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.

Reviews for Ashburn electrical outlet installers

I was very impressed by Compass Electric. I needed a large TV mounted with a new outlet installed and other cords hid. I had a very specific vision in mind. John worked with me to not only understand how I wanted it done but then to carry it out. He was punctual, efficient and provided a great value for the work I needed done. Besides that, I thought he was an all round good guy to work with. I will definitely use Compass Electric for future electrical needs.

Febro does an amazing job. He explains the project back to you to ensure you are on the same page and walks you through some different options to further customize the project to you liking. He is extremely professional, knowledgeable, and responsive. Our project to put a 240v outlet in the garage for a future EV purchase was not easy. Some contractors even said they were not comfortable doing it when we were getting quotes. Febro was able to do a great job! I highly recommend for you EV outlet install or any other electrical items you have. Just make sure you understand if drywall needs to be cut and how you would like that patched afterwards.
