Rebecca S. says, "Jeffrey has been the go-to handyman for my own and my investment properties since 2012. I'm grateful for the peace of mind he's given me through the years. He takes care of all our maintenance and repairs, from small jobs such as leaky faucet fixes, electrical repairs, to complete replacement of windows and doors. He does it all! My tenants and I appreciate that he's always courteous and conscientious. The best part is I can count on his work to stand the test of time.

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.

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 have had not quality electricians screwed over my house and my renovation projects and ended costed more to fix the damages. Jay may not be your lowest price electrician but he is smart to find the most efficient way to solve your electrical problem and his quality of workmanship is great. I highly recommend Jay and will definitely continue to work with him again.

The nicest guy and so helpful! He helped to fix a mistake a previous electrician made. We didn’t have some parts on hand so he ran to Home Depot to get them. So so thankful!

Agreed to a date and time but did not arrive. Did not even call to advise he was not coming. After waiting more than 1 hour, I called to inquire when he was arriving, and he said he was going to another job instead. I had to find another electrician.

My husband and I were looking for an electrician to install new outlets and and new j-box with ceiling fan. Omer responded right away and was able to come out on the weekend to install them. He and his team came by when scheduled and kept our house clean and communicated with us throughout the process. Great service and would definitely recommend.

Milton was very knowledgeable and responsive in the work I needed to have done at our house. He gave me a fair quote and showed up on time to do the work. He was able to quickly get the job done and also helped with some other electrical items that need to be taken care around the house. Overall I am very happy with his work and would recommend him without any hesitation anyone needing a honest electrician.

Ted is an amazing electrician and a true professional in his trade. He installed our outdoor lights for his first job with me. He did a perfect job on them and even ran the wires under the house to avoid having them stick out near the wall of the house. His team left the outdoor area clean and perfect. After that job, I hired him again to install WiFi light switches and he did a great job in an efficient manner. His cost was very responsible and he was always on time. My schedule needed him to work on Saturday at 715am and he was never late. And just recently I hired him again to install recessed lights in my basement media room. He did a wonderful job and found the perfect covers for them to match the room. He definitely deserves 5+ stars.
