I was self-remodeling a two story 115 year old farm house. When I got into the electric of the house I was out of my element. Raiden Electric was recommended from a friend that had work done by them in the past. They were willing to work weeknights an even weekend hours to fit my schedule. They updated my electric to current codes and removed potential fire risks within the fuse box that were missed by a previous electrical inspection before purchasing the home (burn marks in the box). The other great thing they did was recommend tech upgrades to the house while access was available. It was inexpensive to make the upgrades then instead of waiting till we wanted them later. I had a great experience and would highly recommend them; good price, good people, and they do what they say they will.See more

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!!

Perry was able to wire my antique letterpresses (Heidelberg Windmills) after another electrician got in over his head. Perry was wonderful to work with, incredibly friendly and professional, and above all, highly competent! He was easy to reach, communicated with me at all steps along the way, and gave me pricing up front that didn't change as the job progressed. I can't recommend him enough!

Fred was awesome! He was quick to respond when I reached out on Thumbtack and luckily had availability the next day. He arrived on time, quickly diagnosed and fixed my issue. He was even gracious enough to give me a few pointers. His price was reasonable and I’ll definitely call him the next time I need an electrician. Don’t hesitate to use him, you will not regret it.

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.

Fred did an outstanding job. He is very knowledgeable, courteous and professional. We hired him to do a kitchen renovation due to a fire damage which also brought up some unknown electrical issues that needed to be taken care off. F&S Electric gave the best price among a number of other electricians that we contacted for the job and completed the work in less than 3 days. (New main, ground wired, kitchen rewire and new kitchen lights). I will definitely contact them for future projects and will definitely recommend them.

Richard and Tina were absolutely great. Richard is a licensed electrician but as we soon discovered he's a jack of all trades. I posted a need for swapping out 2 prong to 3 prong outlets, new gfci's outdoors, inspecting the outdoor hot tub breaker, inspecting the hot tub motor and to check out some ceiling fans that were malfunctioning. Richard responded and said he would come check everything put before quoting me. All the other respondents wanted money just to come out and check everything. Once he was here, he walked me through all the issues and half of the issues were simple fixes. I casually mentioned how we had a burst pipe in the basement, a cracked storm window and a leaky faucet and he said, "We can take care of that" And so they did. The pricing for all of this was VERY reasonable as well and they were extremely flexible on scheduling. All in all, R&T is our electrician/handyman/woman team from here on out and we will surely keep calling them. We've also recommended them to all of our friends who might need work. PS. We live in an old home in Mt. Lookout.

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.

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.

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.

Scott Denny contacted me almost immediately after my request through Thumbtack. He dispatched William to my house within an hour. William was able to track down my problem, fix it and check a few other things...all within 2 hours. The price quoted was fair and less expensive than another electrician's quote who is located less than a mile from my home. William was outstanding. He was pleasant, knowledgeable, professional and extremely thorough. I highly recommend Denny's Electric and especially the work of his technician William!
