We appreciate our customers’ feedbacks!
Here’s what some of our customers say about our work.
Alternating Currents is exceptional in their field. They are very professional, knowledgeable, and know in and out of electrical work. They have a courteous and well-informed site crew.
David was very professional and understanding. He did an excellent job and answered all my questions to best of my satisfaction. I feel they can be trusted in emergency if any electrical issues occur. Not to forget the surprise call from the owner who followed up with my job the next day. He assured me he is there if anything goes wrong.
The team at Alternating Currents were among the most professional contractors we have worked with. They were prompt with communication, confirming appointment times ahead of time and showing up on time. They performed an in-home estimate and then scheduled and completed the project within 4 weeks of my initial inquiry. They were professional in their in-person and written communication, updating us as any changes or problems came up. They provided excellent value for the work they performed – installing recessed lighting and moving a hanging fixture. Finally, they were neat and tidy as they worked in our home, applying foot covers and tarps to minimize the mess. It is rare to find contractors who run their small businesses efficiently and professionally. We will look forward to contacting them for our next project.
Alternating Currents did an outstanding, very professional job for us at our school. They had the most critical piece of a multi-layered project that significantly upgraded our data network and established new, state of the art communications throughout our school and church. We needed the work to be flawless and on-time. Over 200 new cable drops, laying Cat6 through our diverse facility, w/ interim connections and required end points. There was a narrow window in the schedule for this work to be done; AltCur accepted that mission and they did it. This team worked tirelessly to accomplish the objectives on time, on budget and with true professionalism. Our staff was impressed with their knowledge, kindness, and attention to detail.
I strongly recommend this company – very competent, good people who do what they say they will do.
Top-noth business with buttoned up employees! Unfortunatly, we have many electrial issues at our home, and we stick with Alternating Currents. Today, James diagnosed the issue with a dedicated microwave outlet. Explained everything throughly and corrected the issue. He then triple checked the wiring in the junction box and aligning areas. He was a pleasure to have in our home too.
I just want to tell you how happy I am with all the work that was done yesterday. Jeff, Aaron and Julian were so helpful, kind and hard working. Our electrician retired and I’m so happy my friends gave me your name and recommended you.
Work done well (for 15-point generator maintenance). They arrive when they say the will. Price about the same as others. Workers friendly and knowledgeable.
I am very pleased with the generator installation on 03/16/2022. All the employees worked together on every aspect of the install, knew what the other worker needed at any step of process, and had all materials and tools on site. I never saw anyone standing around during the 9-10 hour install. I would love to complain or nit-pick on something, but everything was done correctly and to the way I wanted it to be done. The workers were professional and friendly and answered any question that I had. Because of the way all went during the generator install, I immediately hired the company to do additional electric work!
Thanks again for a job well done.
The customer service was excellent, and it was a very pleasant experience, given the whole process of the installation of the generator. They kept me appraised as the day progressed and was happy my power was disconnected for only 2 hours. I also want to reach out about how great the girls are in the office as they called to schedule the install and had an entire checklist to review with me so that I was totally prepared. I can’t think of one improvement. Thank you again!
We used Alternating Currents to install 2 ceiling fans in rooms with no current overhead lights or power. Jim and Dave S. were able to do the work perfectly with no drywall damage. In addition, they noticed one of the fans I bought was repacked incorrectly and missing some parts, so I was able to return it to the store, while they waited to install the new fan. Overall, very happy with the work.
Alternating Currents is extremely professional. They helped us out in an emergency with incredible service, even though we were not a customer of theirs before. We were so happy with the service that we had them do a scheduled job for us next. Before all the work, Marty came out, and we talked over all of the options. They did the work they promised in a very timely manner. We like them also because they are big enough to handle any projects we would come up with, while at the same time, they make it personal. We will have them do all of our electrical work in the future.
I cannot tell you how pleased I was with your employees and the work that they did. They were efficient, clean, knowledgeable, and a pleasure to have them working in my house. I’m sure you are proud of your employees and the way they represent both you and your company. I will highly recommend you to anyone needing electrical service.
You will appreciate Alternating Currents, GE company. They installed our new generator in Autumn. It was the best experience through all our remodeling process. The owner is the former fireman. He is a MAN of DIGNITY, PROFESSIONALISM, HONESTY, DEDICATION, PERFECTIONSISM!
