Electrician needed

‘Tis the season for holiday cheer, large amounts of food, and obviously nasty electrical gremlins to pop up and bite us in the ass at inopportune times. We are currently experiencing a power outage to one part of our house. Whilst trying to locate the problem, we discovered that we still have old knob and tube wiring mixed in with newer wiring, even though everything is tied to a modern breaker. We have been searching high and low for a loose wire somewhere, but now fear that the old knob and tube wiring has finally just fried itself leaving us in the dark. Can anyone in the PDD community recommend a good local electrician with a vast knowledge of the old-school knob- and tube-style wiring?

I've been very impressed with Dick Wester of Park Electric.

I'd suggest Jim Corbin of Corbin Electric or the guys at Electric Systems.

I second Electric Systems, in particular Zach Tillman who seemed to find our weird old house wiring an enjoyable challenge.

I would second Jim Corbin. I worked with him back in the early eighties. Honest and talented.

I've had Zach from Electric Systems over a few times.  Same kind of wiring at my place and he does seem to enjoy finding "gremlins."
