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. 

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.

Amazing quality and attention to detail. Friendly and great value. They installed brand new recessed lights, 2 ceiling fans at 18ft ceilings and a chandelier. Wiring was tricky due to errors when the Josie was built but they found a way. I am so pleased with the work. It looks fantastic. If you are looking for a company to do lighting for you, I highly recommend ipower. I will definitely be using them again.

Victor and his team are excellent, their work is top notch. They listen to your concerns and provide solutions that they then execute at a high level. They installed recessed lighting throughout my home, patched and painted the whole place while also installing 6 new light fixtures. They’re work looks flawless and they really upgraded the value of my new home. I will be working with them on future projects and feel confident recommending them and believe that if you have a project they can handle you will be recommending them to your friends as well. 10 stars ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

We were originally quoted $80 and he charged $140 for a light installation. This was ok with us because we had some issues with the wiring. However light was installed completely crooked and not flush with wall. Called him to come back and he said it was due to age of the plate but agreed to come back and fix and see if it could be straightened. It’s much better now but still not completely straight. However, then after the RE-installation we lost power in other parts of our house (Thermostat and 2 other outlets). He claimed this had nothing to do with the work he did in the other room but said he would come back to take a look to try to fix—if he couldn’t fix it, would refund the $140. I thought this was admirable but he didn’t show up at the agreed upon day, and after multiple texts never responded to me again. I ended up getting another electrician, who in fact confirmed the light was wired incorrectly which impacted the other areas and the new electrician made the repair.

My husband and I decided to install can lights in our son’s playroom. Phillips Electrical was very responsive, professional and personable. They took the time to explain in detail what they would do, how, and reasons for the best approach. The final product looks great and they finished 2 hrs ahead of schedule! Highly recommend!

David is professional and straightforward. He is knowledgeable and explained everything without hesitation. He rewired for our kitchen vent hood. He also put in 6 wafer lights with dimmers and changed out a few old wall devices. He was on time and a person of his word. If you need an electrician He’s your guy.

Sterling did a great job and was efficient and kind. He was able to help me immediately with my electrical work that I wasn’t confident in my own skills to handle. He spent time troubleshooting a light fixture that I loved but needed a little extra help and I appreciate that he was able to work with me instead of saying it couldn’t be done. I will definitely reach out in the future on projects.
