When someone asks Matt Przymierski how he got started in the electrical field, he’ll candidly explain it was nearly random, a trade he chose in high school for no particular reason. It turned out to be a fortunate choice, because he grew to love what he does. As it turns out, he also has a talent for it, as evidenced by his path from high rises in the city to his own company in Boston’s western suburbs.
After graduating from technical school with a certificate in electrical technology, Przymierski worked for an electrical contractor for 10 years. He then worked for seven years as a foreman in the Boston electrical union, leading the electrical portion of large construction projects. He said, “I like the feeling of starting with an empty building and seeing how it looks at the end, with everything working in the final package.”
Last year, Przymierski started LIT Electric, a family-run business serving commercial and residential buildings in Hopkinton and nearby towns. His reason for taking this recent turn was not random. “My own business provides me with more independence and flexibility. That’s important for my family life at this point,” he said.
LIT Electric performs a whole range of work, from adding recessed lighting to give a room an updated look, to fixing an electrical problem with a boiler, to completing all the wiring for additions and new construction. A recent popular request is for electrical vehicle chargers. “A lot of people have been buying EVs and they want a charger at their home, so we’ve been installing those,” he said. “In many cases, they also need an electrical panel upgrade.”
That is not the only reason homeowners need to upgrade their panels, Przymierski explains. “Especially in decades-old houses, the electrical panels are only 100 amps. When a house had fewer appliances and electronics, that was fine. Then people start installing things like air conditioners or pool pumps, and now, car chargers. The circuits begin to trip. That’s a sign to contact us about getting a 200-amp panel.”
That is the exact situation that led Sean D. from Medfield to LIT Electric. “My house was built in the 1960s, and I drive an electric car,” he shared. “LIT Electric upgraded my entire electric panel and outdoor meter from the original to a 200-amp service and installed my car charger. I had an estimate right away and the work started within a week of my sign-off. The value was unmatched, and the customer service is top notch. Matt walked me through the process. Not sure what more you could ask for.”
Przymierski is gratified by his team giving 100 percent, not cutting corners and completing the job correctly. “Most people don’t know much about their electrical systems,” he said. “When they have a problem that needs to be fixed, they shouldn’t have to worry about getting taken. We are their quality electrical contractor with reasonable prices.”
