Emailed on Friday, they showed up first thing Monday morning. Worked for about 2 hours and found that it was loose wiring in the electrical panel. Cost was 225$ and I don’t know if that is low or high.
Excellent. They are very professional, reliable, co-opertive

Very easy to work with. Very reponsive and professional when working on site.
Dining room light was perfect. However the fixture replaced in my closet only lasted a week before it was no longer working. It took a long time to get them back, otherwise would have given an A. When my husband spoke to them they said the pull string fixtures are made very poorly and that I probably pulled the string too hard which is why it broke. I had the prior fixture for 16 years and this one lasted a week? Anyways, they then suggested to get a new fixture installed with an actual light switch so it would last, which we decided to do. However I would have expected a discount or refund on the work originally done that only lasted the week.
Prompt, courteous and knowledgeable.
Great work. No issues!
They diagnosed and resolved the issue.
Two electrician showed up and got right to work with the project. Finished it in just under an hour and it works great. They noted that a newly installed electrical panel box had none of the breakers marked and suggested that they could do it for an additional hour’s work. They went through the entire house, every switch and outlet and got the box properly labeled.
Used Angie’s List deal for outside GFCI outlet installation. All work performed very neatly and thoroughly. As indicated in the deal (2 hours labor for $99), I payed a fair price for materials and additional labor hours. Would definitely hire again.
I had purchased a deal for 8 hours of electrical labor. Tee and came with one more electrician and they worked for four hours
Tee was a pleasure to work with, and did a great job in a less-than-ideal situation (the electrical work in my home was not straight-forward). Very accommodating and honest. Would hire again in a heartbeat.
We decided to have 3 Lamp posts installed down the length of our driveway, which is 150 feet long, since friends/family had to usually walk in darkness back to their cars (There are no lights on our street and our porch light didn’t project very far). My first call was to Tee, who had done outstanding work for us in the past. He made a visit to survey the driveway and take measurements and said he would get me an estimate. Once the estimate was sent, we accepted his proposal which we found very reasonable and Tee scheduled the work. Once he arrived, with his assistant, Jake, they went to work digging a trench the entire length of the driveway. It was back breaking work in 90 degree heat. They had to remove huge rocks and boulders embedded beneath the ground every inch of the way up the driveway (there is a pyramid of boulders from their work that is huge!). At the end of that first day, they looked like they were ready to be admitted to an emergency room! They completed an incredible, exhaustive and monumental task. I can’t stress enough the effort they put in! They came back the next day to set the cement for the post bases and lay down conduit and wire. Another two days were needed which had to be scheduled around Tee’s busy work schedule but within 7days, the lamp posts/lanterns were installed and working beautifully. They also installed a motion-activated flood light in the backyard we had needed. Overall, an outstanding job by Tee and Jake! They are at the top of the list when it comes to electricians, absolutely the best. A+++++.
Removal of knob and tube wiring, changing electrical panel, install wall switches and new light fixtures.
It all went well. Price was reasonable for the amount of work they did. They were conscientious, patient and very respectful.
I am completely satisfied. Tee is very prompt, courteous, and approachable. I was present during the installation (working in another room), and Tee asked for my feedback during each step (e.g., placement of lights, brightness of lights, etc.) to make sure that I was completely satisfied. The final product is flawless, and the cleanup was immaculate. I will definitely contact Tee for future electrical work and recommend him highly to others.
Tee was simply great. Came out to give an estimate. Scheduled for a week later. They arrived on time, worked quickly and cleanly. All the work is perfect. Rather than tack on extra materials, they used some wall switches I already had, and a light fixture I had laying around for the attic light. After they finished they scoped out a few more jobs for me. I’m getting one done immediately (tomorrow) and then I will have them do the other jobs later this Summer. I couldn’t be more pleased.
We had an old wall AC unit (found out it was at least 33 yrs old), that had stopped working. It was a huge unit that we just couldn’t replace right away. We finally found a new unit, but realized that the new one ran on 240amps, not 110. So, we needed to have the wall plug and breaker upgraded to be able to run the new unit.
