How much does a licensed electrician cost per hour?

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.

Beware of this company. Using scare tactics they are trying to sale you something you do not need. They were trying to change my panel for 4.5K which if I really needed should cost around 2K. I was quoted that price from other electrician from Thumbtack and the same electrician fix the problem for $ 250.00. No wonder they have very low . This company has less that 2 stars on Florida BBB website.

Best electrician I ever used. Not only did they do an excellent job but they cleaned up every drop of the mess. If all of this was not enough, they were the cheapest quote I received.

Condescending electrician; got the job done but would never have him back; shows up at our door with no mask & NOT vaccinated; talks to my husband (85 years old) in a very condescending tone…not sure he would know what that means!

Kirk at A Plus Security & Electrical is a professional electrician and businessman with good communication skills, was responsive, punctual, and did quality work for a good value. His team installed 4 GFI outlets and a new circuit in our panel. We would definitely use him again.

Don answered the call promptly and got the job done efficiently. We had been trying to get an electrician for most of the afternoon…finally my husband told me to try Thumbtack. Don was here within an hour! He tested all the batteries and changed them and tightened up the wires. We were not able to get up on a ladder to do this ourselves. Great service in a short time!

I searched on thumbtack and Scott the owner reached out in 15 minutes. Set up time to come over for quote convenient to me Quote was reasonable so gave Charter the job. Sent 2 guys who were very professional and nice. Ended up giving them several other jobs (just moved into home) Excellent work and repaired sloppy work from builder no charge. These guys are my electricians going forward.

Did the job we needed, but misrepresented himself as a "licensed electrician". Refused to give me his license number for our records and said the simple job did not require it because there were no permits pulled (we are selling our home and it is necessary). The job was so simple, my husband could have done it, but we need someone who was LICENSED to pass home inspection. Upon further investigation, I found that he is NOT licensed, and is only eligible to take the exam,and has not yet. He WAS licensed in Kentucky, but not since 2005.

Valdo Stcyr installed lighting fixtures under my kitchen cabinets. This was my first time having him do work for me and it definitely won't be the last. He was very polite and friendly. He is very skilled and did a fantastic job of installing my under the cabinet lights. He couldn't have done it better. His work is perfect! His fee was quite reasonable. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for an excellent electrician. I have included a picture of my kitchen cabinets with the lights he installed under the cabinets.

Stop looking for other electricians, it won’t get better than Tinker Electric! From the start of our project to the finish I couldn’t be happier with the customer service and professionalism we received. Tinker Electric hooked up electricity to our back patio and installed outlets for our TV and Beer Fridge, and electricity for the fan. He installed the fan and mounted the Tv for us as well! The communication was amazing- he would text to confirm appointments and let us know when he was on his way/when he arrived. Most of all, he was very honest and fair about the cost of our job. Integrity and manners are clearly at the forefront of this business, and it’s evident throughout the duration of the job. So glad that we went with Tinker Electric for our patio project! 10/10 would recommend. We will also be contacting him first regarding any other future projects that we have.
