Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much does it cost to install a light fixture?

If you want to have a light fixture installed, the cost will likely be between $90 to $250 per fixture. The actual cost will depend on a number of factors, the first of which is the professional you hire. To find out how much you can expect to spend, contact several lighting installation professionals near you and ask for free estimates.

The type of fixture can also impact costs. For example, traditional ceiling mounts are usually less expensive than recessed lighting. The number of lights that need to be installed is another cost factor.

How do I hire the best electrician in Atlanta?

To ensure you hire the best electrician in Atlanta who is licensed, experienced and skilled, take your search online.

Do you need an electrician to install a light fixture?

Whether you need to hire a lighting installation service or an electrician to install a light fixture depends on the type of fixture, the complexity of your electrical wiring, and most of all, your experience and comfort. Depending on the location of the fixture, you may need to run wiring and install switches. If you don’t have any previous electrical experience, it’s quite possible to make a mistake that could create a hazard. However, if you know what you’re doing, installing a light fixture is fairly trivial.

How do you install a ceiling light fixture?

Some of the steps involved in installing a ceiling or hanging light fixture including removing the old fixture, inspecting your wiring, turning off the power at the breaker box, connecting wires and attaching the fixture. Some of the tools, equipment and materials you might need include a step ladder, screwdrivers, screws, wire strippers, wire connectors, a power drill, pliers or more.

If you don’t have the necessary equipment or don’t feel comfortable installing your ceiling light on your own, contact a lighting professional instead. 

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.

Positive experience and will be a repeat customer. Jacob is courteous, responsive and I’m very pleased with the install of our pendant and recessed lights. He even fixed some issues with lighting that we installed ourselves. His rate beat out the competition, and ensures that we’ll always consider his service for our future electrical needs.

Duane was on time and responsive. He was available to complete the job quickly and did a great job. He cleaned up after himself and was reasonably priced. Other electricians found excuses why I couldn’t have the lighting I wanted... Duane was able to get it done. Hiring him again to install more recessed lighting!

Russ was spectacular to work with and did a superb, professional, and top-notch electrical job on our home. He added some additional recessed lighting, wall sconces, replaced a light in a closet, and moved wiring for a flush mount light. All of it was done perfectly and we are exceptionally happy with the results. He kept me informed on every installation and ensured me that his installations were of the utmost safety standards. I definitely plan on hiring him again in the future.

Jerome was very responsive to my inquiry and came right over to access the work needed to provide a quote. I had recessed lighting and 3 pendant lights installed in my kitchen. I also had an electrical receptacle reinstalled in my island. I really liked that Jerome took his time to ensure the lighting placement was perfect. I am very pleased with the results. To add... I wasn’t the easiest customer to deal with but Jerome was very patient and wanted to ensure I had the best service.

Fred Rodgers and his son have done some astonishing work in our new apartment. This is an apartment built in 1985 which was slightly dark with old wiring and panels, as pointed out by the home inspector. Fred came in on Friday to gauge the entire project which included 18 recess lights, changing of all outlets, installing track lights, bathroom fans with lights, chandeliers just to name a few. He gave us good suggestions and gave us a better price than our handyman. They completed the project within the weekend and provided us with abundant lighting throughout the apartment. They are a pleasure to work with and their price is unbeatable!

Carlos did great work on installing recess lighting in the bedrooms and closets. He came and did the job within the time frame with no delays. I had an issue after installation. I contacted him to add another switch and never heard back after a promised telephone call. via text. Follow through is important even if he was not able to do it. It would have been nice to hear it directly instead of not hearing back at all.

WOW! That's the first thing that comes to mind when a professional takes your vision and turns it into something beyond what you could envision within a 48 hour period. Thanks to All and Hot Socket Electrical Services, my recess lights, my pendants, and by extension, my kitchen, are stunning. They really make my space pop. Before he could completely finish installing my gorgeous lighting, we were already hiring him for other projects. I will definitely use them again in the very near future (a.k.a. as soon as I can get my next appointment).

Duane really knows his stuff! We needed some recessed lights installed in our living room + some other minor work around the house. I got a fair quote from Duane on a Saturday, and the work was scheduled for the following Monday. Duane got in touch with me on Sunday and requested if he could come in to take a look at what needed to be done, so he could get the right parts, measure, etc. Duane's pre-work was extremely thorough. And on Monday morning, Duane showed up earlier than the scheduled time, and got the job done at record speed. I had budgeted the entire day for the job....but he was done around noon. Incredible! And everything worked - and continues to work - perfectly. The bottom-line is that Duane's quote was fair and his work is STELLAR. Additionally, Duane is thorough and professional. Overall Duane is an A+ pro, and therefore I'm rating him 5-STARS!