They responded to my emails yesterday, even though it was a holiday, and came out first thing this morning to give an estimate. It was in line with another estimate we had received. But the difference was, they could do it right then!
So, we had them change out the breaker and outlet. They were here 20 minutes.
The work went very well.
They installed an outdoor electrical box and tied it to an inside receptacle. Fast and friendly. Recommended
Tee and his team installed additional circuit breakers in my finished basement that was originally all on one circuit. They also installed a circuit, wiring, plug and switch for a garbage disposal. In addition they replaced a bank of fluorescent lights with a new LED light panel. They were on time, neat and professional. They cleaned up after they were finished. They went through the job to confirm with me what I wanted before they started and at several points during the job. After they were finished they showed me all of the completed work and labeled all of the new circuits for me in the electrical box. I will be hiring them for additional work at my home. Tee and his team installed additional circuit breakers in my finished basement that was originally all on one circuit. They also installed a circuit, wiring, plug and switch for a garbage disposal. In addition they replaced a bank of fluorescent lights with a new LED light panel.
Tee came over to do the estimate and I was shocked with not only his professionalism but by his enthusiasm. I asked him to quote running an extra TV cable to the attic and he jumped right up and inspected access ways. After that I received my quote quickly and electronically. Tee showed up on time and did a great job. Other than having a hard time getting the town inspector by to sign off Tee did a great job. Even the inspector agreed that he was neat and obviously good at his job.
Tee is hands-down the most responsive, professional contractor I’ve worked with. He returns calls and emails and texts quickly; he intiates communication if there’s the slightest delay or if he said he’d follow up on something; and he arrives when he says he will. The quality of his work is high – no crooked outlets or oversized holes for receptacles, and of course it passes inspection. He and J are friendly and pleasant and relaxed, but all business on the job – the work gets done with good humor and on time. I was working to a tight timeline, and Tee had no trouble meeting the deadline. If A+ was an available rating, I’d have scored these guys higher. Recommend without hesitation.
Openings in the ceiling for recessed fixtures were carefully and cleanly done; routing of wiring was done efficiently in spite of in wall barriers etc. All work was completed within timelines and budget set prior to work. Provider arrived on time each day needed. All issues discussed with customer if deviations from original work plan were necessary. Provider purchased fixtures matching specs provided by customer.
Terrific! I called at the last minute after another lighting company late cancelled on me, and they came out to my home that day! Very nice, great work, will definitely use them again the next time we have lighting projects.
Tee came to our house about an hour after I called him, as promised, and was professional, efficient and friendly. He took a look at the outlet where we had an issue and diagnosed the problem right away. It was a short circuit. He fixed it and explained how we could make sure it wouldn’t happen again.. We’ll be needing electrical work in the very near future (lights installed in kitchen) and we will absolutely call this service provider. A+++++
Project was a 1900 Victorian renovation where the kitchen was demo to the studs, library converted to laundry room, 2 bathrooms wrre gutted and redone, knob and tube replaced on first floor, attic was pre-wired for future master bedroom build, ceiling fan installed, kitchen had high end appliances as indicated in the of what the provider did (48″ vent and range, double oven, dishwasher, garbage disposal, island light, recessed light etc).
Tendai Furusa Electricia quote was almost $2k less than other contractors and his work was outstanding. He was diligent, supportive, professional, punctual and reasonable in his approach to providing service. Once scheduled, he showed up on time and was very creative in helping us get through multiple issues encountered during the project. His creativity was outstanding especially during the last day of the project.
The electrical final inspection was completed, he came back to close out and we discovered an issue on our second floor that had nothing to do with our agreement. He spent many hours troubleshooting without charging us and he ended up suggesting a small change that rectified the issue and saved us a ton of money.
