    "I hired them to remodel my kids bathroom. I couldn't believe how easy they were to work with so I hired them again to remodel our Master Bath as well, just to be sure. I was right. Alan and Kevin worked efficiently every day not leaving before cleaning up. The installed a new bathtub, toilet, plumbing, vanity, vanity top and light fixtures in the first project and fully tiled a shower stall, installed a shower seat and heated mirror and a full vanity with custom mirrors and lighting. There's nothing these guys can't do. If you're thinking of having any significant work done or even minor work you don't want to take on yourself, you better grab them up."

    "I requested a quote last night, after business hours, I received a phone call last night from Navin. Navin said he would be at my house at 10:00 a.m. in the morning; he was here at 9:55. He provided me with a quote, left to pick up the part required, and finished our plumbing job within two hours, not only making it new again, but added another piece to make it better! I highly recommend Navin!"

    "Shannon gave us good suggestions as to what light fixtures to purchase and completed the job in the least disruptive way to our home. The finished product - adding ceiling lights in our den and installing a new kitchen light - were done quickly and efficiently. Will definitely use this company again the next time we have an electrical issue."

    "My EV charger setup is exactly what I envisioned and working with Wes could not have been easier. He contacted me the day after I requested quotes through Home Advisor and I texted him what I had in mind and photos. He needed more info and came out the next day, gave me a quote on site and scheduled my job for the following week. In addition to fitting me in within a week, his pricing seemed fair (of my four quotes, his was right in the middle) and I felt good about his experience—Wes told me he installs two to three chargers a day. When I asked for a charger recommendation and whether to hardwire or install an outlet, Wes was quick to suggest Chargepoint and hardwiring, which other electricians were less definitive about. I am already thinking about other electrical projects I could hire Wes to do."

We were so happy with his work that we had him install exterior light fixtures. Casey was a true professional and we enjoyed working with him. We have many other jobs that we will be using his services for. ."

    "My project was fairly difficult since the transfer switch was far from the generator on the opposite end of the house. But my installer, Ivan, was up to the task, even though it took longer than usual. The final project turned out great, and I can hardly wait for the power to go out so I can experience having the lights stay on without having to go out to the garage and hook up my portable generator."

    "They were profesional and curteous in addition to being reasonably priced. As an example, since some of the work had to be performed in both our dirty cellar and carpeted areas, they came with drop cloths to put on the carpeted areas to protect the carpetted areas. My sense is that their motto isn't just words to them: "I wouldn't do anything in your home that I wouldn't do in my own.""

How much do electricians typically cost?

  • Clifton Park, New York Average
    $333
  • Typical Range
    $164 - $444
  • Low End - High End
    $100 - $1,000

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.
