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.

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.

Another electrician cancelled on me at the last moment. Harbor electric responded quickly and changed out the electrical panel in a few hours. Great job!

If you are looking for a great electrician…look no further. Kris is your guy. I had a had a assortment of issues and Kris was able to seamlessly complete all of them with expertise, and professionalism in a timely manner. I had three ceiling fans needing different levels of attention…one needed to be replaced…another rewired and the last one wobbled. I had a broken bracket on my fluorescent lighting in my kitchen…fixed my doorbell button…and tirelessly troubleshot my outside lamps. He explained everything that he was doing and why. He was truthful, affordable with a easygoing personality. I am having him come back and move my ceiling lamp over the dining table and replace the outside lamps as soon as I purchase them. Like I said…Kris is your guy.

DO NOT BOOK WITH HIM!!!! You will be wasting your time for his lack of communication and professionalism. Great amount of red flags presented at the beginning however, because of the quote he gave me for my flood light installation we decided to go with him. 1st red flag, he provided an incorrect number to send my address to. Which means my address was given to a random stranger. 2. He had “car issues” however, he should have NEVER confirmed an appointment with us if he was unable to complete the job. 3. His communication skills are very poor to be considered a “top pro” on thumbtack. I had to call him and text him each time to see if he was going to make it to his scheduled appointment. TO THE PROSPECT CUSTOMERS, do NOT waste your time. I took off work for him to complete the job and stayed around thinking he would eventually show up, from the i ritual appointment time at 10am... to it being canceled at 3pm. There are way too many qualified electricians out there that ARE timely and professional. I also noticed how he talked to people who rated his services and made statements such as “I never did your work” etc. so I provided proof via text message to show you that I was in communication with this exact provider from Thumbtack. 0/10 starts for Electro Joe.
