“They did work on one of my rental properties. To be honest, I think he overcharged me because all it was one of the plugs needed to be grounded. One of my tenants said that when they put it in there it wasn't grounded. It took the guy an hour-and-a-half to find out where the ground was, and it took a long time, and of course, they charged me maybe half an hour-$80 bucks. And then it was $320 for something; he took his sweet time about it, because he knew he was getting paid by the hour. So, I told the owner, and I can't remember his name, ‘He shouldn't have taken this long.’ he didn't charge me for 1/2 hour. Even my tenants thought that was too much money. He did fix the problem; I'm OK with that. I don't know if it takes that long to find the ground on one of the plugs. I would grade them a C. I probably won't use them again, I'm pretty loyal and usually stay with one place, but I don't know. I probably would not go back to them. He did know what he was doing, but took his sweet time.”

“They came for two different purposes, one was repairing switchers that were arching, and the other one was something about the outdoor lights that weren't operating. They were dependable, efficient, very friendly. I was very, very satisfied, so I would give Holt Electrical an A. It was great.”

Review by

“They checked the electrical in the office and a few other spots, and they put up a ceiling fan and put up a new light fixture. They were timely; they did the job and got the job done. It was very helpful. I needed it done in a certain timeframe. Overall, I'd give them an A.”

“Holt Electrical put in a generator for me. I thought the guys were great, they put in the generator five or six years ago now. And they do the maintenance on it twice a year. When they did it they were very thorough, they did an excellent job of putting it in, they've always been very responsive whenever I needed. I would grade them an A+. I had no problems with them, I would recommend them to anybody who would ever ask me.”

“It was a very positive experience. They replaced a number of light fixtures and some outdoor electrical work. A bunch of chandeliers, some fixtures from the ceiling, and some outdoor fixtures—a bunch of stuff. Incredibly courteous, very prompt, and kept me apprised of everything. I thought their price was very good for the amount of work that they did. I give an A+ overall. I think we already have recommended them. ”

“I would say I had a positive experience. They came more than one time, I think they did wiring, something of that sort. There was not a thing that I disliked. They're good workmen, there's nothing wrong with them. I give an A grade overall. I don't usually like to recommend anybody because sometimes it doesn't turn out the way you think it is. I would not even attempt to recommend anybody.”

“They're wonderful. They put in my generator. I live on the farm. They're great to work with, considerate of your whole situation, and they'll work with you on scheduling. They set everything up for you. They got the permit made, they coordinated everything to have the generator put in and made sure that everything was done right. They took care of the whole thing nicely. In fact, I have maintenance with them. They come in every six months, they call me and set up when they're going to come out and all that. They're really nice. I'd give them an A+. I have recommended. ”

“We’ve had a couple things done. I think one of the last things was putting some circuits for some light switches that were different for us. We were quite happy with what he did. He was pretty efficient and effective. I would say A overall. He came when he said he was going to come. He did what he was going to do, he was reasonably efficient, and came up with a good solution. He came up with the solution that we needed to our problem. He was reasonably creative in solving the issue. Their cleanliness was the big thing. I'd have no problem recommending them.”

“Holt Electrical has done quite a bit of work for me. I've been using them for years. Most recently, they serviced my backup generator, but they've done a lot of work for me in the past year running some big lines. They know what they're doing. I give an A+ overall. ”

Review by
10/28/2016

“We did have them come up, they did a project, and I remember we were happy with it. It was electrical work. They showed up. I know that sort of sounds crazy, but the person who referred them to me says you can rely on them for showing up. So when they came and did a project for us a year ago, they showed up. I would give an A.”

Review by
10/28/2016

“They were putting recessed lightings in a study. I'd give it an A+ overall. I would recommend them. They were very informative, explaining to me the type of lights that could be used and the benefits of the type that I chose. That was helpful because I didn't know about different types of lighting.”

Review by

“They did electrical work for me. The work was excellent. He was a very nice and courteous gentleman. He did his job, was paid, and he left. I give my overall experience an A+ rating. The man did an excellent job. ”

Review by

“They put a generator in for me. They were a little slow getting started, but nothing they could help. I'd say at least a B+, maybe an A overall. I don't know about punctuality, I live here. They came and worked when they wanted to.”

