Baltimore Electricians

Electricians handle a variety of services that can be unsafe for inexperienced homeowners to perform on their own. The Baltimore area has thousands of homes built more than 100 years ago with outdated fixtures and wiring systems. Experienced electricians know how to safely handle these systems and make upgrades to the home, too. Additionally, they handle smaller projects like installing light fixtures and baseboard heating. Costs for electrical services in Baltimore vary depending on the size of the project, type of project, and the condition of the existing wiring system.

Neighborhoods and Suburbs of Baltimore

Baltimore is one of the oldest cities in the United States, so it is no surprise that many of the homes in the city and surrounding areas have a long history of existing structures. While many homes have undergone multiple renovations over the years, including updating the electrical wiring, homeowners still have to upgrade and maintain the homes in order to modernize them while preserving their historical qualities. These old homes vary greatly depending on their location.

  • Annapolis is one of the top suburbs to live in in the Baltimore metropolitan area. It has a history dating back to the 1600s, and many of the homes here feature historic architecture. Additionally, it has charming waterfront views and houses with personality. It is located about 30 miles south of Baltimore, making for an easy commute to an urban environment.
  • Towson is located just north of Baltimore. This suburb has a small-town feel despite its close proximity to the city. This area boasts a wide range of homes, from Colonial and farmhouse styles to newly constructed houses.
  • Cockeysville, located a little farther north than Towson, is a small town is nestled right in the heart of the countryside. The rural area is just a 20-minute drive into the city. It has a diverse array of country homes, such as Tudors, Colonials, and farmhouses. The population is just as diverse, with professionals and families calling this suburb home.
  • Canton is a neighborhood located right in downtown Maryland. Many of the homes date as far back as the Civil War, while others are from the early 1900s. Additionally, many townhouses and condos have popped up in the area. The neighborhood provides a suburban feel right in the city.

Cost of Electrical Services in Baltimore

Because Baltimore is located in the northeastern United States, it sees cold temperatures and quite a bit of snow in the winter. Ensuring that the electrical system of a home is up to date and in good working order means families can stay warm all winter long. Homeowners in need of electrical services can expect to pay an average of $50 to $100 per hour for an electrician to come to the home. Additional charges vary depending on the type of electrical services needed. Examples are listed in the table below.

Electrical Service

Cost

Rewiring a house (moderate)

$3,500 - $8,000

Rewiring a house (large)

$8,000 - $30,000

Installing a baseboard heater

$125 - $300

Installing power transfer switch for generator

$400 - $1,000

Electricians also usually have a minimum service charge of $50 to $150 for making a trip to the house. Homeowners should consider this when hiring an electrician for a small project.

Licensing & Insurance Information

Contractors that provide electrical services must obtain a license from the Maryland State Board of Master Electricians. Alternatively, contractors who have a certain amount of training and experience can complete electrical projects on their own with a Journeyman's License. A journeyman electrician works under the guidance of a Master Electrician, but a licensed Master Electrician is needed for major construction and renovation projects.

Benefits of Electrical Services

Electricians are valuable contractors to have on call when living in Baltimore. Homeowners rely on contractors to provide electrical services to preserve the historic beauty of the homes throughout the area. From a complete home rewiring to upgrading the fixtures, electricians handle a variety of tasks that can increase the value of the home. Additionally, because of the harsh winters, homeowners can count on professionals to ensure that their houses have heat and power during the most frigid months of the year.
