    "I hired ALC to install 5 new outlets in my garage -- two of them 240v on two new 30a GFCI breakers. Vitaliy was fantastic from start to finish. He came when scheduled, walked through what I needed, and got started right away. When the parts needed to complete the work weren't immediately available, he worked with me to get them as quickly as possible and installed them right away to finish the project. Most of all he worked clean. Other than the new outlets, you would never know he had been there. Any future electrical work I have, I'll be sure to give him a call first."

    "Nat Holmes, of Holmes Electrical, did an outstanding job installing five lighting fixtures. I appreciated his prompt arrival. Nat is knowledgable, and mentors his experience with his two helpers: Frankie and Tyrone. I was very pleased. Overall I gave them a 4.5, but meant to say 5.0. I was not sure how to change it once added."

    "Mike is great. We hired him to bring some outlets up to code and install a couple of new ones. He was prompt, communicative, and informative with regards to what he was doing and why it had to be done. He worked quickly and efficiently, and the final invoice was in line with what he estimated prior to the job. He also had to cut into the drywall for a couple of installations, and he took great care to replace what he removed. I was fully prepared to have to do a full patch job, but thanks to Mike's careful work I only need to do a little sanding and spackling. He also cleaned up after himself; everywhere he worked was immaculate. You'd never know he was there. I plan on using Energy Opps for any and all future electrical work I need done."

    "They were quick to reply to my quote request and Blain arrived when they said he would. I noticed my water heater had gone bad around 11:00am and they had the new one installed around 6:00 the same evening. Blain was extremely nice, professional, and respectful and the work seems to be top notch."

    "HLS's president and installer Tom Sansone singlehandedly confirmed that experts who demonstrate exceptional customer care and superb performance do exist. Even if finding good pros wasn't such a futile exercise, Mr. Sansone is by far the best contractor, installer, business with whom I've dealt within the past 10 years, and that is no exaggeration. In terms of cost benefit of buying the system and his installation service? By comparison to everything I’ve bought and had installed since buying my house in 2014, I'd consider what HLS provided me may have been undervalued, because it's so vastly better than anything I have ordered, bought or had installed or done for any reason in more than four (maybe 10) years. My new commercial grade security camera system is so perfectly user friendly that it's like watching an HD TV with a DVR that does what you want). HLS’ owner installer tech Tom Sansone also instilled hope that a good, hard work ethic is not an elusive sentimental dream or unsatisfiable expectation. His work was so careful and response to my security needs that his work was exacting, clean, professional and so orderly that it replaced my miserable mess of wires, tape, broken and malfunctioning devices and system that had been rendered junk by intruders. Everything HSL installed and the base station was secured with a locking box and cooling system. His camera positioning and functionality were spot on and I now feel safer and more aware of my perimeter. My old, funky, fuzzy compromised Zmodo system has been replaced with a commercial grade wired, DVR system made by DAHUA Technologies, a wired DVR system with such clarity and functionality that I feel privileged to have it. HLS quality surpasses that of any product installation I’ve had in a decade. He faced a mess by the previous installer whose work pretty much mirrors the standard around this part of South Carolina, that being poor quality materials, spliced and black tape connections, loose and nonworking cameras, inaccessible remote viewing or backup records. I could never access viewing remotely resulting in persistent repeat burglaries and thefts rendering me practically uninsurable. As such, a reliable, highly functional system is imperative for my and my property’s protection. I now feel more secure and more capable or responding to the ravages of a predatory, drug-infested theft-riddled society sparing no one. Further, I don’t have to fume on hold in auto-prompt limbo trying to get help with my system, I have Tom Sansone to call if I need help with my system. I never have been more thankful or satisfied for any service, and I have gotten service that directly and critically enhances my very personal safety. (THANK YOU, HOME ADVISOR!!!)"

    "They responded to me right after my request. Found out exactly what I needed. Made a recommendation and supplied the fixture that I needed. I did not have to go get one myself which I really appreciated. They came out and took the other light down and had the new fixture up in just a matter of a few minutes. They did a good job was very respectful to me as I am a senior person. Very knowledgeable and I would definitely use them 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.
