“Will, the electrician who arrived to install our ceiling fans, was punctual and efficient in every way. He was neat and tidy with the space, quiet in his duties, and timely with his work. I would have no reservations in recommending Absolute for a similar service.”

“We have used, and been pleased with, Absolute Electric for quite a few years when repairing our light switches to installing fixtures to installing whole-house surge protector to installing a Generac (a major job), etc. They do good work, are punctual, and pleasant to deal with. Their pricing is reasonable (more than you want to spend, but not outrageous).”

“The electrician team replaced a thermostatically controlled turbine fan in my room to ventilate my attic. They were friendly, knowledgeable, and extremely competent in their work. I would very confidently call upon Absolute to perform other electrical projects at my home.”

“They installed two ceiling fans, fixed the light above my kitchen sink, replaced a fuse in my outdoor post light and installed a new light outside the garage door. They were on time, worked quickly, and completed everything that I asked them to do. They were clean and all work was nicely done.”

Review by

“Absolute Electric has installed attic fans, smoke detectors, and a light detector on an outside pole lamp for me. All were done in expert fashion and according to the schedule presented by the office. They even stopped by to troubleshoot a smoke detector chirp, which was really coming from another detector (carbon monoxide) that they had not installed. This occurred on a Friday, and I was concerned about having problems over the weekend. It was handled at no charge, which I really appreciated.”

“I have used Absolute twice, the people who come to the door, are very knowledgeable and do quality work. The only downside is sometimes those who answer the phones there can be a little short with you.”

“Absolute Electric installed a roof fan and replaced a light sensor in an outdoor pole lamp. This was the second roof fan I have gotten through Absolute Electric. The manufacturer of the new fan will be the contact for any equipment failures, not Absolute Electric. When the new fan was installed, they had to return to the shop for a longer ladder even though I told them I lived in a 3-story townhouse. The electrician installing the light sensor was very knowledgeable, helpful, and polite.”

“I first used the services of Absolute Electric LLC in 215 and then again in July 216; I have scheduled another service with them in August 216. In all my dealings with Absolute I have found the staff (electricians, scheduler, and customer service) to be professional, respectful and helpful. For both visits the electricians arrived on time, performed the work professionally, answered all my questions, and cleaned up the work area after completing their tasks. I have recommended Absolute to a friend who will need electrical work done in the near future. ”

“I have used Absolute Electric several time and they always provide quality service. The office staff explains the fee and what to expect. The technicians always arrive on time. They offered me suggestions on improving electrical usage. They always clean up after themselves.”

“We  used Absolute Electric for two projects in our home. They did the installation for a chandelier in the foyer and they removed a chandelier in the dining room and replaced it with recessed lights. Fabulous customer service, nice work, good advice. We would use them again in a heartbeat.”

Review by

“The  electrician that came did an excellent job, and fixed the problem we had had since our contractor redid the kitchen. He also explained (understandably) other electrical questions that I had. I would definitely use them again.”

“Nice job, on time, did not mind me looking at what he was doing and he went out of his way to explain what he had to do and why. Overall, very nice work.”

“Horrible company. The employees are clearly very unhappy to work for this company which means it starts from the top. The person that wrote the job is different than the ones that actually do the work. So, when the electricians showed up hours late to do the work, they advised that they could not do half of it. The company had scheduled the employee to be at two jobs at one time which is why they were late. They left the house a mess. They did me a ‘favor’ per the estimator and attempted to lower a light and broke it. I ran and bought a new light at the store came back and had them install it. I said -don't hang it too high (pendant light) or it will look funny. They hung it too high and it looked ridiculous. I had to call a new-different electrician(highly recommended at the light store-should have done that to begin with!) to come re-wire it and rehang it. You would think with all the problems of that day:( 4 hours late-can't finish half of the proposed work, broke my light) that someone from the company would have called me and apologized but I never heard a word. I think they may have been good at one point but maybe grew too fast and can't handle it? I am not sure. This is not the employees fault- they are clearly working under bad terms/conditions. They were nice enough but very stressed out and getting badgered by someone in the main office that kept calling them. I would never use this company again.”

“Incredibly professional. The pricing was good, and great considering the quality of work done. The assistant to the technician did not really know English which caused some frustration for the technician. He also wandered back into our house to place a clip onto the dishwasher throw, which was fine, but they had technically left, and we were in the basement inspecting the job and we hear our dog barking and all of the sudden he's in the stairwell — he had not knocked or rang the doorbell before re-entering — it wasn't a huge deal but it was memorable and something AE should address with proper training for ALL employees. The inspector said they did a great job on the install, and in the end, that's 9% of what I care about, so props for a job well done.”

“I was selling my home and when the potential buyer inspected this home, he questioned the configuration of a circuit in the breaker box. I referred the buyer and buyer's agent to the technician from Absolute Electric, who had done the work, to respond to the buyer's question. I did not have any further involvement as Absolute took care of the questions and apparently satisfied the buyer.”

Review by
06/23/2015

“We had them redo our circuit breaker because we had an old tube and bulb circuit breaker. We wanted to modernize it and get it up to current code with switches. Overall, the work was very good. I think Robert was the electrician, and I think he is very skilled at what he does. They get an A—they’re very professional. They also put a surge protector on our house. They are very responsive; I called him a couple of different times several months after the project to ask him some questions about the wiring of our house because it's a little bit over 150 years old. Robert was very good.”

Review by

“Absolute Electric did some wiring for some outlets. They're a good company. Their response, their ability to do the job, and their explanations made the experience positive. They were very good—we've actually used them again.”

Review by
06/05/2015

“They installed pendant lights over my range in my kitchen island, replaced several light fixtures, and changed where the switches were to be used. They installed a mini chandelier with fan fixture and remote. They replaced the outside light on porch with fans, upgraded the light switch from three to five gang in bathroom and installed three additional lights, and moved three mini chandeliers. They were great. They came when they said they would, and they stayed until they finished. They were polite, careful, and cleaned up everything.”

Review by
06/05/2015

“What I particularly liked was that there were things I thought of after they arrived that were not part of what I initially requested, and the individual was happy to do whatever I needed them to do. It was my first time using them. The electrician was excellent. There was one job they couldn't do because I didn't have all of the electronic pieces I needed, but he wrote down exactly what I needed, so that helped when I went shopping. So far, so good—everything's holding up.”

Review by
06/05/2015

“I used Absolute Electric on two occasions, the first time to fix two malfunctioning multi-use light switches and install a new ceiling fixture. The second time was to install a light witch and outlet in a remodeled bathroom. They also installed a whole-house surge protection system. During both visits, the personnel were friendly and professional, explained the work they were doing, and kept the work sites neat and clean. They did quality work and exceeded my expectations.”
