CEC Electrical Services

Top Four Electrical Contractors in Santa Barbara CEC Electrical Services - Top Four Electrical Contractors in Santa Barbara

Jason Carlton has been an electrical contractor since 1994. He began by working on homes and remodels, moving on to tract homes and multi-million dollar custom houses. By 1996 he was working on large commercial projects, from grocery stores to high-tech offices. Soon after, he was going out on industrial service calls at large manufacturing plants, renovating compression stations on the William’s natural gas pipeline. This involved motor control in a very hazardous working environment, and demanded acute attention to detail.  In 2000 Jason passed the Oregon journeyman exam and received the Oregon Electrician License while working as a foreman running small commercial and industrial projects, and in 2002 he installed and repaired HVAC control work in University and Veterans' Administration hospitals. When he moved to Santa Barbara, he worked with a local electrical contractor installing theatrical lighting and setting up clean rooms, among a number of other projects. He has also installed solar panels and wiring in a commercial setting.  Since earning his C-10 license as an electrical contractor in 2008, Jason has worked on numerous residential electrical projects, from home rewiring, outdoor lighting, track lighting and ceiling fan installation, to wiring home theaters in high-end homes.  Jason enjoys trouble-shooting for those hard-to-fix problems, whether residential, commercial or industrial, and he will respond promptly to emergency calls.

Howe Electric was started in 2002 to meet Santa Barbara’s need for detail-focused, service-oriented electrical contractors. At the heart of the company’s philosophy lies the belief that attention to detail is key to customer satisfaction. High standards are integral to establishing and maintaining a reputation that this contractor can be proud of, ensuring that every job done is of the best quality possible. To keep up with ever-changing technologies, Howe Electric places considerable emphasis on training and professional development. The company’s extensive suite of advanced diagnostic tools facilitates the resolution of the most challenging trouble-shooting issues. One of the goals at Howe Electric is to ensure that the client’s remodel project goes as smoothly as possible. The company’s experience in home projects runs from specification through design-build, and Howe Electric is one of Santa Barbara’s forerunners in lighting design. In terms of California’s Title 24, lighting requirements seem to become more stringent every year. Knowledge and experience are key qualities to the success of a client’s project, but Howe Electric takes this a step further, having the creative vision to explore a home’s full potential. In the past several years, power quality has become an issue that affects virtually everyone. With the world becoming ever more tech dependent, poor power quality can be disastrous, and symptoms are not always obvious. Many of the homes and businesses in the Santa Barbara area were built before electrical contractors recognized and understood how to wire for good power quality. Howe Electric’s several flat-rate testing/rectification packages cater to a client’s specific needs, and depending on the specifics, will arrange a custom package. The company offers a highly competitive pricing structure and encourages their customers to compare their prices with other electrical contractors offering similar services. Howe Electric gives sound advice to home and business owners to protect their interests and is happy to share the wealth of expertise gathered over 20 years in the trade.  Tel. 805-896-4421

I just moved to Santa Barbara last month, and it's such a pity that I know nobody in the place. But I'm lucky I came across this post, I no longer have to go through the trouble of calling electrical contractors that offer inefficient services.

"Knowledge and experience are key qualities to the success " I have to agree with that! for sure. I think that the more times you do something the better off you are! and success comes from that all by it`s self.
