Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much does it cost to have an outlet installed?

If you plan on hiring a professional electrician to install an outlet, expect to pay $75 to $500, or an average of $210. But for an accurate cost estimate, you need to contact a few electrical outlet installers near you.

The light switch and outlet types may impact your cost. The location of the outlet also matters, as the electrician may have to route additional wiring and may not have access to existing wiring. If you need the outlet childproofed, this may also cost more.

Generally, this is a job best left to a licensed professional. A licensed electrician will be able to install your outlet using the most up-to-date code practices. If you need any permits to perform the install, the electrician should also be able to obtain them for you.

Do I need a permit to install GFCI outlets?

Depending on where you live, you likely need a permit to install GFCI outlets. When in doubt, get in contact with your local government, and ask a licensed electrician to perform your electrical work.

Reviews for Evanston electrical outlet installers

Bryan is professional, polite and knowledgeable . He installed a power outlet. It was quick and competitive value. I highly recommend him and I’m already considering him for future electrical work.

Alex was great - He brought me with them to Home Depot, which allowed me to buy the parts (and return any unused after the project was complete) so I only paid for what was used and there were no additional mark-ups on the products. He and his partner installed a ceiling fan, a couple new outlets, and the wired my electric dryer (which didn't come with it's own plug). Great work!
