How much does a licensed electrician cost per hour?

What do I need an electrician for?

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.

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 couldn't have hired a better electrician! Eugene was personable, professional and friendly and really knew his stuff! He fixed my light in minutes and even helped me with other issues around the house, all within 1 hour! His number is saved in my phone now because it's rare you find a professional who goes above and beyond like Eugene did. Great guy and great electrician! Highly recommend!

I needed to upgrade my electric power to 240v x 30amp. I went through 4 electricians that gave me really high price. Luckily I found Justin. He was very professional and take the time to explain all my questions. Gave me fair price and the work was excellent. I definitely saved his numbers for future work. Highly recommended you give him a try.

Rob was quick to respond to all of my inquires. Mark the electrician that was sent out was a pleasure to have work on our projects. They were quick to complete and also offered suggestions. Mark even went on a man hunt to locate our special order baseboards and troubleshooted our range hood. He left the house tidy and did a walk through upon completion. Plan to use them again... infact, already requested a quote for a bigger project!

The electrician was very responsive when he was trying to get the job. Once completed the job only wanted cash, said if he did something wrong he will be back, he fixed the exterior lights on the garden but at nights the lights did not turned on, I think he forgot to set the timer, texted him to let him know on Saturday today is Wednesday and I never heard back from him. Someone else fixed it. I will never hire him or recommend.

We had a great experience with Tonny and his staff. Tonny gave us great suggestions and a fair price for the work we needed done. They were punctual and kept the work area clean. They finished the work within the specified timeframe and the room has a much more finished look and not the original cluttered lighting that we originally moved into. Our only regret is that we didn’t do it sooner but at least now we found a great electrician for any future needs. Thanks guys.

We just moved into a house that had a bunch of small electrical issues, nothing crazy, but a lot of little things that needed addressing. Leo gave us a great quote and was really easy to get along with. He was also very easy to communicate with and answered texts quickly. His work was great too! He explained everything he was doing in detail, making it easy to understand and took care of all of our issues. We are really grateful to have a great electrician in our back pocket now and will be calling him whenever we have issues in the future for sure. Thanks, Leo!
