    "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!"

    "Hi my name is Rose, I hired Elevation for my home remodel and it was the best decision I ever made. The girls in the office walked me through each step and was so patient with me to explain the process. They even come out to the jobsite and checked on me several times a week. The crew was wonderful, very kind , and polite. The work was beautiful and if I ever can afford to the rest of my house I will will be calling them back!! I appreciate you guys and gals at Elevation!!!!"

    "Gairy of TG&T and an associate just finished a job for me today and I am nothing but pleased. Gairy was extremely courteous and was very prompt in arriving exactly at the time he said he would. Upon coming into my home he and his associate had diagnosed some of the issues I pointed out in a matter of minutes and had even fixed one of the problems immediately. My assumption was that he'd walk through and provide an estimate for servicing at some other point. Instead, he and his associate not only gave amazing pricing and made multiple suggestions to fix the issues in ways that I could easily understand, they also fixed it all right then. One of the things I needed done was an added outlet in my garage which required extensive wiring through the walls. While I sat back and watched tv, they quickly and professionally took care of it, providing me updates throughout the work. And when he stated the price, I had to ask again just to clarify because I assumed it would be much more. I will never call another electrician as long as I own this home. TG & T has a customer for life!"

The repair was better than the original installation. I could not be happier with the job that was done. Would recommend them to anyone without any hesitation. Great, great company."

    "Gerald and Christian were outstanding! 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!"

    "The work Stephen did was professional and updated the entire plumbing system for my home which was built pre 1948. I crawled under the house and with him to see the issues from original installation and subsequent repairs/additions since 1948 to simply the size of drainage pipe utilized (1â was inadequate) and the necessity to have water drain â downhillâ . He replaces the entire exit pipe system, tightened sink exit connections and cleared a bathtub drain. The bad smell emanating from the pipe is now gone. The homeâ s plumbing is updated and on top working condition. Thank you so much"

    "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!"

    "John Sherlock and his wife Corrine called within 1/2 hour of looking for Lightning Rod installers. He was available and was over to talk with us within one hour. He sent all his credentials and licenses and insurance coverages of his business and they came over the next morning and completed the installation extremely fast. He gave a fantastic offer, and lifetime warranty coverage and will even come over and take down system when we replace the roof and place back up at no charge! His wife even saw some plants we had not put in the garden still sitting in containers, and offered and planted them in the spaces we wanted, just to help out. Very friendly, helpful, professional, extremely knowledgeable and even suggested adding Lakeland Electrics Surge Protector protection they provide to go along with the Lightning rods. Yes would have them again on any home anytime."

How much do electricians typically cost?

  • Decatur, Georgia Average
    $328
  • Typical Range
    $161 - $557
  • 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.
