How much does a licensed electrician cost per hour?

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.

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.

Dawan was willing to talk me through my electrical issues over the phone before charging me, even though it seemed as if I might not need his services! After I realized that I couldn't DIY my project, he was able to come right over and assist me! His professionalism throughout the process was top notch and he is a great electrician!

Luis did an excellent job! He installed all the light fixtures which included outlets, pendant lights, track lights, emergency exit signs and wall scones. Luis was very professional and completed the work in the time frame that he specified. Luis had the best prices out of over 15 electricians that we received quotes from. We will use him on all our buildings in the future. Thanks Luis for being awesome!

Looking for an Electrician! I recommend Martin Jones. I was in need of having lights put up in my kitchen and outside in an area that is very dark at night. In my kitchen over my stove so that while I’m cooking I will have enough light to see my amazing meals👌. Outside to have adequate lighting to set my trash out if I forget during the day. I was soooooooo excited about his work that I kept complementing him. I am very pleased, thank you.

I'm currently in the middle of a large home remodel. Robinson Electric Company has been doing various electrical projects for me over the past couple of months and I've been very pleased with the work. Overall, I have a general distrust of contractors but Robinson Electric Company has slowly gained my trust through quality work and responsiveness. It's stressful enough doing a home remodel, the last thing I want to worry about is the person I've hired to work in my house. Thank you Robinson Electric Company for making my future electrician choice easy. I will continue to use you for all of my electrical needs.

Buying beware!!! I contact Beverly to hand 2 fixtures and change out light switches from cream to white. Simple right? He arrive in time 3:15 on a Friday afternoon and some 6+ hours later I have ZERO power in the entire middle floor of my house! I decided that was enough of “his attempt” to fix it and ask he and his side kick (female) to leave. He was polite enough...and did attempt for hours to fix the issue. But all to no avail. I suggest you find a certified electrician and save yourself the headache and time. It’s been 2 weeks without power on the middle level of my home. And cost me some $450 to rectify his jack up. Don’t use him Don’t use him! Pay the difference to get it done correctly!

This is a long story and I am going to make it as detailed and less confusing as possible: I hired John (electrician) because my tenant's AC stopped blowing cold air. First, I hired an HVAC (air/heat) person to come out and he stated there was no power going to the AC unit outside. So an electrician would need to check and fix that issue which is the reason why I hired John. 1st appointment - John did not show for the 1st appointment nor send a message that he was not going to show. When I reached out to him he stated that he was at the hospital with a relative and needed to reschedule so we scheduled for the following day. During the first visit John worked on (we are going to call them AC Unit A & B) AC Unit A. He stated that when he checked, the wires going to AC Unit A did not have electrical current and he was able to fix that. Now electrical current was flowing but Unit A's fan did not kick on. He stated the AC guy would have to come back out. Before I move on the the next part of the story: As I mentioned above, we have AC Unit A and B. To continue to set up the scene there is Apt. 1 and 2. Apartment 1 is the apartment with the AC issue and Apt. 2 is the other apartment we will talk about in the second half of the story. The HVAC (air/heat) person came back out and did not charge for the follow up call. After checking the units he and I walked over to the area where the units are. (Keep in mind, the first time the HVAC (air/heat) person came out the electricity was on in Apt. 2 but was not on when John came out and still was not on at this time). The HVAC (air/heat) person placed the electrical circuit tester up to AC unit B to show that there was no electrical current, it was very low. He stated when he came out AC Unit A was working and AC Unit B was not because there was no electrical current. So basically, Unit A is connected to Apt 2 and Unit B is connected to Apt. 1, so overall John worked on the wrong AC Unit. The wires going to Unit A belonged to Apt. 2 and was working prior to the electricity being shut off. So I scheduled a follow up visit with John. 2nd appointment - John sent me a message, if an hour prior to the appointment, stating he needed to reschedule because he was at court. I asked did he not know he had to go to court the day before or before 10am that day? It did not make sense; however, I agreed to reschedule. On the second visit, John came out and things did not go well. I explained to him what the HVAC (air/heat) person stated - that when he was out the first time AC Unit A was working which means that unit controls Apt. 2 and Unit B controls Apt 1 (the apt with the issue). John stated that was not correct, that Unit A is connected to Apt 1 and he knew that for sure. He and I went back and forth because I was only trying to understand the logic, but he took it as if I was trying to do his job or whatever. So, I ended the conversation because he and I were going nowhere. I went into my apartment and a few seconds later John knocked on my door and said "that will be $65". I was thrown back because professionals who want to maintain a good customer base usually do not charge for follow up calls, plus I had paid John $125 for the first visit and my issue still was not resolved and I was not sure if it was the AC Unite or electrical. Well, I closed my door and I did not pay the $65. I was able to have the electricity turned on in Apt 2 the next day and once it was on AC Unit A kicked on which means that Unit was connected to Apt. 2. So what did John fix? I had to call another electrician to come out; because the issue was not resolved. I did not inform this electrician about the issue I had with John and the story. I did tell him that the HVAC (air/heat) guy stated there was no electrical current coming from the wires on Unit B. This guy took his time to figure out the issue which was not just to get the electrical current going to the wires. The issue was a little more confusing and tricky but he worked it out and got AC Unit B to kick on. Now, my tenant has cold air and all is well. This was a very unpleasant and annoying experience. I actually paid John for doing nothing. Then he had the audacity to want to charge me again, stating that I wasted his time. Well, he wasted my time and money. My elderly tenant did not have cool air for about 3 weeks due to this back and forth situation.
