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.

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.

Nick was absolutely fantastic. He is one of the hardest working tradesman I have had the pleasure of working with. He provides quality work at a competitive price point, and will be the electrician I use for any job in the future. He completed two days worth of work roughing in can lights, ceiling fans, bathroom vent fans, and ran new wiring for dimmer switches. This is the electrician you are looking for, small or large job.

4 other electricians couldn’t figure out how to fix my small job. Heart heating and cooling stopped by and fixed it within 30 minutes and I couldn’t be happier. They are priced very well and the tech was absolutely amazing.

All I can say is, this guy is f$@&!#* AMAZING! Very personal, hard-working, honest, dependable, straight shooter! Put in a nine hour day, never took a lunch break or anything. He walked us through every step of the way, always explaining what he was going to do and what our options were. Pricing is fair and reasonable. Extremely honest, everyone should hire “LARRY the electrician”! If you don’t hire this guy, you’re an idiot! He put in the electrical for four ceiling fans, was 75% less than the another electricians quote.

Larry was the only electrician brave enough to tackle our vaulted living room ceiling fan addition project. He was responsive in communicating before the project, showed up right on time and did a great job. We’ll be passing his name along to family and friends in the area. Thanks Larry!

Once again we are thrilled with the work Larry did. He came a day after we reached out and added a dedicated circuit w/ 4 outlets in the workshop area of our garage. Incredible value for the quality of work, and scheduling with Jade was quick and easy! Happy to have a dependable electrician to call in the future, Larry is simply the best.

Brian and his assistant worked very hard over a day and a half to get all my tasks done quickly, and they were very professional and pleasant to deal with. Brian also offered some good suggestions I hadn't thought of. Not cheap, but good work never is. I have already recommended Denver Electrician to a neighbor.

If you’re debating between this high rated electrician and another…choose JTG. Honestly they were great all around. Kind, responsive, wore shoe coverings in our house, vacuumed after completing the job and even gave me some patch-work options that turned out sleek. They did exactly what I was looking for and more.

From my first conversation with Tony, I knew I was dealing with a legit guy. Sent a few pics and he gave me a ball park price and stayed true. Mike and Justin arrived on time / got in and out with a job well done. Nice guys, hard workers. You’ll do good to partner with “The Electricians”

I had 2 light fixtures that needed replacing, and the work was both efficient and reasonably priced. They were super responsive over Thumbtack and I appreciated the fact that they were able to give me a free quote over Thumbtack, while other electricians were charging for theirs. I would definitely work with them again if I need other electrical repairs in the future.

Job was the installation of 4 can lights in my kitchen. The job was completed in a timely manner. However, when the owner Jerrett came by to give me a bid he appeared to be in quite a hurry. As a result he neglected to discuss the need for a dimmer switch. Not being an electrician, I had no idea what I needed or what questions to ask. When the electrician arrived to do the job, he pointed out that I needed a dimmer switch and my current configuration would not allow for it unless he changed the switch box. This resulted in an increase of $275 taking my $480 job to $755. When I called Jerrett about it he put the blame on me, credited me $40 for installation and really took no responsibility for his lack of attention to the bid for my job. Work that was done was fine, but I feel a bit baited and switched on the whole thing. Be careful.
