Your burning questions: answered

What do I need an electrician for?

Electricians can help with a variety of electricity-related jobs around your home. If you have a new home, they can install new wiring throughout. Or if you have an old home, they can help with wiring repair. 

If your lights keep flickering, circuit breakers seem to be faulty, or outlets don’t have any power, electricians can assist in sorting out the problem. Your house is full of electrical circuits, wiring and sockets that may need repair or updating. These tasks can be safely completed by electricians in your area.

How much does a licensed electrician cost per hour?

An electrician’s average hourly rate is $75, but this price can range from $45-$120, depending on the complexity of the job and the materials needed. The total cost will also vary depending on how long your job takes and if the electrician charges for travel time.

Your location may also be a factor in determining the hourly rate of performing electrical work on your home. To get an accurate estimate of how much electrical work will cost you, contact the best electricians near you to receive free quotes.

How do I hire an electrician?

Go online to find a list of the best electricians in your area. View each individual electrician’s profile and learn more about their services and expertise. Then, read reviews from satisfied customers as well as any issues they may have encountered. This will help you find one with the right experience to work safely in your home.

You should also spend some time researching what qualifications and credentials they have. You might find information about their license on their profile, or you might need to check your local and state government’s website to verify their license. 

Once you’ve done a bit of research, ask to receive free estimates from several electricians in your area. Ultimately, hire the most qualified electrician who can complete your project at a reasonable price.

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with an electrician during the COVID-19 pandemic?

To set up an appointment or consultation with an electrician during the COVID-19 pandemic, ensure that you are performing as much of the process digitally as possible. The best way to begin is by conducting an online search for local electricians. Ask if they can perform consultations over a phone or video call to comply with social distancing mandates. You should also discuss a strategy for how to complete the project during social distancing or whether the project should be completed once the pandemic has ended.

Do electricians do free estimates?

Yes, they do. Whether you’re looking for new electrical work or wiring repair, the electrician should offer you a free estimate. 

Go online to find the best electricians near you. After researching and finding a few pros who seem qualified for your job, go ahead and request a quote to find out how much those electricians will charge you.

What questions should I ask an electrician?

Here are a few questions you should ask any electrician you’re considering hiring:

  • Are you licensed or certified? A professional electrician should have this information ready and up to date. 
  • Do you have any references? Ask for references to learn about their work history from previous customers. You may be able to look online at reviews, but it’s also good to speak to someone to find out their experience with this electrician. 
  • What types of services do you offer? Whether you need repairs or installation services, make sure the electrician can perform the work you need.
  • How long will the job take? This will help you set expectations and rearrange your schedule (if needed).
  • Can you send me free estimates? Request a job quote or estimate. This will help with comparing different electricians. The numbers may vary, but be sure to factor in the experience of each person, as well as the scope of electrical work you’re asking about.

Contact the best electricians near you today to start receiving free estimates for your project.

Is it worth it to hire an electrician?

Yes, it's usually worth it to hire an electrician instead of doing the work yourself.

Electrical work can be very dangerous. The pros spend many years working and studying before they become licensed and certified. That knowledge and training can help them work safely and perform the job without harming themselves or your home. 

Even a small wiring repair job can be unsafe if not done correctly. Hiring someone that has specialized training on how to do each specific job is the safest choice.

How can I find out if an electrician is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

Guidelines are available from both local and federal government agencies to clarify which services qualify as essential during the COVID-19 pandemic. To determine whether an electrician is considered an essential service provider in your area, check your city or state’s government websites.

For federal guidelines, consult CISA’s Identifying Critical Infrastructure During COVID-19 page, which outlines 16 critical infrastructure sectors. But not that some, not all, jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure.

Are there ways to be safe if I hire an electrician when social distancing?

If you decide to hire an electrician, choose virtual platforms for consultations like calling or video chats. Avoid any physical contact with the electrician, wave instead of shaking hands, stay 6 feet away, sanitize shared surfaces and use digital payment apps instead of cash.

Do electricians offer remote or virtual services?

While electrical work is typically performed in person, you may come across some electrician profiles that state the pro is offering remote services. If you do, contact local electricians to discuss your particular project and what type of remote services they may offer.

This father and son team is top-notch . They were the third electricians I had work on my old home's electrical issues and the only ones that had the correct solution for my issues. They were fast efficient and did a wonderful job cleaning up past sloppy work while also upgrading my panel. and adding a new line for my spa. I highly recommend them and am so happy I now have electricians I can call and trust Their prices made it affordable for me to have the work done and thus they gave me a safe home and peace of mind. I am very grateful to this Black Rhino Electric.

A job well done! He came out when it was convenient for me and was able to troubleshoot and resolve my lighting issue. He went just a little over his one hour ETC but only charged me what we agreed on. Ismael is a consumate professional that does solid work; I highly recommend you go with him for your electrician needs!

Ishmael from Mpowered Eléctrical was very knowledgeable and professional. He installed a new receptacle in one room and converted another one from 220v to 110v. He also helped me to mount my 60in flat screen tv on the wall for a modest charge. Mpowered beat the estimates of the other electricians I called and i will be using them for all my future projects.

Jesus is a busy man. Unfortunately, we started off strong with excellent intent and what I thought a solid plan. Our paths kept crossing via text with patience yet I need action. I have no doubt that Jesus company has very good skills that’s why Zi was patient yet I need action after 2 weeks. Sorry Jesus I need to find another electrician. Stay blessed.

Roman really knew what the problem was. I interviewed 2 other electricians and knew they didn't really know what was to be done and they were expensive. Roman was very reasonable and showed me pictures of the problem. He also told me what he was going to do, and the materials he was going to use. To top it all off, he was very personable and had great patience! If I ever have another electrical problem, I'll call Roman immediately!

Ismael provided high value services in a timely manner. The project included improving/amending an upgrade to our household electrical system to allow us to abide by Tucson's building code, correcting a lighting system that was previously malinstalled by a poorly qualified contractor, reviewing and correcting the installation of a ceiling fan and improving electrical outlets in the kitchen in connection with the tiling of a backsplash. Ismael cheerfully did the work during a weekend and mobilized extra help as required without adjusting the cost of the project. He is the best, highly professional electrician I have ever employed.
