Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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 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.

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.

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

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.

John went above and beyond to remediate an issue with our electrical panel. He even consulted with a Master electrician to find the most practical and efficient means to solve the problem without needing to spend hundreds of dollars more on a new electrical box. Will definitely be hiring him again. If you’re in Southern Florida, he’s your electrician!!

The best electrician I have had in a long time! He is my new electrician from now on. Fast, efficient, clean. My last electrician was good but you have to know when to retire when you get older and you start getting type two diabetes and high blood pressure time to quit instead of taking it out on your customers. Ben was very patient and understanding and did not rush me when I had to decide if the fixture was in the right spot perfectly leveled. So happy I found him because I am a interior designer and I will be using his expertise in electrical and fixture installation again.

He was very communicative from the outset, came out on a Saturday morning within 1 hour of our initial contact. He diagnosed the problem quickly and just as quickly fixed it. I would not hesitate to call again when I am in need of an electrician.

Earlando is a gem. While tackling the installation of 4 ceiling fans he made sure that the 3 control switches throughout the house were reconnected and working properly. Positive, pleasant, professional. He will be my first and only choice next time we need an electrician.

He said he’d come to my house tomorrow to fix my doorbell at 1:00. I followed up to confirm by 12:45 and he said he was sorry and he’d come by 1:30. He didn’t come so I called him and he said that in this business with electrical “you can’t schedule an exact time”. He said maybe he can come around 3-4:00. I’m sorry but can’t sit around and wait all day for him to show up when it’s convenient for him. This is not normal business scheduling. I’ve scheduled many electricians in my lifetime that could keep an a actually appointment time. I found another electrician that could.

Jorge was simply amazing. We hired him to install 6 fans and 2 light fixtures. He was so fantastic, we actually hired him to come back and configure a special setup for our wired ring video doorbell, as well as a light in our closet. He was courteous, punctual, professional, and above all did a fantastic job. He did a nice job of explaining things when I inquired. I felt totally comfortable with him which I also think is important. I’ve already given his contact information to several family and friends. If you need an honest, hardworking electrician who knows his stuff, you will not regret hiring Jorge. I am happy to have found an electrician that I will continue to use!

Carlos is a very competent electrician with honesty and integrity. Started and finished the job very efficiently as promised. He and his crew dis and excellent job getting my house ready for a generator via installing 50amp breaker in the panel as well as an outlet for the generator. Also installed 12g, 20 amp dedicated electrical lines with their own disconnects, for treadmill and portable AC in the garage. 5 stars.

Earlando was very professional. He corresponded with me quickly and made sure to answer all my questions. I had many tasks to do and he was able to finish them in 2 days. I had to replace my outdoor fan,bathroom fans, smoke detectors, thermostat to nest and ceiling light. I had to also change all the switches and outlets in my apartment. Overall a great experience and was very pleased to of found an honest electrician. Would highly recommend.

Our electrician did a very good job. He was polite and did all the things on our list. We had new lighting installed, some fixtures moved, and some switches repaired. The work was professionally done, and we haven't needed anyone to return to fix anything. It was worth paying a bit more than the lowest bid to work with a multi-person company. The main office was pleasant to work with. The job took much longer than we expected. We were told everything would be done in one day. It took three, and on the third day, there were two individuals; otherwise, it would have taken another day. Cleaning up was not their best thing, nor was showing up on time.
