Guys were on time, professional and courteous.  Got it done quickly and did what was asked.  They even troubleshot another problem and figured it out and fixed it too.  Would definitely use them again.

Extremely well.  The team was professional, helpful, very nice, and efficient.  They maintained a clean work-site, communicated clearly and respectfully, and did a quality job.  All of the details were minded including boot covers while walking through and testing every switch and receptacle in the house, the box was nicely mounted and assorted items such as sprinkler system, etc neatly organized and re-connected.  The team even addressed my DIY questions with enthusiasm.

Yea, they're expensive and I could have gotten the work done for less, but I would use them again.  In this case, the premium made sense.

I have used Effective Electric on a number of occasions. They are prompt, courteous, professional and are always able to take care of any issues or remodeling very quickly.

In fact, on this occasion the wire sticking out of the ground was not live, but just the fact that they got to my home quickly and let me know - as well as removing the wire - put my mind at ease. They also charged me the minimum for this call, which took 1/2-hour.

On another occasion that involved remodeling, they discovered that a live wire had been spliced into in order to get current into another room. Because this could have caused a fire, (and probably would NOT have been covered by insurance even though a prior owner had had this done,) I was EXTREMELY grateful for their discovery (and, of course, letting me know and showing it to me,) and they remedied the issue immediately.

They are my go-to electricians. A bit pricey, (although they may not be and may well be the same as others, but I am unwilling to shop around,) but well worth it!

Right from my first call to Effective Electric i knew this was a professional well run company. Barbara was so helpful on the phone and made sure I knew all the fee's in advance. She even gave me an email address to send pictures of my electrical boxes so the repair person was prepared. They showed up on time, professional and courteous. They efficiently confirmed my questions about the wiring of my well system and went above and beyond in checking the system. It was so pleasurable to deal with such a great company.

Butch was great, he came over to give me a quote for a small hook up. Things didn't go to plan on my end, Butch pointed out problems a previous contractor had missed.

We ended up not needing our hook up so we never hired Butch, but he will be my first phone call, whenever i need an electrician. He was patient, knowledgable and took pride in his industry.

You have an excellent, well performed, good manner and considerate group of employee. The work was done professionally. We will refer your company to anyone who needs to have electrical work done in his/her house....

I contacted Butch through their company website describing the service I wanted. He responded promptly and gave me a detailed explanation of the work that would be done and an estimate. I wanted a generator panel installed that can be connected to a portable generator in the event of a power outage. The work was scheduled within one week. The crew showed up on time and were helpful in answering all of my questions. All work was completed to my satisfaction and I can now power the house with a generator when needed....

We closed on our new home in Tuckahoe right in the middle of the Sandy aftermath. we had three quotes for an extensive rewire in the house, which had old knob and tube and no overhead lights. Butch was the only electrician who i didn’t have to hound – he was responsive, descriptive and detailed. He was flexible and worked with us to get the work into our budget. We ended up at 11k for three floors on central lighting, sconces and misc wiring. he and his employees were on-time, worked hard and were pleasant people to have in the house. it was complete mayhem with movers and plasterers and they were very accommodating and flexible. Butch checked on the work and none of his guys seemed to mind answering questions which was helpful to someone that has never dealt with wiring. i was more than impressed with Effective Electric and plan on using them again.

Thank you so much for the work you and your team have done at my home this year. The work adding the backup generator to our home was done exactly as we wanted. Your guys, Jason and Jason, worked with us to ensure that all of the circuits we requested were connected to the generator. They were also very polite and explained to us (more than once) exactly how the generator works and what we needed to do to maintain the unit. We were also pleased with the replacement of our bathroom fan. The guys were very neat and made sure that, even though they needed to go in and out of the house several times, they did not bring in any dirt on their shoes by ALWAYS wearing shoe covers. They needed to remove and replace a piece of drywall with this job and they did it very neatly so that we only needed to do a small bit of touch up painting after they were done. This was better than we expected! I will not hesitate to call you whenever we need electrical work done in our home! And we will recommend your company to neighbors whenever we have the chance.
