Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much does it cost to have an outlet installed?

If you plan on hiring a professional electrician to install an outlet, expect to pay $75 to $500, or an average of $210. But for an accurate cost estimate, you need to contact a few electrical outlet installers near you.

The light switch and outlet types may impact your cost. The location of the outlet also matters, as the electrician may have to route additional wiring and may not have access to existing wiring. If you need the outlet childproofed, this may also cost more.

Do I need an electrician to add an outlet?

Generally, this is a job best left to a licensed professional. A licensed electrician will be able to install your outlet using the most up-to-date code practices. If you need any permits to perform the install, the electrician should also be able to obtain them for you.

Do I need a permit to install GFCI outlets?

Depending on where you live, you likely need a permit to install GFCI outlets. When in doubt, get in contact with your local government, and ask a licensed electrician to perform your electrical work.

Hiring Madan Electric ended up being an excellent experience. The electrician was professional, hard-working, an excellent problem solver and charged a fair and reasonable price. I had him replace 25 electrical outlets/wall switches, install 2 light fixtures, repair 2 electrical outlets and install one complicated ceiling fan. I was looking for a good electrician for an ongoing relationship and hit the jackpot.

I had a few new outlets and breakers installed by Coast Electric Co. They were very responsive and accommodating to my needs. The work was done in a few hours. The electrician also made sure to test out the new outlets in front of me to make sure everything was working before leaving.

Quality work and very professional. They came by earlier to install a few outdoor outlets; not only did they exceed my expectations but they did it in a timely matter. I’d recommend them for any electrical work needed.

Rami did an excellent job on our electrical work! He gave us a very fair price and was super responsive regarding the job and his availability. On the day he was able to finish installing four outdoor lights and two outlets extremely quickly and effectively. Also he made sure to check in with us after the job was done to make sure things were working properly. Recommend Madan electric for any electrical work you need in the la!!

Eddie did a great job. I requested a quote to install an outdoor electrical outlet to support my tankless water heater. He provided a reasonable quote and provided excellent quality. Eddie was punctual, he arrived and accessed the best location, and completed the job in a reasonable time. To include, Eddie had no problem answering any additional questions concerning my homes electrical system. I will recommend E.E.S. Electric to my family and friends and I’ll definitely use him in the future.

Mario did far more than install a few outlets, he went above and beyond to help me with multiple electrical issues and at an incredibly fair price. Highly recommend Mario! I am an interior designer and work with sub contractors all the time and he is an exceptional one!

A++ work installing a new outlet in our home so we could plug in a new washer and dryer. While on the job, Israel also offered to re-wire our doorbell and did a great job on that as well. Israel is professional, kind, and highly skilled. We're grateful for his services, and he'll be our first call for any future electrical needs.

I had a 240V outlet installed for an EV charger. Milton made a recommendation that saved me hundreds of dollars when other electricians were not as creative. Unlike other contractors I've worked with, Milton and his team showed up and didn't leave until the work was done. The whole team was very professional and communicative. I was extremely pleased overall. I'm definitely hiring him again. I would highly recommend Cabrera Electrical Services.

Milton and his son were exceedingly professional and friendly. I have worked with several electrical companies, and I must say Milton is Highly skilled, very efficient and an experienced electrician. Clean working habits. They cleaned their work space. Tested the outlets to ensure all in great working condition. Went above and beyond the scope of the project and patched the holes resulting from installing the outlets as well as patching unrelated holes in the closet. Their price was fair and competitive. Quick response time and scheduling. Spoke with him yesterday afternoon and he finished the project today. Will highly recommend this company and use their services in the future. I couldn’t have been more pleased! Thank you

Milton Cabrera has done three jobs for our family. I was in need of having a 220 volt outlet installed in my kitchen. He was great and everything worked amazing, next I asked him to install a sub panel for my ADU, he did another fantastic job for us. Next I asked him to rewire our entire 1942 home. He once again delivered on his promise. Bottom line is he is the best electrician I have ever hired and he has a great staff. Look no further - no job is too small or too big for Milton and his team. He is responsive, honest and professional. Also his quote was 50% less than most other large corporates electrical contractors.
