Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much does it cost to have an outlet installed?

If you plan on hiring a professional electrician to install an outlet, expect to pay $75 to $500, or an average of $210. But for an accurate cost estimate, you need to contact a few electrical outlet installers near you.

The light switch and outlet types may impact your cost. The location of the outlet also matters, as the electrician may have to route additional wiring and may not have access to existing wiring. If you need the outlet childproofed, this may also cost more.

Read our cost guide, “How much do switch and outlet installation cost?

Do I need an electrician to add an outlet?

Generally, this is a job best left to a licensed professional. A licensed electrician will be able to install your outlet using the most up-to-date code practices. If you need any permits to perform the install, the electrician should also be able to obtain them for you.

Do I need a permit to install GFCI outlets?

Depending on where you live, you likely need a permit to install GFCI outlets. When in doubt, get in contact with your local government, and ask a licensed electrician to perform your electrical work.

Nilson was very pleasant to work with. He showed up on time, installed two outlets for me and a light fixture. The professionalism and work quality was top notch. I will definitely be using Bull Electricity in the future for all of my electrical work. Thank you!

I contacted Erick Gonzalez on yesterday and inquired about having an outlet installed and another outlet repaired. He told me he would arrive at 6:00pm today and once he arrived, he asked me to identify both locations and he began troubleshooting. The outlet that needed repair was never wired correctly when the house was built, he identified the problem, showed me the issue and resolved it. He then installed a new outlet. All of this was done in under 30 minutes and very professionally. I highly recommend Erick Gonzalez for your electrical needs.

Erick installed an electric outlet for my mother. He kept me in the loop on what's going on and his price was very reasonable and quality of work was excellent. I would definitely work with him again for any future project.

I needed a new outdoor outlet installed for my electric vehicle. Others quoted crazy prices and didn’t even want to take on the challenge of routing through the wall to the outside of the house. Lui is VERY responsive and messaged me throughout the process, and he took care of the installation ‘the hard way’ and charged less than others. I’ll be coming to him for any future electrical work, no doubt.

Mr. Cassas was excellent at what he did do...installing the electrical outlets and GFCIs. But according to him, I need a plumber to install the recessed box for the fridge filter. I thought I made that clear in my request, but maybe not. In any case, I will be looking for a plumber to install the ice filter recess box. I will be using Mr. Cassas for my home on future projects.

Salvatore is very knowledgeable about electrical work. He helped me fix some dead outlets and install new outlets where I needed them, as well as diagnosing some other electrical issues I was having. Once he figures out the issue he does a very thorough job in explaining what's going on, why it's happening, and the solutions to fix it. The work he did was very clean and professional with a very fair price. He stands by his work and I will be definitely using him in the future.

This was my first time working with Erick and he did an excellent job! He installed several smart switches/dimmers and added an outlet to a closet. Erick was professional, clearly experienced, very neat, and responsive. I’ve already recommended him to my neighbors and would recommend him to anyone needing electrical work.

Mark came to install an electrical outlet by the deck and I was very satisfied with the work he performed. He arrived at the time we agreed on. Very clean, neat, professional work and he has a great attitude also very knowledgeable about his trade. The outlet is already being put to use and saves me the time of having to run an extension cord to the area where I set the tv up for sporting events. I would definitely recommend him to family and friends.

Great job! Real professional work at an affordable price. Called him in twice to do electrical work for me. Installed new outlet in closet. Installed new ceiling light fixture from scratch in living room and replaced 3 additional ceiling light fixtures in other rooms. Patched everything up and helped me re-label circuit breaker box too. Thanks a lot!

Jaun installed two 240V 50amp outlets in my garage. He was professional and responsive. He offered a competitive bid, explained how he came up with the cost, and patiently worked with me to figure out the setup I needed to meet my charging demands. My electrical box was about 100 feet from my garage. He was able to find a way to thread the wire under my house to minimize the amount of yard he had to dig through. As a result the final product left a minimal impact on the yard, looks great, and works as advertised! I know of folks who have had these types of installations who ended up with an outlet that does not max out the charging capability of the tesla charging cable. Juan made sure that the entire system was capable of handling the maximum load. Bottom line, if you are looking for electrical work, especially for placement of a tesla charger or high voltage outlet, I would highly recommend Juan.

I reached out to a few different people for a quote on an electrical GFCI outlet for outdoor landscape lighting. Edgar was very quick to respond to my quote request. Most people would not come out after 5:00 but that’s when I was available. Edgar came that night at 5:30pm to take a look at my project. Gave me a great price for installing two outlets. Was very punctual and polite. Did his job quickly and efficiently and made sure to clean up after himself. Will DEFINITELY be hiring him again!

FYI Electrical responded my inquiry quickly, gave a reasonable estimate price and sent technician Mr. Walid to my house on the same day. Mr. Walid is professional and friendly. He communicated well with me before starting the job. He installed a new range stove outlet and corrected it's location so the range stove can be properly pushed back against the wall. I'm glad that I called them! ^_^

I needed a NEMA 6-60 outlet installed in my garage not far from my breaker box. Ernest was great at communicating before he job, showed up on time, and explained each step of what he was doing. He gave a fair price, when everyone else on here was trying to overcharge. I will be recommending Ernest to my friends, and will call him first for any future electrical needs I have.

Damon was promptly responsive from the first time contacting him. He was very professional & helped explain the various options to install the car charger outlet in our garage. He did high quality work, cleaned up after he was through, & made sure I understood everything. All this, & still at a fraction of the price being offered by the “concierge” service being offered at the dealership. I would not hesitate to hire him again for any electrical work!

I found electrical services on the thumbtack website while in need for a new outlet to be installed in my garage. Throughout this process, I have been contacted by multiple electricians for quotes and estimates. However, ONLY Rolando met my standards in every single category. Out of all the people I spoke to, Rolando, from electrical services, was hands down the most professional and knowledgeable electrician I've ever spoken with. Rolando found opportunity in his busy schedule to make a trip for the installation services and did exactly as we arranged at exactly the right time. I could tell when watching him work that he is absolutely a Master in his craft and loves working with people and prides himself on integrity. Everything we discussed and planned over the phone was completed with absolute perfection. The price was fair and of excellent value when compared to others. I rarely have time to write a review online and put my name behind it such as this one. But, Rolando deserves this and I wish him all the best and success with his business. He's courteous, professional, honest and highly skilled in what he does. As long as Rolando is doing electrical work, my family, friends and I will be customers of his for the rest of my life. Best wishes and many thanks to you Rolando, you deserve 10 Stars! Dr Steven C

Erick did an amazing job in our house by helping us mount a TV on top of our fireplace, added a new electrical outlet (behind the TV to help hide cables), and added new candlelight (plugs a dimmer switch) to out dark living room area. He also added a new light fixture outside in our backyard that I had difficulties installing (which he did in less than 5 min). He showed up in time and came well prepared to do the job right. He was very professional and approachable. He showed me what he was doing, explained me the how and what of things, and maintained great communication all throughout the process. I would use Erick’s help over and over again and I’ll highly recommend him.
