    "I had 8 outside fixtures that had been put in without electrical boxes - just holes in the siding with wires coming through. I wanted to replace the fixtures but could not without the boxes. AWT put the boxes in and replaced the fixtures, all for a very reasonable price."

    "I hired Wes to install data and voice wiring terminated at patch panels for my new business. The project was in a very old building which presented challenges for the other vendors who quoted on the job, but not for Wes. He knew exactly what to do and the finished project is neat, orderly and very professional. In addition, Wes provides 5+ Star customer service and great value for the services performed. You can't go wrong with Wave Sound and Security, highly recommended."

    "Ask for Todd. The person who arrives to do the job will also represent the true nature of the organization which no website or Facebook page can really do. It's the human experience that sets the standard. Todd was exactly on time: he was professional, courteous and wasted no time fixing my bathroon faucets. He was personable and efficient. My first call to the company was also a good experience -- the person who answered was friendly, upbeat and wasted no time scheduling the job. I was surprised to discover they offered much than plumbing services and could easily expand my usage of this company."

My breaker panel and garage were on opposite sides of my home. A solution was given at a reasonable price. I could not be happier. All work was done professionally with great attention to detail.

    "I have used Supreme Electric for a variety of electrical services for over 2 years â replacing outlets to support new wall A/C units, replacing a damaged outlet, replacing a light fixture, upgrading my circuit panel and most recently installing a bathroom ventilation fan another electrician said could not be done. I was also provided assistance finding a carpenter to vent the fan out of my attic and I am considering future installation of a generator. Michael is always pleasant, professional and respectful and the quality of work is excellent. He explains exactly what is needed, prices are reasonable, he communicates clearly and promptly as work is being planned and he is always on time for scheduled work. I highly recommend Supreme Electric. It is always a pleasure to work with Michael and I personally will only be using Supreme Electric for any future electrical work I need to have done. Thank you Michael!!"

    "Chris Wells is competent, prompt and courteous. He returns phone calls quickly and presents himself very professionally. We've had a number of electrical contractors work for us; Chris will be invited back. He was flexible with his schedule and adapted to our desires. He ensured that he pulled a permit and set-up the follow-up inspection at a time that was mutually agreeable to us, the inspector and he, himself. Chris anticipated our needs for future power needs and even designed the layout so that it would best accommodate our needs in the shop; with the ability to upgrade, easily, in the future. He arrived with all the materials he would need to finish the job and didn't malinger at any time during the day. Chris' billing practices are completely transparent. There are no hidden fees, or surprises. His pricing is competitive and not outrageous. He'll complete the job on time and on budget. I would like for him to work for me, but he's doing great on his own."

How much do electricians typically cost?

    $347
  • Typical Range
    $217 - $598

    $100 - $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.
