    "Project: Repaired burnt wall outlet, removed 2 security cameras and replaced one of them with another and repaired a broken light fixture. The owner responded right away and gave us a quote.

    "Carlos was incredibly knowledgeable and knew exactly what to ask right from the start. After sending just one photo of my homeâ s electrical panel, he knew exactly what he needed to provide me with a cost estimate upfront. He walked me through options and let me know exactly what I needed to get the job done right, and the most cost effective. He arrived at my home along with his son when they said they would, and finished the job much faster than I anticipated. It came out perfect. It is extremely rare to find a trustworthy and upfront person in all fields of work. Iâ m so glad to have met Carlos. He is the embodiment of professionalism. Although I donâ t anticipate any needed electrical work, when I do, I will absolutely call him first."

    Grant W. in November 2023


    "Very professional. My lights and outlets werenâ t working on our recently purchased home. The bathroom and kitchen lights werenâ t working due to a bad breaker. Uriel came out and was able to repair and fix the issues with speed. Will definitely use again."

    "My technician (Eniko) was very thorough, he began with asking me what my expectations and needs were for my project and moved on with inspection of the area where I needed service. He explained what could be done and and where my security camera could be placed for optimal access and use. I will be contracting him for future electrical reworking of my home."

    "David and his crew did a fantastic job on several of our projects. We did a panel upgrade, outlets were fixed and/changed out, converted unsafe wiring and created housing for exposed wires outdoors, installed dimmer lights. David went the extra step mile and did other safety checks without us asking him and he did not try to up sell anything. They were professional, reliable, and thorough in their assessments and work. Panel was an easy pass with the City. Extremely happy with their service and highly recommend them."

    Pannel Upgrades, Solar Pannel Repair

    "Austin Van Sant knows his business. We had him take our solar panels off our roof as we had to have our roof repaired. Once that job was completed, Austin reinstalled our solar panels using a better footing installation that attaches to the rafters, thereby not having to cut any tiles (as the previous company Horizen Solar did, which caused roof leaks). He also applied a bird mesh to the bottom of the solar panels to prohibit birds from making nests. He is extremely knowledgeable, reliable, and conscientious. I highly recommend Austin Van Sant and his partner Louie. They work fast, are light footed, and are very congenial. We are very pleased with their performance."

    "Kevin did a fantastic job. I had a row of fluorescent lights in my garage pull out of the ceiling and crash down to the floor due to improper installation by the previous owners of my house that was also not up to code. Kevin was able to come out the next day, bring the wiring up to code, and install two new LED lights at a very reasonable cost and with no surcharge for doing an emergency repair. I would recommend him highly and will be using him for future electrical projects."

    Electrical Panel, Electrical Wiring or Panel Upgrade - For Business

    "I have about 5 other electrical projects. They will be Todd's. He was able to do ours as a first appt, 7 AM. He ran a few minutes late, but texted me to let me know and arrived within the adjusted time frame (15 minutes late). He had one helper. The room is completely furnished. They carefully moved what needed to be moved to give themselves workspace, covered any furniture that may have gotten any debris (had to cut into the drywall), covered the flooring (carpet). They were fast, no dilly dallying, they were clean, they left nothing for me to clean up. The ceiling fan placement is perfect. Todd suggested GAF outlets which cost a little more by a few dollars. He installed 5 outlets, ceiling fan, and wall switch. Will use him again, room by room to get this old house up to speed. Looking forward to him removing old wall exposed electrical coil heaters and replacing those with new heating elements and ceiling vents. Excellent work. Both young men were pleasant, courteous. And oh, I was working from home that morning, the drill was even quiet!! Pleasure doing business with them. I thought the price a tad high, but you get what you pay for. I will pay it again . They are worth any extra."

How much do electricians typically cost?

  • San Bernardino, California Average
  • Typical Range
    $164 - $421

    $80 - $850

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.
