Jordan and Andrew replaced some lights with LED units and installed or moved several ceiling fans. Paul and Jamie came... in a few days later and replaced switches and ran some new circuits. They were especially conscientious and quick to discover and correct old circuitry that was not properly installed. They explained what they were doing in easy terms that we could understand. They went above and beyond the call and all the techs exceeded our expectations. They were pleasant and professional. Great service! We want to thank Reliable for taking this project on such short notice. We recommend them without any reservations.read more

They did a fantastic job. Had them upgrade our old 100amp fuse box to 200amp circuit breakers. They also installed... can lights in the living room and an additional outlet. They were fast, courteous and professional. The living room is a thousand percent better with the new lighting.read more

Paul and Jamie replaced 12 outdoor receptacles and 31 indoor LED lights. They were here around 9:00 and out by 2:00.... They were friendly and vacuumed my home, leaving it in mint condition. Our home looks radiant with the new lighting. I highly recommend Reliable Electric.read more

Reliable removed all the exposed knob and tube wiring in my house, repaired an outlet, fixed an issue with my... electrical panel, and installed two bathroom fans. Paul and Jamie explained everything they were doing, made sure I could still work while they were doing their work, cleaned everything up, arrived when they said they would, and finished on time. I have already scheduled Reliable to come back and install an outside outlet and to fix a few outlets in the house. I can't imagine ever using another electrician.read more

Reliable Electric was amazing. They installed an outdoor outlet. They hand dug the strip that would house the pipe... from the box to new outlit. They were careful not to disturb any other wires, pipes, etc. they put the grass back so you couldn’t even tell it was dug. They were professional, cordial and efficient!read more

They had to do more than restore power - it was a bad wire from our detached garage building (containing 8 people's... garages) in my townhouse neighborhood We couldn't get our cars out yesterday and Duke determined the problem needed an electrician to repair. Michael Blair and Emily Amburgey went above and beyond. Even before they began to work on the problem they determined they could give my neighbor and I enough power so we could open our garage doors with our remotes (the manual release wouldn't work either). and get our cars out right away. They were so nice and in my mind - saved the day!read more

I recently called for a potential emergency after hour repair. Cody, the electrician on call, was very professional,... knowledgeable, and helpful. I was calling mainly to see if the problem could wait until the morning (it also involves Duke electric). We agreed mutually that tomorrow would work, but he was prepared to come after hours if we desired. I'm looking forward to working with them tomorrow and will update this review later with work done. After talking to 4 people at Duke, Cody salvaged my night and sanity. 👍read more

I called 5 local electric companies and Reliable Electric gave me the best all around price. From Ryan , who came out... to give me my initial estimate and final price to both technicians, Paul and Justin.Reliable Electric was easy to work with from the beginning - initial estimate/quote to final work description. Both Paul and Justin did an excellent job. From Ryan (the quote) to both Paul and Justin ( Electricians) who did the work... straightening attic wires to code and safety, new attic and garage lights and new exterior wall light boxes installed.. on time, friendly, easy to talk to and ask questions, I highly recommend.I hope to use them again in the very near future for a basement re wire and new main panel upgrade.read more

2020 Update on Second time I called Reliable: Jeremy and Lucas replaced the panel with new 200 amp service. They... were very efficient and polite. A couple days later Justin did a follow up call on a bad outlet that I had wired myself. He diagnosed the problem quickly and was very helpful explaining what he was doing. Cost was reasonable. They were all ok wearing a mask in the house which i really appreciated.________________________________________________Original Review - The office staff that answered my call was helpful and friendly. They were able to send out a technician the next day to solve a problem that was not an emergency. Matt Combs was the service tech. He called early to give me a window of when he would arrive. He was on time, courteous and efficient. He diagnosed my problem quickly and had everything in his truck needed to fixed it. He worked outside on a very cold day and was cheerful the whole time. The cost was reasonable and I would definitely call them again for future work.read more

Paul and Justin upgraded our 100 amp service to a 200 amp moving the meter outside and installed a receptacle for a... back generator outside along with the circuitry. The job they did was perfect and beautiful. They really cleaned up the appearance and I could not be happier! The whole process with Reliable was professional from scheduling, sales (Ryan), and service (Paul and Justin)! Thank you so much. Happy Customer!read more

I scheduled Reliable Electric for multiple electric projects in one visit. Paul and Justin arrived on time, we... discussed the projects, and they went straight to work, checking off each project properly in a timely fashion with attention to detail, They went the extra mile to make some adjustments so that installations looked perfect. They also corrected some known problems from past workers, making the house safer again. I highly recommend Reliable Electric and the team of Paul & Justin and I have already scheduled them for my next electric project.read more

I am new to the area. We needed to remodel a room by inactivating wires and removing outlets. We needed to get ceiling... fan boxes and switches installed. Reliable Electric was great! I was extra impressed with Paul who came the second appointment. He was exceptional! I could tell he knew exactly what to do, was diligent, and worked quickly. He even gave advice on a couple issues we wanted to tackle ourselves. I truly feel like he had our best interests in mind! I recommend Reliable Electric and a special thanks to Paul.read more

Reliable Electric is amazing! True to name, they got the job done in record time, were very polite and did a fantastic... job. Cody and Jordan were awesome! Really took the extra time at the end to make sure my ring device was all set before they left and were so sweet. Now with good work may come a little wait, when I called in they had a 2 week lead time for the install need I had with getting a Ring device setup and power running to it. More than worth the wait I promise you! I know it's been done correctly, they answered all questions and explained what they planned to do and got it done so fast. Will definitely use Reliable Electric again for sure.read more

There was an amazing team of electricians who came out to my house from Reliable Electric. Jordon, Jeramy, Cody, Paul... and Raul were very professional and friendly. They answered several of my questions and gave me advice as to what I needed to meet my needs. They were very knowledgeable about the electrical codes and the old wiring in my house built in 1961. They even joked with my kids and were pleasant to be around. I have used them for multiple jobs and highly recommend them! Thanks guys for a job well done!read more

Jordan was very courteous, and professional. When something extra needed to be done he called to inform me and ask if... it was acceptable to perform the added work. Out of respect he let me know that the weather may delay him a little and it was very much appreciated. Thanks Jordan M! At the end a couple others came to test everything out and they were also very professional. I also want to say that Brandi was professional and kept me informed prior to my scheduled appointment--also giving me a status update on a request for an estimate. Thanks RELIABLE--Based on what I've experienced so far--it looks like things are working as planned and I would recommend that others give you a try.read more
