    "I was very pleased with the cleaning, sanding and staining of our back deck. There was some additional carpentry needed- wood plank replacement and some finish work around the skirt. The work was top notch. Everyone who came worked hard and very neat. I would highly recommend Mike and the team to anyone and will consider hiring them again when we are ready for another project."

    "Wow! I couldn't be more thankful. If you are looking for an electrician. Look no further! He is truly amazing and very professional. He not only set up my chandelier and kitchen light. But also rewired mi bathroom and children's room. I was not charged a ridiculous amount or with any issues after the installation."

    "It was a pleasure to deal with this company. They are extremely knowledgeable in designing an electrical charging station in what was a difficult i situation. My breaker panel and garage were on opposite sides of my home. A solution was given at a reasonable price. I could not be happier. All work was done professionally with great attention to detail. If you are in need of electrical services, donâ t look any further. They are without a doubt, the best."

    "If you are looking for a true professional electrician look no further. My experience from the first phone call to the end of the service was great. I needed to have a ceiling fan replaced with a light fixture, also I was having a problem with some lighting flickering on & off. I explained this to Nick Vallone during that first phone call; he advised me of what the work would entail as well as approximating the cost, providing me with what his rates are. We set up the date & time; he called the day prior to confirm the appointment and arrived right on time. Once he arrived, he went right to work along with his assistant. They completed the work promptly & professionally; I was completely satisfied. The fan was replaced & I was glad it was only a wall socket that needed replacing to correct the flickering lights. His estimate on the cost was spot on."

    "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."

    "Tom and Saul did excellent work on my home. Tom responded very quickly, was always easy to reach, gave fair prices, and was very patient working through all the details. We had a lot of work we wanted done on our new home and he spent hours with us before any guarantee of even getting the job! He even suggested an improvement we could do ourselves. They added recessed LED (wafer) lighting and under-cabinet LED light tape with dimmers to our kitchen, installed a ceiling fan in a bedroom, upgraded outlets (tamper-resistant, GFCI), fixed some funky wiring with switches and outlets, added a 3-way switch, upgraded dimmer switches, upgraded outdoor motion sensor lights and more! They both cared about the quality of their work, taking pride in a job well done... and were very friendly to boot."

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.
