Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Great experience! Nick responded to my request almost instantly and his electrician Max came out the same day. He quickly diagnosed the issue and got us back up and running quickly. We will definitely look to Aria for other projects as needed.

Ertan is a skilled electrician. I was so lucky to have got him to help out do my house. Extremely talented and does a thorough job. Very reasonably priced. I would hire him in a jiffy again for any electrical related service.

Dave came out on a weekend without an upcharge to diagnose a loss of power along an entire wall that I couldn't figure out. Figured it out right away, fixed it quickly, and charged a very reasonable price. Will hire him again next time I need an electrician.

I had an excellent experience with Larvell and Reggie at Power Up. Larvell provided a very quick and competitive quote, was able to schedule the work quickly, was informative and professional, and they did an excellent job with installing can lights and a ceiling fan hookup. I am happy to say that I found my new electrician!

Christian came out and was friendly and courteous and most of all professional. I had originally called an big brand electrician who quoted me a $1,000 even before he came to my home to investigate. Christian was on time and my bill was a tenth of what the big name guy's (who I found on trust Dale) quote.

Julian responded within 10 minutes after requesting quotes from several electricians the evening prior. He was able to arrive the next afternoon and resolved a ceiling fan installation issue I was having in 15 minutes! He was extremely professional and my son also enjoyed watching him work. I highly recommended his services and will be a repeat customer the next time I need electrical assistance. Thank you Julian!

I am very pleased by the service I received. Not only was the job done exactly how I wanted, but I trust what the electrician advises me. He wouldn’t recommend work that would just cost more but instead recommended what I needed. It was refreshing to have a contractor looking out for what was best for my home. We will definitely be using aria electrical again for future projects. He is very knowledgeable.

Abe not only did exceptional work at a fair price, he was very kind and professional. He made great suggestions and is obviously very knowledgeable about his craft. We are extremely pleased with how well he hung our light fixtures, especially the one in our foyer which has a 20 foot high ceiling. We will definitely use a2z again and highly recommend a2z to anyone in search of a highly skilled and professional electrician.

Highly unskilled and negligent electrical contractor who not only damaged our property but also did poor installation job. Passing cars or the neighbor’s dog constantly triggers the motion sensing light that he installed above the garage door. Any skilled electrician would test the detection zone after the installation and fine tune the setting to save the energy. He didn't plan the wiring route carefully for tapping into existing electrical wire, and ended up drilling holes through toilet drywall. See the enclosed picture. He damaged the weatherproof covers for the bulb during installation and told us that the covers were already damaged and he didn't notice the damage until he was ready to put them on. See the enclosed picture. He told me that he would take care of it and didn't show up for repair work on the day he promised.

Honestly, I think Lex and his partner are both amazing! If I could I would have chosen all 5 great attributes of working with Lex, I would have given him all 5 stars! From the beginning to the end, both worked hard, with efficiency and the installations of 6 fans and 6 light fixtures were top notch! Communication was good, informed me of his every step, protected my newly sealed floor at every turn, and protected my walls from his ladders of 3 footers to his 20 footers in my house. I have never worked with an electrician who is so thoughtful and courteous as Lex. Did I mention his price is fair too!!! He really is a perfect package. I wouldn’t hesitate to hire him for more projects in my house and recommend him to all of my friends.

Do not trust Dexter Chambers. We agreed on a price for a job. Then as per his request added more money to the already agreed price. Then again he wanted more money for the same work. Dexter left the job half finished even after I paid for the material and more money in the middle of the work. Never will hire him again and you should not do that. Also, he mentioned that another customer is waiting to sue him and now I understand whose fault it is. Planning to file a formal complaint against his electrician license and report to the university he works for. Dexter should not take my kindness and nice behavior as weakness. Well, what you can expect from a blue-collar guy like him. ================================================== Just saw the reply from Dexter. Again I did not misrepresent anything and everything is 100% truth and I don't have any reason He is a liar and he knows what he did. Glad I have left the truthful review. He left my job unfinished because he got a big job. Good luck to him. Remember what goes around will come back 1 day.
