    "Gary (co-owner) was a real pleasure to work with. He was able to come out the same day I called to get a quote, and he arrived a few minutes early for his appointment to provide an estimate. After taking a good look at the areas that needed work, he told me he could do the work right then if I wanted it done. He removed a live, capped-off wire that used to go to our garage, and he fixed the outdoor plug where the wire had originated from. Then he diagnosed the problem with our ceiling fan wiring and fixed it quickly and thoroughly. Gary is personable, fast, has tons of experience in his field, and has reasonable prices. It is great to have a professional like him in the area. My husband and I will definitely call him the next time we need electrical work done."

Very reasonable price and work was done to our standards. Actually going to have them now follow up and rewire the detached garage. I highly recommend this company for any electrical issues."

    "Overall, I had a wonderful experience with Abacus. I had a leak in the shower in my master bathroom and needed to have it repaired quickly. The office staff was very friendly and worked to find me the earliest appointment possible. When Andres arrived, he was very courteous and professional and took the time to explain what it was he was going to do. We discovered that I needed a part that was difficult to locate, but the parts department was able to track it down and order it. When the part came in, Andres notified me and arranged to come in first thing the next morning to install it. The pricing was very reasonable and I would definitely recommend them to anyone. I do have plans to use their electrical services to install a new fixture in the house soon."

    "I purchased a home with a solar panel array, but it came with no records on maintenance or other pertinent information. I found Dustin through Angi and from our first phone call , I knew I had found the right guy to help. He requested some pictures of my setup and upon arrival for our appointment had more information about my array than I would have been able to find on my own. Additionally, he got my solar panel system setup for online monitoring so I will be able to check on the efficiency of my panels. This was not an easy task, but he spent the extra time to get this done. I highly recommend Dustin and truly appreciate how he helped me to better understand the solar array on my new home."

    "About a year ago (March 2017) contracted with Mister Sparky to perform electrical evaluation of my home, as was about to engage in significant upgrading to interior, and initially needed to know how many amps I could use for a new convection cooktop. And, there were a few other issues that had been on my list of things to have done that I wanted to have addressed. The lead electrician, Nina Cleverly (seen her in television ads for this company since then), not only evaluated that need, but did a complete safety evaluation of my 38-year old home. Needless to say, there were many issues that were out of compliance with codes. Nina evaluated all recommended work and presented a proposal. Decided to accept and they got the work all done that very same day! Two electricians came out to perform the work (Sean Simmons and Carnell Lambert), and they did a fabulous job on the large range of items to be addressed, including: whole house surge protector, breaker box replacement and rewiring, replace one ceiling recessed fixture, remove/replace shower light, GFCI outlets wherever needed, fire detection system, install new outdoor motion detection lights, replace one outdoor fixture, new outdoor electrical boxes, etc. They did a fantastic job on all these issues and completed in just one day. I know that my home is in excellent shape with respect to electrical issues. The electricians were all very personable and communicated well. It was a pleasure to do business with this company, and highly recommend them for anyone needing any kind of electrician required work."

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.
