Generator Safety

Connecting a portable generator directly to your household wiring can be deadly to you and others. A generator that is directly connected to your home’s wiring can “back feed” onto the power lines connected to your home and injure neighbors or utility workers. By working with a qualified electrician, you can install a manual transfer switch to safely tie into selected circuits of your main electrical panel.

Another Satisfied Customer!

“I was and continue to be impressed with Carrie, her company, and employees. The staff that conducted the work is just as conscious about the quality and professionalism of work as Carrie represents. Both the government and power company inspectors spoke highly of the company and their work. When we had an air-exchange system installed, they coordinated very well with the other contractor. When they installed a new service and switched out an existing service, they once again performed well. In order for her to obtain and maintain this reputation, you know they are very good. I will not hesitate to recommend and use them again..”

Recent Recommendation and Testimonial

Tishhouse Electric is a very professional company. I approached them about getting an estimate to put in a new complete service to our house since our old one was sparking inside the box leaving us with a potential fire hazard. Steve was out to our house the very next morning with an estimate, very prompt. The work was completed just as quickly with very little down time of our electric. I soon had a low voltage power surge in the house so I called Steve to ask if he knew what it was since I had never seen that before. He was more than willing to stop out to look at it late on a weekend and had several scenarios for the reason, come to find out it was the fault of Consumers. The fact that he was willing to help us and come out shows their integrity, which unfortunately is a rare thing these days. I am so grateful to them for their prompt response. I HIGHLY recommend them, they know their stuff!!!
