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.

Do not hesitate, this company is honorable. Jose arrived on time as scheduled. He came and fixed the connection to my deck awning, replaced a broken outlet and did several other repairs for a fair price. He is smart, very skilled and a true professional. Another electrician from Thumbtak worked here prior, charged me for 4 hours and couldn’t even fix what Jose fixed in 30 minutes!!! He is the only electrician I will hire from now on because he knows what he’s doing, plus he’s very polite and sweet.

Donny is fantastic! I had a minor GFI electrical emergency at my salon late Sunday evening and needed an electrician within 12 hours. After having reached out to 7+ electricians w no luck, Donny came through, responded to my inquiry and made himself available before 9am the following day. He not only showed up prepared to replace the GFI but he went above and beyond and discovered that it was a breaker issue and took it upon himself to replace it. My client and I are very satisfied with his service and would absolutely recommend him to anyone!

I wholeheartedly recommend Larry. His quality, fair price, professionalism, and knowledge are a rare combination. After hearing about his past experiences and accomplishments and observing his skill, I can't imagine that there is a better electrician in all the front range.

The Electricians were very responsive and came out immediately to help diagnose a grounding issue we had. They were very knowledgeable about the potential causes and backed it up with great work that resolved our issue. I would recommend them to anyone.

We had Tyler look at a problem and he told us it would be expensive, and extensive, and that he could come back in a week to do it. A second opinion with another electrician revealed there were multiple cheap and simple solutions. We paid the second guy way less for much better advice, and the problem was solved within the day.

Larry was responsive to calls and messages, prompt when showing up to work, and professional. We had a difficult electrical problem to troubleshoot, and he was very persistent and followed through until the job was completed. He also cleaned up thoroughly after his work. I am happy to have found a reliable, professional electrician.

We highly recommend him, and plan on calling in the future if anything comes up. Super nice guy, saved us money by telling us the recommended work wasn’t necessary, and that we could solve our problem cheaply! So we did! Thank you for not taking advantage like the last electrician apparently wanted to, and like many would.

Our projects were all completed in a timely manner. We even added an extra task and Shane was able to stay late to complete his work. Fair pricing all the way through. My neighbor even hired him to install 4 ceiling fans. We plan to have more electrical work in the future and we will definitely call THE ELECTRICIAN/ Shane and his brother Andrew Thank you!

Larry was pleasure to work with. He responded quickly with a quote and came in person to take some measurements. He showed up on time and did an excellent job running the cable from the panel to my garage, installing the outlet and mounting the car charger. He had receipts for all the materials and charged me what he quoted. He also cleaned any debris from drilling, etc. When I need an electrician again he is the one I will call. Thanks for the great work!

I highly recommend Bulletproof if you need an electrician. They kept in contact with me and told me the cost up front. Andrew was professional and friendly. I asked him to look at a couple of other things since there was still time on my hour. He gladly agreed. He told me all he wants is for me to be 100% satisfied. I am! Great work, efficient, timely, fair price and no pressure to do more than I asked for. You can trust they are worthy of a 5 star rating.
