Replacement of light fixtures.

I contacted Kyle after reading numerous positive reviews on HomeStars. These reviews couldn't have been more accurate and mirror my experience with Kyle. He was in touch very quickly to set up a time that worked for me and came promptly as promised. He couldn't have been more delightful to have in my home and replaced two of my light fixtures in no time. The third fixture required some modifications to allow it to work in the space and Kyle knew exactly what to do and spliced together the wiring so that everything fit perfectly. While at my home, I was able to ask for advice regarding other lighting issues I have and will most definitely have Kyle back to deal with those. His bill was much less than I had anticipated and I am 100% satisfied with his work. I would encourage anyone looking for an electrician to contact Kyle!

Kitchen and Family room pot lights

Kyle installed 13 pot lights in our kitchen and family room which made a world of difference to the look and enjoyment of the space. Kyle is a total professional, courteous, and very careful in carrying out his work. We'll certainly have him back on future projects and wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone requiring a fair and honest electrician. Thanks for your quick service and attention Kyle.

Great service, good price

We had 3 ceiling fans installed. His estimate came in about $300.00 less than the others. The installation was booked less than one week after the fans arrived. The installation was quick, professional, and very well done. We are extremely satisfied.

Light fixture installation (16' ceiling in foyer)

It's not always easy to get someone to do a small job, but Kyle was very willing to do this for us. He was very pleasant, efficient and professional. I would definitely use him again for any job, big or small.

Project

On the phone had my questions answered to my satisfaction. He was prompt. Other than the specified task, he did not hesitate to do other tasks ,like changing another fixture etc. and wall sockets. He also asked to check how I wanted things, this way or that.
Very professional and respectful . You don't see much of that around these days.

Panel Upgrade Completion

My partner and I made the mistake of having another electrician come to our house to start on a rewire and panel upgrade project at our new house and found out quickly that they were less than what we expected of a professional company. We decided part way through the project to let them go and give Kyle a call as we had worked with him in the past and it was great. Why we didn't just call him in the first place is still beyond me but i'm really glad we did. Kyle pulled through for us in a big way by coming out to complete what the first electricians started despite reservations about having to take responsibility for the quality of work that had already been completed. He never failed to show up on time and complete the work he said he would each day with no excuses. On top of that he is incredibly friendly, professional, efficient and an overall pleasure to work with and I wouldn't hesistate to recommend him to anyone. Thank you Kyle, we truly appreciate it and hope we get to work with you again in the future!

Project

We are so glad that Home Depot recommended that we have Kyle come and do our light fixtures, moving our microwave and exchanging our light switches. He was very punctual and took the time to explain what he was going to do for us.

We definitely would recommend him to others who need electrical work done.

Hard wire automatic patio screens / create new electrical outlet / install dimmer lights

Kyle Moss, the Honest Electician, has come to our home in Canmore twice - once to look at the work to be done and provide a quote, and once to perform the work. He was very punctual both times. The quote he initially provided was detailed and very reasonable, and in the end when the work did not take as long as he had thought, he knocked an hour off the final bill. Kyle was in my home for 2.5 hours, and I found him to be pleasant and efficient throughout. I would not hesitate to recommend Kyle to anyone.

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.