Review by
10/28/2016

“They did some electrical work. It was a regular contractor. They were contracted to work on a permit, an electrical permit that they got from the county. They came in and did what they said they would do. I have no complaints.”

Review by
10/28/2016

“They've done several different jobs for us. They installed some outdoor lanterns or lights. They were very professional, neat, and they did a good job. They made an appointment and took the bill on time. I give an A- overall.”

“That was probably like six months ago. I've used them for ten years. I like their service and I like their employees. I was having some outside lighting and wiring fixed. I'd give them an A+ for everything. ”

Review by
10/28/2016

“I think they did some work for me. I definitely had a positive experience. They replaced outdoor light posts. They came quickly and they weren't overly expensive. I'd probably give a B+ overall.”

Review by

“They upgraded our service from a hundred amps to two hundred amps. I liked their tech they sent out, the electrician—he was very personable. I would give them a B.”

“They were doing some repairs for the house to get it ready for selling. I give an A for the overall experience.”

Review by
10/17/2015

“They were very professional and very knowledgeable. They also told us what a contractor did wrong from a different company. They had to rewire lights in several rooms, and they installed lights. Also, they fixed a wire that was loose outside. I think it was cut. We called a number of people. We were very, very happy. Maurice was great. We would recommend them wholeheartedly. They deserve an A+.”

Review by
10/15/2015

“I like that they're responsive. They're repairing my generator. They're the only people who will do the work, and somebody referred me to them. I'd give them a B. It required two different service people to come out to do it. The first person didn't have the knowledge that they needed to have to do the job.”

Review by
10/15/2015

“They seem to know what they're doing. Their prices seem reasonable. They're nice people to work with. They've done miscellaneous things—they've done outside light work and miscellaneous things like that. We've used them for years. I would say they're an A.”

Review by
10/15/2015

“The service was great, but in comparison to some of the other electricians we've called, they were on the high side for their service. But we've used them multiple times because they do good quality work. I think they're too high. The people that have been out were very professional and have always done a very nice job. It's been a pleasure working with them. My only complaint is that I think the firm is too high. This last group took down some electrical lights over here and replaced them with new fixtures, and they took down a couple fans and put a new fan up. I had what I thought was an electrical short, and they did a verification to find out that my family had put in too high of a wattage of bulbs in the fixture and that we’d almost caused a fire by having the wrong wattage. They verified that for us and made us aware of what wattage to put in. We've used them at least three different times over the years. My wife was the one who probably found them. If I were just grading them on the work, without the price being included, I'd give them an A. They've really done good work, and they're professional when they come out. We've really enjoyed working with them.”

Review by
10/15/2015

“They were very responsible and did very good work. They seemed to be affordable. Most importantly, they did good work and were very honest. They did two or three different jobs that I called them for—they installed an overhead lamp and a ceiling fan in my master bedroom, and then they installed track lighting in my living room. I have concrete ceilings, so there are some that are hardwired, but with the rest, they had to do a little bit more work to draw those new lines out and install them in the concrete. They did a beautiful job. They were quick, clean, and efficient, and it looks and works really great. I'd rate them an A.”

“Holt Electrical does the maintenance on our electrical generator. They do the annual maintenance, and one time, when the generator stopped working, they came out very quickly. I'd rate Holt as an A.”

Review by

“We've used them for years, so we just like the fact that they do the job. We've dealt with them for probably 20 years. Just recently, we've had them check some outlets. I'd give them an A rating.”

Review by

“They did work for me in December of last year. They did what I asked them to do, and it worked. I had them replace some light fixtures. I've used them for some years. I’d give the company an A grade.”

Review by
10/02/2015

“It was great. I liked that they came and fixed my stuff. I had them install an outlet in our apartment. Holt was a referral from one of the people in the building. I'd give them an A.”

Review by
10/02/2015

“They did a very good job, they came when they said they would be here, and I was very happy with their service. I had a light fixture installed most recently. I’d grade them an A. I would use them again if I needed more work done.”

