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.

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.

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.

John was fantastic! We needed to install a 240V outlet and he smoothly completed the installation in under an hour. Equally importantly, he was super responsive, very professional and friendly, and offered a great deal for his services. We'll be using John for future electrical needs, and I recommend that you do as well!

I am new to thumbtack and deceided to get estimates. One was from Jesse who was somewhat new too. I was very grateful to have found a professional, prompt, and knowledgeable person via Thumbtack. He discussed my request and provided options as we have an older home. We had a new outlet installed. Very happy with his work. Look forward to calling him for other home electrical work. Good luck Jesse on future projects!
