Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Bill got back to me within 5 minutes of posting on Thumbtack. He came out and fixed my electrical issue within 24 hours. He was fast, knowledgeable, and professional. I am so happy that I found an excellent electrician.

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.

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

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!
