Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.

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.

The electrician, Chris I met with is very honest, friendly and professional. He gave me a great price to do all the electrical work I needed done. He also returned my deposit to me when I decided not to do the project. I would recommend him to friends and family and, of course, I would call him again should I need an electrician in the future!

Rick is an excellent electrician. I will hire him again in a heartbeat. If you are looking for a guy who knows his stuff, this is your guy. He completed re-wiring work along with other projects in my home. The price was fair and he came ready to work.

Rick replaced some wiring in attic and installed outlets in crawlspace - two of the most uncomfortable places to work in a house! He showed up on time, did the work proficiently, and did not waste any time. Rick is friendly and courteous and I wouldn't hesitate to call him again for any electrician needs.

Nicholas did a excellent job today of fixing three external outlets, replacing a GFCI, installing a new power outlet for the bidet and fixing two switches that had flickering issues. I have few more electrical projects and will be definitely call him in a week. Glad I found a good electrician who is reliable.

Rick showed up early, finished quickly, and did an amazing job! We had a number of different things in our new house that need to be completed by an electrician and Rick didn’t outstanding job. He was very good about communicating with me throughout the entire process and delivered everything he said he would. I highly recommend Rick for any electrical needs!

Works hard to ensure project is done right. Fair price. I would gladly pay more for the service I received. Will not try to rip you off or convince you to up grade anything, and doesn’t talk down to you like some other professionals I have dealt with. Kevin is genuinely honest and helpful. Would not consider hiring any other electrician for my next project.

Jimmy is fabulous— he’s been here 3 times as we’re getting settled in our new home and he’s done everything from new fixtures to yard lighting, to general electrical around the house and has always been here when he said, charges a fair price, and always makes sure it’s right. He even helped me find the right fixture we needed on the computer. He’s our permanent Electrician 😊. Plus he’s kind and polite.

Jimmy and Remington did great work and are super nice to be around. They stayed until the job was done working late into the evening to accommodate our schedule ( my wife is pregnant and we are trying to get lots of jobs done before baby comes). They accepted a difficult job when others declined ( much appreciated). Jimmy was up front about how he charges the job and there were no surprises at the end. These guys are awesome and I would recommend them to anyone needing an electrician. Lastly, Jimmy will give you tips on how to smoke meats if you ask him.

Wow!!!! Brandon is a must hire for all electrical projects! He was punctual, arrived exactly on time, he is very knowledgeable and professional about his work! Very honest man (gave me a fair price) and felt very good about my decision with hiring him (his company) to do the work! He installed an electric outlet behind my TV, above my fireplace successfully! (I had two other electricians come out and they were not able to do it) but Brandon made the impossible… POSSIBLE! :) and he didn’t take long at all! He is fast, efficient and cleaned the mess left behind. I am happy with my service and I will definitely call Brandon for future services!! I would give 10 stars to MBK Electric!!! ⭐️
