Charlotte B. says, "I actually never employed I am Electric, but one of their technicians reached out to me last night when I had a major electrical issue that took out half my house. I am Aline in my home after my husband died suddenly this year, and so I was afraid of the outage. The technician could not come to my property but he helped me figure out that my house would not burn down, which calmed me down. He told me which breaker switches to turn off. It turns out that my main breaker got fried, probably in a regional power outage a week ago. I am forever grateful to the technician who reached out to a scared widow on a Sunday night."See more

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much does it cost to install a light fixture?

If you want to have a light fixture installed, the cost will likely be between $90 to $250 per fixture. The actual cost will depend on a number of factors, the first of which is the professional you hire. To find out how much you can expect to spend, contact several lighting installation professionals near you and ask for free estimates.

The type of fixture can also impact costs. For example, traditional ceiling mounts are usually less expensive than recessed lighting. The number of lights that need to be installed is another cost factor. 

Learn more about lighting costs by reading “How much does it cost to install light fixtures?

Do you need an electrician to install a light fixture?

Whether you need to hire a lighting installation service or an electrician to install a light fixture depends on the type of fixture, the complexity of your electrical wiring, and most of all, your experience and comfort. Depending on the location of the fixture, you may need to run wiring and install switches. If you don’t have any previous electrical experience, it’s quite possible to make a mistake that could create a hazard. However, if you know what you’re doing, installing a light fixture is fairly trivial.

How do you install a ceiling light fixture?

Some of the steps involved in installing a ceiling or hanging light fixture including removing the old fixture, inspecting your wiring, turning off the power at the breaker box, connecting wires and attaching the fixture. Some of the tools, equipment and materials you might need include a step ladder, screwdrivers, screws, wire strippers, wire connectors, a power drill, pliers or more.

If you don’t have the necessary equipment or don’t feel comfortable installing your ceiling light on your own, contact a lighting professional instead. 

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.

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

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.

Danny and Richard fixed all of our electrical problems in 2 hours! Two porch lights and 5 outlets weren't working. Now everything is working perfect! There are electrical contractors out there that will charge a fortune! Danny gave us a more than fair price and knew exactly how to fix everything. We have some additional lights we want installed outside. Danny will be the one we'll call first!

Jessi gave me a price on the Tel. I thought he was fair priced and hired him. (I had 2 ather estimates) He removed old florescent lights, installed reasses lights. He also installed a fan in the family room. He had it all done in one day. He does great work and very professional. I would hire him again and recommend him to my friends and family.

Mario and his team did an amazing job— 15 recessed lights with dimmers, and two ceiling fans. The quality of work was 10/10. I love the new look of my very well-lit home! Mario kept us updated on the progress on the project, he was reasonably priced, and kept us in the loop with price adjustments as we tweaked the job here and there. I highly recommend Mario for recessed lighting and fan installation. THANK YOU MARIO!!!

Hector and his crew did an outstanding job. From the first response to saying goodbye, I felt like he cared about our needs. We got 6 recessed can lights installed, sliders put in, update light switches, installed GFCI, installed our tv wall mount and did it all at a very reasonable price and worked quick. Look forward to having them work on more and will refer him to others. Thank you so much for the comfort and care!!

Edward did an outstanding job on my home. He was actually a blessing in disguise! After completing the original job and being so happy with the outcome I decided to have him change out some additional lighting with LED spotlights to highlight my artwork and he found one of the lights had been burned and could have potentially started a fire in my attic...Couldn't be happier with his service and the outcome of the overall job!! I'm so pleased he was apart of the Thumbtack family of services...

Rick did an exceptional job of installing my pool table light on a raised slanted ceiling perfectly centered over the table. He also moved the existing ceiling fan to a new room that was not pre-wired. Very thorough and professional. I will definitely hire Rick again for any future work needed.

Danny and his assistant installed new recessed LED lights in my family room and living room both on the first floor in a two story home. The patch work and paint on the wall and ceiling was a little less than desirable, but overall satisfied with the work completed. I would hire Danny again for my future electrical needs.

Jeffrey came at the time agreed, the work was excellent and the price was fair! My husband was at home while he completed the work. He stated that he has stellar electrical skills. I'm really happy with the work. He wired two rooms for lighting, installed the switches and installed the ceiling fans. Replaced and installed 3rd ceiling fan that was existing. Thank you Jeffrey! Excellent work!
