Mr. Electric Gives Back to the Community


By Karen McBride

Mr. Electric offers residential and commercial repair and installation. Electrical emergencies, such as a blown fuse box or power outage, can happen at any time, and the licensed electricians are available to help you 24 hours a day.

Additional services include ballast and bulb replacement, bathroom and kitchen lighting, recessed lighting, transformers, lighting control, and more. Ceiling fans can add style and functionality to a room but can be a challenge to install, and it’s best to leave this to the experts as well.

Their expertise is not limited to indoor lighting. The qualified service professionals can install motion sensors, landscape lighting, and even holiday lighting. For those who want the “fun without the fuss”, the service professionals at Mr. Electric can install the lights before the holidays, and later take them down.

You don’t want to take any chances with safety in your home. Carbon monoxide and smoke detectors are a necessity, and Mr. Electric can install them for you.
