    "Gallagher Electric also updated the electrical panel from 100 amps to 200 amps. A Generac smart management module was installed along with the transfer switch so that a 14 kwh generator could be used instead of having to purchase a 16 kwh generator. They also installed five additional 20 amp plugs and ran a new wire to the kitchen stove. The generator was connected to the existing natural gas service."

    "Chase did SO much more than just electrical. The 120 year old house needed a complete electrical rewire. Plumbing needed seeing to and he contracted that out and project managed for me. Walls needed to be fully rebuilt due to age and the electrical access. Identified a dodgy gas line. Fixed any odds and ends that came up. The reason this is so important is that this was my parents house that I now own because they passed away. I needed it ready to rent to my parents friends. I live 2 hours away and was never on site and did not have time. Chase worked directly with my renters on cosmetic items but otherwise worked totally independently. He is EXTREMELY trust worthy. He communicated anything I needed to know and was very responsive. All the work Chase did, and his assistance and understanding of the situation, was invaluable. It's amazing to trust someone to be in a house full of all your parents things and know that they will be honest, careful, and respectful. You should be grateful if you get him on a project for you."

    "James was a pleasure to work with. He replaced an old fluorescent fixture with a new LED fixture and added two new lights that needed upgrading.

    "Had Jeff install motion detector lights around the perimeter of our house (which is brick) and he and his assistant did a fantastic job. All the lights look and work great. Not to mention, they installed these lights right after our big blizzard weekend, so not only did they work outside while it was snowing, they also had to dig out a Lot of snow (approx. 2-3 feet in places) just to be able to reach the area's where the fixtures were to be installed. We also had Jeff install an electric car charging station, which required installing a 40amp breaker and high gauge wire in order to install the required 220 outlet for the station."

    "Ron and his team did a wonderful job on my home. I needed to have an outlet and electrical line removed from a wall where we are going to replace a set of windows with a sliding door. Since I had them come out I had them quote adding a 50A circuit outside for a future hot tub and running a 120V-30A service for our travel trailer. They provided a reasonable quote and hired them for the job. Later I decided to also add some 110v outlets on the deck for lighting and for the grill, Ron was very responsive and reasonable with an updated quote. The project took a little longer than expected but completed an important part of the job, supplying power to the RV site. We had extended family members coming to stay with us and they used the trailer during their stay. They performed the work on a Saturday in the tremendous heat and high humidity. The team returned after the weekend and completed the rest of the work. The team was very professional and kept everything clean as they went about their work. I will have them come back again after we purchase our hut tub so they can wire the service. Thanks again to Ron and his team for the great work."

    "I called Heritage because I am a new homeowner and my central A/C was blowing lukewarm air. I've seen the ads on TV for Heritage and online reviews looked good. I don't know any handymen, and I wanted someone I could trust. The Heritage rep was friendly and professional on the phone, and had a tech out to me in an hour. The tech called to let me know when he would be arriving, and he was on time. The tech, Mark, was friendly and professional, and knew his stuff. He explained things to me in an easy-to-understand fashion, and he presented me with all my repair options and the associated cost so I could make an informed decision. He was never pushy at all. He showed me exactly where the problems were, and explained what it would take to fix them. He had all the supplies he needed in his truck. He always put on shoe coverings before entering my home, so my carpets stayed clean. In the end, I decided it would be more cost effective to purchase a new central air conditioning unit, and Mark was able to quickly coordinate with the office to have a tech come out same day to discuss my options with me. This was my first time doing business with Heritage, and I am very impressed. I have signed up for their Home Advantage plan, which is basically like AAA, but for your house instead of your car. There is a low monthly cost, and I get free yearly cleanings of my furnace and A/C, 10% off all services, no emergency fees, and $500 off the install of a new furnace or A/C. I like having that peace of mind knowing professionals are helping to keep my home well-maintained. So far, I highly recommend Heritage!"

    "Extremely knowledgeable both in his primary area of expertise (electrical) but also has some keen insights and advice on other home maintenance items as they relate to electrical installations. Definitely worth listening to and I will be hiring him again for additional work. His whole approach is "I do the work as if it was my own home". So, if you care about your home and having the work done right, then you can't ask for better than that."

How much do electricians typically cost?

  • Merrimack, New Hampshire Average
    $388
  • Typical Range
    $166 - $547
  • Low End - High End
    $85 - $1,300

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.
