    "I had the pleasure of working with Chris and Formmz on multiple occasions. More recently, they performed work at my Commercial Laboratory location where they performed the following at the highest level; General Carpentry, Electrical, Plumbing, Painting, baseboard and trim work, moving of equipment, ceiling restoration, mold removal, etc. Not only did they complete this in a timely fashion, they were respectful, professional and achieved a high level of quality. It is obvious that they take pride in their work. Thank you, Formmz Team!"

He was on time for the estimate and scheduled the work within 3 days. He was on time to install my lighting fixtures and installed the lights in about 5 hours. He was very polite, neat, and did an excellent job installing the fixtures. I thought the price was fair. I would highly recommend Tasho Electric!"

    "This was our first time working with Lighthouse Restoration Group and our experience with Vlad and Mariusz was great. LRG was excellent in every aspect of service. They visited our home without any service fee and provided a clear estimate and stuck to it. The individuals that inspected our home (Vlad and Mariusz) were the same two individuals that arrived to do the work. They arrived on time, and made sure that the areas where they worked were protected from dust. They expertly installed new wiring in very difficult places and did it without having to remove drywall. They consulted us while working to ensure that we agreed on placement of new outlets and lighting fixtures. They pointed out unexpected wiring problems in a way that was clear and frank but also reassuring. We've hired them back to further investigate and address issues of necessary repair that they found while completing work already agreed upon. We very strongly recommend them!"

    "Brian & the crew did an outstanding job! They repaired and refinished our hardwood floor, converted 2 flights of carpeted stairs into hardwood stairs, and converted our entire 2nd floor from carpeting to LVP. Brian also created a custom butcher block top for our kitchen island and got all of our lighting updated. Brian & team were highly efficient, knowledgeable, and they were flexible with scheduling. When I was indecisive about things, Brian was helpful with offering different suggestions and coming up with creative solutions. Everything turned out great and we will hire him again for our future projects."

    "Allan and his assistant Kevin showed up every day on time and worked through conscientiously throughout each day until five PM. They installed over 40 LED ceiling lights in three rooms, under cabinet LED kitchen lights in three locations, and two recessed in floor outlets. Allan met with us at a local electric supply house to help us select the proper fixtures, and offered suggestions when we needed to order other supplies for another source. Quite a few of the ceiling lights required scaffolding to install as the sloped ceiling height in our family room was almost 19 feet at the peek. He arranged to pick-up and return the scaffolding at a local Home Depot. All said it required over 5 days to complete all the work and it went off flawlessly. Allan and Kevin were a pleasure to work with and offered suggestions and advice throughout the process to insure everything went right the first time. I would highly recommend Allan and will be using him again for some projects on our second floor."

How much do electricians typically cost?

  • Hoffman Estates, Illinois Average
    $320
  • Typical Range
    $147 - $470
  • Low End - High End
    $75 - $900

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.