Alternating Currents installed replacement interconnected smoke alarms including two combination carbon monoxide/smoke alarm units. Everyone I spoke with from start to end of the project was professional and personable. The cost was reasonable and I was able to schedule service easily. The tech who did the installation (Jim) was great. He explained what he was doing, was careful and respectful about my property. I enjoyed meeting him and feel he did the work quickly and well. I highly recommend Alternating Currents based on my experience.
Thank you very much for your honesty, professionalism, dedication, patience, kindness, willingness to provide the service, which complies with the most strict requirements of the most demanding inspectors. YOU ARE AN EXCEPTIONAL COMPANY!!! THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!
I am very pleased with the response I received from the office personnel. The installer of the Generac Unit was very personable and answered all of my questions. The electricians were efficient and also took the time to explain the fuse box to me and what happens when the electricity goes off. They went above and beyond to help me program the Mobile Link monitoring system. I really appreciate how pleasant, efficient, and personable everyone was.
So if I were to rate your company on a scale of 1 to 10, I would want to rate it higher than 10. Your employees arrived on time, were professional, clean cut, polite and explained everything to me. I also asked lots of questions which they didn’t mind answering. At payment time, I was told my balance would be less than I expected because all of the estimated work didn’t need to be done. I had no idea about them not needing to do this work and am sure I could have been taken advantage of, and overcharged, by someone not so honest. Thank you for all of your help.
You guys are so great! Thank you so much for your help at our home. Look forward to working with you again in the future.
To say the work was exemplary would be an understatement! But the most impressive part was the professionalism of Efrain and Jeff. He walked me through the project before starting, and it was spectacular!
This is my third time using Alternating Currents. I would strongly recommend this company. I had a major problem with my electricity and my detached garage. After working with several other electrical companies, they were able to give me a permanent solution. I call them for all my electrical needs!
Thank you so much. That was one of the best home service visits I’ve had in recent years.
I feel in such good hands to have your company taking care of my home’s electrical. I feel safe.
Workers were respectful, efficient, accommodating, cleaned up thoroughly.
We are completely satisfied with the quality of service that we get from Alternating Currents.
Always provides great service at a fair price – one time, every time.
Cal, the electrician, came at the agreed time to install a bathroom fan. He was very professional and courteous; the fan works and looks great, no damage to the drywall. Before he started, Cal put down tarps and he vacuum-cleaned after he finished, so that everything looked very clean. Great job!
I recently contracted Alternating Currents Corporation, Glen Ellyn, Illinois, to update electrical needs throughout a large portion of my home. Alternating currents sent Jeff to do the job. Without a doubt, Jeff is one of the most capable skilled-craftsmen with whom I have ever worked. He is verbally adept, courteous, conscientious, and consistently the consummate professional. Additionally, it was my pleasure and good fortune to have had Jeff tasked with fulfilling my electrical requests because not only did he demonstrate competence in every aspect of his work, he is one of the most skilled and exemplary problem-solvers with whom I have ever known.
If you have only minor electrical needs or if your home or office requires sophisticated electrical work, call Alternating Currents Corporation of Glen Ellyn and ask for JEFF. Truly, Jeff and Alternating Currents are the BEST OF THE BEST!
Fantastic. Marty got us a quote the day I called him, and followed up with me the next day to make sure I got it. The other two companies I called never even called me back. Marty was quick to come out to our house and get our power back. He knew that without our power we were basically homeless, so did everything he could to get us back on the grid.
Alternating Currents came out to our house to fix a blown circuit. It turned out to be a quick fix, but their installer stayed and checked out a couple of other things that he saw needed attention. He noticed that two of our outside lines were too close together and could cause a big problem. We had not noticed, but he was able to fix that too in this visit, which gave us a peace of mind as we go into the winter season dodging a potential problem. Thank you for the great customer service!
The installers did a great job and worked quickly. They were very courteous and thorough. Went above and beyond.
The company has serviced our needs for the past 20 years. They’ve done a fast, excellent job every time we’ve needed them!
David and Cal did a great job! Showed up on time. Quick turnaround. Clean, professional, and reasonable pricing. Highly recommended. Would definitely hire again. Thanks!
I give my highest compliments to your technicians. They never stopped working for a minute, even when I offered them drinks. They explained every step very well and in detailed manner. They refused tips when offered.
