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.

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.

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.

He went and looked at the problem. He did not have the equipment to deal with such a large problem, so he referred me to another electrician.

William is knowledgeable, honest and friendly electrician. We had a small job that could’ve easily been a large one but he identified a simple solution. Plus he is a nice guy. We will definitely use him again.

The work and professional approach Jeff and his electricians brought to our project were exceptional. Couple that with their response to a question of practicality of one of my ideas was professional and exactly what was required. Great to work with and responsive. What more could you require?

I received a quote from and then hired Skyline Electric to install a couple of chandeliers. The work was done for the quoted price in a timely manner. The electrician who did most of the work (two were sent for the job) took the time to answer all of my questions about the job and also about the wiring in the house in general. Would recommend Skyline.

If there were 6 stars....I'd give him 6! So professional and knowledgable. I'm going to hire him to do a bunch of other work around the house (things I had been putting off because I didn't have an electrician who was fairly priced, easy to work with, and flexible with time/hours.) I can't recommend enough!

I bought a house a month ago and Jeff made a visit to my new a house after my house inspection to help me make a decision whether or not to buy the place. After talking to Jeff, he made me feel comfortable about the condition of the old electrical which was outdated. And gave me an estimate Jeff was so busy and wanting the work done right away I decided to hire another electrician.. BIG MISTAKE. I got in touch with Jeff and told him how I jumped the gun and got taken by an unethical electrician. Jeff was sympathetic and understood. Jeff's crew came out and completed most of the work in 4 hours .. Wow. Very impressive company... I highly recommend Skyline Electric. I will always hire Jeff and his crew. Good people and honest. I am giving them 10 stars on a 5 star scale

Top notch. We are very happy with communication, work quality AND he has great people skills! Michael was very kind to our 85 yo Mother! He understands seniors and their concerns. He worked clean and efficiently. Very happy customer here. They're in my contact list. I will recommend MNJU Services LLC to anyone that asks us if we know an electrician. DWiger

Extreme professionals! Cody and I had several conversations about the work needed on my house. Although I was not happy about the work needed on the house I had just purchased, Cody was firm in his approach to quality work and safety in the home. He would not cut corners in the job plan. Team Finch arrived on time with a team of 3 electricians. They were well-organized, worked efficiently and provided high quality work. I will keep Finch Electric’s number handy for future work and highly recommend them.

These guys installed three new outlets in my garage using my furnished outlets (with usb charging ports). They were able to provide an estimate via Thumbtack using an annotated picture that I provided of where I wanted the outlets in the garage. They gave a two-hour window of arrival and arrived during that window. They did a professional job, answering all of my questions and explaining what they were doing and why. The electricians were two very nice, personable men. I thought their fee was reasonable. I plan to hire them again for any of my future electrical needs.

Jesse was wonderful to work with from start to finish. I’m awful at answering my phone, so I really appreciated when his message to me on Thumbtack included the options to message him back through Thumbtack, call him, email him, or, my preference, text! We were able to find a time that worked for both of us within a week of my reaching out to him, and even with a snow storm he was at my house on time and ready to work. While working you can really tell he enjoys what he does as I heard him whistling to himself on more than one occasion. I’m very grateful Jesse was able to finish/fix all of our half done/failed attempts at being our own electrician. None of our lights spark, trip a fuse, or simply fail to turn on anymore and all of our outlets will hold a plug again! I’ll definitely be reaching out to Jesse for any of our future electrical needs!
