    "Project was done on time, good customer service, quality work. Michael was our electrician and he took care of several tasks for us - installed a chandelier in a 20 ft ceiling, installed two outside light fixtures, disconnected our old spa, and installed the electrical box and fixture for a front porch light. The latter task was much more of a challenge than expected due to the inexplicable presence of 6 stacked 2x4's in the wall right where the light was to be installed. Michael drilled through them to run the wire with minimal damage to the wall, and did a rough patch for us when he was done. And he still honored the original estimate even with the extra work. I'd definitely hire them again."

    "Tien stopped by checking carefully for a reasonable quote. He immediately told that the prewired for EV charger was well set, so that the job is straight forward. He came on time explained details and make the job done perfectly. Very honest, pleasant and experienced. Would like to keep him for future tasks. Highly recommended."

    "Miroslav was phenomenal and, if you are considering an electrician, look no further. He was very communicative and willing to answer all of my questions prior to arrival. He showed up to my house a little early for my appointment, which to me, means he was on time. His workmanship was top notch - paid attention to detail and even went as far as patching up the drywall that needed to be removed to complete the install of my Tesla Home Charger. Miro was a gentleman and thoroughly professional. His number is now stored in my phone and I will now use him whenever the need arises. 5 stars!!!"

    "I was looking to get additional Solar with Jeff. One of the prerequisite was to replace my roof before Jeff would proceed. To replace the roof, I needed someone to remove my current solar panels. I put in a request in yelp and Jeff reached out to me. Jeff was on top of his game with everything, so much that I ended up working with him to get my new solar installed as well. I decided to cancel Tesla and go directly with Jeff. This was probably the SMARTEST move I've done, as he was able to get EVERYTHING done is such a timely manner, from install to getting it up and running with SDGE. It was a huge relieve because the whole process with Tesla was just way too time consuming and slow. My only regret is that I didn't meet Jeff sooner as the process with tesla dragged out so long, that I wasted months for no reasons.The quality of work was amazing. Its the little details that counts. For example, painting the conduit to match my roof and walls. My previous Solar company did NOT do that.On top of all this was that Jeff was super chill and easy to work with, always updated me with everything he did, so I always felt confident throughout the whole process. Highly Recommend. You won't be disappointed!!!!"

    "Al contacted me immediately regarding installation of an electric vehicle charging station. That same day, he personally surveyed the worksite and provided very reasonable quotes for all options - after clearly explaining each of them in detail. After I accepted his quote for my preferred option, Al and his electrician accomplished the installation in an exceptionally professional manner. I now have a â go toâ electrician who is second to none."

    "I had Jason install wiring for a big screen TV, DVD player and the cable control box. The wiring had to be hidden in the walls. He did an incredible job and he did it quickly. Everything looks great and works great. He responded to my needs right away and his prices are very fair. I was impressed enough to give him my old TV set that was replaced. I will use him again when the time comes. No doubt about it."

    "I LOVED the work that Keith and his team did for me. It was so easy from start to finish. The entire team was professional, respectful, and communicative. They absolutely went above and beyond. I have an OLD house and the entire wiring needed to be redone. This seemed daunting and Keith not only walked through the whole process but even had amazing ideas for improving my current lighting situation. We replaced all the fans and lighting fixtures, added canned lights, provided updated switches that dim, added motion detectors for outside lighting, added a plug wherever I wanted and added a new heater/fan for the bathroom. Keith also outlined everything they were doing, the labor costs, and the cost of the materials so everything was so clear and there were no surprises. I am so happy with the results and truly am so appreciative. My house looks so great now!"

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.
