    "The Red Flow (Nurijon) only needed to see my space and have the project explained once. He worked with me and my other contractor for scheduling, costs, and absolutely nailed it. Incredible job from this man and he has won my business from here on out - no questions asked. He's a family guy who understands what time, money, and punctuality mean. Nurijon communicates well whether it was directly with me, my wife, or other contractor - he even entertained my son briefly! What a value add! I absolutely cannot stress how incredibly talented he is and he cleans up as if he were never there - fascinating approach. He's clean cut, well spoken, explains things in common lay person language and advises while consulting. I simply cannot wait for our future project this summer to have him back and install (3) ceiling fans and (12) LED flush mounted can-less light fixtures in my (3) bedrooms. His price are stable, fair, and above all else he's WITH YOU before, during, and after the process to ensure you feel taken care of and are satisfied with his work. DO NOT HESITATE TO HIRE THIS MAN! You will NOT regret it and it's the type of experience you will tell everyone about. I know I did. :)"

    Portable Generator Repair

    "Mr. Rick Wagner is a real expert. I had three so called experts in standby generator repairs and they could not make the unit operational, even though they replaced every part that they thought was the problem. After several trial and error efforts replacing several parts, they could not identify the problem and told me that the unit could not be repaired. The interesting thing was that they were supposedly trained experts on Briggs and Stratton generators. Their recommendation was to buy a new unit. Mr. Wagner not only identified the problem within an hour of coming and seeing the unit but after ordering the parts made the unit operational within two hours. I would highly recommend him. He is trustworthy, honest, hard working and very knowledgeable. A truly REAL EXPERT who knows his business. Stephen T. M."

    "We used Henelect for upgrading our electric service from 150amps to 200amps with a total panel replacement, as well as for the Juicebox 40 14-50 NEMA plug-in charger installation. Chris, his brother Ken and friend Clark did a fantastic professional job. They were extremely meticulous in labelling everything, replacing the circuits and wires with all new parts without being concerned about the added time and effort it took. They went above and beyond to install an outdoor rated NEMA outlet, assuring the appropriate GFCI requirements, following the right codes. They cleaned it up well with the patch work on walls. I highly recommend Henelect and these young, knowledgeable and professional electricians for any electrical work."

How much do electricians typically cost?

  • Trenton, New Jersey Average
  • Typical Range
    $213 - $618
  • Low End - High End
    $100 - $1,000

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.