I just wanted to say thank you very much for the service I received from you and your company yesterday. You were great in communicating with me, and your crew was just as polite and professional. Will talk to you again when I need an electrician.
They came up with a great solution for my needs. Second time I’ve used them.
Cal was our electrician, and I found him to be very professional. He laid down a protective blanket on our wood floor prior starting the job. We are very satisfied with the job of hanging our new chandelier. I would recommend Cal and your company to anyone.
I expressed my appreciation to your team this afternoon. They did a wonderful job. You were a pleasure to work with. I will definitely recommend your company to any potential customers that are looking for help (with a generator install). Again, thanks to you and your entire team.
I had Cal out to access my dining room chandelier. After he thoughly troubleshot the problem, he found out it was the actual fixture that was defected. After purchasing another chandelier a week later, Cal came to install it the next morning. He was quick and efficient, and I would not call anyone else whenever I am in need of an electrician in the future. Thank you Alternating Currents!
Your service man Cal did me a service, and he was solid with his ethical take on doing his job well and he did. He literally went the extra mile by going to the hardware store for a part for me, rather than disconnecting a hanging lamp and taking it in. What he did with tools-of-the-trade would have been beyond me at any time. Skilled, polite, and aimed to please. It speaks well of YOUR company that you employ people of his caliber.
Everything was completed on time. They were professional in coordinating with other trades at the work place. Their attention to detail is exceptional.
Dave, our guy, is terrific! He is very professional and easy to work with. I trust his work.
Just want to thank you for sending David and Simon out for wiring and ceiling fan installation. They were the best – explained, asked for our input, etc. Real professionals. And very customer focused. Again, thank you!
I wanted to commend your electrician’s (Cal) professionalism, efficiency, and politeness. I will call your company for sure in the future when I need electrical services.
Thank you for all of your assistance throughout this process as well as quick response! Everything went swimmingly yesterday, and the baler now is hooked up and functioning!
I originally called Alternating Currents for a couple of breakers that kept tripping. They responded to my house the same day I called, and did some troubleshooting. Turns out that they may have saved me from a serious attic fire. Wires arched in my conduit. Burnt my ceiling joist and insulation. They went above and beyond to keep me and my family safe. I will have them upgrade my electric service, and highly recommend them to anyone for work. Very professional!
Let me say how happy we are with the work performed last Friday. It really is excellent.
Cal was very nice to work with. He left my house cleaner than it was! I will definitely look to Alternating Currents for future needs.
Joshua did a fantastic job. He was so polite and professional and did a great job explaining everything to me in layman’s terms. Everything was fixed quickly. This is our second time using Alternating Currents, and we have been very pleased with both experiences.
Both Josh and Dean were excellent. They were very respectful, patient and wonderful to work with. I’ll be requesting them for future jobs at my home.
We are very happy with the work done by your crew – no complaints. I was impressed that they completed the work in a single day, and stayed a bit longer to make sure it was done.
Electrician did a great job, and the floor heater now works! Thanks!
Great customer service.
Both installers who came out today did a great job. They were prompt, polite, and professional. Glad I found you guys.
Great service provided by friendly and professional electricians. Our go-to company for anything electrical!
I find the office staff very efficient and pleasant to work with!
Most impressed with both of the installers who came to our home. Hard working and very knowledgeable. They are both very good representatives of your organization.
It’s the detailed attention to the projects and thinking about the best approach that sets your team apart. Thanks!
Thank you for your help in fixing a sudden onset problem. It was a positive and professional experience from my first contact. The estimate and contract were easy to understand. The schedulers worked with me to expedite the visits as I needed one to diagnosis and one to remedy the problem. The electrician, Dave, was personable and focused. It was a tricky problem. but he found it and worked out a solution. I also appreciate being given referrals for drywall repair.
Quality work. Need to better coordinate site estimate details with installing electrician. Otherwise, the final solution exceeded expectations.
On time, very knowledgeable, and reasonably priced. Would use them again.
We’ve had issues finding reliable and trustworthy businesses to work with for the varying maintenance needs of the house. However, you and Alternating Currents have been the one company in all the different areas (plumbing, electrical, interior like drywall, tiling, etc) that we trust – mostly based on meeting and talking with you when you were out here last year – and we have enjoyed working with you guys unlike almost any other contractor, etc that we’ve had out here. I refer you to everyone I know that mentions electrical needs around here.
