Best Electricians Near You

Licensed Electrical Contractors In Your Area

There are numerous reasons you may need the services of a skilled electrician. If you've built an addition, need upgrade outlets to include USB ports, or are looking to upgrade your electrical panel, you should get quotes from several experts to ensure the job is done safely, correctly, and for a good price. On the other hand, if you're seeing problems like flickering lights and circuits tripping frequently or you have no power to something critical like an appliance, you should find an electrician near you who can quickly get started on repairs.

In addition to being able to respond quickly in many cases, electricians familiar with the homes in your neighborhood may be able to offer advice to avoid future issues. For example, they may know that homes in your area were built at a time when households drew less power so you should upgrade your circuit breaker panel. Or they may recommend whole house surge protectors if surges are common in your area.

No matter the reason you need an electrician, here are some questions to ask before you hire.

  • Do you have a license?
  • Are you bonded and/or insured?
  • Do you offer a warranty?
  • How much will I pay for the project(s)?
  • Will you be doing the work or someone else?
  • Will you pull all necessary permits?

When comparing contractors, be sure to ask about their specialties, especially if you need help with a larger project like installing power in an addition or a commercial building or upgrading old knob and tube wiring.

"The work was for my residence in a high rise condo in Fairfax County, require permitting for electrical that meets commercial code. Franco worked with me to ensure he had all the data for successful permitting. Then he and Mike came out and did outstanding work installing recessed lights in four areas of my condo (advised options wonderfully!), created a new installation from scratch for a chandelier, installed below and above cabinet lighting for my kitchen, which I love, and he consolidated my electronics (signal and power) into one closet so I could use RF remote control for my TV, leaving a very clean "just the TV on the wall" installation - no visible cable boxes or BluRay players. BAM! Do I sound happy? I am very happy. Call Franco. He's trustworthy in your home and with your precious electrical work. Bob"

"Hired FFX Electrical/Bill Moore for a multi-part electrical job installing a emergency generator transfer switch and new Over The Range Microwave outlet/micro. Bill did the estimate, reasonable so we contracted. Bill sent Carlos to do the work, and he did a good job; however his english was barely passable, he was a 6 year immigrant electrician and not certified in the US by his own admission when I asked him. Drywall cutting now needs be repaired by another contractor making electrical job good, but not perfect or complete. In addition, when Carlos had to do microwave installation, he required help of his brother, another immigrant."
