    "Mr. Dave Burton and his crew did an awesome job helping me convert decade old/outdated panel in my basement, to a new up-to-code panel above ground, as well as adding two 220v 50a/30a Receptacles for my new Induction Cooktop and my EV Charger. They also fixed a few fire-hazard inducing temporary junctions, exposed wires, and installed 120v GFCI receptacle in basement for new Dehumidifier. The price is reasonable and the job is well done! They even helped me label all the switches to the locations in the house on the new panel!"

    "We hired Ken of North Crest LLC to upgrade our electrical panel and install a new outlet. In the process, he discovered that we still had some dangerous old knob-and-tube wiring. So he checked and replaced multiple outlets, rewired a ceiling fan, and installed 2 replacement light fixtures. Thank you so much, Ken, for making our old house safer! We plan to hire Ken again to upgrade our kitchen and bathroom. Would gladly recommend him to anyone!"

    "JR was not only efficient in responding and fixing my electrical problems but also did not take advantage of my situation by over charging. I had contacted a few other companies and one of them never even called me back and the other one made an appointment with me and then didnâ t show. We put our house on the market and needed some last minute electrical work done before the inspection. JR came to the house the very next day, had the outlet fixed in no time and barely charged us. Then, the day before we were scheduled to move out of state a light bulb burned out in our vaulted ceiling! So, I ran to Loweâ s and bought an extended pole gripper but damaged the recessed downlight! JR Returned to our vacant house and not only did he fix it, he also changed a lightbulb in our entryway chandelier that we couldnâ t reach. Let me just say he was very generous by not charging us for that visit! I would recommend him and his company to anybody who needed electrical work done."

    "I recently had MDL Electric install a 14 kw Generac automatic standby generator for my home. I chose MDL after talking with three other companies. MDL did the entire job professionally. They obtained all of the permits from Parsippany Town Hall, did the installation in a professional manner, and arranged for all of the final inspections. They installed the gas lines needed along with all electrical work. The other companies wanted me to find my own gas line installer and get all permits. The job was especially difficult since the gas and electrical box was on the opposite sides of the house. Two of the other companies had no idea where to put the generator-one had me tearing up the driveway. I would recommend MDL for electrical work anytime ( they did some other work in addition to the generator)."

    "The electrician did a great job installing my ceiling lamp. The original lamp that came with my condo had to be removed, and it had been hung too close to the wall, so it was "off center". The electrician made a new hole in the ceiling after carefully figuring out how far to move it over. He also patched the previous hole in the ceiling. Then he hung up my stained glass lamp. I am so happy with the great job he did. It looks beautiful. I would highly recommend his services to everyone. A. Richerson"

    "We initially contacted Gomez Vision Construction to install our bathroom countertops. We talked to Jorge for first consultation and estimate. We were so impressed by Jorge's knowledge about the work scope, so we discussed other projects with him and we really liked his proposals. We ended up signed a contract with him for doing our countertops for not only bathrooms but also for the kitchen, as well as the installation of bathroom tile floors and toilets. He quoted us a very competitive price, we initially was a little skeptical about their quality of works, but was really impressed once his crew started working on the projects. They arrive on promised time, work long hours each day, and paid close attention into details, and finished each projects on time without sacrificing quality of work. Both me and my wife feel that we made a right decision to hire them and decided to give them more work (installation of garage door opener, installation of chandelier, update our electric system, replace our sump pumps....). We feel that we will have long term working relationship with this company for future home improvement projects because they are very trustworthy, reliable, and honest."

    "Brian was extremely professional. He called ahead, and arrived on time for the scheduled estimate walk-thru. He took notes for each of the different fixtures I wanted added in each location, and reviewed them with me at the end of the meeting. He got back to me in less than a week with a fair estimate for the complete job. We hired him for the work, and he scheduled the appointment within two weeks of the initial meeting. He arrived on time the day of the appointment, and had all the equipment and tools needed for the job. My job site needed a little bit of everything, exterior flood lights on the soffits, a new circuit for the bedroom AC, and a new install of a hanging pendant chandelier. Brian and his assistant did all the work in less than 6 hours and were true to their original estimate with no surprises or overages. Brian did a walk-thru with me at the end of the job, and the quality of the work was flawless. I had spoken with two other contractors for the same work and they were unresponsive and difficult to coordinate with. I gave Brian 5 stars across the board because there were no shenanigans, he was prompt, accessible and very professional. I would not hesitate to recommend Brian and his company for any electrical work in the future."

How much do electricians typically cost?

  • Wayne, New Jersey Average
    $391
  • Typical Range
    $174 - $588
  • Low End - High End
    $100 - $1,200

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.