Cal was efficient, polite, and did a great job.
Dave did a really great job repairing our recent outage problem. A lot of circuits involved, but he selected the right one that was causing our problem. Thanks Dave.
From the office staff to the electricians, everyone is very professional. Everyone showed up on time for both the estimate and the installation. They worked quietly and neatly, and we are very happy with the results.
Alternating Current was recommended to us by a friend in the contracting business. He knows good work when he sees it, and he used you for his own home remodeling. Marty and the team have been great, and the inside team has been extremely helpful when it comes to buttoning down the details of our jobs. We’ve already recommended you to some friends who need electrical work, and will be sure to do so in the future.
I have been a customer of AC since moving to the Western suburbs in 1999. I was initially attracted by the name, and since have been loyal to Marty and the crew for over a dozen projects in my home and the homes of both daughters. We’ve enlisted their expertise for everything from minor trouble shooting to major rewiring and upgrading the service panel. AC has always provided extreme safety conscious methods identifying serious faults and suggesting and correcting problem connections.
The lights are exactly what I wanted. Please thank Marty and the crew. We are thrilled with the result.
Thank you again for your help! I’ll be referring anyone who asks to you guys. It has truly been a great experience working with everyone!
I have an older home with an electrical issue and the staff of Alternating Currents came up with three creative and decorative solutions for me to chose from – that is truly appreciated services.
You guys were great – 3rd electrician we’ve had trying to fix our kitchen under-cabinet lighting, and apparently the first to actually know what you’re doing!
Thanks for addressing my project very quickly and efficiently. You are such a professional operation.
The electricians were outstanding. Did very quality work, were very friendly, and the fixtures were hung perfectly.
The service person was on time and courteous. He worked fast and was knowledgeable about the product and services required. I would highly recommend your company to anyone that needs generator servicing.
Just a note to thank you for quality work. Shout out to Jeff and Christian for exceptional electrical service at my rental property
Exceptional job by David. Very personable and the attention to detail was outstanding (for a generator 15-point maintenance). Thank you!
You guys did a great job today at my house. Really pleased with the quality of service.
Alternating Currents responds timely when safety is an issue. Always provides great customer service from the front office to the electrician performing the service. Very customer-oriented. Highly recommend.
I have complete confidence that you and your team will see to it that my generator is always ready to supply my home with the power it needs when the occasion arises. You can also add to that, all those individuals that I have referred to your company for their generator installation and back-up service, because they have let me know that they too were very happy with the installation and the ongoing service of their units. So thank you from all of us.
We live in a 90-year-old house and over the last 20 years have had a lot of work done, and this company has been the best. Marty did a great job providing us a detailed bid since we had so much work to be done. The electricians worked efficiently and full days. They were great at explaining our options in our 90-year-old house. Once done, they cleaned up, and I would have never known they were here! I would highly recommend them.
I used them to install some can lights and run a new line to my pump room in the basement. I quoted out a few other places, and AC was the lowest by $100. Office staff and electricians were extremely professional all around. They were honest too. Told me I didn’t need a new receptacle in my basement, but I did it anyway for my own reasons. Would recommend them to anyone.
I recommend Alternating Currents. They did some exterior work for me in December, and we just had them come back to install some extra plugs in the house. Rudin is the nicest guy ever.
Alternating Currents did an excellent job. They completed the work in an organized, professional manner, keeping us in the loop every step of the way to ensure the work would meet our satisfaction. They were able to meet schedule constrains and were very careful not to cause damage in our home. There were some issues due to the existing components of the home. They were helpful in coming up with solutions to the issues, and their owner, Marty, was very knowledgeable and a great resource.
My entire family loves you right now. No power…no worries! Generator works like a champ!
You have been great over the years. Your people are first class. I will strongly recommend you to the new owner and others.
We are very satisfied with the service provided. The two young men that did the work were very courteous and professional. We liked the way they cleaned up after the job. We will continue to use you in the future.
Rudin did a nice job and very pleasant and courteous. He’s a keeper!
Just to let you know I was so impressed with the two men (Jeff and Bob) who came to do the work. Turned out so well and they were very neat. I am happy to recommend your firm.
Everyone loves the new LED (parking lot) light here at Emergency Veterinary Services. Thanks for making me a hero!
