Washing Machine, Basement

Kyle was able to fix my front loading GE washing machine. After the plumber left water ran out the door which I caught in a bowl until The Honest Electrician came along. He was able to go over the machine and do the repairs in order to fix it. This young man also checked my wiring in the basement and found it wasn't grounded properly so he fixed that at the same time. As an older person I appreciate his kind honest words and good work. He's polite, quick thinking and very helpful. I highly recommmend him as he seems to know his wiring and even knows how to fix those darn electricial mess ups.

Hot Tub Electrical

Kyle was professional from start to finish and was able to work around contractor and landscapers schedules to get the job done. Very good wiring job from main panel through basement, out to breaker, and finally out to the tub.

Thanks again!

Aluminum Wiring

We purchased a home that was built in the 1970's in Lake Bonivista that had aluminum wiring. The insurance company required that the home needed an inspection by a Master Electrician and any electrical fixes been done before they would provide a quote and insurance. We were under tight times lines due to the sale of the home, and Kyle provided prompt and professional work. Kyle performed the inspection and completed the aluminum wiring repairs including using Noalax Anti Oxidant for the aluminum/copper connections, he provided us with a write up on the repairs that we used to secure our insurance quote and coverage.

Kitchen Renovation

We've had Kyle work on a number of projects in our 1957 bungalow over the last 7 years or so. Most recently, we gutted our kitchen and Kyle brought our wiring up to code. He also installed additional pot lights to brighten the space. He also suggested we use an LED under counter lighting system which we did and absolutely love. We've always appreciated Kyle's workmanship and have never had any issues with the numerous projects he has completed for us.

Kitchen Renovation

Kyle did a great job of recommending what product would be best suited (including sensitivity to price/cost) for my kitchen reno underlighting using LED strips. He was very professional and took care in the installation of the lighting, as well as advising me of new building code requirements that had to be corrected from the old electrical.

Home renovation and new basement

We found Kyle on Home Stars and all of the reviews for his company were positive. Kyle was very knowledgeable, competent, and very pleasant to work with. He came back as the job required and completed the whole job in a timely manner. We would highly recommend Kyle to anyone requiring an 'Honest Electrician'!

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.
