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.

Read our cost guide, “How much do switch and outlet installation cost?

Do I need an electrician to add an outlet?

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.

Albert was able to install a new electrical outlet in a tucked away area of my washer/dryer closet. He created a new trip in my electrical box as this was for a washing machine. Very satisfied and highly recommend !

Very professional, beautiful installation of an outlet on an enclosed back porch. He suggested the perfect position for it, installed it super quickly, and was the best deal around. I will use him for all future electrical needs!

Power Up Electric was AWESOME to work with. Al was accommodating with scheduling. He showed up early and his insight and skills were phenomenal! Al installed new outlets in requested areas. 5 lights were installed and 1 ceiling fan. Power Up Electric is HIGHLY recommended and reasonable for your electrical needs. Look no further! We would definitely use Al again.

Robert was amazing. He installed my TV mount and electrical outlet in a breeze. He even took care of installing my Nest thermostat and a floor panel for me free of charge. Highly recommend Robert to anyone in need of a handyman or electrician!

We used Vaca Electrical to install an outlet into our condo building’s basement. They responded to our project right away with a quote that was more reasonable than other thumbtack professionals and businesses in the area. They came on the next business day, on time, and installed the outlet with no issues - it took less than an hour. The final bill matched the quote given exactly. Would absolutely hire them again!

M&S Z Electric were on time, clean, and polite. They responded quickly to emails and the quoted price did not change. The price was VERY reasonable after getting multiple quotes. We had an outdoor outlet installed which turned out very nicely. I would hire again for any electrical needs we have in the future.

Needed to mount a TV with power outlet installed right behind it so none of the wires would show (it's outside Chicago code to run electrical lines behind the wall.) Jason did a fantastic job and I would recommended him for this type of work!

Al was great to work with. I needed additional outlets installed prior to new cabinets being put in. He was responsive and completed the work within a few days of initial contact. His price was also very reasonable and helped looked at a couple of other electrical-related items around the house.

I couldn’t be happier with the work done by Fox Valley! I needed some electrical work done in the garage on a tight schedule. Joe helped me understand my options, provided competitive estimates, and completed a big project with very rapid turnaround (even though it was snowing and below freezing that weekend). We had a sub panel installed in the detached garage (that required trenching from the house), 6 lights, 6 electrical outlets, and an electric car charger installed in the garage. Everything is working great! In a few months I will need some electrical work done on the interior of the house. I had a great experience with Fox Valley, and I will definitely be calling them again for that project.

Mirzet is highly recommended for your electrical needs. He installed an outlet above my fireplace with efficiency and precision. He did this with minimal cutting and even though there was a little extra work he stuck with his original price quote. He also did a few other little jobs (replacement light fixture and can lights) for me for a good price.

Al was incredibly responsive and professional. He was able to answer all of my questions, was very flexible with his schedule and extremely kind. I hired Al to install a new electrical and cable outlets behind a mounted flat screen TV. His price was fair, he provided all materials and cleaned up after himself. I will definitely be using Al as my go-to electrician moving forward!
