How much does a licensed electrician cost per hour?

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.

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.

Does an electrician need to enter my home?

Whether an electrician needs to enter your home depends on the type of work that needs to be completed. Any work on receptacles, lights and more located on the inside or outside of your house will likely require an electrician to enter your home.

Ask electricians in your area to perform a video consultation instead of a traditional walk-through to assess the project. During the consultation, they should be able to tell you if they’ll need to enter your home or not.

I needed a switch in my garage repaired, and when I showed the problem to Jessee, he told me right away I needed the garage door company to come out, not an electrician. He didn't charge me for the visit, which was very sweet.

Joe at HelixTech was AMAZING!!! We had issues with our main electrical panel as well as electrical issues to our pool equipment. The company that did the electrical work initially never returned our calls. We tried a few other electricians that were referred to us, but they wouldn’t show up or couldn’t do the job. So we did a search and found HelixTech on Thumbtack. We sent a description of our issues to HelixTech and immediately got a response from Joe. He was able to come out the next day and quickly assessed the issues and had a plan to fix everything. He was back the following day with new parts and had everything fixed in in a short time. Joe was very professional, knowledgeable and thoroughly explained everything he was doing. We couldn’t be happier with the work and the overall experience working with Joe and highly recommend him to anyone looking for an electrician.

Was first impressed at the ratings given this firm and requested a quote. Joe responded quickly and completed the following work two days later: Installed 3 ceiling fans, corrected circuit switches for best fan operations, installed 3 outlets to include two needed for new outdoor gas grill. Corrected some issues from previous poor wiring. I am really glad we had this company do our work. They are true professionals who know their business and are willing to explain the requirements. All this work was done with a very reasonable price. They will definitely be our "GO TO" electricians for future work we have in mind.

I can’t thank Connor enough for his hard work on the job he did at our new home. We were “no-showed” by an electrician and needed our job turned around around before moving into our home. I called Connor literally 12 hours before needing him to show up and he was there. The job ended up being a little more demanding than originally thought due to the weight of my chandeliers and height of ceilings but he held true to his word and pricing. He was courteous and very personable and was able to work around other trades and movers with ease. I will be calling him for future work and recommending him to all of my friends and family.
