    "Our HVAC system was 24 years old when Steve assessed our needs and listened to what we were looking for in a new HVAC system. His recommendations, costs, warranty, and commitment for any follow up services, were exactly what we were looking for! We spoke with several satisfied customers and were absolutely convinced to go with Tri State Mechanical Consultants and Steve! Steve was very patient with me as I asked dozens of questions while he installed our new systems. To this day, Steve will call to see if I have any questions or issues. I highly recommend this company and Steve!"

    "WONDERFUL! This company proves that there are still honest people out there!!!!! Paul and Sam and two fine examples of this. They were extremely knowledgeable and friendly. They took the time to answer all of my questions and explain things in detail. I had reached out to AnyWeather for a second opinion after working with another company and receiving feedback and an estimate for what was wrong and what repairs I needed. Paul was scheduled to come out and provide an estimate but he was so thorough in his inspection that he pointed out that the initial company had given me the wrong information about the coolant in my system (in order to pressure me into buying a new system). AnyWeather worked with me to get a temporary solution by adding in more coolant for the time being. I will still end up needing a new unit but they were honest and transparent about all of the unit's issues and I will absolutely be getting it through them. I was more than happy to display their sign in my yard and hand out business cards and note pads with their info to all of my co-workers and friends! These guys are great!"

    "Mr. Jim Gorman who is the owner of the business called me back within a half hour of my email posting. He visited my home 3 days later, inspected things, and told me what the approximate cost would be. He and his helper then installed an entire lightning protection system on both my house and a back garage/storage area. He did things exactly as I wanted in every way. Also threw in a free weathervane which increased the beauty of my home. I would have no objection to recommending this gentleman and his company to anyone who is in need of a competently installed lightning protection system for their home/property. MID-AMERICA LIGHTNING RODS is one fine company run by a man who cares about doing good work according to the latest safety codes etc. Having lost my previous retirement home to lightning, it was very important to me to get this job done and quickly because the thunderstorm season is upon us and with the climate change, those storms are very wicked, especially here out in the country where i live!"

    "Came over one day to look at our electric needs and give us a realistic quote/estimate. ( He helped us to determine how to best take care of our electrical needs, for both the safest and budget friendly way. )He also had the quote and future date of installation sent to our email address. His Office, called the next day to confirm quote and date work would be done On another day, at our convenience, a different Electrician came. He added the needed electric outlet, installed duct work, and completed the installation for our electric dryer. He asked us to check out his work and turned on the dryer to show that our project was complete. (Both men visiting our home, wore a facial mask, called ahead, gave their name, showed ID, and even wore carpet protectors over their shoes,so we felt safe and our white carpet remained clean.)"

    "EXCELLENT WORK! WE ARE MORE THAN HAPPY WITH THE SERVICE PROVIDED BY BRODBECK. We are extremely satisfied with the service. This company was extremely responsive to every email and text we sent to them. They were quick to come out to give us an estimate and returned a more than fair quote. The owner reached out to us to schedule us. Zach and Kaleb/Caleb did the actual work. They were quick, efficient, clean, and polite! They were PROFESSIONAL. We have other work that needs to be done in our home. They will be definitely be our first choice. In addition to installing our hot tub, they added some much needed outlets in our basement. The team communicated their work to us, spent time explaining safety and anticipating issues, for instance if the circuit was tripped for some reason and our hot tub was not coming on, what to do. We highly recommend. them."

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.
