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.

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.

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.

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.

Do electricians offer remote or virtual services?

While electrical work is typically performed in person, you may come across some electrician profiles that state the pro is offering remote services. If you do, contact local electricians to discuss your particular project and what type of remote services they may offer.

I had a outside flood light and some inside electrical work needed done in a commercial building. Electrician was on time for a quote and for the job at hand. Did work in a timely manner and was right on budget. Very honest with his pricing, hard to find now a days! Looking for a electrician do not hesitate and call Solid State Electric.

Ever since I became a home owner, I have been searching for an electrician I can trust. When I met Jerry it became very clear, he is a true professional who has extensive experience and actually cares about helping his customers. He is thoughtful, polite and communicates clearly. He did extensive troubleshooting and was able to explain all of my options in a way a non electrician can understand. I even paid him ahead of time and he actually showed up the next day to finish the job! Thanks Jerry!

Steve was excellent: I needed fairly complex diagnostics and wiring work done and he responded the SAME day and made time for me. He was thorough, professional, knowledgable, explained everything and really a savior since he literally fixed everything. Thank you, Steve! He is my new electrician and you cannot go wrong!

I would rate this guy negative 5 stars if I could for his arrogant and negative attitude.Told me I should look for other electricians on here.Seemed annoyed & impatient with my questions.I wanted the project done a certain way he felt couldn’t be done without damage.I agreed & decided to go with his advice only for Joe to refuse the job.

Tom came out to my rental for some electrical issues and helped diagnose the problem upon his first visit. So far I’ve replaced 5 lighting fixtures, added an outlet to an exterior wall and some panel work. He is extremely knowledgeable, professional and loves his work. Very upfront and honest. He provided me with options and pricing so I could use my best judgement without trying to sway me. I now have a regular electrician that I can depend on and will be referring him to all of my family and friends . Thank you for your great work !
