John is the best electrician I've ever seen!
Replaced ballast and lamps for fluorescent light in garage. Replaced three garage door opener lamps. Replaced lamp socket for large door opener. 11/2016
They did it again! Replaced another garage lamp set (they're getting old) with a better set, and (since my doc said for me to not get on ladders) replaced the bulbs in the garage door openers, since none of them worked. Wait. It gets better. Found out that one was short-circuited and replaced the socket, in five minutes. Probably saved us a fire (if I did it.) I will never do any electric without Able Electric.
Replaced ballast and lamps in garage. Installed three pendents in kitchen over island. Installed new dimmer switch. 07/2016
We bought hanging lamps to go over the kitchen island. Bill called, asked questions, and devised a wiring plan, new switch box, new plate (even got the color right) and John came out, went up to the attic, wired down the inside wall, installed the lamps in the ceiling, replaced the box, and was done without any muss or fuss. Then, as I had asked, replaced two four foot long bulbs, and the ballast in a fluorescent lamp in the garage, in less than five minutes! I've had them before, and thought they were good. They're better!
Installed five Jboxes, three smoke detectors, one CO detector, corrected all illegal wiring, replaced three circuit breakers, wired garbage disposal and installed two GFCI outlets for kitchen plugs. 12/2016
Beyond Happy! Please come back! Will pay for some new switches to be added:-)
Installed ceiling fan, fan box and dual slider switch. Took down ceiling fan and replaced with chandelier that's hanging in other bedroom. Took the ceiling fan and rehung it where the chandelier once was (switched around). Installed dimmer switch for dining light. 07-2016
Jobs took longer than quoted and expected, so bill was higher than expected.
Troubleshot blinking lights in upstairs bedroom. Rewired outlets, replaced defective dimmer and secured one loose receptacle. 05/2016
We have been clients since 1997 and very much appreciate the excellent service Bill and his crew provide. Thank you! Our technician Doug
did a great job of diagnosing our problems and fixing them.

Installed conduit for four exterior flood lights and one chandelier for covered patio. Replaced seven exterior light fixtures around house. 05/2016
Doug walked into a mess of terrible wiring, "maybe not the worst I've see," he took a deep breath, figured out how it should be done to code and safety, called for
supplies, and went to work. What a genius, and what an improvement. When I tore into this patio to get ready to paint and replace the chandelier and saw some awful
splices and no ceiling box, I knew I was in trouble. But, I knew who to call! Thanks for another rescue!
Checked existing wiring to verify up to code. Replaced approximately 8' undersized cable and junction box.
Remounted existing dryer outlet box to wall. Installed conduit over exposed cable in laundry room. Changed
duplex for washer to a 4-plex. 09/2016
The electrician was able to explain what was needed and why - Good Job!
Replaced existing 100A twenty four circuit house sub panel. Installed, replaced and repaired various fixtures, switches and receptacles throughout the house. 01/2016
Kristi was very fair about negotiating final price for additional work that was left unfinished at first visit. She researched what was done with Bill and Doug and was very reasonable. A real pleasure to work with. Thanks.
Upgraded all electrical needed for remodel. 01/2016
Access to attic was left open with access ladder in place over weekend. Also, rainy weather and attic access left open.
Able Electric response: Major remodels involve a variety of subcontractors on the job site. After conversation with the owner, it was determined that some of these issues possibly involve others. This issue has been satisfactorily resolved between both parties. Owner appreciated Able Electric's quick response.
Installed LED can lights on vaulted ceilings, dimmer switches, and trims. 12/2015
You are very lucky to have such a nice and professional worker as Doug. He was very courteous and easy to talk with. He gave us his ideas on lighting, which were perfect. We talked about things other than electrical and he was pleasant to talk with. When he ran into a problem, he thought it out and proceeded to overcome it. He was very concerned not to make any type of mess. He is a very valuable employee and did your company well.
First trip-replaced circuit breakers. Second trip-replaced 125A main panel and subpanel. 12-2014
Comment from Angie's List -
I called Able Electric and talked to a very nice lady who was polite and very knowledgeable. I knew I had the right company. John called me early and said he was on his way. When he arrived he diagnosed the problem in about 10 minutes and explained to me why the electricity was going on and off. He had the parts in his van and replaced the circuit breakers that were faulty. John then checked the rest of the electrical system and will give me an estimate to upgrade the electrical panel. John was extremely professional and knowledgeable and explained everything he was doing. I will use Able Electric anytime I need electrical services.

The electrician arrived early. Got to work immediately and had all the right equipment to do the job. He took down each fixture from our 16' tall ceilings with ease and replaced them with the new fixtures I provided. He did the job in a couple hours as specified. He cleaned up and took away the old fixtures. I was pleased with his work and the company's responsiveness. I will definitely be calling them back to install several exterior fixtures.
We lost power on a Sunday morning - our only day off of the week. We called PG&E and several hours later got the bad news: our main breaker was not working. We called Able Electric and they were the only electricians that you could even talk to - let alone get help from - on a Sunday. Bill went the extra mile to get us the help we needed and we had power back on by Sunday evening! Doug was very friendly, knowledgeable, professional, and reassuring 🙂 He got our breaker fixed quickly and we felt good about the work that was done. Don't call anyone else - call Able Electric! You'll be glad you did.

I just wanted to send you a note to let you know how great the team that you sent to our house was. Doug and Pete were courteous, professional, and all-around nice guys. They did a beautiful job on the lighting and even swept up afterwards.
I have had a lot of service professionals in my during the last month and I very rarely feel as if they treat my house or my family with any respect. Your team from Able Electric was the exception to that rule!
Thank you for the good work.
