Zel Electric Review

"When a circuit breaker trips it can look like it's still on and lead you to think you reset it when you didn't. Turn each and every breaker off and back on before calling an electrician."

I've used Zel Electric for many years. They are very, very responsible. I also have a landscaping company and on many occasions I've recommended them to my clients. Years ago they did a huge job at my property and I have never had any trouble with it.

I have worked with Zel Electric for years and they are the only electricians I feel comfortable recommending to my clients. Henry is very clean at his work. The last time I recommended him to a customer it was for a job that I thought was going to be very costly and difficult. Henry showed up and figured out a solution quickly and easily and everything was working perfectly. He always answers the phone and shows up on time, in part because Wendy in their office keeps them very organized. Zel Electric’s pricing is always fair. My customers thank me for sending Henry to them. That is so important to me because it’s my reputation on the line, too.

I had a couple of issues with my lights and some outlets. A friend of mine referred Zel Electric to me. They did a really good job. They have very good prices and it’s easy to communicate with them. They were very clean and organized. Before them another company had come over to do a few things and they left a huge mess with cut wires all over. Not Zel Electric. They cleaned up everything. After they were done, they followed up with me to make sure everything was working fine! I highly recommend them!

I am a contractor and have worked with Zel Electric professionally and at my own house for a about five years now. I never use anyone else. I can do some electrical work, but when it is a big job, like panel upgrades, troubleshooting or rewiring a house, I call German or Henry. I always have a good experience with them. Their prices are fair or better. They are never late and when they schedule you it’s never too far out. At my house, they have installed a new electric panel, done dedicated circuits, and installed and wired electric gates. They are really good at low voltage, too. They show up, do clean work and stick to their prices. Henry works with me the most lately and he goes above and beyond for me and my customers.

Zel Electric is amazing. Henry has worked with me the most. He installed two beautiful chandeliers in my home, and installed a charger for my Tesla. Two weeks ago Henry installed a 220 outlet in my neighbor’s house for his new Tesla. Henry doesn’t overcharge you or try to sell you on any extra work. I know he will do a good job. He is always there at the time he says and the job takes the amount of time he tells you. And he is so clean! I have had to clean up after other contractors when they left fingerprints on the walls and ceiling. Henry is a very clean and neat worker. My house is new so that was major for me.
