    "I highly recommend Paul Chase. Scheduling the job was painless and he was available the following week. He is knowledgeable, friendly, kind, and on-time. His price is very reasonable. He installed recessed lights and light pendant fixtures in the kitchen which was well done. He also patched up a left over hole where another fixture was removed which some electricians really don't do. I will be hiring him if he is available for all my future electrician needs."

    "Gio an Darren were assigned to install a new boiler and hot water unit. I was very happy with the level of professionalism of the service techs. Gio and Darren were very knowledgeable and were able to remove and replace a very old boiler and install the new system. The whole process did take longer that we expected, but I did not feel this was due to the technicians. I was very happy with the installation. They kept me informed as they worked and the basement was cleaned up before they left each day. They were here for very long days and they worked hard at all times. Dom was assigned to resolve an issue after we had a new boiler installed but had a problem with one of the radiators not getting proper heat. He was very professional and friendly. He understood the problem and was able to resolve it very quickly. He was very careful and neat in the house as he went about the work. He explained what he did and made sure I was satisfied with the results. I was very pleased with the service call."

    "John, Durval, and Liam, along with Ed who had come the week before to assess the situation and make recommendations, all showed on time for what was expected to be an all-day job. I went out about an hour after they started and returned 6 hours later to find that the job was already complete -- a few hours early. Honestly, it was incredible. And to boot, the job came in several hundred dollars less lthan the original estimate, even though there was an additional, unexpected aspect that needed doing. Overall I am totally satisfied and would hire Mister Sparky again in a heartbeat."

    "Ron and his team did a wonderful job on my home. I needed to have an outlet and electrical line removed from a wall where we are going to replace a set of windows with a sliding door. Since I had them come out I had them quote adding a 50A circuit outside for a future hot tub and running a 120V-30A service for our travel trailer. They provided a reasonable quote and hired them for the job. Later I decided to also add some 110v outlets on the deck for lighting and for the grill, Ron was very responsive and reasonable with an updated quote. The project took a little longer than expected but completed an important part of the job, supplying power to the RV site. We had extended family members coming to stay with us and they used the trailer during their stay. They performed the work on a Saturday in the tremendous heat and high humidity. The team returned after the weekend and completed the rest of the work. The team was very professional and kept everything clean as they went about their work. I will have them come back again after we purchase our hut tub so they can wire the service. Thanks again to Ron and his team for the great work."

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.
