    "It was a cold and rainy Saturday night when I came home. I was expecting to have a warm toasty homecoming except I was greeted with chilly air and coldness of the floor. I discovered that the thermostat had stopped working. It was late so I called the company that I had been using for years, though I was a bit reluctant to call since the last experience with them was bordering a rip off. After I left a message, before I jumped into my bed intenting to ride the cold night out, I decided to use Angie's List and perhaps I would have someone call me on Sunday morning to do the work. Shortly after I placed the project info, within a few minutes I got a text from Matt Conde of Conde Tech Services. They said they could come out tonight if I am up for it. I said to myself, wow, these guys really work quite hard, so without any hesitation I decided to give them a try. Matt and his brother showed up at around 12:30 am and got to work right away. It turned out that the problem was not the thermostat but something to do with the electrical wiring of the system. In any event, they ended up did not finish the diagnosis and repair until around 3 am that morning. Matt and his brother had to take turn going out in the cold to work on the heat pump. I was quite impressed with the dedication and passion that they had for their job. These days, you don't find that many folks out there who are passionate about their jobs. So I asked them why they started their business and Matt explained that he and his brother were working for a large company for many years and they became dissatisfied as to how the emphasis had been placed on profits over the customer service. At the end of the night (or crazy early Sunday morning), I was very thankful for Conde Tech Services and they have earned a life time customer. :)"

    "Very professional and courteous service from the team at Viva Group! Chris was a pleasure to work with scheduling and Rich the electrician provide master level installation of a 40amp plug in our garage for a electric vehicle charging station. This was not an easy job as our breaker panels are in the basement. I would highly recommend this company."

    "My experience with David at Snell was great. I appreciated that he was able to fix my two systems so that I did not have to replace them. He kept me informed throughout the diagnostic and repair process. He was very professional, knowledgeable, and thorough. He took the time to identify the problems and determine a good solution. I would definitely use Snell again."

    "I just built my house a year ago and needed to add an EV charger to my garage. Trish called me within an hour and set up an appointment for Hugo to come out the next day. There were two additional parts to the job I needed done as well, and one of them was a bit more expensive than I was expecting... but honestly, I had no idea how much to expect for the third part of the job so I can't blame them at all. There was no pressure at all to complete the more expensive portion of the job when I told them I'd have to pass on it at the time. The actual job was scheduled for the following week, and Tommy and Kevin showed up on time and were done in less than 3 hours. They gave me a few recommendations for drywall repair as well since there were three small holes that needed cut to run the new circuit for the EV charger. Highly recommended... Hugo & Kevin were extremely knowledgeable and helpful with all questions from a new homeowner like myself."

    "We had an excellent experience with Ariel and the Precise team. We hired them to install an EV charging station at our house. While other companies would only give us an estimate over the phone, or waited weeks to respond, they sent a representative to the house the next day and then gave us a bid within 24 hours. Their bid was also $300 under the second lowest bid. They were professional, prompt and completed the job in one day. When we asked for a small modification after installation (not their fault), they sent a rep back to modify the charger at no additional cost. Ariel checked in by phone and text throughout the process to make sure we were satisfied. It's refreshing to find a home services provider that is honest, responsive, good value for money and great quality. We will definitely use again."

The company was professional and knowledgable about the installation of large flat screen TV. The installation was very tricky & not your average install. It was on a brick fireplace that had been covered with carpentry. Very good job & I would definitely recommend their services. Their pricing was extremely fair and better that B&ST Buy."

    "The approach that AirPlus used to install my generator was more creative than their competition. They were able to put the generator where I wanted it (some competitors said that was impossible, that it would not pass inspection, or had other excuses). In addition, they way they ran the gas line was more creative, less visible and less expensive than their competitors. I am very happy with the results and would use this company again."

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.
