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.

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.

After contacting at least three other electricians who never returned my call. I contacted DanTex in which Efren responded within five minutes after receiving my voice mail. Additionally, he arrived at my location within one hour. His electrician(Hector) was very professional and went right to work. After completing the work he cleaned up the entire work area. The installation of the outlets were clean and they work great! I would recommend them for immediate hiring if you are in need of an Awesome Professional and Qualified contractor. Lastly, DanTex Electric is the right choice you need search no further. Charles J

The response was quick and the service was fast. However I was hoping that we were given a chance to buy our own switch instead of having to pay a higher amount for just one on and off switch. Efficient service and very responsive, but in honesty the price was kinda high. The electrician still did an awesome job so far.

After being hesitant to hire an electrician on Thumbtack, we found Chris, read the reviews, and decided to give him a chance. Chris is friendly, professional, honest, and fair. He’ll explain what he’s doing, carry a conversation, and care about what he’s doing rather than be irritated about your questions. I’m glad to have found him and will definitely call him in the future.

I’m very pleased with the work that Chris did at my house. He delivered as promised and went the extra mile to make sure I was completely satisfied with his work. I even hired him to do more than I originally requested work for, and he did it on the spot in a timely manner while delivering great value. If you’re looking for a professional electrician to get some projects done in your home, I would highly recommend hiring Chris.

Due to the numerous positive reviews I read here for Dantex, I thought I was hiring a bonded and insured professional electrician for my father, however I got the opposite. My father ran into numerous issues, such as his dryer not working, constant tripping of circuit breakers, to his HVAC unit not functioning. No electrical current in some outlets. If you want to hire Dantex for a quick and easy job that you can easily DIY by watching YouTube by all means, but when it comes to an intricate or complex job you might want to look elsewhere and do a google search.

My wife's restaurant GG'S kitchen was having electrical problems with the breaker, so we couldn't turn our air-conditioner on. So we called Efrin, who came right away after I had called him. He identified the problem, and took the time to explain what was wrong. Efrin repaired the problem right away, he knows what he's doing, obviously he's a very experienced electrician. He helped save me and my wife alot of money, and did a Great job. I would recommend him to anyone who needs electrical work big or small. Any future electrical problems I have, I know who exactly to call. My family wanted to say, Thank You for the Great Work you did and helping us get back to cooking. 😊
