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?

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 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.

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.

Can’t say enough good things about Braxton, this guy was fantastic. I was informed by one of my tenants her ceiling fan had quit so having dismissed my last electrician for unprofessionalism, I turned to Thumbtack and found Braxton. He returned my inquiry immediately, and was able to accommodate both mine and the tenants availability and showed up when he said he would. The job was completed and invoice sent all without incident. And the tenant even commented about his professionalism. Braxton will be at the top of my electrician list now and should be on yours too!

J & J IT & Electrical Service we’re very responsive and we’re always in communication with me. The electrician showed up early and was very professional. Some outlets were replaced and adjusted. He was honest and did a great job. I will use them again.

Really great team! I had questions. Carlos and Javier has answers. They came on time and worked hard. When I asked for a couple extras to an already good size job, and they were happy to help. I found my new electricians! I was very pleased.

Elcio came and did what the first bozo should have done, give me a functioning outlet. The first guy I got from Thumbtack who claimed to be an electrician wired the outlet incorrectly so after he ignored my calls, I contacted Elcio and in 30 min and no drywall damage, he had everything working perfectly. Reasonable rates for the trade. I will definitely call him again.

Jaime is professional, prompt, and knowledgeable. He installed a ceiling fan and closet light fixture to existing wiring. His price was excellent. If your electrical job is simple (as in, you could possibly do it yourself but don't want to electrocute yourself, fall off the ladder, or blow a fuse) and you don't want to spend a ridiculous amount on licensed electricians (there is no reason you should pay 2-3 hours labor or $100+ for a ceiling fan install if the wiring is there) , Jaime is perfect. He guarantees his work for 90 days. He does handyman work and I am making a list of tasks I will hire him for next.

I needed a job that was too small for any electrician that I had contacted. John called me right away, I told him what I needed, he said he would be in the area and came by fixed the issue in a few minutes AND told me not to pay him till we make sure it stays fixed over night!!! So, the next morning I called and let him know all was good asked him how much and he said $75 and I left it under the mat so he could get it when I was at work.He called, thanked me and now he will even be able to help me with some "handyman" things! Great guy and I would definitely use him again and refer him to friends!