Review by
10/02/2015

“They were prompt and thorough. I picked them because they were a referral. I had them do some outlets and verifying some other information—checking out some other electrical issues. And also, they did whole-house surge suppressant. I'd give them an A++.”

Review by
10/02/2015

“It's always been positive. I've been using them for several years for everything from faulty rear lighting to a problem with the dining room lights. I've been very pleased with their work. I've been using them consistently for a decade. They're an A-grade company.”

Review by
10/02/2015

“I liked the quick and prompt work they came out to do. Recently, they came and gave us a proposal on several jobs. Before that, they came and checked out the surges—one of my problems. We've been using Holt for many years. It's been quite a while. I would give them an A.”

Review by
10/02/2015

“They're excellent. They're professional and on time, and they always send somebody out here when needed. They're just a great company. Most recently, I just had them do some electrical work inside; they did our generator. I found them through a referral from a family member. I'd give them an A+.”

Review by
10/02/2015

“Holt Electrical did a wonderful job. They always do, always have. They had to rewire the electrical service to two new air conditioning units that were being installed. It's been many, many years since we picked them. They've done all the work at our house for 15 years or so. Give them an A+.”

Review by
10/02/2015

“I think Patrick is the gentleman that came out to my house, the service tech. That dude—I had a pretty serious electric problem. I had a short in my house and by God if that dude wasn't able to figure that out within 30 minutes and almost fixing it another hour and a half. I'd have to say the technical aspect of the technician’s knowledge base was outstanding. I was referenced to Holt by a friend, and as well as I was under the gun. We were selling our home, they were willing to come out ASAP, and a lot of the other people were like, ‘We'll be here in three or four days.’ I'd absolutely give them an A.”

Review by
10/02/2015

“The only thing I didn't like about them is that it took them quite a while to get out to do the job. But other than that, they came early in the morning as I requested, they were very professional, and the job was done well. They hung a ceiling fan. I would give them an A- just because of the scheduling glitch, but otherwise, I was satisfied.”

Review by
10/02/2015

“They worked on the generator. He came last year. We have a contract, and he came and spent about an hour or two doing our generator. He was a very confident, very friendly fellow; he was methodical, and I like him a lot. It's a good company. We felt that the generator itself was a better generator than another company sells. We didn't know about Holt before that, but we liked the generator, so that's why we picked them. They're an A.”

Review by
10/02/2015

“I found them through my realtor. He was aware of them, and he was aware of some others, but Holt had the best pricing and responded more quickly than the other companies, so I went with them. I had them replace all of the electrical stuff in the house and up the amps, so it was about a $3,000 job. They were very customer friendly and so forth. They were diligent in getting the job done. They had to coordinate with another company, and that was not their fault, but it took a while because that company wasn’t being as responsive. But Holt was very persistent with them and telling them I needed the work to get done at a certain point in time. At the end of the day, it got done. They'd get an A.”

Review by
10/02/2015

“We'd hire them again in a heartbeat. In fact, we're planning on it. We've got some more work for them to do. They were installing light fixtures most recently. My wife used them originally. She just asked around to see if there was a good company, and Holt popped up, so she hired them. They installed outdoor floodlights for her. The guy was really nice and did really good work. In fact, when we moved here, we had to have work done, and we requested that the same guy come back out. The last guy they sent out was really great, too. We need some drywall work done, too, and they were able to recommend someone for us who we were really happy with. I'd absolutely give Holt an A+.”

Review by
10/02/2015

“They were fairly responsive. They took care of the problem in a somewhat timely manner. We haven't had another issue since then, and they did a good job of explaining what the problem was and how to keep an eye out for it in the future. It was in the middle of a blackout and my 96 and 98-year old grandparents' generator did not start, which is a major health issue. We gave them a call and luckily—they weren't able to get to us that day unless it was an emergency call, but luckily the power had gone back on by the time we were able to get in contact with them. Then they came back and repaired the generator within two or three weeks. Their customer service on the phone was good. I would give them a B. I think it's not entirely their fault, it's just the timing of the issue and the time between they were called and the issue was resolved was a little too long but those were mainly due to the fact that they didn't—there were two issues and when they resolved the first one they couldn't figure out the second issue until they resolved the first issue. So it took them a little time after they resolved the first issue to get the part to resolve the second issue.”

