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.

Carlos is an excellent electrician. He’s a hard worker, flexible and very professional. I hired Carlos to bring my home into the current decade with a range of electrical work. From recessed lighting, updating outlets and switches, new fans, to gcfi outlets to installing smart smoke detectors, Carlos knocked it out of the park. He’s a great electrician and a great guy. Highly recommend for all of your electrical needs. 5 Stars

Julio was great - very personable, experienced and knowledgeable! He replaced 4 outlets with GFCI's and when confronted with improper wiring from the previous electrician, he patiently figured out how to correct it. He thoroughly answered my questions on other issues I had, and he left all of the work spaces clean and neat. I will definitely be referring Julio to anyone I know looking for a fairly priced and competent electrician.

They did a great job. They were on time, worked quickly and completed the job perfectly. I was not only impressed by the speed and quality of their work, but they gave me the best price of the four electricians I spoke to.

Carlos arrived at my residence and immediately worked to diagnose the problem. I had two electrical problems and Carlos found the problem with both. One of the problems was a little difficult to find but Carlos was there for the challenge and took care of both problems. I have found my electrician for life..

He responded quickly with an estimate and actually diagnosed the problem at a much less expensive than another electrician. He arrived on time, completed the repair and cleaned up afterward. Very professional. Also explained why he thought the break down had occurred in the first place.

Christian will definitely be my go-to electrician in future! I wanted to add outlets but some other electrician scared me by telling me that I have to change the entire electric box first. Christian came over, took a look and told me that “if you have money to spend it doesn’t hurt to have new things. But you don’t really need it now if you are not trying to spend money.” He could have tried to talk me into changing the box and make more money out of it but he didn’t. I really appreciate and respect that of him! He added the outlets and made the changes I needed in a very timely manner. Good job and fair price! Very responsive and very easy to work with. I would definitely recommend him for household electric jobs!

Matt was excellent! If you need an electrician, he is your guy! He’s very knowledgeable and does things the correct way. We have already discussed other projects that he will come back to handle. He is very friendly and respectful and left the place better than he found it. Thank you, Matt! I’ll see you in a few weeks. 🙂

Mike is an outstanding electrician - he is an amazing troubleshooter to identify the root cause and did a stellar job in mitigating of the issues I had. He also charged very reasonably and stayed extra long to make sure the job is done right. I recommend him to anyone who has an electrical issues in their houses. Will definitely use him again in future

Alejandro was very responsive to all my questions and got back to me in a timely manner. He showed up on time and was very professional. He was able to switch out all 6 light fixtures in my home in one day by himself. I received quotes from other electricians that were triple what he charged me. I will definitely hire him again.

If I could give negative stars, I would. Luis arrived for the job unprepared and had to make an appointment for another day. He then missed that and a subsequent third appointment, even though I gave him the option of backing out of the job. Luis does not communicate well I guess. He wasted my time and now, over 2 weeks later I have to look for another electrician.

I can not say enough about Ray. His responsiveness was extremely quick and impressive. He solved a very tricky electrical issue with our home and it took him no time to resolve it. During the whole time I felt extremely confident in his work and I would not only recommend him to anyone, but will consider him my on-call electrician for all my future issues. Thank you again Ray, you are amazing.

Robie did a fantastic job. Worked around our schedule. Arrived on time, was flexible when we wanted to add to the original scope. He installed new lights, ceiling fans, and ran cable from the basement to the attic and back into the bedrooms. I was fine with Robie running cable on the exterior of our house. He was not. He found a way to get the cables all the way up three floors inside the home. Very dedicated, very professional. Robie will be the only electrician in our phone book. Final comment, my wife felt very comfortable with him working in the house and my dog liked him!

Scheduled an appointment for them to come out on a Sunday knowing that there will be a $49 dollar charge. On the day of the appointment technician called me and notified that he still had not left his home (65 miles from my house) and that I should have gotten a phone call before the appointment was made as this job would require extra work. He then spent 40 mins going over how there would definitely be damage to the roof without even inspecting the place. I almost abandoned the project. Luckily another electrician stopped by the same day and spent an hr free of charge and complete the work today for 200 dollars less with no damage to the roof. These guys might be good but you may want to get a few quotes before you hire them

I originally hired someone else to do the job but they had an emergency and needed to postpone the job. I was on a timeline so I reached out to Larvell, gave him the scope of the job and he was able to come out and complete the job a few days later. I needed 8 recessed lights, on a dimmer installed in 2 rooms and they didn't have to cut my Sheetrock!! Him and his team are knowledgeable, professional and detail oriented. They explained the work before and after it was complete. I have a lot of electrical work that needs to be completed in other rooms and will hire Power Up Electrical Contractors again. I did speak with about 10 electricians when I first decided to add the lights in the house and no one took the time to access the situation the way they did.

DJ has been a breath of fresh air for my wife and I. We purchased a home and it needed a full revamp of the electrical system. We had met with 6 electricians before selecting DJ and his team of experts. We knew we didnt want to select the cheapest contractor, but we also had to stay within our budget. DJ showed up on time and gave us his quote the same day. He told us he wanted to earn our business and so we gave his company a shot.......And boy are we glad we did! DJ delivered the quality service that we were hoping for. He did more than we asked and even made brilliant suggestions for our layout. If DJ can tackle this full remodel, I cant imagine there is anything he cant do. We will be using DJ for all of our electrical needs moving forward!!
