Install new outlet for appliance, and five additional outlets and two Carbon Monoxide/Smoke Alarms

I had Real Canadian Electric come out to add an outlet for a new freezer I purchased and replace four worn outlets and one outside outlet with a GFCI weatherproof outlet.
They did a very good job on completing the above work.
Terin and his apprentice arrived on time and was friendly and informative. He conducted a safety inspection on the Panel and took the time to explain all his recommendations. As a result I had him install two new additional hard wired Carbon Monoxide/Smoke Alarms.
The only issue of note is that Terin explained his recommendations as just that recommended. His written reports were more of required. It seemed the written reports were an upsell for future work, not for current safety.
Terin is likable and to his credit he is a good salesman.

Thank you for the feed back. We are always glad to be able to help make the homes we work in safer for our customers. It is always our goal to neither under state or over state safety recommendations ; but to helpfully advise based on the condition of the installations. I believe that home owners are best able to make decisions that work for them, if provided with the relevant and applicable information. Thank for trusting this project to us. We will take your comments to heart.

Kitchen and bath fans installed

Terin, again, provided us exceptional service. This project was all about air flow - three upgraded bath fans and an installation of a new over the stovetop exhaust fan vented outside. His explanation of the various parts of this project showed a thorough understanding of his craft, keen attention to details and his top flight commitment to precise workmanship. Thanks again for adding to our homes livability!

Replacing ceiling light fixtures

We tried replacing light fixtures in our basement (have replaced many in the past). The wiring inside the junction boxes was unlike any we had seen before and we were stumped. Called Terin and he came by same day, fixed the issue and all is resolved. Excellent work and super friendly.

Excellent Troubleshooting, Very Efficient

Real Canadian Electric is a family owned company.
Terin was outstanding at finding the issue with no power in one of my rooms. He then provided recommendations for additional preventative maintenance in the wiring of my condo - all of which I agree with.
I will not hesitate to contact Terin for the follow up work required.
I highly recommend this company

Change wall switches to dimmer switches

Terin arrived same day of request and he was extremely knowledgeable and careful with the installation. The job was not as straightforward as we had thought and he accommodated the changes necessary. He also gave us several recommendations for some future ideas for both safety and efficiency. We would definitely hire him again.

Flickering Lights and Switch Replacement

We noticed two different fixtures in our home flickering recently despite replacing the lightbulbs. We also noticed one of the light switches was making a "crackling" sound. We called up Terin and he was able to come out the same day and have a look. Fortunately he was able to identify some loose wiring in the light boxes that was causing the flickering and he quickly repaired the connections. He also replaced the light switch for us. Overall, he did a very through job and clearly explained what the problem was and how he was addressing it. He was very upfront with the cost and we knew exactly what to expect. Very pleased with his service and will definitely be calling again for any future needs!
