I have been a customer of Heffernan Electric since 2008. They have always given prompt professional service regardless of the size of the job.   I have hired them for major renovation projects, installation of an automatic backup generator and small jobs.  All completed with the same level of excellence. I have recommended them many times to home owners and other contractors.

Over the past number of years, I have been doing a lot of renovations both at my mother's home and at my own.  I have always used Heffernan Electric as the contractor for all my electrical needs. Their work is excellent, their technicians are friendly, respectful and competent.  Their service is first class, they are reliable - they keep their appointments.