“I will never, ever work with them again. What happened was they charged you sixty some dollars to evaluate what's wrong with your air conditioner. I paid that money. The guy came out to look at my air conditioner. He said one of the compressors that actually starts the fan had gone bad. He said this has gone bad. That's like a $8, $9 part. Then he said however, even though the part is cheap, we don't charge you by the part, we have a rating scale. And then he showed me a piece of paper that started from $1,100, $1,300 to $1,400. He said you don't fall in this category. Then he went to $1,100 and said you don't fall in this category. Then he went to like $700 to $800 and he says you don't fall in this category. However, you do fall in like 500 some dollar category. So even though the part is cheap, you fall in this category and we have to charge you 500 and some dollars to do the work. And I told him you need to pack up your stuff and you need to leave as soon as you can before I report you. And then, you know, he called his office and he said you still owe us the $63. I said go ahead and charge that money. And then on the way out, when he was backing out, he hit the decorative wall on my driveway and broke the stones on that and quietly left and never even reported that damage. We took pictures on all that. I would grade the overall experience with a D or F. It was very, very bad. Terrible.”

“I have had positive experiences and I've had negative experiences. We will talk about the negative, because it is really an issue that bothers me. The most recent, I had some light fixtures replaced. But then the fellow who came to install them started going on and on about all kinds of other things that were wrong and it needed to be fixed. And his assistant did most of the work, while he spent time at my switch breaker and up in my attic looking at, you know, at the electrical boxes. And it ended up being three hours to install three light fixtures because, you know, all these other things were wrong. And once you replace a light switch, you have to put a dimmer. Oh, whoever put in the last one was all wrong. Now, I've been down this wrong with other repair people and it real irritates me. They ran up the bill and they're telling everything I ever did wrong with my house. Not even in their area. They were referred to me by, incidentally, my plumber who usually is spot on when referring me to repair people. And in the past, I had used them to do some work in this house, and they were fine. But it was the particular electrician that they sent over who coincidently had done some work on my daughter's condo five years and it was the same thing. It was the same deal, running up the bill over nothing. I won't use them again, but I am satisfied with the work. I would rate it a C.”

“They replaced my electric panel. They're misleading. They told me a lie. The work, I'm not sure about. They said they would charge me $85 per hour, but then the actual charge was not based on hours. It was some sort of odd number, so I paid like over $3,000, which is ridiculous. I would say they're maybe a passing grade if not for the price. The immediate problem was solved. In that sense, they accomplished what I told them to do.”

Review by
02/18/2015

“I thought the technician was prompt, professional, and generally did a nice job. I had to rely on another expert to help me with the decision on what was the right option. I also ended up—because of cost, I could get materials cheaper—ordering some of the materials myself for them to install. They installed six ceiling lights, they got rid of a frayed wire in my garage, and they installed a ceiling fan. I feel they deserve a B.”

Review by
02/18/2015

“Their technicians knew what they were doing. They were very fair. They were knowledgeable in the areas they were working in, and they fixed what everybody else screwed up. They reconciled some issues with a panel that serviced the generator, and they also put in some lighting in another room in a cabinet, a very specific type of lighting. They're an A company. My son is looking at possibly putting in a generator, and I have told him if he's going to do it, I would recommend one person and one person only to do it, and that would be them. Having made mistakes in the past, I'm recommending them to a family member, to my son.”

“Holt did the generator, and they did a terrific job. Andy put the generator in. The guys from Holt were out here three or four times. They keep it current. There's a lot of people around the neighborhood, I would say ten to fifteen people, all have the same generator. It's very popular here. Holt has done a terrific job. They were recommended. We got them through our general contractor. They are very prestigious, and they recommended this guy. Andy was terrific. They come at all hours and fix everything. That generator has come on ten times in the two years, since I've had it when the power's gone out. It cuts on so fast that my computer doesn't even go off. I'd give an A.”

