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.

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.

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.

Reviews for Richardson electrical outlet installers
Launa W.
We had Jay with HandyNauts do several electrical repairs and install over a period of a few weeks. He was extremely reasonable, professional, meticulous, punctual and responsive. His scope included new outlets and replacement outlets, j box installs for electric mirrors, relocating pendants in ceiling, hanging outdoor fans, installing new indoor bath fan, and new can lights. This is an old house and not always easy to wire. He also made sure that wires were grounded since he discovered they previously weren't. I highly recommend!

This is guy did a great job on the outlets installation! He knew exactly what he was doing and did it in a very timely manner. Plus he was a very nice person and very polite! He is on my speed dial now for any electrical work I need to have done.

He provided very reasonable prices for 2 outdoor electrical outlets installed. He was able to supply the materials minus the GFCI plugs. I have an older home so the wiring and electrical can be a bit confusing. Despite running into issues, he kept in communication with me and made return visits to ensure that he got the job completed. He stayed firm to the initial price he quoted me and I was pleased with his work!

John came to my house to give me a quote and said he could do the work same day. His price is very reasonable and he was very punctual. He got the job done quickly and exactly what I wanted. I had 2 outlets installed in my garage. I would highly recommend him for your electrical needs and will definitely use him again!