Some of his great service orientation is that when we had to rewire our first floor to replace knob and tube, he was diligent in informing us that he would have to cut into the ceiling. He did everything he could to avoid it but he ended up having to cut in. The holes were small and we were able to patch them quickly with limited impact to the overall space in a 115 years old house.
Working with Tendai Furusa was a pleasure as we believe we got more than what we paid for. We cannot shower enough praise for his work that was very well done. We’ll definitely be calling on him for future projects big or small. If you are in the market for a good trust worthy electrician, call Tendai Furusa Electrician.
Installed bathroom vent and fan. Went ok. The home is older and the electrical wiring is dated. They brought the bathroom to code.
Fixed electrical short circuit.
I had an emergency in which someone mistakenly cut through live wires we thought were dead. Tendai and Jake came that very evening to check and secure what had been done. It was a challenge because my house is nearly 100 years old and the wiring is not that old, but VERY old. They did a great job securing the cut wires and keeping electricity on for a couple of weeks – I was just leaving for a week of international travel!
When I returned, they came back and showed me hat the covering on the wires was falling apart. Although it was a big job, I OK’d them to rewire the entire first floor!
They came back for 3 days to complete that task. They had to not just re-wire but re route most of it!! They had to go up in my small attic to anchor in new boxes under the floor to wire to!! (Sorry if I don’t know all of the correct electrical terms!)
They did an amazing job, and even suggested putting 3 celing lights where I had none, and I could really use them. This house had gas lighting at one point, so they had to get rid of some of that old piping and fixtures as well.
They saw stuff in the cellar as well that could be dismantled, and they did a lot of work rewiring down there!
Tendai and Jake were always friendly, explained things clearly, offered suggestions, and always tried to do the best for the $ as well which I appreciated. They had to move stuff around every day, but left everything back in place, clean and swept!
They did little things like put light bulbs in the hanging light fixtures, as I had to order the actual lights. They had great ideas on where to put the switches, etc etc etc.
I would have them do any electrical work here again (which I’m sure I’ll need at “this old house”)
We had an emergency call. I found him on this website, called him up and he came over that morning. Very nice and unbelievably helpful. He quickly addressed the problem, gave me additional tips, and helped evaluate other potential problems.
I somehow managed to drop a board on my meter while working on windows above it. Smashed the meter, broken glass… and the meter box itself was pulled from the house. These gents showed up and realized there was nothing they could do until my power was turned off. Gave me good advice on how to handle the electric company and were in general very helpful. They even text me a few times asking if the power company had showed up yet (so they could fix the box). The electric company being the electric company didn’t show up until night… shut my power off and left. Now Tendai could not help me the next day because he was booked but he did call me to make sure I found another electrician (and would have stopped later in the day if not). Wow, an electrician calling me just to make sure I was OK! Never charged me a penny… just very helpful. Real nice guys. I will use them in the future no doubt.
Installed a bathroom exhaust fan. They were quick and efficient and also fixed a couple of other small electrical issues while they were here. T is a very nice guy and very helpful.
Installed 240V electic service.
We didn’t have any work done but I felt confident that this electrician was fully capable of doing the
I wasn’t thrilled that replacing a few light fixtures would require so much work, but that’s the fault of the previous owner for taking shortcuts. Tendai was FANTASTIC. He got everything done, he let me know about the changes in scope and made sure I was OK with them before proceeding, he got everything done quickly, he gave me everything in writing, and he made sure the apartment passed inspection. On top of that, the quality of his work is extremely good – all the lines are neat and tidy, all the new fixtures are well positioned, everything looks clean and professional. While renovating an apartment, I called TFE to replace 6 light fixtures, install 2 new light fixtures, re-run a thermostat wire, install a GFCI outlet, swap 2 circuits that were in the wrong panels – and, most importantly, make sure the apartment would PASS INSPECTION. Tee also found that to replace the light fixtures, 5 new circuits would be required to bring the apartment up to code. Those new circuits required new outlets and a new breaker panel.
