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.

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.

Do electricians offer remote or virtual services?

While electrical work is typically performed in person, you may come across some electrician profiles that state the pro is offering remote services. If you do, contact local electricians to discuss your particular project and what type of remote services they may offer.

Isaac was a great electrician! He was very professional in installing our new ceiling fan and light fixture. He also gave us the quoted price for the work done. We definitely will be requesting new services from him.

What a great experience having an electrician the caliber of Ashwin with Sattvic Energy provide such expert electrical installation services! Everything about his work (and courtesy communication, timeliness, etc.) was absolutely first-rate. I couldn’t be happier with the job he did and would recommend him enthusiastically to anyone looking for reasonably-priced, skillful electrical services!

Very reasonable price. Had called out another electrician that didn't have the correct swith for the circuit breaker and said the whole box needed to be replaced. He gave an estimate of 600 to 1,200 dollars. Went on the site and answered some questions,and John responded. He came and he actually had an old swith to replace the broke ones and saved me awhole lot of money. I am thankful that he responded . John is an awesome person his is honest and cares about people. He doesn't gaucho people like someone else would. I am going to use his services again. I even have his number on my phone now. I highly recommend him to my friends and family. Anyone need an honest and very reasonable electrician call John.

I hired Justin to replace an old chandelier with a new LED chandelier, and to replace a flush-mount light with a ceiling fan. He reached out to me within minutes of my requesting a bid, and supplied the lowest quote of all bids I received. I’m not the type of person to always go with the lowest price, but he also had fabulous reviews, and was available to do the work very soon (36 hours after I first contacted him). He arrived promptly (and had the courtesy to text me his ETA when he was on his way). He ran into a couple tiny setbacks due to our old electrical boxes and thicker than normal drywall - but stuck to his initial labor estimate, even though it took him extra time and head to run to Home Depot to pick up some longer screws. He only charged $10 in labor to install the ceiling fan brace (which I had purchased myself and we had agreed upon price ahead of time, if he found it was needed) - something that other electricians had said could cost $90 extra to do if it was needed. He also put in extra time to properly balance the fan blades so they wouldn’t wobble on high speed, also without charging extra. We will definitely hire him again for future electrical projects!
