    Let me start this email with a few items of praise that are often forgotten. We’re all sometimes too quick to point out the bad and not so quick to point out the good.  First, the entire process of dealing with your company has been not just painless, but pleasant as well. Thank you for that.  Second, I had to leave the job yesterday before your men finished working and I expected the job to need some cleaning when I arrived today as we are very particular about the appearance of our projects (this customer is as well). When I arrived, the guys had not only neatened up, but carefully restacked things they had to move, picked up after themselves, put all of the trash into the dumpster and swept the floor. In my experience, this is highly unusual for electrical contractors or almost any subcontractor that we have dealt with in the Charlotte area. Please thank those gentlemen on my behalf.  Since the homeowner is acting as his own construction manager on this project and pulled his own permits it was unnecessary for us to pull an electrical permit as he, technically, would have been allowed to do the wiring on his own as long as it was up to code. The York County electrical inspector did his rough inspection today and the work passed. The insulators are completing their part of the project today and tomorrow and the HVAC team will be done with their rough in this weekend as well. The balance of the job will be awaiting the windows and doors which are not due to arrive until the second week of February (because the homeowner wanted the walls framed before he placed the order). I will keep you informed of the progress and when you will be able to return to complete your part of the project.  Finally, to the business part of this email; the customer added some items to the project including a flood light and some receptacles. Please send us the invoice for these items at your earliest convenience so I can invoice the customer as soon as possible as well.  Thanks again for a pleasant experience all around.

  • Elizabeth Minnich,
    Yesterday, January 15, Tommy and Tyler came to diagnose and then fix several household problems for us.  We needed their expertise, experience, and skill, and they came through on a high level.  I should also say that, as it turned out, we had more on our list for them to do than I had mentioned when I made the appointment (for which I apologize — I should have called again).  Tommy and Tyler just took in the changes, figured out with us how to proceed, and got to work efficiently and effectively.

    I also wanted to let you and Mark know that the 2 gentlemen that were here to do the repairs (can’t remember their names) were both extremely professional and polite. I felt they should be recognized. It’s not often customers take the time to say something positive (usually only to complain).

  • Nancy B. Charlotte, NC
    Responded quickly to our need to install a flush ceiling fan in our sun room and a high ceiling hanging replacement fan in the great room. After reviewing the project, gave a reasonable estimate and completed the job. Workers were very pleasant, gave us exceptional information and helped us understand the new installation. They completed the job sooner than expected, including a trip to obtain a different ladder.

  • Greg & Lynn T. Charlotte, NC
    We’re writing to let you know Patrick and James did a great job with our panel replacement yesterday. They showed up on time, worked nonstop, took the time necessary to do quality work, and cleaned up their work area. Patrick also explained how a potential information disconnect could happen between Mecklenburg County and Duke Energy regarding our service restoration. That info breakdown did in fact happen but, armed with Patrick’s advice on who and where to call, enabled us to get Duke to finally show up around 8:00pm yesterday. You can count on us to recommend your company to our neighbors.

    We had one of your guys out last week. I didn’t catch his name, but this guy was WONDERFUL. Very polite. Very helpful. VERY patient. He knew his stuff. We have worried about finding another electrician because we’ve had such bad luck in the past. No more. You are our guys from here on out. We’ve got some other things to take care of soon and you will be the only ones we call. Thanks again. 100% satisfied. I even plugged you on the radio. I’m a cast member on “The John Boy & Billy Big Show”. Will definitely recommend you to others.

  • John P. (has a rental property in Charlotte)
    They fixed track lighting wiring, fixed a couple of electric outlet wiring, and inspected smoke detectors. Overall, it went well. I am out of state and the tech called me when they were at the property and let me know what needed to be done and that the work was completed!

  • Jason D. Charlotte, NC
    Patrick arrived in the early portion of the 2-hour window. He as very courteous and professional and kind to our three children – who asked lots of questions. He found the GFI switch and then went to each outlet and checked to ensure they were working. He replaced a switch then went into the attic to see the layout for ceiling fan install. He told me about some of their other safety products – very informative and also helpful with having small children. They were based on a recommendation from a contractor and I was pleased.

  • Terry K. Indian Trail, NC
    My 76 year old mother needed an electrician due to a light switch that would not turn on. She called around 9am on January 14th for an electrician to come out when they could. The woman in the office was extremely pleasant and very helpful. She said that an electrician would be out the same day and he could not have been more knowledgeable and helpful and also very pleasant. Fixed the problem quickly. My mother will be using them again very soon on another issue she talked with them about. Going forward they will be my mother’s and my Electric Company. Thank you so much for taking such wonderful care of my mother.

  • Sam T. Charlotte, NC
    Brian, the electrician who came to do the job, was excellent. We were very pleased. He was very honest because he could have told us we needed a new air conditioner, but he told us nothing was wrong with it. I felt the overall bill was very reasonable. I have nothing to complain about.

  • Ruth T. Charlotte, NC
    I called several companies and they were all closed for the holiday, but ARC actually answered and took my information. He said they’d be willing to get someone out on Tuesday! They came to do the estimate and it was so affordable. They came in much more economical than the other two quotes I’d gotten. They were ready and willing to get down to work. When they came out, they were very professional and polite and very affordable. They made the job very simple, compared to what others had told me. They did a straight-forward job and I can’t say enough about how easy they were to work with. They truly live up to their name of Affordable, Reliable and Christian–their professionalism was with high integrity and trustworthiness.

  • Robert S. Charlotte, NC
    Over the holidays, the double oven went out and appliance repair identified it as a home circuit fault. ARC came out within 2 hours, diagnosed the problem, replaced the breaker, and had the issue resolved in a jiffy.

  • Emerson’s. Charlotte, NC
    This company is great. They were able to change out all our light fixtures and update our switches and outlets with no mess or fuss. They even offered better alternatives than what we had chosen, that ended up saving us money and looked great.
    Emerson’s. Charlotte, NC
  • Randy S. Charlotte, NC
    It’s nice to work with someone that understands the meaning of excellent service. I wish that I had found ARC long ago. Great work! I highly recommend this company.