Tee was very responsive and knowledgeable. He initially showed up after working hours (around 7, very convenient!) for an evaluation, where we agreed he would need to return for a full day. We agreed upon a time the following week and he showed up punctually. Additionally, he was clear about his fees and gave me good expectations of a worst case scenario on the big day. The job was this: two sides of the third floor of a four unit residential building had been wired as an extension of the smoke detector circuit, so it was tripping constantly and tenant utility use was being paid for by the owner. Tee ran a new line from an existing breaker to each of the apartment circuits, each consisting of two rooms and a hall light. He expected up to a whole day, but finished in about 5 hours. This was my first experience working directly with an electrician and I will both recommend him to others as well as utilize his services in the future.
Tendai Furusa Electrical is a highly professional, very skilled organization who perform quality work. They are responsive, punctual, and very customer oriented. When Tendai and his partner Jake arrived, they first listened intently to the issues we were having and then immediately got to work. While Jake was working on replacing a mounted electric heater, Tendai was in the basement, they communicating with each other the whole time. These guys really know what they’re doing. Initially, it was not clear what was causing our electrical problems. As Tendai was backing out of the driveway to get the new heater element, his focus on properly diagnosing the issue made him back up and take a look at the main electrical connection for the house. That was when he discovered the problem. Main connection wires had been burned due to loose wiring. If left untreated, these charred electrical connections would have caused a major fire within the home. I am positive that Tendai’s intent focus on his job is what saved our home. I found both Tendai and Jake to be personable, professional, and respectful and their work top notch. We definitely received excellent value for the price we paid. These folks are honest and go above and beyond in the quality work they provide. I highly recommend this company and we will definitely be a repeat customer.
Electrician Tendai Furusa and his assistant Jake are true professionals. They arrived promptly and the price was fair. I do most of the interior electrical work myself, but felt uncomfortable working on the main line feeding into the house. My friend recommended Angie’s List, I joined sent Tendai a message, within two minutes I had a reply, in a half hour they where at the house with the solution, work completed that day, better than original. I realize luck was involved, they where actually driving back from a completed job and had a brief window of opportunity to do this work, but I am grateful and I recommend the Tendai Furusa electrical team.
I keep going back to Tee with electrical work and it literally gets better every time. I had a list of a dozen jobs, big and small, around my house for him to do. He showed up on time, gave me a written quote and we scheduled the work. He completed the work on time and it looks and functions perfectly. He is open to my ideas and will make alterations if I have a different perspective. He and Jake are friendly, professional, quick, and efficient. I can’t recommend their service enough!
My experience with Tendai was excellent. His price was great, he always responded to both phone and email on a timely basis, and was very professional in all of his dealings with me. He was pleasant to have in the house and was punctual and efficient. He also was able to deal with working with me (an amateur) as both the general contractor and the labor for all work other than electrical and plumbing, which I am sure was not always easy. I have another project coming up soon and will not be checking Angie’s list for an electrician as I have already found someone I am very happy to work with! Completed the electrical work for a new bath in an existing room requiring the rerouting on a number of circuits and the installation of a several new ones in addition to a vent fan. He also installed new outlets for a laundry area.
Tee arrived promptly at 8:00 AM. He was very professional and pleasant when I met him at the door. He quickly assessed the work and promptly provided a written estimate. We agreed on the estimate and the work and he immediately went to work. Replacing the ceiling fan required a ladder and Tee brought in sheeting to protect the rug below and was careful with the fan that he was taking down because the fan was going to someone else to use. Each of the various jobs that he did were done very efficiently and the work area was kept clean and neat, including the outside work. I would definitely contact Tee for future work and would recommend him to others. Tee removed an existing ceiling fan and replaced Irish a new fan and switch set. He also traced an outside line to find a short running to an outdoor landscape bed outlet and replaced the mounting post GFI outlet. He replaced a defective Gfi on the deck of our house. He installed a dimmer switch in the dining room, and repaired a recessed light above a staircase. He also went out to purchase materials that I neglected to have available for him to use during the installation.
