    "Got electrical needs? I strongly recommend that you call this company for a quote at least. Amit the owner and his crew are polite, professional and reliable. After other electricians were quoting me ridiculous prices to install under cabinet lighting, Amit stopped by, gave me a reasonable price and even performed my lighting installation that same day. Lights were working well until I found a faulty switch which had nothing to do with their installation. But Amit sent someone from his crew on another day and kindly fixed the problem switch, no charge. Thank you PHEC!"

He maintained a positive, professional, can-do attitude the entire time, which put my mind at ease. He will be my go-to electrician moving forward."

    "Myself and several neighbors went searching for fixed home generators for each of our houses. This search included 5 different vendors, all of which offered Generac & some also had Kohler generators. Complete installation prices in some cases varied by over $3,000.00 for the same needs. We went with Ben because his professional approach, time he took to go through everything with us and make us feel comfortable. And they were cheaper than the other 4 quotes we got"

    "Mark was very communicative prior to coming for the installation. We quoted the Tesla Wall Charger installation site unseen for a basic (same wall as the panel), and extended project (routing to the center of the garage). Both quotes were competitive, and he was able to complete the job within a few hours of arrival. Upon getting to the house, Mark was able to provide the advice needed as to where to place the charger, as we walked through the convenience and practicality of the best fit. He was pleasant, knowledgeable, and professional. Mark was also cognizant that I was working from home and managed to limit interruptions. Mark is a class act, and I completely recommend M W Electric for your EV installation needs."

    "I had a 2 year old outdoor ceiling fan that stopped working. No one including the manufacturer wanted to repair it. Freddi came to our home took the fan a part but couldn't fix it. However, he suggested swapping a fan from an area that didn't get much use with the non working fan. To our surprise the non working fan started working after it was reinstalled. Problem solved! We are very happy with the result and thankful that Freddi was willing to help us."

    "Daniel and his colleague did a great job! Initially, they installed lighting fixtures, but then I decided to install recessed lighting instead. Before he returned to do another job, we discussed the kinds of fixtures and placement. His follow up and communication was great throughout. He completed the job and I was extremely satisfied with how it turned out. Am thinking of other jobs he can do! UPDATE 4/10/2019: This is the third time that I have hired Daniel. He is always the consummate professional. Very easy to work with. Will deliver exactly as promised and does excellent work. In addition to installing 6 recessed lights, he moved and installed a fan and replaced another fan in a different room."

He diagnosed problems with 4 ceiling fans, repaired the ones that were repairable, and installed a light switch all in about 2 hours. He is an expert on ceiling fans and advised me on what to tell the manufacturer for the warranty claims on the fans that could not be repaired.

    "We had a fairly large project for our house. We called Velasquez Electric to request a quote for a panel upgrade, recessed lighted in our vaulted ceiling living and family rooms and to replace outlets and switches for those rooms and our kitchen and dining room. Geovanny came to our house to quote the project, recommend and advise us the best solution for our request. He is extremely polite and very professional. The projects were going very nicely and we decided to add some recessed lighting and switches to our two bathrooms as well. Geovanny and his brother were very neat in their work, very polite, courteous and exceeded our expectations. I highly recommend Velasquez Electric for any and all of your electric needs. We have additional lighting for the exterior of our home and this is the only electrician I will need to call. Thank you for a job well done!"

How much do electricians typically cost?

  • Chatsworth, California Average
    $385
  • Typical Range
    $194 - $441
  • Low End - High End
    $95 - $1,200

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.
