    "Brian was very knowledgeable when it came to the job I hired him for. Very professional and on time. Brian did an amazing job with my wiring nightmare and helped me solve my electrical issues within my secondary home in Bradenton FL."

    For ALL your indoor and outdoor electrical needs., Residential Electrical Experts!

    "We actually had a long list of "fix-it" items that included outside electrical outlets, a new quad plug for the office, a new circuit and plug in the garage, installation of two ceiling fans and a couple of other items. The garage circuit required two trips into the attic where the temperature was upwards of 180 degrees! Dallas and Jerry started right on schedule and worked steadily until late in the day. The work was professional and executed with cheerful banter and careful attention to our needs. The entire experience, from my initial call for "emergency" help with a dead circuit, to the scheduling and execution of our larger project was excellent. Outstanding, guys!"

    "Great company. They gave me an estimate of costs before any work began, and even gave me multiple choices of service to decide from, without pushing the most costly. Technicians were knowledgeable and friendly, and provided exceptional customer service. I had three fan/light fixture combos installed in locations previously set up for only lights. They took care of the whole process, from up boxing the fixtures, to taking out the "trash". They asked for my input through the whole process, and were professionals throughout. I will definitely hire them again!"

    "Robert and his assistant, Nick really did a great job installing 5 ceiling fans with lights, getting the lights and the fans to each work with separate wall switches, installing a new light fixture in the breakfast nook, installing a back porch light and installing 3 new bathroom exhaust fans. I definitely will have Robert with his assistants back if I need anything else electrical done in our house."

    Lightning Protection

    "Its really nice to meet a company that uphold honesty and integrity as their values. This company did an install on my property following a major remodel in 2011 and did a great job at a competitive price. Fast forward to 2019 and I have recently had some of my roof replaced and the roofers removed all the of lightning rods! I called John and he came straight out exactly when he had promised. We own a large property and it would have been easy for him to charge me for a full replacement system but instead John explained that it was a pretty easy fix and the charged me very little to take care of my problem. John also walked the other buildings and checked all OK while he was there. Folks , This guy is old school honest and in today's world that's a rare commodity. Overall a great business I would highly recommend. Thank you John"

    "John Sherlock and his wife Corrine called within 1/2 hour of looking for Lightning Rod installers. He was available and was over to talk with us within one hour. He sent all his credentials and licenses and insurance coverages of his business and they came over the next morning and completed the installation extremely fast. He gave a fantastic offer, and lifetime warranty coverage and will even come over and take down system when we replace the roof and place back up at no charge! His wife even saw some plants we had not put in the garden still sitting in containers, and offered and planted them in the spaces we wanted, just to help out. Very friendly, helpful, professional, extremely knowledgeable and even suggested adding Lakeland Electrics Surge Protector protection they provide to go along with the Lightning rods. Yes would have them again on any home anytime."

    "After contacting the 3 companies provided by Home Advisor I chose to go with James Townsley and I'm very glad I did. He is very professional and did a great job. There were a few things that needed to be added to the installation, even so my cost remained the same as quoted. He was quick to respond to my emails and phone calls and did the installation on a day that should have been a day off for him to accommodate my strange work schedule. He is very knowledgeable and answered all my questions during the installation. I would and already have recommend him for lightning rod installations."

    "New 16kw backup generator installed 04/23/2020. Stellar customer service!!! Today two technicians arrived at our home not long after I called relative to a possible LP gas leak. Once again they were knowledgeable, courteous and professional. They took time carefully reviewing our newly installed 16kw backup generator and all connections leading thereto. They competed the repair, checked for leaks, ran the unit and cleaned up afterwards. When customers receive service like this, coupled with courteous professional and knowledgeable people, this company is 2nd to none. I can honestly say this company has been a pleasure to do business with and I will certainly recommend to anyone looking for such service. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. David & Angela Ortiz Lehigh Acres, FL."

    Wiring, Panels, New Construction Installs

    "Outstanding all around. I had a small fire in my electrical panel and Exodus rewired my home. The work entailed 1. Removing and installing a new main breaker panel with all new circuit breakers, 2. Installing new wiring, plugs, switches, and electrical plates 3. Bringing wiring to code for my range, 4. Installing new wiring for my new stackable washer/dryer which I just added to my house and added a new outlet for a new flat screen tv 5. Swapped out old light fixtures for new fixtures, 6. Added smoke detectors and combo carbon monoxide/smoke detectors where needed. The men were professional, pleasant, showed up when they said they would, respected my property, and cleaned up thoroughly. The electrical inspection went perfectly. The pricing was very reasonable and I was billed what was agreed upon before the work began. Exodus went beyond the call and was reasonably and fairly priced. I would highly recommend their work."

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.
