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?

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.

Great job troubleshooting and resolving my electrical problem in my large project. Will be my go-to from this point forward for all major electrical work. I've worked with 3 other electrician companies. CPF Electrical and More is the best. They are honest, professional and do good work.

Willie of WYR Services LLC is fantastic, in fact, the best electrician that I've ever hired. He installed two large pendants lights over my island and a large pendant in the dining area. The holes had to be cut for the island pendants. First of all, he was on time and responsive. His quote was good, right in the middle but the service was impeccable. He explained exactly what had to be done, every step of the way. He took his time and was very detailed, using lasers to ensure that everything lined up and that I was comfortable with where the holes would be cut, and where the pendants would hang. I had a weird beam situation and some existing can lights that were off-centered in my ceiling, but Willie took his time and figured out what to do to ensure a professional look. You can tell he's extremely knowledgeable in his trade by the way he talks and how he explains things. I have found my electrician and will not be looking any further! If you hire him, you won't be disappointed.

Existing reviews must be fake/family. Fortunately for you Evan thumbtack doesn't fight fake reviews as hard as larger companies. Just add a few more. Do not hire. Does sloppy work and will not return unless he thinks he wont get paid. Likes to quote as "i'll help you out", "i'll take care of you", "you found the right person", "i'm only going to charge you X per circuit and take care of everything in between". Which in the end (before paying someone else to fix his work) translated to an average of over $110 an hour plus me buying all materials and him keeping the extra. Yes that's over $40 and hour higher than highly rated independent people doing electrical work. He also kept $69 (3x$23) in dimmer switches I paid him for and left 3 used regular switches in their place. What did I do? Let it go. I'm busy. The work I asked for is done. I have a lot more that needs to get done. Move on. Give one man a rope and he'll build a house. Give another man a rope and he'll hang himself. The first problem I found with his work I contacted him Sunday and he didn't respond until Monday. He came back to resolve. I wondered why. Does he stand behind his work or is he just trying to make more cash? Then he said PayPal hadn't released my last payment to him yet. (The real reason he came to fix his work) So, I still gave him the benefit of doubt and contacted PayPal on the spot to manually release it in good faith. PayPal releases on a schedule unless the customer gets involved. Note he only took PayPal because when I tried to make the last payment to him via zelle he was having a problem with his bank. A week later I found another problem he caused that halted work on insulation install and delayed drywall install. Contacted Sunday Feb 13th with a photo of the problem. He replied Monday Feb 14th saying grandmother passed and he would fix by Thursday Feb 17th. Friday Feb 18th still no communication Friday Feb 18th, paid another electrician to fix his work so we could continue working. Thursday Feb 24th, still no contact from him (but he's still active and communicating with others on thumbtack). Emergencies happen to EVERYBODY. It's part of life and also a common excuse used by low lifes. Everything from fake obituaries to fake doctor notes are just as normal as real ones. I'm easy. Instead of trying to figure out if you're lying, I'll judge by what you do. People say anything but honest people's actions match their words. Besides that, if I have a emergency nobody's going to say it's okay, I don't have to pay for work they did. Especially if they see me still doing business with others. Each day I was on thumbtack, he was active (online, online 3 hours ago, online 23min ago, online, etc, instead of "offline" or last active 1 week ago like other profiles of people not active on the platform. In other words, he didn't fix his work because of a personal problem but he's still active on Thumbtack communicating with people for new business. I reached out to him through paypal. He didn't reply but was still active on Thumbtack. Almost 2 weeks and no word from him, but still active on thumbtack. He could have refunded my cost to hire someone to fix his work but didn't. He could have offered to send someone out to fix the work but didn't. Even though he knew it was holding up insulation and drywall scheduling. He could have reached out and said I can't make it until "xx/xx/xx" date but didn't. Yet he was still active on thumbtack. There was a lot of sloppy work from him that I just accepted because it was easy to fix (temporary electrical wire staples left on surface where drywall goes, some recessed lighting not mounted flush with stud, 1 electrical box mounted incorrect depth, 1 damaged recessed light during installation). They are all easy fixes and not important when you're trying to work with people as they are. Give slack, pay a premium, and people still want to play games. This is the thanks you get. I paid him. Then I had to pay someone else to fix his work while he used a death in the family as a excuse to not fix his work but was still doing business with others. That is sad.
