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.

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.

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.

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.

Awful customer service, I had to contact R&F several times. First i was told the electrician had an emergency and could not make it on the first day, the second day I called and R&F could not tell me if the electrician would even show up. On the last call i was told he could not make it, so after three days of this process I have to find another electrician. Terrible way to run a business.

I had an emergency, and then I didn’t...because Smithryght responded immediately, completed the work with great speed and efficiency and did so at a surprisingly reasonable price. I will recommend Smithryght to anyone that needs an electrician.

The electrician was very courteous and professional. He responded quickly,and he arrived on time. He took his time and explained what the problem was before he fixed it. He did not go over the price quoted.Excellent worker.

Replaced outlet as promised and came on short notice. There was some confusion during the initial call with a tenant not the electrician's fault, it was worked out. The work was done professionally, but it was not inexpensive. I reccomend having a few projects to justify the initial call cost.

If I need an electrician again I will definitely contact Joshua. He arrived on time and ready to work. He ran into a few issues with old wiring but he figured out the problem and was able to work through it. Joshua was also very responsive and his pricing was reasonable.

Needed an electrician for a breaker that kept tripping out. Richard was there the next day on time and ready to go. He’s very professional and very knowledgeable about his craft. He walked me through everything he was doing and made it easy to understand. Would definitely hire him again for future needs.

Excellent service, fair pricing. Courteous, knowledgeable professional, who arrived on time, cleaned up after, and provided lots of information. Installed a remote controlled ceiling fan. Went to Home Depot with me to find a better fan since the first one was malfunctioning. Will definitely use again. Keanu is a one of a kind electrician!!!

Jamaine, the electrician that came to my home to help me get my electricity up & running again was very professional & knowledgeable. He installed a brand new fuse box with all new circuit breakers in a timely fashion. After the work was done Jamaine noticed an irregularity in my service with Con Edison, he was able to contact Con Edison and conversed with their technicians to get my service at a 100%.

I give 10 stars if it allowed. But Thumbtack only allows 5 stars. Jac was very Professional, prompt, polite, smart. I hired Jac from Virginia to take care of my mom's ceiling fan issue in New York. Jac took care of my mom as if I was there with him. He installed a new ceiling fan and sent me a link video in case she had future problems. I was truly please with his service and I would hire him again for any needs. I will recommend this company to anyone needing an electrician. Thank you Jac for everything.

My family and I recently purchased our first home. The home came with no light switches, only a string switch in the middle of the room which was very inconvenient for us and especially my four-year-old. I reached out to a few electrician on thumbtack and Dave was the only person who came in and asked me if we had an attic. He run the wires through my attic to minimize damage in the wall, which saved us on repair costs. Dave did an excellent job in all 4 rooms, we now have fan control light switches. Dave was very reliable and went above and beyond to get the job done. I would recommend Dave to anyone. See you on our next project🙏🏽

When I contacted Fast Wire Electric, they responded within 24hrs. I had listed the exact job that I needed done and Brian (owner, I believe) emailed me back with price and suggestion of which light dimmers I should purchase. He had obviously read my entire job description request which made me immediately feel like they really were pros. Technicians, Ricky & Lyndon were running a little late and gave me one hour notice that they'd be late. No problem. I appreciated them communicating with me with plenty of notice time. Upon arrival, (exactly when they said they would), it was immediately apparent that these gentlemen were professionals. They wore shoe covers before entering my apartment. They had all of their equipment with them (another person I had contacted had asked me if I had a ladder for him....), lay down their plastic to protect my wooden floor, were courteous, kind and got straight to work. My fans were in boxes. No problem. They opened the boxes, took everything out, figured it all out and just to add more to their already agreeable demeanor, they had a great attitude and sense of humor! There was not one sideways glance or comment of discontentment or negativity. After perfectly installing my living room ceiling fan which was obviously too small for my space, they -- without skipping a beat --- agreed to take it back down and install it in my bedroom instead. No fuss. No problem and no extra charge. I had 4 dimmers to install. One of my light switches was old and a dimmer could not be installed. "No problem", Lyndon says. He told me what I needed to get to make it work and just put it back together. They did that for another fixture in the kitchen that needed a dimmer and answered all of my questions regarding the right fixture to purchase. Ricky figured out how to hang my precious mosaic fixture with ease. They were extremely pleasant and made me feel very safe, having 2 men in my apartment while alone. This is a big deal for us women who have to hire outside assistance when we are on our own. Never underestimate the power of courtesy, politeness and gentlemanly manners. I need to purchase another fan & fixture and as soon as that is done, I will be requesting for this dynamic duo to return. Could not be more pleased. If you are reading this, do not waste your time anywhere else. For top notch, reasonably priced, #1 rated electricians and just really efficient and professional guys, Fast Wire Electric is the only option. I will recommend them to everyone as much and as often as I can. Thank you, Fast Wire Electric!
