  • Zar Electric employees are always professional and knowledgeable
    Zar Electric employees are always professional and knowledgeable. They go the extra mile to make sure things are done right. They have done multiple jobs for us over the past few years to include move our breaker box inside, wiring an addition at our residence and adding a generator transfer switch for a future generator. We will definitely use them again.

  • The technicians were on time, very professional, and very polite
    Zar Electric came out to my home to determine why I lost power in my family room. The technicians were on time, very professional, and very polite. Within 30 min they were able to determine the problem and it was an easy repair. They did an additional safety inspection at no charge and when finished they advised me of several options to correct some other safety issues, such as a GFCI was needed in the kitchen. I would highly recommend Zar Electric for any and all your electrical installs or repairs!

  • Austin was very knowledgeable, profession and a pleasure to work with
    We needed our smoke detectors and a few sockets replaced. From the beginning I was informed of my appointment and the level of communication was great. Once the technician arrived, Austin was very knowledgeable, profession and a pleasure to work with. We are pleased with the work that was done. We will use Zar Electric again and recommend them to anyone needing electrical work.

  • Prompt and very professional
    Shannon and team was prompt and very professional. After a pricing issue provided by Zar, Shannon was able to bring a satisfactory resolution. They left the job clean and made sure I was satisfied with the work before they left. I was very satisfied with the work and problem resolution provide by Shannon.

  • Zar Is never far when on par for star service
    I have used Brian Ellis 3 times to do electrical work for me and each time I was impressed with his professionalism and how quickly he completed the task. Brian could have easily become a teacher and explains electric questions so even I understand how electricity works. Zar is a five star company with top-shelf employees. Zar Electric is one of the few companies I feel positive about recommending as your go to Electric Company..

  • They were a pleasure to be around
    Zar electricians Shannon and Phillip came out to my house and were so professional and understanding. They were a pleasure to be around. I felt like I was talking with family members . Absolutely would refer them to friends and family members.

  • Always thorough and professional
    My issue was a malfunctioning GFI receptacle outside. Brian came this morning and assessed the issue and gave me a quote to replace the receptacle and the cover. I decided not to do the work today, but wanted to complement the technician anyway. He is always professional and provides all the information I need. I have had Zar Electric address electrical issues at my home on more than one occasion, and they always do a great job.

  • Outstanding Service
    We were hit by lightning last Friday and I called your company for service. Your people went out of their way to get me someone here to remedy the damage. Shannon Lloyd came today and was outstanding. We couldn't be happier with his workmanship. The lightning damage was completed today and unforeseen additional work that will be completed tomorrow. You guys rock....

    - Frank E.

  • We hit the "jackpot" with you guys
    Thanks to Brian for the work he did earlier this week as he was very professional, very efficient and very neat in carrying out the seven different electrical items that needed attention in our newly purchased home...we hit the "jackpot" with you guys and we appreciate all of your help.

  • Great experience!
    Shannon and Kevin were so professional and I couldn't be happier with the work they did for us! It was a daunting job but they handled it with ease and a great attitude!

    - Nancy Swann

  • Friendly, professional service!
    I just wanted to take a moment to commend Zar Electric on the superior service they provided us in helping us finish off our attic. In particular, I want to praise Shannon and Kevin. They were prompt, courteous, friendly, and professional, and they showed the utmost respect and expertise in explaining what they were doing. I felt so comfortable having them work on our house that I requested a business card so that we might be able to request both of them again in the future. Thank you for your wonderful service!

    - Beth S.

  • They did a great job!
    I had a wall switch short out in our new place and couldn't determine the source of the problem. Shannon and his apprentice came out and did a great job straightening things out. They were on time, courteous, took care to not damage the floors and walls and quickly fixed the problem. I plan to call ZAR back any time for service when I need it. Well done!

    - J. Pebley

  • Neat, clean profession work.
    Zar has recently completed a second small commercial project for us. On both occasions, the projects were completed on-time and in a neat, clean professional manner. Thanks to Shannon for this latest task, well done.

  • I would highly recommend Zar and Brian, and plan to use them for future electrical projects.
    Brian was the electrician that came for our estimate of installing an outdoor coach light . Brian was very professional, communicated exactly what would be done and was able to do the job the same day. I can't say enough about his attention to detail and not leaving any mess with Sheetrock cleanup etc. I would highly recommend Zar and Brian, and plan to use them for future electrical projects.

    - Tracey Sanders

  • Excellent communication, very professional, timely scheduling, and thorough !

