    "I was very pleased with Lightning Bug Electric. Tony did such a good job that I had him do some additional work. He even pointed out a problem with my attic fan that could have been a fire hazard and made the repair. I felt Tony provided a good value for the work performed."

    "The owner of the company spent an hour helping me plan the best approach add electricity to our basement so we may finish it in one of 3 different configurations. They came back and did the work in one day as well as hardwire a 220 volt charger for a car in the garage. They also fixed a light that had never worked since we moved in- nice guys, services on day promised, price was fair. We had a lot of work done but because of the creative planning we were able to get both projects finished for less than a competitor. They didn't nickel and dime me- they listened and helped me ask for something better when they figured a way to give me what I wanted cheaper because of a design change - I'll use again -"

    "We have used this company before. I got an appointment for the early afternoon. The technician was personable and accomplished the job (replace ceiling fixture with more modern LED unit). He also checked the electrical panel and found a breaker which was causing heating on the internal bus. He had the needed part on his truck and installed it in minutes. I can not imagine a service call that could be any better!"

    "Chris was great!! He was super knowledgeable and transparent. He installed a fan in my living room. The fan came with a remote and after living with the fan and remote for about a week, I decided that I would prefer to use the light switches instead. Chris made the addition trip out to my house no questions asked and removed the remote function. Talk about customer service! I will definitely be hiring him again to install fixtures in the future."

    "I first used Powersource when building out my restaurant. They handled all electrical from top to bottom on a new build. 15 years later I used them again to upgrade all the electrical in my home. They removed and replaced the panel, wiring, and receptacles, as well as installed fixtures throughout. Top notch work from top notch guys. Would recommend and I have!"

    "A great company that knows that value and service is the way to build a business. Every time I called, the phone was answered by owner Randy Hemrick. He answered every question I had about the generator and the install. I got three estimates, two from well known generator installers and also Hemrick who was listed in HomeAdvisor. Randy's estimate was more than $5000 and $7500 BELOW the two other estimates. The quality of the install was excellent with no surprises or added costs. This guy knows how to build and run a successful business. If you have an electrical project or install, get two or three estimates including Randy's, you will be glad you did."

    "We had a great experience with Hi-Five Electric. They installed a bunch of GFCI outlets, replaced some light fixtures, and problem-solved, replaced, and rewired some light switches that did not work. Jack and an apprentice came out to do an estimate and did a thorough job of investigating what the work involved. They were both very friendly and easy to work with. Elijah and an apprentice came out to do the actual work. Scheduling was easy and communication was good. The actual work turned into a bigger and more difficult job than expected because of some crazy issues with the existing wiring. Some idiot who worked on our house before we owned it apparently fancied themselves an amateur electrician and had really messed things up. But Elijah was excellent and managed to sort everything out. Even though the work was more complicated and took longer than estimated, and even though they ultimately installed a couple more GFCI outlets than we thought were needed, Hi-Five refused to add to the estimate and only charged us that amount. They also left the house clean and tidy. The whole experience was really just excellent. Highly recommend!"

They did a great job repairing our electrical panel and adding some light fixtures for us, and were between one fifth and one tenth of the price of the other quotes I got - really great example of how important it is to shop around, and that not every company just wants your money. We will definitely be hiring them again!"

    "I hired Dependable Electric due to the very accommodating staff, and above all, the great quote for the work done. I had an Electric Vehicle Charging station installed. I purchased my own EV charger for about $640, and I was told the install work, in some areas, could be as much as $1000 to run a 240v dedicated circuit (from the electric panel in my basement to my garage). Not even close! These guys came in under $350 and did a bang up job installing the ev charger right where I wanted it. Works like a charm on the dedicated circuit...and NO MORE PESKY TRIPPED BREAKERS! Quality work!!!"

    "Fantastic Experience! I spoke with Joel on Friday and provided project details (install car charger in garage). He was extremely kind and professional. After sending a few photos of the project area, he was able to provide a very competitive quote via email and schedule the job for Tuesday morning. His technician arrived Tuesday morning and was very pleasant and professional. To my surprise, he found an alternate route for the wiring which would leave zero drywall damage. He finished the job in about an hour, and we couldn't be happier with the outcome, fair price, and professionalism."

Mr. Sullivan called me right away, came out to quote the same day, and was able to get the microwave installed the next day! It looks great, charged me what he quoted, and I'm very happy. He was professional, courteous, and I felt very at ease allowing him into my home as a single female. I will definitely save his number for my next project."

How much do electricians typically cost?

  • Atlanta, Georgia Average
  • Typical Range
    $162 - $524
  • Low End - High End
    $80 - $1,000

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.
