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.

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.

Do light fixtures need to be grounded?

Grounding your light fixtures is important to protecting your household from dangerous shocks. If you’re unsure if your light fixture can be grounded, or if you don’t know how to ground it yourself, contact a lighting electrician near you

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. 

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.

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.

Sam was responsive, punctual, professional, very fair in price, and a pleasure to work with. He did a great job installing 6 surface mount LED lights in place of the very old track lighting in my kitchen. He also replaced the old fixtures in my bathrooms to surface mount LEDs.

My experience with Classic City Tile and Electrical was extraordinary! Pete was responsive in providing a quote, following up to schedule an appointment and confirming my address. Pete arrived early for our appointment. He installed 6 lighting fixtures and two ceiling fans. My home looks so much nicer with the updated lighting and ceiling fans. I will use Pete for additional projects in the future.

I was completely pleased with the service I received from BBLB Electrical Services. He was professional and personable. He cleaned up when the light installation was complete. The experience was a good one and I’ll recommend to others. I’d use BBLB Electrical Services again.

Lio was amazing! We had a not so great experience with some light fixture replacements and within an hour of contacting Lio, he arrived, fixed the problem PLUS offered to install new dimmer switches since we were still within our first billable hour. He was knowledgeable and professional and we’ll definitely use him again and recommend to everyone we know!

We had a temperamental kitchen light that would only work some of the time. Gary was able to diagnose the problem right away and fix it in no time. He even took care of our unsightly TV wires hanging from the wall that the TV mounting guy left unaddressed. He was on time, friendly, and reasonable in price. Would definitely hire him again for future electrical issues.

Alex(The older gentleman) is very good and professional. They did the job of installing the about 18 recessed lights. I was content with their work and even gave them a free reference of my neighbor which was around 1000$ of work. Instead of completing the work over the weekend as agreed. Theese guys dragged it to 3-4 weekends and would often pick other jobs in the morning and then come to my neighbor's home. This is highly unaccepatable. I felt bad as I gave reference to my neighbor. I had to install 20 more recessed lights and some other stuff. Their estimate was 35% higher than the other local electrician who was equally good. I was anyway not going to go with them over how they did my neighbor. The new electrician came by himself. Did the work quickly over the weekend. So always shop around and get couple of estimates, chances are you can find a better option who is equally or more professional too.