“They were prompt and were here when they said they would be here. They’ve come over three times within the past six months to do some electrical work for us. My wife saw a plastic Christmas tree that you could put outside, so that's what they did—it was one of these plastic trees that happened to have lights on it. The neighbors liked it. When they worked on the tree, they showed up on time, and I could tell that they were experienced and knew what they were doing. They're proper and professional. I asked for recommendations from somebody who deals with contractors all the time, and they mentioned Holt, so I called—that's how I got to know them. I'd give them an A.”

Review by
02/18/2015

“They did good work. They came out and checked the system after the first year, which was nice. I didn't have any problems or issues with it. They did a whole-house generator system. My wife had a good feeling talking to them, and we were convinced that the product was a good one and that the generator was high quality and would last for a while. I think they get an A from us.”

“They're on time, they're reliable, and they do a good job. They've done many things for us—they've replaced light boxes, they've replaced switches, they've replaced circuits, they've put extra circuits in panels, and they've fixed outlets. I've been using their services for two years, and I've never had to call them back because something hasn't gone right. I'd grade them A.”

“Holt Electrical is wonderful. They’re very reliable and professional, and they know exactly what they’re doing. I’ve never been dissatisfied with them. They’ve installed all kinds of electrical things—they’ve done electrical panels, electrical fixtures, front door lighting, and things like that. I’ve been very pleased with their knowledge. I’d give them an A+.”

“We've had a good experience with Holt. They installed lights, and they replaced lights on the front porch. They're prompt. I've had a good experience with one of their veteran workers, and I always ask for him. They tell you what you need and what the problem is, and they really follow up. One of our neighbors that recommended them. Holt gets an A- overall.”

“They're dependable. They've done multiple residential repairs on an old house. They've rewired several rooms that were gutted and things like that. They've installed a new electric system in our house. It was a hundred-year-old house, and it was major renovation work for an old house. I've been using them for 22 years. I'd give them an A grade.”

“I didn't have a big job, but they did it fine. A ceiling fan was broken, and we had to get a new ceiling fan and install it. They gave me good advice on the old one; I said, ‘What can I do with this old ceiling fan?’ because it was still in good shape except that it was not reliable. His advice was, ‘It wouldn't be safe.’ I haven't had to call them back—I haven't had a problem at all. I'd give them an A.”

“I trust the work they do. They're friendly and informative when I have questions. They installed a dining room light for me, and they did one over at my daughter's house. They've fixed some other little things, put lights in the garage, and a couple other little things. My relationship with the company has been going on for five or six years. I've never had to call them back because something broke. I'd give them an A.”

“Holt Electrical did some work last year on my generator. They were on time, they were candid, and they didn't try to oversell their services. They had been involved in the installation of the generator, and I was questioning whether to add additional connections to it; they explained to me why I would or would not want to do that and what the drawbacks were. Based on that, I did not go forward with the work. It was a good experience—they suggested things against their interest. I would have had them do the work, but they explained to me why I wouldn't want them to do it. I remember them looking at my system, and they were generally familiar with it because they put it in. They explained to me the downside of trying to get the system to do more. When they put the installation in, it was good, and the way they treat people is very good. I was very happy with them. It was an A-grade experience.”

“The first they came out, it was for a heater in the water tank closet. When the man seated the heater, I said 'There's something wrong, that shouldn't be sitting like that.' He says 'Well, it's too small, the hole is bigger than it is' but I said that it was coming out at an angle and it shouldn't be. You have to get somebody to come out here and put caulking around. He left so I called them back and they did come out right away. They did send somebody out who worked very hard on it and didn't charge me anything extra. He did seat it pretty good. I can say that I'm content that they attended to the problem. They did respect my call when I said there was a problem. I think I'd have to give them a B even though the second man was certainly more skilled and did his work real well. If you have somebody coming out to represent you, they should be doing it right and perfectly the first time.”

