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.

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.

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.

Does an electrician need to enter my home?

Whether an electrician needs to enter your home depends on the type of work that needs to be completed. Any work on receptacles, lights and more located on the inside or outside of your house will likely require an electrician to enter your home.

Ask electricians in your area to perform a video consultation instead of a traditional walk-through to assess the project. During the consultation, they should be able to tell you if they’ll need to enter your home or not.

Fred responded quickly with a fair estimate. I have been in the remodeling business 10 years and was looking for a new electrician to service my rental properties and remodeling jobs. Fred is the best electrician I have encountered. He is extremely knowledgeable and his standards for his work quality are extremely high. He replaced a total of 16 switches, outlets, and GFCI’s. He installed 2 new electrical boxes, one through a block wall. He replaced 2 breakers in the main box when he noticed that one breaker was not in code compliance. He carefully checked his work before he left to make sure everything worked and guaranteed all the work he performed. He accomplished all this high quality work in just over 3 hours. In summary, Fred is the best electrician and problem solver when it comes to electrical issues, that I have worked with. Fred will be my regular electrician from now on.

The fluorescent light went out in my kitchen a week before Christmas. I called my regular electrician and they said they couldn't come out until mid January. I contacted Thumbtack and Mr Lewis left me a message 15 minutes later. 24 hours later Mr. Lewis had replaced the ballast in my fixture and my kitchen was bright again His price was very reasonable and I could not be more pleased. I think I have a new regular electrician.

Now waiting for electrician to come back. Apparently problem not totally fixed. He wanted AC man to be there who has come and said ac system OK and has had it manually running. Will change stars if we can get this corrected.

Electrician Erik S. arrived on time & diagnosed and repaired a tricky problem with the breaker box. He also repaired an outdoor electrical outlet that had stopped working. We were very satisfied with the quality of his work and would hire him again.

Very professional and knowledgeable. We had a mess of a wiring project and Everyday Electric came out and got it sorted out the very same day they came to look at it. The electrician was great around our very misbehaving and spoiled dogs. I will use them again.

Don came very quickly to help us with a very difficult electric tangle clearly made by amateurs in order to enable us to hook up a new dishwasher. He exhibited extraordinary patience and skill and his fee was very reasonable. He is now and forever our only electrician

What a great experience. The electrician that came out was punctual and worked his butt off the entire time. He also continually communicated with me about any changes in the plan and to give me status updates. I have already recommended Verga Electric to friends and family and will continue to do so.

Talk about a great company. The installers were just amazing! Very professional! They came out the same day on time and the price that was quoted was the price it was. It was also a lot cheaper than other electricians. They came out with two people instead of just one. I will make sure to only use this company in the future.

Someone needed to come to give an estimate first, then sent a different guy two days later, unclear if he was actually a master electrician or not, to install a light fixture and a fan. He installed the fixture, then half installed the fan, and left the wiring box hanging out of my ceiling. He was unable to complete the job, said someone would be back, but nobody from Weldon bothered to contact me and was unresponsive when I reached out. They charged me $170 to install a single fixture on a pre-wired socket. Meanwhile I paid another electrician who showed up immediately, finished assembling/installing my fan, built two others, and moved two others, for $280 when these guys didn’t come back to finish their work. In short, these guys are not that good, but they’re expensive.

Ryan was a reliable, hassle-free electrician to work with. I bought a new house which needed an electrical line reworked to support my new dryer. He offered a free site visit to check it all out and then came back a few days later to get the job done. His turnaround time & quality of work was impressive. Thank you!