Tendai was very prompt, professional, friendly, and efficient. He added new light fixtures and switches, electrical repairs. I’ll use him for all future electrical work.
Nice work! Put in a 240 outlet and hooked up an electric car charging station.
Tendai Furusa provided a written estimate for the work even though he was there to perform the work that day. I felt this was an additional step that some service providers would not have done. This made it very clear what the scope and cost of the work was. I really like a written estimate for those reasons.
After I approved the estimate, he identified the materials I needed and purchased them for me. The installation was complete within the time he estimated, he clean up after himself and the work that was done was indistinguishable for the work originally done when the hours was built 2 years ago. I’ve tested everything and it is working as expected. There is nothing I would want to change about what he did. We feel we got what we paid for and plan to have him back for some work in the future.
I would recommend Tendai Furusa because he is professional, does high quality work and is very effective at communicating.
My initial call to this company was responded to within 24 hours and a mutually acceptable date was set after I briefly explained the problem. They were busy and told me it would be two weeks and their estimate was spot-on. Upon arrival, I explained the entire situation and shared the fact that my brother, also and electrician, had suggested that full examination of each outlet would be a good idea before taking so drastic an action as tearing into the mahagony flooring. Tee agreed and explained thay had a standard fee for such troubleshooting work, an amount which I considered totally acceptable.
Quite literally mements later, I saw that power had been restored to the exterior lights on the porch. Tee came in, shaking his head and asked me to come out so I could see what the problem had been, which he photographed before fixing. Someone had disconnectd the wire which provided power to the porch and carefully tucked it back into the conduit that led to the porch. Once reconnected, full power was restored. So no cutting into the floor, or my alternaive, which would have been to cut an access through the concrete foundation. In either case, thousands of dollars for a problem that was not a problem at all.
We used up the rest of the hour replacing bulbs in some exterior can lights and that was it. I am obviously extraordinarily happy with the outcome and now feel comfortable and secure in the knowledge that I have a competent, honest and reliable electrician to call upon when needed. I needed Tee to troubleshoot lost power to a free-standing screened porch. I had been told by the previous electrician that the most likely cause was rodent damage to wires underneath the flooring of the porch (which was built on a full concrete foundation). Since no access to the area under the porch had been left when it was constructed, the conclusion of the contractor who built the structure and his current electrician (not the original one) was that an access would need to be cut into the mahagony flooring to “investigate” the source of the problem. The power source for the porch was in an adjacent structure where the electrical panel was located. Despite rigorous attempts to query the electrician about why he was so sure the problem was under the porch I was unable to get any information, just that he “needed to get under the floor”.
He was punctual, neat, and nicely mannered. He was reasonably priced too.I used Tendai Furusa Electrician. He did several electrical jobs around the house. He also installed a replacement bathroom’s exhaust fan and light set up in its entirety.
The only information to add to the above is that I did have 2 other electricians give me quotes. The price Tee gave us was less plus he was the only one that arrived on time.Tee was on time and professional when he came to give us a quote. When I called to make an appointment to have the work done he was willing to help me work within my busy schedule. He came right on time to do the work. We had left alot of electrical work that needed fixing until we had decided on lighting that we needed to be added. Tee got right to work and completed the job more quickly than I had anticipated. He cleaned up thoroughly before he left. He charged us the price he had quoted us. We will definitely use him again. No hesitation.
Tee was exceptional and did a terrific job on every single one of the items that he tackled. Tee had to overcome some challenges in this job, including some unexpected excavations and some bizarre wiring choices made by the prior owner of the home. Everything was completed timely (only took one day!!!) including his estimates. On-time, super courteous and fairly priced.
I would highly recommend his work to anyone and in fact I am having him come back to do a second round of jobs as I was so pleased with his performance the first time. Tee was brought in to do a wide variety of work for our home including running power out to our shed, replacing a number of those ridiculous halogen ceiling lights, installing a new bathroom vent fan and a bunch of other stuff.
