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.

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.

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.

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.

Do electricians offer remote or virtual services?

While electrical work is typically performed in person, you may come across some electrician profiles that state the pro is offering remote services. If you do, contact local electricians to discuss your particular project and what type of remote services they may offer.

The electrician who came out was super nice and professional. The reason we didn’t use them was because of price, it was shockingly high. $568 for TWO cans on our main level. More than double the price of any electrician I’ve talked to.

Jason is a great guy and a fantastic electrician. He explains in detail the best options, cost and how he could do the work you want done. His price is very fair and his suggestions are golden. We feel fortunate to have met Jason through thumbtack after having some negative experiences with electricians, but having met Jason I would not hire anyone else for any electrical work, and I’d recommend him to anyone without hesitation. If you hire Jason you won’t be disappointed !

David is simply phenomenal. He is always professional and easy to work with. He is happy to explain anything we need. Our condo is very old and he ran into some issues and spent longer then he would of liked (3 hours). However, he didn't try to use that to charge us more. We understood and we wanted to pay more because he didn't complain or rush our project even with it being challenging. We know he's very busy because a good electrician is hard to find in this area, so we appreciate the neighborly personal touch. As long distance landlords we are happy we finally found a reliable electrician with great communication skills. We really lucked out finding David. We enjoyed working with him so much, I kinda wish I had more for him to do! He is One (darn) Good Electrician!

Uriel is by far the best electrician I've ever worked with. We've had two other electricians come out. One wanted a lot of money to redo the entire house. The other just didn't seem to know their stuff. Uriel not only knew what he was talking about, but he was able to explain it to me so I understood. This really helped decide on the best solution for my home. We decided on a small simple project that was very affordable, thousands less than the other guy, and it will serve our purposes well. Very excited to have found him.

Stewart came out to diagnose an issue I have with an oven not getting power. He walked me through his tests and showed me the multimeter readings along the way. Won’t hesitate to call again next time I need an electrician.

Zach was a great electrician and have recommended him to several family members and friends. He was able to install lighting in a room that had never had electrical. Additionally, he was able to move a uncentered lighting fixture, then replaced with a new lighting fixture. He was very professional and knowledgeable. One thing I would note, is if there are holes/construction created by installing new electrical it's up to you to finish the patch work. This is totally normal for electricians, just as a first time user was something I was unaware of. He did patch really hard to repair holes and was very helpful. HIGHLY RECOMMEND. --Anne

Mike is an experienced professional electrician who takes the time to carefully review a project request, ask reflective questions to be sure he understands your situation, and then provides great insights throughout the project to ensure you are satisfied. He installed some cans for us, even completed some touch-up texturing, and thoughtfully cared for our space cleaning up and ensuring each day we were satisfied with his work and how he left our home. Thank you, Mike! We look forward to having your help again. Electricians just aren’t a dime a dozen and we feel lucky we’ve met you.
I had an electrician come to install new lights…and he was going to come back to install more…when I couldn’t reach him I contacted JAG. I am so so GRATEFUL that JAG came and installed the new lights. He was very fast, very professional, and his price made me happy as well. I have attached the other electricians work and then JAGS. I can’t believe I actually thought the dry wall HAD to be ruined until I saw the beautiful way JAG did the work. We are using them for other electrical work now. FABULOUS JOB!
