    "Ulan and his team were professional, efficient, clean, and friendly. We were looking to install a 40A WallBox EVSE Charger for our Electric Vehicle on the outside of the house. Dealing with 40A is no joke, and given the fact that this was going to be an outdoor location, this installation had to be water-tight and esthetically pleasing. Consisting of a 50foot run of heavy gauge wire, and some pannel re-arrangement, this was not a one-person effort. Ulan brought 2 other high-end electricians with him and they completed this Mid to Upper-Mid level complexity job in 2 hrs. I'm thrilled with the result and would recommend them highly. In fact, I already did. Real Talk: You will be able to find a cheaper estimate, but you'd be hard-pressed to find one with quality and attention to detail at this level. I will be using Asat Tech for any/all electrical work in the future."

    "AFL conduct themselves very professionally, which is rare for contractors these days. The owner himself showed up for the estimate, gave a straight-forward assessment of the project, promptly followed up with an itemized written estimate, and answered all of my questions. Their communication is excellent- as their business cards say, they always answer their phones. Out of the 7 or 8 times I called them, I never reached an answering service, and if I had to leave a voicemail, I got a call right back from them- including once on a Sunday night. Im pleased with the project they did and will use them again."

    Whole house Generators, Air Conditioning, Heating , and 5 more

    "When installing a whole House Generator the most important aspect of the job is the installer, not necessarily the hardware. Of course your research will tell you which unit and manufacturer to buy, The experience when issues arise, either warranty or after install service work is crucial to a seamless customer experience. I purchased a 16kw new unit from Monyer, the team was exceptionally professional, courteous and clean doing the install, after several hours the unit was set to be tested, and no-go. Product did not start, so after troubleshooting they found that a bad part from the factory was put in, so the electrician went back to the office and explained the process for getting a replacement part. By the end of the day, David and Emmy the Customer Support team reached out to me and advised that an entire new unit would be exchanged for the old unit. That is customer service excellance'! When you purchase a large appliance like a Generator and Air Conditioner your relationship for anything correlated to problems, you deal directly with your installer....NOT THE MANUFACTURER! SO as I stated earlier the installers reputation and follow up is key to your successful installation and follow up. Highly recommend Monyer Electric and Generator installation, and I will reach out the net time I have an electrical related issue required. Great people, teamwork at its best and a pleasure to do business with....even through the pandemic that everone states "due to Covid we....." Not a word about it, they conducted business as one would expect!"

How much do electricians typically cost?

  • Glenside, Pennsylvania Average
  • Typical Range
    $193 - $577
  • Low End - High End
    $95 - $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.
