Q & A

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.

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.

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

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.

Ally is a great electrician to work with. He responds super quickly and address the issue efficiently. Thanks Ally! I will go for you for any electrical issues happening around my house in the future.

The only electrician (several bid requested through other apps/services) to offer a estimate/range. All others needed more information or just wanted to book an appointment with a “estimate fee” applicable to work completed. Work completed was excellent, fast and his (30 minute) window of arrival was a bonus. Would recommend to others. Considering him for additional/bigger project - quick, fair estimates in the spot too, which was refreshing these days.

Congratulations, you've found one of the best electricians in the PNW! Denny not only gave me a reasonable quote within hours of contacting him, he was able to pickup materials and get started on the project the same day after finishing work at another site. Extremely knowledgeable, Denny answered all my questions, made valuable suggestions, and informed me about other potential issues in my house. The difficult project was finished on time and it looks great! I'll definitely be hiring him again and was happy to have found him on Thumbtack.

Eduardo is very professional and nice! We had a sudden partial power outage around 9pm. The AC, refrigerator, some outlets and lightenings weren’t working (only our house had this issue, not the neighbors). We desperately contacted some electricians, but he is the most responsive. He called us, explained some possible reasons and gave suggestions for the next steps. It turned out to be utility issues, and thanks to him, we got some help during the midnight. Though we didn’t use Eduardo’s service, we will definitely reach out if we need in the future.

We had multiple problems with this company, the largest being that they left us without power to our kitchen for over 12 hours and said it was likely our fault, but when they sent a tech out the following day the tech quickly discovered the electrician had tripped a switch while installing new electrical in our house. B&G never apologized up front for the mistake, and instead insisted it was probably something faulty with our electrical or something we did. This was only 1 of many problems we had. In the end, they offered us the senior discount rate of 10% off after I asked if they would do anything for causing us to not have power in our kitchen for over 12 hours. I hired this company because of good Thumbtack reviews, but never again. Also, the work they did failed the city permit inspection the first time around, which astonishes me that they didn't know what the permit requirements were.

I was really impressed with the overall experience of this company. I had several electricians no show or cancel and two that never actually gave me an estimate after coming to my house. I used thumbtack to get a estimate and they responded to me quickly and was able to come and give me a free estimate the next day. As promised I had the quote an hour later and was able to schedule the work for the following Saturday. He came on time worked very hard on our old house and did everything with precision and professionalism. He was kind, considerate and the quote was actually a bit less when he finished. He pointed out and explained everything and gave us options for things that he had to do a bit differently since our house is much older. I had an emailed receipt before he even pulled out of the driveway. I would definitely use them again in the future and would recommend him to anyone, he is reasonable, prompt and really knows what he is doing!
