Primary Service Electric is one of the best companies I have worked with. Frank came out for the consultation for a home standby generator and was on time, professional and friendly. He answered all my questions. When it came time to do the installation, his crew was professional, experienced, friendly and took pride in their work. The entire installation process went smooth. I am ready for the next power outage! Highly recommended!

— Jodi Reese

The owner, Frank has been doing electrical work for +25 years. No none sense. Went right to work...figured out my lights flickering, circut that tripped on occasion (but for no reason) and few other concerns. All handled! Very fair cost to fix all. Didn't go searching for other work. Very satisfied and would highly recommend.

—Robert Stern

We were very pleased with our experience with primary service electric. They informed us every step of the way about the progress getting the generator due to the backlog at generac. They did all the preliminary work they could so they were ready to go when the generator came. Frank also helped us set up the computer app that was needed. If you are considering getting a backup generator system you can’t go wrong with primary service.

Electrical FAQ

Here are a few of the questions that we get asked on a regular basis.

Why are the lights in my home flickering?

This may just be the lightbulb. Check that the light bulb is properly screwed in and if there is no difference, then replace the bulb. Is it still flickering? This is an indication that there is a loose wire which should be handled as soon as possible. If you can, try to not use the light until the electrician arrives as loose wires can lead to fires and/or personal injury.

How do I reset a breaker?

When looking at your electrical panel there should be one switch that is not aligned with the others. If you look closely it should show that it is in the off position. To turn the breaker back on you will need to push the breaker towards the off position first and then turn it back towards the on position. The breaker should click back into alignment with the rest others.

What is a GFCI outlet?

Standing for “ground fault circuit interrupter”, a GFCI is an extra safety measure to protect people from potential danger. GFCI are used in bathrooms, kitchens, unfinished basements and any place where the outlet may come in contact with water. The outlet has a mechanism that will turn off the circuit if it detects electricity going down the incorrect path, for example through water or a person. bad
