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.

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.

Do electricians offer remote or virtual services?

While electrical work is typically performed in person, you may come across some electrician profiles that state the pro is offering remote services. If you do, contact local electricians to discuss your particular project and what type of remote services they may offer.

Can’t say enough good things about my experience! Technician was professional, took the time to explain everything he was doing or thinking of doing. Explained cost and other factors to make sure I could make informed decisions. Will never use any electrician other than Wait Electrical Solutions while I am living in this area. Highly recommend for any electrician needs

I had roughed in most of the work and the electricians came in and immediately knew what to do. They worked extremely quickly and were as polite as they could be! Totally sold on using them in the future

Isaiah is a highly professional electrician. He went above and beyond to ensure my light fixtures were correctly installed and fully functional. He responds quickly and is polite. I highly recommend him.

Lee arrived early (after he called to make sure it was ok) and was very personable. He was efficient, knowledgeable and very professional. He also made sure he cleaned up afterwards. Great company and great electrician. Will hire again in the future.

I'm so glad that I found ADR Electric on here for my mom. My mom has bragged about the electrician crew that has came to her house today to fix electrical issues she was having. We will recommend ADR Electric to family & friends.

Contacted Quentin on a Friday to rewire and install nine recessed lights. He quoted the same day and was able to start on Monday. He did an excellent job and the pricing was very reasonable. He’s been an electrician for 10 years and on his own for 2. I highly recommend his service and will definitely use him again.

We're doing a full kitchen remodel and needed an electrician to remove old electrical, wire in new, and just generally make the space new and efficient. The house is about 100 years old and we knew the job might be complex. We got a few assessments from other electricians that fizzled out so I went on Thumbtack not knowing what to expect, but holy moly I think we hit the jackpot with McGuire Electric. Spencer reached out right away, came out for an estimate that day, and had a quote asap w/ his schedule. He was able to do everything we needed in the timeframe he quoted and gave awesome advice along the way. I wish every company was this awesome to work with. They are the best.

I hired Vernon to fix some switches at my new house and to mount a couple tvs...he was on time, extremely professional and very affordable. More importantly though he did an awesome job!! Tv mounts look great and I can definitely say I have found my new electrician...will be calling Vernon for any of my future electrical needs!

Got a lecture on how my electrical system is setup. No work done but a lecture. The only thing missing was a chalk board and a desk. If we would have had that It would have been the School of Electricians in the building and I would of obtained a Certificate of Excellence. If I had more than two thumbs I will give them four thumbs up. Instead I gave them 4 stars (wink).

I had Vernon install a new ceiling fan today. His work is EXCELLENT! I am so happy to have finally found an electrician that I can trust, who does an incredible job and his prices are fantastic. I couldn't be happier. I already have him scheduled to wall mount my TV this week! I highly recommend Vernon. I intend on telling my family members and friends about him - he is THAT good.

My experience with Spencer, the electrician, more than met my expectations. I had previously used the plumbing service, which I highly recommend, and the electrical part of this business did nothing to disappoint. Spencer responded to my Thumbtack posting promptly, and based on pictures sent with a description of the work needed ASAP, sent a preliminary estimate, which was very fair, and came out the next day and completed the work. The work was professional and clean, and he left the space as he found it (probably cleaner). I highly recommend Spencer and McGuire Plumbing and Electrical.

My experience with this company was exceptional from the initial call and beyond! They made me feel like family from the first call I made and spoke with Miss Patty. Lee was a magnificent electrician. He diagnosed my breaker problem that was causing my dryer issue within a matter of minutes. He even spoke to my husband over the phone to explain the issue and how this can happen. Lee also reconnected my appliances to make sure they were working properly before leaving. I will definitely keep their numbers handy. I will recommend them to any and everyone that will listen.

IQ Electrics was extremely responsive. Answering my request almost right away with a price that couldn't be beat. He was very understanding of my questions and requests and was able to schedule a time to come do the work at a time that was convenient for me. His work was great and unlike other electricians I had received a quote from, he wasn't going to rip up my enough wall in order to accomplish the work that I wanted done which helped me alot. I cannot recommend him enough and will definitely be contacting him if I am in need of future work.

Trying to find an electrician sucked. Until I found this guy. Everybody else was unresponsive, quoted me ridiculously high, or had a months long wait. He answered me at 1030 at night. Quoted me the next morning. And took care of the job the next week. Came back twice because I had a couple issues and took care of it. Even told me to use my home warranty to replace the main breaker as it would be cheaper than him doing it. Absolutely recommend to anyone who is looking for a fair, timely, and a good guy for any electrical needs.

I sent my initial work request late on 2/28. Within a couple hours I had a response from McGuire Electric, who was available to come to my house the next day to review the project and provide a quote, all same day. 4 days later they were able to start my project. Incredibly good turnaround time, as I’d expected a couple of weeks to be more likely. The work was not simple, required a lot of demolition and new materials. Spencer arrived on time, did the work in the time estimated, and did excellent work. I will likely never need to call a different electrician again.

Shawn did an exceptional job. He was knowledgeable, professional, prompt, and punctual. I purchased a duplex that had a wiring nightmare, when I looked at my circuit breaker I would get scared. Several electrical outlets and lights just never worked for me. My attic had live electrical wires circling around from previous owner spiting the home into a 2 units. I did not feel safe and my house was a sitting fire waiting to happen. I had an electrician whom I am not going to mention. He looked at it and quoted me around $4500 to get everything back to code, about a week worth of his time. When Shawn came in, he first reassured me that it wasn’t too terrible and offer to fix to fire hazardous wiring before troubleshooting everything else. He worked through a pretty unique electrical situation and he did a great job of explaining my options and helping me find a solution. He was gracious enough and never charged me for extra parts that he had in his van. I have hired several contractors over the years, Shawn was very prompt and would show up on time every day he was there until he got done. Truly a pro. We took before and after pictures of what things looked like before and they are quite remarkable, I am extremely happy with his work. Best of all, Shawn was in my house for 4 days and it cost me less than a third of what the other electrician quoted me I'd absolutely recommend Shawn to friend and family for any electrical work. I will hire Shawn again for any electrical work, definitely.
