    "I bought an older house and was wanting to have some electrical work done. So I gave CJ electric a phone call and right out of the gate was very pleased with the customer service and effort put into even just a quote. I was helped with any question I asked, above and beyond. The cost was very affordable and the entire house looked great and worked great when CJ electric finished up. From start to finish they have been great to work with. No mess and no hassle. Highly recommend them."

    "Josh called immediately, set up the appointment for a couple days later, showed up on time, did the job professionally and for a fair price. The job actually consisted of replacing one ceiling fan/light in the living room (vaulted ceiling) and one light in the staircase, and then he came to the office to look at a problem involving four lights and found and repaired the problem within minutes."

    "Josh installed the necessary wiring and disconnect panel to install a new hot tub, installed a RV charging plug and new lighting fixture. He is extremely professional, conscientious and knowledgeable of the electrical code. He was always responsive and offered ways to meet unique installation challenges. During the inspection, the inspector was extremely pleased with his work. The inspector had to double check the code as the inspector was even sure of some of the intricacies of the code. He is very affordable and will definitely use him again. You shouldn't hesitate to use him."

    "Advanced Wireless did the job efficiently and professionally in an amazingly timely manner. I called them, and they were on another job, but said they would come out later that same day. However, within the hour, they called back, saying that they were waiting on the electrician to show up at their job site which was not far from my home. They asked if they could come at that time, and of course, I was very happy to have them come earlier. They came and completed the job within 1/2 hour. No traces of drilling "dust" or any other residue. The job was less than what another company had quoted me. That company's earliest opening was in 3 weeks! The electrician who was working at my house said Advanced Wireless technicians were able to work without getting into his way at all, and that he felt they did such a good job, he asked for their business card as well! I would recommend this company to everyone who needs cable TV wiring, data wiring, or telephone wiring installed. Neat, efficient, professional. Excellent all around!"

He was on top of everything and made sure we were well taken care of. He did a great job and was so friendly and nice. He also was very responsive and easy to reach whenever we had questions. I wish we could give him more than 5 stars!"

    "Near impossible to get ahold of them, I understand being business, but then there is blatant ignoring. Even after planning another job. I cant access my Internet cable as its now stuck under a outside wire tube. Needing to call my Internet provider to get it moved."

    "There arenâ t enough positive words in the dictionary to describe Alex. When other electricians were gouging me with estimates, Alex came in, gave me a reasonable estimate, and I hired him on the spot. When it came to the work, Alex was on time, and showed up with the most positive attitude and smile on his face. I was one of those customers that sat and bothered him the whole time because he was so easy to talk to. It really felt like I had a friend doing the work with how he didnâ t get annoyed and engaged in conversation with me. Letâ s just say, I absolutely will not allow another electrical company to do any work for me unless it is Capitol Electric. And even more so, if itâ s Alex. You will not be disappointed in their work, their prices, or their attitudes and personalities."

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.
