Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

Are there ways to be safe if I hire an electrician when social distancing?

If you decide to hire an electrician, choose virtual platforms for consultations like calling or video chats. Avoid any physical contact with the electrician, wave instead of shaking hands, stay 6 feet away, sanitize shared surfaces and use digital payment apps instead of cash.

Does an electrician need to enter my home?

Whether an electrician needs to enter your home depends on the type of work that needs to be completed. Any work on receptacles, lights and more located on the inside or outside of your house will likely require an electrician to enter your home.

Ask electricians in your area to perform a video consultation instead of a traditional walk-through to assess the project. During the consultation, they should be able to tell you if they’ll need to enter your home or not. 

Can I use digital payments to pay for electrical and wiring repair?

These days, many electricians will accept digital payments for electrical work and wiring repair instead of traditional cash or check. The COVID-19 pandemic has helped speed up the adoption of platforms like PayPal, Zelle, Square Cash, Venmo, Google Pay and others as a means of complying with social distancing guidelines.

As you search for electricians online, ask whether they’ll accept digital payment and set up a strategy for staying safe. 

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.

I contacted Hot Socket about an emergent electrical issue. They responded within the hour and repaired the problem on the following day (a Sunday). Subsequently, I hired them for other electrical work. In each instance, the crew arrived on time, was exceptionally polite, and respectful of my home while providing high-quality work at excellent value. I highly recommend Hot Socket for your electrical repairs and project needs.

I cannot say enough positive things about Lance. The reason I hired Lance was because he charged by the hour and I had a couple of things I wanted fixed. He worked quickly and effectively. Everything was repaired in a hour. Money well spent. Will be calling him with all my future electrical needs. (If only he did plumbing, painting and all other home repairs.)

John was a God send to me. He came on a Saturday morning at 8:00 am, which was awesome for me. I tried to do some electrical work DYI and that did not work out so well. John repaired my mistake and did a beautiful job. Very professional. His card is now taped inside my kitchen cabinet!!! I will call him again when I need electrical work done, for sure.

Scott and his associate were extremely knowledgeable, professional and their work exceeded all of our expectations. Scott customized the job to meet our short and long term home maintenance needs and provided valuable insight and explanations as to how and why we might or might not want to repair and maintain certain of our older electrical fixtures to meet those needs going forward. Scott went beyond the call of duty and even helped provide a recommendation for a (really good) HVAC repair man, who we were able to hire expeditiously and whose work was also top notch. I highly recommend Scott and Old-Fashioned Electric and will definitely hire again.

Ramin worked very hard to fix the issues with my electricity including new GFI plugs and re-wiring in various areas. He showed up promptly for our initial visit and arrived on time for the actual repairs the following day. He was very friendly and genuinely concerned that the job was completed and done correctly.

J&J came out and ran my entire electrician punch list. I have new bathroom vents, lights, dimmer switches, repaired outlets, and more. They were courteous and put a full day of work in, rarely needing anything from us. I will definitely go to J&J for future electrical work.

L&L Electrical Services did an excellent properly fixing a wiring issue affecting my garbage disposal. I contacted them in the morning, and Mr. Latrell was at my front door at our agreed upon time, just a few hours later. I was told by a previous repair person that I had faulty wiring running behind my dishwasher which was (supposedly) what was disabling my disposal. I was getting my mind ready for a detailed, expensive repair. Mr. Latrell, upon his arrival instantly diagnosed the problem, fixed it quickly and saved me a lot of money and aggravation in the process. I appreciated his honesty and professionalism. I will refer my neighbors and friends to him now. Great work!

Daniel was excellent. He arrived on time and completed the job within an hour. I had him install timers on several light switches throughout the house. He was easy to talk to and answered all of my many questions about the functionality of the units. He also made sure that the job was completed to my satisfaction and assisted me in setting up the timers and doing a “test run” to ensure that everything worked as planned. I will call Daniel in the future should I have any electrical repairs and recommend him to all of my friends.

We were so pleased we chose to work with Phillips Electrical, and all of our issues were fixed so well and in just a few hours. We had issues with flickering lights and multiple trips on our breaker, which was a big safety concern for me. DJ responded immediately and fit in an appointment with us the very next day. He diagnosed the problem, and was amazing about explaining the issues in detail, explaining the necessary repairs and provided a reasonable quote. We felt so much trust in his expertise based on how well he described the issues and suggested repairs. He also recommended (without pressure!) a surge protector for our breaker box to better protect the house long term. He followed up with a call later in the day after GA Power checked a few things (DJ’s suggestion) and followed up again the next day as well to ensure all the flickering lights were still fixed. We loved his support and professionalism. Highly recommend!

Where do I begin with Mr. Marks... First off, I had 24 hours to get this job done and this was the weekend. He reached back out to me quickly and we were able to schedule and appointment SAME DAY. Not only does he have great experience, but he truly cares about his customers and getting the job done right. He communicated very effectively— even sending me his ETAs when en route to my home. Friday, he came to assess my breaker/outlet due to my lights cutting off. Within 20 minutes, he knew what the issue had been and fixed it. He was patient and even showed me what the issue was and how he was going to repair it. After, he tested to make sure everything was fine and gave me his business card just in case I had any more electrical issues. FIRST specialist on Thumbtack to do this. That evening, I noticed the my lights had cut off again. I text Mr. Marks, to advise him of the issue again. He immediately texts me back to tell me that he could come first thing Monday. When I told him I had a very short period of time to get this job done, he modified his schedule and came the next day—Saturday. Although he had been all booked, he still went above and beyond to come out again to reassess the issue. He figured out what else had triggered the issue and fixed it. Duration: < 30 minutes. My lights never cutoff. Thank you again,Mr. Marks for your level of expertise and professionalism. Highly Recommend!
