    Electrical Troubleshooting

    "Tony uncovered some major problems with my electrical panels and needed to repair them before he could start the other projects I had contacted him for. He and Nate also had the challenge of working with my thick plaster walls and ceilings. They made my house safe and were also able to complete install of a bathroom ventilation fan that vented through my attic to outside wall, install of a light fixture for a dark hallway, replace a motion detector light on my garage, install a GFI outlet in my bathroom, install a 220 outlet for my dryer (which required running wiring under the house) and switch out a light fixture in my dining room."

    "Yerem came in and assessed the situation before starting the work. The wiring on my doorbell was complicated and he rewired the old line and installed new voltage line with transformer. Once installed he tested the doorbell and it works with security cameras working in place. Also I have fluorescent lamps in my kitchen where the ballast needed replacing. He replaced this and switched out old lights for new. All is working in perfect condition. He did an excellent job!"

    "Bill with Precision Remodeling was great to work with, very pleasant and informative, willing to answer all questions and concerns, and stayed on top of the project from start to finish. He and his team did a great job at an extremely competitive price. I would and have recommended Precision Remodeling to friends and family, and they have had similar experiences and good quality installations without issues. For context, my project was a new solar panel installation, higher amp electrical panel installation, and electric car charging outlets. The job was done perfectly."

    "Got electrical needs? I strongly recommend that you call this company for a quote at least. Amit the owner and his crew are polite, professional and reliable. After other electricians were quoting me ridiculous prices to install under cabinet lighting, Amit stopped by, gave me a reasonable price and even performed my lighting installation that same day. Lights were working well until I found a faulty switch which had nothing to do with their installation. But Amit sent someone from his crew on another day and kindly fixed the problem switch, no charge. Thank you PHEC!"

It took him all but a few minutes to replace the light socket and that includes going to his car to get the part, a part I did not have to supply. Finally, Rob was very personable. I will use his service again."

    "I recently had Narek install a Tesla wall connector in my garage in Los Angeles, and I could 't be happier with the service I received. Narek was not only professional and knowledgeable, but he also got the permit required for the installation very quickly. He arrived on time and took the time to explain the installation process and answer any questions I had. The installation itself was done quickly and efficiently, and Narek made sure to clean up after himself once the job was complete. He also took the time to show me how to use the wall connector and ensure that it was working properly before he left. Overall, I would highly recommend Narek to anyone looking to install a Tesla wall connector. His professionalism, attention to detail, and expertise made the process easy and stress-free, and I am thrilled to now have a reliable and efficient way to charge my electric vehicle at home."

How much do electricians typically cost?

  • Pasadena, California Average
    $385
  • Typical Range
    $192 - $609
  • Low End - High End
    $95 - $1,200

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.
