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?

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.

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.

Hector is my new electrician! Today he moved an electrical box, installed recessed lighting, and replaced some external outlets that weren’t working and put covers on them. Super friendly, but professional.

Great work! Electrician was very responsive, worked within our schedule and made quick work of the breaker installation for our EV charger setup. Highly recommend. Will work with Controlart Group again in the future.

I am so pleased to have hired The Connect Electric company. The electrician Jorge was polite, professional and mindful of the furniture. Once the work was done he cleaned up by vacuuming the dust from the drywall and asked me if I wanted to test the new outlet. I’m so happy with the outcome.

Adolfo did a great job installing our 2 floodlight cameras. He quoted me a great price and did the work then and there. He was fast and efficient and had electricity wired to my new floodlights in no time! I am recommending him to anybody who is looking for an honest electrician with fair prices!

I will highly recommend Mike. Mike was on time and completed the job with great energy. He put 4 fans for us. There was some electrical issue while putting a fan. Breaker was tripping. Usually other person would have suggested to contact electrician but Mike fixed it himself without giving up. He has to bring the whole fan assembly down and then fixed the wiring to reassemble the fan and connected it back where it was working seamlessly.

Cody was super! He contacted me right away, was mindful of my husband’s need for quiet because he works from home. (Appreciate that so much!) Far more importantly, I don’t know anything about what’s wrong with my electric situation. He figured out a couple hidden issues and fixed them quickly. I highly recommend VP Electric. It’s nice to know “I have an electrician.”

Jeff professionally installed our ceiling fan in what had to be an hour or less. What seemed like a daunting task to us was nothing more than a simple project for him. He was friendly, arrive during the time he scheduled and has all the supplies/tools he needed. Knowing that he was a licensed electrician added more reason why we hired him. Would definitely recommend and will gladly hire again for another electrical project.

Chris was awesome! He was very professional, clearly knows what he’s doing and offered great solutions. His pricing was exceptional...I had gotten quotes from other electricians and had a general idea of cost. Chris’ quotes were spot on and the quality of his work far exceeded what he charged! I added LED pot lights to my very dark kitchen and laundry area as well as a split light switch on the opposite side of the kitchen to operate the kitchen and laundry area separately. In addition, Chris installed a chandelier, centering it over my dining table. I would call him in a heartbeat for any of my electrical needs!

Lendro was great to work with. I had an electric issue that another contractor had left me with and came to Thumbtack to find an electrician to fix the issue as soon as possible. Leandro replied to my request in a very timely manner and arranged to come to my house the same day. He kept constant communication to let me know when he would arrive at my home. Once he was there and I showed him the issue, he evaluated it and made suggestions on how to fix it and once we both agreed on the fix, he went right to work to get it done. His pricing was very fair and his work was excellent. I will most definitely call him again to assist me with other electrical issues and handy work around my home. Thank you very much Leandro.

Cody responded to my thumbtack request within 30 minutes--Wow! I called him and he quoted me a price for the project and we scheduled an appointment on the first call. Cody was on time and was very friendly, professional, & honest. He also cleaned up the light fixtures and made sure everything was working before he left. In early February 2022, he installed 5 light bulbs & a smoked detector in a 20 ft. ceiling, 9 light bulbs in a 15 ft. ceiling, and 10 light bulbs in 10-12 ft. ceilings. I supplied a 17 ft. ladder but he also had the tools to do the job and/or could have rented a ladder. Cody is a 5 star electrician and I will hire him again anytime I need electrical work done in my home!
