    "Joey Azevedo is a true professional and an expert in the HVAC world. He went above and beyond the basic install and did a totally custom job . I had used the only attic access for a whole house fan, so Joey wasnt able to see in the attic when he bid the job. He kept to his original estimate despite having to do quite a bit of custom ducting and confined space work at no extra cost. He knows his shit!"

    "I recently had CJ Electric install a Tesla charger in my garage, and I couldn't be happier with the service. From start to finish, everything was perfect. The installation was flawless, and the charger works perfectly. Not only that, but the prices were great, and the team had excellent attitudes throughout the process. I highly recommend CJ Electric for any electrical needs."

    "I had a shed installed in my backyard a few weeks ago and I needed a few outlets and a set of lights installed in it as I intended to use the shed for crafting and using power tools. I called a few places prior to Crusaders but nobody wanted to give me a general idea of costs or whatâ s involved without coming out. I get not giving concrete prices but as I was shopping around I wanted to know what to expect. I called Crusaders Electric and spoke with Paul, whom I gave my plan to and he was able to give me a nearly fixed price on the project. Once he came out, he didnâ t try to upsell me rather he gave me simpler and better options.. What I had thought would be necessary, he deemed â overkillâ and Iâ m happy that he did because it saved me some money, and I couldnâ t be happier with the results. Itâ s everything I need, and he was professional about the installation and overall work. This guy has experience and itâ s clear in his easy-going conversation and quality of work. I highly recommend Crusaders Electric if you need electrical work done. Doesnâ t hurt to get his opinion and Iâ m glad I did."

    "There arenâ t enough positive words in the dictionary to describe Alex. When other electricians were gouging me with estimates, Alex came in, gave me a reasonable estimate, and I hired him on the spot. When it came to the work, Alex was on time, and showed up with the most positive attitude and smile on his face. I was one of those customers that sat and bothered him the whole time because he was so easy to talk to. It really felt like I had a friend doing the work with how he didnâ t get annoyed and engaged in conversation with me. Letâ s just say, I absolutely will not allow another electrical company to do any work for me unless it is Capitol Electric. And even more so, if itâ s Alex. You will not be disappointed in their work, their prices, or their attitudes and personalities."

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.
