Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What do I need an electrician for?

Electricians can help with a variety of electricity-related jobs around your home. If you have a new home, they can install new wiring throughout. Or if you have an old home, they can help with wiring repair. 

If your lights keep flickering, circuit breakers seem to be faulty, or outlets don’t have any power, electricians can assist in sorting out the problem. Your house is full of electrical circuits, wiring and sockets that may need repair or updating. These tasks can be safely completed by electricians in your area.

How much does a licensed electrician cost per hour?

An electrician’s average hourly rate is $75, but this price can range from $45-$120, depending on the complexity of the job and the materials needed. The total cost will also vary depending on how long your job takes and if the electrician charges for travel time.

Your location may also be a factor in determining the hourly rate of performing electrical work on your home. To get an accurate estimate of how much electrical work will cost you, contact the best electricians near you to receive free quotes.

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.

Just a terrific and professional electrician. Did the job on a Sunday!

Quoted rate on Thumbtack was $65 per hour, but said he charged $85 for the electrical work I needed performed. Paid the higher rate, but didn't agree with the hours he charged. Presents himself as an electrician when he is actually studying an electrician curriculum at a community college. He is not even to the level of an apprentice electrician. Some of the work he did does not work properly. Definitely would not hire him again.

Adam was very professional. He was able to repair a electrical problem that 2 other electricians tried and couldn't. Extremely happy with the work quality.

Kelly very quickly diagnosed the problem and set to work fixing it (an animal had chewed through a wire in the attic). Worked quickly and efficiently to string a new wire and get our power back on in our master bedroom and closet. This guy definitely knows what he is doing. We had another electrician come to the house first that couldn't diagnose the problem. Also, he and his apprentice worked to keep the work area clean (during and after) - kind of a pain going back and forth to their truck on a rainy day. Fair price, too. My tak - Excellent value to get your electrical problems fixed.

Immediate response, excellent work!!! After KCPL installed a smart meter on my house, some lights were blinking and the doorbell had static noise. KCPL came out to check and said they had connected two wires, but one was loose, which they then fixed. Same problems happened 30 minutes later. Called them again, they said problem was in homeowner's wire from meter socket to house, and I needed an electrician! IWIRE responded immediately, Dave was at my house 30 min. later. He had to troubleshoot the problem: he discovered smoke in the panel in the basement!! Dave replaced the meter socket, after coordinating his work with KCPL and city inspector. Dave was rational and thorough, and worked patiently with the utility company. I would definitely call Dave again for any electrical issue!!!
