Code Violations

Sometimes people cut corners. Sometimes what seemed like a great deal wasn’t. Sometimes people just don’t know. Sometimes previous “do it youselfers” did it incorrectly.

The Electrical Code is meant to protect you, your family and/or your tenants/employees from life-safety issues, particularly fire.You need a licensed electrician who knows how to interpret Electrical Code to come in and correct your violations.

Just because you have Code violations doesn’t mean we have to tear out walls or do major damage. We excel at finding ways to update your property in the least destructive and aesthetically pleasing ways.

Generators

Control your power and your life, with a standby generator. It protects your home every second of every day, automatically supplying power in the event of a utility power outage. You don’t even have to be home when you have a Generac Generator.

If utility power is interrupted, your Generac Home Standby Generator detects the problem, and automatically begins providing continuous power in a matter of seconds. When utility power is restored, it shuts off and seamlessly returns to standby mode – ready and waiting to protect your home and family the next time utility power fails.

Every home and family is different. One size generator does not fit all. An in-home assessment assures, you’re getting a home standby system that will meet your budget and specific needs, because only Generac offers a wide range of automatic standby generators. Call for an in-home assessment!

Testimonials

We recently had a fairly large job done by Tom and InTown Electric. He was the best contractor we have ever hired for any reason. Every person who came to our house was just as friendly, professional, courteous and wonderfully capable. The project took the better part of a day to complete and they were so unobtrusive and so professional, we were barely aware that they were here. I can’t say enough positive things to express our complete satisfaction with the job Tom and InTown Electric did for us. There were absolutely no hitches after they left, absolutely everything was reconnected and worked beautifully. No surprises in their estimate either! I highly recommend their service to any- and everyone – friends, family, neighbors-for any kind of electrical work.

Tom at InTown has done work for me on three separate occasions, and on each occasion, he arrived on time as scheduled – including once during a heavy snowstorm. Most recently, I had Tom out as part of a complete basement remodeling project, and I can easily say that InTown was the most professional company of all those who had a part in the project. Tom was friendly and professional, and his attention to detail was excellent. I asked for Tom’s advice regarding several of my electrical issues, and I never felt like I was being “sold” service that I didn’t need. To me, that was the most welcome part of my experience! I would not hesitate to recommend InTown to my family and friends, and I will no doubt call on Tom and InTown Electric for any of my future electrical needs. Thanks, Tom!
