Our Electrical Services & Guarantee
Trout employs only the best, most experienced, most qualified electricians in the industry. Not just anyone can be a Trout technician! We screen applicants thoroughly and subject them to rigorous testing. All Trout electricians, regardless of experience, must "apprentice" for at least a year on the job before they're permitted to work alone.
We take pride in the quality of our work and in the satisfaction of our customers. Our strict standards and testing go well beyond those of most other electrical contractors. We back up every job we do with warranties and the guarantee that the price we quote to you will be the price that you pay. There are no unpleasant surprises when the bill comes due.
Trout is one of the highest rated electrical service companies on Yelp and Google Reviews, consistently awarded 5-star marks for work excellence, promptness, and general courtesty. Know that when you call us to fix a light switch or outlet, upgrade your circuit breaker or panel, install an EV charger in your garage, or reconfigure the wiring of your home, the job will be done right and at a guaranteed fair price.
Electrical Panels, Circuit Breakers & Fuses
Even if you have an older electrical panel in your home, more often than not, it will simply need a new circuit breaker or fuse. But if it does require an upgrade to safely handle increased electrical loads, we'll let you know, and we'll install a new panel at a guaranteed price. Since we stock parts from our own well-supplied warehouse, there's never a delay.
As always, we'll do only the work necessary to keep your home electrical system operating smoothly and safely. We won't upsell you to a new electrical panel unless it's truly in your best interest to install one.
Electrical Vehicle Chargers
Trout Electric has installed thousands of residential and commercial home charging stations for every make and model of electric vehicle. As one of the first companies in America to be certified to install home EV chargers, we helped pioneer the home charging station revolution. We can install Level 1 and 2 EV chargers anyhwere in your garage or yard, including charging ports compatible with Tesla, Audi, BMW, Honda, Toyota, Mercedes, Nissan, Volkswagen, and more. Most of our EV station job referrals come directly from dealerships that sell electric cars, because they know Trout can be trusted to perform the work promptly, correctly, and at a fair price.
Smart Home Installation
Today’s home appliances, doorbells, security cameras, windows and window treatments, bathrooms, kitchens, 4K TVs, speakers, and devices are all connected, or have the capability to be connected, to our phones, apps, and computers. Configuring those devices to work seamlessly together, especially when you own a hodgepodge of smart brands, or to respond to the right voice command or app, can be a daunting task for many people when they’re new to the world of smart devices. Trout Electric can guide you through the process of creating your smart home, recommend the best devices for it, and professionally install and configure those devices so that your new smart home becomes a joy and an ultimate convenience.
When your electrical system breaks, your comfort, convenience, and maybe even your safety are at risk. Trout’s licensed electricians can respond to your call at any time of day or night, weekdays and weekends alike. We’re the best troubleshooters in the Southern California area. You won’t ever have to wait for parts. Our trucks are stocked from our very own warehouse. In most cases, we’ll resolve your problem in a single visit, whatever the issue. Our consistent 5 star reviews are a clear signal from our customers that not only do we fix it right, we do the work safely and at a fair price.
Electrical Outlets & Switches
Today, you have far more options for outlets and switches, which are evolving almost as fast as smart phones! You may want to install smart outlets for your new smart home, 3-way switches and dimmer switches that give you more control over the lighting ambiance of your living room or studio space, or switches that can be programmed to work with various assistants and apps. Trout Electric can not only repair any older outlets and switches that aren’t working, we can replace your “dumb” outlets and switches with newer, energy-saving smart versions.
Lighting Installation & Repair
New lights can make all the difference in a home, creating a softer, safer, and much more pleasant atmosphere and saving you a tidy sum on future electric bills. Trout has installed every kind of indoor and outdoor lighting system imaginable, including drop ceiling lights, chandeliers, bathroom lights, kitchen lights, sconces, and outdoor porch lights. We’ll help you pick the best system for your money, wire your new lighting system with dimmer switches, or configure complete smart light systems that work via voice command or apps that can turn lights on or off at certain times of the day or from a distance.
GFI/GFC Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters
GFI outlets are specialty fixtures designed to prevent electric shock in areas where water or moisture is prevalent. The areas where you should consider GFI outlets include bathrooms, the kitchen, swimming pools and hot tubs, and any outdoor outlets that may be exposed to rain or sprinklers. Upgrading your regular electrical outlets to GFI outlets is an investment in the safety of your family and an insurance policy against potential accidents.
Are you renovating or remodeling a portion of your home to add space, eliminate existing walls, accommodate new appliances and lighting, and so on? We can update or reconfigure wiring circuits, move outlets and add energy-saving dimmer switches, install new canister lighting and ceiling fans, and even transform your living spaces into much smarter areas that can be controlled remotely. When it’s time to remodel, renovate, or upgrade your electrical system, call us to collaborate with you from the beginning.
Older homes may have been wired with aluminum or strung with lighter wire that can’t handle higher AMPs. This becomes a real problem as you add new appliances, gadgets, and devices, as you discover that limited wiring and outlets in your home are inadequate, especially when you purchase that electric car you always wanted and learn that it may take up to 20 hours to charge it on a slow but safe level 1 charger! Trout Electric can upgrade your wiring to make it much safer, more efficient, and to equip it for the greater demands of the 21st century.
Ceiling Fan Installation
Moving air or stagnant air? Everyone knows there’s no comparison — a warm room with circulating air can be comfortable for most people, whereas a room with dead air can feel stifling. Hot summer days are an inevitability in Southern California. A few ceiling fans around your home will keep everyone happy and productive, save big money on summer air conditioning bills, and potentially halt any thermostat wars. Rather than attempting to do the job yourself or hiring a handyman on the cheap, let Trout’s experienced electricians install your ceiling fans so that they’re safely secured to ceiling joists and correctly wired.
24/7 Emergency Electrical Repairs
When your electrical system breaks, you'll want someone fast, and you'll need someone who can do the job right the very first time. Trout Electric can answer the call at time of day or night, even on weekends and holidays. Trout’s Emergency Troubleshooter Team is like the special forces of electrical repair — made up of the best, most capable electricians in the business. You won't find better electrical troubleshooters anywhere else in Southern California, and we stock all our trucks from our very own warehouse, we'll always be ready with the right parts for your repair. You won't have to wait a week for the part to come in, or pay an arm and a leg for it when it does.
Do You Need an Electrical Service Upgrade?
A home with upgraded electrical wiring, panels, outlets, and switches is a safe home.
According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), electrical problems are the leading cause of fires and property damage in homes, while the Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) reports that problems with home electrical wiring cause approximately 40,000 fires annually and are the primary cause of accidental electrocutions.
Upgrading your electrical service is a smart decision that increases the value of your home, saves energy in the long run, and ultimately keeps your family safe. But the job shouldn't be enrusted to just anyone. Get the peace of mind that comes from a home electrical system installed and maintained by Trout Electric's certified, expert electricians.
