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.

Contact the best electricians near you today to start receiving free estimates for your project.

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.

Fantastic electrician that clearly knew what he was doing. He was quick responding as well as completing the work. He was communicative and helpful in answering questions. We had an electrician come out a few days prior and Richard was able to fix the things the other electrician did wrong! I would highly recommend.

Nice guy. Very knowledgeable. Light fixture/ceiling fan combination works perfectly. Good thing to know in advance, most electricians do not handle the drywall work - so be prepared to handle that separately.

Cliff and his electrician came by to check an electrical issue I was having with my dishwasher. They were on time, super professional, and triple checked that the issue was resolved before leaving! Will definitely be using Cliff and his team again for projects in and outside of our home!

Travis was amazing. Other electricians wanted to charge me over $100 just to come and give me an estimate for a large job and he came right out to give me an estimate. His approach was spot on for what I was looking and his pricing was incredibly reasonable. While others will try to rip you off on supplies, he just hands you the Home Depot receipt. Travis was quick to respond to all my messages and added a few other things that we changed last minute without trying to upcharge at the last minute. He noticed faulty wires that the builder had done and helped fix them for no additional cost. If you need an electrician to do a great, safe, reliable, and punctual job, then Travis is your guy. He won’t rip you off or try to get as much money out of you as possible like other electricians. I will be recommending him to all my friends. For context I had him run wires underground to put 3 outlets and light in shed, 4 outdoor lights, 4 additional outdoor outlets, smart switches and some indoor outlets.

Moorey is THE guy for the job. One of the most honest and sincere people I’ve met during my time in Nashville. I can’t say enough about our experience; professionalism, punctuality, diligence, honest, care, dedication. Moorey is just a great human being, who also happens to be a great electrician. He’s my go-to for anything electrical!!

I am so glad that I found Steve on Thumbtack! He was able to quickly replace the outlet for my dryer, and also helped resolve a few other electrical issues in my home. He was efficient, affordable and a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend Steve, and he will be the first person I call the next time I need an electrician!

I hired Travis to replace light fixtures, move one over and install a new light fixture (including running electrical). A handful of electricians discussed the project with me, visited the property, and are still working on written estimates. While waiting on their estimates, I called Travis, who went to the property, gave me a quote over the phone, and completed the work within a few hours. Travis was quick and easy to work with!

I talked with six electricians, and Troy did not make any changes in his quote as the others did. He handled some unexpected issues for which he did not charge, and I am grateful for that although I told him I'd be happy to pay. Troy is one of the nicest professionals I have yet to use. Thank you, Troy, for your kindness and thoughtfulness. I wish you the very best.

Rick was excellent to work with on every level. He was able to make time for me on the same day that I contacted him. He diagnosed the problem right away (even though it was a bit tricky and confusing), and he figured out a solution and fixed the whole thing in about an hour. His rates are very reasonable, and he was highly professional throughout the process. If I need an electrician in the future, I would call Rick without hesitation.
