    "Jim was the first to answer my call of request. I normally do not go with the very first person of hire concerning work done on my home. He called each morning for accurate scheduling and showed up on time. When Jim arrived I found him to be a politely warm and friendly businessman. I found Jim to be an experienced electrician, knowledgeable and informative. He understood right away what was needed to get the job done and did it well. I would recommend Jim to anyone needing an experienced electrician to get the job done efficiently. Jim went out of his way to do a complete and exceptional job for me in installing electrical outdoor lights to my detached garage. I'm pleased with the way he neatly positioned the wiring, etcquickly and accuratelyprofessionally well done. At one point, I was indecisive concerning the actual light fixtureswasn't exactly sure what I wanted. He was patient and helped me to decide. Again, I'm well pleased. I will certainly call on Jim in the near future for electrical work that needs installation and/or repair.. Thanks much Jim for a job well done. Peggy Randolph"

    "Eric our technician did a great job - professional and capable. When our microwave didn't look just right after initial install, he took the time to adjust the bracket and get it lined up just right. In addition, he took a few minutes to fix an outlet that our previous electrician had left unusable - the plug wasn't secured so if you tried to plug something in, the plug went into the wall. He also cleaned up after himself - both materials and dust. We will hire this company again."

    "We are very pleased with the EV charger installation. Justen took his time assessing the project and provided us all the information we need and what to expect. He was able to do the project efficiently the following day. He also did all the aftercare/ cleaning. I will hire him again for our electrical needs. He also gave a good price for high quality work."

    "Mr. Reed did an excellent job installing my new light fixture. He also tightened the faucet on my kitchen sink. I would definitely recommend him for repairs/installations. He was timely, friendly, and easy to communicate with via phone/email. In addition, the cost of his service was very reasonable."

    "Aris Tasho contacted me within a day of when I posted the job on Home Advisor and he was able to come out to give me an estimate the same day. He was on time for the estimate and scheduled the work within 3 days. He was on time to install my lighting fixtures and installed the lights in about 5 hours. He was very polite, neat, and did an excellent job installing the fixtures. I thought the price was fair. I would highly recommend Tasho Electric!"

    "Brian & the crew did an outstanding job! They repaired and refinished our hardwood floor, converted 2 flights of carpeted stairs into hardwood stairs, and converted our entire 2nd floor from carpeting to LVP. Brian also created a custom butcher block top for our kitchen island and got all of our lighting updated. Brian & team were highly efficient, knowledgeable, and they were flexible with scheduling. When I was indecisive about things, Brian was helpful with offering different suggestions and coming up with creative solutions. Everything turned out great and we will hire him again for our future projects."

    "We hired Parker Electric to install several new LED canned lights into our existing kitchen as well as retrofit some old cans and have a island fixture and remove old fixtures. Brian, the owner, contacted me within an hour of my HomeAdvisor submittal to review my needs and provided a very competitive written quote soon after. Once hired, we scheduled the work a few days later. David, his master recessed can electrician, arrived for the apportionment and reviewed the job, provided expert advice on the layout, and then proceeded to complete the job quickly and on budget. This included correcting some previous non code junction box issue he found without charging me extra to correct. Both David and Brian were professional, courteous and sought my input when any question came up. I would say they wanted to make sure I was extremely happy with the job before considering it completed. I would not hesitate to call Parker Electric for any further electrical work and would highly recommend you give them a chance to bid your project!! The difference with Parker is they will help you with suggestions to your project instead of just doing the work. It was a real pleasure doing business with them."

    "We have used Cordial Electric for many projects over the years. 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."

    "Lots to say about this truly stand-up contractor. I'll start with how quickly Frank responded to my call, and his assistant John came out that same day. John came by and looked at multiple issues that we have (I mean HAD!) inside and outside, big and small. These guys are the fourth contract electricians we've used over the last three years, and they're the only ones who not only figured out the problem, but had it fixed within an hour. Then fixed two small issues within another 10 minutes. They don't nickle and dime, and they don't mess around when it comes to finding and fixing problems. The other contractors either didn't fix the problem, mis-diagnosed the problem, or never returned my calls for a follow-up visit. I don't care to share how much time and money we have wasted, but I can say that I HAVE FINALLY FOUND MY ELECTRICIANS. Now if I could just find a plumber and carpenter."

    "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."

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."

    "We've been using this company for at least last 5-6 years to do the annual service checkup of our Generac Generator. Thankfully, due to their service, we've not needed any repairs. Joe also advised me & corrected an error in the original installation of the generator by hoisting it and putting a level base under it so I'll get better & longer service out if it. They're also great with contacting me each year to set up service & are very accommodating to my work schedule. Great, reliable company. Will continue to use them."

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.
