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.

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.

As a former General Contractor I know a good electrician when I see one. Scott and his crew are the best!! Great job! Great Price! Thanks for your hard work!!

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.

Jeremy hit it out of the park. His prices are fair and competitive, he's easy to work with, professional at all time. His work was through and clean. He's my new electrician. I've already recommended him to neighbors.

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.

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.
Rana B.
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.

Outstanding job! Nick did a great job fixing my electrical outlet and actually spent the time going over what I did wrong when I gave it the college try first. He was punctual and very courteous, and had all the tools/supplies available to get the job done professionally. He is now the only electrician on my contacts list on my phone. Thanks again for the good work!

Ángel Electric is great electrician! We had gotten new recessed light fixtures installed that have been giving us issues for months, which he fixed in minutes! Most importantly he ran all new electric from our panel to our brand new oven! He does great work, fast, diligent work for a great value! We will definitely be using his skills in the future, and recommending him to our friends!

If you want a company to try and rip you off you've found them. The technician told me they would need to run new wire and a circuit breaker to my oven hood vent in order to get it working again. They wanted $500 to get this done. I had another electrician come out to take a look at it and all he had to do to solve the issue was to reset a tripped gfci outlet. This is a very shady way to run a business. 100% do not recommend.

Luis did a great job installing a 220 outlet in my garage. He contacted me immediately and came over the next morning to bid on the work. He and his partner were extremely professional. They were able to get to work immediately and finished the job promptly. I had seen five electricians before Luis. They all were at least double the price and didn’t seem interested in such a small job. Luis will be my go to guy for my electrical projects.

John was amazing..Though for our problem it took a little more time to be completed I couldn't of asked for someone for precise and thorough than him. We needed a whole new electrical box, he not only knew what was wrong but had the experience and history behind the old electrical box and why it wasn't up to code. John went above and beyond for us by coming on a Saturday to give us a "FREE" quote. He understood our urgency and guaranteed that it would be completed on Monday either by one of his employees or himself. I couldn't of asked for a better Electrician and will use him for all future repairs!!!

I was just planning on lining up an electrician for my to do list next week. It being Sunday, I didn't think anyone would respond until tomorrow. Ethical Electrical Services contacted me immediately but told me that he was unavailable for the next two weeks. After I described by problem with a GFCI outlet, he agreed to talk me through it. I had replaced these myself more than once and never had a problem but this one was giving me fits. After some back and for a while the with a description of the issue, I had everything I needed to do the job on my own and get it working. Free...On a Sunday...And it works. Can't be more ethical than that. They will be on my call list for the next electrical project, for sure.

I cannot say enough good things about Yordan! I needed an outlet installed for a wall mounted TV, and after two quite unreasonable estimates from some other, less than honest electricians, Yordan was able to get the job done quickly, professionally, and for literally hundreds of dollars less than the “other guys.” More than that, he was quick to respond to my request, was on time and even a little bit early, even though he had to travel here from out of the area. And if that weren’t enough, he was simply a pleasure to work with; polite, friendly, personable. I would be happy to recommend Yordan to all my friends and neighbors, and will definitely be reaching out to him for any future projects. Thank you so much!!
