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.

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.

Do electricians offer remote or virtual services?

While electrical work is typically performed in person, you may come across some electrician profiles that state the pro is offering remote services. If you do, contact local electricians to discuss your particular project and what type of remote services they may offer.

The electrician was incredibly good: knowledgeable, efficient and professional. FPC website is awful. Asking all kind of questions not related to the work, pushy and unprofessional. I hate that website. Even when I paid for the job on site, FPC was asking me for "due payment". Unprofessional!

Allan and his team were amazing. They are extremely detail oriented and professional. They installed two outdoor fans and an indoor light which was not the easiest but Allan honored the original quote. I plan to definitely work with them again. Rare in Miami do you find such an amazing electrician.

Alex of Electric US re-did all the electrical boxes for a 12 unit apartment rental building for a 40-year re-certification. It was a very large job and he gave us a very good and fair price. He worked quickly and did a great job. All of the tenants raved about how very happy they were with him. We had hired another electrician a month before and he was was taking much longer and the engineer inspector was not passing his work. Alex came in and re-did everything. He was there the day of re-inspection and opened all the boxes for the engineer and engineer couldn't have been happier with his work. Everything was perfect and done as it should be and up to code. I would highly recommend Alex for any electrical job small or large. He is professional and provides quality work at a good price. He was always very communicative and responsive throughout the work process and afterwards for inspection. Thank goodness for thumbtack for helping us find him. He will be our go-to electrician for our business and personal homes from now on.

I have nothing but good things to say about Angel and his partner which happens to be his Dad. He arrived early and went right to work. He replaced my bathroom light fixture with a new one that I had purchased. He installed it effortlessly and removed all the debris and left the area clean. I am very happy with the way he provided his services and I will definitely hire him again for future projects. It is not easy to find a good electrician, I am very glad to have found Angel. I highly recommend him, he is very professional, polite and a very good worker. Thank you Angel !!!
