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.

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.

Great electrician!

I would hesitate before recommending SeaTown to anyone. While their technicians do appear to be knowledgeable, their prices are the highest in the city. I had four other electricians come over to bid on the same work and the other bids came in at HALF what SeaTown bid. Their technician also almost scared us into replacing our entire electrician panel, which the other 4 electricians (including a master electrician with 30+ years of experience) said was unnecessary. SeaTown’s prices are too high and their scare tactics are indeed scary. I’d recommend going with a smaller business, and one that is more realistic with their pricing.

Jeff is incredibly knowledgeable and did great work! He’s super communicative, reliable, and a true Swiss Army knife of an electrician and plumber. He’s the type of guy I expect to call for every relevant project I have well into the future. Very friendly and easy going. I’ve had sub par vendor experiences with other electricians/plumbers before, so working with Jeff was a breath of fresh air. I cannot recommend him enough.

The electrician on Art's team stopped by, assessed the repair my fuse box needed and quoted a very reasonable price. I would hire them again and recommend them to my friends.

Mr Shahram Very fair with this pricing Very knowledgeable electrician Very polite patient great customer service skills anytime I need work done he will be the 1st out call
Kelsey D.
Please be advised: this company will still charge you even if no work was completed! They charged me $50 for an assessment. I explained that my project need xzy and 123. They said that the person they send can start the job that day. After completing the assessment, the person said that this project would need to be passed to a different person (an electrician). Why would this company send someone to complete an electrical issue if the person is not a certified electrician? Granted, the perosn was very nice, but still not an electrician, when I indicated that the issues was related to an electrical issue. In regards to the other part of my project, since no materials were at hand, they couldn't do anything. They apparently do not keep extra can lights or other materials with them. All materials HAVE to be provided to the person doing the work. I would advise you to go with a different company.

Hired for a simple job (installing a waterproof outlet). They responded within a few hours on the weekend with a lower price than most, scheduled a few days out, arrived on time, and finished in less than an hour. As painless as an electrician experience can be.
