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.

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.

Very Professional and Knowledgeable of all types of electrical issues. After having two electricians incorrectly identify my electrical issue, Dwight properly identified my problem and fixed it the same day. I thank God for his honesty and know how. I will be using his services again. For a great electrician please try Dwight.

I had a outside electrical box reattached to my home. Mr. Cox was able to complete the job in a timely manner. The Electrician and helper were very dedicated to do the job no matter what. The team came and even worked in the rain, that is dedicating at its best. The job was well done at a fair price. I would recommend Precision Painting Company. Thanks and God Bless!

I was in need of someone to switch out an outdated outlet for me on short notice and Hosea was able to get the job done. I reached out to him on a Saturday and he was able to get to me the same day. He was very punctual and great about educating me on what he was doing and why it was necessary. Overall, I’m very pleased with his work and would definitely recommend him to those in need of a licensed electrician

I had them add a spa shutoff that my previously hired electrician neglected to install. They were able to quickly and efficiently remove incorrect wiring, install the necessary parts, and rewire the spa. I wish i had hired them originally for the entire job but will definitely be using them again if i need something done. I felt their pricing was very fair and was grateful at how quickly they were able to get to me!

The electrician arrived on time and was very friendly. He replaced a breaker, replaced the outlet switch that controlled power to my garbage disposal, removed and replaced the the light assembly over my dining room table, and removed an outdated light assembly in my carport ceiling and replaced it with a motion sensor flood light assembly. I am very satisfied with the work that he did. I plan to contact Freedom Electric again for future electrical projects.

The work quality, professionalism, responsiveness, value, and punctuality were off the chart. Dwight was friendly and got to work as soon as he introduced himself. He listened carefully to what I had to say regarding the problem, then correctly diagnosed what was really wrong. He was very focused and knowledgeable. I now have power where I am supposed to have it and I have working ceiling fans and lights in my den, which I had not had for quite a while. If I have any future electrical projects, he is my electrician of choice. I have already told my friends about him.

DDH done a fantastic job. They was Extremely courteous and they was able to work with me on my hectic timeline due to my schedule. Their Response time was astounding. They had me up and running in just an hour or so which was great. Not many crews make it to my perminate call list but DDH done such a fantastic job at a great price that honestly I do not think anyone else around could have done better. The next job I need done DDH will be the first that I call for sure. DDH will also be the first that I will suggest to anyone that ask me if I know a great Electrician. Not many can say that they not only do such a good job but hassle free as well which is something that I appreciate very much.
