Installation of chandelier in dining room

The installers arrived on time as scheduled. Very polite and courteous. Covered their outside shoes before walking through to the dining room. Set up a tarp, measured and consulted us on preferred height from the table. Once installed, made sure the bulbs were properly installed, the dimmer worked and the glass globes had no fingerprint marks. Packed away all the protective material back in the box. Very efficient and professional from beginning to end.

Small project electrical work

Recently a Ring Electric Crew did some small electrical jobs around our house (Bathroom fan replacement, door bell work, etc). The crew did an incredible job! Great communication and a great service experience. Really appreciate the great work and we will certainly be using Ring Electric again for future projects.

Complete rewiring of a 1960s side-split house!

Ring Electric did a great job with our rewire which included all-new wiring, of course, replacing old switches and outlets with modern ones, adding outlets where needed to bring rooms up to code, adding ceiling fans and replacing old light fixtures with three dozens potlights. They were careful to keep our old-school swirl ceilings intact which we greatly appreciated. A new 200 Amp panel was installed and the old fuse panel was updated and became a pony panel. Electrical power coming into the home was relocated to the other side of the home instead of over the backyard, a job that required working closely with Ottawa Hydro. We had two to six electricians working at all times. The whole team was professional, knowledgeable, respectful and keen to deliver on our more specific requests. Our house easily passed ESA certification. Highly recommend!

Professional, knowledgeable and courteous

The work assessment flagged issues that we were already aware of - as well as other issues that surprised us. Recommendations and suggestions were given. Our home needed a complete rewiring of the older section, updating lighting fixtures, adding proper lighting in the garage, the list goes on.
What seemed to be a big deal was all in a day's work for the team; in just one day, they cleaned up the very messy basement wiring and added proper lighting as a 'warmup exercise' as they made their way upstairs. Although they had to make several holes in the walls and ceilings to fish new wiring through in the upstairs rooms and bedrooms, they were careful about leaving wallpapered ceilings and walls intact by drilling holes in a closet instead. Not only that, but there was hardly a speck of dust anywhere to be seen after they cleaned up. Amazing. It's too bad that they don't have a (sub-)contractor to patch the holes after a major project like this.
The staff was incredibly understanding: every issue that seemed complicated was met with 'we can do that', or 'done', or 'we can work around that'. Even making payments was easy.
We hadn't received our new lighting fixtures when the crew was on site, but that wasn't a problem: they'll be back in a few weeks to finish the job.
Rewiring a home is a major project, and we were confident right from the start that Ring Electric was going to do a good job. They did an excellent job, and it was a pleasure to work with everyone. Highly recommended.

Back-up generator panel

After the big May storm left us with no power for several days, I wanted a complete stand alone back up generator fed panel.
The panel fed my Natural Gas furnace and hot water tank and had feeds for fridges and freezers.
This set up was assisted by the great people at Ring Electric.
Fully knowledgeable, and focused on meeting my needs.
I have used them several times and refuse to use anyone else.

Added GFCIs, panel surge protector, ceiling lights and potlights...

From the outset, Ring Electric showed they were the best electricians that I've dealt with (4 others in the past). Their booking and quoting system is very efficient and Bryan is very knowledgeable and prompt with the site visit and quotes.

The crews worked very well together (I believe there was an apprentice or two on site as well). They ensured the least amount of intrusion/ damage / exploratory damage was done while adding fixtures and pot lights to my 60s bungalow.

They cleaned up far better than any other contractor I've had in my house. And the dialogue between them was very professional, light hearted and instructional (to the younger crew members) in nature as well (I'm a teacher and it's good to see knowledge in the trades being passed on).

I'd definitely recommend Ring Electric to anyone again and we will be using them in the future for our electrical needs!

UPDATE: A switch needed attention a few months later. Bryan came the next day and fixed it. Great follow-up service too!

No headaches, no problems

I hired Ring Electric to take down some existing fixtures, and to move them to a new location. They were then to install a new fixture, replace some defective pot lights, and install a dimmer. The workers were punctual, friendly, efficient and did everything I requested to my satisfaction. They followed protocols, cleaned up after themselves, and did not leave me any reason to call them back. The price I was quoted was spot on, no surprises or "extra charges". I would highly recommend these people if you want a job done with no residual headache.

2nd Floor Ceiling Chandelier installation

We needed a ceiling chandelier installed in an open, curved 2nd floor stairway and found it so difficult to find a reliable electrician, and Ring Electric came to the rescue. I called them on Monday and they came the very next day on Tuesday to do the installation. The technicians were friendly, quick, clean, worked safely, followed all Covid protocols, and the workmanship was awesome. Our chandelier was a previously loved unit from my sister and I wasn't sure we had all the parts but the technicians were able to verify it and provide any small missing hardware. The installation is solid, looks great, and works perfectly. The whole process was easy, fast, and convenient. We couldn't ask for anything more. We're a very happy customer and would highly recommend them! Thanks Ring Electric!

Panel replacement

After receiving an assessment of the state of our panel during a review in October 2021 in advance of some work we requested, we agreed to an estimate for panel replacement in December. The work was scheduled and then completed in early January 2022. Again the team provided a clear explanation of the work and also reviewed when completed.

Team members were polite, professional and interested in our feedback.

Should we need any additional work, we will call Ring.

200 amp panel installation, circuit indentification

The inspection report from our recently purchased older home identified the electrical panel and circuit irregularities as requiring immediate attention. In view of this, I contacted Ring Electric over the internet because they specialized in older home rewiring plus they had great reviews.
Ring Electric’s performance exceeded my expectations. The crew was cheerful, respectful, highly knowledgeable and diligent. Without hesitation, I would recommend Ring Electric to anyone needing electrical work.
