Seven Hills Electric gets it. Thought I knew what I needed for this 1913 house, and requested that work. The Seven Hills estimator asked to visit first, to learn about me, my home, and my current needs. Before taking a note about fixtures, volts, and amps. Further, the Techs didn’t just follow their instructions. They talked and listened in my language, to serve me, not their work order. That’s typically hard work for technical experts. They found problems and options I’d never consider. Example is the after-pic here. Previous owners had sketchy wiring to and through the detached garage. One step up from a 100’ cheap extension cord. That was a much bigger deal than the brighter lights and convenient receptacles I’d requested. One of my family could’ve been injured or worse. In my case, the expected $1,000 turned into $2,000, and I couldn’t be happier. My friend had the same experience and opposite price effect. He got a better solution than his $2k request, for only $1K. That’s good business, all the way around.See more

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.

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. 

Does an electrician need to enter my home?

Whether an electrician needs to enter your home depends on the type of work that needs to be completed. Any work on receptacles, lights and more located on the inside or outside of your house will likely require an electrician to enter your home.

Ask electricians in your area to perform a video consultation instead of a traditional walk-through to assess the project. During the consultation, they should be able to tell you if they’ll need to enter your home or not.
