    "I highly recommend Bill Heaton of Heaton Electrical Services, LLC. Bill carried out an extensive rewiring project in every room of our 100 year old house, which we were getting ready to sell. He removed knob and tube and other out dated electrical lines and replaced them with safe and code-compliant wiring. His professional skills were confirmed when this large project easily passed the inspection required by our townshipâ s permitting process. Weâ re confident that this electrical work contributed greatly to our ability to sell the house quickly. Bill was in our home five days a week for five weeks. You get to know a little something about a person during that time. Bill was reliable, hard working, cared about the quality of work - and we just plain liked him. He always gave us updates and consulted on decisions needed on this complex project. I recommend Bill Heaton Electrical Services to family and friends and hope you will consider them for your electrical repairs and upgrades."

    "I have hired ABC Lawn and Landscaping for a few outdoor projects now including winterizing an irrigation system, some fall clean up, and removal of tall weeds/grasses at the back of my property line. I have dealt with Josh on numerous occasions and he has always presented himself in the upmost professional manner and was able to accommodate me with ease. You can tell that he and his team do care about the quality of work that they provide which is nice to see nowadays. I have been thoroughly impressed by all encounters thus far that I have decided to switch my lawn maintenance company come to spring! Would without a doubt, hands-down, recommend this company for your outdoor needs based on my experience!"

    "We just want to say thank you for the beyond amazing service that we received from office staff and even more the gentleman that installed our new water softener system with reverse osmosis, uv light and a tankless hot water heater . Mike and Forest where amazing, knowledgeable and kind. Mike helped move some things around in the basement because I didnâ t have it done in time. They are a great team and work really well with each other. We had made them sweet Italian sausage for lunch. We noticed a water leak after they left l. Mike was so amazing and drove from Albany to fix it for us on his way home for the night. I had some chili cooking and gave him some. Mike even cleaned the water of the basement floor. Way more above and beyond than he needed too. Truly amazing. My family would like to say that Mike and Forest are a rare kind of people who just care and will go above and beyond for the people they help to have a better quality of life. We had moved in to take care of our nanny and her water system was no longer working and a week before the install the hot water heater went after 30 years. We recently updated appliances and we needed to protect our investment from the hard water. We absolutely love the reverse osmosis and are drinking the water so much we run out of drinking water lol. We will eventually upgrade to a dual holding tank for drinking water. For now we can make due with what we have. We were spending about $150 sometimes more in water a month for cooking and drinking purposes now we will see the savings in roughly 6 years just for not buying water anymore. With the tankless hot water heater it is too soon to see the savings yet we have a propane system living in the country and we are trying to reduce electric consumption. Gas is cheaper than electric for the usage we have we estimate that we will save around $80 additionally per month with the tankless hot water system. With that added into the equation we estimate about 4.5 years and we will have our return on our initial investment. Our next project will be a generator from this company. We lose electricity a few times a year and with nannyâ s health itâ s not acceptable in todayâ s society. Again thank you Mike and Forest the office ladyâ s weâ re very helpful on this process with us as well."

    "When installing a whole House Generator the most important aspect of the job is the installer, not necessarily the hardware. Of course your research will tell you which unit and manufacturer to buy, The experience when issues arise, either warranty or after install service work is crucial to a seamless customer experience. I purchased a 16kw new unit from Monyer, the team was exceptionally professional, courteous and clean doing the install, after several hours the unit was set to be tested, and no-go. Product did not start, so after troubleshooting they found that a bad part from the factory was put in, so the electrician went back to the office and explained the process for getting a replacement part. By the end of the day, David and Emmy the Customer Support team reached out to me and advised that an entire new unit would be exchanged for the old unit. That is customer service excellance'! When you purchase a large appliance like a Generator and Air Conditioner your relationship for anything correlated to problems, you deal directly with your installer....NOT THE MANUFACTURER! SO as I stated earlier the installers reputation and follow up is key to your successful installation and follow up. Highly recommend Monyer Electric and Generator installation, and I will reach out the net time I have an electrical related issue required. Great people, teamwork at its best and a pleasure to do business with....even through the pandemic that everone states "due to Covid we....." Not a word about it, they conducted business as one would expect!"

