If you're having trouble with your lighting fixtures, it's time to call in the pros. Electrical issues can be dangerous for inexperienced homeowners to deal with, and it's much smarter to deal with a licensed professional for a job like this. Not only will it keep your home safe, but it can keep you safe from electrocution or fire. With that being said, it can be tough to guess what lighting repair prices to expect. The cost of the licensed electrician will be basically the entire expense, but here are some factors that could affect your lighting repair.

Age of Your Home

If you have a newer home, then a repair should be relatively straightforward. Something may have just shorted out or could be malfunctioning, but the overall system should be still working well. At the very least, the wires will be newer and easier to work around or with if the electrician needs to install anything new. Older homes have older wires and are typically harder to reach and in need of an upgrade. If you repair unearths some bigger electrical problems with old wiring, then a simple lighting repair can become more expensive.

Fixture Access

If your pro can easily access the problem, then lighting repair prices should be low. This is typically true with newer houses. If the electrician needs to cut through walls or ceilings to access the wires necessary, then the lighting repair prices will go up.

Outdoor Lighting

If you need help with outdoor lighting, then there are some other factors to consider when estimating outdoor lighting repair costs. Generally, outdoor lighting isn't quite as complicated as other home tasks, and can be less expensive to repair. These contractors often offer a variety of services, so it might help to bundle the job with other items to get the most bang for your buck with your outdoor lighting repair costs. One thing to consider is to add extra outlets outside your home so you don't have to worry about using extension cords for lawn equipment or holiday lighting.

Complexity of the Repair

If the problem with your lighting turns out to be a more complex wiring fix, then it will bring the lighting repair prices up. But in general if it's a problem with your fixture, it should be relatively straightforward and not necessarily an overall wiring issue.
Overall, the complexity of the problem with your fixture, as well as the age of your electrical wiring will determine the lighting repair prices. Outdoor lighting repair costs tend to be a little bit less complex and should be easy for a licensed professional to fix. Just make sure to work with a licensed professional who is versed in the local codes and laws for electrical work. This could save you time and money in the future, as well as ensure the safety of your home.
