called to get an estimate to have extensive electric work done. Gentleman showed up, wrote estimate and then asked how we were paying for the 49$ "trip fee". I said the WHAT?! Apparently Lowry charges a trip fee of $49 to come provide an estimate. Who doesnt provide free estimates anymore? He said to call the office and try to have it waived since we were not notified of this when we called to schedule the appointment. I called and was informed "NO" we cannot waive the fee. Well, its a shame Lowry just lost a $10,000 job due to not waiving a stupid trip fee. Oh, and by the way, they will not leave the estimate for you unless you pay the $49. NO THANK YOU!!!

absolutely over priced. can't rate their work because their fees are so out of this world i would never hire them. the act like they're doctors. i literally got the same work done for me for 1/3 of the price they quoted me just for their service charge and "diagnostic" fees. yes...those are different fees.

I had a plumbing project of changing two individual values for a washing machine. They were old and stuck open. I wanted to change to an individual lever value along with replacing about four feet of pvc piping with cooper. I had the water turned off and the lines bled in the house. When Lowry arrived, the plumber was very professional. But, when he quoted me a price of $887 for the job, I almost fell over. When I asked about the price, he told me that it is expensive to own a house and it is what it is. I had priced all the parts at Home Depot earlier. It was around $80. So needless to say, I wasn't going to pay $800 in labor for a 90 minute job at most. I would use caution if you ever use Lowry with pricing. I would never even think about using any of Lowry's service after this.

I was putting up some Christmas lights and blew a circuit. What a bummer. We needed someone fast. I looked on the internet and found LOWRY. They sent a technician out the same day and he fixed my problem with the circuit. The tech was a true professional.

Beware of Lowry - the tech walked in and arrogantly proclaimed "we are the most expensive electricians in PA", rolled his eyes said he did not want the job he was coming out to do. Double talked and cheated us. Very poor customer service, very dissatisfied, will not use or recommend Lowry to ANYONE.

Steer clear - very disrespectful to female homeowners.
Lowry came out to my house and quoted a price for a job. I was grossly overcharged (almost $600) to trip a switch! When the tech left, same problem, naturally. I was told to either spend more money or get a credit and NEVER CALL LOWRY again! the nerve! Lowry tried to rob me blind because I was not present when the job (if it can be called that) was done. NOT.

It was over 90 degrees when my AC went down (Go figure!) I called Lowry Heating and Cooling. The tech was very polite and professional and he got my AC running in about a hour. The service call was a little over $317 (a little pricy) but they were able to come out when I needed them.

I usually do not us this kind of message, however, I am so pleased with the service reguarding our AC. We used another company for 5 years and were not happy with them. We tried Lowry after seening them on TV. The tech was fantastic, professional, courteous, knowledgeable and answered all my questions. There is no comparison between Lowry and the others.

In a day when everyone is so quick to find fault in the way a job is done. I am however writing a short note to commend the find job Lowry did at my home. After almost electrocuting myself twice, my wife INSISTED no more electric work for me. The tech gave me a great price for the services and took the time to explaining what I did wrong without making me feel like a idiot. I intend to use Lowry all my electrical, heating and cooling needs in the future.

I've read the reviews and I have one thing to say, "You get what you pay for". There may be cheaper prices, but in the long run it's better to get it done right, the first time. Lowry Electric, provides great customer service with a 100% guaruntee for all their work. If you have any issue -call them and talk to them. I have never dealt with a company that asked me, "what can we do to make you happy?" And then backed it up. They care about their customers and their company, which is more than a lot of places these days. And if that means that the price is a little higher, then I'll pay for a better product and service. I support local businesses, and I would recommend them to anyone.

This past week our central air conditioner stopped producing cool air. My husband called Lowry Electric. We had a service man come out the same day. He said we were low on freon.
Within 15 minutes we had cool air. We were handed a bill.
$89 charged for the service call. $291.10 charged for 10 ounces of freon. Less then 1 lb. We had to call another company, as we found out the unit was leaking, still.
We called Rineer Co. We were charged for the service call, naturally, and $30.00 for 2 Lbs of freon. How can that be??
We are elderly, on a fixed income(both of us are disabled.)
The gall of that company charging $291.10 for less then 1 lb.
of freon. We are sad and angry that Lowry "stole" our money.
I am posting this today to let other potential customers be alerted. I am calling their billing office today, to request a refund for being over charged. I will also notify the BBB.
They are thiefs. Please, please avoid this company.
Thank you for listening to my story.

Lowry came to my house to service my AC. Technician was polite and diagnosed problem as a bad fan motor. He then showed me the price of a new fan motor and install. I almost fell over. $1,065.00 (which included the $89.00 service call fee). While he was at his truck, I wrote down the part number for the motor and went into my house and Googled the fan motor. $120.00! I couldn't believe the nerve and price gouging that was going on. I would never use LOWRY or call them again, unless it was to diagnose a problem. I ended up going to a local supplier and getting the motor for $108.00. It took me 40 minutes to install......Lowry also tried to sell me a complete unit (my ac unit was 12 years old) which was fine, but not to the tune of $6100.....for just the AC! NO Heater! They should be ashamed of themselves to charge such high prices....STAY AWAY

Lowry Electric is definitely friendly and polite, but they grossly overcharge. I learned this the hard way. $800 for a ceiling fan install. Although it did require wiring and a box, I probably overpaid around $500.

Lowry also quoted me around $3200 to install two attic fans. Just got a quote from a smaller shop for $750 all in, before a 10% first time customer discount.

So for what it's worth, beware the big company with 20 trucks. You will be paying for those more than the work. The almighty dollar outweighs the personal traits on this one. 1 Star.

We had Lowry's come out and give us an estimate to replace a relay switch. Almost $900!!! They told us the switch was very expensive and hard to find.

We found the switch at a local electric store for $97 and had another electrician install it in less than an hour for $75.

Lowry's fees are utterly unreasonable and the equivalent of price gouging.
I'd NEVER recommend them to anyone.

I had Lowry come out for a simple job of installing ONE electrical outlet in my family room. They quoted $1200+ for this job and when we said no, they charged $49 for the visit. The next day, we called M.T. Ruhl. They gave us a free estimate and did the job for $200.

Lowry Electric is very professional and they do a good job but they are very expensive. They do provide an upfront cost so you do not have use them but it will cost you $50 for the service call and estimate. If you feel like it costs too much (and you probably will) then send them packing because you will be able to find it cheaper somewhere else. Maybe not as reliable but cheaper.

We had Lowry over not too long ago to redo our electrical box. The electrician was very polite, neat (he even put on those shoe coverings), and gave us an estimate up front before he started working. They also have this membership program that entitles you to 25% off work done. We signed up for it even though it was for 89.99 because the money we saved was way more than the cost of membership.

We've had Lowry come out several times when we first moved in and they have always done a great job. One of the last times they came out, we had several outlets updated (to 3 prongs). They gave us an estimate right there and the electrician was also very friendly. Their prices are very reasonable although I'm sure you could find a lower price if you shopped around. But if you need something done asap and want it done well this is a great place to call.
