    "Great work. Well worth it."

    Electrical Switches, Outlets & Fixtures - Install or Repair, Electrical Wiring or Panel Upgrade

    "I hired Bailey s Power and Light to run a crucial new circuit for a waste pump for my new septic system. This entailed adding a circuit to my panel and fishing a new wire run completely across the width of my home (in an incredibly difficult to access attic space). When we walked and reviewed his completed work, I could only explain how he accomplished it by calling it magic. He was polite, on-time, well-prepared, showed excellent skill, and worked very quickly. His rates are also very reasonable, I strongly recommend his services."

    Electrical for New Builds, Minor Electrical, Panel Upgrades

    "I purchased an older house that needed extensive electrical upgrades and sought out numerous quotes. Matt pricing is fair and highly competitive. I was immediately comfortable with Matt at this initial stage and found his suggestions helpful and reliable, especially ones that brought my house up to current code and I only regret not following his regarding a security system. In the process of doing my due diligence in obtaining quotes. My homeownerâ s insurance company dropped my coverage and my challenger electrical panel rendered my home uninsurable. I contacted Matt to schedule my electrical work, who while even out of the country returned my emails and scheduled my panel and service upgrade immediately upon his return My work was completed prior to the end of coverage and allowed me to insure my home. Matt took care of all the permitting and inspections. Matt and his crew where polite, friendly and professional at all times, even after coming out of an attic in August heat. The house was kept clean during and at the end of each work day over the two week process. Most importantly the interior lightning changed my cave-like environment into a bright and well-lit home. I am more than pleased with the work done. I have since referred ELM contracting to friends and family and I would do the same for anyone taking time to read this review."

    "Luminous contacted me right away and scheduled the quote and installation process in a very timely manner. I had new lighting fixtures, including chandelier, pendants, and ceiling fans installed in my new home. Kyle and Jesus were excellent! They were very professional, knowledgeable and not only did a great job, but cleaned up and removed all the boxes and packing material for all the fixtures. That was a huge help. Two practices I'd like to commend the company for: prior to the technicians' arrival they send a text alerting you that they are on their way. It includes the technician's picture and a little bio about him/her. It eases the safety concerns and is a nice touch. Lastly - kudos to Luminous for supporting community causes. Both techs arrived wearing Breast Cancer - American Cancer Society shirts. When I asked about it, they mentioned how the company support ACS and matches donations!"

    "Its really nice to meet a company that uphold honesty and integrity as their values. This company did an install on my property following a major remodel in 2011 and did a great job at a competitive price. Fast forward to 2019 and I have recently had some of my roof replaced and the roofers removed all the of lightning rods! I called John and he came straight out exactly when he had promised. We own a large property and it would have been easy for him to charge me for a full replacement system but instead John explained that it was a pretty easy fix and the charged me very little to take care of my problem. John also walked the other buildings and checked all OK while he was there. Folks , This guy is old school honest and in today's world that's a rare commodity. Overall a great business I would highly recommend. Thank you John"

    "John Sherlock and his wife Corrine called within 1/2 hour of looking for Lightning Rod installers. He was available and was over to talk with us within one hour. He sent all his credentials and licenses and insurance coverages of his business and they came over the next morning and completed the installation extremely fast. He gave a fantastic offer, and lifetime warranty coverage and will even come over and take down system when we replace the roof and place back up at no charge! His wife even saw some plants we had not put in the garden still sitting in containers, and offered and planted them in the spaces we wanted, just to help out. Very friendly, helpful, professional, extremely knowledgeable and even suggested adding Lakeland Electrics Surge Protector protection they provide to go along with the Lightning rods. Yes would have them again on any home anytime."

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.
