    "Matt Conde, the owner, scheduled me as soon as possible; even tried to fit my repair in at 9PM! I preferred to go with the following morning - he arrived on schedule and since I am quarantined, stayed on the phone with me while he was outside, fixing my inoperable fan. Matt kept me apprised of all necessary repairs, helped me to reset the thermostat, and completed payment and digital receipt all over the phone. The rates are competitive with the 'specials' I receive in the mail, but the service is top-quality attention to detail. Conde Tech absolutely has my business and I recommend them to anyone who needs trustworthy service."

    "I searched Home Advisor late Saturday night looking for a plumber, not expecting to hear back until Monday. I received a phone call within minutes from Johno, apologizing for the lateness of the hour, but acknowledging that when you have a plumbing problem, you may need immediate assistance. I appreciated his call and mannerly way of speaking to me very much. We arranged for him to come by and assess our problems the next afternoon. There were several: a leak under the kitchen sink, leaking pipes in the basement, and a leaking shower diverter. After discussion of several options, along with pricing, we decided to replace all relevant pipes, and have Johno repair the other leaks. They arrived the next day, on time, giving me a call before arriving to let me know they were on their way, and they came prepared with all necessary equipment. Johno's team, himself and Alex, were both very polite, very professional, and knowledgeable about how best to fix our problems. They finished the job within 3 hours, and we were very grateful, as we had previously hired a contractor who promised big and way under-delivered--still had the same problems as before after two days of working to fix all. There was also a kitchen pull-down faucet that had sprung a leak. He gave me estimates on replacing it with a much better unit, and also offered to find the part we needed to fix the existing one. He took a picture of it, looked it up in the catalog, and texted me all the pertinent information -- part number, warranty, etc., and offered to install it for a small charge. I ordered the part, it came within two days, and the next day he came back to install it. I am very impressed with this young man's work ethic, his willingness to find alternatives that may be less expensive, give his best professional advice, arrive on time, complete the job sooner than expected, come back for a small job again immediately, and most importantly, do a first rate plumbing job. We have found a reliable plumber that we will certainly call on again as needed. He's a Keeper!"

    "Edwin was fast in providing me an estimate for the work and easily accommodated the dates I needed. Pedro did a wonderful job on the installation of three light pendants and a ceiling fan. Finished product is better than I had envisioned. Pedro worked diligently and cleanly on my project. I would definitely hire Edwin and Crew again."

    "I had called several HVAC companies to come out to give me an estimate to have my A/C and Furnaces replaced in my home - I have 2 zones so that's 4 units. To be honest, Richards was my first choice as they had come highly recommended by a friend, but they couldn't be bothered with me and wouldn't give us the time of day. They were very dismissive and not interested in our business. Not only was Snell quick to show up and give us a quote, but Dave was kind, courteous and professional. He provided us with comprehensive options and he really listened to what we wanted out of this project. Dave followed up with me shortly after his visit and when it was time to make our decision, the Snell team was out at our house in the middle of a heat wave within 3 days to install our new system. They had everything completed in 1 day and everything was neat and tidy when they left! I am so glad that I went with Snell and wouldn't change a thing about the decision that we made. Although their quotes came in a little higher than others, it was totally worth it and we would recommend them to everyone if you want quality work done by professionals that know their business and customer service. FIVE STARS FOR SURE!!"

He was prompt, courteous, and professional in completing the work, as was his team member who did the drywall work. The job was quickly approved by the County inspector and I've not had any issues since."

    "I sent the request to Home Advisor on a Sunday night. The company called me Monday morning & scheduled a TV mounting the same day. 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."

    "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."

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.
