Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

Does an electrician need to enter my home?

Whether an electrician needs to enter your home depends on the type of work that needs to be completed. Any work on receptacles, lights and more located on the inside or outside of your house will likely require an electrician to enter your home.

Ask electricians in your area to perform a video consultation instead of a traditional walk-through to assess the project. During the consultation, they should be able to tell you if they’ll need to enter your home or not. 

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. 

Reviews for Ashburn electrical repairers

Puna From pearl is the young man I worked with. I cannot put in words what a blessing he was to my daughter and I. I had called several companies and no one could put me on the schedule before Monday. 1/2 of our electric was out and he came out at 730 or 8pm so we would not be without our service. He found the issue quickly made the necessary repairs as well as explained what happened and how to avoid issues in the future. I have a major electrical project that I must complete as soon as fund are available and his bid was much lower than any I have been given. Needless to say I will be using Pearl Electric for this major repair as well. I hope to have Puna to service all my electrical issues from now on. If you want quality service at an affordable price don’t bother to make any call except Pearl Electric.

If I could have rated them higher I would have!Tremendous customer service! Responded immediately to my request,on a Saturday morning none the less and on time as promised. Kaleb evaluated my electrical situation and to my surprise and relief,the problem wasn't what I thought it would be to which he fixed. He also found some other problems that I had no idea about that could have led to a fire. He fixed them all at a very,very less than anticipated price. Me and my wife live out of state and we use our home as rental property,needless to say,we have found our new go to electrical guy and all around company for many of our other home repair needs.

We had a tree come down in a storm that knocked out our power over the weekend. Casey was out to take a look on Sunday and was able to get all necessary repairs made Monday morning so we could get our power restored by KCPL. Casey was honest, prompt and communicated everything related to the project clearly. He ended up saving me over $2,000 from the bids I was getting from major electrical vendors in the area because he was HONEST about what was required by code, not simply up-selling or trying to scare me into unnecessary repairs. Casey clearly explained the code requirements, and kept the door open by advising that if we received any pushback from KCPL he would come back to take care of the issues. Casey was correct on his initial assessment, and when it was all said and done we had power restored in under 48 hours. Larger outfits were requesting that we wait 5 business days and pay nearly $3,000 to address the problem. Casey was able to reuse some material to save money, and his final work product was neat, clean, square and level. He cleaned up when his work was finished and followed up with me several times to ensure our power was restored promptly by KCPL. He did not have to do that, but I really appreciated the concern and follow up. I am so pleased with Casey's service that I am compiling a list of other electrical repairs for him to address in the future. I had a wonderful experience with Casey and look forward to working with him again soon.
