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.

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.

Does an electrician need to enter my home?

Whether an electrician needs to enter your home depends on the type of work that needs to be completed. Any work on receptacles, lights and more located on the inside or outside of your house will likely require an electrician to enter your home.

Ask electricians in your area to perform a video consultation instead of a traditional walk-through to assess the project. During the consultation, they should be able to tell you if they’ll need to enter your home or not.

Not dependable. Came to my home and said he’d return with electrician to fix job. The day he was to come, he text and cancelled, and never heard from him again. Be careful letting these guys in your house and they not show back up. What was his purpose for coming??😒

I am very satisfied overall with LVG Elecrical & Communications. I reached out to them after another electrician had flaked on us. They came out to do a quote within a couple of days of me contacting them. I received the quote the same day and work started a few days later (counting the weekend). They arrived promptly at 7 am on the day of the job and worked diligently until all of the work was completed, which was a lot as I had several light fixtures replaced or installed. Some before and after pictures are attached.

I've had a terrible experience with this company. On 9/14/2020, He showed up on time at 8:30am. I informed him that two outlets and one light needed to be replaced. It took him four hours to do these three simple things. During this four hour time period, my outdoor cameras seen him going to his van over sixty times with the longest return time of 29 minutes. He then had to contact someone because he did not have a 240 switch in his van. Once the person brought him the switch, "My cameras seen know one coming to bring him anything", he completed the task and turned the electric back on at 10:30am to realize that he was given a four way switch instead of a two way switch. He now has to do the work all over again. One hour later, the person brings him the right switch, "My cameras seen know one coming to bring him anything", he redid the work and was now done at 12:30pm. I received my bill for four hours of work and a miscalculation on the materials of $10. I immediately contacted the company and advised them of the hours and time needed to redo the 4 way switch shouldn't be billed to me and I should be refunded for at least one hour and the additional $10 for the materials. She stated that she would have the manager contact me. I called back on Tuesday and no answer but got a text apologizing for receiving no call. I called Wednesday and got no answer but got the same text. I called Thursday and no answer but got a text stating the manager is busy. I stated that I would contact my bank and dispute the bill until it is resolved. As I am typing my review today, I received a call from manager Matt Wolf stating that he has credited back one hour of $85 and my $10 back to my bank account as of right now. This could've been a five star review if customer service was important and the consumer didn't feel like they were railroaded. I still feel like the electrician ran up the hours for no reason. A previous electrician that I had at my home a month ago replaced eight outlets and switches within the first 90 minutes with time to spare. I'm just lucky that my camera footage was thorough and I could go back and review the entire job. The electrician did great work but customer service from the office was horrific.
