“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, and good advice. We would use them again in a heartbeat—A+.”
“In all my dealings with Absolute I have found the staff to be professional, respectful, and helpful. The electricians arrived on time, performed the work professionally, answered all my questions, and cleaned up after completing their tasks—A+.”
“Absolute Electric's electricians are always punctual and friendly. Their services continue to impress me.”
“I needed an outside electrical outlet installed. The guy who came was friendly and on top of his game, and the outlet has functioned perfectly since.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“Very pleased with their great work. Have done several projects for us. Best customer service.”
“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.”
“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.”