  • These guys and gals on this Zar Electric team have blown me and my company away with their all around great service and scheduling system
    These guys and gals on this Zar Electric team have blown me and my company away with their all around great service and scheduling system. It's so easy to schedule by email or phone, and when it's scheduled, you do not have to worry if they will show! I'm a GC and a lot of my work is on the fly, hot calls! It comes with the business. They handle the hot calls, the quick return for seldom warranties. They speak to my customers, and very polite. I am a Zar customer for life! Great group

  • We will definitely call upon this company again!!
    We are so glad we used ZAR Electric for our electrical needs. They outperformed everyone else we've used in the past. Not only did Tyler and Brian install several outlets for us, they hooked up the lights and the ceiling fan also. When we found out one of the lamps had broken glass, they were patient enough to wait for me to go buy another one at Home Depot, along with a ceiling fan remote which also had to be installed! I appreciated that gesture so much. Both men were very professional and friendly. We will definitely call upon this company again!!

    - Suzanne Wakefield

  • The end result is better than perfect if that could be.
    Our experience with Zar Electric most certainly met our requirements and went a step further. From the quote to the end job we were satisfied. The end result is better than perfect if that could be. It took 3 weeks from quote to job with 2 phone calls and 1 email but that is because they are busy and the best around. We had three ceiling fans installed and two moved. Also three dimmer switches were installed.

  • I would just like to thank ZAR electric for revitalizing my faith by providing GREAT customer service at a reasonable price that exceeded my expectations.
    Absolutely fantastic customer service. The office staff, Sabrina and Melissa, went above and beyond to help me get an electrician out to my house quickly. Communication was excellent. Craig was very prompt and thorough when providing an estimate. Tyler, the technician worked tirelessly on a Friday evening to get the job done. He was careful and accurate. I would just like to thank ZAR electric for revitalizing my faith by providing GREAT customer service at a reasonable price that exceeded my expectations. I would not hesitate to call them for all of my electrical needs in the future. Hats off to Tyler! THANK YOU!

    - Christine Norman

  • I will say ZAR has a new customer for future business based on my experience.
    My first positive impression of this company was when I called, a "real person" answered the phone, not an answering machine! I explained what I needed, was able to get all my questions answered, and get an appointment scheduled in a timely manner. The technician was on time, did an excellent job, was polite, courteous and very knowledgeable in answering my additional questions upon his arrival. I will say ZAR has a new customer for future business based on my experience.

    - Helen Wilingham

  • I would recommend them in a heartbeat, thank you.
    From my first call to the hand written thank you for your business note the customer service from Zar Electric was outstanding. It seems so infrequent these days to call a company and get a human on the phone that can actual assist you without multiple transfers. Convenient scheduling, on time for the appointment and great staff they completed the work I requested. Before I forget, yes at a great price and no hidden fees. I would recommend them in a heartbeat, thank you.

    - Will Davis

  • I look forward to having them back for my other electrical projects.
    ZAR electric put in a surge suppressor for my home panel. They used top of the line equipment and knew exactly what they were doing. Their sales person was great to work with and discussed my needs at length. He provided a quote over the phone and that's exactly what he charged me. The two technicians came to my house withing a couple of days. They explained everything to me and put up with a ton of questions from me. They did very clean work. the installation was clean looking and was done properly. They are also working with me on another project that I plan on having done. I look forward to having them back for my other electrical projects. I am also considering signing up for the yearly service contract. If you want quality electrical work I would defintely call these guys. I have no affiliation with this company. I just recently read some reviews and gave them a call based solely on those reviews. I feel better knowing I have a local electrician I can call on.

  • Would definitely recommend them and I would use their services again

  • We'll never look anywhere else for Electric work (in the future).
    Had the ZAR men come out and fix a large # of inspected items. They were completely professional in every way: Admin, Delivery/Execution, etc. And were flexible with their scheduling, We'll never look anywhere else for Electric work (in the future).

    - Jon Sayles

  • I highly recommend Zar Electric and will refer friends.
    I was referred to Zar Electric by a friend. Zar Electric responded within an hour of my phone call. They provided full details about estimate of work that I wanted done and discussed how to best meet my needs. The technicians are courteous, professional, knowledgeable and efficient. The technicians showed me areas that were in good shape and those that needed more consideration. The technicians were prompt, courteous, and cleaned up. I highly recommend Zar Electric and will refer friends. Thank you Zar Electric especially the 2 technicians that worked at my home.

  • Thx Zar Electric, you are truly the best
    I needed an electrician for a couple problems at my house and business. I called Zar Electric. Best call I've ever made. The most professional, honest, knowledgeable people I've ever dealt with in my life. They were there exactly when they said they would be. Diagnosed problems quickly and fixed them at a better price than I expected. I've used them many times since and have recommended them to many people. They will never let you down!!! Thx Zar Electric, you are truly the best

  • This is our #1 go to Electrician!
    No wonder this company is part of the community's Best of the Best!! Know what they're doing, service is top notch, staff are terrific to work with, answering all questions, their quality of work is great, and like working with a company where the owner is hands on. Recommend this company to all! Specific home services include the installation of an whole house surge protector, repair of prior electrician work, screened in porch electrical work. Commercial services included additional lighting, fixtures and controls at a workplace. Currently considering additional outside flood lighting and camera set up. This is our #1 go to Electrician!

