Customer Service is our #1 Priority
Our goal is to provide outstanding service by responding promptly to telephone calls and email messages, being onsite when scheduled, and keeping the lines of communication always open with our customers. During times when we are away from the office, we have our emergency telephone/text number of 630-675-4472 available for our customers. Rest assured, we want you to know that we are here when you need an electrician or service on your generator.
The provider conducted electrical work in our older home. Specifically, wiring for fixtures in our ceiling so we can install overhead ceiling lights/fans in 4 rooms that do not have any overhead lighting in them currently. The provider also rewired the switches in each of those four rooms to work with the overhead lighting (versus how the switch currently turns on/off random socket plugs throughout the house). The provider identified an out of code wiring in a room that the previous had installed improperly and corrected it. HIGHLY RECOMMEND this electrician. After researching and contacting several “A” rated electricians on Angie’s list, we were shocked at the varying estimated cost between vendors. Alternating Currents responded to our inquiry for an estimate immediately. The estimate was emailed with detailed descriptions of the work to be done and the estimated cost. We set up a date/time for the following week and Jim G. and David B. arrived exactly at the scheduled time. Not only were they prompt, but they jumped right to work and were professional and friendly. During their work they identified an outdated and “out of code” wiring setup in our master bedroom. They explained what their concern was and they provided different options to resolve the issue (as well as the expected cost). When we told them how we would like to resolve the issue, they contacted their supervisor and received immediate approval to do the work (no waiting around or setting up a follow up visit). The work was done exactly how we wanted it and everything looks great. No mess left behind and the work was completed extremely fast. We paid exactly the amount provided in the estimate – again, they were the lowest estimate of several electricians we contacted. I would absolutely recommend this provider to a friend and if I ever need further electrical work, I will be using this Alternating Currents Corp.
We hired Alternating Currents to install an electrical box and mount a 55" TV above our fireplace. Marty was very professional and clear about the services to be performed and expectations. The crew was courteous and efficient, arriving on time and they ensured that the job was done exactly as requested.
They relocated the junction box for my hot tub so that it was within the village code.
Marty was great to work with. He is a very honest and ethical contractor. He was very punctual when he came to estimate the job and also when they came to complete the work. The two electricians he had do the work were great. We are getting ready to sell our house. I'm sure there will be electrical items on the home inspection that we will need to fix. I will be calling them to take care of those items. Marty is a first responder that has built a very professional business. I would highly recommend using them for your electrical projects.
Replace and upgrade breaker box to a 200-amp, 40-opening ITE panel board and needed breakers.
Also installed 1 bonding wire for the hot, cold, and gas pipes located at the hot water tank. The crew arrived promptly at 8am, including Marty, the owner. He and 2-3 electricians worked on pulling the 200 amp service into the meter, while another crew of 2 worked on breaker box in the garage. It was 60, but rainy and windy, miserable working on the outside but at least the 200 amp service was in place no trenching required. The crew pulled an extension line into my crawl space to keep my sump running, which was one of my concerns. Before Marty left around 2pm, he went over the work outside which would require inspection by my village and Com Ed. The remaining crew (2-3) worked on the panel box, and tested each line. We went over the breaker numbering so I could update my detailed reference sheet. Since this has to be inspected, the walls were left open. Dry wall patching is owner's responsibility, not a big deal. They left the area clean and vacuumed up the dry wall debris before they left at 4pm. Second time I used them; first was for fan installation and correction of 3 way switch issues, which really were issues at the panel. This lead to replacing an aging (40 year old) panel that clearly was turning into a risk. I've had this on my to do for a while and glad it's done. I'd recommend this firm to anyone in the western suburbs; crew was polite, professional, and efficient.
You have been great over the years. Your people are first class. I will strongly recommend you to the new owner and others.
