Patrick K. says, "Tom did an exceptional job on my side yard project. He was exceptionally interactive in our discussion about the design of the project and had great suggestions which we incorporated. He kept me informed as to when work when would be done and actually showed up at those times ( an attribute in contractors that is seemingly quite rare these days). The project came out exceptionally nice and exceeded my expectations by a considerable amount. He was friendly, personable, and just a dog on hard worker. Anybody would benefit from having Tom work on their Landscaping projects. I absolutely know I have more work for him to do come spring."See more

Dave F. says, "When Steve got to the house we were building we had just fired the general contractor. Steve got on the job and noticed the things the general contractor had screwed up. The house had issues, not only in the heating and air conditioning, but in other aspects as well. I did not know Steve at this point and time. I had never met him. For some reason Steve took it upon himself to point out what was needed to make the heating and air conditioning work properly in our home. He also helped me with other things in the home that needed to be changed or repaired. I was impressed by his integrity, his knowledge and the fact that he actually gave a damn about a job being done properly. In this day and age you do not meet very many people who have character and actually do what they say they will do and more. To say I would recommend Steve is an understatement. I can’t endorse him enough. As a lifelong resident of Idaho and a business owner, I know the value of a good business and a good business owner and Steve is all of that and more! Sincerely, Dave Ford"See more

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

We placed the job on Thumbtack Saturday morning and Aaron had the switch replaced before noon. Aaron did an amazing job. I will definitely hire him again the next time I need an electrician.

I had a cluster of daisy-chained fire hazards waiting to happen. Rick showed up right on time and unraveled the mess of wires and got all of my electrical switches straightened out quickly. He knew exactly what he was doing, fixed my issue quickly. He is a licensed electrician, so there was no guessing for him. He also has a great sense of humor. I would HIGHLY recommend using Rick, The Electrical Handyman again. Excellent work from a great professional!

After working for several municipalities over the years, I have learned the value of three quotes. I selected Arcc Electric LLC after looking at all aspects, he had the quickest response time for installing a new 50 amp breaker in the panel, pulled wire and installed a drop leg with EMT and local disconnect box for our new spa. Arcc Electric is a great electrician, he comes prepared and leaves the job site better than found. I will use him again and recommend him for any electrical project you may have! If you want any additional information, please sent me an email at raceronedesert@gmail.com and I will answer any questions about my experience with Arcc Electric. Will add photos later. Troy Nampa
