You were promt, finished early, cleaned up after your work and did a fantastic job (no holes in the ceiling, tile work flawless etc).

    "I cannot sing the praises of Ian and Power Forward enough! He is outstanding. The jobs he did for me were fixing a switch panel that was overheating, installing a new light fixture. replacing light bulbs on outdoor lights that are high up and installing timers for those outdoor lights. He showed up on time. He called to say he was on his way. He works very efficiently and is very clean. He was very respectful wearing a mask and wearing shoe covers. I called him back for an issue a month later that had nothing to do with what he did prior. It was a Saturday and he came right out for the issue. I was so surprised he was available on a Saturday. I will continue to use him for all my electrical needs and my family and friends will also be using him. He's fantastic!"

    Electrical Service Calls

    "This was my first time ever hiring a contractor from Home Advisor. I had a chandelier for my newly redecorated bedroom that was seemingly impossible to install. John kept in contact with me, arrived on time, and assured me that he was up to the task to get the job done! John and John, his assistant, were professional, courteous, friendly, trustworthy... and stopped at nothing to make what I thought was impossible.. possible. Words simply cannot express how happy I am that my light is safely attached to the ceiling. I highly recommend J.A.C Electric. These are GOOD guys! I will be sure to call them again as my need for a professional electrician arises."

    "Having just purchased a house, I wanted some small electrical work done: install a motion sensor front light, add outlets to the basement, repair one of the kitchen lights that wasn't working. Cayle came by to review the work with me and promptly e-mailed an estimate. He scheduled the work within a couple of weeks, adjusting his schedule to match mine. His worker, Kyle, arrived on time and completed all work to my satisfaction, checking each item and cleaning up completely. I am happy to know an electrician I can count on when I need service."

    "I am glad i hired them to do my fuse box to circuit breaker c0nversion. They\ dad and son team were professional. They were right on regarding my breaker location. It cannot be installed in thr boiler/furnace room because the clearance is not big enough. Another electrician said i could install it the boiler room. He was completely wrong. I am glad i went with West Electric. Otherwise the inspector would have fail the indpection if i had gone with the other electrician. My new circuit breaker box was conveniently located on the wall outside our bedroom and outside the boiler/furnace room. In addition they create a beautifully wooden frame where the circuit breaker box. The father and son team were polite, pleasant to work with. I would hure them the next time i need electical work done. This review is several years late."

    "Tom and Saul did excellent work on my home. Tom responded very quickly, was always easy to reach, gave fair prices, and was very patient working through all the details. We had a lot of work we wanted done on our new home and he spent hours with us before any guarantee of even getting the job! He even suggested an improvement we could do ourselves. They added recessed LED (wafer) lighting and under-cabinet LED light tape with dimmers to our kitchen, installed a ceiling fan in a bedroom, upgraded outlets (tamper-resistant, GFCI), fixed some funky wiring with switches and outlets, added a 3-way switch, upgraded dimmer switches, upgraded outdoor motion sensor lights and more! They both cared about the quality of their work, taking pride in a job well done... and were very friendly to boot."

    "The Masters Home Improvement company has done several jobs on our historic commercial building in downtown Madison. They are easy to reach and they come when they say they'll come. A vintage building has many quirks and sometimes repairs are complicated. They are resourceful problem solvers. Instead of saying that the only way to fix a problem is to buy all new components, they find a way to work with existing components, only buying new parts when necessary. Since they have in-house staff who can handle the work of a variety of trades there are no long waits for, say, an electrician to come. I highly recommend the The Masters Home Improvement company."

    "Adept electric was extremely easy to communicate with, beat our other quotes, was flexible with scheduling, and did an excellent job installing our new EV car charger. Our garage is located on the far side of our house from our electric panel, which we thought would be an issue, but Juan ran the wiring through interior and exterior of the house smoothly and out of sight. The hardwired car charger looks clean and sharp where Juan installed it and it works like a charm. Charging my EV has gone from 17 hours on a 110v outlet to just under 5.5 hours!"

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.
