond to properly wire and install a dishwasher that turned out to be more complex than we originally thought. Best service and I would highly recommend to anyone.

Basement Wiring

I had the fortune to met Kyle trough a coworker, he is very professional, exceptional and promptly on his job, but most of all trustworthy to the point that I felt comfortable leaving him alone while I was at work, something I never do. Definitely I recommend him!!!

Electrical Repair

Kyle and his team did an incredible job restoring power to our home. Along with Darcy and Brandan, he had us back on the grid in no time. They all deserve a big shout out for their great customer service. If I ever require an electrician again I will only need to make one phone call.

Installing hard wired smoke detectors

I contacted Kyle to install 6 hard wired interconnected smoke detectors and he was amazing. He showed up early because there was a snow storm and he didn’t want to be stuck in traffic.
Once he was here, he took a look at what I needed done and then got right to work.
Installing smoke detectors sounds simple but these were not. I wanted new locations in each bedroom and I wanted them to be on the same circuit so they were interconnected across 3 stories. So if one alarmed, they all would beep.
Kyle worked non stop, crawling through the attic and fishing wires through the floor and walls for hours!
He even found a way to make a discreet cut in the drywall where no one would notice.
Would definitely call him again for anything electrical!

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.
