All Wright Electric Corp.

"My wife and I maintain a second home, a summer/weekend residence, on the North Fork of Long Island. While not our primary address, we consider it our most important real estate investment. That said, given the storms that we've begun to experience, in addition to the routine power outages that occur on the North Fork, we decided to investigate the installation of a permanent full house generator as a solution. I had done my own superficial research and learned that for our needs I was interested in a Generac Generator. I quickly found an ad for an outfit on the East End in our local paper and made an appointment. While the meeting was certainly pleasant enough, the contractor did not instill the confidence in me that I needed to proceed with this job. Not only was I interested in the specific mechanics of the unit, but even more importantly for me, what was the impact to my home and property? Where would we place the machine (I certainly had my own ideas!)? What would that mean to surrounding landscaping? Was my buried propane tank sufficient in size to fuel the generator. Since I have a finished basement, what impact would there be in that space? And with all of this "construction" what would my additional costs be to put my house and property back in finished shape? My wife and I decided to put the job on hold. The week following that appointment another ad appeared in the local newspaper placed by Rich Wright of AllWright Electric in Mattituck. I immediately called for an appointment. In our meeting Rich listened to our needs. He confirmed my feeling that Gererac was the product to use and what size unit we would need. He explained very clearly how the unit would operate, what we could expect, what the costs were, noise, and what impact the installation process would have on the house and property. He even went so far as to admit that there would be damage to our home and property that would need to be repaired (additional costs!!). We then went outside and discussed the placement of the unit, trenching, and exterior electrical box; all of which were very important to us since we wanted the generator to be as hidden as possible. Our generator has been installed and operational for over a month now. AllWright's service specialist Steve came over for a walk through with us. Noise is not as loud as was expected. Costs were EXACTLY what Rich had said they would be...no hidden expenses. And best of all, the job was the cleanest project ever done at and in my home...EVER! AllWright Electric's team was so neat and so skilled they never had to break through a ceiling or wall in my basement, they carefully and respectfully worked around and within our landscaping, they wore "booties" when in the house, and reconnected the electric power leaving my family confident that the job was done correctly and expertly. Our only additional expense was with my gas company to disconnect and reconnect the gas line to the tank. Rich, thank you for a job well done."

Data & Sound Specialties, Inc.
Electricians
"Jim, Tim and his crew were AMAZING! I initially called them to help set up my wifi connection for my home based consulting business. They made recommendations (all within my budget) and we decided to put in Data Access Ports on all levels of the house. When they initially installed our wires they set it up so we could add more options anytime in the future. We couldn't have been happier with the outcome. After that success we decided to install speakers in several rooms (including outdoor speakers) and TV speakers. They even created a great built-in for our TV which included building and completing the cabinetry. They are EXTREMELY knowledgeable about what they do and how to do it. They went above and beyond the install by painting my ceiling after their work was complete and "hiding" all the cable wires. They took the time to show us how to work all the apps and make changes if needed. I would HIGHLY recommend them for any job and you are welcome to ask me any questions you have about their work."

"We had an additional GFI circuit installed in our basement for 8 outlets. Ferrer's also wired an outside socket to power our electrical box from our generator. The work was completed on schedule and cost exactly as the estimate provided and the quality of the work was outstanding. Overall the service was excellent and the finished project exceeded our expectations.

What do licensed electricians do?


An electrical contractor plans, installs and repairs wiring in structures. He or she works closely with the home’s general contractor or remodeling contractor to determine the specific electrical needs for the project and to ensure that the wiring will meet building codes. An electrical contractor’s job also includes installing and repairing fixtures, switches and other visible components of electrical systems.

With today’s technological needs and advances, many electricians also are trained to install fiber optic and coaxial cables for electronic equipment. Certain electrical companies may design and install data systems and wire for security features such as alarms too. Some electrical contractors specialize in specific areas, such as HVAC, low-voltage appliances and systems and more, so be sure to ask about their training to see if it fits your project needs.

Questions to ask prospective local electricians:


  • How long have you been in the electrical repair business?
  • How many projects like mine have you completed?
  • Who will be working on the project?
  • Are the workers employees or subcontractors?
  • Can you provide me with references?
  • Are you and your employees licensed and insured?
  • What license(s) do you have?
  • How do you charge, and what does that include?
  • Can you give me a written estimate?
  • What do your electrical services include?
  • How will I be charged for parts and materials?
  • Who will make repairs to any structural damage that results from the job?
  • When can this job get done?
  • What happens when the cost exceeds the budget? What about changes to materials or labor pricing?
  • What will I need to provide?
  • Are there any important considerations or concerns you foresee with this project?
