I had a presumably complex requirement to install an outdoor electrical outlet, along with concealed wiring from inside my garage. I had contacted multiple individuals and did not feel enough confident to engage them, based on how they explained they would do it. When Donrico (Discount Selections & Services), visited my home, he understood that I wanted the job to be done with minimum cuts to Drywall and he assured me of the same. Sure enough, he did it very well, with just one small cut on the Drywall. He had right tools, skill and patience needed for this kind of work. I am extremely happy with the service I received from him.See more

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

Highly recommend AZ Electric. I have a rental property and the tenants were noticing issues with power surges. Found AZ Electric on thumbtack and they were prompt to reply and provide times they could be onsite, that day. In addition to diagnosing and repairing the issue, I also asked them to check a few more items in the condo and they went above an beyond to even provide photos of their work. Highly recommend, professional and value priced electrician.

Alen moved/installed exterior lights, fixed outlets, wiring and switches that were left incomplete by former electrician. He was able to troubleshoot all our electrical needs and "clean up" the mess we had been left with from someone else. Work also included adding dimmer switches, undercabinet LED lighting on switches, adding new outlets, and replacing out of date outkets. He will be back soon to do additional work for us.

Hector was quick to respond, was on time (actually early ) , and did great work . He is not only very polite , but very knowledgeable. I have several electrical related projects that will require an electrician. Hector was quick to offer his insight and expertise and was not pushy in asking for any future business . He was willing to take his time to offer his help with no expectation for work in return. I’ll reward that professionalism and hire him again. I highly recommend him to anyone that needs some electrical work done . Great job .

Hire Them!!! Jesus is very professional, punctual, knowledgeable, pays attention to detail, goes above and beyond!!! I was in the middle of a kitchen and bathroom remodel and unfortunately, my contractor dropped the ball on several things, so I had to hire an electrician. I spoke to Jesus on Thursday and he was able to come out that same day to provide an estimate. He then worked Friday, Saturday and Sunday to finish my project! He run the electricity and installed 3 pendant lights in a cathedral ceiling, run electricity and hang new sconces and vanity lights. Change all outlets, put dimmers, hooked up my cooktop and updates my electric panel. Jesus is very knowledgeable about codes. I truly appreciated he was so cautious of my new kitchen island and covered it fully. He didn’t even put one tool on it! He also has a contact to great dry wall guy that did an excellent job!! I will be referring my family and friends to him!