  • Zar Electric was recommended to me by a friend and, like most people, I trusted in my friends recommendation….best decision ever!
    I am a first time home buyer and the house I purchased was a small 1938 farmhouse. Needless to say, the electrical needed to be updated. Zar Electric was recommended to me by a friend and, like most people, I trusted in my friends recommendation….best decision ever! Sean came over to my new home and spent about 2 hours with me going over the updates that needed to be made, reviewing my budget, setting a timeline, etc. When he left after that initial visit. not only did I feel informed about my own home and the repairs that needed to be made, but I also felt extremely confident that I had hired someone who truly valued his customers and wasn’t simply looking at me like a paycheck. There were 3 Zar Electric employees that worked on my home: Sean, Zack, and Craig. Zack and Craig were the primary two who work on the project of my home and honestly, you couldn’t ask for two better guys! They showed up on time, if not a little early, worked at a consistent pace throughout the day, and informed me of updates to their work progress or of anything out of the ordinary that would need to be fixed before they would want to go further. Example: a few beams that had termite damage that they thought I might want to repair before they progressed further. The three most important aspects of any job are 1) Quality of work 2) Timeliness and 3) Coming in on budget. Zar Electric met and surpassed ALL of my expectations. They are the ONLY company I will EVER use when it comes to electrical work. I can’t say enough good things about them! I look forward to working with them again.
  • I will definitely be using them again!
    Zar Electric has rewired some of my existing electrical along with providing the electrical for my home addition. They worked with me as well as the other contractors to get their stuff installed and complete. I will definitely be using them again!
  • I highly recommend Zar Electric and their services and will certainly consider them for our future projects.
    We used Zar Electric for our kitchen renovation project in 2014 along with a few lighting updates throughout the house. We were very pleased with their work. Sean, Zack, and their crew did a great job. They were knowledgeable in their trade and very nice to work with. We very much appreciated their professionalism and workmanship. I highly recommend Zar Electric and their services and will certainly consider them for our future projects.

  • I am always impressed by the quality of work your crew does
    My father taught me a lesson one time about being honest. I’ve always tired to live up to that ideal: I always pay my bills, and I don’t want to put you in a bind. I am always impressed by the quality of work your crew does and their communication skills are the best of any sub contractor crew I’ve had working on this project. I appreciate that more than words can express!

  • I was very satisfied with the service and would hire this company again for future projects.

  • Zak and Craig were just fantastic!
    Zak and Craig were just fantastic! We were so impressed with their neatness, professionalism, courtesy, brainstorming skills, and overall demeanor. You are very lucky to have a team who represent your company so well. If you ever need a reference, please let us know, as we would be happy to share our great experience! We are thrilled with the end result. Thanks again, Nick and Michelle L.
  • I am very pleased with the quality of their work as well as general attention to detail and diligence
    Let me say your guys (Billy & Zack) do good work. I am very pleased with the quality of their work as well as general attention to detail and diligence. You run a good shop! Mike W.

  • They are on my permanent list for people to call for all my electrical needs.
    Excellent. One gateway light was working, the other was not. I had my contractor’s electrician look at the light and discovered that his workers merely disconnected the wires (I guess they couldn’t be bothered). Zar Electric sent Zack and Mike and they looked, tested, and dug until they found the problem, and then showed me a picture of the offending wire. They were willing to get a little dirty to get the job done, plus they were courteous, informative, and knowledgeable. They are on my permanent list for people to call for all my electrical needs.

    - Lisa F.

  • Very personable and took time to explain everything!
    These guys were on time for both the estimate and the installation. Very personable and took time to explain everything! Everything was perfect

  • I appreciated the prompt response to my concerns.
    Zar Electric responded to questions I had after the installation in a timely fashion with a follow up by the installer. I appreciated the prompt response to my concerns.
  • I’d recommend these guys for any wiring projects you might have for your home.
    Really glad I hired Zar Electric for our Cat5 siring needs. They were extremely courteous, knowledgeable, and cleaned up after themselves. The price was really reasonable as well. I’d recommend these guys for any wiring projects you might have for your home. Overall excellent service!

  • They finished quickly but without rushing and did a super job cleaning up.
    I had a ceiling fan installed where there was no existing overhead before. The men were on time (actually 10 minutes early) and very professional. One poor guy had to spend about an hour in my attic with little space. They finished quickly but without rushing and did a super job cleaning up. I had been given an estimate of $125-250, depending on the attic and how long it would take. Considering my attic is not floored and I knew they would be on their bellies most of the time, I was expecting at least $250. They charged a little less than $250, but considering what a PIA the work in the attic had to be, I think the price most reasonable.

  • Thank you for recommending Zar, we would recommend them to others!
