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.

We requested quotes for a circuit breaker that kept tripping on Sunday. I used thumbtack and contacted some local electricians in Georgetown. I did not expect a response until Monday even though I needed the job done immediately. My daughters cannot sleep without a light and football games were at stake. I got three responses from Thumbtack and the local electricians did not even contact me at all. Tomas was the first response from Thumbtack and he had the most reasonable price for diagnosing problems. He was prompt, courteous and explained all the work performed. He was able to fix the tripping breaker the same day and guaranteed his work. We were very pleased with Tomas' work and with Thumbtack for finding us a great electrician.

Install 220 Watt Circuit in the kitchen area of our new office. Robert responded quickly after I utilized Thumbtack in my search for a Georgetown area Electrician. He visited our office to review our requirements and to look at the building after our initial communication before providing me with a no obligation cost estimate shortly thereafter. Most importantly, after I notified him that I had approved his cost estimate, we set an appointment for the necessary work to be performed. Robert and his employee showed-up on time and completed the project in a timely manner including cleaning-up the area where he was working before leaving our office. Robert and his employee were respectful, courteous and professional at all times. I will definitely utilize Carney Electrical Contracting in the future and highly recommend him to others in the Georgetown area needing an experienced Licensed Electrician.

The electrician Robert, from Carney Electrical Contracting LLC rushed right over to make sure there was no fire hazard. He couldn't fix it right then. Wanted to schedule an appointment. But when I told him I was only off today, he said He'd fix it today. And he did. The problem was the plug box in the wall. Robert changed it out. And all is good. If you need any electrical work, I highly recommend them.

After requesting expert fan install on Thumbtack for a replacement of Haiku fan HiiPower Electric responded and said they could do the service. I had multiple texts with Brandon outlining what I needed done (replacement of ALL parts of a defective fan and replacement with ALL new parts of new fan). I read the reviews and Brandon seemed to be well regarded and capable. When I went to schedule the service with Brandon he said he could send someone the next evening and asked if that was ok. I said no, the reviews were for him not anyone else. He stated that he works with a select, small group of licensed electricians and assured me that my job would be done as requested and to Haiku specifications. I hesitantly agreed again restating what EXACTLY I needed done (replacement of ALL parts with the new fan parts). The following evening 2 men came to my home and they were instructed EXACTLY what was needed and required of the job. After about an hour they had the fan up and we’re preparing to leave. I went out and noticed #1 they installed the wrong sized downrod, #2 I reached in the box to find the entire ceiling attachment (which houses the computer for the fan) as well as multiple other pieces of the new fan to be untouched and obviously uninstalled. They told me that they had installed all the new parts... at which point I pointed out the security camera in the corner and said I’d be happy to review the video. They then admitted that they hadn’t replaced the parts as requested. At this point I tried to call Brandon. The call went to voicemail. I asked the other gentleman to leave my property as I could not trust them. They packed up and loaded their truck. In the meantime Brandon called me back and I explained what happened. Then he explains that he really didn’t know the guys working at my house but they were highly recommended...... NOT what I agreed to at all. After getting a qualified Electrician (Precision Electric)to my house he noted that when he took down the fan to replace all the parts that the other guys didn’t even pay enough attention in their crappy attempt of an install to match the color coded blades with the corresponding color on the fan body!! So after being assured that the installers I requested were “experts” at Haiku fan installation and that they would replace a faulty fan with a new one they were found to be totally inept and dishonest. Save yourself the headache and hire an electrician company that will stand behind and guarantee their work. Precision Electric was that for me. I’ve had them reinstall the fan described above and install another 4 Haiku fans in my home.
