    "Bobo Electric is fantastic. I had them come out to check some outlets last year and they charged a very fair price. At that time, I knew I would be needing a few more projects done in the near future, so I emailed them recently to get a price quote. They responded promptly to all of my questions. On the day they came out, they called before to let me know they were on their way. They arrived on time. I was having 2 bedroom ceiling fans replaced, a ceiling fan installed in the living room, an outdoor light fixture replaced, and a Ring doorbell installed. The crew of 3 workers had this completed in about 2 and a half hours, and that is even with some difficulty we encountered with the doorbell (not their fault). They cleaned up when finished (one worker even went into the closet to find a broom!) and worked efficiently. On top of that, they were all pleasant and chatted with me a bit. The price was more than reasonable for the quality work they did. I plan on using Bobo Electric again for future projects. If you have electrical work that needs to be done, go with these guys. You wont be disappointed."

The technician who came out was friendly, knowledgeable, and got the job done quickly. Plus, their pricing was fair and transparent. I'll definitely be recommending them to friends and family!"

They have completely rewired our basement, replaced our circuit breaker box, replaced old outlets with new, and fixed outdoor lighting. They are always professional, on time, no-nonsense on the job site. Their prices are competitive and I would never use another electrician than Cordial Electric. You will not be disappointed."

    "I used Fixer to replace a light fixture in my dining room. I have a very old building (over 100 years old) and always have issues with new electric fixtures, but Ricardo was great -- he figured out how to make it work using the existing junction box that I had and did it in a very timely manner. He was also very friendly and kept me updated on the progress. The light looks great and I'm very happy. Fixer seems more expensive on an hourly basis, but actually I probably would have been charged more if I went with a flat fee charge from someone else."

    "Alex was one of the first places I called and he was really helpful in my EV Charger install. We live in the city and share a parking garage with other units, so things felt like the might get complicated. He was able to walk us through the process, the cost, and had a great timeline for everything to be done. Would recommend you work with Alex to install an EV Charger, he's knowledge, has done a lot of these, and will help answer your questions however he can."

He was here for about 2 1/2 hrs. at an amazing low cost to me. He even installed a switch that was bad that I didn't know about for it has been in there for many years."

    "I cannot say enough good things about Abraham and his team. They were indispensible during a challenging and stressful move. Not only did they do a superb job of installing a ceiling fan to an 18ft ceiling, multiple patch repairs, seamlessly replacing and installing bathroom extractor fans that into non standard sized spaces, filling countless nail holes and repainting, and reattaching a dislodged dishwasher, Abraham did all of this amidst the chaos of a move and made MULTIPLE trips to Home Depot to color match paints when I provided the wrong cans. He was patient, thorough, and went WAY above and beyond any expectations in both service, execution, and generosity. If you have anything you need done in your home, make these guys your first call!"

    "Working with Fabian was the most pleasant experience of our project to date. Although he was initially brought in as a sub-contractor, we chose to contract with him directly because he was honest and more forthcoming than the GC overseeing our project. He takes pride in his work and you can be assured of such because he makes sure he explains what needs to be done according to current codes and provides a reasonable warranty for the services he executes. Fabian has an incredible work ethic, coming prepared to work after our consultation and even asking to stay a little later to complete tasks on his first day. Additionally, he puts the customer first, ensuring the safety of your home from beginning to completion. If only more contractors existed like him, our homes would be more secure. What began as a nightmare with the GC, worked out better than we could have asked. Very grateful for his humility and honesty. Continued growth and success with your business!"

He gave me a quote within hours! It took a few days for the others to call. I needed to run a 1" IMC Rigid Conduit to the garage for a 50 amp/220 volt car charger. I also had him upgrade the indoor/outdoor outlets to 20 amps/110 volts, install new lights and ground/bond everything to code. He took care of the permit and inspection as well. Fidel is a great person and I highly recommend Gold Star Electric!"

Enrique came out within the hour to assess my problem. During his observation we also agreed for him to fix 2 other electrical issues. Enrique purchased what was needed. He replaced the light fixtures in a timely manner and did an excellent job. The cost for the entire project was very reasonable for my budget. Enrique provided excellent customer service. He is a calm, polite, customer friendly, task focused & a knowledgeable young man. I plan & hope to connect with Enrique for my other electrical projects."

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.
