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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Can I use digital payments to pay for electrical and wiring repair?

These days, many electricians will accept digital payments for electrical work and wiring repair instead of traditional cash or check. The COVID-19 pandemic has helped speed up the adoption of platforms like PayPal, Zelle, Square Cash, Venmo, Google Pay and others as a means of complying with social distancing guidelines.

As you search for electricians online, ask whether they’ll accept digital payment and set up a strategy for staying safe.

The work got done. That's about all I can say. It was delayed as the first electrician claimed he was only present for an estimate, not the actual work. (Not accurate). And his visit didn't result in an estimate being shared with me. Second electrician completed the work.

Our fireplace didn’t work so we called an electrician to see if it was an electrical issue. The owner Ralph mentioned there was a $175 inspection fee which I agreed to. Once the electrician come he said it wasn’t an electrical issue and indeed was a bad ignitor so he would order the part. The owner and him were on the phone and the electrician explained the situation. I overheard the owner repeatedly make sure he received my $175. Fast forward two months and the electrician gave me a very long explanation of why he hasn’t received the part. We hired a fireplace expert and he finished the day he came for inspection. He also didn’t charge me an inspection fee. If you guys were honest from the getgo, we could’ve actually enjoyed our fireplace the entire winter. Be honest.

We needed to change the location of 2 kitchen pendant lights and add one more at the kitchen island. We looked in Thumbtack and found Jack and very happy with our decision to choose him as electrician. He came over on time, did all the works as we asked, answered all questions we have and with very reasonable price. I highly recommend him if you need an electrician.

I found my new electrician! We had an outlet that was getting warm so I needed it replaced. Jose ended up spending additional time on the outlet because he discovered some moisture in the area but still only charged me what he quoted. He is very knowledgeable and professional. This is the first time I tipped an electrician! I just felt he deserved it. I will be recommending Jose to all my friends!

When most other electricians were booked 2-3 weeks out, North Pacific Mechanical was able to squeeze me in the next day for a small repair when they had one of their guys in the area.

Roman went above and beyond for me. It is hard to find an electrician in such short time, much less one who does a great job the first time. Easy to communicate with, friendly and professional. I highly recommend Roman and Pro Line Electric.

Jean was able to swiftly troubleshoot a wiring problem with two of my outlets. Jean was kind and took the time to explain exactly what was happening and more importantly why it was happening. I highly encourage you to book Jean for your future electrician needs.
