    "I've been in the process of building what I consider to be the shop of my dreams for a few years now, and I reached the point where I needed a professional to help me design and install an electrical system to provide 115V and 220V service from the power pole, some 60 linear feet away, to the entire building. This included the main panel, all overhead lighting, under cabinet lighting, all wiring and switches, outlets necessary to supply my shop equipment and tools, and to provide me with heat and A/C. In addition, some exterior outlets were necessary to provide power to my carport and hook-ups for an RV. (I wasn't asking for much, Huh?!) After doing my homework, I called Jon Wayne. Jon Wayne's very impressive customer service representatives made an appointment for me expeditiously, and a short time later a young professional named Joshua R. [Consumer name withheld at their request] arrived at my door. Mr. R. [Consumer name withheld at their request] patiently allowed me to guide him through my vision for the shop, taking copious notes. I completed my lengthy and probably slightly whimsical explanations of how I thought I wanted my shop set up, and he actually took the time to go back over each line item in detail with me. He asked quite a few questions, and ensured that he fully understood exactly what I wanted to accomplish. He then drew out detailed diagrams and noted everything that would be required to complete each specific line item for me, giving me valuable input and making much appreciated suggestions for improvements in my plan along the way. When he was satisfied that I was absolutely satisfied, we sat down and he worked up a quote. At this point I was anticipating having heart failure, thinking that the cost would be somewhat inflated and he would ask that I pay some exotic and exorbitant prices for his services. I had done my homework well, and I was floored that his quote was within one hundred dollars of what I had determined that I should have to pay. That was surprising! Wow! Mr. R. [Consumer name withheld at their request] worked hand in hand with Jon Wayne's A/C folks to ensure that appropriate requirements for A/C and Heat were included in the overall project, and he worked exceptionally well with me throughout the entire process. I got the distinct impression that this was a collaborative effort that he seriously had a vested interest in, and not just another day's work. He presented me with ready solutions to issues that I ran into in accomplishing the project, including completely re-designing the power supply to the building from underground to overhead due to substantial rock preventing me from having a trench dug at a reasonable cost. I believe that the extreme courtesy, obvious caring, and passion for my project displayed by Mr. R. [Consumer name withheld at their request] and the entire Jon Wayne Team represents true professionalism at its highest level. I'm surely glad that I made that phone ca"

How much do electricians typically cost?

  • New Braunfels, Texas Average
    $313
  • Typical Range
    $177 - $505
  • Low End - High End
    $75 - $975

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.
