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.

What do I need an electrician for?

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

Can I use digital payments to pay for electrical and wiring repair?

These days, many electricians will accept digital payments for electrical work and wiring repair instead of traditional cash or check. The COVID-19 pandemic has helped speed up the adoption of platforms like PayPal, Zelle, Square Cash, Venmo, Google Pay and others as a means of complying with social distancing guidelines.

As you search for electricians online, ask whether they’ll accept digital payment and set up a strategy for staying safe.

I reached out to a few electricians on Thumbtack as advised by the app and Ryan was the first to respond to my inquiry. After explaining my electrical issue, Ryan felt the problem needed to be addressed as soon as possible and offered to come by and take a look at it that same day! When he arrived, Ryan got straight to work and was able to address both of my concerns! Ryan, thank you for coming out as quickly as you did and for the awesome job! I look forward to using you again for any future projects!

Omega Electric did an outstanding job for me. They rewired my entire house, added lights, made the lighting more efficient and put up new lights as well. They cleaned up each day after their work. I found the electricians friendly and very accommodating. They arrived on time and kept me informed of their schedule and work areas. I cannot say enough about the excellent service I received. I would highly recommend Omega Electric to anyone needing electrical services.

After searching on line for an electrician to complete multiple electrical projects, and calling several contractors who did not respond to my messages, I took a chance on Thumbtack since they kept popping up in my on line search. I can’t say enough about Matt and Rocco from Beantown Electric; they tackled each of my projects with professionalism. They were very friendly and cleaned up after each job. I was very impressed with their workmanship and care they took while completing each job. I am very happy with the work they did and will definitely consider hiring Beantown Electric in the future.

Chadi was phenomenal. I removed a couple of walls in my Condo to create an open-concept and needed the electrical panel relocated from the center of the unit to the utility closet. I spent months looking for an electrician to do the work but no one wanted touch it because it was labor-intensive. Then Chadi came along, he was a lifesaver. Although he was busy with other work, he managed to fit me in his schedule. He was very punctual (showed up at 8 am on the dot on a Holiday nonetheless). He completed the work in a few hours and went above and beyond and even upgraded my wiring and electrical panel. He cleaned up everything and took the time to review his work and labeled all of my breakers for. He was totally worth the wait. I will definitely be using him again in the future!
