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.

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.

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.

Unfortunately I did not get my electrical issue resolved and was not happy with the follow-up. I paid and got nothing resolved. Another electrician came and identified my problem in 5 minutes.

If you are in need of an electrician that is knowledgeable, thorough, and professional, please give them a call. You will not be disappointed.

Dennis is an excellent electrician. He showed up on time and worked through the day to complete the job. He takes pride in his work by making sure it’s done correctly. He did an outstanding job on all of the projects that I asked him to do. I am a satisfied customer. I would definitely hire him again, and well as recommend him to other customers.

Knowledgeable and friendly, was able to most of my electrical issues, and the one issue he couldn’t he provided an easier alternative which I would be able to do myself. Was originally assigned another electrician who got held up at the previous job so the time window was delayed as they sent someone else. They charged by an hourly rate which was a little too pricey for me though.

I couldn't be happier with my choice. Alex was prompt, he was courteous and extremely thorough. The fact that he was a nice person is only secondary. He is an excellent electrician. He was very clear in explaining to me the process. His rates were reasonable and his workmanship was excellent. I've already started lining him up for future projects. I would absolutely recommend Alex for your electrical or handyman work.

I have found my electrician!! Damien is very professional, knowledgeable, and prompt. He informed me of the whole process ahead of time so I knew exactly what to expect. He installed recessed lights in our living and dining room and I am so happy with how it turned out. I highly recommend hiring him and his crew. I am definitely going to hire him for my future projects!

Dennis was an amazing and very skilled electrician. We were very pleased with his work and his communicative skills to share with us exactly what we needed to know. My husband said he will never use another electrician and we are already getting our next job ready for him to do for us. He removed, installed an existing light fixture in our master bath and also installed a new one over the two mirrors. My husband and I are senior citizens and he had problems seeing clearly with just the one light fixture. We thought we were going to have to get someone come in and fix the wall opening where he removed the first light fixture but he installed a plate over it, saving us additional money! Dennis made my husband’s dream come true on his birthday......he was able toed how to shave just fine and no longer needed to use the hall bathroom to shave. Dennis did a fantastic job and we were so happy with the completed job! Thank you Dennis for your excellent work. I am in the process of getting the light fixture so you can put it on the wall going down the steps to our basement. Forgot to state that he was also very reasonable and left our bathroom in the same order he found it. Awesome and very likeable young man. If you need electrical work done, call him....you won’t be disappointed!

I was very satisfied with Electrician Rocha. We communicated via thumbtack in setting up an appointment. This was my 1st time use for this site, so a little cautious. He showed up on time, reviewed areas I wanted outdoor electric outlets, informed me of what was needed, confirmed the cost (which was reasonable) and completed the work. He was quick and sure in his work and even changed out my indoor outlets when I requested it. (I thought I had extra indoor outlets, but did not, but he had some on his truck. He even sent me information on the install of a hard wired door bell. I highly recommend E. Rocha for any electrical work needed.

Deserving of top billing! Alfredo is a detail oriented, professional, and his work is amazing. Hired to install a Tesla charger station, several new outlets, and a subpanel junstion box. working on the main junction box revealed a nightmare of mislabeled wiring, old terminations, out of code breakers, and what can only be described as a DIYers idea of cleanliness within the junction box. other electricians would have just worked around this and ignored the issue to get the job done and get paid. Instead Alfredo really took time to walk through the options and what we could do to not only fix it, but do so within budget and to code. Above and beyond, he did a fantastic job and I will definitely be using him again on the future.
