Electrical Wiring Upgrades

The Importance of Electrical Wiring

It’s important to have advanced electrical outlet wiring in your home to keep your appliances and devices running efficiently. Having up-to-date electrical outlet wiring is essential to protect your home from any potential safety hazards. You are at greater risk if you have outdated aluminum or knob and tube wiring. When left unrepaired, outdated electrical wiring could cause power surges, electrocutions, or even serious electrical fires.

Delano came to our house all week to change some knob and tube, add some outlets, and change the panel. He was kind, thoughtful, professional, communicative, and on time. He explained everything he was doing/did and was patient with questions. Milton Electric was responsive and easy to work with in general!! Highly recommend.

I have nothing but good things to say about Milton Electric, from the first step with the estimator, to the responsive folks at the office and, finally, the excellent work provided by Denny and Delano. I needed to have the overhead line to my garage restored after storm damage, plus a few related things, and Denny and Delano arrived on time, creatively met the challenges of my old house, and cheerfully responded to all the questions lobbed at them while they were working. All in all a great experience. I’d definitely call them again for future work.

My wife and I were most pleased with Milton Electric Co. Tina was helpful in scheduling our appointment at the earliest possible date. Our Milton electrician for today's visit was Delano, who was friendly, prompt and efficient. Arriving at the early part of our afternoon window, Delano proved a good listener when we showed him the areas where we needed lighting to be installed. He was flexible when we pointed out an additional problem with our outside lighting. His suggestions were helpful. We are grateful for the fine work that Delano performed and will certainly call Milton again for our electrical needs.

The electrician Delano arrived in the early part of the specified window and did a fantastic job installing 4 light fixtures throughout our house and answering some general questions we had about lighting. He was courteous, professional, and efficient. Will definitely call again! Thanks, Delano at Milton Electric!

Absolutely love this company! Won't hire anyone else! Everyone I have interacted with has been professional, helpful and kind from their receptionist to the electricians themselves. I even had someone from the warehouse answer the phone when the receptionist was out to lunch which is great service in my opinion! This is the second time I had hired them. They were able to book me with relatively short notice when other companies were booked many weeks in advance and were also able to move my appointment on short notice with no issues when my light fixtures had not arrived yet. I was only billed for T&M at an hourly rate and Delano was able to replace (3) ceiling light fixtures for me all within the hour! No additional materials were needed so all I had to pay was 1 hour of labor which was more than fair to me! Delano was professional, friendly and efficient! Highly recommend this company if you are in the area!

Delano did an amazing job with a variety of electrical fixes around our house. He had no problem dealing with the quirks of our old rowhouse. He made everything fit perfectly and look nice and clean when he was done. The quote was straightforward, competitive, and no surprises after the fact. Will *definitely* call on them again.

We recently contracted with Milton Electric for our new home in Baltimore to fix several issues identified in our inspection report, to install new outdoor external light fixtures, and to run a line to install an EV charger. Delano and Ryan of Milton Electric were the best technicians to work with. Delano, the veteran electrician, and Ryan, his apprentice, knew their stuff and talked us through how they would run a wire for the EV charger and how they'd do so in a way that would be clean, professional, and look good.If you hire Milton Electric, you'll get good service. But, if you ask for Delano and Ryan, you'll receive amazing service.
