We've helped countless homeowners in Stratford just like you that need everything from small outlet repairs to complete electrical system upgrades for older homes. Whatever you need, we'll provide a solution built to last for many years to come.

In addition to home electrical installations, we are also able to diagnose and repair residential problems, such as broken outlets, excessive energy consumption, and flickering lights. For all repairs, we'll address the underlying issue for a complete solution instead of an electrical patch job that will need further fixes down the road.

For residential and commercial clients, much of our work revolves around new installations, whether it's washers and dryers for the home or a piece of industrial equipment for a factory. Regardless of what's being installed or where we know how to evaluate its power needs and make sure the installation is done correctly.

The reason why it's a good idea to leave new installations to the professionals at IHS Electric is that an improper installation can lead to many different problems, ranging from excessive energy consumption or appliance failure to an overloaded circuit that can create a dangerous situation. With us, you can be sure that your electrical system is safe and that your investment is protected.

All of our new electrical installations come with the signature IHS Electric quality. For the work at hand, we'll always use the highest grade of materials available, and from our suppliers, you’re sure to get a great price.

If you've noticed common problems like power surges, repeatedly tripped breakers, or higher than average electricity bills, there's a good chance that your property needs a professional electrical inspection. Affordable and detail-oriented, IHS Electric can provide thorough inspections to discover even the most minute issues that could be causing electrical problems.

While much of our inspection and troubleshooting work involves finding a solution for redundant wiring or overloaded circuits, IHS Electric is also available for routine inspections related to commercial safety, home maintenance, rental units, and property sales. A clean bill of health from an electrical contractor ensures that your property's safety and value are always kept at their utmost potential.

Local businesses are often required to have electrical inspections on a regular basis by a third party. We currently provide this service to many companies in the area and can assist your property stay in compliance with electrical regulations.
