    "Hello, The electrician who came to my home was Ilya from RVA Electrical Services. I would love to provide a glowing review for RVA Electrical Services. Ilya responded to my request for contact within minutes and was here the same day to give me an estimate which was very reasonable to reinstall my chandelier that had been pulled from the ceiling. He spotted the fact that the fixture was never installed with a box according to code originally and he fixed everything the same day. Then he gave me a very reasonable estimate for replacing 4 defective halogen recessed lights in another room and returned the following week to do that work. While he was there, he installed two new switches including a dimmer switch for the recessed LED lights and he did that for free. The fixtures he chose and installed so quickly and neatly are great and the dimmer seems in dispensable now. He had to open our electrical service board to turn off the service while installing the switches and showed me all the things that were not done according to code the last time we had that replaced. He gave us an estimate for replacing the board and I know we will call him when we are ready to do that. He is a very nice person, does great work in record time for a good price and is very neat. I'm so glad we found him through Angie's List."

    "I have nothing but praise for One Hour! I value greatly the quality of the services and products this company promotes, provides, and utilizes, and also know firsthand the depth of their honesty and integrity! Being a life-long asthmatic and allergy suffer, my home always needs to be a haven of healthy breathing for me, so I was relieved to know that One Hour had real and effective solutions to my problems. I suspected mold issues in our home, in addition to the obvious high volume of dust accumulation since my asthma was becoming persistent and out-of-control. I was experiencing regular asthma attacks and was beginning to feel quite desperate. So, besides taking my medication, I reached out to One Hour so they could evaluate the quality of my home air, and to make sure everything was OK. However, things were not fine. But things did begin to improve upon the installation of two of their products, the MicroPower Guard and OxyQuantum UV lights. If fact, recently I just changed out the filter (since it was time to do so), and was amazed to see the amount of dust collected on it which is a great thing! I certainly don't want to breathe that in my lungs. Also, I have noticed less dust accumulation around my home, and it also takes longer to build up too. So, I truly believe these products are working effectively and efficiently (as they need to be), and also find peace of mind knowing that the UV lights are killing the mold spores around-the-clock and preventing them from growing back! I am also glad to report that my asthma and allergies are much more under control, and it feels wonderful to breathe more normally, and without persistent fear of wondering when my next asthma attack will occur. Cheers to One Hour! Will L."

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.
