Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

Contact the best electricians near you today to start receiving free estimates for your project.

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.

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. 

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.

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.)

Highly professional and excellent work quality. High knowledge of work led to quick troubleshooting and repair that, in turn, led to less time charged at an already outstanding rate. A follow-up was needed which Robert responded to immediately at no charge. Will be my "go to" for all future electrical needs.

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.

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!

Jean arrived to initial appointment on time as promised. He noticed I have light colored carpeting and removed his shoes voluntarily without me asking. Evaluated my problem then explained the solution. Provided me a solid estimate and scheduled the 2nd appointment for a couple of days later. Arrived on the date and time promised. Fixed my issues by changing 2 switch units and repairing a outlet. His service was as promised on the estimate. Cleaned up after he finished the job. I will rehire him with no hesitation. He was punctual, respected my home, explained and fixed issues as promised. His estimate was fair amount was as promised. What else do I want from a Contrator? Nothing, Jean filled the bill with no hiccups. Would recommend to anyone in need of electrical problems.

This is an update: We thought we had solved the problem last year, but without fail, it kept happening. So I called Russ to have him come back out and he did so, 2 more times...at no additional charge because he wanted us to be satisfied and personally had never seen an issue like this before. Well, he figured out! This after pulling every outlet, light switch (twice), he discovered the fan's internal relay was causing the circuit to trip. Once he disconnected that, everything starting working without the constant tripping. That level of detail and service oriented focus is why I can confidently say he's the best electrician and contractor for that matter, I've ever hired. Thank you Russ! Can't say enough about Russ! Russ did an excellent job in identifying and making the necessary repairs, promptly, while taking the time to explain a few questions that I had concerning my electric service panel. I had received several inquires for electrician services via Thumbtack and in fact had called another electrician first, but that company flaked on his appointment, so I called Russ - an hour later, he was at the house in between appointments to try and sort out my problem. Fast/Friendly/Fair - best experience I've had with an electrician to date!
