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.

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.

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.

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.

Are there ways to be safe if I hire an electrician when social distancing?

If you decide to hire an electrician, choose virtual platforms for consultations like calling or video chats. Avoid any physical contact with the electrician, wave instead of shaking hands, stay 6 feet away, sanitize shared surfaces and use digital payment apps instead of cash.

Does an electrician need to enter my home?

Whether an electrician needs to enter your home depends on the type of work that needs to be completed. Any work on receptacles, lights and more located on the inside or outside of your house will likely require an electrician to enter your home.

Ask electricians in your area to perform a video consultation instead of a traditional walk-through to assess the project. During the consultation, they should be able to tell you if they’ll need to enter your home or not.

Lindley Stanton did a fantastic job for me and was reasonably priced. I had several electrical issues at my house that other electricians couldn't seem to solve. In just a few hours Lindley, assisted by his competent wife, fixed them all. I highly recommend them!

Mr. Lobanov was courteous, knowledgeable, and proficient. He contacted me by text to give me options and costs (parts and labor) for each option so that there would be no surprises at the end. He was punctual and completed the project in minimal time. I recommend Mr. Lobanov highly to anyone in need of an electrician.

Roman from Pro-Line Electric is a top-rate electrician. He has upgraded our heating vents and light fixtures. He installed approximately twenty lighting cans throughout our home, which brighten the central work spaces in our kitchen and den; the directional can lights he installed in sections along the margins of our 11’ LR and DR ceilings successfully illuminate framed art work along that had hardly been visible , along works quickly and efficiently. He has excellent leadership skills. The quality of his lighting installations has been truly outstanding. I have found him to be entirely trustworthy, responsible, dependable, and responsive. I have recommended him to

I decided to request Zeev for my attic fan installation. Based on the strong rating of this electrician I decided to hire him. Zeev was on time (actually 5 minutes early), had all of his tools in hand and came ready to work. From talking to Zeev I was asking questions and he had the knowledge and experience to explain everything about how attic fans work and the types of things that generally go out. While Zeev was working solo, I trusted him being alone in my house while I kept working on other projects. Zeev explained exactly what went out from my fan and he replaced the fan as required without hesitation or complaints. Mind you, it was over 90 in the attic while he was working. After the job was completed, I asked about future electrical jobs and have no doubt he could help me in the future. I strongly recommend hiring Zeev and clearly his rating speaks for himself.

This is the person who you could get the service for all around skills, expertises at any of your projects. My previous home project needed different expertises involvements. I hired Oscar as electrician in thinking that will hire other pros as needed, once he is done his part. But I did not have to worry about anything else or getting any other services to get my project beautifully done. He took time and properly complete installing my sink, faucet, garbage disposal and related plumbing work in the kitchen, also he found and fix my leaking dishwasher, actually we did not noticed it at that moment. My family really happy with his all works, done in my house and we all felt that we hired the right person. Our high concerns were quality of works, friendlier service; always respects clients' needs and wishes and especially perfect completeness on all works. Even though his fee is little higher than others, but no doubt, it is really worth!! We will exactly get this service again!!!
