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.

JC was great, he took the time to make can lights even and centered and worked quickly and efficiently. He also went out of his way to make sure the light switch was connected that was most convenient for me. He was also able to do a quick other side project for me at the same time. Great job, go to electrician.

I can’t say enough good things about Atlanta. Demetrius was prompt, friendly, knowledgeable and very understanding. He arrived on time and worked quickly. I was unhappy with a couple of decisions I’d made, after having time to think about it. He understood and went back and re-did the work right away and was happy to do so. I’m so pleased with this company and their work ethic. I feel like we’ve found an electrician we can depend on for a long time to come and would recommend them to anyone. Thank you!

Qasemi is the best guy out in DFW area both professionally and personally. No doubt about him. August, Sunday 1 PM, our gas station business goes in dark. Gas pumps, registers, ac stopped all of sudden. I started calling different electric companies that advertised as 24x7 service providers. Unfortunately most of the big reputed chain electric companies were not able to send any electrician or were quoting sky high prices. Luckily, Qasemi responded within 5 mins of placing request in thumbtack. He showed up well before estimated time and understood the complicated circuitry and problem in no time. He fixed circuit breaker wiring that restarted gas pumps , fixed ice maker(220v) voltage, cooler, ac power supplies in no time. He is a life saver for our business. I am going to save his contact. Don't think twice guys, save his number in your cell phone , you will be assured !! Good luck.

Quoted me a standard price for running wire and installing outlet where none existed prior. I thought the price was fair that they quoted and was ready to hire them, however they prefer to view the job before they confirm the quote, which is certainly understandable. They gave me a window of 12-2pm to come by to quote and possibly do the job itself. Didn't receive a call confirming the appointment so after 1pm I called to confirm they were still coming. Unfortunately they said they would have to reschedule, but were very apologetic at the time of the call. The thumbtack project manager reached out to me to apologize with a sincere apology as well. I had a 2nd electrician come out outside of thumbtack who I had as a back up quote later that evening. Prices were higher than this contractor but had to have this installed ASAP so I decided to hire the other gentleman who came to the appointment. I have a feeling Torque gets a lot of business and perhaps were too busy to even give me notification that they weren't coming. I would probably give them another shot in the future if I had something that wasn't as urgent for the pricing alone.
