    "One of the very best customer service experiences I have ever had. Keegan was amazing. One of the most polite young men I have ever met. Literally five minutes after I had filled out the HA form, he called me - on a Sunday - and walked me through my generator problem. He requested that I text him photos of the generator. He then called me back - still on Sunday - and explained all the issues. On Monday he called me again to confirm he had spoken with the manufacturer and had determined a game plan for addressing my generator's issues. We set up an appointment, which was yesterday. He showed up right on time (he had called to let me know he was on the way). He got right down to business and now my generator is as good as new. I could go on and on, but suffice to say, I am totally satisfied with the experience of working with Power Cross. They exceeded expectations on every level."

    "I called for an estimate for a new light fixture. And a added circuit breaker for my garage I found out I was already overloaded. That was why the breakers kept going off. Drake showed me a way to upgrade and add all that I wanted and now have room for extra stuff. He showed me all that was wrong and the reason why he could not just add to the problem that I had. The new panel is really good looking everything neat and not crossing everywhere"

    "There are not enough superlatives to use when rating my experience with Mr, Sparky. The technician that came to my house in Mandeville, Louisiana arrived on time, answered all of my questions, and provided me with an exceptionally reasonable price to install a new light in my bathroom. Once I had the light fixture in hand, Dave (the Mr, Sparky technician) returned to the house and installed the light in an amazingly short period of time. AND following the installation, made sure the area was clean and free of the normal debris associated with that type of work. I would highly recommend Mr. Sparky to anyone who is in need of an excellent electrician and I would not hesitate to contact them for any future projects. It is my hope that If additional work is needed, I will be fortunate enough to have Dave as my technician. I wish every business would be as conscientious as those who work at Mr. Sparky. Who knew--a business that obviously takes pride in their work and honors their commitments! What a novel idea."

How much do electricians typically cost?

  • Covington, Louisiana Average
    $307
  • Typical Range
    $179 - $425
  • Low End - High End
    $80 - $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.
