The guy from IMAS Electric was very friendly and helpful as he explained the cause for my electrical problems with my ceiling lights and fan during his repairs. He also educated me about LED lightbulbs and the correct ones to purchase that can help prevent future problems as well as save me money. I would highly recommend him to service any electrical needs.