My husband and I had a home inspection done in preparation for selling our home. Tee had done such a good job for us the last time he was here that there was no question about our asking him to help us again. He had said that he would come back to install lights in our finished basement after we had ceiling repair work done and when I called to schedule that with him, I asked if he could look over the list of recommendations from the home inspector and perform that work for us. As promised, Tee installed the lights then took care of everything on the list. He also provided us with a recommendation for a contractor who would be willing to address the other small items on the list.Replaced standard outlets with GFCIs, added an outlet to the garage, updated the electrical box in the basement, installed lights.
MrFurusa came to look things over and gave an estimate and then showed up (on time!) and performed the work quickly and cleanly. The results look great and the estimated cost was also the final cost. The electrician put in a ceiling light and replaced a dead light in the basement, and added another secondary light.
Tee was excellent. He was prompt, professional and very personable. He came to the house for an estimate within a few days of my call and emailed me a quote the same day. I had originally asked him to install a light fixture and troubleshoot an outlet. I later realized I needed a light switch changed as well. Tee changed the switch at no additional charge. His prices were reasonable and the quality of his work was excellent. Before he left I requested an additional estimate for recessed lighting as I plan to hire him again in the future. I highly recommend his services. Thanks Tee!
Tee replaced several old two-prong outlets with new 3-whole outlets; replaced the ballast in the fluorescent light over the workbench in the utility section of our basement; and, installed junction boxes for replacement lights in the finished section of our basement. During the prep work to install new lights in our basement,Tee discovered that when the current lights were installed, they were not installed correctly and that the previous installation left huge holes in the ceiling. This discovery changed the course of action and instead of installing the lights, Tee just installed the boxes and will return to install the lights after the sheet rock work is complete.
Tee completed all the work for which he gave us an estimate and in addition he tested a light fixture that had become problematic following his initial visit. Fortunately, the problem turned out to be just the bulb. We were very pleased with Tee and the services he provided and would definitely contact Tee again for any work we need done. We would also recommend Tee to anyone needing electrical work.
The electrician was amazing. He happened to be in Dracut and was at the house in 20 minutes. We had no idea what was wrong but was able to find the problem and show us what was going on so that we understood. He was able to restore all of the power that randomly went out and gave us a quote before he did any work. He was very thorough and asked a lot of questions to understand the problem.He also was incredibly polite, always smiling, and made sure that our little cat was okay. He even called as he was leaving to remind me that the garage door was open. I highly recommend him to anyone that needs electrical work done and we will be using him in the future!
Tee (as he likes to be called) was terrific. His estimate was dead – on accurate, he was punctual and the work he did was impeccable. He’s a very nice guy too, pleasant to deal with and to have in your house. I’ve hired other electricians before (I’ve owned 7 houses in 3 states) and I’d have to say that Tee Furusa is the best electrician I’ve ever used. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him and I’ll absolutely call him if I need any electrical work in the future. Installed a ceiling fan in master bedroom that had no overhead fixture, installed a whole – house surge protector that I supplied (Environmental Potentials EP-2050), added an AC outlet in basement, ran a CAT-6 ethernet cable from router in basement to the family room, replaced ceiling fan in family room, installed ceiling light fixtures in two bedrooms, replaced florescent light fixture in kitchen with track lighting, installed pendent lamp in kitchen, replaced three sconces in various rooms, repaired dead GFCI outlet on porch.
All went very well. He came to inspect as promised and came the next day to do the work. Very professional, regarding work and regarding behavior. I will definitely call him again for any future electrical work. replaced main electrical distribution box in my house
Highly recommened! Two man crew, Tee (primary) and Jake completed all of the work in a day and a half – the half day being a Saturday. Work was high quality and professionally done. Knowledgeable, hard working, and very personable guys. Neat and clean, courteous to homeowner (eg. shutting off as few zones as possible for as little time as possible). Very willing to help out. I bought the wrong size light/fan fixture for my bathroom and Tee ran out to buy the correct one for me from his supplier in under an hour. Price was exactly as estimated and very fair for the volume and quality of work performed. I wouldn’t hesitate to use them again, and probably will!
