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.

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.

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.

Contact the best electricians near you today to start receiving free estimates for your project.

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.

So happy with this service!! The young man was very concerned with my mother not having service because of her AC not working and he drove all the way to Sanford to get the needed part. So happy with the price. I will always call him for my electrician needs in the future. It's so good to know I have an electrician I can call and they'll come right away and doesn't cost a fortune. I called on Sunday and he came right away and didn't charge extra for Sunday's.

I needed to have some electrical outlets reinspect by a licensed electrician for the sale of my house. Armando was prompt and available to address my issue in less than 24 hours. He provided a thorough write up for me to present to my buyers. I would definitely use him again.

Out of all the electricians I contacted, Same Day Electric Services responded and scheduled quickly. They are by far the best back-and-forth communication, I've had with any professional services via Thumbtack and phone. Performed job within the allotted time. Explained issues and cost well... Would call them again in a heartbeat.

My experience with Alfa Electric was good for the consultation. The associate was polite and professional. We agreed on a day for him to come back and do the job. However I was promised an email about my electric setup which I never received. When I messaged back several times I never heard anything back leaving me still in need of electrician. Two star service.

I have a problem with my garage door opener in which it just goes up for no reason. I had a garage door opener company come out 3 times and they never solved the problem. Each time, a few days later, the garage door would open on its own. I figured I'd try an electrician to see if there was an electrical short of some kind. AM-X Services was nice but they didn't find anything wrong.

I cannot say enough positive things about this great company and wonderful owner! I was scammed by some ac people who told me I needed an electrician to fix an issue in my house. The owner of the company came out, inspected the issue and even helped with the ac issue! He was polite, honest, prompt and sincere. I am recommending this Eletrician and company to everyone! He went above and beyond to make sure my family who had been without ac in Florida for two full days was taken cared of. Thank you so much! May God continue to bless this company! Please use them. They are GREAT peope.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! EXPERT ELECTRICIAN! Junior saved my house from fire hazards! I had 19 lighting fixtures in my house replaced with new lights and ceiling fans in July 2020 by another company due to availability and the urgency in getting them up asap. In short and in the most friendly terms, they messed the job up and left me with half working lights/fans that were incorrectly installed. I messaged Junior and he was able to come out the next day, assess the damage and provide the services right there and then to fix everything. I now feel safe in my house knowing the lights are up to code and are no longer a fire hazard. Junior was also able to fix my light switches and provide guidance on what each light switch turned on (there are so many that connect to light sockets, we couldn't find them all). I can't express my gratitude enough to Junior and his team. Highly recommended for any electrical job!
