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.

Let's just call iWire, The "Clean-Up" Electrician. Had I hired him first, then I would have saved a ton of $$$$. I hired Dave to repair outdoor outlets. These outlets failed three (3) times by each electrician doing "hack-work" or taking a shortcut resulting in my lights going out during a party for my wife. Such timing. As consumers, we shy away from the services that seem expensive, opting for the lower cost electrician, plumber, contractor, etc. We've all been there choosing the lowest cost bidder and expect the same result as hiring someone like Dave. Dave guarantees his work, is honest and excels at his craft. I finally found my go-to electrician! Thank you Dave and iWire!!! Chris Overland Park, KS

Justin was on time waiting for me when I arrived to the house. He installed 4 fixtures and dealt with redoing the former electricians shoddy work. I highly recommend this professional. He delivers!

I contacted Sure-Fire Contracting Inc for a garage transmitter installation. The electrician showed up just a couple hours after I made the call. He completed the project in a short period of time.

I needed a licensed electrician and Kelly sent Steve out the next day. Steve was on time and very professional. He diagnosed the problem fairly quickly and made sure I was happy with his work before he left.

Kaleb gave us the best price of all the electricians we talked to. His price was very reasonable, and he did a great job. Kaleb installed sensor lights and switches for us. He has a lot of experience, and we'd hire him again without a second thought. I highly recommend him!!

Two rooms of my house were without power on Sunday evening. I tried to troubleshoot the problem, but was unsuccessful. Technician called me back when I asked him to, he was earlier than I was expecting, and his troubleshooting skills were great to resolve hidden burnt wiring problem. From when he arrived to completing the project, was 60-75 minutes. Should I need a electrician again, I will be using KASE electrical.

We were thoroughly impressed with this team’s attention to detail and knowledge as professional electricians. They were timely, responsive, and went out of their way to install the Ring doorbell Pro and Ring wired Camera Plus. They worked together so well, even climbing into our attic yesterday when the temp was 100+ degrees to make wiring connections! Amazing work and respectful attitudes. They also are very cheery and nice! Hire them for your electrical work! You won’t regret it!

Luke was on time (even early} @ 8am on a Saturday morning - even early all the way from Lone Jack, MO. Spent 20 min discussing issues, a walk through with me showing him the breadth & mapping the dynamics of how the circuit was laid out. He then went to work. Less than 3.5 hours later the problem has been identified, isolated and corrective action discussed. I had spent several weeks trying to find a reliable and/or competent professional. Repairs took a little longer to do it right but Luke stayed with it, maintained a great attitude and didn't cut corners. Carries a good size battery powered vacuum cleaner in his truck and even washed off finger prints. Open communicator, honest . . . I would recommend him without hesitation based on this experience . . . . . . . . . on time, says what he’ll do, does what he says, no BS, not looking to burn your money, communicates during the process so that you know what is going on but not verbose, trustworthy, likable, professional, 20+ years exp, 1 yr on own, small or medium size jobs, wife is office manager. Licensed, insured, takes good care of tools and equipment. Cleans up. His work covers the entire KC Metro area and surrounding. Does both commercial and residential. Feel free to ask me if you have any questions that I can answer. No, I don't own stock in the company - LOL - but definitely my new go to electrician. You can't go wrong! T. B. Windsor
