    "Replaced my 125 AMP Circuit Breaker Panel. I couldn't be more pleased with the outstanding job the electrician, Art Martinez, did from start to finish. Some of my pleased reasons include Art's professional business manner, his patience in answering my job-related questions, the beauty of his completed work, and the City of Culver City's Permit Inspector's good comments and approval of the installation that Art did in my Condominium Unit."

    "Miguel's electrical work is by far superior to any other company I've hired. I contracted him for a two bedroom 2 bathroom addition project, and he was very knowledgeable with reading blueprints and needed no supervision. Miguel was very concious of our deadline and delivered excellent work on schedule. But what really separates him from the rest is his communication and attention to detail. I have been using him ever since and I'm very pleased with his work."

    "I have hired Carlos twice now for projects in my condo. The first time he was recommended by my realtor and my friend hired him to replace a panel in his condo. He was very pleased and said he was honest which is true. Carlos gave me two quotes for two different jobs. I needed to phase them so that it would fit in my budget. His quotes were very reasonable so I hired him for phase one which was to replace my kitchen and bathroom lights from fluorescents to recessed lighting. Not only did he do the install be he also did the drywall to patch the wholes. What licensed electrician would ever do that!? I hired him again for Phase two which was to install a ceiling fan, replace and reposition an existing ceiling fan and install a new overhead light in the spare room. Again, as promised he also did the patch work. I also had him replace me switches to more modern ones. Carlos is responsive, accommodating, knowledgeable and on time. I plan on hiring him in the future for more projects. I highly recommend him."

    "Had an emergency the late afternoon before Thanksgiving -- the chain on my light fixture in the dining room wouldn't work and thus I could not turn on the lights. I called HBA and he came over within 20 minutes. It turned out that it was a bit more complicated than just the chain. B.J. went to Loew's and called us from there and said the part we needed was $45 but they had the exact same fixture for $99 and did we want a new one? So he brought us the new lamp/fan and put it together in about 10 minutes and installed it just as quickly. Saved our holiday!"

Walter came to our home to assess the work that needed to be done and gave us an estimate. He promptly arrived a few days later to perform the work. We are pleased with the job performed by both Walter and his assistant. We highly recommend Mason Electric - friendly, professional and knowledgeable electricians. Thank you!"

    "I needed to up grade a fixture in my kitchen from a track light to mini flush mounted LED recessed lights. They required a transformer and two other Electricians not only could not figure out the parts needed but could only do the job with the wiring on the wall instead of inside. Tony and Tony figures it out, went to get the necessary parts and are doing an excellent job for a fraction of the price quoted by the “know- nothing” guys. I am a happy camper"

    "Got electrical needs? I strongly recommend that you call this company for a quote at least. Amit the owner and his crew are polite, professional and reliable. After other electricians were quoting me ridiculous prices to install under cabinet lighting, Amit stopped by, gave me a reasonable price and even performed my lighting installation that same day. Lights were working well until I found a faulty switch which had nothing to do with their installation. But Amit sent someone from his crew on another day and kindly fixed the problem switch, no charge. Thank you PHEC!"

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.