“So far, their work has been satisfactory. I would say the experience was neutral. I had no problems so far. I thought they were expensive, but no problems. They seem to have done the work properly. They put in a generator. I'd actually say it's a little less than satisfactory, because they put in a new electrical box and didn't label the various circuit breakers—they should have done it automatically, and there shouldn't have been an exorbitant charge. When I asked them about it, they said they would do it, but it was a lot of money, and I think that's just not a good way to do business. I'd forgotten all about that. My wife said they did a good job, and I said that they did a good job, but I'm not happy with the fact that they didn't label the circuit breaker. That part could have gone better. I would give them an A- in terms of the quality of the work they did.”

“During my first call with them, they listened to everything I had to say. I had a ground fault interrupter that was acting weird in my kitchen, so they came in and they took care of the problem. I had already spoken with two other electrical contractors who wanted to charge me a whole bunch of money to come out and look at my problem, but Holt listened to my problem and said, ‘You don't need to pay us anything. You need to take care of this a different way.’ They gave me a different way that didn't cost me anything. That told me right there that I could trust them, so when I had a problem that they could take care of, they were the first trade people I called. They were on the job and got it done very quickly. I was very, very pleased with what they did. I'd give them an A, definitely.”

“They were efficient and friendly, and they did a good job. They called it a 'heavy-up'—they switched out the electrical box to make it a newer, more powerful one, and they repaired a couple of outlets that had aluminum wiring. I found them through a referral—my parents had used them. They deserve an A, but there was one issue—it was not really directly their fault, but there's a final part of the job, which I think is linked to the big electric company, that hasn't been completed. I don't know if it's Holt's responsibility, but the electric company is supposed to come out and do some final thing they have to do to hook everything up. We're waiting for that, and it hasn't happened. It's frustrating, but I'm not sure it's Holt’s fault—I still speak highly of them.”

“They put in a generator. They did exactly what they said they were going to do—it's pretty complicated to install one of those; you have to dig trenches and lay gas lines, so it can be pretty disruptive, but they did a nice job. They used subcontractors, and they all showed up except for one guy, but I don't blame them for that. They made a good deal with me, and I got a good price. I've only had to use them once, and I wasn't home when they came, but my wife said it worked fine. I'd give them an A. I think they deserve it.”

“We've used Holt Electrical, and generally, we're very pleased with them. We've been using them for a long time. They've done light fixture repairs, they've put in a house-wide surge protector, and they did some work on our breaker box. They come when they say they're going to come, they fix what needs fixing, and we don't do a lot of comparison shopping, but it seems like their rates are pretty reasonable. I would recommend them to other people for sure. I'd probably say an A sums up our experience.”

“The estimate was reasonable, and they were timely. It was a one-person job—it was not a big deal. I had them do two sets of work; one was putting a surge protector on the electric box in this apartment, and the other one was putting in a fan. The same man came and did it both times. He did a good job, he did it neatly, he did it tidily, and he came on time. It was fine. I asked the office to recommend me people who do electrical work—that’s how I got their name. I think they are an A grade company.”

“They did electrical work for me. Most recently, they've been helping me with the lights on a fountain, and they’ve also had to hook up some electrical outlets—the outlet outside wasn't in the right spot, so they put in electrical outlets for us. They follow up with what needs to get done, and if things aren't taken care of, they will come back and do what they need to do to get the job done. They have good people that have been with them for a while. I would give them an A.”

“They're great. We've used them before. I've recommended them, because we've been using them for 25 to 30 years. They installed some chandeliers in the dining room and the bedroom, and they helped us with some wiring problems that we were having in a new house that we just bought. They've been consistently giving us excellent service. They always get an A grade. The technician was great. We've used the same gentleman again now for about ten years or something like that.”

“They installed a generator several summers ago and have maintained it ever since. They're good guys, but they're not cheap. We asked for a fairly elaborate generator setup, and invariably, during the process of doing it right and bringing it up to code safely, they discovered stuff that upped the cost, but we didn't really have a choice with that. I feel they're scrupulous, they're attentive, and they're good guys. They deserve an A+.”

“They’ve maintained our generator for four years or more. When you call them, when you have a contract with them, they're very responsive. Even when you don't have a contract with them, they're very helpful with solutions and alternative options if they cannot serve you right away. Most of the time, they can serve you right away and accommodate the schedule to your needs. They get an A from me.”