Awesome! I thought he could repair my smoke alarms, but ended up I needed new ones. So not only did he install the new carbon/smoke alarms, he went out and purchased them for me and returned promptly. He fixed a light over my kitchen sink and looked at the overhead light. I will definitely hire him again when I purchase new fan, chandelier, and kitchen light. Electrical Work – including purchasing and installing 3 carbon monoxide/smoke alarms and fixed a light over my kitchen sink. Also tried to repair kitchen overhead light, but I need a new fixture.
Tee Furusa rewired three circuits in my kitchen. He arrived when he said he would and did excellent work at a fair price. Throughout the project he explained my options clearly and kept me informed of his progress.
I would not hesitate to recommend him to family and friends.
Tee Furusa came when he said he would, and the price was great. He made the extra effort that you would hope for–the outside pole light had always been slightly lopsided, and when installing the new one he did the extra work to straighten it (without charging extra for what took definitely more time). There were bees starting to nest in one of the outside light fixtures, and he asked me for the bee spray and took care of that himself! He was quiet, courteous, and did excellent work. I would highly recommend him.
tee was very professional, on time and fast.
Tee came by on a Thursday morning to walk through the house with my dad and wife to go over the work we might like done. He emailed a quote to us by the end of the day. He quoted $740 for all of the things we wanted done. I ran the quote by a friend who knows a lot about electrical work and he said the quote was very fair.
Tee was able to do the work the next day, but we had him come on Monday. Tee arrived on time, completed everything he had quoted us and even went above and beyond and rewired the safety sensors that had been incorrectly installed on the garage door opener at no extra charge. In the end, he ended up working longer than the six hours he quoted, but he did not charge a penny more than the quote.
We could not have been more happy with Tee’s service. He is a young guy who carries himself like a professional. He was friendly to speak with, he is quick to respond to phone calls or emails, cleans up when he is done, and does quality work.
We look forward to working with him again when its time to finish our basement.My wife and I recently purchased a home from a house flipper and wanted to verify the electrical work was done properly. The biggest concerns we had were an incorrectly wired garage door opener, a bathroom fan/heater that seemed to be dimming the lights in the entire house, and breakers constantly going off.
Smaller items we wanted worked on if we could afford it were: adding an outdoor outlet to our deck, correcting two incorrect breakers that our home inspector noticed, adding another outlet to our garage for a chest freezer, rewiring the outlets in the bedrooms so that the light switch didn’t turn off the entire outlet, and adding a vent for the bathroom fan which had been dumping into the attic.
Tee responded to my call on the same day and was able to come the following evening. He is very polite and personable and was neat in his work, cleaned up afterwards. Very professional. He showed up exactly on time. It was very convenient to me that he could come in the evening so I didn’t have to take time off from work or have to wait a long time to get an appointment. As my job was very small, I was concerned about finding an electrician that would wnat to do it. He assured me that no job was too small. I will definatley call him again if I’m in need of an electrician.
Great experience with a great tradesman! Tee (Tendai Furusa) was great! I was getting my utilities updated as I was installing a new stackable front load washer and dryer in a tight space. We had to change the time once as he helped me decide that the plumber should do his work first. He was good at getting back to me promptly. He put in a new heavy duty electrical outlet and recessed it for me just like I wanted. He even asked me if there was anything else he could do for me while he was there. He put in a new special battery that my Verizon Fios service asked that we change in the basement near the Fios box, for free! He is professional and friendly. I feel glad to have found him.
