How much does a licensed electrician cost per hour?

What do I need an electrician for?

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.

Are there ways to be safe if I hire an electrician when social distancing?

If you decide to hire an electrician, choose virtual platforms for consultations like calling or video chats. Avoid any physical contact with the electrician, wave instead of shaking hands, stay 6 feet away, sanitize shared surfaces and use digital payment apps instead of cash.

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.

Very little turn around between hiring and job completion. Smaller company with all the work ethic and quality of a bigger company but at a great price. They even were able to fix minor issues previous electrician left behind.

If you're looking an electrician, you'll be hard pressed to find someone better than Abel with A & S Wiring. He was very responsive, punctual and extremely professional. Having worked with a number of general contractors, Abel is top-notch. I'd highly recommend him.
Krishnamraju A.
Abel did an excellent job in re-wiring my kitchen and living room. The quality of work that he has done was exceptional. He charged very reasonable for the work he has done. Now , he is my no.1 choice for any future electrical work. I definitely recommend him for any body looking for an electrician.

Miles was prompt, professional, and knowledgeable, and trustworthy. He is personable and experienced. There is no need to look for anyone else if you have All About Electric in your contact list. Already have other projects for him to do. Worth every penny spent. He will be the only electrician I use going forward and I am very serious about that.

I called company to quote a job for my 76-yr old mother. John was prompt to give her a quote and very professional. The job was completed in a couple days. They did a nice job on replacing an outdated electrical panel. They left the work area neat and clean. I would recommend the John Buckley Co. to anyone looking for a competent, dependable electrician.

John Buckley was the first to respond to my Thumbtack request. He was able to schedule me for the next morning (Derby Day) to inspect my home's ground wires. John is very professional and polite and I felt completely at ease having him into my home. He explained everything to me in simple terms, took care of the repair, and charged a very reasonable rate. The next time I need an electrician, John's the man!

I really appreciated Ron and his wife coming out to fix an outlet issue. He figured out what was going on. Walked me through it all and how to fix it. I love that they were right on time and when I told him what had happened, he didn’t make me feel stupid for my husband and I trying to be “weekend warriors” for home improvements. I’ll definitely contact Ron for any thing else that might come up and need an electrician to take care of. Thanks Ron!!!

He was thorough in his diagnosis and was of great assistance to me. AND beyond reasonable!!!! I will definitely reach out to him for any other electrical issues and will certainly refer him to others. Thank you John!! :)

We just bought a new house that needed a light installed in a room with no current ceiling light. Everyone I spoke with at Chill Electric was extremely nice, timely, and courteous. The job ended up being more difficult and time consuming than anticipated, but the electrician never complained and was professional throughout the entire day. He cleaned up after himself and was friendly to my young children and small barking dog, which I know is a difficult characteristic to find when searching for someone to work in your home. I was able to receive communication via text when it was convenient and truly feel like this is a fantastic company. Definitely recommend!
