Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much does it cost to have an outlet installed?

If you plan on hiring a professional electrician to install an outlet, expect to pay $75 to $500, or an average of $210. But for an accurate cost estimate, you need to contact a few electrical outlet installers near you.

The light switch and outlet types may impact your cost. The location of the outlet also matters, as the electrician may have to route additional wiring and may not have access to existing wiring. If you need the outlet childproofed, this may also cost more.

Do I need a permit to install GFCI outlets?

Depending on where you live, you likely need a permit to install GFCI outlets. When in doubt, get in contact with your local government, and ask a licensed electrician to perform your electrical work.

Do I need an electrician to add an outlet?

Generally, this is a job best left to a licensed professional. A licensed electrician will be able to install your outlet using the most up-to-date code practices. If you need any permits to perform the install, the electrician should also be able to obtain them for you.

Daren at GESS Electrical Contracting was responsive to questions, thorough in his evaluation of the electrical wiring of our home (above and beyond the parameters of the switch-and-outlet installation project), and friendly. We would definitely hire him again for any future electrical needs.

I received fantastic service from Christian installing my bathroom outlet that was really messed up by someone previously. Christian identified the problem instantly and worked on correcting it. My outlet works perfectly now. I have to buy a new light fixture and have him come back to connect and install it. I will hire him for my other electrical work and also refer him to my clients. Christian was very responsive, punctual, knowledgeable, worked fast and very clean. Highly recommended.

Bryan was hired to install an outlet to existing W/D wiring. When he arrived and analyzed the wiring, he immediately recognized wiring errors done by our previous "electrician". He explained in detail what needed to be done in order for our washer and dryer to operate effectively, safely, according to code, and how long the job would take (1 1/2 - 2 hours). He finished on time, and checked his work to ensure everything was working properly. He also did troubleshooting for an outlet that was not working properly. He fixed the problem, and also installed the power cord to my dryer. Although I hired him for a smaller job with a smaller fee, I think the rate he charged was fair. He even offered to clean afterwards. Bryan is officially our electrician, and I will recommend B&L Fast Wire Electric to my friends and family! I am happy with his work!
