Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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?

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

Robert is an excellent electrician - very knowledgeable, neat, efficient and professional. He replaced a bunch of heavy fixtures and installed new outlets. The quality and efficiency of the job was highly commendable. We would not look anywhere else for future electrical needs. Highly recommend!!

Here is my review and I am not complaining but sharing my experience ISSUE: 2 plug point was not working, I called Jams Electric and after his analysis he found that, in one of the point there was loose connection and he fixed that by tightening the wire and all was working fine, but once he left within 30 mins again same problem happened, when I called him, he said if he comes and check he is going to charge again same amount which he took. CONCLUSION: he will come and fix the same problem and I will have to “pay again” for the same job he did 30 mins ago amazing!! VERY IMPORTANT NOTE: he will not give any guarantee of his work “THAT IS WHAT HE SAID”, he will fix but will not give any guarantee, so you will pay for the service but will not get any guarantee. I paid 2 times the same job for analysis and fixing. Stay away from this kind of electrician, if his fix works fine then OK but if it doesn't work then you will be in a bad situation like me. License electrician works and fixes the problem but not giving any guarantee is very unusual, so tomorrow after he fixes the problem and due to his negligence if fire or short circuit happens , he will not be responsible “KEEP THAT IN MIND”. I will try to get in touch with "Department of Consumer Affairs Contractors State License Board" who issues license to electrician to understand if this is normal. Thanks, -Subrato

Recently moved to the area and searched for my go-to electrician for the past month and a half. Contacted Bookerboyz Electric regarding a fan and speaker wiring install and Capri was out at my home within a day to help me out. Professionalism was top notch but the honesty (which is extremely hard to find these days) was what made Bookerboyz Electric my go-to company. Having Capri back for more outlet installs/breaker upgrades/etc. Thanks again!

Working Paigel Electric was a pleasure! Not only did Saul respond to my needed task promptly but the quote he gave me for my lighting fixture installation was super competitive compared to all other electricians I reached out to. He came the very next day and was even able to come earlier than he anticipated! He was very professional and quick and even took the time to walk me through and price out another electrical project I have on my wish list. I will definitely be using their services again and would recommend to anyone!

Saul from Pagiel Electric is an expert electrician with many years of experience leading a crew of electricians. He ventured out on his own in the past year. I didn't know any of this when I selected him for my difficult solar panel problem. I recently discovered that my 46 solar panels installed in 2009 had been offline for 6 months. I called the local solar company and they charged me $500 to provide an estimate and possible fix. At the end of their service, they said the remedy was to replace all the wiring and the inverters for all 46 panels at a cost of $7,500+tax. So that led me to Thumbtack to seek alternatives. I got a quote up front from Pagiel, he arrived early having finished his prior job early, and got to work right away. In about 3 hours he replaced a faulty wire in conduit, replaced a breaker sub-panel and components inside. After a few minutes, my panels were back online and my meter was running backward - sending power to PG&E! Pagiel Electric showed up with the required supplies and tools to fix the job in one visit based only on a few photos I supplied. I am grateful to Saul for his expertise and professionalism and would not hesitate to use him again or recommend him for any electrical job.

Michael was in contact with us to let us know he would be a little late, which was fine..when he showed up, he was very professional and tried to take care of our job. We have a older home and he suggested for us to seek a licensed electrician because he didn’t feel comfortable trying to the repairs..he suggested a new panel because of the age of the home.. he very well could have wired up our new light but he had the honesty to be truthful which we greatly appreciate..we would recommend Michael, he’s a very nice and honest young man..
