We had Barney's Electric come out to install an outdoor ceiling fan on the patio. We really appreciated the no cost estimate. He quoted a fair price and when he came to install the fan, he worked very quickly and efficiently even though he had lost his assistant during the week and it was a little warm that morning. He was very nice. I would call him again for any additional work we might need.

Barney's Electric took out my old fluorescent lighting fixtures and installed recessed lighting with dimmer switches. He installed under cabinet lighting with switches, and installed USB ports in my kitchen outlets. The lighting transformed my kitchen. It looks so much better! They were nice, polite, and cleaned up after themselves.
