Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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?

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Jim is an exceedingly professional electrician. He promptly responded to our request for help, arrived on time, diagnosed our issue quickly, and explained and remedied the problem efficiently. It was clear that safety is a priority for him and that was very much appreciated. We will be hiring Jim for any and all future electrical work, and recommend him without reservation.

Due to Thumbtack policies, I am unable to remove the original review left. Please disregard it. It was left as a mistake and misleading. Jerome is a professional skilled electrician who handled my project very well. His communication and professionalism are superb. He delivered what needed to be done and informed me of each update as we went through the project. Due to budget issues, we had to cut the project short, however, I would hire his company again. Thanks Jerome!

I called upon David Monroe when our house lost power to our hot water heater over the weekend. As a working single Mom with two small kids, this was a job I needed done fast. David responded promptly and was available to meet same day. His price was fair and he got the job done. I will definitely hire David in the future and would most certainly refer him to friends and family in need of an electrician! Thanks David!

Jason did a great job he was really friendly, very professional and he gave me the best quote out of many electricians. His pricing is extremely fair and when he came he was right on time. Having never met him before I felt very comfortable right away letting him in the house being a father of two young kids I'm always cautious about that but Jason was great and as a father and a customer I would recommend Jason over anyone else for those reasons and because the work he did came out great, he did everything the right way which is so important to any home owner and overall I can't say enough about him and his work. ty - Brian M.

I have been a tradesman for 40 years. I know my own trade very well (carpentry) and have won awards along the way. I have also been fortunate to work alongside other tradesmen that excel in their field. Matt is an example of such person. He is not satisfied with a quick, or, the simplest result, but is in constant thought of the solution for today, and keeping aware of future need and potential issues. Not all tradesmen strive to elevate their skills, Matt does, and it shows in his work. He truly cares that the job is neat, adequate, and to code. I have observed many tradesmen that just don't care, and treat their profession like it's 'just a job'. Most people don't know it, but neatness counts! My kitchen is better for his work, and my electric system is now less of a worry, in our old home. If you're looking for an electrician, look no further! Matt is a gentleman, professional, and very fairly priced. I could not recommend anyone more highly. In fact, I will gladly begin referring work to him soon.
