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 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.

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.

It was a pleasure working with William. He did exactly what I needed done (additional light fixture and outlets installed in garage). Quick response time, was able to come over to the house for an overview of the job, quick estimates and completed the job within 2 days of contacting him. William was polite, has great pricing, very satisfied with the work and will be hiring again for future electrical needs.
