Last night, the power in my home went out.
At first, I thought it may have just been a fuse that had been blown, but after fiddling with the electrical box, flipping switches on and off, and realizing absolutely everywhere in the house had no power, something else must have been the problem.
I called BC Hydro first to see if they could come take a look and find the potential problem. No luck.
So, first thing this morning, I called Houle Electric Ltd. and the receptionist told me she could have someone there within the next hour. Just under an hour later, I got a call from the Service Electrician, Ian and he was already outside. I showed him the electrical box and explained the situation.
Within minutes, he knew that it was a problem with the main breaker and that it would need to be changed. He quoted me $300 for the job.
He left to go pick up a new main breaker switch at Home Depot and within 25 minutes, he was back. He installed the new breaker timely and efficiently. Within minutes, I had power again.
He was extremely friendly and educated, gave me his business card at the end explaining if anything else happens to give him a call and he'll come back.
The price after tax came to $275 which was a decent price for 2 hours work plus the cost of the new switch.
I was very pleased with the professionalism and end result.
I will definitely be calling Houle Electric Ltd. again next time I have an electrical issue. Couldn't have asked for better service. Thank you!
