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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Can I use digital payments to pay for electrical and wiring repair?

These days, many electricians will accept digital payments for electrical work and wiring repair instead of traditional cash or check. The COVID-19 pandemic has helped speed up the adoption of platforms like PayPal, Zelle, Square Cash, Venmo, Google Pay and others as a means of complying with social distancing guidelines.

As you search for electricians online, ask whether they’ll accept digital payment and set up a strategy for staying safe.

Kainoa was responsive and respectful of the property. Did a great job first diagnosing the problem, fixing other issues left by previous electrician with extra wires and attaching conduit to exterior wall. Highly recommend

Robert was very understanding and worked out a solution for us to hook up our generator to our house for emergency power. He rewired our box which was a mess from prior electricians. the work was excellent. He was very professional and cordial.

AVOID AT ÅLL COSTS. They don't know what they are doing. They were watching YouTube videos on how to install a ceiling fan. After 3 hours of messing around with my wiring, they told me it couldn't be done because there was a ceiling light, not a ceiling fan before. (UM...told you that in the beginning.) Then tried to blame it on the wall mounted remote that came with the unit. Said because it didn't look like the picture in the manual, it couldn't be installed. (Yet it was just installed by an electrician who knows what they are doing and in an hour.) These people will leave your wiring worse off then before they came. None of the lights worked. (The new electrician had to fix that too.) Oh...and they stole a bunch of the screws that go with my unit. (Luckily, the new electrician came equipped.) How can they improve? Don't respond to requests for jobs that you can't handle. Read the request and ask appropriate questions. Don't assume you can do something when you can't. If you provide quotes for work and then find out its not needed, give people a break. Don't lie about the conversation you didn't have. Get some legitimate training. Stop watching YouTube videos in the customer's home or do so before coming to the house. Better yet, stop touching people's wiring and messing it up.

We had a great experience working with Salamat Co. My initial posting looking for an electrician was answered by Salamat super fast, even though it was Sunday. We scheduled an appointment for the very next day. The work was done quickly in a professional manner. We were very happy with the response time, communications with Salamat Co., the quality of work, and the fair price, and the next time we need electrical work done, we will definitely call them again.

Jaime and his team were fantastic! Some of the best contractors we've ever worked with. We received a few quotes for our project and chose 2020 Electric because Jamie is kind and extremely knowledgeable yet very affordable. They installed recessed lighting in our living rooms, corrected a few switches that did not connect to the overhead fixtures, installed a ceiling fan in a bedroom, and added a plug on the wall to mount a TV. The work quality was top notch! Would highly recommend to everyone. No doubt that 2020 Electric will be our go-to electricians.

I needed an outlet added in my master bedroom and contacted Al for help. He responded within a couple minutes saying he would be happy to discuss my project. Less than 10 minutes later, we had spoken and setup an appointment for him to come out later that same day. He showed up on time, took a look at the project, said he could take care of it right away and that it would only take about an hour. I thought his quote was fair so I hired him to take care of it. An hour later, the job was done and everything worked perfectly. I imagined it would take so much longer to find and hire the right person and had been procrastinating about it but I’m so glad I found Al. He was professional and very easy to work with. I would definitely hire him again and can highly recommend him for anyone looking for a great electrician.
