Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Contact the best electricians near you today to start receiving free estimates for your project.

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.

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.

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.

Fixed issue at electrical panel when previous electrician used the wrong breakers, so I now have the required 220V at outlets for workshop machines. Even went to Home Depot and got the correct breakers. Very happy

Max does great work. Gave me a total up front estimate based on a brief description and a couple photos. Was here the next day and did a great job. No surprises. He exceeded my expectations. Will be my first choice the next time I need an electrician. You can't go wrong with Max in my opinion.

First experience updating multiple lighting fixtures in my home; (3) ceiling fans and (3) surface mounts. Extremely pleased with this vendor and the communication was seamless from their flexibility in scheduling to the workmanship onsite. Electricians Robert and Paul were courteous, professional and ensured my involvement in every stage of the process. I highly recommend and will hire again.

We just had Nick do a 'heavy-up' on our house, and we couldn't be more pleased -- it was fast, he got everything right the first time, pulled permits, scheduled inspections -- there was literally nothing we had to worry about. This is the way to have electrical work done -- Nick will be 'our electrician' from now on!

The electrician that came out was on time. He explained everything I need to know about my new wired smoke detectors which replaced the old ones. Also had ring doorbell installed. He checked to make sure everything he stalled was working properly . I would definitely recommend. Prices were reasonable.

Expert electrician!!! Max did an outstanding job installing wiring and a ceiling fan in our daughter's room. Very impressed with the use of a camera to run the electrical wiring, which eliminated them cutting an access point in the drywall. Very responsive and explained the process step-by-step. These guys were great and would definitely hire again. If you want the job done right the first time, PLEASE contact Max.

Very professional and solved a tricky electrical situation we were having. We had other electricians inspect and they either couldn't determine the issue or after hours of review said we had to rewire everything in the bathroom. Joey not only found the issue in half the time but he also fixed it for a fair price. We will only use JLS Electrical Services for any future electical needs and we highly recommend him.

We hired Alexander to install outlets in our center island and outside on our deck. We had him come back and install recess lighting and a dimmer switch in our kitchen. While he was here, we asked him to come back in a week to replace the foyer light. Alexander did an awesome job, we’re so happy we hired him. We no longer have too look for an electrician. We referred him to other family members and friends.

If you are looking for a plumber that you can count on, it will be Keith. Needed to install outdoor outlet. Me and my body digged out a 150 feet trench, spend entire day and scheduled electrician visit for the next day at noon. At 11.25 AM next morning I have received call from him that he has family emergency and will not be able to do the job, even though it was suppose to heavily rain next day, and we would have to dig it out all over again. I have called few electricians which also previously responded through Thumbtack, all their quotes were double from standard ones due to "emergency" meaning needed to come and complete it that same day. When I already gave up on the idea of finding someone and not over pay, Keith called me up around 4:45PM and said that he will be able to make it to my house and lay the wire, for reasonable price, and he did finish it when it was already dark outside. And, as it was promised by local weather channel we had very heavy rain the next day. Definitely Recommend.

Mike and his team were amazing from start to finish. I am beyond impressed with the attention to detail and quality of work from this company. I requested a quote on a Sunday afternoon and within minutes had an appointment for Monday morning at 8am. While looking at the light I needed wired and hung I began explaining how some of my overhead lights had quirky switches and they told me that they could fix that too so I made an appointment for the following day. The team arrived on time and hung my light exactly as I wanted. The "quirky" lights proved to be a little more complicated than anticipated and the team had another appointment to get to, so I agreed that they could come back and finish later. The owner, Mike, went out of his way to come later that day and he stayed until well into the evening to finish fixing all of my lights. I even decided that I wanted my pendant light hung a little higher and Mike did not hesitate to take it down and put it where I wanted it. I am so pleased with the work, people and pricing of this company, they were by far the best I have ever had the pleasure of working with. If you are looking for an electrician you do not need to look any further- THESE ARE YOUR PEOPLE! Do yourself a favor and go with Veeris and Peterson Electric. You will be so glad you did. If I ever need anything done again, they will be the first people I call. Thank you Mike and team for a job well done!!!
