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.

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.

Travis was an excellent electrician who was always communicative and did his best to accommodate my schedule needs. I would recommend Element to everyone. Inspection passed without any hitches and even the inspector noted: "It makes it easier when you have a great contractor." I couldn't agree more.

Zenowi arrived on time and stayed well over when he expected to leave this job. It was only some outlets out, so neither of us expected it to take over an hour. He was here for 4 hours and had to call another electrician in to solve the problem, which we discovered was some mis-wiring on some outlets farther up the circuit. Thank you Z!

Chris was amazing from the start to finish with meeting me and being very accommodating to my schedule. He arrived early before I had to leave for work to do the work needed to wire for a hot tub so I wouldn’t have to leave my home unattended. Chris had been great from day one too. He is very knowledgeable. Very fair pricing too! His quote and work was on the spot. I’m very please with the result. My kids are super happy. I would highly recommend Chris to home owner or clients who need an upfront and honest electrician.

Seatown was fantastic to work for. Prior to arriving, the electrician (Blake) gave me a courteous call and the office texted me a picture and small biography of Blake to let me know who to expect as a safety measure. Blake and his team were extremely friendly, professional and knowledgeable about the issue and helped me resolve my electrical problem (breaker tripping). In addition, I had an AC consultation and Davis was similarly friendly, professional and knowledgeable about AC. Seatown also sent me a text of Davis' picture so I knew who to expect. I would highly recommend them to anyone.

Unexpectedly, our kitchen lights and a few nearby outlets suddenly stopped working, which led to our fridge and freezer half thawing before we realized in the early evening that something was wrong. The breaker switches weren’t flipped, and re-flipping did not fix the problem. I sent out a few inquiries on Thumbtack while all of us were eating half melted ice cream, and within the hour, Benson Pro’s two electricians came by and fixed the problems. It only took them about an hour, and the price was very reasonable. Respectful, professional, and prompt. I’m so grateful they were available on such short notice, and would definitely call them again!
