    "Terry was fantastic! He was very friendly and did a great job replacing recessed lights for us as well as installing keypad lock. I’ll definitely be using Candido Electric for any future electrical work needed."

    "I will be hiring Making Power Moves again for future jobs. We’ve hired several electricians to get the job done with no success. CHAGO and his crew came and got the job done in No Time. Excellent electrician."

    "I was very pleased with the cleaning, sanding and staining of our back deck. There was some additional carpentry needed- wood plank replacement and some finish work around the skirt. The work was top notch. Everyone who came worked hard and very neat. I would highly recommend Mike and the team to anyone and will consider hiring them again when we are ready for another project."

    "Yes I would highly recommend the services of Infinite Electrical services, They should up on time and was able to replace my Meter Pan without any complication, Literally took him about two hours to complete and the price was reasonable, considering this was an emergency. I was quoted 3x the price by other another electrician an was told due to the Holiday he would not be able to replace until after the Memorial day weekend. The fact is that more people should run their business like Armin the owner. Really cared about getting my power restored and asked if their are any other concerns I may have. I not only recommend Infinite, but plan to use him on a couple of remodeling projects I have around the house. Once again, Thank you Infinite for making this Emergency feel like not an Emergency at all!!!"

    "Very responsive business and communicated every step of the way. From what he diagnosed I had a bad wire in the ceiling of the garage that shut my breaker off and wouldnâ t reset. I had no lights or plugs in the basement for days as I tried to figure it out myself. He came in and was easily able to diagnose, fix, and get it all back up minus the one plug that relies on the one dead wire. Iâ ll be putting that in since Iâ m taking my ceiling down anyways. He has all the experience needed and professionalism a master electrician is. Definitely will hire again and will recommend to anyone who needs an electrician."

But also rewired mi bathroom and children's room. I was not charged a ridiculous amount or with any issues after the installation."

    "Setting up a car charger wall box can become complicated. However, Harold, owner of the business, did it to perfection in no time. Even though the mounting instructions from the Wallbox manufacturer were scant and confusing he figured it out and did a perfect job. A true professional indeed, very personable and reliable at a reasonable price."

    "If you are looking for a true professional electrician look no further. My experience from the first phone call to the end of the service was great. I needed to have a ceiling fan replaced with a light fixture, also I was having a problem with some lighting flickering on & off. I explained this to Nick Vallone during that first phone call; he advised me of what the work would entail as well as approximating the cost, providing me with what his rates are. We set up the date & time; he called the day prior to confirm the appointment and arrived right on time. Once he arrived, he went right to work along with his assistant. They completed the work promptly & professionally; I was completely satisfied. The fan was replaced & I was glad it was only a wall socket that needed replacing to correct the flickering lights. His estimate on the cost was spot on."

    "Rob and Dan came out to my home promptly to discuss the job and gave me an estimate at that time. Dan did the actual work a few days later, and was careful and did not rush and explained things as he worked. He also covered my washer and dryer to protect them when he installed a new ceiling fixture, and used his own vacuum to clean afterwards. Dan was so neat you'd never know I had any work done in my home at all- except that I have 2 new fixtures which work perfectly. The amount charged for 4 hours of work was very reasonable, much more reasonable than 2 other local electricians I've hired in the past. I will definitely call Cassella Electric for any electrical work I may need in the future."

    "I strongly recommend Eddie and his team to handle your electrical and lighting needs. I hired Eddie to install eight 4 inch LED high-hats in my living room in Westport CT. My house is a bit older (1960s), but Eddie had no trouble whatsoever in wiring the lights to my existing light switch in the wall. He was done in about 90 minutes and the room looks amazing. He took extra care not to leave a mess and brought protective equipment for the floors and furniture. He is very responsive, professional, and his prices cannot be beat! Fantastic."

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.
