    "John is a gentleman; kept his promises. so far so good. Of course, he just completed the installation. It will take some additional time to confirm that my computer installation will work in the future and John's promises to assist will be realized. At this time, I am quite happy with his work. I will revisit this assessment in the future. Barry Ravech"

    "Lisa and apprentice arrived early and got right to work. The job was not as straight forward as I had believed. After much study, Lisa developed a plan and executed it to perfection. There was excellent team work and no wasted effort or time. The result was great and even though they used contractor supplied parts, they honored their original price. At the end, they thoroughly tested their installation and did a great job in cleaning the area. A light fixture had been dropped and they volunteered to replace it if there was any problem with it (there wasn't). Overall, I was very satisfied with all aspects of this job."

    "Tendai Furusa was prompt, professional, and courteous. His troubleshooting, diagnosis and repair of our emergency lighting is expertiseour emergency lighting system is running and working properly! Initially, we had what we thought to be a reputable electrical company replace our old emergency lighting with a new one; but, their lack of expertise was clear as the end results were that the new system they had installed was not working due to improper wiring. We are so pleased with Tendai Furusas expertise and professionalism that we consider our meeting him today as the beginning of a new business relationship, and an invitation for his company to be referenced as our main point-of-contact for all of our electrical needs. It was a pleasure doing business with Tendai Furusa, and we will gladly enlist his services in the future for any electrical needs, and highly recommend him to others. Thank you ServiceMagic for another great match, and we look forward to working with you again in the future as well!"

    "John, Durval, and Liam, along with Ed who had come the week before to assess the situation and make recommendations, all showed on time for what was expected to be an all-day job. I went out about an hour after they started and returned 6 hours later to find that the job was already complete -- a few hours early. Honestly, it was incredible. And to boot, the job came in several hundred dollars less lthan the original estimate, even though there was an additional, unexpected aspect that needed doing. Overall I am totally satisfied and would hire Mister Sparky again in a heartbeat."

    "German reserved time to install the microwave on the day it was scheduled for delivery and arrived just two hours after the delivery. He knew exactly how to remove and replace the units. He worked quickly, tested the new unit, cleaned the work area and took away the old unit. As a licensed electrician, he also installed a lower amperage circuit breaker for an electric stove which was to be installed shortly. German was delightful to have in our home."

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.