Tee arrived 10 minutes before the scheduled time. He was very nice and I think maybe was a little surprised that the job was a little more difficult than he was expecting – we hadn’t told him which floor the bathroom was on or explained the strange layout of the electrical circuits in our somewhat older house – but he was very professional and got started right away. He had told us ahead of time that if any parts were needed he’d ask us to pay for those as well, which was fine. It turned out my husband had misspoken explaining what type of outlet/switch we wanted so he didn’t have the right part (our fault) but went right out and got what he needed. He finished the entire job in about 3 hours, which we never could have done on our own. Despite some of the complications slowing him down, he stuck to his $200 quote and applied the 10% discount coupon from Angie’s List. He only charged us $5 for the piece he had to go out to pick up. And he also put up with our very curious dog during all of it! He didn’t hesitate to ask any questions when he needed information to do the job properly and I felt comfortable being in the house while he worked. Oh he also received a call while he was cleaning up (left minimal mess and even moved the curtains to avoid dust, which was nice!) and right away asked to call them back since he was on a job, which I thought was very polite and professional. The fan works great and we’d definitely call him again for any electrical work. We called Tee to help with installation of an exhaust fan in our first floor bathroom of a standard cape home. The house is about 60 years old and there was never a fan there so we were starting from scratch. My husband had started the work but this was a little too advanced for an electrical rookie so he called Tee and explained the situation. We also needed to convert a normal wall outlet to include a switch for the fan (we didn’t want it to turn on every time we turn the light on). The quote Tee gave us was $200 to not only wire the fan, but he also said he would complete the duct work to the exterior of the house and finish hanging the fan, which was a bit lower than other quotes we received that did not include completing the install for us.
Every project was completed on time for the price quoted and never any issue.Tendai installed a temp panel for my emergency generator. Tendai completed 5 projects for me totaling $5.500.00 at my home and at our rental property. He installed recessed lighting at two properties. Exterior lighting at our rental property. Complete replacement of all interior wall outlets, plugs, and ceiling lights at a three bedroom condo. He is professional, hardworking, and attentive to any changes in the work. I would recommend him for any project and will definitely use him in the future.
Tee showed up on time to do an estimate for us. The main job was the installation of some recessed lights; in addition, we also wanted him to replace a ceiling light fixture as well as install some programmable thermostats. Tee gave us an estimate for the recessed lights and said he won’t charge us for the other work.
Tee showed up on time two days later for the job. He was very personable the entire time even when he realized the recessed light work was going to be much more challenging than he anticipated. Tee worked the entire time he was here. After he completed the work and got paid, I realized there were some issues with lights in another part of the house. I called him even thought I was not sure his work caused the problems. He returned the next day – a Sunday no less – and fixed the issue for me. Even though the issue was unrelated to what he had done for us the previous day, he declined payment saying it was a Christmas gift. I hired Mr.Tee Furusa to install six recessed lights for us and he ended up staying two additional hours doing some odds and ends electrical work like replacing a ceiling light, installing programmable thermostats and hard wired smoke detectors for us. When he was done, he said he did not want to be paid for the additional work because it was a Christmas gift for us. This is the first time I have ever met Tee! By the way, we loved the recessed light work he did for us. I cannot give Tee a higher recommendation.
He is friendly and works with you. He discussed different options for setting up our portable generator and helped us make good choices. Even did things like point out that we might have forgotten the microwave and may want to reserve a circuit for that. He showed up on time and cleaned up when finished. We had our house wired to hook up with a portable generator.
This could not have gone any better. Everything took less than 24 hours total.
I found Tee on Angie’s List and gave him a call on my way home from work. We agreed to meet that day. He arrived promptly and took an estimate of my projects. He said he could show up the next day at 2PM to perform the work. Not only had a I met him the day I called, but he could perform the service the next day.
He ended his prior job early so he was able to start my job early. 2.5 hours later everything was done and working perfectly. Not only that, but he went above and beyond to neaten up the area that had previously been messy and sloppily wired. I’ve had different experiences with service experts before, both good and bad. I can easily say this was the best of them all. I will certainly do business with TFE again!
His work turned out great. He is dependable. What he quotes is what it turns out to be. His pricing is fair. He goes above what the job is.He has helped us with light fixtures, outlets, switches, and more. He will be doing our kitchen when we get that all settled.
Very professional and thorough job.
