Service Pros

    Grimm's Electrical Services Logo
    Norwalk, CT·

    Electrical

    "Everybody seems to have a sad and frustrating story of the electrician who either never follows up. is impossible to reach or just disappears. THOMAS GRIMM is the most reliable electrician I've ever hired. He shows up when he is scheduled to show up and the work always gets done and gets done well. And he's very straightforward and honest as a businessman. His estimates are accurate. And when I asked for a needlessly expensive solution to a simple problem due to my own ignorance, he explained how that spending was not necessary. Can't go wrong with Grimm's Electrical."

    "I am very pleased with the excellent quality of the work by Mikell Electric. Spencer installed a new fuse box, outside fixtures plus wiring. He was courteous, respectful and prompt. He took the time to explain the process, timeframe and answered all of my questions. I have already had him back again for another electrical project."

He was very efficient, personable and down to earth. In addition, his prices were very reasonable.

Even though the mounting instructions from the Wallbox manufacturer were scant and confusing he figured it out and did a perfect job.

    "I hired Wes to install data and voice wiring terminated at patch panels for my new business. The project was in a very old building which presented challenges for the other vendors who quoted on the job, but not for Wes. He knew exactly what to do and the finished project is neat, orderly and very professional. In addition, Wes provides 5+ Star customer service and great value for the services performed. You can't go wrong with Wave Sound and Security, highly recommended."

    Electrical

    "Jason was very professional and polite, offered a fair price, quickly returned phone calls and completed the whole project within a week. He was able to find a solution to run a line from the garage electrical panel to the second floor bathroom on the other side of the house without a need to run a cable outside the house - all other electricians proposed a solution which would expose part of the cable in PVC pipe outside. This solution involves exterior walls penetration and aesthetically would not be very attractive. He also installed a new ceiling fixture which required rewiring of the existing wall outlet and wired and installed new recessed lights in the kitchen. Definitely will use Kenney Electrical again for other electrical projects."

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

How much do electricians typically cost?

  • Stamford, Connecticut Average
    $306
  • Typical Range
    $166 - $472
  • Low End - High End
    $100 - $900

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.