    "Mr. Gorman was very kind. He was willing to come to my home and do an estimate for repair of missing shingles and flashings. This was something none of the other roofing companies in my area were willing to do. He gave me a price that I could afford versus all the other guys trying to charge me to completely replace my roof that only needed minor repairs. Most of all, he was able to immediately do the repairs and guarantee the work! Also, I appreciated that it was truly a family operated business. I would definitely recommend this business because I plan of re-hiring them for another job unrelated to my roof!"

Frequently asked questions

  • An electrician’s cost per hour comes in between $50 and $100. It’ll vary depending on your location and the type or professional you hire. Areas with a higher cost of living can expect to pay on the higher end of that scale. Licensing level may also increase the price.
  • Usually you’ll pay a higher rate for the first hour. This covers their travel and time expense. Emergency or after-hours rates are usually higher too – expect to pay an emergency fee of up to $300 plus a higher hourly rate.

Electricians do a fair amount of larger remodeling and new construction projects but also common residential projects including:

For cost information related to the above tasks, visit our Electrical Cost Guide.

  1. Do you have a license to perform electrical work in this state?
    All states require an electrical license or work performed under a Master Electrician. You should also ask how many on the job hours of experience they have.
  2. Do you have insurance?
    Never use one who isn’t insured. You can ask to see proof of insurance.
  3. Do you have prior work references?
    You might skip this for small jobs like installing a light or outlet. For larger projects, always get references.
  4. What are your rates?
    Always ask up front. Getting a detailed quote up front is the best way to go.
  5. Who is going to do the actual work?
    Often, a Master Electrician will come out to diagnose and bid on projects, but they have their apprentice and journeyman electricians do the work. This isn’t a terrible thing, in fact it’s common practice. The Master’s license is on the line with any work he supervises.
  6. Is your work warrantied or guaranteed?
    Any reputable company or contractor warranties their work, usually for at least a year.
  7. Are you usually on time?
    Overbooking is a frequent problem with electrical work. Often, a service call goes long, and they end up showing up at your home late. This common complaint is easily remedied with an up-front and honest discussion. If they can’t be on time, make sure they’ll call.

1. Don’t Be Misled by an Electrician’s Hourly Rates

A truly skilled, well-equipped professional with a truck full of parts that charges $100 an hour can be a much wiser choice than an inexperienced hack, working with inadequate tools and no parts, but charging much less. Often, more experienced professionals get the job done quickly with warrantied work.

2. Compare Travel Charges

Rates reflect travel times. Travel charges can have a big impact on your costs and are in some ways easier to compare than hourly rates. Many electricians spend a third or more of their time navigating traffic on their way to a jobsite. Every contractor must find a way to pay for the expense of driving each day.

3. Bundle Repair Jobs Together

When you feel it’s time to call a pro, review your list and then conduct a mini-inspection of your home. Look for faulty switches and dysfunctional or crowded outlets. When the electrician comes, you’ll save money and time by getting everything taken care of at once.

4. How to Prepare & What to Know Before the Electrician Arrives
  • Be as thorough and detailed in describing your needs to your contractor. The more they know, the quicker the job will go.
  • Before they arrive, prepare a precise list of items you want serviced. Electricians have budgeted their time for a service call. They don’t have time for additional requests once they are on site.
  • Make sure the electrical panel box is accessible. You’ll pay for the time it takes to access it.
  • Clear away fragile items, knickknacks and furniture from areas where you expect the them to work.
  • If you have questions about the project, ask them before they start. Most are happy to run you through the problem and the process of fixing it.
  • Ask about potential issues after the work is complete. During a service call a professional will spot any potential hazards.
  • You’ll lose power to parts of your home while they work. Be prepared to pause anything you’re doing during the service call.
  • In most cases you’ll have the option to either pay at the time of service or have a bill sent to you. You’ll be able to pay with cash, credit and sometimes check.
5. Install Money-Saving Electrical Fixtures
  • By switching from ordinary incandescent light fixtures or bulbs to fluorescent or LED ones, you can substantially reduce energy consumption in your home.
  • Motion detector switches can help you save money on outdoor lighting while at the same time providing very cost-effective security to your home.
  • Creative landscape lighting and indoor accent lighting can make your home more appealing to you, your guests and potential buyers in the future.
