Dave Rongey - Ask The Electrician


Hi!, I'm Dave Rongey. For over 40 years, I have enjoyed all aspects of electrical work from custom homes to industrial wiring and building automation. I'm also an avid "Do It Yourself er", where I prefer to do most of our home improvement related tasks myself, however there are some projects that I hire experienced professionals to take care of. Let me work with you on your home electrical projects and increase the value of your beautiful home. I'll be packing years of experience into the pages of this website and project guides which have simple Step-By-Step instructions most anyone can follow.

Not long ago I decided to share my several years of electrical experience so others could enjoy the ability to perform several electrical wiring projects and improve the safety and comfort of their home, and have some fun in the process.

As a Licensed Electrical Contractor, I have seen too many diy home owner type projects that are serious fire and safety hazards that well meaning people have performed! "I don't want you to take a chance on doing your next project wrong and becoming a headline in your home town newspaper!"

Since 1972, I have been working in the electrical industry with experience in residential, commercial and industrial areas of new construction, additions and remodels. I have been recognized for saving thousands of dollars by implementing Energy Management and Building Automation projects for large facilities in leading fortune 500 companies. I have participated in several energy reduction projects with local electric utility companies where I helped customers reduce their electricity consumption. My love for wiring Custom Homes in some of the most beautiful areas in California and for some of the nicest people on earth has produced a level of satisfaction my family and I now enjoy.

My desire is that Ask-The-Electrician.Com will help you on your journey to learn about home electrical wiring. This is a unique resource that provides you with more detailed instruction packed with over 40 years of hands-on experience.

With a track record of successful projects of all types and sizes, I am helping people everywhere realize their dream of saving money and enhancing their home with beautiful electrical projects, increased safety, and security - as well as helping others join us in one of the most rewarding careers with endless opportunities within the electrical trade.

In addition to working domestically here in the USA, I have had the privilege to be involved in several trips to other countries where I performed electrical wiring projects. I love learning about other people and cultures, and enjoy helping others in need. Helping in this capacity encourages others and makes a difference in the local community.

A portion of the revenue generated from this website for advertising and published materials are used to help support projects including education, building and construction. These projects are located domestically here in the U.S.A. and also in other developing areas of the world. Our involvement is either by helping personally, or by helping to provide support for teams of qualified individuals.

I would like to help you too, and that is what this website is all about, sharing my life long occupation with others.

I'm looking forward to working with you on your next project!

Be Safe, and Be Careful,
Dave Rongey
