    "I had a wax-burning ceramic plug in burn out in the wall outlet. I woke up @ 4am & smelled something burning, I thought it was the space heater, so I pulled the plug from the wall. The smell seemed to abate; I looked up "electrician" in my area on Home Advisor & found Mr. Druhl's listing. He came to my house in a very short time, and checked the outlet - he said I was one very lucky person. The ceramic plug had burned behind cover. He replaced the wires and I now have a new outlet. BUT, the next morning, my daughter called in a panic, they had discovered a wall outlet was hot to the touch, and asked about Mr. Druhl, I gave her his phone number, and he responded to her house very quickly, and found the problem, and replaced the outlet. Mr., Druhl is a complete and total professional. This man is honorable and trustworthy."

    "They were on time and I felt safe with both men. They were very efficient and went right to work and did not waste time. No task was too small for them or demeaning. They were courteous and pleasant and very responsible men. Hope I did not insult anyone with my "honey do" list. I would definitely recommend them."

As soon as I was able to give him a few more details when it happened again, he knew right away what the problem was and it was fixed. He comes in a super timely manner, is super professional and a problem solver. I would continue to use him for future jobs and would recommend him to family and friends!"

    "In selling our home, when the home inspector came he knocked out four outlets and we reset all the GFI receptacles we were aware of but it did not fix our issue. The two technicians from this company did a thorough inspection of all our GFIs and finally found the one in the garage that the home inspector had tripped--it's appearance was different from all the other GFIs that my wife and I found and reset as needed--and once they reset it we were back in business. Great service from friendly technicians and will use this company again for any electrical needs."

    "I found Carlos searching the internet and his company trying to find someone to install a Starlink reciever up on the roof and run cable into our home. Carlos got back to me promptly, I sent him pictures of what we wanted to do, set a time up for him to come out. He came out, did the job, and both my wife and I are more than happy with the work he performed. Very reasonable rate in my opinion as well. Communication between us was excellent. Not certain what more you could ask for with a business. More than happy. It seems a lot of video audio stores do not want to touch you if thats not what you want them to do even though the scope of the work is similar with setting up a receiver and running cable. Carlos looked at the job per the pictures I sent him and said no problem."

    "John Sherlock and his wife Corrine called within 1/2 hour of looking for Lightning Rod installers. He was available and was over to talk with us within one hour. He sent all his credentials and licenses and insurance coverages of his business and they came over the next morning and completed the installation extremely fast. He gave a fantastic offer, and lifetime warranty coverage and will even come over and take down system when we replace the roof and place back up at no charge! His wife even saw some plants we had not put in the garden still sitting in containers, and offered and planted them in the spaces we wanted, just to help out. Very friendly, helpful, professional, extremely knowledgeable and even suggested adding Lakeland Electrics Surge Protector protection they provide to go along with the Lightning rods. Yes would have them again on any home anytime."

    "Mr. Jim Gorman who is the owner of the business called me back within a half hour of my email posting. He visited my home 3 days later, inspected things, and told me what the approximate cost would be. He and his helper then installed an entire lightning protection system on both my house and a back garage/storage area. He did things exactly as I wanted in every way. Also threw in a free weathervane which increased the beauty of my home. I would have no objection to recommending this gentleman and his company to anyone who is in need of a competently installed lightning protection system for their home/property. MID-AMERICA LIGHTNING RODS is one fine company run by a man who cares about doing good work according to the latest safety codes etc. Having lost my previous retirement home to lightning, it was very important to me to get this job done and quickly because the thunderstorm season is upon us and with the climate change, those storms are very wicked, especially here out in the country where i live!"

How much do electricians typically cost?

  • Winston Salem, North Carolina Average
    $342
  • Typical Range
    $147 - $503
  • Low End - High End
    $75 - $1,325

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.
