    "Joe contacted me promptly in response to my inquiry. Came on time to inspect the job. Was easy to work with. Quoted a reasonable price for the work requested- replace 2 very old fluorescent fixtures with ceiling fans and update 1 fluorescent fixture, close old holes as necessary. Came on date promised. Completed work in a timely and clean manner."

    "Rickey was a fantastic electrician who went above and beyond to help with our apartment’s lighting issues. First, he resolved a simple issue with our breaker free of charge (it was just a switch that needed to be flicked). Then he evaluated an issue with our living room lights flickering, which turned out to be due to a broken light fixture. Rickey drove to Home Depot, bought the type of fixture we requested, and installed it. There was no added charge for any of this, just the cost of the fixture, drive, and the installation. Rickey quoted us a very reasonable price up front and stuck to it. He was also prompt, polite, and friendly. I would highly recommend Rickey for his fantastic work and overall helpfulness."

    "I love working Jamel! Iâ ve been trying to get some tiles in my bathroom repaired for a while. He was helpful and understanding in the scope of work I wanted done, my budget, and my timeline for the project. Heâ s up front about cost and if any changes have to be made to the original quote. Bathroom repairs can be tricky, costly, and stressful but he made the process so smooth. He took the time to explain the repair process - how they were going to repair, what type of material they were using, and why that material was being used. I definitely plan to reach back out to him for other jobs that I need completed in apartment. 10/10 would recommend to a friend."

    "They did a good job and fast, picked up the fixture for me in the store, were polite and friendly. The price was high but I am not a good bargainer â just wanted to be done with it, so you may have better skills. The job was done as promised and I am happy with it. They were also trying to explain everything, but I kinda was not interested but this was a good thing for them to do. I think I will use them in future."

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.
