"Nathan provided Professional Electrical service in our home to remove old baseboard heaters and replace with 5 new heaters. His work was excellent - fast, efficient, problems solved, and neatly cleaned up afterwards. Thank you for job well done! I'll definitely call Nathan again for our next electrical job. Nathan was knowledgeable, skilled, confident, pleasant & respectful in our home. I highly recommend Nathan & his electrical skills to anyone needing work done well the first time."



"Thank you to Nathan and his employees. Carmanah Electric are now our first call for all of our electrical work. They provided top notch work for our kitchen renovation. Efficient, on time, and a pleasure to have in our home."


- Stacey [nanaimo]

"I cut through not one, but both of my 100 foot electrical cords this spring, and called Nathan’s company Carmanah Electric on a Sunday to see if he would fix them for me. He told me I didn't have to drop the cords off to his place of business, as it was a quick job and he would be able to do it from his truck at my home one day this week between jobs. True to his word, he called me right before he dropped by to fix them. Unfortunately I didn't have the right parts needed to fix them, so Nathan actually ran out and purchased the right ends for me and then fixed them in my driveway. I would recommend this company to anyone who remembers what good service and customer relationships is all about. Nathan came through on both for me, in spades! Great job Nathan... you have my continued business."



"Prior to opening his own business, Nathan has done many projects for us over the past four years of remodelling our home. He essentially re-wired most of our house and did a number of handyman projects for us as well. He was reasonable, reliable, hard-working and did excellent work. Highly recommend him to anyone. Apropos of nothing, he is also a great guy and a pleasure to have around, which is important when in your home. We plan to have him come back and re-wire our garage next."
