    "Called within a day for appointment. Arrived right on time. Fixed an issue.that turned out to not be my problem but really need to be fixed. Made a return trip on the original issue without charge and set up testing to track down the original issue. Will return in a week to check on the testing."

    "The mast, piping that houses the electrical wires that go into the meter box, was pulled away from my home as a result of my neighbors tree falling during a wind storm. Steury Electric responded the Sunday following Thanksgiving and he said he could come out that day. The price was pretty high but I needed to get the problem resolved for my tenant since the power was out. I later realized the tenant had, also, called someone who had just shown up but I had already promised the job to James and I wanted to keep my word so the other contractor left. Rather than take an hour as he initially thought,it only took about 20-25 minutes. In addition, I found out that the other contractor would have charged me half the price and that really bothered me. So a day or two later I called and shared my feelings with James and I must say that I was somewhat surprised at his response. He thanked me for sharing my feelings and told me that he valued me as a customer and would like to continue to have my business and he offered to refund me almost half of what I paid to ensure I felt good about my decision to hire him. James has helped restore my faith in knowing that there are still people out there who really care about their customers, their reputation and who do not believe in gouging people. I had a lot going on that James was not aware of and his kindness and willingness to make this right meant more than he can possibly know."

And the final project shows his high level of detail! He is very careful and thorough! The deck looks amazing and is far more than we expected.

    "Went one above and beyond what I was expecting I had someone else install the system they couldn’t fix it he come out and diagnosed it within a half hour. He contacted Solar edge. Talked with them about my warranty. Got everything covered under warranty. Had the parts shipped. Come back and installed the parts .Can’t say enough good things about Josh. For him to do everything he did when he did not install, the system was a blessing very fair price. I can’t forget he answered a lot of questions for me that I had went into very detailed explanation. I understand a lot more about the system."

    "Over a two day period Moir Electric fixed a broken light switch and exhaust fan in our bathroom; fixed bad wiring in a ceiling fan in our den and the lights are working again on the fan because of this; installed a back porch light and light switch; and fixed a light fixture in our basement. The back porch light fixture they installed is so beautiful. Bobby was great to work with and offered a really great and convenient way to pay while I was at work and unable to be there when the work was completed. The young man who did the work was very kind and respectful and did a phenomenal job. He even did the den on day one when he didn't originally come out to do that room. He said he had time to do both the bathroom and den. I was expecting to pay a lot, but surprised by how much I paid for all the work they did. I HIGHLY recommend Moir Electric. They arrived when they said they would, offered better than fair pricing, and did a phenomenal job. Color me impressed. I will definitely use them again."

    Roof repair water proofing no electrical, Lightning Protection - Install or Repair

    "Mr. Jim Gorman who is the owner of the business called me back within a half hour of my email posting. He visited my home 3 days later, inspected things, and told me what the approximate cost would be. He and his helper then installed an entire lightning protection system on both my house and a back garage/storage area. He did things exactly as I wanted in every way. Also threw in a free weathervane which increased the beauty of my home. I would have no objection to recommending this gentleman and his company to anyone who is in need of a competently installed lightning protection system for their home/property. MID-AMERICA LIGHTNING RODS is one fine company run by a man who cares about doing good work according to the latest safety codes etc. Having lost my previous retirement home to lightning, it was very important to me to get this job done and quickly because the thunderstorm season is upon us and with the climate change, those storms are very wicked, especially here out in the country where i live!"

How much do electricians typically cost?

  • Fort Wayne, Indiana Average
    $269
  • Typical Range
    $149 - $384
  • Low End - High End
    $80 - $700

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.
