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?

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.

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.

First time customer; I scheduled an appointment for an electrician to come out today between 3-5. They hadn’t showed up by 5 so I called the company. It sounds like this is a larger organization with a call center that might outsource electricians. After 20 minutes of calls and messages placed, I received a text that they needed to reschedule my appointment. Keep in mind this company charges a service fee to come out.

Problem was not fixed, had to hire a different electrician. Wired one breaker backwards and installed a GFI ark breaker that went to a GFI outlet so that also continued to trip.

The electrician, Mark, showed up first thing in the morning, completing the project in about 2 hours. Made sure everything was up to code, even left the drywall cutouts for an easy patch up. Highly recommend!

Dave was absolutely fantastic to work with. After another electrician was not able to solve a power outage to a room in my house, Dave implemented a great solution quickly and effectively. I appreciate his great customer service and attention to detail, and I will certainly reach out for any future electrical work.

Larry is an outstanding professional electrician. He was on time, installed 3 new light fixtures, and then quickly offered to fix a light switch that had been installed upside down. He also agreed to another unexpected project and completed that with expertise. I highly recommend Larry and will definitely use him again in the future!

Well I've found my go-to electrician. Larry and team came out to install a 240v 50amp circuit in my garage for EV charging and I couldn't be happier. He answered all my questions promptly and showed up right on time to start the work. He is extremely knowledgeable and didn't try any shady tactics. He'll be back to install a 110v behind my mounted TV.

My experience was fantastic. Haven’t used thumbtack for a couple years after I reached a point of being overwhelmed by my electrical problem. Larry not only fixed the problem, he went out of his way to make time out of his busy schedule. Will be hiring him again real son on a bigger job I have planned. Just glad I can say I have a go to electrician. Will not disappoint ya!

I had a new stove delivered but it seemed the previous owner had hardwired the stove to the outlet. I needed an electrician ASAP. Using thumbtack I found Tyler. I explained my situation to him and he was at my house within an hour👍 Tyler was very professional, prompt , his work is good and his prices are reasonable.He wasn’t bothered by my 3 year old grandson trying to help using his play set tools. Would I hire Tyler again ABSOLUTELY

Larry is an excellent electrician. His work ethic, knowledge of lighting fixtures and customer service are what we need more of today. He installed 2 light fixtures for a reasonable cost and then went over and beyond to fix an additional light fixture that was installed by someone else free of charge!! You can tell he loves what he does by his work. He also comes prepared to clean up after himself and always with a smile. We are definitely going to hire him for additional projects in our home remodel.

Chris was very prompt and professional at the beginning, very responsive. Went to my rental property, we scheduled work. I had to pester him for a written estimate since I own a property management company and need approvals for work. He claimed he sent one, and I had to ask everyday for one which then resulted in me cancelling the job and starting my search all over again for an electrician. He still hasn’t sent me a written quote which makes me believe he was trying to overcharge me, or just sketchy. Never heard back. Not reliable. Wouldn’t recommend.
