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.

Contact the best electricians near you today to start receiving free estimates for your project.

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.

A quick and friendly response. Thanks to Kaleb's 25 years of experience as an electrician the three repairs he helped me with were quick and simple. I am so grateful for his help!

The electrician was not very personable. He came in, did the work, sent the invoice, and left. I kind of like for professionals to interact with their customers a little more, but that does not take away the good work he did.

Two electricians arrived within 2 hours. Quoted a price and kept the quote. Both workers were nicely dressed and clean. I was shown the problem, given the solution, and the answer was straight-forward. Highly recommended.

I had a great experience with Sully's. Tommy was great, answered my questions with honesty, and worked for a fair price. I called a lot of electricians, and none of them were as responsive and painless to deal with as Sully's. Highly recommended.

RJ with Prestige Electric was prompt, courteous, and professional. He was able to handle our electrical repairs and helped answer all of my questions, even providing an estimate to repair some work done by other electricians before him.

McClure Electrical was very responsive to my request for a quote and also to scheduling my work to be done. The electrician fixed my issue and checked additional items and offered suggestions of things that need to be corrected and left me a quote for that. He was very personable.

Jacob is an ultra professional. Where other electricians didn't understand what I was requesting he had a kit ready to go. Plus he assembled from scratch a power cord I needed. Highly recommended! He is expensive but good.

Fixed my issue with minimal effort. Took no time at all. It didn't work at first but when I put out a message the electrician came back immediately and made sure I was good. I'd hire again and you should too.

Prior to contacting A Rollin, i had bids from other electricians and their pricing was ridiculous for the work that needed to be done. I wish i had contacted Anthony for my panel upgrade. I will definitely keep hiring him for all my electrical works.

I received an email response within the hour of making my Thumbtack inquiry for an electrician from Sure-Fire Contracting Inc. An appointment was scheduled and the project was expanded to include plumping. They arrived and completed the work timely, professionally and as proposed. I would not hesitate recommending them. Thanks again Jason and Kelly!

Justin and his crew did a phenomenal job installing lights and two fans in our home. After poor experiences with other electricians and handymen, we would jump at the chance to work with Justin again. He even showed up ten minutes early for the job — almost unheard of in this industry. Thanks Justin!

I had a very good experience with this electrician! I was able to get a quote over the phone and get someone out to my house the next day! Alex came to the house on time and started working right away. He was very curtious and did a great job! I will call them in the future for electrical projects!

Andy is my go to electrician and the only person I call for my electrical needs. Andy will get the job done right the first time and for a price that wont bust your budget. I had a job that would have taken anyone else 3 days and Andy was able to get it done in one and it came out even better than I imagined.

Andy was incredibly helpful, professional, and communicative throughout the process of installing multiple new light fixtures throughout my house. It’s an old home, so he ran into a few odd wiring issues, but handled them in stride while explaining to me what the issues were and how he would resolve them. He’s an incredibly knowledgeable electrician, with additional experience in overall home renovation, and would be a huge value add to any project you’re facing.

I don’t usually write reviews, but I was so impressed that I’m making the time. I hit the jackpot!!! Alfonso and Rafael are EXCEPTIONAL! They responded back quickly and were able to get the work done the next day. They were prompt, professional and the work quality absolutely fantastic. They took the time to explain things to me and were clear and transparent about costs. They even cleaned up when they were done! A lot of contractors leave the mess to you. They are definitely my new electricians. I highly recommend them!

I had an outlet and LED lights installed at a coffee bar. During the estimate, they informed me that it should have an outlet already per the electric code and to contact the builder. They said this knowing full well that the builder would choose their own electrician for the work, and McClure wouldn’t be paid in that situation. It shows great integrity. The builder gave me the run-around, so I ended up asking McClure to do it. Very friendly, worked fast, fair priced. They care about their work quality and it shows in the end result. Highly recommend going with them.