We have always had EXCELLENT service from all your professionals. I could have easily sent an email each time! I do want to share that I was so impressed with Rudin! As a homeowner, you don’t usually know who will be coming into your home and need to “trust” this person to do their best. I knew right away that Rudin was going to do a great job. He’s very professional, communicates well, has a greater personality, and has a strong work ethic and level of perfection with his work. Thank you so much for sending him!
A very heartfelt and sincere “thank you” to Rudin and his partner for doing an outstanding job installing our new ceiling fan and new chandelier in the foyer. The latter was not scheduled, but Rudin called the office and they said that while they were there to go ahead and install. Went out of their way to accommodate!! The work was outstanding and I now have less cobwebs than I did before they arrived. So very appreciative!! I would recommend this company to anyone!!!! A very satisfied customer.
Thanks to the team at ACC. We love our new light!
We appreciated you working with us to provide the most efficient solution for our generator needs. You went beyond satisfactory work to excellence. Thank you!
You have a great and very professional and very upbeat staff! You never know who might be coming into your home and they were wonderful.
I wanted to say how glad I was to find you. David was upbeat, positive, and great at servicing the generator. I was worried about finding someone to service it, and so glad I found you. David represents your company very well.
Thanks for all of the work that Alternating Currents put into my generator installation. Your team worked hard, fast and safely during my install. I have found a new electrician to work with me, I appreciate that, and will recommend you to whomever needs electrical work. I definitely chose the right company for the install! Keep doing what you do and your business will fourish.
I complement you and your workmen. They performed the tasks well in brutally cold conditions. I am pleased to have the extra outlets and switches. The coach lights and the attic lights are on their own switches. I will be anxious to complete the new panel box when the weather is more mild. I feel I chose the right contractor for this job. Thanks.
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.
Their electrician was great. Honest and able to explain what’s-what in laymen’s terms. Highly recommend.
They did all the electrical for our basement that we finished, approx. 1,600.00 sq. ft. and additional jobs.They were always on-time, friendly and did great work! We are very happy we used Alternating Currents and found them on Angie’s List. I would definitely recommend them for any project big or small!! Very happy with the work, friendly demeanor and punctuality.
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.
They were responsive from my first call, and kept up good communications throughout, and completed the job quickly and efficiently. Everyone of the crew were helpful, Dave, Marty, Jeff and Greg. Appreciated the great service!
I contacted Alternating Currents about an outdoor lighting issue. They were very quick to respond and asked a few questions. Marty called me with a followup and suggested I check something manually as it is often the root of similar issues, rather than paying for someone to come out. Turns out it WAS a simple fix and I really appreciate their helpfulness and honesty. I won’t hesitate to call them the next time I need electrical help!
Installed 5 recessed lights in our family room, a ceiling fan in our bedroom and an exhaust fan I our master bath. Alt Currents was professional, efficient and worked clean!
Installed 4 new smoke detectors and replaced 5 existing. Interconnected all alarms. Rudin and David installed everything in about 3 hours. They both arrived on time and did a great job with our installation. One existing detector didn’t have a signal wire, but they were able to trace the conduit through the correct junctions and pull new wire to interconnect the alarm with the others.
Annual oil change and maintenance to my generator. Went well, professional, courteous and neat!
They had to replace the exterior outlet because it wasn’t working. It was fine. There’s no problem. They were very efficient and speedy. I called them and they came out to do the job. It’s an easy job. They’re done in 10 to 15 minutes.
Re wire, lights, found buried box, outdoor lights. Great.
Installed sensor for outdoor lights so they will turn on automatically in low-light situations; installed overhead light; adjusted a few outlets; gave estimate and advice on whole-house surge protector. We have used Alternating Currents multiple times now, and they are always prompt, professional, fair in price, and do excellent work. We couldn’t be more pleased.
Found the cause of our partial loss of power. Excellent service. Have used them in the past and I will in the future.
Very responsive and helpful, much appreciated!
Installed conduit with outlets in crawlspace along with switch. Went very well. I have used this electrician for all of my electrical needs and have not been disappointed. I referred them to a member of my family and they were pleased as well. I will continue to use in the future. Professional installation and no issues at all. Looks great and was installed as discussed with the electrician.
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.
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.
The only shock you will get from having Alternating Currents Corporation service your electrical needs is seeing how high quality work can be done for you at a very reasonable cost. I wish all businesses could operate like them!
