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.

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.

Daniel from Rudder Electric came out and completed the work. He did it in a reasonable time period. The job was installing two outlets; one in and one out of garage. When the job was completed and made to look like it has always been there. The value was amazing. We had two other quotes. One was $1000 and the other was not a reputable company. We will definitely call Rudder Electric again.

Abel was amazing in solving something no one else could. He took my complicated fireplace wall and was able to install an outlet right where I needed it to conceal the cords from my tv mount. He was incredibly friendly, efficient and very reasonably priced. I will be using him for all of my electrical needs in the future.

It was a pleasure to have Ron and Alpha Electric complete a project for me. I needed to have an outlet installed for a new sump pump that was added after some waterproofing. He had to add a new circuit but also changed out a different outlet due to the age on the existing. He got back to me promptly. Requested pictures over the phone, reviewed, and then we spoke to clarify a few questions he had. He responded timely with a quote and showed up on time. He was a pleasure to deal with and we even discussed some other projects we have planned for the future.
